At about noon I was driving along Snyder Road north of the Ithaca International Airport 😊 looking for possible N. Harriers.
I saw instead the usual Red-tailed Hawk, who, annoyed at me driving slowly by it perched on the N-S eastern fence,
took off and acted like a Harrier, flying very low over the ground to a more distant place to perch on another fence.
Besides the Red-tail, I saw some A. Crows and I think I heard an Eastern Meadowlark; it sang only part of its usual song.
I did not see it.
Meanwhile, here at the old folks home, Nelly Farnum is sure she heard a Woodcock peenting over on Mount Kendal !
We are going out tomorrow at dusk to try to hear/see it. I may go tonight after dinner.
I had a pretty Song Sparrow in my “back yard” for a while yesterday.
Finally, our Kendal Screech Owl has not been seen in its perfect tree hole for over a week ☹.
