[nysbirds-l] No thick billed murre

2019-01-02 Thread Christopher Gangemi
Between 2:30 and 3:00 I did NOT observe the Thick Billed Murre at the Shinnecock Inlet. I was on the east side and could not observe the western side of the western jetty. Many Eider were moving out of the inlet when I arrived. There was a large raft of birds just offshore. Perhaps it moved

The Thick-Billed Murre continues at the Shinnecock Inlet. At 8:45 it was in the mouth of the inlet, between the two jetties. Also of note was a female Harlequin duck on the east side of the east jetty. Sent from my iPod -- NYSbirds-L List Info:

Refound Common Murre at 1:45. It was in the mouth of the jetty. I will try to post a picture to eBird later. The female Harlequin was on the western side of the west jetty. As I was departing, at 2pm, a single Razorbill flew into the jetty and landed in the bay to join another, not far from

[nysbirds-l] American White Pelican

While scanning Hayground Cove north from the dead end at Cove Ave in Watermill this morning, I found an American White Pelican in with a large bevy of Mute Swans. I’ve posted a photo to eBird. Sent from my iPod -- NYSbirds-L List Info: http://www.NortheastBirding.com/NYSbirdsWELCOME.htm

Yes, so what happened is a hunter got in his boat, ostensibly just to break up the thin skin of ice that was forming in the cove and spooked the Pelican. Sent from my iPod > On Jan 12, 2019, at 10:30 AM, Anthony Collerton wrote: > > Suffolk Co. > In flight over Rose Hill Road, heading

Pacific Loon was present at 12:40. However, just as we arrived, someone began shooting skeet not 50 feet from where the Loon was diving in the mouth of the inlet. The simultaneous presence of a Pacific Loon and a skeet shooter in Oyster Bay boggled my mind a bit. Sent from my iPod > On Feb

Looks like I arrived to find the Wilson’s Plover just after Shai and Patricia left. At first it was just ouside the enclosure and eventually I watched it walk west and into the dune grass. When I saw it, around 11:20, it was about 2/3 of the way back to the western edge of the parking lot

The Sandhill Crane originally reported to eBird by Bruce Horwith and found earlier in the day by Paul D. was still present in front of the Napeague fish factory at 3:45. There is currently lots of westbound traffic and the bird was quite close to Cranberry Hole road. I also watched 5 guys with

At around 12:30 there was an adult male Summer Tanager along the Big Woods trail in Southampton. This trail is also known as the Marguerite Crabbe Greeff Wildlife Sanctuary. In case anyone chooses to take a look, I marked two “Xs” on the trail with sticks where the bird was, about 100 yards

This time in the Long Pond Greenbelt in Sag Harbor. I saw the bird on the west side of the trail exactly where the Old RR Spur connects to the Round Pond trail. Compared to yesterday’s bird, this one was much more mottled yellow. Its head was the only fully red part of its body, its wings
