Try throwing a lightweight blanket over it, if you can get near it. Then put in 
med. dog carrier.

Call cornell vet school & ask how to take to Janet Swanson wildlife clinic.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] snow geese and sand hill cranes

2021-03-20 Thread Donna Lee Scott
No guarantee on seeing Snow geese tomorrow, but worth a try. They are often 
here today and gone tomorrow.

I looked for Sandhill cranes in sev. Montezuma Complex places & didn’t see any.
But others reported a few of them, days ago, so good to look around.

I did see lots of Canadas & lots of ducks.
Northern Pintails & Shovelers at MNWR visitors Ctr & other areas.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Snow Geese on Cayuga Lake

2021-03-19 Thread Geo Kloppel
West Danby: Around 1:00 pm I saw a number of flocks of Snow Geese just 
entering the Cayuga Basin from the south. Not sure how extensive the flight 
was, but that mid-day timing always suggests a dawn origin in the coastal 
regions to our south. So, not entirely over yet!

Can confirm! No where near the numbers we had on 3/17 (conservatively 400,000), 
but there are two large rafts on the lake as of 5:20pm. One raft can be viewed 
from Cayuga Lake SP and the larger group viewed from Wolffy’s Grill &

RE: [cayugabirds-l] Snow Geese?

2021-03-19 Thread Johnson, Alyssa
Check the east side of the lake between Cayuga and Union Springs. Some folks 
who came into the MAC told us they saw them across the lake from Cayuga Lake 
SP. I've also seen in a hunting group I'm in, that they've been seen in the air 
over Auburn. I'm not sure if they are leaving us yet, we already thought that 
once, and then BAM! St Patrick's Day we got lucky.

None (to my knowledge) have been seen on the ground in the Montezuma Wetlands 
Complex today. Possible there's some way out in the Main Pool at the refuge, 
but they're hard to see unless the take flight.

We are seeing big numbers of Northern Pintail right now, check out Sandhill 
Crane Unit on Van Dyne Spoor Road, the wetlands in front of DEC Office on 
Morgan Road, and May's Point off 89.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Snow geese and bald Eagles

2021-03-17 Thread Nancy Cusumano
They were all heading north as we were leaving, like half as many on the water 
as wine we arrived. Will the come back south again tomorrow, or keep goin? 
Anyone want to guess?

It was a truly amazing sight and sounds. The amount of birds in the air at any 
one time made it look like the sky was fluttering.

We received a count from a very experienced birder after I left the area, he

had definitely grown from when I saw it around 11:30 am.

RE: [cayugabirds-l] snow geese...?

2021-03-11 Thread Johnson, Alyssa
Don't be fooled by the "snow geese" on the south side of Route 31, there is a 
large spread of decoys in front of a hunting blind there. Much of the land on 
either side of the road is privately owned (except for the eastern-most portion 
along the Seneca River, that's USFWS owned). There is also another spread of 
decoys between the split of 31/89 and East Road, on Route 89, northern side of 
the road. I've been tricked before!

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] snow geese...?

After an enjoyable counting of bald eagles at Onondaga Lake this morning I 
drove across to Montezuma Wildlife Refuge. On Rt. 31 mucklands there were large 
numbers of snow geese on the south side of the road as well as many more 
landing further north but out of sight range.

At Carncross Rd. there were many Canada geese and some ducks on the front 
waters, but many snow geese were behind them on other open water stretches.

Hopefully they will be in closer viewing range in the coming days.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Snow geese

2020-03-04 Thread Mark Deutschlander
I saw several very large flocks of Snow Geese on CR 4 between Geneva and 
Canadaigua today.  This afternoon a flock of at least 150 thousand was on the 
corner of Gates Rd and CR 4.  As a biologist who studies passerine migration, I 
find Snow Geese migration to be an awe inspiring spectacle.  Simply amazing.  I 
can’t imagine what these flocks look like as they converge onto their breeding 
grounds.

Knox-Marsellus Marsh had 10,000+ Snow Geese this afternoon, and the
Mucklands hosted another flock of perhaps 6,000. EURASIAN WIGEON were
present both at Knox-Marsellus and Morgan Road in Savannah. The best bird
of the day was a EURASIAN GREEN-WINGED TEAL with the Green-winged Teal

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Snow Geese

2019-01-05 Thread Dave Nutter
Thanks for the report, Tom.  It’s true, no Snow Geese were reported on 1 
January within the Ithaca Christmas Count circle, nor so far as I know during 
the Count Week (3 days prior & 3 days after, which was 29 Dec 2018 - 4 Jan 
2019), so it looks like we missed them. 

A map of the Ithaca Christmas Bird Count can be found on the Cayuga Bird Club 
website. The 15-mile diameter circle is centered atop Mt Pleasant. Its northern 
extent covers parts of Pleasant Valley Rd in the Town of Groton. The count 
circle extends far enough north to include the Ithaca Yacht Club and more along 
the southwest shore of Cayuga Lake but not quite to Myers Point along the 
northeast shore of the lake. To the west the count circle includes part of 
Sheffield Rd on the Ithaca/Enfield town line. To the east it includes most of 
the Village of Dryden. To the south it barely includes the hamlet of Danby, and 
also includes Belle School Rd. I believe there is a more precise map somewhere 
which allows zooming in to determine exact boundaries. 

Any reports for those dates within the count circle would be most welcome 
regarding Snow Geese as well as lots of other species we missed. We are envious 
of the reports of those gorgeous birds from farther north! 

Meanwhile reports are also welcome anytime regarding new species for 2019 in 
the Cayuga Lake Basin (generally, lake drainage plus south-draining lands north 
of the Seneca River/Erie Canal), or reports of rarities anywhere near the 
basin, or just plain exciting bird finds or phenomena. 

Although we missed Snow Geese in the southern part of the Cayuga Lake Basin, 
there is a huge raft of them in the middle of Cayuga Lake in its widest part 
near Aurora. From NYS-89 on Thursday afternoon it was opposite the Beer Garden 
by Poplar Beach Rd. It looks like a white island, often with a mist cloud of 
white birds over it. Those geese typically commute to feed in farm fields in 
the northern part of the Cayuga Lake basin.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Snow Geese

2018-03-18 Thread Candace Cornell
I could not guess the number of geese out today off of Cayuga State Park,
as the gigantic rafts spread as far as I could see up and down the lake.
When I reported "tens of thousands" of geese, I would have said a million,
but for fear of exaggeration. Their collective noise at rest is impressive.

Eyes to the sky-the migration is on! The osprey will arrive starting March
29 +/-.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Snow geese

2017-03-23 Thread Dave Nutter
Today I drove from Ithaca to Montezuma NWR & back on the west side of Cayuga 
Lake. Notable Snow Goose sightings included: 

Around 11am flocks of hundreds in lines and vees over Covert flying east toward 
the lake. 

Around 5pm hundreds covering and grazing on the sheep pasture beside NYS-89 
between Schuyler Creek and the Varick-Fayette Townline Road. They were nibbling 
grass, not rooting in corn. 

Quite a few moderate-size rafts on Cayuga Lake fairly close to the west shore 
as I drove south in the evening. I did not notice the single giant raft in the 
middle of the lake which I consider typical.

I also recall that on 25 February, when Gary, Ann, & I went to Oswego to see 
the Clark's Grebe, we saw thousands of Snow Geese migrating north to, then 
northeast around Lake Ontario. I assume this was the exit of a big portion of 
the Cayuga Basin's first big wave of Snow Geese. I think we may have a 
different and smaller group now from a more recent wave.

Re:[cayugabirds-l] Snow Geese 3

2017-03-23 Thread Donna Lee Scott
Hard to tell for sure, but it looks like some Snow Geese that flew west a hour 
or more ago, are returning to & landing in the large flock that remains on the 
lake.
This flock took flight a few times, flew a little to north, & landed again each 
time, so now they are in lake, west of, right across from, my abode at 535 
Lans. Stat. Rd.

RE: [cayugabirds-l] snow geese

2017-03-17 Thread Marty Schlabach
We had numerous small flocks fly over our house this morning.  Probably 20+ 
flocks of 50-100 birds, coming from the direction of Cayuga Lake and flying 
southwest.  Not sure where they were headed.

This evening about 5:30pm there was an enormous flock of snow geese on the 
ground in fields east of Co Rd 129 between Wycoff and Munson Rds in Ovid.   I 
would guess 20-30 acres (and perhaps more) just covered with snow geese.

It's right around the corner.

On another note, has anyone seen the Gyrfalcon of late?

I've been down there about 12 times and have not seen it. I've found 
EVERYTHING but!! I found the fountain of youth, the lost city of 
Coronado, the lost Inca gold, even the Holy Grail.  But alas, no falcon

Enjoy the sunshine all. It's REAL medicine.

At 8 am this morning, there were several thousand snow geese flying over 
and browsing in stubble in the northwest corner of Covert & 
south-central portion of the town of Ovid. All the flying geese were 
headed south, some funneling into the fields and the rest only 
moderately high up, looking like they more likely were headed for 
breakfast locally than a trip to Pennsylvania. Alicia

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Snow Geese Sun. West Side of Lake

2015-03-30 Thread Donna Scott
About 1pm Sunday from east side of Cayuga L. I saw many 100s (1000s?)  SNOW 
GEESE near west shore, probably ones Sandy saw. 
At the same time well south of them I saw (scoped) two long skinny rowing boats 
moving north by west shore. 

Later, after doing work away from windows, I looked towards where Snow Geese 
had been  they were gone. Right where the geese had been resting was one of 
the long skinny (dragon?) boats w many rowers, who no doubt scared away the 
geese. 

Also saw 2 motor boats on lake, heading north yesterday. Fishing season opened 
I guess. Risky being out in boats w water being ~33• .

  Yes, Fall Creek has rats.  Also, I found a wing and duck torso skeleton 
 nearby and wonder who at it.  I will post the picture on Facebook CBC.)
 
 Driving down the hill from Upper Taughannok, we saw a tremendous huge raft of 
 bobbing balls of white, which I guessed was Snow Geese, perhaps hundreds of 
 thousands of them spanning from somewhere between the salt mine to Sheldrake 
 Point.  So we estimated the line formation which was changing from blob to 
 line formation extending about 2/3 of the distance from the west side to the 
 east side of the lake.  We tried to get closer at Barton Camp but still could 
 not identify them.  By the time we got to Sheldrake, the mass was gone.  
 However, there was a smaller flotilla of about several thousand down one of 
 the beach roads (right after a red barn when heading north).  We got to 
 within 25 yards and could see about 10 Blue Geese (my first!).  After about 
 fifteen minutes and a few outbursts of gaggling, they all stated to drift 
 out to the middle of the lake, then they started to all face north EVERY ONE 
 OF THEM, then they formed a line and pushed into one another while all 
 reorienting themselves east, EVERY ONE of them facing east.  this orienting 
 took about four minutes and all of this was video taped.  Then it was as if 
 someone shot the start gun, and one by one in a flash, they all took flight 
 in the most orderly manner.  I was in awe and yelling out what I was 
 watching.  I could not believe it.  Has anyone ever seen this behavior 
 before?  Perhaps this is common, but I had no idea that there was this kind

Last Wednesday there were several hundred Snow Geese in the cut-over corn field 
along Rt 31. North side of the road. West of the Potato Building. The field was 
still snow-covered and frozen, but I would expect there to be many more geese 
there by this weekend.

Just watched four Vs of Snow Geese overhead heading toward Ithaca,
beautiful against the blue sky. I thought I spotted a very small goose in
one of the flocks, but after getting the binocs, it turned out to be a blue
phase whose darker wings blended in with the sky. All the rest of the geese
were white.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] snow geese sightings?

2014-03-21 Thread Donna Scott
Thursday I saw many flying over Sapsucker Woods area about 2 PM. Then when I 
drove to Meadowridge Vet Clinic on rt. 34 in No. Lansing, I saw a large flock 
landing in a corn stubble field just north of Vet's office. 
So, driving around where there are old corn fields can offer good views of Snow 
Geese. I enjoy this 'cause I see other birds along the way. I usually work my 
way over to the lake after a drive in the countryside.

Saw many in a field on right going north on Rt. 89past Sheldrake.  
They flew west, not far. 

Gorgeous pattern of bright whites and dark wing tips against an ominous 
purplish sky!

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Snow Geese on the move

2014-03-12 Thread Bill Evans
My understanding is that generally the longer the migration delay the more 
birds are ready to fly, so I agree with David that the potential exists for a 
huge waterfowl flight up from the mid-Atlantic if the weather sets up right. On 
the other hand, if weather is not suddenly conducive, we could see dribs and 
drab pushing northbound through semi-conducive conditions.

I remember the great raptor migration release after the winter of 92-93 thaw.  
We had the very tough blizzard in mid-March 93 and when the sun finally melted 
through the hefty snow deposit (~10 days later) there was a very impressive 
flight noted from Mount Pleasant.  Favorable migration weather began about 
March 23, but the big raptor pulse didn’t begin until the snow had largely 
melted on Mar 26th -- a substantial pulse then continued on most days through 
Apr 8th. During this period nearly 1500 raptors were tallied, and this didn’t 
include any Broad-wingeds. There were 31 Goldens, and symptomatic of that time 
only 3 Balds. Notable were 282 Red-shouldereds, including an impressive 109 on 
March 31st.  That latter day was amazing with over 400 raptors in passage. 
There were still remains of a huge snow drift on the south side of the 
observatory, but skies were sunny and the temp must have reached at least well 
into the 60s because I recall Cornell students Adam Byrne and Ned Brinkley had 
taken off their shirts and were pretty well sunburned by day’s end.  Ironman 
Bernie Guirey compiled the Mount P totals in those days, and for this period 
from Mar 26-Apr 8 (minus two days with unfavorable migration conditions) the Mt 
P watch site was covered for an average of 6 hours a day. Thanks to Tom Salo, 
the data was tracked down a few years ago and submitted to Hawkwatch.org, but I 
notice it’s not currently online – perhaps due do to the fact that start times 
were missing from the data. I will forward a copy of the historic data I have 
to the Cayuga Bird Club so that it might be posted on CBC website.

Tom prompted me awhile back to see if we could get coverage up at Mt P again. 
The Mt P hawk watch came together spontaneously back in the early 90s. Such an 
effort takes the favorable circumstances of one or more folks free to organize 
and enough others available to help out and fill in so that continuous coverage 
on at least the good and moderately good flight days is maintained. Any future 
efforts should follow the standardized counting format noted on hawkwatch.org

Needless to say for many of you, it appears the conditions have potential for 
some big raptor flight days in the next few weeks.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Snow Geese flying south over Ithaca - hundreds. --...

2012-12-28 Thread Geo Kloppel
During the last hour, about 1,000 Canada and 300 Snow Geese flew over my head 
and out of the basin in what looked like determined southbound migration. The 
high hilltops (circa 1900 feet) seemed to scrape the cloud ceiling earlier, but 
perhaps it is lifting enough to embolden migrants...

Same thing happening between Cayuga  Seneca Lakes: at 5:00 PM today, tens of 
thousands of Snow Geese coming out of the north and flying SSE over Rock River 
 Wycoff Roads in Ovid, in steady streams with hardly a break between flocks.  
I could only stay about 10 minutes, so have no idea how long the river of 
flocks continued.   They were flying pretty much parallel to Cayuga Lake, hard 
to say just where they were headed.

RE: [cayugabirds-l] snow geese movement

2012-02-21 Thread Meena Haribal
Hi Alicia and all,



On Sunday, I was along Rt 89 in the afternoon around 3.00 pm, when I saw 
several huge flocks of snow geese crossing each other, one head heading north 
east and the other heading south east at the junction of 89 and County road 139 
Road.   So I turned left at the junction thinking they might be somewhere 
nearby, but they seemed to go beyond woods. So I decided follow the ones 
heading northeast.  I followed them for ten+ miles (based on my odometer) on 89 
and they were headed to that group of snow geese, which seem to hang out in the 
middle of lake near Aurora and Dean's Cove area. here is a map of there 
locations.  http://g.co/maps/3nxvt



So I walked down to lake from Whitlock Preserve hoping to be somewhat nearer. I 
was a quarter mile closer but they were still far off. While I was there I saw 
many more landing, all coming from south and landing right in the middle of the 
flock facing north direction. It was wonderful to watch them. And even from 
that distance, I could hear their raucous.



So now I know at least they are heading past Wycoff Road.  Would be fun to find 
their feeding location.

Hi all, 
I had an errand to run along the lake, so after the errand (which did not
work out), I decided to head further north in the hopes of seeing Snow Geese
 When I arrived, sun had already set and I hardly saw any snow geese. Only 
a few were visible and a few  were landing behind the vegetation. I was
disappointed at that and was about head back when I heard the swishing noise
 looked back there was a huge snow geese cloud rising from the muck. They
often settle back soon after one such burst and that is it.  But this swarm
kept circling. I watched for 5 minutes as I did not want to miss the show.
Then I grabbed my camera and started shooting video. I was wearing only
T-shirt and it was getting freezing. I thought I might miss this action so
did not bother to waste time get my jacket. Then this went on and on even my
hands started shaking due to cold. So stopped and grabbed my coat. For
nearly half an hour they swirled and circled. They waxed and waned, they
came in as rising and falling tide. When they were heading towards me when I
looked up, there was dizzying effect on me as the waves and waves flew over
me. It was amazing to watch them. With shaking hand and steadying hand I
managed to get some fifteen minutes video. I wish I had mounted the camera
on the tripod. 
 
I am not sure what made them circle so long. Were they thinking of heading
south as cold is expected to night? Many birds, especially shore birds do
this kind of flight when they are in hurry to migrate. Or were there any
hunters on the ground that made them take to wing and probably every time a
small group landed they got shot at so they took to flight again. I hope
that was not the case. I hate to think myself as snow goose, especially if I
the cute Ross's Goose (which I saw many at Bosque del Apache) and get
continuously shot at by some nasty human when I am ready to rest and sleep. 
 
Here is a video about a minute  at YouTube. As this is a large file, takes
time to load, I suggest wait for it completely download (watch the grey line
reach the end) and then watch instead of in snatches. Hope you too enjoy it.

RE: [cayugabirds-l] Snow Geese and others

2011-03-12 Thread Bill Ostrander
Our Chemung Valley Audubon group was at Knox-Marcellus when all the Snow
Geese took off from the mucklands.  When we arrived at the Potato building,
there was only one Snow Goose to be seen, the one that four young hunters
carried back to their rendezvous point at the Potato Building.  It looked
like they were probably done for the day.  I asked them what the bag limit
was, and they said 25 per person per day, so they were short of their
combined limit by 99 birds.  It's going to take a long time to reduce the
population by hunting if every time one gets shot, the other quarter million
fly away.
 
We saw Jay, Tim, and Hope at Sheldrake.  I did forget to tell Jay one other
unusual bird we saw was a Red-shouldered Hawk perched in one of the bushy
trees far across the marsh due west of the visitors' center at the Refuge.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Snow Geese and others


Hi all, 
I went to north side of the lake, specially in search of Snow Geese. I was
not disappointed. Along the Drake Road, I found some tom Turkeys under usual
feeders.  Center Road was quiet except for couple of Horned Larks. But as I
was passing the road, I encountered my first flock of Snow Geese passing
over me heading somewhere along 34 B.  By the time I got the camera out, the
birds were gone. But I considered that as a good omen for things to come
ahead next. 
After a short detour on 90, I took my favorite Dixon road from Rafferty.
Nothing special but many robins along the road, a flock of about 100
grackles with a few Red-winged mixed in and a Kestrel. At the end of the
road I headed down to the lake, which comes out at Aurora Fire Station.
Along the lake north, I stopped at Factory Pond. As Bill noted it was devoid
of any ducks, but sleeping Screechie. At the same spot there was a very
entertaining Starling doing all kinds of mimicry including Meadow Lark. So I
spent some time with him trying my camera.
 
Next, I stopped at Cayuga Village road just off of 90. Here I encountered
huge flocks of Snow Geese flying overhead, which I found were heading to
other side of the lake as the lake was mostly frozen around this area. There
were many ducks but I did not spend time watching them as I was on an
assignment, so shot some B rolls. I went to the water's edge at Cayuga park
where I encountered Jay et al. 
 
Along Lake Road, I got a nice Common Goldeneye. Then headed to visitor
Center for a short stop. Then I headed to Mucklands via East Road. From East
Road, I could see huge flocks of Snow Geese in the muck. So I headed
directly there. From both sides of the road there were thousands of Snow
Geese and were just abut 300 mt from the road. I parked at the Potato
building and hid behind the building and watched and took shots (not with
guns but with a camera). I spent an hour or so when my battery died. 
When the whole group on the east side of the road rose, it made such a
swishing noise, it was soothing and hypnotic and amazing. Some took off and
other landed far side of the Muckland. As my battery had died, I wanted to
recharge it, so decided to drive to Carncrass road. While my batter was
charging on my car battery, I watched and took videos of Tundra Swans and
their behaviors. I just watched the shots on my TV and so many amazing
behaviors they seem to have. While I was there several thousands of Snow
Geese went north of Carncrass road, to feed I think. But watching them
overhead, made me feel dizzy as they made several kinds of patterns, V, U,
M, N and Xs. I watched one X it had amazing movements, one group went west
and other group east, but maintained that X for quite some time. I shot some
part of it and watched it home, it was mind boggling as to how could they do
that. 
 
As always when I watch these movements, I keep thinking who were the members
of each groups, where they random or were they belonging to a specific clan?
If they are clans, how do they keep in touch with each other? What is the
cue to decide to take off? So many things I would like to learn, but I guess
we may need a few more years if not decades to find answers to these
questions with the modern technology. 
 
By the time I headed back, there were no Snow Geese in the Mucklands.
Mucklands seems to be a location with very dynamic activities. 
 
Near Tschache channel, there were a few male Hooded Mergansers displaying to
a couple of females. I stopped a little ahead and wanted to walk back
without alarming them. But some how they sensed my intention,  so they
scooted.
 
On the way back I took again back roads. Near Warrick and another town
(forget name) Townline, I ran into another flock of Snow Geese feeding in
the cornfield. I also ran across Greg and Susan at this point. From here I
headed straight to lab to take care of something. As I was

I drove up the east side of Cayuga Lake early this morning, expecting to
come upon hordes of snow geese at some point.  There were none at the north
end of the lake, and I made it to East Rd. before I had 2 SNOW GEESE fly
over.  Nothing in the Mucklands, but at Carncross Rd., I was just in time to
see the hinder parts of a flock of about 150 SNOW GEESE heading north.  I
spent several hours in the North Montezuma WMA and finally a mess of snows
came in from the NNW.  I estimated about 2000-2500.  Returning to the Potato
Bldg., I found to the south, and partially hidden by Phragmites, about the
same number of snows in a dense mass, mostly sleeping.

With favorable winds, I guess the hordes couldn't wait.  Almost nothing on
the Lake, but thousands of PINTAILS and hundreds of AMER. WIGEON in the wet
fields in the Mucklands.

RE: [cayugabirds-l] snow geese

2010-03-12 Thread John VanNiel
I was at the Mucklands @ 715 this morning and saw tens of thousands of snows, 
on the muck there as well as flying over from what I presumed was the Lake or 
the Refuge. The ones on the muck lifted off at 724 and headed north.

I drove up the east side of Cayuga Lake early this morning, expecting to come 
upon hordes of snow geese at some point.  There were none at the north end of 
the lake, and I made it to East Rd. before I had 2 SNOW GEESE fly over.  
Nothing in the Mucklands, but at Carncross Rd., I was just in time to see the 
hinder parts of a flock of about 150 SNOW GEESE heading north.  I spent several 
hours in the North Montezuma WMA and finally a mess of snows came in from the 
NNW.  I estimated about 2000-2500.  Returning to the Potato Bldg., I found to 
the south, and partially hidden by Phragmites, about the same number of snows 
in a dense mass, mostly sleeping.

With favorable winds, I guess the hordes couldn't wait.  Almost nothing on the 
Lake, but thousands of PINTAILS and hundreds of AMER. WIGEON in the wet fields 
in the Mucklands.
