RE:[cayugabirds-l] Redpolls

2021-03-25 Thread Marty Schlabach
The number of red polls at our feeders has dwindled.  We have had red polls 
consistently since mid-Feb, with a peak number of 80-100.  This past weekend we 
had 20-30, then 12-15 for a couple of days, yesterday 1 and so far none today.  
The goldfinches are gone too.

It's been a treat having red polls around this winter.

We still have a flock of around 40 redpolls at the feeders daily. When they 
land they look like rain!

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Redpolls polls and a science question

2021-03-17 Thread Peter Saracino
Hi Anne.
Great questions.
Don't know about redpolls but I just read today ( Sibley's "What Its Like
To Be A Bird") that with chickadees the birds, themselves, can tell make
from female because the black bib on the males fluoresce more deeply than
on the female.
Trouble is, THAT is something OUR brains aren't wired to see.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Redpolls!

2021-02-25 Thread anneb . clark
There seems to be an inexaustible supply! My feeders now support about 50 and a 
nippy disputatious bunch they are. Lots of pics of heads forward, low, bills  
open until another moves. 
Niger is one focus. The other is bits of suet on the ground from sloppy eaters. 
Lots of really bright rosy breast feathers. 

No Hoary Redpolls though.

My two redpolls that have been here for a week apparently got outed and more 
arrived today. Not 20 yet but 6-7 and feisty!  Niger and those peanut suet 
blocks. Took a close up video of one at suet 5 inches from sliding door. 
Competition from red bellied woodpecker and Pileated is a little one sided., of 
course. 

This is on Hile School rd.  Been putting in eBird here and there

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Redpolls on Mt. Pleasant

2020-11-27 Thread Gary Kohlenberg
I spent time at the Mt. Pleasant East fields this morning most of the time with 
Sandy Podulka looking at Redpolls. There were several flocks flying around and 
disappearing in the grass to feed. As Gladys noted they could disappear and you 
had to have a good angle and elevation to see them. 
We were able to get some good views and Sandy was able to photograph a few. I 
had one candidate for possible Hoary Redpoll. The flocks would separate and 
reconvene making accurate counts difficult, but my total estimate of widely 
separate groups was 150 birds. 
It’s a nice day and birds are visible from the main or side road to the tower 
if your patient.

Sorry-late post.  I walked the dogs a short ways down the tower road yesterday 
11/26.  (Hunting in the woods at the end of that road) As we were walking back 
towards Mt. Pleasant a flock of birds swirled up from the east side of Tower 
Rd.  I suspected Red Polls and returned just after 10 am with my binocs and 
scope.

So-from tower rd. going east, there are plots where they planted potatoes-no 
potatoes, etc.  The flock was in the second strip of dead grass/red clover.  
They were fairly close to Mt. Pleasant road, and would keep coming down in the 
dead grassy/clover strip. They would dissapear!  I managed to find a few 
running around on the ground but very hard to see.  At one point the flock flew 
up and went to the field to the west of Tower Rd.  They quickly  flew up onto 
the wires at the intersection of Tower rd and Mt. Pleasant.  When they were 
swirling and flying around I estimate there may have been about 40 of them.

There are several strips of the grassy/red clover plots, going east from the 
tower rd., they are dark brown and about knee high.

Good birding,
Gladys

Lovely winter sound!

Re. redpolls: 

The Mt Pleasant Rd redpolls were eating the seeds of various weeds in the 
field, many of which actually are introduced species. Over the past few weeks I 
have tried to identify them from the dead plant stems and seed heads...it's not 
easy. Some of them (I think) are chicory, goldenrod (native), dock (not 
burdock), plantain, hyssop, bedstraw and I'm sure there are others. 

BTW, the redpolls are now frequenting the even-weedier field immediately west 
of the white observatory building on Mt Pleasant Rd.

Are there any reports of redpolls at feeders?

At least 100 redpolls were at the corner of Aiken and Tucker Roads, and in the 
weeds further up Tucker today.  I’ve seen them several times here in the last 
few weeks, but this was the first time they let themselves be photographed 
(badly!) and counted!

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Redpolls

2015-01-29 Thread Dave Nutter
The location is in Summerhill near the SE corner of Cayuga County, around Lane 
E in the vicinity of a lake house with thistle socks, tube feeders, and 
platform feeders and nearby houses also with feeders. During almost an hour of 
viewing a flock of about a hundred finches (overwhelmingly AMERICAN 
GOLDFINCHES) which were in the tops of large spruces and deciduous trees, 
flying between trees, and sometimes a few at the feeders, we were able to find 
1 PINE SISKIN and 3 COMMON REDPOLLS.

I've had Redpolls non-stop through the winter, never less than about 50 in the 
neighborhood. Although I suspended feeding them niger several times, they 
stayed and ate black oil sunflower seed.

Multiple Fox Sparrows are singing now. Several Song Sparrows this morning. Wood 
Ducks have been visiting my pond each morning since it opened a few days ago.

 Yesterday we had our first REDPOLL in weeks, and today there were two.
 I joked with Ann Mitchell that yesterday's bird must have been an
 overflow bird from her flock of 50.  So today she must be down to 48.

Why leave for the frozen wastelands of the north when there's plenty of good 
eats right here in the Finger Lakes?
(I know... Kevin McG will answer that sometime they have to get going on mating 
and chick rearing...)

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Redpolls

2013-01-05 Thread Geo Kloppel
They're eating black oil sunflower seed too, but they spill a lot of that on 
the ground, possibly through rummaging for the smallest seeds.

I expect the standard sanitization advice is still to wash feeders thoroughly 
with a 10% bleach solution once a week, paying special attention to crevices 
where disease organisms may accumulate.

Move feeders to new ground occasionally if you can, and stop feeding if you 
begin to see sick birds.

Google bird feeder hygiene for lots more on this topic.

I can finally join the redpolls finally club, as a flock of 10 or so 
descended on my paltry feeders in Northeast Ithaca. I've had none in my yard so 
far and none downtown on the CBC on the 1st -- they seem to finally be entering 
the more urban areas. My birds sampled the black oil sunflower seeds for a 
little while, and never even tried the niger.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Redpolls today

2012-12-25 Thread Gary Kohlenberg
A Christmas surprise was my first ever Redpolls in the yard today. I'm 
officially no longer jealous of all you others with flocks at your feeders. Now 
it's time for a few Evening Grosbeaks. 

Merry Christmas

Redpolls have been audible around my place for weeks, but it took a good 
snowstorm to drive them to the feeders. Had as many as 20 at a time since then.

 Our redpoll count just doubled from yesterday:  we now have TWO.  Ta Da!

 About 17 siskins on niger feeders.  When they left, the resident
 goldfinches returned, about 18 of them.  Hard to count 'em when they
 outnumber the perches on the feeders.

 The snow here (1 to2 inches) has made this a very birdy morning.  We must

2012-12-25 Thread Marty Schlabach
Must be Bill and Shirley are the sharing type, in that we now have a red poll 
or two at our feeder as well, just up the road outside of Interlaken.  Phil and 
Mary Jean saw two the other day, but today was the first day I saw one, a very 
nice Christmas present.  Lotsa goldfinches and more house finches than I've 
seen in quite a few years, but no siskins.

We had a mockingbird in our orchard on South Hill today. It was having a

   I dont recall seeing them in wintertime.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Redpolls - still lots!

2011-03-05 Thread Candace Cornell
I've also had a steady stream of Common Redpolls at my feeds for the past 3
weeks with flocks ranging from 10-60 birds. I have seen several possible
Hoarys among them, but as Laura so aptly described, they move about too
quickly for a positive ID. Redpolls on the tube feeds tend to linger longer,
but all the Hoary candidates have been on the ground, silo feeder, and
bushes.

 Hi all,
  The Redpoll feeding frenzy flock at our home on Hunt Hill Rd., east of
 Ithaca,  has grown to about 120 birds, as a conservative estimate.   I still
 haven't identified a Hoary among the birds - it's hard because they are
 constantly flying up to the trees, then raining down again, then up again
 before I can get a good look. It's a truly amazing sight. In addition to
 covering the feeders, they are scattered all over the snow on the ground.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Redpolls

2011-01-27 Thread John Confer
Until two days ago, we were having occasional, small flocks of redpolls 
at our feeder, and I was jealous of others with consistent, nice-sized 
flocks.  Starting on Tuesday, we have had a flock of about 150 birds 
that come in to feed (largely on sunflower seeds) about 3 times a day. 
It is neat to know there are so many around. We live on the south end of 
Hammond Hill with some farmland adjacent and in the vicinity and also 
with lots of extensive forest cover.
