Subject: [cayugabirds-l] osprey on hogs hole platfrom
This morning as I drove by, there was an osprey sitting on the platform
that is just north of hogs hole, but south of the Hangar, right along rt
89. There is often red tail who hunts from that platform but this is the
first time I've seen an osprey on it. It also looked like there was a new
stick or maybe sticks on it. I will keep a watch, as I drive past 2x a day.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Update on Next Week's Potential Migration "Surge"
All,

Looking at the three most reliable medium range models, the GFS, European
and Canadian models, we continue to see a large high pressure system
setting up over the southeast U.S Monday night. This high extends from the
surface up through up through 10,000 feet and with its clockwise flow,
Monday night will see a southeasterly flow across the Gulf of Mexico
focusing on Texas and the west Gulf States in the lowest 5000-7000 feet.
Then the flow curves more southerly and then southwesterly by the time it
reaches the northeast U.S. So Tuesday May 1st may see a lot of arrivals
along with temperatures in the 70s and even low 80s in some areas. The bulk
of the migration Monday night will be west of NY state but there is a good
potential for southerly overshoots especially in western and central NY. I
expect a lot of our earlier warbler species, Baltimore orioles,
rose-breasted grosbeaks, and maybe a few early scarlet tanagers and indigo
buntings to arrive among many others.

Then for Tuesday night, the winds in the lowest 5000-7000 feet will come
right across the Gulf of Mexico up the west side of the Appalachians into
NY state. It looks like more migrants for western/central NY with this flow
pattern. May 2nd should be an awesome day with temperature pushing 80 in
many areas and a lot of new arrivals. I don't see fallout conditions just
new arrivals.

Then Wednesday night, things get more complicated, the european model
brings a cold front through which will intercept this southerly flow making
the 3rd potentially interesting. However, the GFS and Canadian are slower
with this front. The Canadian brings it through Thursday night to Friday
the 4th, the GFS holds it off until the weekend of the 5th and 6th. So that
is where the uncertainty lies, when does this cold front come through and
end this early neotropical migrant surge into NY state. The European closes
the window earliest, late on the 2nd, the GFS keeps the fun going all next
week.

Bottom line, we are looking at May 1st and most of May 2nd as good days for
new arrivals with a cold front coming through the late on the 2nd to the
5th to drop down migrants.

More updates to follow as things become clearer...

Go to birdcast for awesome information up to this weekend. I am looking out
beyond the time period of birdcast of which weather predictions get much
more complicated, making the more detailed information that birdcast
provides impossible...

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Ospreys on Owasco and possibly Seneca Lakes
Ospreys have been seen regularly on Lake Owasco for the last two years (I
saw one just yesterday) and I am trying to find the nests. There have also
been a few sitings on Seneca Lake, but the only nests I can find there are
the defunct ones at the Greenidge Power facility in Dresden.

With the help of several friends and fellow birders, I am surveying the
osprey population in the Finger Lakes and depend on area birders for their
help. If you live or travel around Seneca, Owasco, and Skaneateles lakes
and see an osprey, *PLEASE* email me the approximate location ASAP. If you
see one fishing, please let me know the direction it flew with the
fish—chances are it's going back to its nest.

Thank you very much for your help! Good Birding!

Eyes to the sky!
Candace

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Cayuga Bird Trip to Stewart Park, Renwick Woods
On Sunday morning, April 22ed 13 people joined me for a walk in the
park.  The sunshine was awesome, but there was a light breeze at the
start making it quite chilly.   There was a nice group of male and
female Ruddy Ducks right offshore for great viewing.  Such beautiful
ducks.  The majority of waterfowl out on the water were Scaup and
Bufflehead.  The Bufflehead were scattered all over, many of the males
doing their courtship dances.  From here we also observed Common
Mergansers, a Kingfisher flyby, and a Fish Crow sounding  its nasal
call, flying up into a nearby tree.  There was a Mallard pair along the
shore and a Killdeer called and walked along the shoreline.  We observed
a couple Caspian Terns flying around and going back towards the
lighthouse.   A Phoebe made an appearance, and a couple Song Sparrows
also walked along the shore at one point.  Out towards the end of the
light house jetty were Double-creasted Cormorants and a Great
Black-backed Gull.   A single Eastern Bluebird flew up onto the top of
one of the swings nearby. From the walk around the Swan Pen, we saw
Hooded Merganser females out on the inlet.  Suan Yong was leading an SFO
group and had found a Red-throated Loon out on the lake and he helped us
locate it. This bird showed a lot of white, so did not appear to be in
breeding plumage yet.
     As we walked along the inlet a Sandpiper was spotted.  Sure enough
the bobbing bird was a Spotted Sandpiper.   A pair of Wood Ducks flew in
and across the water from us but landed behind grasses, and we could not
find them again.   We spotted both Ruby-crowned and Golden-crowned
Kinglets.   As we walked along the western most trail in Renwick, along
the water,  a beautiful pair of Hooded Mergansers flew out towards the
lake.  There was a male and two female Hooded Mergansers out on the
water.  Someone spotted a Green Heron on a fallen log at the waters
edge, quite close to us. It tolerated us for awhile, so everyone could
see it and then flew off.  We heard and saw a Tufted Titmouse.  We heard
Northern Cardinal and Northern Flicker, but otherwise it was quite quiet.
     We decided to drive over to the golf course to check on the
nesting Great-horned Owl.  About six of us drove over and were surprised
to see a large chick sitting right up in the nest.  At first we did not
see the female, until she moved her head and we saw the ear tufts.  She
blended right in with the tree trunk.  As we watched, we spotted another
chick.   The chicks were moving around a lot and looking this way and
that, a lot of fun to see.  We also had two Mockingbirds flying around
some bushes out on the golf course.
    Four of us walked the road around towards Jetty Woods to see if we
could get another angle on the Owl nest.  Indeed we did find a good spot
to observe the owl nest from.   Three Tree Swallows flying around,
vocalizing and chasing each other.   Susan Soboroff and I continued out
to the end of the Jetty Wood path in hopes of seeing some early
warblers.  We did not find warblers but saw a couple Ruby-crowned
Kinglets, and a Cormorant flew over carrying nesting material.  We found
a Horned Grebe out on the lake, the feathered yellow horns were
beautiful in the sunshine.
Thanks to all who joined me for the morning.

Good birding,
Gladys

Behind the campus is the Ithaca College Natural Lands area
http://www.icnaturallands.com/about
On days like we are having this week, it's a great place to go at lunch for
a good walk.

My office is on the top floor of one of the Towers and faces this area as
well. I've been watching a pair of Red-Tailed Hawks build a nest at the top
of a pine tree so I struck out yesterday to find them up close.

I know what tree they are in but failed to see the nest. I did see an
American Crow flying with nest materials as well but once he spotted me, he
rested on a branch and wouldn't reveal where he was going.

Those woods are also filled with Pileateds and other woodpeckers. And
randomly, co-workers have shown me pictures of hawks who roost on the
building outside the office windows including a Cooper's last year.

Many of you on CayugaBirds know Lang, and some of you may even subscribe to his podcasts. The link above is to the one he just posted: a spring morning bird walk. As we have all noted, spring is a bit tardy this year. Lang’s recording pretty well covers the soundscape of backyard birds in the Ithaca area right now - shortly before it becomes overwhelmed with warblers, vireos, and flycatchers.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] May 1-2 first big push of neotropical migrants????
I am going out on a limb here, but as a professional weather forecaster we
do this at times!! Our three main medium range models, the GFS, European
and Canadian Models, all are indicating a Bermuda high set up for the May
1-2 time period. There could be a straight shot of strong low-level winds
from central America to the northeast U.S for a 24 to 36 hour window. I
assume there will be continued arrivals this week into the weekend but it
will be delayed some as we will see more stormy weather. Wednesday and
Thursday we will see rainy conditions and potentially good migratory days
for NY state. The weekend will be chilly before a potentially large high
pressure system stalls off the southeast coast and leads to this strong
southerly flow and hence potential influx of our favorite neotropical
migrants, like warblers, orioles, RB grosbeaks etc. This is something to
plan for but could change since we are 7 to 8 day out. I will continue to
monitor and let you know.

Also, please check out the Cornell Lab of O's Birdcast as these guys
continue to improve and enhance this site! This site gives you amazing
resources to help plan your birding during migration season including
expected fallouts, expected species. Great stuff!!! http://birdcast.info/

Subject: Re: [cayugabirds-l] What a Morning!
There is NO contrast as the sky is cloudless. No doubt a big push likely
going on, but maybe hard to see and very high up. Thermal heights yesterday
with full sun reached around 8000 feet high!! Might be hard to see,
especially on a cloudless sky.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Bonapartes flock Myers
At about 5:30pm I watched the arrival of a nice flock of Bonapartes Gulls to join the gulls on the one remaining above-water gravel bar off Salt Point at Myers.

There were 23 in all, all but 2 in adult breeding plumage. Unfortunately they only stayed less than 10 minutes, and all took off heading north. Probably more on the way, though!

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Bald Eagle nest on Maplewood Rd, Ulysses
The Bald Eagle nest on Maplewood Road in Ulysses is active again this year. Yesterday we saw two little heads poking up above the edge of the nest while a watchful parent perched close by!

Subject: Re: [cayugabirds-l] Broad-winged hawk
I heard and saw a Broad-winged Hawk this morning in apparent possession of the traditional Maple Ave territory. Quite a few other Broad-wings were passing over West Danby, right through the midday. Then at about 2:30 there was some kind of aggressive interaction at treetop level involving three individuals.

We had him yesterday down in Spencer. I've really enjoyed seeing the dark

Fox sparrows are still over the place in Broome Co, often multiple birds and many birds singing! How nice it is to hear so often the last week or so...

Hey all.

My daughter Jessica was at the dog park early this morning. She watched a man and his dog go right up to the base of the osprey nest and was pointing his camera straight up at them. They were quite agitated and left the nest and then returned vocalizing in distress. Jess was trying to yell at him from a distance. I won’t repeat what she said.

I don’t know how people can be prevented from this. Just wanted to alert you all.

Thanks.

Kevin et al,

It sounds fantastic, but even though I'm no Luddite, I am clinging to my
flip phone as if my life depends on it, reluctant to have a smart phone and
yield to the mind-control powers of the big tech giants like Amazon,
Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Apple.

I will be traveling and would love to avail myself of the benefits you
described, but I fear my birding will be constrained by my fear of big
brother.

Still no Fox Sparrows (satisfying bird content protocol).

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Sunday Cayuga Bird Club Trip at Stewart Park
Hi Everyone,
A reminder that I will be leading a Cayuga Bird Club trip at Stewart
Park and Renwick Woods area this coming Sunday, April 22ed.  Meet at the
parking area near the tennis courts towards the west side at 7:30 AM. 
The weather is looking UP!  for warmer temps and lots of sunshine.  We
will be looking to see what birds may be out on the waterfront, and any
new returning migrants.

 Please dress for the weather and bring water and a snack.  Everyone is
welcome, regardless of experience level or membership status. Any
questions, please email me at <gjb5...>

Good birding,

Gladys

You can find the same information in eBird, but it takes more finagling to find it there. In Merlin, go to "Explore Birds" from the main screen, go up to the icon at the top that looks like lines and spots, click "Likely Birds," then filter by your current location and date. I suggest using "Family - Most Likely." That puts all the sparrows together, all the ducks, etc. Scroll down to the sparrows, and there, 11th on the list is Fox Sparrow. You can see by the bar chart that it's never abundant, but that it's usually seen in March and April, and that we're getting to the end of the narrow window when they normally occur.

> If you browse the sparrows, you see that the next most/least likely sparrow here this time of year is White-crowned. But, comparing the two bar charts shows that Fox Sparrows should be on their way out, while White-crowns should just be coming in.

> Also interesting, if you browse farther down the list, is that we have just gone through the peak time of Vesper Sparrow reports. And, unlike the other two species, they breed here! But, apparently they show up more on eBird checklists during April as they arrive and can't get to their breeding grounds yet, what with the snow and all, and show up in parking lots and roadsides the way they have done this last week or two. There have been dozens of Vesper Sparrow reports all over the county this last week and a half, and that perfectly reflects the bar chart in Merlin based on ebird checklists.

> I've been a half-hearted endorser of Merlin over the last few years because, frankly, I don't need the help identifying birds. But, the app is becoming much more than what it started as, and it's growing all the time. It's now one of the fastest and easiest portals to finding what birds are to be expected at a specific time of year, pretty much everywhere in the world. Soon it is going to be a reference source for birds all over the world, with photos, songs, and maps. Already it covers all of the US and Canada, Mexico, and most of Central America, as well as parts of Colombia and northwestern Europe. And it's growing every day.

> I did a West Coast business trip in February, and I used Merlin to tell me what birds to expect in the places I visited. I went to Oregon, and Merlin told me that Acorn Woodpeckers would be common in Medford, west of the Cascade Mountains, but would be rare in Klamath Falls, east of the mountains. It told me that I'd be seeing California Quail all along most of my drive to San Diego, but when I went to Joshua Tree National Park, I would be seeing Gambel's Quail.

> So, just a head's up to the birding community. The Cornell Lab's Merin app is not just some cute toy for beginners. (Although, it did get my bird-averse sister to start liking looking at birds.) It's becoming a powerful tool for traveling birders to use all over the world. Currently, it only has photos, maps, and information for the areas I mentioned above. But, it already can give you a list of the most likely birds you will see anywhere on earth. Well, anywhere there are eBird checklists. But, every eBird checklist you put in from some exotic locale helps the program refine its results and improve the accuracy of its predictions. And, every photo you upload to an eBird checklist from a foreign location gets Merlin closer to being able to identify that species from photos, and closer to having photos available in the app.

> Latin America has an avid and active birding presence, so we can expect big strides there in the near future. But, it also has the most diverse and complex suite of birds on the planet, so, that's a hurdle. I personally hope that southern and eastern Europe will be covered completely soon (I have a trip there scheduled in late June), but it seems that India is going to jump ahead in the line ahead of other expected regions.
>
> Indian birders have enthusiastically embraced eBird the last couple of years, and they're pumping sightings and photos into the database. I spoke to someone in Oregon at the bird festival I was attending (Winter Wings) who was from India. He wanted to show me his photos from birding in India (very nice), and I told him to put them into checklists in eBird because every photo uploaded for a species (especially good ones like his) put Merin a step closer to getting the identification program to being able to ID it, but also that every photo gets the bird guide portion closer to being able to offer it to the regular folks. He responded that he thought that was awesome, and that he knew that the people in the bird clubs in India would be excited to contribute.

> So, as New Yorkers say, Excelsior! Ever upward! Honestly, I've been birding since the lat 1960s and early 1970s, about 50 years. There has never been such a great time to be a birder as right now. You can get spectacular binoculars and scopes for relatively cheap. Birding references are abundant (including the courses I've created at https://academy.allaboutbirds.org/course-list/). You can find out almost real-time information about what rare birds are where. You have information on your phone about what birds are likely anywhere on earth, and you can actually have your phone make a tentative identification from a photo you took with that phone. As he said in the Princess Bride, "Inconceivable!" We may very well be living in the best of all conceivable worlds.

No Fox Sparrows, but I plan to observe and listen very carefully tomorrow
morning. Heard a drumming sapsucker this morning and another lone Barred
Owl last evening when I was taking down the feeders. Also a lot of Flickers
flushing from roadside areas and yards when driving.

You can have some of my siskins any ol' time. How about 6 siskins for one
Fox Sparrow? They're territoriality is likely chasing away some something
I'm hankering to see. My plans for the morning include kinglets, Fox
Sparrows, and Pine Warblers. Here that, you boids??

I am going to be in Albuquerque and eastern NM next week and LA the week
after, so hope to expand my list then. Never seen a Scissor-tailed
Flycatcher yet.

I think everyone is struggling to find any kind of food in this spring that
is mostly devoid of insects. Leaf litter would be a logical place to look.

West Danby enjoyed a bright sunrise. There was hardly a cloud in the sky for a short period this morning. I had Fox Sparrows singing from all directions, a couple of Hermit Thrushes drinking or bathing or foraging at the pond outlet, Wood Ducks on the pond, a Brown Thrasher rummaging under the shrubs, c. 50 Juncos at the feeders, a lone Pine Siskin, a few Golden-crowned Kinglets, a Phoebe, etcetera.

The UPLAND SANDPIPER continues across the road in a field from 149 Owen
Hill Road in Lisle, NY. This was the original field it was found in
yesterday. The bird at times hunkers down and is hard to see. The location
I put on ebird is the exact spot we saw it. If you put the ebird map in
satellite view, you can clearly see the field that it frequents.

Here are two photos from this morning(more to come):

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S44747917


We have determined that this is the first recorded Upland Sandpiper in
Broome Co in at least 20 years!

Derek Green found an Upland Sandpiper this morning on Owen Hill Road in
Lisle, NY. The bird was refound again at around 230 pm by Kevin McGann at
183 Owen Hill Road at 42.3623,-76.0361
I imagine with north winds tonight and Friday and continued snow showers
the bird probably will stick around.

see https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S44716453 for some good photos by
Derek. This is the first "uppie" we have had in Broome co. in at least a
dozen years!

Subject: Re: [cayugabirds-l] Juncos
I ran into the surfeit of juncos on Sunday, while walking my dog Sandy from Larue Road to Curtis Road along Fisher Settlement Road, which parallels Miller Creek in the Danby State Forest. If there were any Pine Warblers along there (as seemed likely enough), they were swamped by all the Juncos: I guesstimated a couple hundred. By contrast, the few Fox Sparrows were easy to hear. So don’t despair, Asher, they may be working up the creek toward you...

On Monday, it was an excess of Flickers instead, so I read John’s story with interest. I flushed 10-15 of them out of one West Danby yard just by driving by.

rest of the juncos which haven't made it to Laura's yard yet! Can't count
'em, but must be 70 or 80 and there are ton above at the feeders. Also many
Pine Siskins mixed in, but, NO Fox Sparrows.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Western Meadowlark
The Western Meadowlark was still present on Armitage Road this morning. It was singing from about 8:40 to 9 am. It was heard first in trees near the house nearest to Olmstead Road and on the south side of Armitage Rd., so in Seneca County, then had a visual of a singing bird (but with its back to us, darn!) in the trees near the house closest to Wiley Road and on the north side of Armitage, so in Wayne County. It was last seen and heard flying north. It seemed to be exhibiting territorial behavior, namely singing from treetops and flying in a (partial) circle around us. The song seemed slightly different from the one that Jay McGowan attached to his ebird checklist from last weekend. Jay, if you want to hear my cellphone audio, send me your phone number.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Magee Marsh bus trip with the Cornell Lab
Hi Cayuga Birders,

There is still space left on the bus to Magee Marsh with the Spring Field
Ornithology class. Magee is known as "the warbler capital of North America"
and we are likely to see 25-30 species of warblers, plus hordes of other
birds (and birders :))

The bus leaves the morning of Friday, May 11th, and returns on Sunday
evening, May 13th. This year, the schedule will allow 2 mornings on the
boardwalk, doubling the odds of a great migrant show.

See details here:
http://www.birds.cornell.edu/sfo/magee-marsh-trip

Email <sfo_class...> or call 607-254-2165 if you have questions.

Well, the Chipping Sparrows finally made it to Auburn. I had two this morning. I still have American Tree Sparrows and Juncos. For the second time ever I had a Fox Sparrow. I’ve been watching for both birds. I’ve had quite a few Song Sparrows for quite awhile. I also have three male Purple Finches, plus one female that have become regulars at the feeders.
Yesterday, the Osprey from the cell phone tower down the street on rt. 20 flew over. It’s back! I also nearly got run over by a Cooper’s Hawk chasing a grackle. I was out filling the feeders. I don’t think the grackle got caught. I could feel them zoom by.

 Apparently there is a sizeable carcass of something in the middle of
a field on the south side of Kellys Corners Road, maybe 1/4 mile west
of Tunison.  At 1:00 pm this afternoon, a vulture was feeding on it
and an adult Bald Eagle was standing 3-4 feet away, watching.  The
instantaneous impression was that somehow the vulture had intimidated
the eagle although surely the eagle already had eaten its fill and was
permitting the vulture to have at it.  But why did the eagle stick
around to watch?!

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Phenomenal feeder and lawns
Yesterday I drove around a bit and saw several flocks of flickers, starting with 5 in our front yard. At the end Karen and I saw 21 flickers in one mowed lawn. (I don’t even want to report such an implausible number, but we did.)

Today at our feeders:
Newly noted female Pileated (to go along with the fore-mentioned male)
(If your spouse gets excited and waves a hand at the newly arrived female Pileated so that it fleas away despite warning not to move, is this justification for spousal abuse?)
And the other woodpeckers also
1 Fox Sparrow
1 Chipping
1 Field
2 Song
3 White-throats
8 Tree
~15 Siskin
~20 goldfinch
~25 juncos
2 Purple Finch (House Finch yesterday)
Pine Warbler trying to feed at the turret of a black oil sunflower feeder.
(I scraped some mealworms out of our constant culture and put them on a tray for the warbler, but I didn’t see the warbler come down to the tray.)
1 accipiter passing through
1 turkey hen
6 deer

I do sit at the windows with binocs in hand quite a lot.

I don’t think it is good for the birds, especially the Pine Warbler, but I still can enjoy it.

Hi Larry and all,

Fox Sparrows are just peaking now out here in the hills around West Danby. This morning they seems to be everywhere, and easy to spot because the world is white again (groan).

I was just watching a couple of Hermit Thrushes eating sumac berries.

Good morning all- I'm interested in tracking down the original spotter for the Western meadowlark on Armitage Rd. I'm curious as to how it was identified initially and how it was determined it was Western vs Eastern. What a neat sighting for our neck of the woods.

Has anyone seen/heard it in the last 24 hours?

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] S. Danby Barred Owl concert
What a thrill tonight to hear as many as 5 different Barred Owls counter
calling. They were so loud that I heard them from inside, and when I went
out on the deck to listen, one was very close. I called to it, but I think
that made it fly further away. I could hear them calling from at least 4
different directions.

After a few minutes another voice, higher pitched, with the same rhythm but
no final descending trill, joined in. It sounded almost like a dog or
coyote barking, but it was from treetop height.

They continued for about ten minutes and either moved off or stopped
calling. This is the first time since Spring Field Ornithology's' visit to
Laura's and Ton's back in maybe 2004, that I have heard any Barred Owls!

Made my day, er, night!!

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Glossy Ibis Broome County Upper Lisle County Park
This morning Dan Watkins and Rich Youket found a GLOSSY IBIS at Upper Lisle
County Park down the truck road next to a red gate that has a STOP sign on
it. The bird likes to forage there and often will take off but keeps coming
back to the same spot. This is a rare bird for Broome as we get this
species maybe once every 2-5 years. Last night's strong south winds likely
dropped him down. With chilly weather and northwest winds, we hope he
sticks around a couple days. The bird is in beautiful breeding plumage.

Best way to get there is to cross a rusty bridge from Rte 26 Town of
Triangle and then turn left onto a small dirt road that had a pond on the
right. Drive to the end of this road and by the gate the bird seems to
like.

Exact lat long are; 42.393707° N and 75.966075° W

Wow, thank you all for advising me on the Brown Thrasher, which I believe
it really is. The yellow eye and the wing bars are real clear indicators.
I will try to get another picture of it with a better view of the beak.

OK, I’ll buy that. I didn’t see the expected downcurve until you pointed it out, but the yellow eyes are probably more definitive (and the wing-bars).

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Up the Lake Today
What an amazing day for birding (in spite of the fact that the weather was atrocious)!

Susan, Ann, and I headed out early, intent on being on Armitage Road just after the WESTERN MEADOWLARK woke up. We got to the corner of Rt 89 and Armitage, with just a little speeding, at 8:00 and, as we drove west on Armitage, less than 100 feet along, we heard the bird sing loudly three times. We jumped out of the car - and couldn't find it anywhere. We never heard it again. We ran into Micky Scilingo just up the road. He had seen and heard it earlier in the same area, but that was it.

From there we headed for Carncross Road to look for the RUFF. Viewing was a bit difficult as we were forced to scope into a fierce, cold easterly wind. The reeds and the trees behind us were coated with ice and made a pleasant jingling sound as the wind played with them. We found a few yellowlegs and a small flock of Dunlin, but no ruff. We checked Marten's Tract (the ramp up to the pavilion was iced over, and we could skate down) and the Morgan Road ponds/marshes to no avail. Then we drove out Railroad Road. The marsh is filling in with reeds and should be great rail habitat soon. The big surprise was the 50-odd WILSON'S SNIPE that we flushed as we drove along. There were certainly several times that number farther out in the marsh, but we never even got out of the car.

Someone had the bright idea to check the sometimes-good shorebird habitat at the end of West Shore Trail. That's the dirt road left off of Van Dyne Spoor Road, heading east. We scoped the flooded corn field and found only a few Greater Yellowlegs as well as two Trumpeter Swans, a few Shovelers, Teal, Buffleheads and an Eastern Phoebe. At one point two yellowlegs flew in to just below us, calling loudly. Then another, somewhat similar-sized shorebird flew in, circled several times, and settled briefly near the yellowlegs. As it flew we observed the unique pattern on the upper surface of the tail: a solid black line down the center of the back that tapered out before the tip of the tail, a white "U" on either side of that line out to the tip of the tail. The bird landed facing away from us and we observed the broadly-barred tertials and the large, mottled feathers on its back (not the speckled, black/white pattern of a yellowlegs). We were able to take two photos and, putting it all together, concluded that it was a/the REEVE. The bird then flew back to the north end of the field and was not seen again.

At that point (11:30) we were thoroughly chilled and welcomed the fact that Dave's (now Rose's) in Savannah had hot soup and tea. After lunch we checked Carncross again (no Reeve), Armitage again (no meadowlark) and headed back down the lake to see if we could find the CAVE SWALLOW that had been reported at Salt Point.

There were hundreds of Tree Swallows, dozens of Barn Swallows, ten or so Rough-winged Swallows, and a couple of Bank Swallows foraging in the bay just north of Salt Point. Most of them were stretched out into the lake over the outlet of Salmon Creek. We walked west along the beach to get as close as possible. Shortly after we got there Susan called out "There it is" and, sure enough, the CAVE SWALLOW flew past us - then returned. For the next 15 minutes we stood on the shore as that bird swirled around us, sometimes coming as close as five feet from our heads. It felt that we could have caught it with a butterfly net!

It was already feeling like great day. After all, the drizzle had stopped and the temperature has risen into the high 30's. We made one more stop at east Shore Park where Ken Kemphues had found a SURF SCOTER earlier in the day. It was easy to find, close in, and surrounded by over a dozen horned Grebes. We watched it until a sailboat came by and flushed it towards Stewart Park. What were sailboats doing out there on a day like this??

Never have I seen so many rare/unusual birds on one day, at least around here.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Sapsucker Woods, Sun 4/15
A short but slow walk in the Sapsucker Woods on Sunday (8:00-10:50 AM)
turned out to be one of the better early-spring outings I’ve ever had in
the sanctuary. Here are some highlights, mostly shared with Suan Yong and
two other participants in Suan’s guided walk.



* 11 sparrow species, a probable site record for me, including

-- VESPER SPARROW (one at border of grit and grass along far parking
lot, in the section closest to Highway 13)

-- SAVANNAH SPARROW (two along road north of Kip’s Barn – like Vesper,
uncommon for Sapsucker Woods but probably perennial at this time of April
at these very spots)

-- FOX SPARROW (one heard along utility corridor north of Hoyt-Pileated
Trail, another later confirmed by sight by young Fenya along Wilson North)

-- FIELD SPARROW (with Savannah; also by feeder garden)\

-- plus American Tree, Chipping, Song, Swamp, White-throated, Dark-eyed
Junco, and Eastern Towhee

* WINTER WREN seen and also heard singing partial song by Sherwood Platform
(maybe two different individuals)

* 15+ RUSTY BLACKBIRDS, including a flock of 11 near the feeder garden

* At least one eastern PALM WARBLER seen and heard singing along the
pondside branch of the Wilson Trail North

* Two HERMIT THRUSHES near green pool across trail slightly north of
Sherwood Platform

* One PINE SISKIN seen and possible additional individuals heard around
feeder garden

* One NORTHERN ROUGH-WINGED SWALLOW, presumably continuing from yesterday

* COMMON RAVEN seen flying by and perching briefly atop power pole in
Fuller Wetlands; also confirmed by sound

* A pair of BLUE-WINGED TEAL flying over the pond and departing to the
north, plus the continuing female REDHEAD and at least a couple of pairs of
WOOD DUCKS

* Six GREAT BLUE HERONS wheeling slowly around together and descending to
the trees around the main pond

* An OSPREY catching and deliberately consuming a fish

* An AMERICAN KESTREL by Kip’s Barn



We also enjoyed watching many active and cooperative birds of the most
expected species, including kinglets, Yellow-rumped Warblers, flickers,
sapsuckers, and others, as well as a mink and a muskrat.

Subject: Re: [cayugabirds-l] Fwd: Tagged Great Egret
Frank (29X) was with 7 other Great Egrets close together near the observation tower at Tschache Pool in Montezuma NWR this afternoon about 2:15pm, the only egrets my party saw in our quick tour of the refuge. Only 1 of the egrets, not Frank, was actively foraging. The temperature was in the low 40s Fahrenheit and there was a brisk NW wind. People on the observation tower were cold. The egrets looked a bit cold, too, but they were partially sheltered by nearby cattail marsh. Great Blue Herons were much more active, flying over the pool, or scattered about to feed. There was no ice nor snow here, and the expansive pool has plenty of water available for foraging.

It’s cool to learn where “our” Great Egrets breed. We only see a few at a time and briefly in early April, but in late summer we accumulate scores of them.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Osprey egg laying
​Cindy,

It's probable that the Treman State Marine Park nest does have eggs.

The evidence Is that there will be an adult incubating at all times. The
female will do most of the incubating, but the male should give her breaks
a few times a day.

The ospreys at Treman (nicknamed Treman & Marina) are probably about 10
years old now. Older (>10 yrs.), highly experienced pairs can lay their
eggs earlier than younger ones, and now that they are almost 10yrs old,
it's possible that Marina laid as early as 7-10 days after her arrival. It
all depends on how rapidly her ovaries matured. Two weeks is the norm for
most established nests. Younger pairs with little or no nest usually take
longer to court and build, and may wait 10–20+ days before laying.

Ophelia at Salt Point is not on eggs yet and Orpheus was still sky dancing
for her today. It should be any day.

Eyes to the sky!
Candace

Subject: Re: [cayugabirds-l] Update on Weather and front
Well, the front set up farther north than expected and so did the heavier precipitation today. So we had a shallow front across central NY today. The surface front was in far northern PA and the front at 5000 feet (roughly) was actually across Lake Ontario. So north of this in Canada was the main precipitation shield and hence no fallout conditions down here. Central NY saw chilly conditions with northerly winds between the surface and a few thousand feet with southwest to west winds above this. Overnight many birds were migrating north so presumably birds that migrate higher than a few thousand feet up kept going into southern Canada on the southwest winds and stopped where the rain was. In reality the bird migration likely was sorted out based on how high each species or even individuals migrate. To get a fallout we need a solid batch of precipitation which typically has cloud tops around 10 to 20 feet which is a wall for the migrants. Since this precipitation set up farther north than predicted is why it wasn't that impressive. However, winds between 5000 and 15000 feet were strong from the west-southwest and maybe this could be why the western meadowlark showed up?  It is also interesting that in western NY the front was a bit deeper and could explain why Jody saw more migrants. Anyway, always learning. 
Tonight we will see south winds aloft, north winds close to the ground. Precipitation again will be across northern NY. More arrivals will be the norm. I think once the cold front comes through Monday with heavier rain we will see more migrants. 
Thanks and good birding to all! Dave 
On Friday, April 13, 2018, 7:33:30 AM EDT, David Nicosia <daven102468...> wrote:

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.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Migration -- but outside Cayuga Basin
Today, I was doing some survey work out in Steuben County. The weather was
not great. Clouds, patchy fog, steady winds out of the east or northeast
all day. Still, around mid-day, magic happened. Visible migration
happened in a big way. Literally thousands of American Robins swept in,
low and fast, and landed everywhere. Many other birds, too. Song Sparrows
by the hundreds, many Savannah Sparrows, double-digit Vesper Sparrows,
Chipping Sparrows, even many more Dark-eyed Juncos than I've seen there all
winter and spring. Bunches of Towhees. Flocks of Flickers. A couple
dozen Golden-crowned Kinglets. A single Barn Swallow. In one bush, I saw
4 Song Sparrows, 3 female Brown-headed Cowbirds, 5 American Robins, 3
Northern Flickers, 2 Eastern Towhees, 4 Golden-crowned Kinglets, and 6
Juncos. It was a small bush, and there were multiple birds on every
branch. Oh, and I heard or saw more than 20 Yellow-breasted Sapsuckers
today whereas a week ago there were none. Saw a bunch of Northern Harriers
today, too. Not sure if it could be called a classic fall-out, but it was
fun.

Checking for new arrivals, but currently ONLY 8 Pine Siskins. Don't know if

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Sapsucker Woods this morning
Ken Kemphues and I led a bird walk around the Wilson Trail this morning at
Sapsucker Woods that included several first-of-year birds for us. A
NORTHERN ROUGH-WINGED SWALLOW was circling low over the pond to give us
good looks- the only swallow we saw on our walk.

Over by the Sherwood platform, two EASTERN TOWHEES foraged next to the
path. Seconds later a PALM WARBLER appeared above us, tail-pumping, as it
flew among the tree branches.
We also found several yellow-rumped warblers and two PINE WARBLERS. We were
able to watch one of them singing its trilling song.

Two FOX SPARROWS and three HERMIT THRUSHES appeared as we rounded the trail
after the Harper bench, and three YELLOW-BELLIED SAPSUCKERS chased each
other through the trees, with squeaky vocalizations. We spotted both
GOLDEN-CROWNED and RUBY-CROWNED KINGLETS and could see the colorful crowns
of each.

Turned out that this foggy spring morning was a great time to be out.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Great morning chorus including sapsucker
Karen and I were awakened at about 6:00 by a sapsucker drumming outside our bedroom.

When I first walked out to feed the birds, my most important morning activity, I heard two Pileated Woodpeckers apparently calling to each other within 50 m of our house. There have been two flying and calling on our property for the last two weeks. The young male (dark brown [not black] primaries and wing coverts) has been calling and drumming and feeding at our feeder for a month (the first Pileated at our feeder in years).

Yesterday I heard and saw a male and female Red-bellied Woodpecker drumming simultaneously about 5 ft. apart at the top of an aspen. First I had ever heard them drumming together. They had excavated a hole in this tree last year. It broke at that point and the top fell into our yard and across a saw-whet banding line. Bob McGuire kindly chain-sawed the debris.

Hairy and downy at the feeder, and a pair of red-bellied and now pileated and sapsuckers in the yard. Wonderful.

Dwindling numbers of quite vocal goldfinch and siskin and junco and Purple Finch. The Fox Sparrow that was singing yesterday may have left last night. Tree Sparrows and more calling.

Just wanted to share a delightful morning.

Besides, in the last two days I have confirmed two Merlin nests, monitored incubation at a third, and found the general location of another.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] New arrivals
As I pulled out of my garage, I spotted a Pine Warbler on my driveway right
next to my car! It foraged in the gravel for a few more seconds and then
flew up into the pines. I'm guessing it was a new arrival that was too
hungry to be concerned about my moving car right next to it! A Chipping
Sparrow was a new arrival in my yard this morning as well.

I went to Goetchius Preserve in Caroline mid-morning where I found a
Solitary Sandpiper, a Wilson's Snipe, and a Savannah Sparrow, along with a
Barn Swallow and a Rough-winged mixed in with lots of Tree Swallows.

Subject: RE: [cayugabirds-l] Bald Eagle - Interlaken
I know of two Bald Eagle nests in the Interlaken area. Both are on private property. There could be more.

For the last several years, there has been an active nest on Powell Rd, across the road from our house. It's in the woods at the back of a large field. It's not very visible this time of the year when no leaves are on the trees, and essentially not viewable from the road during the summer. One and possibly two young fledged from that nest last year.

We've seen reduced activity at that nest and in the general area this year leading up to breeding season. About a month ago, we noticed a large nest on the south side of Hickok Rd. and later confirmed seeing adults at that nest. The owners of that property have been seeing the eagles regularly coming from and going to the nest. It appears that nest is the active one this year. Though we have occasionally seen adult eagles along Powell Rd, we haven't seen activity at the nest.

The two nest locations are probably less than 1 mile apart, as the eagle flies.

Is this the same pair starting a new nest? Did one of the original pair die and the remaining one got a new mate and they started a new nest? It would be interesting to know or at least hear others' opinions.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] CBC Trip to Dryden Lake
On April 8th 3 excellent birders joined me to bird Dryden Lake. The weather
started out calm and cold, changing to blustery and snowy. On the lake we
saw American Wigeon, Mallards, Black Ducks, about 30 Ring-necked Ducks,
Gadwall, Hooded Mergansers displaying, Common Mergansers, one Red-breasted
Merganser, Pied-billed and one Horned Grebe, many Double-crested Cormorants
and a number of Great Blue Herons. As we walked the trail we saw a number
of Golden-crowned Kinglets and two Eastern Phoebes who didn't look happy to
be there! I pointed out the Bald Eagle's nest with an occupant. The other
Eagle was sitting in a tree eating a fish. There were also two Osprey
flying about. Towards the end of the path we counted at least three Swamp
Sparrows and had a great look at one perched on a stalk. In total we saw
thirty-two species which wasn't bad for a snowy, cold day.

On the way back to our cars, we ran into an SFO trip and shared the
location of the eagle's nest. That was fun.

It was only a little after 10 when our trip was over, so we all went to the
local diner for breakfast and lots of warm coffee. The was a good day!!

Very pretty and good views, although I’d guess they are unlikely to stay long. A regular parade of Hooded Mergansers, Bufflehead, Wood Ducks and of course Mallards have been there on various days over last week. Two Belted Kingfishers continue also.

I have seen no Tree Swallows out here, but may not have been looking at the right time of day.

Along Ed Hill Road going S from Hile School Rd were three Kestrels spread out along the wires, near last year’s nest site. Maybe a juvenile still hanging from last year?

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Larue St. Clair
Our beloved *Larue St. Clair*, 92, has been in & out of the Auburn
hospital the last three months.

He is now at this health care center: *North Brook Heights    170 Murray
St.     Auburn, NY 13021*

He is filled with memories of visitors, friends _/& feathers/_ at
MNWR.   What a life saver learning about birds was to him after (&
since) his wife died about 25 yrs. ago. John & I met him shortly after
her death when he showed us our first Tundra swan at Long Point. He was
just out riding around to ease his grief & loneliness.

Larue & cheery volunteer, Jackie Bakker, worked well together tallying
their findings. He knows those days are over for him but he has a keen
appreciation of/for the interaction over the years between himself,
visitors at the refuge & other birders, young & old.

I, personally, am extremely pleased that he lived to see the Lagoon
named for him. How much better to let someone know while they're alive
that they are loved & appreciated. For sure they won't know when they're
gone. Many people saw birds, even life birds, they wouldn't have if he
hadn't made the lists & posted them for visitors to see.

His sightings & permanent record keeping, aided in the past (??) yrs. by
having Jackie to do the driving (& safekeeping) are invaluable
contributions to the Refuge. We birders all owe both of them a lot, but
especially do we need to give much credit & thanks to Larue.

Even if you didn't know him personally, I'm sure he would appreciate
getting not get well cards but note cards of cheer, love & appreciation
from birders.

For those who do know him, he probably would be cheered if you went a
few miles out of your way & visited with him a few minutes. "Homes" are
lonely places.

Thank you for loving him as we do.  Fritzie (in Union Springs)

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Addendum to Lake Trip report... Pipit, Wood Ducks
I neglected to mention an AMERICAN PIPIT on the spit at Myers Point
and a pair of WOOD DUCKS in the Mill Pond in Union Springs. That
pheasant was off 34B N of Lansing Station Rd (thanks, Donna), and
Donna Scott tells me she's been seeing small groups of them there for months.

\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\

Birded up the East side of Cayuga Lake to Montezuma with Lynn Leopold
today. Lovely, despite the cold and occasional snow squalls!
Highlights included many RED-BREASTED MERGANSERS on the lake and lots
of GREEN-WINGED TEAL (no European) and NORTHERN SHOVELERS at
Montezuma and Carncross Road. There were several GREATER YELLOWLEGS
at LaRue's Lagoon along the Wildlife Drive and 10+ at Carncross Road.
Quite a few COMMON LOONS on the lake, as well. Most gorgeous bird of
the day was a breeding-plumage HORNED GREBE close-in at Ladoga, among
other Horned Grebes and one Pied-billed Grebe. Also at Montezuma were
A. Wigeon, Gadwall, Ring-necked Duck, Blue-winged Teal, Mallard,
Hooded Merganser, Bufflehead, and two N. Pintail. Redhead at the Mill
Pond in Union Springs and the Factory St. Pond, and Lesser Scaup
along the way. Common Mergansers at Myers Point. At Salt Point,
50-60 CEDAR WAXWINGS were living up to their names by devouring the
Cedar berries.

Most surprising bird was a male RING-NECKED PHEASANT that crossed
Route 90 about half a mile North of Lansing Station Road!

Still waiting for spring,
Sandy Podulka

Plastic saucers called nesting dishes are used extensively by utility companies throughout Florida to attract ospreys and eagles. Now, the National Grid is using them in Central NY. Unfortunately, the installers of the new nest dish off Rt. 89 at the Oak Orchard Campground does not appear to be seeded. It will be a hard beginning to the mating season to have to rebuild your nest from scratch without the stimuli of the seeded twigs. 



I don't care for these nesting dishes for several reasons. I don't think the dishes have enough drainage holes for severe rains storms. They also do not provide a perch from which the adults keep guard of the nest. With no real sides, these dishes do not prevent nest from blowing off the platform.​​​Eyes to the Sky,Canace​

Hi Carol,



I'm told this is a National Grid "nest", not NYSEG, and that the disk is specifically made for eagles/ospreys. It might even be made out of fiberglass (rather than metal), as it is a commercial product popular with the southern utility companies who have LOTS of Ospreys.



That's all I know about it right now. But, I would be interested in any reports on whether or not it is accepted and successful.



Best,

Robyn Bailey

Yesterday on Friday afternoon I spotted a pair of Common Loons at Myers
Point. In addition there was one Osprey in a nearby tree adjacent to the
Osprey platform at Myers Point. Earlier in the week I saw one Osprey on the
platform on Lake Rd. just south of Long Point State Park near Aurora.
Closer to Aurora on Lake Rd. there was a raft of approximately 25
Buffleheads hugging the shoreline.

I am leading a trip to Dryden Lake Sunday, April 8th from 7:00 to 11:00. We will meet at the far parking lot at the Lab of Ornithology. It should be a fun trip looking at ducks, Bald Eagles, different Sparrows, and who knows what else. It will be cold, 20’s to 33’s, so dress warmly with good walking shoes or boots. Bring a scope if you have one. My contact information is 607-230-8448 or <annmitchell13...> if you have any questions. See you then.

I also didn't mention my trip to Lindsay Parsons yesterday which yielded
about a dozen Tree Swallows, Ring-necked Duck, Pied-billed Grebe, Osprey,
Yellow-shafted Flicker, Great Blue Heron, American Tree Swallow and
(awesome!) a Brown Thrasher. https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S44270569

Good birding.

Yesterday, a Pine Warbler was among the GOFI and Siskins at my feeders.
While walking my dog, I noticed a Brown Creeper and we received some verbal
harassment from a Belted Kingfisher. I also heard some Winter Wrens close
by and got the bins on them to watch them singing away in preparation for
the storm today.

Today, 54 GOFI and 22 Siskins as well as an American Kestrel foraging
across the street. There are the usual woodpeckers (Red-bellied, Hairy,
Downy) but not as much Junco movement as the past few days have had.
Probably the overwhelming GOFI numbers.

Lots of activity here in South Danby this morning: scads of GOFI, quite a
few Pine Siskins, juncos, various woodpeckers including our regular female
Pileated, a few Robins calling, Mourning Doves, and Bluejays, one imitating
a Red-shouldered Hawk.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] And more finches
I got a notice that this previously failed the fraud test. I'm not sure it went out. Sorry if this is a duplicate.


Hi Laura,


I'm so glad you had a good finch morning. About 5 miles to the southeast, we, too, had an abundance of finches. I tried to count the goldfinch by fives and got to ~135. We had 2 Pine Siskin that I noted. One and probably two Fox Sparrow sang as I fed the birds. Plus, one Purple Finch and two Song Sparrow and about a dozen juncos and 4-5 Tree Sparrow at the feeders.


We have a pair of Red-bellied W. coming in to our suet and recently a Pileated has been drummiong and coming to the suet. We hope he succeeds in attracting a mate.


It doesn't feel like spring, bu it sounds like spring.

At around 8:00 this morning (Friday), there was a flock of about 50 wild turkeys in the fields behind 184 Mott Road, including probably half a dozen males.  Three of them, separated from the main flock and closer to the road, were parading in full tails-spread glory before the same single female.  She seemed unimpressed, but I pulled over and took a moment to admire them :-)

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] RTHA on HEB
Just saw a RTHA on top of Human Ecology Building on Cornell campus, peering
down into the courtyard between HEB and MVR, then it flew down a bit,
thought better of it, flew confusedly back into south side of building
window glass but not at any speed, floundered a bit, but landed back on top
of building roof. Last week we saw a fox searching the courtyard during
late afternoon, possibly a nursing mom, so there must be a rodent
population; let's hope it's healthy and not fed rodenticide!

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Van tours with Montezuma Audubon Staff!
Good snowy morning!

Here at the Montezuma Audubon Center in Savannah, we accumulated a quick couple of fluffy inches of lake affect snow. Despite that, the birds are active. I counted 8 great blue herons on my drive in this morning, all flying over Tschache Pool on Route 89 at Montezuma National Wildlife Refuge. On East Road, I pulled in for a quick listen at the Knox Marcellus Marsh, also at MNWR. I could barely see the marsh down below, but could hear ducks moving around. Finally, arriving at the MAC, as I was shoveling the sidewalk, an adult bald eagle flew overhead during a brief break in the snow fall.

Below are a list of a few upcoming van tours that I'm offering this spring! I've also included a link to all of our upcoming spring programming.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Covert Osprey
Today about 1pm there was an osprey perched on a pole along rt 96 just south of the hamlet of Covert, Seneca County and a mile or two north of Trumansburg. This is right next to the cell tower that was put up last year on the east side of the road. The tower looks like it has a nest at the top of it.

Subject: Re: [cayugabirds-l] Cedar Waxwings!
I had a flock of 40 or more last week all afternoon and spent some
time looking at them since they are such cool birds.  Oddly, not one
had even a drop of red "wax" on its wings.  I know juveniles don't
always show the red, so maybe the juvies flock up as a group and that
was what these were, but still no red whatsoever was surprising.  Did
you happen to notice if your birds had waxed wings?

Big flock, 60-70 or more zooming around from tree to tree in my
Lansing Station rd yard. Visiting several cedar trees & nibbling on
berries that are left from last fall's voluminous crop.
I almost didn't look too closely because at first I thought they
were Starlings.

A bit disappointed that I hadn’t been hearing any Fox Sparrows around home, I walked down through the shrubby bands of 40 year old spruces near my border with the Lindsay-Parsons Preserve, and found two there, silently rummaging in the fallen leaves and needles. I got kind of wet for my trouble, but now I’m back in my shop, drying by the wood fire and picking off the ticks!

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Cayuga Lake Osprey Trail
Since Dave Nutter referenced this the other day, I just wanted to remind
everyone about the interactive map I created a few years ago with Candace
Cornell. The URL changed since the original version so please update any
bookmark you might have had. Here's the handy, shortened URL:
http://tinyurl.com/CLospreys

Still a work in progress, as more platforms are put in place and discovered.

As Candace says: "Eyes to the skies". It was great to see a few this
evening that had recently returned to Salt Point.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Cayuga Bird Club April 9 meeting
The Cayuga Bird Club will be holding their April meeting on Monday, April 9 at 7:30 pm with cookies & conversation at 7:15. Our speaker, Paul Guris, founder of See Life Paulagics, Pelagic Birding Tours, will present "Pelagic Discoveries: Birding the Mid-Atlantic and New York Waters. Over the years, See Life's trips have turned up a number of pelagic discoveries including rarities, high counts, identification tips, habitat requirements, and behavioral traits. This program will explore a range of these discoveries in the Mid-Atlantic, particularly in the New York area. Examples include rarities like Western Gull and Fea's Petrel. Birds like Band-rumped Storm-Petrels, once considered to be incredibly rare in our area, turn out to be regular and even expected in the right areas at the right time of year. Dovekies have a highly specialized requirement for feeding that makes them generally easy to find.

Don't expect a dry, data-driven presentation, do expect a lot of photos, and do expect a fair share of not-so-serious moments.Paul Guris has been birding since age 12, which is longer ago than he cares to admit. His first boat trip on salt water was in his mother's third trimester. He has traveled the nation and several countries in Central America and Europe seeking out landbirds, but the pelagic species always call him back. He has served on both Pennsylvania and New Jersey's rare bird records committees, captained the multi-year NJ Audubon World Series of Birding winning team, the Nikon/DVOC Lagerhead Shrikes, and served a variety of positions, including president of the over 125-year-old Delaware Valley Ornithological Club.Paul organized pelagic trips out of New Jersey as far back as the mid-1980s and he has led for several other tour companies. In 2002, Paul and his wife Anita started their own pelagic tour company called See Life Paulagics to provide greater opportunities in the Mid-Atlantic region. They run trips sailing out of New York, New Jersey, Delaware, and occasionally other places. The thrill of discovery and a love of the sea keep the excitement going even after all these years.Cayuga Bird Club meetings start at 7:30 pm, the second Monday of every month. Doors open at 7:00 pm and all meetings are open to the public. Seating is limited; if room capacity is reached, the building will be locked, so come early!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Club members are invited to join Paul and his wife for dinner at the Taste of Thai Express restaurant on Rt. 13 N. at 5:30 pm before the meeting. Please rsvp to <clr82...> by Monday noon so we can place our reservation.Looking forward to seeing you all at the meeting on Monday.

Subject: Re: [cayugabirds-l] Ithaca Ospreys, and other stuff
Walking with Barbara Bauer in Cass Park today between 1 and 2:15 we saw
three ospreys flying near the platform that is in what I think is Union
Field. Two of them seemed to be interacting, possibly aggressively; one
would land on a light, and the other would fly over and land there and the
first would fly away. This happened repeatedly. The third one didn't seem
to engage in this behavior, but flew around the area while this happened,
occasionally landing on the nest. We continued on to Hogs Hole, and there
was one osprey on that nest. I can't be sure that it wasn't one of the
ones we saw at Union Field, though we didn't see it fly overhead while we
were walking there. Marsha Kardon

Yes on the nest at Dryden lake. I've been taking pix of their nest building over the past few weeks. One is banded on both legs, one blue band and one silver band. It's a pretty small nest, in the pine trees.

I have to correct my email from yesterday. The pair at Cargill have been at the nest since March 31.

I saw an osprey sitting on the Church Hill nest in Lansing for a few minutes today, but it flew and didn't return. Orpheus and Ophelia at Salt Point are working on their nest, but also adding a few sticks to the unclaimed Salmon Creek nest. They can't help themselves, they are compulsive nest builders.

Migrants included a flock of 14 Great Blue Herons, a few small flocks of Canada Geese (<100 birds in 3 hours), lots of small flocks of Common Grackles and a few flocks of Red-winged Blackbirds (in addition to a near-constant background of scattered northbound Icterids), American Robins singly or in small flocks, small flocks of roaming Horned Larks with 3 probable American Pipits near or among them.

Migrant raptors were few: a couple Turkey Vultures, a couple Red-tailed Hawks, at least one Coopers Hawk, and a Northern Harrier. Among the best was a northbound OSPREY (year bird for me!) passing to the west of us. Perhaps it was bound for some nest in the basin, but evidently not down in Ithaca.

When I got home, I decided to heed Candaces call to keep track of Osprey nests. I took a quick bike ride around Cass Park combined with a walk around Treman Marina. In short order I saw one Osprey flying south past the Childrens Garden hunting over Cayuga Inlet, even though the water was muddy and a racing crew meet was underway.

I continued north on the Cayuga Waterfront Trail. No Ospreys were perched at or near the Union Field nest, nor the Hogs Hole nest platform, nor the Newman Golf Course nest platform.

But the Treman Marina nest (#59 on the Osprey Trail) had one Osprey on the nest and a second Osprey on one of the attached perches. They stayed there during the time I walked the path around the field. I also saw 3 Tree Swallows over the field, two of which perched atop nest boxes for awhile. The south end of the lake is muddy from yesterdays rain, so waterbirds were few. A Double-crested Cormorant on the snag in the lake east of the White Lighthouse appeared to be too dark and too high out of the water to be the injured immature who overwintered.

When I got back to the Parks office by the mouth of the marina, I heard an Osprey call: it was hunting over the marina. I looked back at the Treman Marina platform, and it was empty. A little later I saw an Osprey apparently over Fall Creek near Renwick Wildwood. As I passed Union Fields, I saw an Osprey overhead near the Inlet, but not associated with that nest.

So, I saw at least 2 Ospreys, and they acted liked they owned a nest. As for all the single-bird-in-flight sightings, I dont know whether they mean there were 4 Ospreys, or whether all my observations simply demonstrate that I cannot keep track of one large easy-to-ID bird. Regardless, I am confident that Ithaca again has Ospreys.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Osprey Talk Wed. April 4, 7pm
The public is welcome to attend my talk on ospreys this Wednesday, April 4,
at 7 pm. in the auditorium at Kendal. I'll concentrate on the basic life
histories of ospreys in the Cayuga Basin and at Lansing's Salt Point. I've
collected beautiful photographs so it should be visually entertaining.

The ospreys are back!

Eyes to the sky!
Candace

Please email me with all reports of osprey nests you see in the Finger
Lakes and across NY, which are not on the Cayuga Lake Osprey Trail
<https://ft.maps.arcgis.com/apps/MapJournal/index.html?appid=fb09815967204bfc9386fe2d4d78f1b0>.
Please include the location and/or GPS coordinates. The information we
obtain is used to help protect and conserve ospreys, our primary
bio-indicators of our water quality and the health of the environment.
Thank you for helping in our osprey surveying efforts.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] what a difference...
...a day makes!

Yesterday (Sunday) I too went up the lake and thru Montezuma's Wildlife Drive and Tschache Pool areas, areas Laura Stenzler described Saturday.
I saw no Canvasbacks in the main pool, although maybe I missed a few way across, and not too many waterfowl anywhere,
and Tschache pool was no longer "wall to wall" ducks! I guess they all moved on north?

Still, it was wonderful seeing the many bird species I did see and I ended at East Rd./Knox Marcellus for a quick look before I had to head home at 3 PM. One swan and 2-3 real Snow Geese at K-M.

I say "real Snow Geese" because across from the Potatoes building on Rt. 31 I saw a lot of "Tyvek" Snow Geese decoys arrayed in a field and later saw a similar array of the puffy, blowing-around fake geese off the Rt. 326 shortcut from Rt. 90 to Rt. 34B. I don't know if the special goose hunting season is still on or not.

This morning as I filled bird feeders here on Lansing Station Rd by Cay. L., I heard 2 Common Loons calling loudly and seemingly-joyously to each other!

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Phoebes, Bonaparte’s Gulls, Grebes (Horned, Eared, & Pied-billed), Cormorants
None of these birds are new for the basin, but still there seems to have been an influx.

This afternoon I biked to Stewart Park on the Cayuga Waterfront Trail. At the west end of the suspension bridge between the end of Pier Rd and Renwick Wildwood I saw an Eastern Phoebe. I was pleased but not surprised. I think they nest under that end of that bridge. It flew across to Renwick which is also a classic place to find an early Phoebe in the trees along Fall Creek. I continued and saw 2 more Phoebes crossing Fall Creek back and forth between Stewart Park and Jetty Woods. I had to think about whether the 3 sightings could have been 1 bird, but I concluded not. When I left Stewart Park I went back to Renwick and walked the Fall Creek trail from the boardwalk to the railroad bridge. Near the boardwalk I saw six different Phoebes at once in the trees at various heights. I think they were finding small insects on the flowers of the maple trees. Farther upstream near the Fuertes concrete arch, I saw another Phoebe low in the brush beside the trail. I also went out to Jetty Woods and saw a Phoebe low in a pine tree nearby on Newman Golf Course. I figure I saw 10 Eastern Phoebes total, most were not near obvious nest sites, and none were vocal. It sure seemed like a wave of migration.

A Bonaparte’s Gull was first reported by Kevin McGowan on Dryden Lake on 30 March. Today, 1 April, was my first encounter: several were flying low over the mud bar just offshore of Stewart Park and apparently picking minute food items from the water. One rested among the Herring & Ring-billed Gulls on the mud bar, and several rested on the lake. I later walked out to the White Lighthouse where I tallied my maximum: 17, mostly resting on the lake. Only one that I saw was in breeding plumage, 1 was in transition, 1 was an immature, and the rest were winter plumage adults.

While scanning from the White Lighthouse I noticed first one, then several Horned Grebes in breeding plumage to the west of the Red Lighthouse breakwater. I kept scanning while trying to stay in the lee of the White Lighthouse. Mainly from the Red Lighthouse breakwater to beyond the piling cluster I tallied 33 Horned Grebes, only 2 of which were in winter plumage. The rest were in breeding plumage. I also had a crappy look far to the north among the Horned Grebes of 1 similar sized (small) breeding plumage grebe whose neck was black and back was reddish and I think must have been an Eared Grebe. I recommend looking under conditions which are less windy to reduce scope vibration and waves in the way. Also be prepared to bluff your way past 4 pairs of territorial Canada Geese. There were also 2 Pied-billed Grebes much closer to the east of the White Lighthouse. I don’t know whether these were the same birds which I had seen earlier in and near Fall Creek.

The number of Double-crested Cormorants has grown to at least 16 on & near the snag in the lake to the east of the White Lighthouse Jetty.

I also saw my first-of-year Field Sparrow beside Pier Rd with some Juncos & Song Sparrows (many of which have arrived lately) alongside the weedy, leaf-strewn fenceline of the DPW storage area next to the piles of wood chips.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Golden-crowned Kinglet
Having moved to a new house in the woods, a distance from the road, I hung
feeders up a few weeks ago. Birds have been gradually discovering them. I
saw this Kinglet today and my notes tell me I saw one at my old house, a
few miles up the road, on this very same day (April 1) in 2007.

Thank you Dave and Cindy to everyone for reporting yesterday's arrival of the ospreys. We should see most ospreys returning to their nests in the next two weeks. Unmated adult birds will also be checking out vacant nest boxes and vying for mates. Young osprey, hoping to breed, usually arrive a week or so after the adult wave, many acting like intruders and pestering nesting pairs.
So far Olive and Olin have returned to their McGovern Fields, Ophelia and Orpheus to Salt Point, the Treman Marine Park pair are on the nest, as well as the Union Fields ospreys. I have not seen the Cargil pair yet, but the always arrive at least a day before the Salt Point ospreys and are probably here.
Keep you eyes on the vacant nest platforms at Dryden Lake, Taughannock Park, and in Ithaca (the suspension bridge nest in Stewart Park, Hog's Hole, Newman Golf Course, and Cherry St.).  Around Lansing, there are vacant platforms at Millikan Station, Salmon Creek at Salt Point, Church Hill, and two on Portland Point. At least a few of these will be utilized this year.
Keep your eyes to the sky and please keep reporting any ospreys you see nesting!
Many thanks,Candace

Thank you Dave and Cindy to everyone for reporting yesterday's arrival of the ospreys. We should see most ospreys returning to their nests in the next two weeks. Unmated adult birds will also be checking out vacant nest boxes and vying for mates. Young osprey, hoping to breed, usually arrive a week or so after the adult wave, many acting like intruders and pestering nesting pairs.
So far Olive and Olin have returned to their McGovern Fields, Ophelia and Orpheus to Salt Point, the Treman Marine Park pair are on the nest, as well as the Union Fields ospreys. I have not seen the Cargil pair yet, but the always arrive at least a day before the Salt Point ospreys and are probably here.
Keep you eyes on the vacant nest platforms at Dryden Lake, Taughannock Park, and in Ithaca (the suspension bridge nest in Stewart Park, Hog's Hole, Newman Golf Course, and Cherry St.).  Around Lansing, there are vacant platforms at Millikan Station, Salmon Creek at Salt Point, Church Hill, and two on Portland Point. At least a few of these will be utilized this year.
Keep your eyes to the sky and please keep reporting any ospreys you see nesting!

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Up the lake: Dryden to MNWR
Hi all,

Ton and I drove north from Dryden to Montezuma NWR today to see what was around. We started at home on Hunt Hill Rd and our first stop after that was Sapsucker Woods. There we found one WOODDUCK, one PIED BILLED GREBE, one SWAMP SPARROW and several BLUE BIRDS among the regulars (redwinged BB, mallard, grackle, song sparrow, robin, starling, Canada goose, crow, goldfinch, red tailed hawk). From there we birded around Stewart Park, which had quite a nice variety of birds. We saw RING-BILLED and HERRING GULLS, 1 DOUBLE CRESTED CORMORANT, 1 HOODED MERGANSER, many COMMON MERGANSERS, many BUFFLEHEAD, around 25 RING-NECKED DUCKS, 10 RUDDY DUCKS, GREATER SCAUP, 3 SHOVELERS and 8 GREEN-WINGED TEAL. From there we headed up rte 34 to Myers Point and Ladoga, both of which were pretty empty with the strong south wind pushing against the shore. Along the way we saw TURKEY VULTURES and CAROLINA WREN among other resident birds.



We drove into Long Point State Park where we were happy to hear our first PHOEBE of the year calling. Further along the shore, after leaving the park, we came upon a couple of WIGEON. As we entered the town of Aurora, we enjoyed seeing the BALD EAGLE sitting on his/her nest. From the Aurora boathouse we found 3 HORNED GREBES, one in breeding plumage, 2 COMMON LOONS, also in breeding plumage, about 40 RED-BREASTED MERGANSERS, both male and female with the males doing their neat head dipping display, one SNOW GOOSE and a huge group of 30+ BUFFLEHEAD close to shore. Also, our first TREE SWALLOWS of the day.



Factory Pond in Union Springs had BUFFLEHEAD, GREEN-WINGED TEAL and RING-NECKED DUCK while the county office area further along the shore had one GREAT BLACK-BACKED GULL, our only one of the day. As we left Union Springs we came across our first OSPREY of the day.



Finally we entered Montezuma NWR. The water near the visitor center had many SHOVELER, MALLARDS, GREEN-WINGED TEAL (couldnt find the Eurasian teal), some PINTAL and a pair of BLUE-WINGED TEAL. Lots of Tree Swallows flying over as well. The first part of the wildlife drive was pretty sparse but once we reached the open water, we saw many, many CANVASBACK (mostly along the far side, of course), a good number of REDHEADs, RING-NECKED DUCKS, GREATER SCAUP, one BLUE-WINGED TEAL, about a dozen GADWALL, our first COOTS of the day and many, many GREEN-WINGED TEAL. Further along the wildlife drive, past Benning Marsh and mostly in the new ponds were many, many GADWALL. This seems to be where they hang out rather than in the main pond. We finally started seeing GREAT BLUE HERONS as well. One HARRIER and a KILLDEER before we left the drive and headed to Tschache Pool.



Tschache Pool was simply amazing. From the tower we could see wall to wall ducks. WIGEON, GADWALL, RING-NECKED, SHOVELER, more GREEN-WINGED TEAL than Ive ever seen in one place before, PINTAIL, SCAUP, MALLARDS and many GREAT-BLUE HERONS. We counted 6 BALD EAGLES, many perched on the ground among the grassy hillocks in the swamp.



Between Tschache and the turn off for East Road, we saw 4 more OSPREY. From East Road, we scoped Knox Marcellus Marsh. There was a large group of SNOW GEESE in the fields east of the marsh and many SHOVELER, TEAL, and other ducks in the marsh itself. We actually didnt spend a lot of time looking. We did find two sleeping TRUMPETER SWANS, which raised their heads just long enough for us to identify them.



We then headed toward Carncross Road, hoping to find Sandhill Cranes but we didnt have to go that far, as it turned out. In a field on the northwest side of Van Dyne Spoor Rd were three SANDHILL CRANES, feeding quietly as people in passing cars stopped to look. Carncross was pretty empty (one more TRUMPETER SWAN).



All in all a good day. 62 species Happy Spring!

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Ithaca Ospreys, and other stuff
This morning (31 March) I went to Mount Pleasant, joined by Ann Mitchell and later Gary Kohlenberg. We were all hoping the south wind would bring migrating raptors.

Local birds included singles and pairs of Red-tailed Hawks near & far, an occasional Common Raven (including one who was accompanied/chased for awhile by a Red-tail who mimicked its every move), Turkey Vultures, Killdeer, an Eastern Meadowlark that visited the single tree near the observatory, an American Kestrel hovering over the valley between Mt Pleasant’s twin “peaks”, a possible distant Red-shouldered Hawk, a large Accipiter in deep-flapping display flight far to the south, and American Crows busy flying back and forth and tormenting any Raven they found.

Migrants included a flock of 14 Great Blue Herons, a few small flocks of Canada Geese (<100 birds in 3 hours), lots of small flocks of Common Grackles and a few flocks of Red-winged Blackbirds (in addition to a near-constant background of scattered northbound Icterids), American Robins singly or in small flocks, small flocks of roaming Horned Larks with 3 probable American Pipits near or among them.

Migrant raptors were few: a couple Turkey Vultures, a couple Red-tailed Hawks, at least one Cooper’s Hawk, and a Northern Harrier. Among the best was a northbound OSPREY (year bird for me!) passing to the west of us. Perhaps it was bound for some nest in the basin, but evidently not down in Ithaca.

When I got home, I decided to heed Candace’s call to keep track of Osprey nests. I took a quick bike ride around Cass Park combined with a walk around Treman Marina. In short order I saw one Osprey flying south past the Children’s Garden hunting over Cayuga Inlet, even though the water was muddy and a racing crew meet was underway.

I continued north on the Cayuga Waterfront Trail. No Ospreys were perched at or near the Union Field nest, nor the Hog’s Hole nest platform, nor the Newman Golf Course nest platform.

But the Treman Marina nest (#59 on the Osprey Trail) had one Osprey on the nest and a second Osprey on one of the attached perches. They stayed there during the time I walked the path around the field. I also saw 3 Tree Swallows over the field, two of which perched atop nest boxes for awhile. The south end of the lake is muddy from yesterday’s rain, so waterbirds were few. A Double-crested Cormorant on the snag in the lake east of the White Lighthouse appeared to be too dark and too high out of the water to be the injured immature who overwintered.

When I got back to the Parks office by the mouth of the marina, I heard an Osprey call: it was hunting over the marina. I looked back at the Treman Marina platform, and it was empty. A little later I saw an Osprey apparently over Fall Creek near Renwick Wildwood. As I passed Union Fields, I saw an Osprey overhead near the Inlet, but not associated with that nest.

So, I saw at least 2 Ospreys, and they acted liked they owned a nest. As for all the single-bird-in-flight sightings, I don’t know whether they mean there were 4 Ospreys, or whether all my observations simply demonstrate that I cannot keep track of one large easy-to-ID bird. Regardless, I am confident that Ithaca again has Ospreys.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] They're back! . . .Ospreys!
Cayuga Lake's ospreys are coming home! Two have returned to Osprey Alley
(the stretch between Rts. 90 and 89 at the Montezuma Refuge--MNWR) and the
Union Springs Water Dept.

*Please* send me an email when you first see an osprey at its nests.

Getting accurate arrival dates is important for the Finger Lakes nest
inventory and your help is essential and greatly appreciated, as there are
124 nest sites to monitor!

Ospreys at the top of the lake around MNWR and Union Springs are arriving
now. Ospreys nesting in Lansing and Ithaca will start arriving today and
over the next few days. Keep an eye on the Robert H. Treman State Marine
Park, Union Fields, and Cargill nests. Other pairs will return over the
next week. The Stewart Park pair were early arrivals last year. Male
ospreys typically return a day or so before the females. Both ospreys will
be on the Salt Point nest by April 5. I have no arrival date information
for the nests on the west side of Cayuga. I need your help!

A week or so later, a second wave of unmated, often young, ospreys will
come looking for nesting sites. I'm hoping that some of the new nesting
platforms will be used this year. (It usually takes up to five years for
nest platforms to be claimed.) There are four unused nesting platforms in
Ithaca, five in Lansing, one at Dryden Lake, and one at Taughannock Park.

Thank you for any reports you can send.

Eyes to the sky!
Candace

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Around the Lake Today
Diane, Ken, and I drove around the lake today looking for new arrivals. The rain held off until we were almost home. We did have a few good birds! (Aren’t they all?)

The south end of the lake was surprisingly empty of most water birds. There were only a few gulls and geese off Stewart Park. The Swan Pen was quiet. We heard no peeps from Renwick Woods (no phoebe, winter wren). Likewise, there were only a few gulls off Myers Park.

From the bluff south of Aurora we scoped some 28 White-winged Scoters and over a dozen Horned Grebes (no Eared or Red-necked). Here we had our first new bird of the day - a trio of newly-arrived TREE SWALLOWS. At the Wells College boathouse we got closer looks at the grebes and watched one pair in a brief mating dance (the first I had ever seen from this bird).

We stopped at Frontenac Park in Union Springs to scope the lake, hoping for Bonaparte’s Gulls and Blue-wing Teal (none). Our first OSPREY flew over as we drove north from Union Springs (the second was on a nest along Rts 5 & 20). The north end of the lake around Mud Lock was likewise almost devoid of water birds. A small flock of Ruddy Ducks remained.

The Wildlife Drive remained closed (open this weekend?), but the pond at the Visitor’s Center still hosted numerous Green-winged Teal and the continuing Eurasian GW Teal (good, close looks).

Tschache Pool held numerous ducks, mainly GW Teal, Pintail, Gadwall, and Shovelers. The big surprise there was the large number of Great Blue Herons. We counted at least 25 in the pool and another 25+ on nests in the rookery to the west of the tower. eBird had a problem when we tried to enter “50 Great Blue Herons"!

Knox-Marcellus still holds a lot of water and many ducks, again mainly GW Teal, Pintail, Gadwall and Shovelers. The best bird there was a flyover GREATER YELLOWLEGS, calling only once (“tew-tew-tew”). I know that this “flyover, calling, yet unseen” yellowlegs sounds a bit sketchy (I had the same experience the other day at Myers). But we considered long and hard the alternatives, and nothing else really matched. There were GW Teal giving occasional “peep” calls, but none in the proper 3-note sequence with the pitch falling off slightly through the sequence. I’d still like to SEE one of those guys this year!

We went as far north as Carncross Road & Marten’s Tract, hoping again for shorebirds or Blue-winged Teal (none). We did, however, hear our FOY SWAMP SPARROW singing a slow song from the distant cattails and the single bugling call of a Sand Hill Crane.

On a tip from Dave Kennedy we drove Lake Road south from Cayuga Lake State Park and eventually found the three foraging BLUE-WINGED TEAL just short of Woolfy’s. Again, the lake was almost empty of ducks, and the teal stood out beautifully!

Bird Sounds Decoded Monday, April 2, 2018 7:30pm



Nathan Pieplow, Author, Peterson's Field Guide to Bird Sounds of North
America


Identifying birds by sound is a crucial skill that can be difficult to
learn. Author Nathan Pieplow has devised a system that lets you identify
bird sounds without having to memorize them. The Peterson Field Guide to
Bird Sounds lets you look up sounds, the way you look up words in the
dictionary. The key is learning to visualize sounds. Nathan’s clear,
practical instructions for visualizing sounds will make you a better
listener. You will hear details in sound that you hadn’t noticed before,
and you will have the vocabulary to describe those details. Nathan will
help you identify birds by their sounds, but he will also help you
understand birds by their sounds. For the sounds of birds are a language,
carrying messages from one bird to another. To understand the language, and
decode the messages, all you need is the right dictionary.

might be worth checking the area in the morning if you want to see them.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Yellowlegs
I spent a half hour at Myers this morning, watching the lake and hoping for a flight of Bonaparte’s Gulls. There was a strong southerly breeze, and not much going on. The gull numbers were way down from the past few days, but there was one juvenile Iceland Gull chasing a Herring Gull with a stick in its mouth. All of a sudden I heard a “tew-tew-tew” call, repeated twice, as an unseen GREATER YELLOWLEGS flew over headed north. I looked all around to see if it had landed anywhere. But, apparently, it was just passing through and checking (with its call) to see if there were any mates on the spit. It is only three days early from the mean/median date on Matt Medler’s 2000 - 2009 list so definitely one of the expected birds for this week.
