Observers: Sandy Bright

Visitors:
We were very thankful for the hours of assistance from David Diaz, Leslie
Preston, and Lorraine and Nigel. Other visitors included Orazio Marine and
Thimas Reilly from Cobleskill and several others.


Weather:
Visibility was decent above the horizon early, but valley fog slowly rose
to obscure first the horizon, then the whole sky for about an hour. Even
the close tree line appeared hazy. Conditions the rest of the day were
excellent, with light NW winds and good visibility.

Raptor Observations:
Early raptors were visible naked-eye, with some flying low overhead. Later,
most were distant and high, often visible only through binoculars.
Migrating BEs passed at 10:42 (AD), 11:57 (IMM) and 3:34 (sub-AD). A few
sightings of a local adult and Red-tails. One Broadwing detoured to harass
a TV, diving at it twice.

Non-raptor Observations:
The usual songbirds, including Purple Finch, RB Grosbeak, Red-eyed Vireo,
Chimney Swifts, and more, along with many monarchs and dragonflies.

Visitors:

Weather:
Partly cloudy all day with relatively no winds. Slight drizzle in the
afternoon for a few minutes.

Raptor Observations:
Good conditions for BW provided a fair number of birds. First bird BW at
8:30. A steady flow small kettles and single birds continued throughout the
day. Largest kettle around 25 birds. Imm. BE migrated, along with an Adult
NG, which caught lift, and streamed high over our heads to the SW - Tom
Salo and I both agreed on the decision to count it as a migrant. Local BE,
TV, BV and RT were also seen steadily throughout the day. Much thanks to
Marilyn and Tom for the help today.

Non-raptor Observations:
Another good day for passerines. Notables included COYE, BTGW, AMRE, MAWA,
REVI, LEFL, EAPH, and 2 RTHU.

Hi all,

My partner heard a Saw Whet Owl at 4am on Saturday morning. When I awoke, she mimicked it quite well, and I knew just what she had heard!

This is a first for our yard.

From: 'Bright, Sandy' <brights...> [osbirds] <osbirds...>
Subject: [osbirds] More Nighthawks
Since Charlie and I had twice recently seen Common Nighthawks hunting over
the Oneonta Sports Park (east end) around 6:00 in the evening, we decided
to take a picnic dinner out there and watch for awhile. Arriving around
5:40, we almost immediately spotted one, which was quickly joined by two
more. Over the next ten minutes or so, more showed up, seeming to arrive
from the direction of the river, eventually numbering at least 13 (there
may have been more, but they were hard to count with the sun glaring,
ring-billed gulls milling around, and some flying high in the distance,
visible only through binoculars). They foraged until about 6:20, then left,
moving downriver. We hung around a little longer, but no more showed up.

I don't know much about nighthawk migration. I assume none of these birds
are those we've seen on previous days, but I don't know for sure. If we
went to the sports park every evening at this time, would we continue to
see nighthawks on a regular basis? Could we have seen them last year had we
been in that area at the right time of day?

I'm going to try to get out there again around 6:00. If anyone else does,
please let me know if you see any nighthawks.

Re the greater numbers of ravens for Tom - are they like crows? I am
wondering about what happens to a breeding pair's offspring. Might ravens
tolerate relatives over non-relatives? And if there are more ravens
suddenly than could be explained by offspring, maybe some word has spread
among the breeding pair's relatives.

Subject: Re: [osbirds] Re: More Nighthawks
Leslie and I met at the Sports Park this evening to look for nighthawks.
Initially we couldn’t find any, but then realized that there was a group
well beyond the field, visible only through binoculars. Luckily a few
meandered our way, flying overhead and giving us good views.

So that’s 3 days in a row in that location.

Subject: Re: [osbirds] Re: Ravens and crows
Oddly, Alice's message didn't show in my inbox. I saw it within Andy's
reply.

The conventional wisdom is that ravens parents drive off their young
once they are independent. Crows raise young as a family group at times.
Ravens do not, as far as I know.

Another thought occurred to me. Large numbers of ravens persist well
into March when crows begin nesting. Having such a congregation during
nesting season may affect whether the crows will even attempt to nest
nearby.

Given other's comments, I'm now wondering if this is intensely local, and
might have something to do with my winter time, cervid based bird feeding
station. It attracts 50 to 70 ravens each winter. In previous years, it seemed
only the resident pair remained during the breeding season. This year,
multiple birds have been around all spring and summer. Maybe they are
persisting and the resident pair have give up trying to evict them.

Subject: [osbirds] Nighthawks again
After spending the day up at the Franklin Mountain Hawkwatch, where we
saw no migrating raptors (only a few dozen turkey vultures, a local
bald eagle, a local Redtail, and a variety of non-raptors), Sandy and
I went to the Oneonta Sports Park to hit some golf balls. While there,
we saw a bald eagle, a red tail, and four common nighthawks.

Andy, thanks so much for this link to listening to the incredible naturalist/scientist and outstanding writer Bernd Heinrich talk about his many approaches to the natural world! I’ve avidly read just about all of his books over the years, starting with his two books on ravens. My favorite remains Life Everlasting, the Animal Way of Death. And yes, he has been a world-class long distance runner as well.

I've also had less ravens than usual this summer and plenty of crows. Tom, perhaps your crows have come to East Meredith? I hear we have a nicer climate.

A few days ago we had about 30 blackbirds (starling, grackle mix) land on our front lawn and spend about 5 minutes walking around before they decided it wasn't for them. That was a a first.

Good point. I am not sure when they are here but I have been seeing them

Lots of crows in village of Cooperstown. I watched five being intimidated
and finally driven off from under the butternut tree across the street by a
gray squirrel. I laughed out loud. I assume that squirrel was defending
the place where the butternuts that they bury all over my yard will collect..

Crows in expected high numbers around here (6 miles NE of Coopertstown).
Ravens seem fewer than usual this season but definitely around. Interesting
how these local numbers vary.


Yesterday a Great Blue Heron suddenly appeared as it took off from the side
of the road and missed hitting my traveling vehicle by inches.

I had never heard or seen a raven in my immediate surroundings until this year.  We had a raven's nest in the woods behind our house.  It was a most raucous time while those babies were being nurtured.  But, we also still have many crows in the vicinity (Milford Center).

Subject: [osbirds] Ravens and crows
Once, ravens weren't here, or they were very rare, occasionally passing
through in the fall. Over the past 2 decades they've become quite regular
year-round. This summer they are being seen much more frequently than
crows.

In my 36 years at this location, crows have usually been numerous and
noisy. Territories were clear, with regular conflicts at the borders. Now
there are many fewer, and I rarely hear them. I was made aware of this
yesterday. Hearing a single crow some distance away, I had a sudden
realization that I had not heard one in quite some time. Ravens are being
seen and heard every day, if not every hour. Crows aren't exactly rare but
they are certainly are much less obvious than in the past.

The relative numbers of ravens and crows here on the Appalachian Plateau
this summer remind me of what I found in the wild areas of the western
Adirodacks where I did a lot of breeding bird atlas surveys.
