Re: [nysbirds-l] Oystercatcher nest in unprotected area

2020-05-21 Thread Gus Keri
Thank you, Doug, for the info.
As a matter of fact, I have seen them sitting on the beach on few occasions but 
I have never seen them going on to have any fledglings. (My personal 
experience). And just three weeks ago, I saw one sitting and when it saw me, it 
ran away. When I checked the spot, there was no eggs.
 
I put photos here: https://ebird.org/checklist/S68259881

I thought this bird will end up in Dead Horse Point, across the water, where I 
have witnessed two successful nests (with at least one offspring reaching 
adulthood) in the last three years. 
Eventually the bird built a nest on another spot of the same beach as we can 
see.

The fact that, they were not successful in the last 5 years suggests that 
off-leash dogs problems got much worse (and this also my personal experience). 
And the fact that they are building a nest this year suggests that social 
distancing and stay-at-home policies are helping them.

Maybe, if the NPS will extend the protection to a wider section of the beach 
and ban dogs completely from the far eat end of the beach might bring more 
birds to nest here. We might even see Piping Plovers nesting here. This would 
be my dream and I believe many other birders' dreams.

Re: [nysbirds-l] Oystercatcher nest in unprotected area

2020-05-20 Thread Doug Gochfeld
For the record, American Oystercatcher has nested at this site annually for
the past 5 years or more, with the nest typically being right in the area
Gus described.

Here is a checklist with photos (by Bobbi Manian) of two recently hatched
young from this site in 2015:
https://ebird.org/checklist/S23762945

It is most excellent that they’ll have some protection for the nest this
year.

That said, the post-hatching stage seems to be the especially problematic
period of time at this site, as I don’t know that any of these successfully
hatched chicks have made it to the point of fledging/flight.

Good Birding

Thanks a lot, Joe. This is great.
I didn't think it was possible.

RE: [nysbirds-l] Oystercatcher nest in unprotected area

2020-05-19 Thread Joe Jannsen
Gus,

I reached out to a Gateway contact to see if they can get this nest protected.

Thanks.

Joe

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Oystercatcher nest in unprotected area

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.

Gus Keri
