Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Yellow billed cuckoo
Just seen at 1 pm on fall creek rd just e of Freeville at cook rd. Big as life but looked cold. Dropped wing showed the russet and the 30 mph zone let me have a good look before pulling over. Dropped down in foraging move. Back up and then I lost it. Pretty late I think.
Put in eBird.

According to Pyle and Sibley and the Bird Banding Lab, one can not
safely call a Western on visual. At least two measurements are required.
Plumage and bill characteristics can provide some additional help but
feather wear, age and known geographic variations make such a call iffy
at best without the vocalization.

Always good to check out a possible. Thanks Chris.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] SSW Rusty Blackbirds, etc
Good variety of birds for this morning's SSW bird walk in the weather that
soon turned to sleet. The clumps of ash seeds were hosting flocks of Rusty
Blackbirds and Purple Finches (up to ten within a single binocular view)
along the Wilson Trail north, just south of Owen's Platform. On the pond
among mallards and wood ducks was a Gadwall, a male Hooded Merganser, and a
female Aythya which had a weak wing spur indicative of Ring-Necked Duck --
maybe someone more expert and/or ambitious wants to turn it into a tufted
duck :-). The ducks were in the main pond early, but were flushed to the
Sherwood side.

Subject: Re: [cayugabirds-l] Wood-Pewee Images
Ken certainly found an interesting bird. I assume he heard no
vocalizations or he would have mentioned it. Any pictures from the side
showing wing bars? When I've seen likely easterns and westerns in close
proximity in Central American, it seems that easterns have two fairly
equally weighted wing bars while westerns tend to show one wing bar as
being more prominent. None of these physical cues (amount of dark/light on
lower mandible, or prominence of wing bars) is as definitive (I think -- ha
ha) as their vocalization, but they can help point in a particular
direction.

Neat bird for sure.
Thanks for reporting it.

From: Laura Stenzler <lms9...>
Subject: Re: [cayugabirds-l] Possible Western Wood-Pewee: Myers Point Area, Ladoga Park, Lansing, NY
There is some discussion about the dark lower bill, more characteristic of Western wood-peewee, as seen in the photo Ken shared. But “all about birds” notes that juveniles can have all dark bills. Read especially the last line, below.
“Eastern Wood-Pewees are olive-gray birds with dark wings, and little to no yellow on the underparts. The sides of the breast are dark with an off-white throat and belly, giving a vested appearance typical of pewees. They show little or no eyering. Adults have thin, white wingbars; those of juveniles are buffy. The underside of the bill is mostly yellow-orange, except in some juveniles.”

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Hudsonian Godwit
There was a Hudsonian Godwit seen today by a few people and missed by many more of us at La Salle's Landing Park after it was apparently flushed by a Peregrine Falcon. Up to three hours of searching for it by some failed to re-locate it. It was reported to have an injured leg so may still be around. And there were several other newly arrived godwits today elsewhere in the state, so they are apparently on the move. So head to your favorite shorebird site this weekend, and hope to get lucky!

Last Friday I had a Red Breasted Nuthatch for one day. It was unbelievably tame and came within a foot of me. It’s only the second time I’ve had one here. I haven’t seen it again, unfortunately.
I have four White Crowned Sparrows. One is an adult and the other three are first year Birds. I had 3 adults a week ago.
This morning I had my first Junco of the season, a beautiful male.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Montezuma
I stopped by the Montezuma Wildlife Drive around 4:00 today. The Visitor Center was the only place there were shorebirds which included Lesser Yellowlegs, many Killdeer, 2 Dunlin, and 3 Black-bellied Plovers. There was one Snow Goose there. On the back side of the drive just before the Eagle Statue, there were 6 Great Egrets. There were lots of ducks on the main pool which I didn’t go through.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Sunday Walk on the West Side of the lake
Hi fellow birders,

This Sunday the 14th I will lead a half day field trip to a few choice locations on the West side of the lake from 8:00AM to 12:30PM. Meet at the Ithaca Children’s Garden on route 89. Park back by the big turtle. We will bird there for a bit before going to Allen H. Treman State Marine Park and adjacent Hog Hole which will give us the opportunity to look for birds on the water as well as in the fields. Our birding adventure continues on to Taughannock Falls State Park and then the new Taughannock Falls Overlook Visitor's Center. The weather looks to be good with light winds and temperatures in the low 40s to low 50s by the time we arrive back at the big turtle. Bring a scope if you have one and dress for the weather and walking in wet grass.

All are invited to join regardless of experience level and membership status.

Ken Haas

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Mt Pleasant Bald Eagle!
Hi all,

During my morning "maintaining sanity" walk up Mt Pleasant Road, I watched a handsome adult Bald Eagle making its way steadily south against the south wind. Also a Northern Harrier at one point mobbing a Red-tailed Hawk.

And for the crow watchers, an individual wing tagged AI with color legs bands silver/blue/orange on the left.

Sanity maintained!

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Special Monday Night Seminar next week (October 15th)
Good Morning,


Next Monday will be the second annual event sponsored by the Cornell Lab,
the Paul C. Mundinger Distinguished Lectureship. This lectureship enables
us to bring to Cornell an ornithological scholar of highest repute to give
a talk to the full university community of staff, students, and members of
the public.



We are very excited to welcome Dr. Gail Patricelli as our second Mundinger
Distinguished Lecturer.
I hope you can help us spread the word!

This event will also be live streamed at bit.ly/BirdTalks. I hope you can
help us spread the word!


*Robots, Telemetry, and the Sex Lives of Wild Birds: Using Technology to
Understand and Protect an Enigmatic Bird*

*(Cornell Campus, B25 Warren Hall)*

*Monday, October 15th 2018, 5:00 pm*

*This is a free event, no RSVP required.*



Gail Patricelli, Professor & Chancellor's Fellow in the Department of
Evolution and Ecology at the University of California, Davis.



Animals use a dizzying array of sounds, smells, colors, dances, electrical
fields and seismic vibrations to convince each other to mate. These
elaborate courtship signals were a mystery until Darwin’s time—after
proposing his theory of natural selection, Darwin was left with the
question of how the flamboyant peacock could be shaped by the same process
that makes the peahen so perfectly camouflaged. There is now strong support
for Darwin’s answer to this question, the process he termed sexual
selection, proposing that the courting sex must be elaborate because the
courted sex demands it. But how can we study the conversations males and
females in non-human animals have about mating? One way to do this is to
participate, controlling one side of the conversation with a robot. Gail
Patricelli will talk about using robotic females and other technology to
study courtship behaviors in the greater sage-grouse, and how such research
informs conservation of this iconic North American bird and its habitat.



*This is the second talk in the Paul C. Mundinger Distinguished Lectureship
series, established in honor of the late Paul Mundinger, who received his
Ph.D. in Evolutionary Biology from Cornell. *



I hope to see you there!

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Reminder: Cayuga Bird Club meeting, October 8
TODAY, Monday, October 8, will be the monthly meeting of the Cayuga Bird Club. Everyone is invited- you do not have to be a member!
The meeting will be held at the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology. Doors open at 7:00 pm and there will be cookies and conversation starting at 7:15. Bird club business begins at 7:30 pm followed by the presentation.

Speaker: Kyle Horton, Ph.D; Postdoctoral Research Fellow
at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology

Presentation: Cloudy with a Chance of Migration
The notion of hundreds of millions, if not billions, of migratory birds passing in and out of broad geographic areas is of considerable public and ecological interest -- and of conservation concern. Capturing and quantifying these large-scale movements has remained a principle challenge. Kyle will discuss how he uses weather surveillance radar to quantify and forecast migratory movements across the United States.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] CBC field trip to Cornell Garden Plots and Bluegrass Lane, Sat Oct 6 and Sun Oct 7
On Saturday and Sunday, I led field trips for the Cayuga Bird Club at the
Cornell Garden Plots (known also as the Cornell Community Gardens) along
Freese Road. On both days, the viewing met my high expectations, with
everyone getting good looks at LINCOLN’S, SWAMP, WHITE-CROWNED, and
WHITE-THROATED SPARROWS. There were dozens of SONG SPARROWS too of course,
providing helpful visual and aural points of reference against which to
pick out the less-common birds.



The White-crowned Sparrows seem unusually abundant and easy to find this
year, with many sightings on each day, including a few of multiple
individuals in a single field of view. Conversely, SAVANNAH SPARROWS
continue to seem relatively scarce at the site this year. We barely
managed to see one on each day. I also didn’t find any FIELD SPARROWS at
all in the gardens this weekend, though Ken Haas saw one on Saturday.



The most surprising and distinctive sparrow of the weekend was a female
EASTERN TOWHEE on Saturday, which perched up for us for about 20 seconds on
the fence of the Dyce Lab corral. Sunday offered up its own special
touches, including a PALM WARBLER on the same spot on that fence, plus many
fine birds across the road on the Liddell Lab side – an EASTERN MEADOWLARK
resting in the grass, a BLUE-HEADED VIREO in a small tree near the
building, four WILD TURKEYS, a female NORTHERN HARRIER, and the first
OSPREY I’ve seen in weeks. Ken Kemphues and Leigh Stivers also found a
MARSH WREN in the cattails around the pond.



On both days I ended the walks by offering a visit to the grassy field west
of Bluegrass Lane, north of the Equine Research Park, to try our luck
finding Nelson’s Sparrow in the hidden cattail patches. Regrettably, a
giant bolt of lightning curtailed our effort just as it was beginning on
Saturday. Fortunately, we all escaped incineration and even inundation, as
the torrents held off until we were already back in our cars.



On Sunday, we did manage to get out to the field, though fog and wind
hampered our viewing. We didn’t find any birds of special note in the
grass, nor in the goldenrod and cattails. But as we walked back along the
gravel road, we got two last highlights for the weekend. The first was a
Lincoln’s Sparrow on a desiccated corn husk, offering close, wide-open
(albeit fog-shrouded) views for probably two full minutes. Then we had the
weekend’s best views of Savannah Sparrow browsing the puddles and gravel at
the grass edge.



I got a lot of help on both days from the sharp eyes and insight of many
other club members, especially Ken, Leigh, Bob McGuire and Phil McNeil, as
well as sparrow scientist Zena Casteel. My thanks to them, and to all who
came out for the walks!

Several of us had the HUDWIT in the pool at the refuge visitor’s center yesterday, early afternoon. Good looks from the balcony. About 15 minutes after being first seen it took off and flew NNE until we lost sight of it. It appeared to be heading towards K-M. We checked there an hour later and were unable to spot it. 
The visitor’s center pool held an ever-changing set of shorebirds: Long-billed Dowitchers, Stilt Sandpiper, and Dunlin.

From: Mark Chao <markchao...>
Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Cornell Community Gardens, Fri 10/5
On Saturday and Sunday, I’ll lead Cayuga Bird Club field trips in search of
sparrows and other field birds. We’ll start at 8 AM on both days at the
Cornell Community Gardens along Freese Road, and then head over to the
Bluegrass Lane fields if we have time. Come prepared to walk through mud
and tall, wet grasses and weeds.



Although the weather forecast appears a little less than ideal, I expect a
lot of fine birding. Today, Diane Morton, Ken Kemphues, and I found a very
good variety of sparrows at the community gardens, including two LINCOLN’S
SPARROWS, at least five WHITE-CROWNED SPARROWS (2+ juvenile, 3+ adult), one
or more WHITE-THROATED SPARROWS, a couple of SWAMP SPARROWS, a FIELD
SPARROW, and very many SONG SPARROWS. Later Bob McGuire and I found
several SAVANNAH SPARROWS here too, plus what I think was probably a third
Lincoln’s Sparrow.



Earlier, Diane, Ken, and I went looking for birds, especially Nelson’s
Sparrow, in the patches of cattails and goldenrod amid the sea of grass
west of Bluegrass Lane just south of Hanshaw Road. We didn’t find
Nelson’s, but did get a nice long sunlit view of a Lincoln’s Sparrow, plus
another of a beautiful female NORTHERN HARRIER. We also heard an AMERICAN
PIPIT or two flying overhead.



I hope to see many of you this weekend!



Mark Chao



PS. Another highlight of the day: two COMMON RAVENS soaring in circles
together for 5+ minutes, very high above our home on Simsbury Drive in
northeast Ithaca. This is probably the first time I’ve ever seen multiple
ravens here at home.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] eBird Report - Cornell University--Schoellkopf Field, Oct 1, 2018
Thought I would share this eBird list from the other night (Monday night). These are estimates, or specific call counts, of night migrants heard or seen flying in the airspace around Schoellkopf Stadium at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. That night was nowhere near the epic night migration on 11 October 2005, as described in this Wilson Journal of Ornithology article: https://www.jstor.org/stable/20456044 (not sure everyone has access to view…). There were no birds visibly in distress. If anything, calling rates were simply higher around the ambient light reflecting off the low foggy cloud ceiling.

Good night listening!

Sincerely,
Chris T-H

Cornell University--Schoellkopf Field, Tompkins, New York, US

Oct 1, 2018 8:24 PM - 9:50 PM

Protocol: Stationary

Comments: Excellent night migration. Predicted, suspected. Low foggy cloud ceiling, bright ambient lights at Schoellkopf Stadium. No practice or game, so little other acoustic disturbances for listening. This was the second best night migration I have personally experienced at this locale. Numbers are not call counts, but best estimates of numbers of individuals. Extremely conservative. Actual call count could easily be quadrupled or more. Very few birds continued to circle around more than once, if rarely twice; most could be heard audibly transiting over this area, with calling rates increasing while over brightly lit area. Once lights were extinguished, all calls ceased immediately.
12 species (+3 other taxa)

Gray-cheeked Thrush 48
NFC 48 | extremely conservative estimate of number of individuals.

Swainson's Thrush 102
NFC 102 | extremely conservative estimated number of individuals.

Wood Thrush 2
NFC 2

sparrow sp. 2
NFC 2 | one possibly was White-throated, but uncertain.

Common Yellowthroat 4
NFC 4 | distinct individuals

Cape May Warbler 5
NFC 5 Distinct night flight calls from this species heard directly overhead with several minutes between calls.

Bay-breasted Warbler 1
NFC 1 | Loudly calling individual, later observed flying and foraging in enclosed portion of upper Crescent. Logan confirmed visual ID.

Chestnut-sided Warbler 2
NFC 2 | audibly distinct calls from this species.

Blackpoll Warbler 6
NFC 6 | observed birds flying low, visible in the lights as well as foraging in ambient lit treetops. Majority of warbler NFCs were likely Blackpoll zeeps.

Black-throated Blue Warbler 12
NFC | 12 estimated number of distinct individuals

warbler sp. (Parulidae sp.) 205
NFC 205 | this is an extremely conservative best estimate of individuals passing through the stadium area during this count period. Likely hundreds more in broader audible range.

Scarlet Tanager 3
NFC 3 | distinct "pew-weet" or "pee-vee" calls from this species, audible during earlier time of listening period.

Rose-breasted Grosbeak 5
NFC 5 | audible clear squeaky "eek" notes heard during earlier portion of count period.

Indigo Bunting 2
NFC 2 | clearly musical sounding buzzes heard of a group of individuals occurring over a short time span

passerine sp. 1
NFC 1 | particularly intriguing low frequency sounding ringing buzz, reminiscent of the overlap of Indigo Bunting and Blue Grosbeak flight call. Beefier sounding. Around 21:02. Recorded.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Migration This Evening/Overnight?
The weather forecast looks rather interesting for tonight, especially at locations with high levels of light pollution (i.e., Schoellkopf Field/Stadium).

Tomorrow and over the next few days is also near peak for finding fallout migrant Nelson's Sparrows (Hog Hole, other large wet/flooded fields, sparrow spots, etc...).

Keep your eyes open and good luck finding these and other gem birds!

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Northern Saw-whet Owl banding
HI Folks,
I am continuing my Northern Saw-whet Owl banding project for this the tenth year. Our location is about 3 miles southeast of Slaterville Springs at 651 Hammond Hill Rd, referred to as HHOWLS. Last year we banded 137 owls. This year after two nights at the start of migration we have captured one saw-whet and one screech. Banding stations to the north of us have been banding for a couple weeks and report higher than average catch rates. I will band owls during the interval from now until after mid-November. Inappropriate weather occurs on about half to two-thirds of those nights so we only band on about 20 nights. If you would like to participate as a Banding Assistant please contact me at <confergoldwing...>. Banding Assistants should try to come out for a specific night of the week throughout the banding season, except, of course, on those nights when the weather is bad. The number of signups for this year provides very unequal numbers for different days. I may need to ask people if they could change. One-time-only visitors must make prior arrangement for a specific night.
as the saw-whet says
toot toot toot

I’ve had two White Throated Sparrows the last three days. I’ve also had a few Yellow Rump warblers coming for the bayberries. I had so many last year they stripped the bushes clean. Not this year. My only other warblers were a juvenile Yellow Throat which do nest in my yard, and a female Redstart. I have about 10 Blue Jays mobbing the feeders. I had a pair all summer. Not sure if the extras are off spring or migrants.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Migrating Blue Jays & Merlin - Mt Pleasant
Hi everyone,

Just back from a nice walk on Mt Pleasant Road with a fun bird sighting.
At the farmhouse "dip" east of the observatory, over the stand of large spruces I noticed a large flock of Blue Jays approaching from the north. I counted 14 as they took off over the open fields flying high and I was struck how silent they were . Minutes later another large flock took flight, but they backtracked (back-winged?) and started calling. A Merlin was in the vicinity and for several minutes the jays mobbed it as it alternately swooped around chasing them or perched atop one of the spruces. The Merlin eventually took off straight south and disappeared over the horizon. Shortly after that the flock of 30+ jays took off, again completely silently, and flew over the woods to the south.

Such fun to experience birds' lives this way!

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Sabine's Gull Broome County September 25th, 2018
All,

Ace birder Jon Weeks found a SABINE'S GULL at Dorchester Park Whitney
Point, NY late this morning in the middle of a driving rain. The bird
initially was on the water and then eventually flew, showing off its
distinct wing pattern. The bird was an adult. Unfortunately, the bird
didn't stay long and after an extensive search into the afternoon, the bird
was not re-located. This is a first e-bird record of a Sabine's in Broome
County, and possibly a first county record.

see https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S48740445 for Jon's checklist and
some photos of the bird on the water.

Best,
Dave Nicosia

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Sapsucker Woods, Tues 9/25
On Tuesday morning, I went to Sapsucker Woods, thinking that last night’s
storm might have downed some boreal thrushes and other birds. I found
almost nothing on the Wilson Trail, but eventually found a warbler flock by
the shelter on the East Trail, including an adult male CAPE MAY WARBLER and
a few BLACKPOLL WARBLERS. I didn’t detect any Catharus species at all,
despite some effort.



Then, having seen on eBird that Ruth Bennett had found many warblers and
vireos at noon along the Wilson Trail North, I created an excuse to return
in mid-afternoon. Where the trail enters the woods just past the Owens
Platform, I found a little flurry of songbirds -- at least two WILSON’S
WARBLERS, a BAY-BREASTED WARBLER, NASHVILLE WARBLER, BLACK-THROATED GREEN
WARBLER, and a BLUE-HEADED VIREO, plus a BROWN CREEPER and many chickadees.



A few quiet minutes later, I approached the Charley Harper bench. I saw
two birds foraging on the ground. One was a YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLER, right
on schedule, behaving just as I had seen in past Septembers and Octobers.
But the other – what a splendid surprise! It was another CAPE MAY
WARBLER. This bird eventually stayed long past the Yellow-rumped, offering
me about 30 minutes of close, unobscured views and very good photo ops,
right there in front of the bench. It was much duller than the Cape May
Warbler that I saw in the morning. I’m still not sure, however, of the age
and sex of the afternoon bird.



Here is my afternoon eBird checklist, which contains some photos.

I looked over the radar this morning and I didn't see anything obvious
around 938 am. Thermals are just beginning to rise at this time plus all
the fog that was around was lifting. Not sure from the data I have at home.
I will check from work tomorrow where I have higher resolution data.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] odd radar at mid-morning - migrating raptors?
I just refreshed the Binghamton weather radar map at 9:38am, which removed the obvious flower of night migration which I looked at before dawn this morning. But it looks like there are wispy remnants of the migration map mainly to our east, which could be raptors moving due south from the east end of Lake Ontario, but also some around southern Tompkins County in the highlands which might be kettles on updrafts from wind against hills or perhaps Broad-wingeds initiating thermal flight after a night of rest and an evening and morning hunting in the forests. Anyone with more knowledge of weather, radar, & migration care to consider these hypotheses?

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Swainson’s galore
40 degrees at my house this morning. I’m looking east toward Thatcher’s Pinnacles across the sunlit top of a river of cloud that fills the upper Cayuga Inlet Valley and flows slowly northward, like the tongue of a retreating glacier. All around me are the “pit” and “weep” calls of an unknown number of Swainson’s Thrushes, who have dropped out of the dawning sky for a day of rest and feeding, before taking wing again southward at dusk.
