Re: [cayugabirds-l] Woodcock and waterthrush...interesting yard birds!

2019-07-29 Thread bob mcguire
Thanks Marie!

Funny about the woodcock. Last night, as I lay in bed, I heard the 
wing-feathers whistling of a woodcock right outside the window. No “peanuts”, 
no sky display with chirps. Just a woodcock on the move. We had as many as 5 
woodcocks in our fields this spring, and I often hear them displaying here in 
early fall.

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Woodcock/Owl Crawl Saturday Evening

2019-04-14 Thread Suan Hsi Yong
Our group went to Dodge Road, where the woodcocks started later than when I
scouted, but with enough light to be easily seen. After a few skydances,
those with muck boots and binoculars took a few steps into the muddy field
where I was able to get my spotlight on the bird on the ground.

The owling half of our trip bore no fruits, though some thought they saw a
shape flying away from the top of the Dodge Road spruce trees. At Ellis
Hollow Preserve, the silence was decorated by creepy rustlings from the
surrounding leaves which turned out to be night crawlers. Our final attempt
for owls was at Monkey Run South.

early as the last week in January and, commonly, by the last week of

Re: [cayugabirds-l] woodcock viewing?

2015-04-10 Thread Geo Kloppel
The Lindsay-Parsons Preserve has long been a good place for viewing Woodcock 
displays. Just park in the lot, walk down the trail into the ravine, cross the 
little bridge and continue up and out into the big fields. Head for the knoll 
with the Leopold bench: you can see a huge expanse of sky from there, and 
you'll be right in the middle of things.

I haven't actually checked them out there yet this spring, but I'm confident 
that West Danby's Woodcock are putting on a good show. Tonight they're even up 
here on the hillside, in my field on Tupper Road!

Re: [cayugabirds-l] Woodcock

I read your report with interest. I believe that Wolf Island is the  
site of some 85 major wind turbines, now in operation. I am wondering  
how their presence affects the woodcocks' sky dance. And I also  
wonder how the winter Short-eared Owl population is faring.

 Last week while vacationing on Wolfe Island in the Thousand  
 Islands(Wolfe is a large island but very quiet and mainly rural/ 
 agricultural) I was driving after sunset on one of the dirt/gravel  
 roads that compose most of the island when I saw a woodcock sitting  
 toward the side of the road. It did not move for a couple of minutes  
 and I was able to get a photograph of it in the headlights before it  
 flew off into the night sky. Wolfe Island offers perfect woodcock  
 habitat, with many unused fields and scrub. I continued driving and  
 about a quarter mile away from where I saw the woodcock, suddenly in  
 the headlights on the dirt/gravel road ahead several small birds  
 flushed up and flew away from the road. This happened at least three  
 times as I drove slowly down the road, but I could never get a good  
 sighting of these birds, other than they were small (robin-sized or  
 smaller) and flew up suddenly ahead. There were probaly a dozen  
 altogether. There were no other vehicles on this road. I was  
 wondering if anyone could tell me what birds these might be. I'm not  
 sure if they were young woodcocks (as I know they are active at dawn  
 and dusk), or something else. My husband surmised that they were  
 swallows (of which we saw hundreds on the telephone wires on the  
 island, gathering for migration), but I didn't think they would be  
 on the roadway at night. Any help regarding identification of these  
 birds would be appreciated.

RE: [cayugabirds-l] Woodcock family found

2010-06-12 Thread Susan Fast
On the hayfields I help manage, we have both young turkeys and ruffed grouse
in the tall grass.  It's good cover and also provides a lot more bugs than
the stubble after cutting.  We put off cutting until the end of June, but I
personally would prefer the middle of July.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Woodcock family found

On Wednesday night 7pm while walking my field I scared up a family of
woodcocks.
I decided to leave them be for a while but will be looking for them again on
Sunday evening.
There was definitely a larger one and several smaller ones. 
The smaller ones didn't fly far from the initial site I scared them from, I
assume their nest site. 

 My hay isn't quite ready to cut yet.

For next year...What is a good date to cut hay if I know I have woodcocks.
Is June 15th still OK?

Jacie
