Worried I had missed all the action while I was away in NC these past 10
days, I was happy to see the sights of northern spring around my house this
morning:

Tree swallows battling with the Bluebirds over nesting boxes
Ruby-crowned Kinglets darting about the pine trees and singing
Hermt Thrush calling
Yellow-bellied sapsuckers yakking and drummng
Chipping Sparrow singing from atop the spruce tree
Barred Owls vocalizing
Flickers, Robins, Song Sparrows, Purple Finch and Juncos rounding out the
mix.
Heard the first peepers calling last night.

Pure delight to awaken this bright and sunny morn to the exuberant flight of Tree Swallows over the beaver ponds downhill from my house in Kortright.

Subject: [osbirds] Spring birds in Treadwell
Wednesday morning a group of about 10 northern flickers were feeding at the end of my street. Today they were in the large yard across from my house. They really pound into the ground with their bills to get whatever morsel is there.

Yesterday a grackle flew off with nesting material from my gardens.

A late morning walk to the park with my dog this morning turned up a group of about 8 or so eastern phoebes, all flitting about, poking into the snow, then flying to branches on low bushes. They must be finding something to eat. And of course robins and juncos are everywhere. Soon the juncos will head up into the mountains.

At the barn there are lots of song sparrows and robins that hang out on the manure pile. Bugs and seeds, I'm sure. And a male yellow bellied sapsucker was drumming on the front of the apartment bird house. Sadly, I found one dead in the road on Sunday. Such brilliant red, a truly beautiful bird. I haven't heard or seen the killdeer again since their arrival. I don't think they are too fond of snow.

Only one eagle sitting on the nest yesterday, late morning. No sign of any others. If eggs did hatch I should see one or more heads popping up and down in about a week.

Subject: RE: [osbirds] Bald Eagles in Treadwell





I’ll have to keep a close watch to see if there are only three, or possibly four. I would think an adult would always be at the nest when chicks are pretty newly hatched, but… maybe there are two or possibly three chicks this year and the adults really have to hustle for food. In which case I may have seen all the adults, and there is not a fourth one. The creek just got stocked by the DEC for fishing season, so the eagles are going to have an easier time getting food for a while, until they clean out all but the most wary fish. There was no sign of the eagles today, but that is to be expected in this weather. Both morning and evening chores were done in the pouring rain, so I couldn’t see much of anything.

There was a long-term nest in NY State--I can't remember the locale--where three adult Bald Eagles successfully raised broods for a number of years. I think the gender mix was 2 males/1 female.

Even the arrival of a few of my favorite song birds this past week couldn't top Sunday's bald eagle activity. I went out of the barn to dump a wheelbarrow to have an adult BE fly right by me, upstream, with something in its talons trailing a streamer of plant material. Just moments later another adult BE flew in the same path, but without any prey. And moments after that a HUGE dark, splotchy raptor circled, flapping, over the park and creek. For just a second I thought Golden Eagle, and then realized this must be Stuart, last year's offspring. Stuart headed downstream. And then in just a few more moments another adult BE flew upstream, but veered off after passing over the bridge, circled back over the park and headed downstream in the same basic path Stuart took. About five minutes later an adult flew upstream carrying whatever in its talons.



So, there are three adult BEs here! There did not appear to be any territorial displays, just this travel up and down the creek, apparently with prey involved. This explains why Eric told me he saw two adults near the creek Friday evening. I was concerned that this meant they were both off the nest, not a good sign at this point in time, especially given the horrible wind storm of last week (although the nest appeared fine, I didn't get where I could spot adults on it). But now it makes sense. I suspect an egg or eggs have hatched and there is quite a hustle to feed the young. But to have a third adult in the mix?? That seems odd unless it is a newly matured relative that does not yet have a mate. I've no idea if "family" participation is common or rare in the eagle world. And to see them each, one after the other, means there couldn't have been an adult remaining at the nest. Unless there are actually four adults here and one was still at the nest! Not counting Stuart, I don't think she would be participating, just coexisting with her family.



As the morning wore on and I continued my chores Stuart and one adult perched in a tree about 150 feet from the barn, staying there for a good 20 minutes. Stuart wasn't perched out in the open quite as much as the adult, but a while after they both had left Stuart returned and picked a very open perch, no branches in the way. Stuart is just plain huge! In flight this bird appears to dwarf the other adults, and even sitting on a perch 150 feet from me her tremendous size is so obvious.



I was back at the barn to give a young friend a riding lesson from 11:30 to 12:30, but didn't see the eagles again. However I did see a pair of red tailed hawks circling around near the old nest site, and a kestrel flying around near the creek. Oh, and a pair of Canada geese, and a merganser. It was quite a busy day at the Treadwell creek.

Hi all,

This afternoon there were hoarders of Robins in our back field, and a lone Northern Flicker in the yard, closer to the house, looking for ants, I presume!

It’s beginning to look a lot more like spring at my house! I suppose I can wait a couple more days for the spring-like temps to arrive!

Hi all,

A short spring walk in the Arnold Lake State Forest on a dreary cold day turned up a few birds of interest. My ID skills are slipping, because I am not sure what any of them were! But I’ll take guesses here:
1. *heard* what I thought was a Brown Creeper, but never saw it. This is the one I’m surest of!
2. A single bird, warbler size, flitting around in a bare deciduous tree. I think it was a Golden-crowned Kinglet.
3. A pair of birds that looked like wood thrushes, but they were making a single, low, alarm note that I’m not sure could belong to a wood thrush. Did have a darkness to the beak tip - maybe hermit thrushes?

Humbling to go out and not know for sure the identities of any bird seen - OH! Except for the one chickadee! 😝

Dorian--

There was a long-term nest in NY State--I can't remember the
locale--where three adult Bald Eagles successfully raised broods for a
number of years. I think the gender mix was 2 males/1 female.

Even the arrival of a few of my favorite song birds this past week couldn't top Sunday's bald eagle activity. I went out of the barn to dump a wheelbarrow to have an adult BE fly right by me, upstream, with something in its talons trailing a streamer of plant material. Just moments later another adult BE flew in the same path, but without any prey. And moments after that a HUGE dark, splotchy raptor circled, flapping, over the park and creek. For just a second I thought Golden Eagle, and then realized this must be Stuart, last year's offspring. Stuart headed downstream. And then in just a few more moments another adult BE flew upstream, but veered off after passing over the bridge, circled back over the park and headed downstream in the same basic path Stuart took. About five minutes later an adult flew upstream carrying whatever in its talons.


So, there are three adult BEs here! There did not appear to be any territorial displays, just this travel up and down the creek, apparently with prey involved. This explains why Eric told me he saw two adults near the creek Friday evening. I was concerned that this meant they were both off the nest, not a good sign at this point in time, especially given the horrible wind storm of last week (although the nest appeared fine, I didn't get where I could spot adults on it).

Not counting Stuart, I don't think she would be participating, just coexisting with her family.



As the morning wore on and I continued my chores Stuart and one adult perched in a tree about 150 feet from the barn, staying there for a good 20 minutes. Stuart wasn't perched out in the open quite as much as the adult, but a while after they both had left Stuart returned and picked a very open perch, no branches in the way. Stuart is just plain huge!

I was back at the barn to give a young friend a riding lesson from 11:30 to 12:30, but didn't see the eagles again. However I did see a pair of red tailed hawks circling around near the old nest site, and a kestrel flying around near the creek. Oh, and a pair of Canada geese, and a merganser.

calling, and a couple of Red-breasted Nuthatches which, surprisingly, were
foraging in the leaf litter on the ground. I had never observed that

Just looked out the window and there is a flicker out there. He's flying around the feeder trying to see what all the fuss is about. I have a great look at the brilliant gold of the underside of the wings as he flits about- yellow shafted.He'd probably eat some of the suet I had out there except the downy, hairy and red-bellied woodpeckers finished it off yesterday. I'll have to look at the woodpecker tree around the corner to see if the flickers are nesting there. It's a big old hollow dead tree that the woodpeckers love to peck on- nice resonance. The flickers will do their courtship dance on it.

A yellow shafted flicker came around to see what all the fuss was about at the feeder. I could really see the brilliant gold undersides of the wings as he flitted about. He probably would have eaten some of the suet except the hairy, downy and red-bellied woodpeckers finished it off yesterday.

The feeder was hopping today with birds. Besides the usual birds that have been here for the past few months I had my first sighting of a phoebe and a towhee. Not at the feeder, but nearby was a yellow bellied sapsucker. 16 species in all and that's not counting the ones I've seen since then.

I had a brown creeper in the yard today. The song sparrows and juncos have been joined by white throated sparrows and chipping sparrows. Under the feeder was a reddish bird that I thought was a fox sparrow, but it turned out to be a brown thrasher.

I went to Brookwood Gardens. Sad to see so many trees cut down- lost a lot of nesting places. There were lots of birds, but my binoculars are being repaired so I couldn't really see well enough to identify most of them. I could hear a red-bellied woodpecker and a YB sapsucker. As I walked down the trail I was surrounded by small birds, chipping sparrows, about a dozen ruby crowned kinglets and others. I think there was a loon out on the lake- it sat low in the water, but without my binoculars... Hope I get them back soon.

From Dave Nicosia--birder and NWS meteorologist in Binghamton--on
potential bird migration today through Sunday.

Andy Mason

********************************************

Last night there was massive migration in the eastern U.S that
stopped in northern NY state where there was a rather diffuse front.
Not sure if there will be any significant concentration of migrants.
This morning as of this writing the front at the surface is across
the northern counties of PA and then drops southeast south of the
Catskills. At about 5000 feet up the front is farther north roughly
from Buffalo to south of Albany but again it is not a very sharp
front yet. At about 10000 feet up the winds are from the west and
its hard to find any front. So what this means is that birds that
migrate between 5000 and 10000 feet and up probably will keep going
unless they encounter precipitation. At this point there isn't much
precipitation near NY or in the northeast U.S. Once the storm
intensifies in the Midwest and pulls east, the front at all levels
up to 10-15 thousand feet will sharpen up and precipitation will
spread east.

Right now it looks like the surface front will lift back north to
the southern tier of NY state today but the precipitation will
stream across northern NY so I wouldn't expect too much just
arrivals and some pockets of migrants.

For tonight, the precipitation and associated front aloft shifts
south and looks to be setting up from about Buffalo to Albany and it
will be raining north of this. The surface front will actually drop
south into northern PA but it will be shallow as the precipitation
will be farther north. So I would expect best conditions across
upstate NY north of the southern tier, which includes the Finger
Lakes area, and Buffalo to Albany.

Its hard enough to predict the weather so trying to predict what the
birds will do is even harder. Hopefully some of this will pan out.

Good Luck!

That's interesting. It is also interesting that the photos came through in
the email. That is not supposed to happen.

On the subject of odd sapsuckers, a few years ago I got a call from the
Town of Hartwick. Someone had a yellow and black woodpecker in their yard.
Nothing was making much sense until I went over to look at it. It was a
sapsucker on which all the normally white feathers were yellow.

Very interesting indeed, Kathryn! Birds of North America On One also mentions this female variant (See quote below.). But could your photo be that of an immature Y-b Sapsucker?

"Small-medium woodpecker; length about 21–22 cm; mass 43–55 g. Black bib on upper breast, prominent red forehead and crown with black border and band at rear, black stripe along side of head bordered by 2 white stripes that join at nape, crown red, large white wing-patch formed by median and greater coverts, back blackish (with yellowish barring), rump white, and underparts buffy or yellow-tinged. Chin and throat mostly red in male, white in female. Some females with reduced or no red on forehead, but otherwise similar to male in plumage and size. Juveniles similar to adults but with black on head and breast replaced by brownish and subdued red-and-white head markings.

Yesterday early evening, in a lovely drive home from the Cannonsville
Reservoir along the back roads, I saw many signs of spring (from the
passenger seat :) --

Too many Robins to count in every open field
Kettle of over 20 Turkey Vultures circling near Trout Creek
5 Kestrels hunting or perched on wires
3 Ring-necked Ducks, 3 Wood Ducks, and 5 Common Mergansers
2 Great Blue Herons in the flooded fields along the Delaware
1 Red-tailed Hawk perched

About half the Reservoir still has a skim of ice, but the river ends are
high and rushing.

The Purple Finch and Juncos have been singing in our back yard for the past
week, and the Phoebe can not be far behind.

Below are links to the story of a snowy owl (nicknamed Baltimore) that was
captured and fitted with a GPS transmitter as part of Project Snowstorm in
2013. One is a video by New Hampshire public radio, and one is further text
from Project Snowstorm. The story is very engaging, and made the more so in
light of our own DOAS golden eagle tagging efforts. It is so interesting to
be able to know exactly where an individual bird has been, and for how
