Howard Fischer and I just had a Franklin's Gull fly over Miller Field on
Staten Island. It was last seen flying south along the shore with two
Laughing Gulls-

The Baird's Sandpiper had also returned to the puddle in front of the

[nysbirds-l] Franklin's Gull update - not seen - Suffolk County

2017-06-23 Thread David Klauber
Just an update about Taylor's excellent find of an adult Franklin's Gull at 
Crab Meadow beach, Northport, Suffolk County.

Taylor found it around 8 AM this morning. Others arrived around 11 and did not 
see it, and several of us checked from about 4-7 and it was not seen. Taylor 
has been checking since the original sighting a few days ago, and this morning 
was the only subsequent sighting.

But hopefully it's in the area

[nysbirds-l] FRANKLIN'S GULL - Northport, Suffolk Co.

2017-06-18 Thread Taylor Sturm
Hello!!
At 8:00 pm (high tide) an adult FRANKLIN'S GULL was loafing with around 20
Laughing Gulls on the close sandbar at Crab Meadow Beach in Northport,
Suffolk County.
After just a few minutes, the birds were flushed by a group of small kids
and they all flew strongly west.  I stayed until it was getting too dark to
see but they didn't come back.
I'm not aware of how early they start charging at this beach, but it costs
$30.00 to get in when they are (free with a Town of Huntington Beach Pass).
Good birding,
Taylor Sturm

[nysbirds-l] Franklin's Gull, shorebirds - Niagara and Orleans Counties

2017-05-25 Thread Willie D'Anna
After the drenching rain this morning, Joel Strong and I got out to look
over the fields to see what shorebirds, if any, had dropped in. 

 

On Youngstown-Wilson Road, just west of Fitch, there were:

75 Dunlin

11 Least Sandpipers

3 White-rumped Sandpipers

100 Semipalmated Sandpipers

18 Short-billed Dowitchers

2 Spotted Sandpipers

 

On the Lower Lake Road - Burgess Road join, there were:

2 American Wigeon

1 Semipalmated Plover

56 Dunlin

1 Least Sandpiper

1 White-rumped Sandpiper

46 Semipalmated Sandpipers

9 Short-billed Dowitchers

2 dowitcher species (possibly Long-billed)

The highlight here was a FRANKLIN'S GULL with a few hundred Ring-billed and
Herring Gulls. Unfortunately, it did not stay long, as an immature Bald
Eagle came over and all the gulls flew off. It was probably a second-cycle
bird, though possibly an adult that had not yet molted in its hood. Poor
photos were obtained: http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S37144462

 

On the Orleans County side of Niagara-Orleans Countyline Road, there were:

4 Black-bellied Plovers

75 Dunlin

55 Semipalmated Sandpipers

 

On Lower Lake Road, just east of Johnson Creek Road, there were:

10 Black-bellied Plovers

19 Dunlin

2 dowitcher species (seen very briefly)

 

Good birding!

[nysbirds-l] Franklin's Gull Broome County Dorchester Park/Whitney Point Dam Area May 6th, 2017

2017-05-06 Thread David Nicosia
This morning Jim Hoteling found a strange gull with a hood and red bill at
Dorchester Park Whitney Point Dam area. Initial thoughts were a LAUGHING
GULL since we have had one before here. George Chiu got up there before me
and he was thinking FRANKLIN'S GULL instead. As I was about 5 minutes away
I get a text with the dreaded  "the bird flew". How many times does this
happen to you? Anyway, George and Jim tracked the bird as it flew over the
dam and dropped. The Whitney Point Elementary School with its ball fields
are on the other side. So I went there instead of Dorchester and when I saw
bunch of RING-BILLED GULLs on the ball field my excitement peaked, and it
was an easy find. I noticed the thick eye-rings first, smaller bill and
size and I agreed with George's assessment. Looked good for a FRANKLIN'S
GULL, a first county ebird record and possibly first county record!!!  I
texted an image to an all-out expert I know from the Cornell Lab of
Ornithology and he also agreed.

Images can be found here...
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S36586894

The bird was foraging and eating a bunch of earthworms. He was having a
feast since it was very wet and there were earthworms all over. Then the
bird started vocalizing which was really neat.  I have never heard a FRGU
before, certainly different than LAGU.  Then the bird took off alone and
flew back over the dam toward Dorchester Park. I went back there, refound
the bird, the bird didn't stay there long and it then took off and flew
around me for a few minutes I got some audio recordings which was really
neat. The bird flew north toward Upper Lisle County Park. I got it in my
scope and watched it until he was out of sight. The bird did not take off
that high as it stayed below the ridge line. So I went to Upper Lisle and
searched all places I know that gulls hang out and didn't find any gulls at
all. Hopefully, it will come back later today or tomorrow. The bird
certainly was finding a lot of food!!

[nysbirds-l] Franklin's Gull Staten Island

2016-10-04 Thread Anthony Ciancimino
This evening at around 6:00 there was a Franklin's Gull present At Wolfe's Pond 
Park, on Staten Island's south shore. The bird was roosting with many Laughing 
Gulls and a couple of Caspian Terns on a sandbar west of the pond (at rising 
tide). After a few minutes of the observation the bird followed a few Laughing 
Gulls and flew straight out into the bay, headed toward New Jersey, probably 
because the sandbar became submerged. 
A bad but diagnostic photo can be seen on the eBird checklist here:

[nysbirds-l] Franklin's Gull Tiana Beach

2015-11-14 Thread Jim Clinton
Started at Robert Moses for a chance at finding a Franklin's Gull but no luck.  
After birding the area I decided to make a run to Dune Road.  Using my van as 
wind break at Tiana Beach I located my bird, a lifer for me.  Smaller and 
mantle lighter than what I was expecting.  Adult bird with three other Laughing 
Gulls moving east to west.  Soon after the four birds moved on, I found another 
small group of Laughing Gulls.  Hopes were high for another Franklin's but none 
were to be found.  50+ laughing Gulls moved by during the next 20 minutes.  
Good movement of Gannets along the ocean.  After reviews of photos of 
Franklin's Gulls the bird I had was on the lighter side but not as light as 
some of the photos.

Had a total of 4 Merlins and 2 Peregrines Ocean Parkway and 6 Merlins and 3 
Peregrines Dune Rd.

Also had two Snow Buntings in the parking lot at Tiana Beach.

[nysbirds-l] Franklin's Gull Yes & Nos

2015-11-13 Thread Doug Gochfeld
There is a first-cycle Franklin's Gull (FRGU) in the boat ramp parking lot
at Floyd Bennett Field with ~50 gulls (30 Laughing) right now.

For some balance, I came up empty for FRGU on the Queens barrier, checking
the visible beach from Silver Gull Club, Riis Park parking lot and
beach, and the gull flocks near the wastewater plant and school close to
Beach 108th St.

Good birding

For anyone interested, here are some photos of the Franklin's Gull at Plum
Beach in Brooklyn. I would not give up on this Gull for those of you who
have not seen it as yet.  Keep those reports coming in even the negative

P.S. if you missed yesterday's overnight Pelagic, you missed a good one.
Photos will be up as soon as I have them ready.

RE: [nysbirds-l] Franklin's Gull

2015-05-29 Thread David Klauber
The Franklin's Gull flew in to the west side of the inlet at the eastern end of 
Plum Beach around 10:15, stayed for about 10 minutes , then flew east and 
landed on the beach before the area where there are many boats. I had taken 
Sean's advice and waited on the bridge along the paved walkway from about 7:45 
to 10 with no luck. This is a good view point but very noisy as it's next to 
the Belt parkway. 
A Binghampton birder (Ken?) saw the bird fly in and called me - thanks again. 
For me the most striking thing about the bird on ground was the smaller bill, 
the general black and white look towards the wing tips (rather than black with 
a couple of white spots), and from the rear, the less extensive black hood. It 
did not seem to be paired up as per previous observations, although it was with 
a small group(5-8) of Laughing Gulls. It flew off by itself to join another 
small group of laughing Gulls on the beach

After an hour wait at the east end of Plumb Beach, the Franklin's Gull just 
flew in, calling continuously, and seemed to head west along the beach towards 
the parking lot.

[nysbirds-l] Franklin's Gull @ Plum Beach 5-28

2015-05-28 Thread birdingdude
Sam Janazzo just reported that the Franklin's Gull continues at Plum Beach 
Brooklyn.

Currently being viewed at the East end of the  beach on the opposite shore. 
Note, this area is near the bridge for those not familiar with the location.

[nysbirds-l] Franklin's Gull at Plum Beach, Brooklyn Sunday May 24th

2015-05-24 Thread Deborah Allen
Bob DeCandido and I went to Plum Beach in Brooklyn after lunch today (May 24) 
to 
look for the recently reported Nelson's Sparrows, which we didn't find. Bob 
headed back to the car while attempted to comb through the Laughing Gulls in 
search of the Black-headed Gull that had recently been reported. I wasn't able 
to find the Black-headed Gull, but decided to try for a few flight shots of the 
gulls. When we got home, I looked through my photos and found a Franklin's 
Gull. Here's a link to the photo:

http://photo.net/photodb/photo?photo_id=18027240


The Franklin's Gull was hanging around with the Laughing Gulls on the beach, 
which kept flying up because of all the foot traffic. Most of the gulls were 
fairly close to the sand bar. 

Also a small flock of Sanderlings and some Least Terns.

Re: [nysbirds-l] Franklin's Gull Photos

2013-10-23 Thread Andrew Baksh
Congrats Ken on a very nice find.

I along with many others that included Bobby Rossetti, Eric Miller, Isaac
Grant, Harry Taylor, Ed Becher and I am sure others who I did not see at
the sites, split up and tried to cover the beach areas from fields 2 - 5.
Eric and I got as far east as about 1/2 a mile maybe more...past the
lighthouse on the beach side taking in some rain in the process but all the
while hoping the weather would force more birds inland.

Alas, although we found a few Laughing Gull flocks, with one numbering over
100, we did not find our target bird.  However, like Ken indicated, I would
not assume this bird is gone and encourage seekers to study Ken's photos
well and continue the quest as there were a lot of gulls offshore including
who knows what other goodies.

Cheers!

 The 1st winter *Franklin's Gull* seen this morning on the beach at Robert
 Moses State Park had not been relocated by early this afternoon, despite
 intensive searching. There are still large numbers of Laughing Gulls
 loafing on the beach between Fields 2 and 5, although the many fisherman
 walking the beach have forced some of the birds off the beach and into the
 water. I do not necessarily assume this bird has left, and there still may
 be some gull concentrations tomorrow, assuming the fish cooperate. Photos
 of the gull can be found on my flickr site.

[nysbirds-l] Franklin's Gull - Wilson

2012-08-17 Thread Willie D'Anna and Betsy Potter
Around 2:30 this afternoon I found a juvenile FRANKLIN’S GULL transitioning
into first winter plumage in the Village of Wilson (Niagara County).  The
bird was on the small pier that juts into Lake Ontario at the end of NY
Route 425.  There were a growing number of Herring Gulls here, up to about a
dozen when I left at 3:15.  The Franklin’s seemed easily intimidated by the
larger gulls – it was frequently changing positions on the pier.  If looking
for this bird, you should also check the much longer double-piers, which are
at the mouth of Twelve Mile Creek, about ½ mile west of the small pier.

 

Good birding!

[nysbirds-l] Franklin's Gull - Niagara River

2011-11-06 Thread Willie D'Anna and Betsy Potter
The FRANKLIN'S GULL was back in the same area as yesterday, viewed from
Artpark State Park in Lewiston, NY.  The bird works back and forth and was
easy to see for much of the time we were there.  We saw it between 2:00 and
2:40 but Peter Yoerg had it around 10:30 this morning.

 

The location and other suggested places to look are given in yesterday's
post, copied below:

 

Thanks to Andy Guthrie for posting this to GeneseeBirds earlier.  The first
winter FRANKLIN'S GULL was seen from Artpark State Park in Lewiston, NY from
2:15 to 2:45 this afternoon.  Take the upper entrance (off of Portage
Street) into the park, stay to your left, and drive to a small parking lot
by the river.  Walk the trail that goes south toward the Lewiston Queenston
Bridge.  The Franklin's Gull was first seen about 150 yards from the parking
lot, mainly working along the NY shore but could have been easily seen from
the Ontario side (walk upriver from the Queenston boat ramp).  If searching
for this gull, other places to check include the power plants (Adam Beck
overlook or NY Power Vista), the Whirlpool (Spanish Aero Car or Whirlpool
State Park), or even below the falls.  Watching the Bonaparte's Gulls fly
out of the river onto Lake Ontario at dusk may also work.  There were not a
lot of Bonies here, perhaps less than a hundred in the narrowest stretch of
the river below the Lewiston Queenston Bridge.  There were also very few at
the Whirlpool and none below the falls.  There were many at the power
plants, however.

 

Good birding!

We also made a quick check at Goat Island, which is between the American and
Canadian Falls on the NY side.  There were no Bonaparte's Gulls below the
falls and we did not have time to make a thorough check above the falls.
However, I was still able to count nine LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULLS roosting
in the shallows just off of Goat Island and above the Three Sisters Islands.
Of special interest were three juveniles all sitting together.  I don't
think I have ever seen three juvenile Lessers in one day before, much less
all together.  The others were five adults and one second winter.

 

Good birding!
