Re: [cayugabirds-l] Snow goose

2019-08-25 Thread bakkerbird
 We saw a single snow goose at the Crane Unit (Van Dyne Spoor Road) for two 
weeks in April, then not again until July 2.  From late April until last week 
we were not surveying around the unit, only from Van Dyne Spoor Road. It is a 
large area and it is certainly possible that we just didn't see it while we 
were there. We saw it again on 7/30 and so far every week in August. A few 
weeks ago someone witnessed a Trumpeter Swan beating the daylights out of a 
snow goose and was able to post pictures. In one, it looked like a goner! The 
next time we surveyed, it was there. Lately it has been near the road. It seems 
to have recovered, probably hanging out near the road to avoid the swans! It is 
pretty safe to say that this is not an early migrant.

 At VanDyne Spoor Rd late yesterday afternoon near end of road. Flew OK about 
300’ from walking in road, out to marsh, as I approached it. 
Has it been there since last spring or is it early coming south?
I have not been at VDS Rd. In ages, so don’t know what’s been there. Pic:

I don’t know how long it has been there, but it was there on 21 July, molting 
all its primaries.

RE: [cayugabirds-l] Snow Goose history

2013-12-17 Thread Kevin J. McGowan
Very cool.  Google Maps' Distance Measurement Tool says 3386.87 km, or 2,104.5 
miles.  (Or 30,866 football fields; or 16,836 furlongs. Look under the Map Labs 
link in the left column).

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Snow Goose history

Last Thursday on my return from enjoying views of a couple of Snowy Owls in 
Seneca County, I drove NYS-89 along Cayuga Lake, and opposite Ernsberger Road 
(Seneca County Road 128) a saw a raft of SNOW GEESE, nearly all of the white 
flavor and a couple thousand strong, not far offshore. I scanned them awhile, 
unsuccessfully, for Ross' Goose, but I did note a bird with a yellow neck 
collar TC57, which I reported to the USGS bird banding lab (easy: just google 
report bird band. I received a reply today. This female Greater Snow Goose 
was an adult (hatched in 2010 or earlier) when she was banded on 11 August 2011 
on the south plain of Bylot Island in Nunavut, Canada. This is off the 
northeast coast of Baffin Island, about 2000 miles almost due north of us, and 
about 450 miles north of the Arctic Circle. I estimated distances using a 
National Geographic atlas Chamberlin Trimetric Projection map and a ruler. If 
anyone cares to be more accurate, the banding location was 73.1, -79.8. 
Bylot Island is the same area where the same researcher, Gilles Gauthier, has 
banded some other Snow Geese whose collars I have reported in spring further 
north on Cayuga Lake. Some of his collared birds I have reported were also 
banded at a migration stopover along the St Lawrence River.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Snow Goose and Sora

2013-05-16 Thread John Confer
The location Jeff mentions for the Sora is the same as where I heard one 
about 2 weeks ago. Nice to know it may be staying around. The darn bird 
did not respond to playbacks on my Big Day. It certainly is not a bird 
that I am very fond of.

Cheers,

John

Re:[cayugabirds-l] snow goose neck collar

2013-03-28 Thread nutter.dave
On 9 March in the flock of Snow Geese estimated by Chris Wood et al at 123K at the north end of Cayuga Lake, viewed from Lower Lake Rd, Bridgeport, Town of Seneca FallsI noted several yellow neck collars with 4-digit letter/number combinations. I reported the info and learned that all were female Greater Snow Geese banded as adults, several from Bylot Island in August 2008  2010, and one from the south shore of the St. Lawrence River about 50 miles downstream from Quebec City in May 2007. It's fascinating to learn about where and when these birds have met people before. I wonder if there have been other reports of the same individuals, and if we could access that information. I saw that Chris Wood noted some different collar numbers in his eBird report that day, and I wonder where those individuals were from.--Dave Nutter Date: Wed, 27 Mar 2013 20:33:43 -0700 (PDT) From: David Prill ll...@yahoo.com To: "geneseebird...@geneseo.edu" geneseebird...@geneseo.edu Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] snow goose neck collar Message-ID: 1364441623.94490.yahoomail...@web140304.mail.bf1.yahoo.com Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"  On Tuesday, 3/26/13, there was a flock of about six hundred snow geese at the D.E.C. pond on Route 20 in the town of Avon, NY. Four of them had neck collars which I reported to the USGS Banding. I received a report on one bird today. It is a greater snow goose hatched in 2011 or earlier and banded on 8/7/12 on the south plain of Bylot Island. The coordinates are Latitude: 73.13 and Longitude:-79.83. Bylot Island is off the north end of Baffin Island. There was just one snow goose at the pond? on Wednesday,at 3:30 p.m. on 3/27/13. Regards, David Prill
