RE: Re:[nysbirds-l] Oystercatchers at Plumb Beach

2021-05-27 Thread Joe Jannsen
Yes, oystercatchers are protected by the MBTA.  MBTA does not include 
harassment, so for it to apply, you would need a direct take of an adult or 
eggs at this stage, or of chicks if it gets to that point.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Oystercatcher nest at Plumb Beach

Hi everyone,

I hesitated before I wrote this email because I was not sure if this poor 
creature can be helped. Last year, I wrote similar email but it didn't help. I 
am hoping this time, things will be different.

Last week, I found an Oystercatcher nest on Plumb beach with two eggs and the 
parent kept getting flushed by the many people and dogs that roam this beach. 
There was two eggs in the nest. I only mentioned this issue to few birders who 
were there at the time, but I didn't have high hope that this nest will survive 
this God-forsaken place.

Two days ago, I went there again and to my pleasant surprise, I found the nest 
still intact and there were three eggs instead of two. But again, the people 
and dogs kept flushing this poor Oystercatcher away from the nest every few 
minutes.

And while walking there, I noticed a man approaching the same area, not knowing 
there was a nest. I had to run to him and alert him to the presence of the 
nest, so he wouldn't step on the eggs accidently.

Last year, the park (or beach) authority promised to do something to protect 
the nest but they were late and the nest was destroyed in the following couple 
of days. I am sorry I don't remember the person who communicated with them then.

Can they do something to help this nest now?

Here is video I shot of the bird getting back to the nest and sitting on the 
eggs.

Hi everyone,

I know we are not supposed to reveal nesting locations but I think everyone who 
is going to visit Plumb beach should be aware of this one. I have never seen a 
nest in this place which is not protected and have many people and dogs roaming 
the beach.

Today, I found an Oystercatcher nest in a very open area where birders walk 
sometimes. I know because I walked this area many time before, particularly, in 
search of Sparrows. And it is very easy for any one to step over the eggs 
accidently.

The nest is located at the far east end, near the large wooden board. I posted 
few photos on my eBird list to make it easy to find the nest.
You can see them here: 
https://ebird.org/checklist/S69331372

Unfortunately, nothing can be done about off-leash dogs which is a common 
problem in this place. Although, for some reason, I have not run into any dogs 
during my last two visits. I don't know if the social distancing secondary to 
the Coronavirus has any thing to do with.

I have a reason to believe that social distancing and stay-at-home policy have 
allowed for the Oystercatchers to build a nest on this beach.

So, please, If you are planning to go to Plumb beach, watch your steps.

RE: RE:[nysbirds-l] New Hawk Flyway Discovery

Subject: RE:[nysbirds-l] New Hawk Flyway Discovery

I continue to monitor this. There haven't been days anywhere near what the 
first day was like. But then I don't think there have been especially optimal 
flight conditions, and that seems to be reflected at other sites along the 
northeast seaboard. But there are a few hawks every day. And amazingly to me, 
that includes Turkey Vultures regularly passing through northeastern Queens. I 
did not see that coming. Now I wish I had started before March 31. The only 
other species to have been observed on every day of coverage is Osprey. Other 
surprises have been 6 Bald Eagles this week, and today a Broad-winged Hawk. 
That's not one that I have pegged for much of a presence on Long Island. It's 
still a few days early for appreciable numbers of Broad-wings. But now that 
I've gotten one, why not hold out hope that there could be a bunch to come 
through here?

The previously mentioned copulating Killdeer are now the nesting Killdeer. They 
picked out a spot about 50-60 feet from the spot I picked to watch from. I keep 
my distance from them and they seem to be fine with that distance. On an 
occasion when both were away, I checked the nest and saw 4 eggs. I'm kind of 
surprised at such an early date. Other shorebirds appearing have been Greater 
Yellowlegs and Wilson's Snipe - the snipe not only as flyovers, but landing in 
the wet meadow right behind the watch site.

Elsewhere in the neighborhood, it's April 11 and the Alley Pond Restoration 
Pond still has the Redhead pair, the Ring-necked Duck, and the Red-necked 
Grebe. They might be old news, but I'm still keeping tabs on the grebe in hopes 
of getting it in breeding plumage. While it hasn't changed much, 7 remaining 
Horned Grebes on Little Neck Bay have gotten colorful. The bay still has a 
Red-throated Loon or two. Oddly, one individual came into Alley Creek and 
hauled out on a mud flat at low tide.

Subject: New Hawk Flyway Discovery

I think that subject line is more interesting than the usual. Well, the flyway 
is not really new. I'm sure birds have been there before. And I can't say the 
discovery is out of the blue. About 20 years ago, one day (an April 19, as I 
recall), I detected a small hawk flight (about 70 birds of various species) 
along Little Neck Bay in northeastern Queens. I decided that this year I would 
finally put some time into seeing if there's something viable here. The spot I 
chose is a mile or so south of where I observed that time - by Alley Pond 
Environmental Center, but on the north side of Northern Blvd. Wide open skies 
for viewing here.  And for today, at least, the results were intriguing and not 
bad.

I started at 11:00. Now I wish I had started earlier. But going in, it seemed a 
preposterous idea to plan a day around spring hawk watching in Queens. And with 
a forecast for winds to lighten in mid-day, it didn't profile as an ideal hawk 
migration day. Well anyway, 15 minutes into it, a group of 23 Turkey Vultures 
came streaming by high. This already was more TV's than I'd ever seen in one 
day on Long Island. A few minutes later, it was a group of 31. This went on for 
about another hour, with a final tally of 186 Turkey Vultures (don't laugh 
Braddock Bay and Derby Hill - that's big stuff here). The surprising thing is 
that most were heading east, except for one group of 13 that were seen going 
north on the west side of Little Neck Bay). Looking at a map leads one to think 
that a north or northeast heading would allow for a short water crossing before 
Long Island Sound widens, and could actually provide somewhat of a 
concentration point toward the mainland. This may prove true yet, particularly 
for other species. The single Harrier today and a couple of Ospreys went that 
way. I'm not sure where the two Kestrels went or if the Cooper's Hawk was not a 
local. An adult Bald Eagle flew the wrong way over Little Neck Bay, so probably 
a local (still sounds strange to say that in Queens).

The spot I chose is in a meadow and by Alley Creek and Little Neck Bay. So this 
provided some other birds to be enjoyed while waiting for hawks. Notable for 
here or late March were copulating Killdeer, Great Egret, Barn Swallow, Palm 
Warbler, Eastern Meadowlark, and a number of Boat-tailed Grackles. The most 
interesting bird was one that flew low past me, giving a call I didn't 
recognize. When I got on it flying away, I saw large wing patches and red 
emanating from the head. I

Directions to ApartmentComplex. It is located between Woodside Av (CR99) and 
Horseblock Rd (CR16). Easiest way to get there from Sunrise Hwy is Exit 57N. 
North on CR16 past Brookhaven Landfill.  The entrance to the Atlantic Point 
Apartments is the 1st traffic light after Landfill, Alexan Blv. If coming from 
Expressway (I495) Exit 65 and proceed southbound on CR16 for approximately 2 
miles. Right turn on Alexan Blv into complex.

Can also get to Complex off of Woodside Ave (CR99). 2nd traffic light west of 
CR16  then Right turn on Sawgrass Dr then right turn on Alexan Blv.

Complex has a gate but is open during the days, at least on weekdays. Not as 
large as you think can be walked. Parking allowed on Sawgrass Dr if gate is 
down. Parking not allowed on Alexan Blv but plenty of parking surrounding the 
buildings.

Both Birds on Alexan Blv. 1st bird on south side of Alexan Blv (heading towards 
CR16) at pond just west of Foxglove Circle. Pond is located next to a green 
dumpster. That bird has been there 2 days.

2nd bird on north side of Alexan Blv across from Wisteria Circle. The Gulls 
seem to prefer the three pond in center of complex and also sit on Apartment 
roofs.

People are friendly but might get frightened by Scopes and Binoculars so just 
be polite and let them know what you are doing. It might actually help the 
birds because the Gulls do appear to be quite a nuisance.

RE:[nysbirds-l] Upland Sandpiper Friday Update?

2016-04-15 Thread Joe Jannsen
Jane,

My suggestion is to travel eastbound on Ocean Parkway in the right hand lane.  
Once you pass Oak Beach (old OBI location) slow down (I put my flashers on) and 
scan the grassy median in the center of the road.  The bird is pretty 
conspicuous if there.  Once you spot it, pull over to the right onto the grassy 
shoulder and observe from your vehicle.  As others have mentioned, the bird is 
precariously close to fast-moving vehicles, so I wouldn’t approach any closer 
and I definitely would not attempt to observe from the median.  Across the road 
provides close enough views that are safe for you and the bird.

Good luck!

Joe

Hoping to find the upland sandpiper this morning so would love to see any

Oak Beach???). Many thanks in advance, Jane

RE: [nysbirds-l] Upland Sandpiper Continues

2016-04-14 Thread Joe Jannsen
I received the following message last night at 9:16 PM:

"Sorry, your message was not sent out to 'nysbirds-l' because the message is 
identical to a message you sent to 'nysbirds-l' recently.  If you believe you 
are receiving this message in error, resend your message with slightly 
different content."

An odd message, considering I rarely post to the listserve, and I most 
definitely did not post an identical or another other message related to the 
Upland Sandpiper.  So, as suggested, I am reposting my report from yesterday 
evening, in case folks did not receive it.  Apologies if you are seeing this 
information too late for it to be useful to you, but I did attempt to post my 
observation in real time.

RE: [nysbirds-l] Phalarope continues at Jones beach

2015-07-17 Thread Joe Jannsen
0700:  Red Phalarope continues in the westernmost pond between the Jones Beach 
Nature Center and West End II.

Regarding driving directions, it depends where you are coming from.  You will 
need to take one of the major north-south roads; Meadowbrook Parkway, Wantagh 
Parkway, or Robert Moses Causeway.  Once you are on the barrier island/Ocean 
Parkway, follow the signs for West End beaches and/or the Jones Beach Nature 
Center.  Given the most recent location of the bird, I would suggest parking in 
the southeast corner of the West End II parking lot and proceeded east along 
the beaten path.  If you come to the park after 8:00 AM during the week or 
after 6:00 AM on weekends, expect to pay the parking fee.

Good luck!

RE: [nysbirds-l] DEC's Mute Swan management plan

2014-01-17 Thread Joe Jannsen
It is ambitious, but feasible as demonstrated by Maryland:

Maryland has been most aggressive to date, adopting a plan (with strong public 
support) that calls for direct culling of swans to the lowest possible number. 
By 2010, they had reduced their population to approximately 200 birds from 
nearly 4,000 birds in 1999 (Maryland DNR 2011).

Subject: Re: [nysbirds-l] DEC's Mute Swan management plan

This seems like a very ambitious (read: challenging) endeavor given the large 
numbers of Mute Swans that we now have in NYS, especially in coastal areas were 
they occur just about everywhere (fresh and brackish habitats). This is 
compounded by the fact that neighboring states and provinces also have large 
numbers of birds, which are likely to quickly repopulate areas that are 
cleared. Honestly I think they are planning to close the barn door after the 
swan has left but as Paul Sweet notes there are legitimate reasons for concern 
on behalf of native flora and fauna.
Does anyone know if other state/provinces are planning similar projects? A 
concerted effort across the northeast would seem a minimal requirement for 
long-term success.

I can't answer your questions regarding the merits of the project, but as a 
state agency, the DEC has regulatory jurisdiction over all projects requiring a 
permit regardless of who's property the activity is occurring on; state, 
municipal, or private.

You have not explained why it is preferable to keep this old railroad bed, 
disused for nearly sixty years, in its present state instead of making it 
available and hospitable to many who do not otherwise get out into the woods. 
The trail is largely paved already from the City line well into Putnam County.

Trail.  The comment period ends May 17th.  We're asking people to send letters 
AND emails to the below addresses.  Express why you do not support paving and 
why you believe a permit should not be granted.  The permit is for the 
following:

Project Description:
The applicant proposes to convert an existing abandon rail corridor into a 
multi-use greenway. The proposed work includes removal of old rail ties, paving 
of the existing rail ballast with a 10 foot wide asphalt path, reconstruction 
of drainage infrastructure, removal of invasive species, addition of landscape 
plantings, restoration of historic elements and selective removal of the chain 
link fence. The project site from the City line to Van Cortlandt Park South in 
Van Cortlandt Park Along the Putnam Rail Corridor.

These are the addresses.  Again we're recommending both letters and emails.

Elizabeth,

I can't answer your questions regarding the merits of the project, but as a 
state agency, the DEC has regulatory jurisdiction over all projects requiring a 
permit regardless of who's property the activity is occurring on; state, 
municipal, or private.

Is the Putnam Trail State-owned or City-owned? The part in question seems to be 
entirely within Van Cortlandt Park. I'm curious to know why DEC even has 
jurisdiction within a City park.

You have not explained why it is preferable to keep this old railroad bed, 
disused for nearly sixty years, in its present state instead of making it 
available and hospitable to many who do not otherwise get out into the woods. 
The trail is largely paved already from the City line well into Putnam County.

I found the Tufted Duck on the pond next to St. John's Church in the extreme ne 
corner of Nassau County about 11:30 this morning. This is adjacent to the fish 
hatchery for those unfamiliar with the area on 25A. It was with a group of Ring 
necked ducks very close to the fence behind the church. It drifted off to the 
right (west) and probably disappeared behind a large fallen tree near the 
shore. I'm not sure because we were distracted by a Eurasian-type Widgeon, 
either a male coming out of eclipse or a hybrid - the sides were similar to the 
nearby American Widgeon. The tuft was wet and not sticking out at all - in fact 
you could see the wet tuft feathers contrasting with the rest of the dark head 
feathers. It could be missed with its head tucked in except for the white sides 
and black back.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Least Tern Colony - Flanders Bay

 

This evening I went for a kayak trip and found a Least Tern colony in
Flanders Bay on a spit of land that is inaccessible via foot.  There
looked to be about 25 pairs of birds occupying the bit of land.  I had
noticed a plover yesterday nearby so it is possible that there are
plovers breeding on-site, but I didn't get out on foot to check.  I
assume that the Nature Conservancy or the State knows about the site
since there was some fencing - but clearly hasn't been attended to this
year so if anyone knows more about this feel free to contact me, I
certainly wouldn't mind doing some counting of the birds given my
proximity to the site and past experience as a plover/tern monitor.  

 

There were several short-billed dowitchers, semi-palmated sanderlings
and willets.  Some of these birds, interestingly enough, were feeding on
horseshoe crab eggs that had just been laid as I watched the pair of
crabs separate and go back into the water as the birds fed where they
had been.  Photos can be seen here:  
http://birdsoflongisland.blogspot.com/2011/06/least-tern-colony.html

 

For those of you interested in herpetology I photographed a
Diamond-backed Terrapin heading back into the water, presumably after
laying eggs.  For photos of that, check out my other blog here:

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Bank swallow colony - Farmingville

 

The issue of the Swallows was brought up to the property owner/developer
this morning and he said that he wil refrain from construction
activities in those areas until nesting has been completed.  I presume
that under the Migratory Bird Act these nests would be covered - anyone
with more information (DEC folks?) please feel free to share on here or
through e-mail.  There is also potential for keeping part of the natural
slope (instead of grading it) for future use as a nesting site but that
is to be determined.

[nysbirds-l] Dune Road bittern

2011-01-05 Thread Joe Jannsen
Today at 3:00 PM, I observed an American bittern on the marsh (bay) side of 
Dune Road, between Neptune's and Triton Lane.  The bird was very successfully 
hunting in a pool directly across from the Town of Southampton Sand Bar Beach, 
so maybe it will remain in the area.
