Re: [cayugabirds-l] Turkey Vultures

2017-10-13 Thread Dave Nutter
This afternoon at about 5pm I saw about 200 Turkey Vultures circling over the 
vicinity of NYS-34/96, Decker Rd, and NYS-13 south of Ithaca near the Newfield 
Town Line. Earlier in the day I had seen smaller numbers southbound along the 
east edge of the Cayuga Lake Valley in Lansing. This afternoon about 3:40 I saw 
some kettling, apparently also southbound over West Hill from Downtown Ithaca, 
likely some of the same Judith reported.

 From the pool at Island Health I watched streams of the vultures going 
south over west hill between 3 and 3:30.

Hi Sara Jane,

For at least the past 3 years, there have been TUVU's roosting during the
fall behind the Varna Community Center, in some tall conifers. I get
neighbors calling me about it every year with a mixture of wonder and
frustration.

 My favorite harbingers of spring, besides the robins and flocks of

 that return to the lean-to along Route 79 in Slaterville Springs (just west

 Does anyone know how many years they've taken up residence there?

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Turkey Vultures

2014-10-13 Thread Dave Nutter
I agree Sunday was a good migration day for Turkey Vultures. At about 1pm I was 
near the Lab entrance looking at the western skyline beyond the pond, and I 
watched a near-continuous line of them flying south, about 60 all told. They 
were gliding and gradually losing altitude, and when they got low enough to 
almost be blocked by trees for me, one of them would find a thermal and start 
circling up. Then all those behind it in line would veer into the thermal, and 
suddenly there would be 20 birds kettling. But it seemed they would only circle 
a few times (2 or 3? it was distracting, but I should have tried harder to 
follow a single bird) before they would peel off the top and continue south. I 
saw this a couple of times there, and then when I went to the Freese Road 
Gardens I saw it again, once to the west and once almost overhead. I saw about 
a hundred southbound Turkey Vultures altogether. There were also a few apparent 
locals, by their behavior.

Re:[cayugabirds-l] Turkey Vultures, dead tagged deer

Thanks to the several people who have responded to this! The universal
recommendation is that I contact Paul Curtis. In case anybody else needs
this information, his email address is

and his website is

 The half dozen or so Turkey Vultures patiently adorning the trees in my
 wooded backyard in Northeast Ithaca alerted me to a dead deer back there.
 The neighborhood deer have been seeming desperately hungry lately - often
 seen standing on tiptoes for a measly handful of hemlock needles,
 shamelessly begging whenever they see me take out the compost, and
 generally looking unhealthy and unsteady.

 There are also some hair-stuffed tubular excreta of some kind in the
 vicinity. They don't quite look like coyote scat to me, so my next guess is
 pellets from the vultures?

 Given the topic of this mailing list, I'll also say that I got fantastic
 views of these grim and gruesome, but interesting and ecologically
 valuable, birds.

 Anyways, the unlucky deer has numbered white ear tags, so I guess somebody
 went to the trouble of sterilizing it. I'm wondering if anybody is
 collecting information about these tagged animals. If anybody has any
 contact info I'd appreciate it!

 Thanks,
 Jesse Ross

RE: [cayugabirds-l] Turkey Vultures

2012-03-19 Thread Meena Haribal
Hey Brad and all,

I did the same too. I scanned the flock three times for Black Vulture, but my 
flock was smaller than yours and had only 22 birds. I just got back from 
watching them. they seemed so care less (as opposed to careless) and 
effortlessly circled around and finally headed up Six Miles Creek, probably 
hoping to roost somewhere. Yesterday afternoon, while I was hanging out laundry 
in my yard, a Bald  Eagle circled over my head fairly close, I was thinking of 
heading inside to my camera, it floated south. But soon returned, but was 
little higher than previous time and circled and floated away to west.
