Re: [nysbirds-l] Long Island's rare geese

2022-01-14 Thread Adelia Honeywood
Long Island's waterfowl hunting season ends on January 30th except for Snow 
Geese which is until March 6th. After January 30th should we still exercise 
these precautions with eBird? Should we wait until March 6th if people hunting 
Snow Geese might go for other geese species?
(I look up the season dates every year and avoid going to Jones Beach until the 
duck season is over ...)

Ronnie, Thank you for pointing this out, absolutely, in fact I neglected to

asking anyone who agrees and is willing, to cross-post to the various other 
social media outlets (none of which I belong to).
Elliot, As far as the eBird control is concerned, this is out of my purview, 
but I would ask the eBird folks reading this whether this is something they 
consider important enough to consider. 

Darlene, YES, I believe keeping the lists hidden from public will work.
All, I encourage everyone to call DEC if they see anything illegal going on. 
Long Island is DEC Region 1. The general number is 631-444-0200. They can at 
least direct you to the enforcement number, which I seem to have misplaced 
after calling them a previous year when we saw hunters gunning down dozens of 
Canada Geese coming in to their decoys from their perch in a field. Turned out 
it was legal at that time. The hunters just piled them all up and left them 
there, not sure what happened to the carcasses later.

With the hunting season now upon us, and the Waterfowl Count starting on 
Saturday, we would like to make a serious plea that birders and photographers 
not post reports of rare geese from Riverhead and the East End of Long Island 
on eBird, Facebook, this listserv, or any other social media platform until the 
end of the season.

It has become very clear here on LI that hunters have caught on to eBird, the 
listservs, and social media, and are targeting the rare geese (and ducks also) 
using information obtained from birders. One of the only Pink-footed Geese in 
the Riverhead area last winter was shot this way, and we personally know of 
other cases involving Ross's and Barnacle Geese (and King Eiders, etc.). A 
Greylag Goose, very likely of wild origins and if so, extremely rare, was also 
shot in this area a few years ago. 
The problem is most acute in the Riverhead area and on the South Fork, from 
November to the end of hunting season (9 Feb for Canada Goose, 6 Mar for Snow 
Goose). We understand that the birding community does not want war with the 
hunters, but the situation here is very sensitive--everybody knows the very 
limited number of specific fields used by the geese, and it seems a shame that 
the rarer species are being exposed to this level of danger. 

We would suggest Cackling, Ross's, Barnacle, Pink-footed, and Greater 
White-fronted Geese, and of course any mega rare species, seen in these areas 
not be reported until hunting season ends or at least until the geese seem to 
have moved on. 

Cackling and Greater White-fronted Goose may be taken legally as part of the 
Canada Goose bag limits. Snow and Ross's Geese may be taken as part of the Snow 
Goose bag limits. The others are not listed as game species on the DEC website 
so apparently were taken illegally. 

By making this one small sacrifice, we might just be able to save a few birds

Re: [nysbirds-l] EBird eliminated "Summarize my Observations" - problem for Christmas Bird Count

2020-10-12 Thread Adelia Honeywood
 In a web browser on any checklist under checklist tools you can select to 
download the list as a .csv file which can be opened in any spreadsheet program 
such as Excel or Google sheets (which is free with a Google account). Depending 
on how many lists, it can take a couple of minutes to cut and paste them all 
together into a single spreadsheet. You can then sort the species column, 
combine the duplicate species totals and delete the duplicates. In Excel if you 
highlight the species column, select Conditional Formatting and Duplicate 
Values it will highlight where all the duplicates are.It sounds complicated, 
but it is actually pretty quick -

 Hi all,
Another option, though somewhat cumbersome, is to look at your day list for the 
date of the CBC.  To do this, click on the "Sightings Lists" link underneath 
the "Explore My..." list on the left side of the main My eBird page.  Here's a 
link to the lists page: 
https://ebird.org/MyEBird?cmd=lifeList=life=world
On the top bar, click on the calendar icon and select the date you desire.  
While the number of individuals seen of each species is not visible here, you 
can view it by clicking on the "View All" button to the right of each species 
within this list and noting the total at the top of the page.
Not as convenient as the Summarize My Observations option, but still workable.

Hey Nancy,
The summarize feature is not gone permanently - eBird is transitioning all of 
its ancient pages to a new format and it is supposed to return within the year, 
but it could indeed pose a challenge for the CBCs if it isn’t fast-tracked. 
I am not sure what the most elegant solution for CBC listing is today. In eBird 
mobile (definitely for iOS, Android I can’t say for sure) one can choose “Trip 
Summaries” under “Checklists” and see all species counts for any given 
particular date range, including just one day. Minimizing the number of list 
keepers in a sector party would help here. The “Trip” report can be emailed 
out. 
Another option is to create a sector eBird account. Anyone keeping lists within 
the party can share their lists with that account. You can see a species list 
in the account’s “My eBird” but not species totals. For that you’d need to 
export its observations into Excel. Everything is likely getting summed in 
Excel by the coordinators anyway. 
I hope any other useful strategies will be shared here before CBC season hits. 
The species highs/first/last all can still be accessed on the pages for a 
location (country, state, county, or hotspot level). Check the buttons just 
above the species list, under “Sightings”.

I contacted eBird via their website on August 23, 2020 re the following 
complaint.  There has been no response.

EBird used to have the function “Summarize My Observations”, which has now been 
eliminated.  It was useful to produce a combined trip list of multiple 
locations.  It was especially useful for the Christmas Bird Count.

My North Nassau CBC sector includes 19 locations (each a separate spot to drive 
to).  In years past, I could produce a combined checklist in about 2 minutes 
using “Summarize My Observations”.  Now what?  Print 19 checklists and combine 
the data by hand?  This may take two hours instead of two minutes.

I would like to have seen “Summarize My Observations” be improved to allow more 
flexible dates and selection of locations.  Instead, the whole feature is gone 
- did eBird ask anyone before deleteing it?  I feel that birders spend a lot of 
effort inputting their data - shouldn’t eBird give us a better interface to 
inquire on it?

Does the loss of this feature bother anyone else or just me?

By the way, these other features were also deleted:  species All-Time 
First/Last Records, Arrivals and Departures, and High Counts.

Re: [nysbirds-l] Creating separate checklists on eBird for the NY and NJ portions of Wallkill River NWR (Oil City Road) -- A Plea

2020-06-01 Thread Adelia Honeywood
 Hi,I have done Walkill NWR twice and the first time I split up the checklists. 
I did not split it up the second time because it appears that the entire 
Liberty Loop trail is in one atlas block. I didn't understand why that block 
would include NJ (most of the block does), but on my second trip I thought that 
it would be ok to do one list because I wasn't crossing block boundaries. So 
that fact may be confusing people.
Thank you for the reminder. I will be sure to split them in the future.

 Since the NYS BBA III has begun this year it becomes all the more important to 
be accurate in our reporting of checklists from the Wallkill River NWR in 
Orange County New York. This block is close to the border with NJ, so that most 
of the refuge is in NJ while Oil City Road and the “platform” are in New York.

One of the dedicated Atlas volunteers from our club described to me someone she 
met 2 days ago who had just completed the entire Liberty Loop which starts in 
NY, goes into NJ, and ends in NY, and who had entered all the species seen on 
one eBird checklist -- as is quite common, and moreover told her that he had 
entered it on the NYS BBA III; and this club member despairingly texted me “How 
can we prevent non-NY birds being reported in NY on BBA reports?” My response 
was that at present it was impossible, and it was up to us to educate 
individual birders to the problem. This post is written is in the spirit of 
(though I’m not religious) “It is better to light a candle than to curse the 
darkness.“

One of the important aspects Julie Hart emphasized in Atlasing in 2020 on one 
of her workshops is knowing that there are block borders and keeping each 
checklist to within a specific block.

For those unfamiliar with the Liberty Loop Trail. It is a 3 mile 
rectangular-shaped trail.
If you walk the Liberty Loop counterclockwise from the platform, when you come 
to the long side of the rectangle that goes North-South on the western side of 
the loop and you start getting to trees on either side of the path, you are 
already in NJ.
If you walk the Liberty Loop clockwise from the platform, when you come to the 
long side of the rectangle that goes North-South on the eastern side of the 
loop, when you get to the second large tree on the right, you are close to NJ.
If you use the eBird app in the field, block borders are clearly marked. You 
have to click on the “mileage” you have traveled shown on top and the border 
will show up in white when you zoom out, with your current location shown as a 
blue-and-white bull’s-eye. As you walk closer to the border, repeatedly look at 
your location and when you come to the actual border of Unionville-SE, you 
should end this checklist and begin a new checklist for NJ -- which you should 
end when you leave NJ and come back to NY. The remaining portion in New York 
could be a new checklist, and with the eBird app for both Android and iPhone, 
there is no effort at all starting a new checklist.

Here is a link to Google maps, where under Satellite View you can easily see 
the trees I’ve mentioned.
https://tinyurl.com/ydxogqpo 

I was told by Curt McDermott (the eBird reviewer for Orange County, New York) 
that the Refuge plans to place a sign at the NY-NJ border, and I hope that the 
new information overcomes force of habit and inertia.

Good Friday,14th April, 2017 -
Manhattan, Chelsea neighborhood, N.Y. City

A well-plumaged Cattle Egret continues its visit at a small-ish greenspace, on 
the north side of 28th Street, between Eighth & Ninth Avenues in Manhattan. In 
the early morning at least, the Egret was a bit closer to Eigth Ave. - it was 
feeding reasonably, as it has been for the days of observations.  

I also visited some smaller parks in the lower-mid Manhattan area, & most 
seemed to hold very scant migrant or late-lingering wintered-over birds.  The 
Hudson river along lower Manhattan also appeared relatively quiet and the 
greenspaces alongside somewhat the same, with the exception of lingering 
Atlantic Brant in some areas, which are not unexpected into or even thru April. 
 


Thanks to Ardith Bondi for her note on the Central Park reservoir (Manhattan) 
Red-necked Grebe which she photographed Thursday; this bird was also reported 
by a few others, in various media.  Should that grebe linger on into next week, 
it will certainly seem very likely that it is the same which was rehabilitated 
in Manhattan & subsequently released to the CP reservoir. It is mobile within 
the reservoir & it seems to be feeding well.

Peaceful birding,

Tom Fiore
