Subject: [cayugabirds-l] old and new birds


Hi,
This has been a better than average year for feeder and yard birds at my house. I have both sexes of red bellied, downy and hairy woodpeckers and a female pileated, several rb and wb nuthatches. A white throated sparrow and a brown creeper that show up daily along with chickadees, bluejays, modos, d e Juncos, e starlings, n. cardinals, etc.. An a. crow frequently cleans up the scraps under the suet feeder. Recently, common grackles are infrequent visitors. In January a coopers hawk took a modo from the ground below a feeder. This week I added a cedar waxwing and an a. robin both whom must have been attracted by the feeder flock. This morning I am watching a small flock of song sparrows and a single fox sparrow. My first in yeaofrs.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] W-C Sparrow
The only sign we have of a fallout is a WHITE-CROWNED SPARROW under the
feeder. Also a second Song Sparrow in the same place.

For Donna, the huge flight of Snow Geese from the cornfields flew down to
the lake about 10 minutes ago. They were headed towards the power plant but
you should be able to see their raft(s) from your place.

Subject: Re: [cayugabirds-l] Snow geese
Today I drove from Ithaca to Montezuma NWR & back on the west side of Cayuga Lake. Notable Snow Goose sightings included:

Around 11am flocks of hundreds in lines and vees over Covert flying east toward the lake.

Around 5pm hundreds covering and grazing on the sheep pasture beside NYS-89 between Schuyler Creek and the Varick-Fayette Townline Road. They were nibbling grass, not rooting in corn.

Quite a few moderate-size rafts on Cayuga Lake fairly close to the west shore as I drove south in the evening. I did not notice the single giant raft in the middle of the lake which I consider typical.

I also recall that on 25 February, when Gary, Ann, & I went to Oswego to see the Clark's Grebe, we saw thousands of Snow Geese migrating north to, then northeast around Lake Ontario. I assume this was the exit of a big portion of the Cayuga Basin's first big wave of Snow Geese. I think we may have a different and smaller group now from a more recent wave.

Subject: Re: [cayugabirds-l] URGENT ALERT: Dodge Rd Spruce Woods may be cut down for massive Solar Farm on Dodge rd, STARTING in APRIL !!
HI all,
In general I am a lurker on this list that benefits from all the wonderful
learning I get to do via this listserv. Thank you everyone who posts!

We are having a discussion right on on the Village of Freeville listserv
regarding a proposed solar farm next to Willow Glen Cemetery. There are so
many sensitive issues to consider both at that location and Dodge Woods,
still I urge folks to show up to the Dryden Town Board meetings and listen
to the concerns and opinions of others and to voice their own- the dates
and times are listed below. My main concern was that not many people knew
about this issue since the language used in disseminated materials used
something along the lines of protest a Power Generating Plant, an omission
that I felt came with detrimental outcomes. In fact when I wrote my email
to the village many responded privately saying thank you, and that they did
not know about this proposal for large scale solar in Dryden.

I would like to leave you with a little bit of my perspective and linking
to an online document
<https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfP36WCeAHVazasXpxb3tgkfTOLkDEEsmpcvD-8KGVNACqp-Q/viewform?c=0&w=1>
that might be of use to other folks out there who wish to leave their
concerns, pros, cons, etc with the Dryden Town Board.

My opinion- I greatly respect the people that are willing to speak up for
what they believe in now, and for people that are willing to stand up and
work across generations, inter-politically, and across other divides for
solutions that we all need now. Solar is the number one solution for our
energy crisis currently. *We said no to fracking.* If we say no to solar
now the next time fracking corps come through nobody will have the fight
left in them to stand up to them. How could we fight next time when we
would clearly know that we cannot follow through with solutions, that we
are after all only NIMBYists? How would a hydraulic fracking operation
look next to Willow Glen Cemetery, or the woods at Dodge Rd? Maybe a giant
plant next to a cemetery is not the best idea? Perhaps we can use a screen
to shield the view if there are so many concerns about that? Are there
other places where we can do this? One worry though is that we will say no
to one location after the other, and that this is no time to waver on our
commitment to sustainable energy sources.

Please voice your concerns to the town board via this google form
<https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfP36WCeAHVazasXpxb3tgkfTOLkDEEsmpcvD-8KGVNACqp-Q/viewform?c=0&w=1>
soon as they are trying to make a decision soon, by March 30th I believe or
come to one of these meetings. Even if you have concerns regarding these
specific locations please let the town board that you support solar in
Dryden (that is if you do). Currently there are no regulations or laws in
Dryden about solar and this is an opportunity to weigh in and do this
right. I'd feel much differently about this community if we said no to
solar after we said to to fracking.

And if you are a Dryden resident come to a meeting at the Dryden Town Hall


*March 23 at 7 pm (today)*
*March 30 at 7 pm *



Thank you for your time,
Lea Elleseff

Hard to tell for sure, but it looks like some Snow Geese that flew west a hour or more ago, are returning to & landing in the large flock that remains on the lake.
This flock took flight a few times, flew a little to north, & landed again each time, so now they are in lake, west of, right across from, my abode at 535 Lans. Stat. Rd.

Subject: Re: [cayugabirds-l] URGENT ALERT: Dodge Rd Spruce Woods may be cut down for massive Solar Farm on Dodge rd, STARTING in APRIL !!
I imagine this new solar farm will be leased by Cornell, but built / maintained by a third party just like the one at the airport. For the solar company low installation cost will be the driving factor. Many separate panels all over campus installed by Cornell wouldn't be as cost effective and CU would have to maintain them.
The PSC got rid of net metering for residential solar this week so I suspect individual homeowner installation will become less desirable even as it has also been moving to leased systems.

I wish all parking lots had solar panels over them. It would be win-win since it would shade the parking lots and they are giant heat-generators and wasted space anyway. Put solar panels on top of malls too. On top of hospitals, industrial buildings, schools. There are lots of non-habitat spaces solar panels ought to go instead of places that support wildlife. Why is that not happening?

(yard bird news: I still had 2 Fox Sparrows visiting as of yesterday. I haven't seen them today.)

If the goal is to reduce greenhouse gas production, then cutting down trees
is counterproductive when installing solar panels. Also cutting trees down if they
are just along the edge of the array makes little sense because the great majority
of solar energy is during the middle of the day, not early morning nor late afternoon.

Putting solar panels in places that are just creating heat islands, not habitats, makes
lots of sense. Put them on rooftops. Put them over parking lots. Put them on lawns
that were already getting mowed. That's why home solar is great, but industrial scale
makes problems. Those fields that are being replaced as solar "farms" (cute name)
will still get rain and have seeds blow in. How will succession be blocked? Poisons?

If Cornell first decided to put solar panels on all its rooftops and over all its parking
lots, then over, say, the Ag Quad, and had run out places where they could put solar
panels without being destructive, I'd be more supportive. I think that grove is pretty
special, having seen several Long-eared Owls and a Northern Saw-whet Owl there.

Please consider this in your efforts to minimize your contribution to climate change:

Rearing cattle produces more greenhouse gases than driving cars, UN report warns
[http://static.un.org/News/dh/photos/11-29-fao-livestock.jpg]
6.3K<http://www.un.org/apps/news/story.asp?newsID=20772#>Share

Print<http://www.un.org/apps/news/story.asp?newsID=20772#>

29 November 2006 – Cattle-rearing generates more global warming greenhouse gases, as measured in CO2 equivalent, than transportation, and smarter production methods, including improved animal diets to reduce enteric fermentation and consequent methane emissions, are urgently needed, according to<http://www.fao.org/newsroom/en/news/2006/1000448/index.html> a new United Nations report released today.

“Livestock are one of the most significant contributors to today’s most serious environmental problems,” senior UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) official Henning Steinfeld said. “Urgent action is required to remedy the situation.”

Cattle-rearing is also a major source of land and water degradation, according to the FAO report, Livestock’s Long Shadow–Environmental Issues and Options<http://www.virtualcentre.org/en/library/key_pub/longshad/A0701E00.htm>, of which Mr. Steinfeld is the senior author.

“The environmental costs per unit of livestock production must be cut by one half, just to avoid the level of damage worsening beyond its present level,” it warns.

When emissions from land use and land use change are included, the livestock sector accounts for 9 per cent of CO2 deriving from human-related activities, but produces a much larger share of even more harmful greenhouse gases. It generates 65 per cent of human-related nitrous oxide, which has 296 times the Global Warming Potential (GWP) of CO2. Most of this comes from manure.

And it accounts for respectively 37 per cent of all human-induced methane (23 times as warming as CO2), which is largely produced by the digestive system of ruminants, and 64 per cent of ammonia, which contributes significantly to acid rain.

With increased prosperity, people are consuming more meat and dairy products every year, the report notes. Global meat production is projected to more than double from 229 million tonnes in 1999/2001 to 465 million tonnes in 2050, while milk output is set to climb from 580 to 1043 million tonnes.

The global livestock sector is growing faster than any other agricultural sub-sector. It provides livelihoods to about 1.3 billion people and contributes about 40 per cent to global agricultural output. For many poor farmers in developing countries livestock are also a source of renewable energy for draft and an essential source of organic fertilizer for their crops.

Livestock now use 30 per cent of the earth’s entire land surface, mostly permanent pasture but also including 33 per cent of the global arable land used to producing feed for livestock, the report notes. As forests are cleared to create new pastures, it is a major driver of deforestation, especially in Latin America where, for example, some 70 per cent of former forests in the Amazon have been turned over to grazing.

At the same time herds cause wide-scale land degradation, with about 20 per cent of pastures considered degraded through overgrazing, compaction and erosion. This figure is even higher in the drylands where inappropriate policies and inadequate livestock management contribute to advancing desertification.

The livestock business is among the most damaging sectors to the earth’s increasingly scarce water resources, contributing among other things to water pollution from animal wastes, antibiotics and hormones, chemicals from tanneries, fertilizers and the pesticides used to spray feed crops.

Beyond improving animal diets, proposed remedies to the multiple problems include soil conservation methods together with controlled livestock exclusion from sensitive areas; setting up biogas plant initiatives to recycle manure; improving efficiency of irrigation systems; and introducing full-cost pricing for water together with taxes to discourage large-scale livestock concentration close to cities.

Subject: Re: [cayugabirds-l] Free Audubon Guide (not the app)
This is an interesting site, Peter.
I suggest consulting it in conjunction with a site like https://www.fs.fed.us/nrs/atlas/ <https://www.fs.fed.us/nrs/atlas/> , which has more information connected to modeled shifts in habitat types. Habitat change will come on us more slowly than climate/temperature variables, I’m thinking. The site specifies for trees and birds (not all species of either). The site also is not as “friendly" as the Audubon one: strong map-reading skills, with at least some knowledge of research modeling techniques, will be helpful. Anyway, I think these two sites complement each other interestingly.

Subject: Re: [cayugabirds-l] URGENT ALERT: Dodge Rd Spruce Woods may be cut down for massive Solar Farm on Dodge rd, STARTING in APRIL !!
I wish all parking lots had solar panels over them. It would be win-win
since it would shade the parking lots and they are giant heat-generators
and wasted space anyway. Put solar panels on top of malls too. On top of
hospitals, industrial buildings, schools. There are lots of non-habitat
spaces solar panels ought to go instead of places that support wildlife.
Why is that not happening?

(yard bird news: I still had 2 Fox Sparrows visiting as of yesterday. I
haven't seen them today.)

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] woodcocks displaying - airport
A few weeks ago we heard at least 3 American Woodcocks peenting and
displaying in the brushy field on Mohawk Road (behind the airport). One of
them was close enough to not only see in the air, but also on the ground,
completing the entire display cycle in full view.

To get there, we take Snyder Road, turn right on Mohawk, and pull in at the
"service road. .

Last night I returned to the location and at at least 3 are still there
putting on a show.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] GB HERON
Shirley and I just got back from a trip up the west side of the lake. We
talked about the improbability of seeing a GREAT BLUE HERON since we
couldn't remember any having been reported yet. On the way south, we
stopped at Wolffy's for coffee and homemade carrot cake, Very good! And we
got a scoop of vanilla with it. About 100 yds south of Wolffy's, there it
was---a GBH standing in a little pool surrounded by rushes.

We had expected to see thousands of snow geese, but only saw two modest
rafts, a modest sized flyover, and a modest flock in a cornfield. There was
a scattering of ducks at the north end with a dozen different species. The
best bird, however, after the GBH was a N. HARRIER near the visitor center
at Montezuma. It drifted very slowly over the pavement right in front of
us. A beautiful day for birding.

If the goal is to reduce greenhouse gas production, then cutting down trees
is counterproductive when installing solar panels. Also cutting trees down if they
are just along the edge of the array makes little sense because the great majority
of solar energy is during the middle of the day, not early morning nor late afternoon.

Putting solar panels in places that are just creating heat islands, not habitats, makes
lots of sense. Put them on rooftops. Put them over parking lots. Put them on lawns
that were already getting mowed. That's why home solar is great, but industrial scale
makes problems. Those fields that are being replaced as solar "farms" (cute name)
will still get rain and have seeds blow in. How will succession be blocked? Poisons?

If Cornell first decided to put solar panels on all its rooftops and over all its parking
lots, then over, say, the Ag Quad, and had run out places where they could put solar
panels without being destructive, I'd be more supportive. I think that grove is pretty
special, having seen several Long-eared Owls and a Northern Saw-whet Owl there.

Folks........go to this site and check out the free audubon guide. As I
explored the listing on Magnolia warblers I noticed that as part of the
Guide they have a piece on "How climate change could affect this bird's
range.....seem to have one for each species...great resource AND free...

Well, we always turn off lights not being used - and more importantly we
have switched over to LED lights pretty much all through the house. We
hang almost all of our laundry up to dry. We keep our thermostat very
/very/ low all winter and do not have air conditioning. We have no
'instant on' energy vampires (hey, Martha, you forgot that one!). Can I
chime in now?

Nari said the spruces are being chopped down because they will shade
some of the panels. I'm wondering how many spruces need to be
sacrificed if that is the reason. Couldn't the westernmost 50' of
panels be omitted, or only the spruce trees necessary to minimize the
most damaging shade be cut? I'm not familiar with the lay of the land
there but why is this an all or nothing proposition?
Plus, if existing grasslands are being converted to solar panel use, is
this an opportunity to get Cornell to commit to managing a different
tract that they own so as to maximize its attractiveness to Bobolinks,
Meadowlarks, Grasshopper Sparrows, and Harriers?
Wind farms and solar farms need large tracts of undeveloped land. So do
many species of animals, including birds, and undeveloped land presently
used by these species always will be the cheapest & easiest place to
site clean energy projects. It is irresponsible to say that all large
tracts should be protected as habitat but it is equally irresponsible
not to look for ways to preserve what we can of existing habitat within
these projects, and even insist on the creation of new habitat nearby
when that is impossible, including habitat for non-endangered species
(also known as pre-endangered species). If _we_ don't ask for
modifications to be put in place to preserve habitat then who will?

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Cayuga Bird Club Owl Prowl
Cayuga Bird Club Field Trip. All are welcome.
Shush! OWL PROWL. Sun, 26 March, 7:00-~9:30.
Meet at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology Parking Lot
Weather Forecast: Temp. dropping toward freezing, light rain possible. Dress in winter-weather clothes. We'll drive to several locations, and use owl playbacks. This will give us a chance to get a response from a couple of the fairly easy to hear species as well as a couple of the less common species. But, reality is that we will do well if we get two species, although one of our stops has had a saw-whet respond on two occasion in recent weeks. North Wood Rd., Star Stanton Hill, Park Preserve are on our list of stops. Since owls get tired of hearing tapes and don't respond a multiple of times, please don't test these sites for owl in the preceding week, thanks. John Confer

Please consider this in your efforts to minimize your contribution to
climate change:

Rearing cattle produces more greenhouse gases than driving cars, UN report
warns

<http://www.un.org/apps/news/story.asp?newsID=20772#>6.3K
<http://www.un.org/apps/news/story.asp?newsID=20772#>Share

Print <http://www.un.org/apps/news/story.asp?newsID=20772#>

29 November 2006 – Cattle-rearing generates more global warming greenhouse
gases, as measured in CO2 equivalent, than transportation, and smarter
production methods, including improved animal diets to reduce enteric
fermentation and consequent methane emissions, are urgently needed, according
to <http://www.fao.org/newsroom/en/news/2006/1000448/index.html> a new
United Nations report released today.

“Livestock are one of the most significant contributors to today’s most
serious environmental problems,” senior UN Food and Agriculture
Organization (FAO) official Henning Steinfeld said. “Urgent action is
required to remedy the situation.”

Cattle-rearing is also a major source of land and water degradation,
according to the FAO report, Livestock’s Long Shadow–Environmental Issues
and Options
<http://www.virtualcentre.org/en/library/key_pub/longshad/A0701E00.htm>, of
which Mr. Steinfeld is the senior author.

“The environmental costs per unit of livestock production must be cut by
one half, just to avoid the level of damage worsening beyond its present
level,” it warns.

When emissions from land use and land use change are included, the
livestock sector accounts for 9 per cent of CO2 deriving from human-related
activities, but produces a much larger share of even more harmful
greenhouse gases. It generates 65 per cent of human-related nitrous oxide,
which has 296 times the Global Warming Potential (GWP) of CO2. Most of this
comes from manure.

And it accounts for respectively 37 per cent of all human-induced methane
(23 times as warming as CO2), which is largely produced by the digestive
system of ruminants, and 64 per cent of ammonia, which contributes
significantly to acid rain.

With increased prosperity, people are consuming more meat and dairy
products every year, the report notes. Global meat production is projected
to more than double from 229 million tonnes in 1999/2001 to 465 million
tonnes in 2050, while milk output is set to climb from 580 to 1043 million
tonnes.

The global livestock sector is growing faster than any other agricultural
sub-sector. It provides livelihoods to about 1.3 billion people and
contributes about 40 per cent to global agricultural output. For many poor
farmers in developing countries livestock are also a source of renewable
energy for draft and an essential source of organic fertilizer for their
crops.

Livestock now use 30 per cent of the earth’s entire land surface, mostly
permanent pasture but also including 33 per cent of the global arable land
used to producing feed for livestock, the report notes. As forests are
cleared to create new pastures, it is a major driver of deforestation,
especially in Latin America where, for example, some 70 per cent of former
forests in the Amazon have been turned over to grazing.

At the same time herds cause wide-scale land degradation, with about 20 per
cent of pastures considered degraded through overgrazing, compaction and
erosion. This figure is even higher in the drylands where inappropriate
policies and inadequate livestock management contribute to advancing
desertification.

The livestock business is among the most damaging sectors to the earth’s
increasingly scarce water resources, contributing among other things to
water pollution from animal wastes, antibiotics and hormones, chemicals
from tanneries, fertilizers and the pesticides used to spray feed crops.

Beyond improving animal diets, proposed remedies to the multiple problems
include soil conservation methods together with controlled livestock
exclusion from sensitive areas; setting up biogas plant initiatives to
recycle manure; improving efficiency of irrigation systems; and introducing
full-cost pricing for water together with taxes to discourage large-scale
livestock concentration close to cities.

As someone who believes we MUST reduce fossil fuel usage as quickly as
possible and as someone who frequently goes birding along Dodge Rd., this
is an issue which I personally grapple with. These woods are utilized by
Red-breasted Nuthatch, Golden-crowned Kinglet, migrating Cape May Warblers
and in the past, Long-eared Owl and on the other hand, the woods are an
artificial monoculture and the proposal seems to me to be removal of a
portion of the woods, not the entire lot.

Can I say we must use more renewable energy, yet also say, not here. I
really struggle with this. Any development will have negative consequences
on a micro scale, but I think the macro scale issues of fossil fuels vs
renewables, in this case, outweigh the micro scale issues of losing a
portion of a spruce woodlot. If this area were an endangered habitat, i
might feel differently.

My 2 cents,
Jeff Gerbracht

Hi Pete,

It's a global cycle, so the farther one goes from the equator in _either_ direction the greater the amplitude becomes. That just increases the salience of the cycling rate of change in photoperiod for any migrants that completely transit the tropics to spend our winter in the temperate or higher south latitudes.

I am not sure if the admins of this list want this subject covered here but
I can't embrace this viewpoint. Small patches of woods are constantly being
cut for residential development without the benefit of providing clean
energy. Cornell owns these woods I presume.
I don't have any more details than provided here so perhaps I don't
have the full story. We can continue to get our energy from far away which
involve fracking or coal burning and I think all birders agree these have
an enormous impact on wildlife.
Or we can learn to tolerate this kind of development.
Interestingly I just noticed some local resistance to a solar farm
proposed adjacent to a rural cemetery out Groton/Cortland way.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] URGENT ALERT: Dodge Rd Spruce Woods may be cut down for massive Solar Farm on Dodge rd, STARTING in APRIL !!
There is urgent need for lovers of birds and wildlife along Dodge Rd. to
be aware of imminent developments along Dodge Rd.

The massive industrial scale solar farm proposed in all the Cornell
owned fields along Dodge Rd and Stevenson Rd (as well as Turkey Hill
Rd.) is planning to start construction in a few weeks. There was a
hearing in Dryden last Thursday at which many residents spoke out
against the massive scale of the project which will devastate wildlife
habitat.

We have just learned this morning from a member of the Dryden
Conservation Board that they are proposing to cut down the Spruce Woods
bordering the WEST side of Dodge Rd. because they will shadow the panels
slated to go right along the very edge of Dodge R. next to a
(barbed-wire topped) fence!

If you are concerned about this assault and the effect of replacing all
the grassland in the fields with sod under the panels (and
herbicides???), please write immediately to the Dryden Town Board and
ATTEND THE PLANNING BOARD MEETING scheduled on THIS Thursday March 23,
at 7pm at the Dryden Town Hall on Main Street.

Please express your opinion that may help reduce the scale of this
commercial operation that will devastate wildlife in this favorite
location for viewing wildlife!

Nari & Gin Mistry

Ellis Hollow rd.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Sapsucker Woods, Sun 3/19
Highlights from Sapsucker Woods on Sunday morning (8:45-10:15 AM):



* A marvelous and mystifying creature out on the tallest snag in the main
pond. At first I thought it was an alien robot pod because its tapered
shape and face panel seemed superficially similar to those of EVE from
WALL-E. But then, from a better angle, I realized that it was more likely
an actual alien LIFE FORM (!), not a mere robot – and indeed probably an
intelligent one because it was wearing a thick, shaggy gray shawl. (Of
course one can also infer its intelligence simply because it somehow got
here from wherever it is from. But I did not find any signs of a
spacecraft.)



Animal taxonomy on this creature’s planet is evidently nothing like ours,
but from its various features, one can see analogies to our lepidopterans
(a pair of droopy antennae on a tiny black head), our macaques (a white
mane/beard), and even our birds (one long leg, not two, but with a
bird-like foot at the end). I know it is a little reckless to
anthropomorphize, but the white beard and contemplative hunched posture
make me think it could be a wise elder or even a royal figure in its
society.



I got a couple of photographs.



https://goo.gl/photos/UUcGZgv96hEu4yLK8

https://goo.gl/photos/Z7hHAvTakYqVHvyXA



This snag is where a pair of GREAT BLUE HERONS, including a male with a
missing toe, nested a few years ago. The nest fell in high winds around
2014, but the male returned in 2015 and 2016 during the day in spring and
summer to forage. Coincidentally, one of my photos shows the alien
creature with three toes on its bird-like foot, just like that male heron.
But my other photo shows four toes.



This post isn’t entirely OT (or ET)…I had some nice bird moments too.



* A male WOOD DUCK in the outlet stream along the Wilson Trail North. (I
was hoping to find a woodcock, but alas, the snow still extended all the
way to the edge of the stream, with no exposed ground anywhere.)



* A FOX SPARROW in the feeder garden, among many American Tree Sparrows,
one Song Sparrow, and one White-throated Sparrow.



* Marie Read’s photo exhibit in the Visitor Center’s auditorium. It is a
truly stirring and revelatory collection. Congratulations and many thanks,
Marie!



* Encounters with a couple of moms and precocious young kids building bonds
and sharing learning moments over birds by the feeder garden. After
picking through several species with his mother and sister, one boy
exclaimed that he saw a “penguin bird.” His mom patiently tried to divert
the conversation back to the real birds before us, including Red-winged
Blackbirds and a male Northern Cardinal. But the boy continued,
insistently, “I saw a penguin bird! It had a black head, and its back was
all black too, and it was all white here [pointing to his own belly]!”
Another glance at the garden, and I understood. If you squint and free
your imagination, Dark-eyed Juncos DO look a little like puny penguin-birds
on the deep snow…

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Mockingbird mocking
We went to Sampson State Park again today where we heard a mockingbird
singing a full repertoire of songs from apparently across the large
field judging by the quality of the sound and the volume. Except then I
saw the bird, only about 50' away - he was singing in a full but very
quiet voice, running through a couple of dozen songs with the same
dexterity that he will showing regularly in a few weeks, except somehow
dialing the volume way down while not changing the quality of the
sound. Perhaps warming up for the first day of spring tomorrow?

Cardinals, titmice, chickadees, robins & mourning doves also singing in
the warmth of the full sun, but they weren't holding back.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Stewart Park / Fall Creek Highlights
Today, I heard a bluebird in a Sugar Maple outside my window in Fall Creek,
first time!. I usually see them around Boynton Middle School in years
past, and today I saw a pair today down near the inlet near the fire
practice area with two finches that had a rosy blush on the chest. They
left before I could get my binoculars on them.

At the Fuertes Sanctuary, I came across a Red-tailed Hawk resting on a log
near the water. Looked like it had just eaten given blood stains around
its mouth. I could not see perfectly without a scope, but from the black
and white markings, size, and shapes, it looked like there were many Hooded
Mergansers and possibly four Buffleheads.

Could hear lots of starlings and blackbirds along the inlet, mourning
doves. I'm finding I am getting lazy when I hear a bird I know the call
of. I don't even bother to pick up my binoculars any more. I guess I
should because there might be other species mixed in. Gorgeous day
nonetheless, hope everyone got to get out or will get out soon!

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Observations
I spent an hour at Myers Town Park this morning, listening to (and recording) the many different calls of Herring and Ring-billed Gulls. Conditions were perfect - no wind ( the lake was like glass) and little traffic noise except for one slow-moving helicopter.

There was a group of 8 American Pipits foraging along the shore, and well as two Killdeer and some 20 Robins. The Robins, in particular, were finding food on top of the snow, so I assumed that there had been some sort of insect hatch.

More interesting, many of the Ring-billed Gulls were swimming up & down the creek, picking something from the surface (or just under it) of the water. Again, I assume some sort of insect hatch. The Herring Gulls, however, ignored whatever the Ring-bills were feeding on and continued loafing in shallow water.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] a Yard First
About 9:30 this A.M. we experienced a First for our yard. Eight Canada
Geese flew in to a patch of green grass that had been swept clear of snow by
the wind. From there, they walked down to the edge of the field. Finding
nothing better than the green grass, they walked back. There a couple of
human-type walkers on the road scared them off. We have seen a zillion
Canada Geese but never in our yard in 17 years. We are on the direct flight
path between the corn fields on Cayuga View Rd and the lake, so we see a lot
of geese overhead. Last night at dusk we were in the kitchen and heard a
great noise outside. We rushed to the window and saw a couple thousand Snow
Geese headed for the lake. A quick look this morning for a raft of geese
revealed nothing but they could have been close to the Boy Scout camp and
screened from view by the many trees.



Twenty-two species in the yard but no Fox Sparrows and no raptors.

But they were lined up so neatly I couldn’t believe it was accidental. Had they been killed by a hawk, I would not have expected the bodies to be there. We have indoor cats but they never go out. There are other cats around but not that close to the house; even if they were close our cats would let us know I’m sure.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Woodcocks, Cardinals
An interesting article about Woodcocks from today’s NY Times.

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/17/nyregion/an-early-bird-gets-caught-in-the-snowstorm.html?emc=edit_th_20170318&nl=todaysheadlines&nlid=28196654

On another topic. The other day I found a dead male Cardinal on our side patio. There was no sign of trauma. However, it reminded me of the awful day last spring when I found 4-5 dead Cardinals lined up on the same patio. Again, no sign of trauma. There are windows they could have struck; I have decals on them to help with prevention (I’m aware the decals are not a complete solution). But they were lined up so neatly I couldn’t believe it was accidental. Had they been killed by a hawk, I would not have expected the bodies to be there. We have indoor cats but they never go out. There are other cats around but not that close to the house; even if they were close our cats would let us know I’m sure.

I have some photos of the immediate area of the house if it would help. I would really be interested in any ideas, advice, etc. anyone has.

Thanks.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Eagles and Snow Geese
Beautiful day to be outside! We took our dog for a walk at Sampson
State Park this afternoon and as we were walking on the road that leads
to the gate on the north end, where the private housing abuts the park,
we saw hundreds of Snow Geese flying just above the lake from north to
south. We watched a continuous stream go past that 'window' over the
gate for over a minute. The flight was underway when we rounded the
slight bend so have no idea how many total. We also could hear them
barking to west and it sounded like perhaps they had landed on Seneca
Lake but the lake isn't visible from the road there.

Also at that spot at the north end of the park we saw a pair of Bald
Eagles soaring together, first fairly low but gradually spiraling higher
& higher until they were high enough that their white heads and tails
could not be seen except with binoculars and they were hard to see at
certain angles even if you knew where to look. Anyone know where there
is a nest near there?

Back in Ovid, we still have one each Fox Sparrow (down from two), Am
Tree Sparrow, and White Throated Sparrow, along with the usual feeder
birds and occasional sorties by various black birds.

Subject: RE: [cayugabirds-l] snow geese
We had numerous small flocks fly over our house this morning. Probably 20+ flocks of 50-100 birds, coming from the direction of Cayuga Lake and flying southwest. Not sure where they were headed.

This evening about 5:30pm there was an enormous flock of snow geese on the ground in fields east of Co Rd 129 between Wycoff and Munson Rds in Ovid. I would guess 20-30 acres (and perhaps more) just covered with snow geese.

I have seen that same flock of SNOW GEESE on Cayuga lake that Bill reported. Been there all day.
Yesterday I saw 4 blue SNOW GEESE looking for food in field at corner of Lansing Station Rd & Rt 34B, along with large flock (30 or so) of SNOW BUNTINGS with a few HORNED LARKS. First Snow Buntings for me this winter (not for lack of trying to find some!)

I have gone through a whole bag of bird seed this week feeding hundreds of birds at home.

Subject: Re:[cayugabirds-l] OT- Finger Lakes NF sensitive species help
Hello Josh,
Sedge Wren (NY Threatened) should be added if there are fields within FLNF that are not managed for cattle and putting greens. I recall being a part of July surveys during the early 90s where we found a Sedge Wren with young and lots of Henslow’s in late cut hayfields around the periphery of FLNF, but none within. I suspect both species may still be irregular breeders in small numbers at FLNF & vicinity, especially in fields with no grazing contracts.

Hello all,
I've been volunteering in the Finger Lakes National Forest checking on the condition of bird boxes for the new biologist there. He is currently updating the Regional Forester Sensitive Species list for the forest, and asked for my input on any birds that should be added to the list that are in trouble. It would be irresponsible of me to give advice without asking for input from this community, who are far more knowledgeable than I am.
What I have done in my efforts to make good recommendations are to crosscheck eBird sightings with the NY DEC's list of state Endangered, Threatened, and Species of concern, as well as the most recent State of the Birds report for species that are in trouble versus those that occur in the forest. I included any birds in the SotB report that received a score of "13" or higher. If any of you have recommendations for additional species, or other edits, please let me know. Thank you all for any input. Below is the list of bird species I came up with that have been recorded in eBird as occuring in the Finger Lakes NF, with NYDEC sensitive species first.

Short-eared Owl- NY Endangered
Golden Eagle- NY Endangered (usually a migrant, one recent record of a perched bird)
Pied-billed Grebe- NY Threatened
Bald Eagle- NY Threatened
Northern Harrier- NY Threatened
Henslow's Sparrow- NY Threatened
Upland Sandpiper- NY Threatened (flyover record, but habitat seems amenable)
Northern Goshawk- NY Species of Concern (SoC)
Cooper's Hawk- NY SoC
Sharp-shinned Hawk- NY SoC
Red-shouldered Hawk- NY SoC
Common Nighthawk- NY Soc
Horned Lark- NY SoC
Vesper Sparrow- NY SoC
Grasshopper Sparrow- NY SoC

Birds not listed by NY DEC, but in trouble globally according to 2016 State of the BIrds report follow. The State of the Birds Watch List includes any species with a score of 14 or higher, as well as those with a score of 13 and a rapidly declining population. I have included all species that scored a 13 or higher that are known to occur in the Finger Lakes NF below:

Bobolink- 14 breeding
Wood Thrush- 14 breeding
Canada Warbler- 14 breeding?
American Woodcock- 13 breeding
Black-billed Cuckoo- 13 breeding
Blue-winged Warbler- 13 breeding
Prairie Warbler- 13 breeding
Cape May Warbler- 13 migrant
Connecticut Warble- 13 migrant

Honorable mentions- birds that score a 12 that breed on Finger Lakes NF lands:
Yellow-billed Cuckoo
Chestnut-sided Warbler
Louisiana Waterthrush
Mourning Warbler (breeds?)
Veery
Field Sparrow
Rusty Blackbird (migrant?)

It will tell you if Cooper's Hawks were recorded breeding somewhere in a given block 5 kilometers square, but it won't tell you if the selective cut you're planning at GPS coordinates ___ goes through the heart of a traditional Cooper's Hawk nesting territory. For that you need more precise location info.

Hi Geo,

No, breeding-code information is a standard part of the most widely-used pre-packaged distribution of eBird data, the eBird Basic Dataset (EBD). You can't call up this information on the eBird website, if I'm not mistaken, but then I wouldn't recommend using website output to do anything major in regard to research or management anyway.

Thank you all for your support!
Ken, Thanks so much for the great Partners in Flight resource and species
list! I'll be sure to include those birds as well. Some of those Common
Birds in Steep Decline are pretty alarming, given just how common they seem
here. I'll give Greg your email as a further contact. I'm not sure of the
process involved in updating the RFSS, or what will come of it. I am
optimistic that the information provided will be taken into consideration
for the management of woodland habitat and grazing practices in the Finger
Lakes NF. Thanks again for all your help!
Best,
Josh

Josh,

Great job compiling conservation status information on these birds! Sorting through all the various lists at state, national, and global scales can be very challenging. I think youre approach of combining state-listed species, global concern lists, and eBird records is exactly the right approach to take.

Another recent source with additional information on these species is the Partners in Flight Landbird Conservation Plan, also published in 2016: http://www.partnersinflight.org/ The only minor change since the State of the Birds report, is that Evening Grosbeak was added to the Watch List because of its steep declines it could be added to your list as a winter visitor (now rare) on FLNF. Olive-sided Flycatcher (also on the Watch List) also could potentially be added as a migrant.

The Partners in Flight Plan also lists a group of Common Birds in Steep Decline, which are not yet on the Watch List, but have lost 50% or more of their global population since 1970 (according to the BBS), and are often representative of degraded habitats. These include the Yellow-billed Cuckoo, Field Sparrow, and Rusty Blackbird, which you have already listed as honorable mentions, as well as some other common local species Bank Swallow (B), Blackpoll Warbler (migrant), Pine Siskin (W), Eastern Meadowlark (B), Chimney Swift (B), Wilsons Warbler (M), Least Flycatcher (B), American Tree Sparrow (W), and Common Grackle (!).

If the FLNF has additional questions, or is going through a formal process to update their list, I would be happy to provide more input.

Hello all,
I've been volunteering in the Finger Lakes National Forest checking on the condition of bird boxes for the new biologist there. He is currently updating the Regional Forester Sensitive Species list for the forest, and asked for my input on any birds that should be added to the list that are in trouble. It would be irresponsible of me to give advice without asking for input from this community, who are far more knowledgeable than I am.
What I have done in my efforts to make good recommendations are to crosscheck eBird sightings with the NY DEC's list of state Endangered, Threatened, and Species of concern, as well as the most recent State of the Birds report for species that are in trouble versus those that occur in the forest. I included any birds in the SotB report that received a score of "13" or higher. If any of you have recommendations for additional species, or other edits, please let me know. Thank you all for any input. Below is the list of bird species I came up with that have been recorded in eBird as occuring in the Finger Lakes NF, with NYDEC sensitive species first.

Short-eared Owl- NY Endangered
Golden Eagle- NY Endangered (usually a migrant, one recent record of a perched bird)
Pied-billed Grebe- NY Threatened
Bald Eagle- NY Threatened
Northern Harrier- NY Threatened
Henslow's Sparrow- NY Threatened
Upland Sandpiper- NY Threatened (flyover record, but habitat seems amenable)
Northern Goshawk- NY Species of Concern (SoC)
Cooper's Hawk- NY SoC
Sharp-shinned Hawk- NY SoC
Red-shouldered Hawk- NY SoC
Common Nighthawk- NY Soc
Horned Lark- NY SoC
Vesper Sparrow- NY SoC
Grasshopper Sparrow- NY SoC

Birds not listed by NY DEC, but in trouble globally according to 2016 State of the BIrds report follow. The State of the Birds Watch List includes any species with a score of 14 or higher, as well as those with a score of 13 and a rapidly declining population. I have included all species that scored a 13 or higher that are known to occur in the Finger Lakes NF below:

Bobolink- 14 breeding
Wood Thrush- 14 breeding
Canada Warbler- 14 breeding?
American Woodcock- 13 breeding
Black-billed Cuckoo- 13 breeding
Blue-winged Warbler- 13 breeding
Prairie Warbler- 13 breeding
Cape May Warbler- 13 migrant
Connecticut Warble- 13 migrant

Honorable mentions- birds that score a 12 that breed on Finger Lakes NF lands:

Chestnut-sided Warbler
Louisiana Waterthrush
Mourning Warbler (breeds?)
Veery
Field Sparrow
Rusty Blackbird (migrant?)

Subject: Re: [cayugabirds-l] Feeder birds
On southern end of Hammond Hill, four Fox Sparrow seen at once at our feeder, but no White-throats nor Song. Several dozen junco, but fewer goldfinch than in recent past. Over 100 b'birds: mostly red-wings, several grackles, 1 cowbird, and a few starlings


Sitting at the window in this weather beats going out to watch starving birds.

Hello Josh,

You have done a great service, not just for the Finger Lakes National
Forest staff, but for all of us by conducting and posting your analysis.
As a member of the Cayuga Bird Club, you are demonstrating how our members
contribute to bird conservation through their passion in birds and other
forms of nature. Thank you very much for doing this, and for being an
ambassador for birds and birding in the Finger Lakes region and beyond!

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] OT- Finger Lakes NF sensitive species help
Hello all,
I've been volunteering in the Finger Lakes National Forest checking on the
condition of bird boxes for the new biologist there. He is currently
updating the Regional Forester Sensitive Species list for the forest, and
asked for my input on any birds that should be added to the list that are
in trouble. It would be irresponsible of me to give advice without asking
for input from this community, who are far more knowledgeable than I am.
What I have done in my efforts to make good recommendations are to
crosscheck eBird sightings with the NY DEC's list of state Endangered,
Threatened, and Species of concern, as well as the most recent State of the
Birds report for species that are in trouble versus those that occur in the
forest. I included any birds in the SotB report that received a score of
"13" or higher. If any of you have recommendations for additional species,
or other edits, please let me know. Thank you all for any input. Below is
the list of bird species I came up with that have been recorded in eBird as
occuring in the Finger Lakes NF, with NYDEC sensitive species first.

Short-eared Owl- NY Endangered
Golden Eagle- NY Endangered (usually a migrant, one recent record of a
perched bird)
Pied-billed Grebe- NY Threatened
Bald Eagle- NY Threatened
Northern Harrier- NY Threatened
Henslow's Sparrow- NY Threatened
Upland Sandpiper- NY Threatened (flyover record, but habitat seems amenable)
Northern Goshawk- NY Species of Concern (SoC)
Cooper's Hawk- NY SoC
Sharp-shinned Hawk- NY SoC
Red-shouldered Hawk- NY SoC
Common Nighthawk- NY Soc
Horned Lark- NY SoC
Vesper Sparrow- NY SoC
Grasshopper Sparrow- NY SoC

Birds not listed by NY DEC, but in trouble globally according to 2016 State
of the BIrds report follow. The State of the Birds Watch List includes any
species with a score of 14 or higher, as well as those with a score of 13
and a rapidly declining population. I have included all species that scored
a 13 or higher that are known to occur in the Finger Lakes NF below:

Bobolink- 14 breeding
Wood Thrush- 14 breeding
Canada Warbler- 14 breeding?
American Woodcock- 13 breeding
Black-billed Cuckoo- 13 breeding
Blue-winged Warbler- 13 breeding
Prairie Warbler- 13 breeding
Cape May Warbler- 13 migrant
Connecticut Warble- 13 migrant

Honorable mentions- birds that score a 12 that breed on Finger Lakes NF
lands:
Yellow-billed Cuckoo
Chestnut-sided Warbler
Louisiana Waterthrush
Mourning Warbler (breeds?)
Veery
Field Sparrow
Rusty Blackbird (migrant?)

Subject: Re: [cayugabirds-l] Deep snow
Keeping a slovenly musician's schedule, I revere the Fox Sparrows for
showing up at our feeder area in the afternoon. Our two gorgeous Fox
Sparrow visitors continued into the evening, putting me at odds between
not wanting to frighten them away and wanting to give them more food to
scratch at. They finally retired and I put out extra seed in hopes to
see them again and to help them on their way. Forgive me for being
overly romantic. I haven't seen these absolutely beautiful and
entertaining birds for decades! And thank you to everyone on this list
for reporting this glorious species so I was on the lookout!! You all
are the reason I lurk on this list

I, too, did some feeder-watching this afternoon. I was hoping for a Fox Sparrow, a species which I saw in my yard a few years back during a late heavy snowstorm. My hopes were raised briefly by what turned out to be a Song Sparrow, which eventually fed on a suet/seed block, a behavior I hadn't seen before. I guess that bird must innovate to stay fed.

I also saw an Icterid which I expected to be a local Red-winged Blackbird, since they have been in the area and even sung from my yard, where they nest. Instead it turned out to be a Rusty Blackbird, a new species for my yard, although there is a bit of woods and wetland adjacent. I think it was visiting feeders at my neighbor's.

I'm feeling sorry for Fox Sparrows. Early this morning they were still working the ground under sheltering spruces, rummaging among the snow-dusted leaves, but all that is buried now.

Grackles and Red-wings occupied the sunflower feeder, dispossessing some of the smaller birds. A Raven attempted to land at our crow-feeding station, but stiff aerial opposition from the Crows prevented that.

Subject: Re:[cayugabirds-l] RB grosbeak, for real
So on more careful consideration, and sage input from Bill Evans, I'm going
to retract that bold report, and go with female red-winged blackbird. Which
made more sense to me, given the fellowship with the cowbirds. Ah well.
Welcome to my feeders, blackbirds! They also showed up in the last March 14
(1993) snowstorm in huge numbers.

Oddly enough, the small flock of brown-headed cowbirds gorging on black oil
sunflower seed included a very bossy female rose-breasted grosbeak. I
didn't believe Joe at first when he told me, but just watched it with my
own eyes.

He also saw a phoebe looking for shelter from the storm earlier this
morning, poking about in the eves behind our kitchen.

At the feeders, two Fox Sparrows, Pileated Woodpecker, and the usual cast of characters.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] an enjoyable day at the feeders...
Homeschoolers don't often take "snow days", but oh well, why not! Our feeder birds are providing entertainment as I work on my computer. A lone grackle sits hunched on a branch overlooking the suet while everyone else partakes - chickadees, downy, hairy, red-bellied, brown creeper, red- and white-breasted nuthatches, cardinal and blue jays. The titmouses, goldfinches, mourning doves, juncos and tree sparrows prefer the normal seed feeders still. Our pine siskin has not re-appeared, but the house finches are back. The local sharp-shinned hawk has also shown up in a nearby maple tree contemplating his dinner choices! An enjoyable day indeed!Colleen Richards

Pete,
The short answer is we have done so for the last 31 years. Many of our publications
address climate related changes in bird numbers and activity. Others relate many
negative changes to changes in farming practices.

Our 31 years as co-op weather reporting station for the NWS provide daily climate
data to both NWS and the public. That info allows unique on-site, exact weather
correlation to several studies. We have the first 10 years of an ongoing study of
the phenology of a dragonfly species currently in press. That study relies heavily
on the daily climate data collected here.

All our, and all other banding station' data are kept in a data base at the Bird
Banding Lab at Patuxent Wildlife Research Center in Md and accessible by request to
public researchers. The climate data is also available via the National Climate data
Center.

Best,
John

478 Thomas Road, second house on “W” side from Ellis Hollow Rd. Seen sitting fluffed in low rose bush not far from the feeders, with three similarly fluffed American robins, although they were more actively scoping all the rose bushes for hips. First time I have ever seen a robin hovering protractedly over anything.

The catbird moved with the robins farther into the woods as I went back to my car for a camera.

Had left the camera while trying to find a crow with a broken wing that was there and across Ellis Hollow Rd on Thursday. Please call me if you see it!

I am seeing similar woodpecker behavior today. A female Downy has been clinging stock still to the top of a nearly empty suet feeder for the better part of an hour, and not even in a place where she can feed. No other birds are at our feeder area, nor that I can see around feeders next door. I see no hawks (nor crows) as I look out other windows, but I know there is a Merlin somewhere in the neighborhood, because I saw it perched atop a tree a couple blocks away as I walked home from Greenstar at quarter to twelve. I have seen a woodpecker stay motionless before as if to hide from predators, but I think perhaps this one is just resting.

Also to address your question, Sandy, I can't recall ever seeing a crow chase or attack a Downy Woodpecker.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Rusty Blackbirds and other feeder birds
Our feeders have been inundated this morning by large numbers of red-winged blackbirds (40+), rusty blackbirds (20+) and two common grackles. The flock has currently evacuated the premises leaving behind the usual group of house finches, red-breasted and white-breasted nuthatch, goldfinches, chickadees, red-bellied, downy, hairy woodpeckers, juncos, one American tree sparrow, and our solitary fox sparrow who has been with us for the last three weeks. We also have had a loose flock of robins (20+) around for the last few days eating hawthorn berries as well as a small flock of cedar waxwings which is a local flock that nests in the area.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Fox Sparrow stopover
In 31 years here we have never had Fox Sparrows in numbers greater than one, rarely
two, stay more than a day or two spring and fall. As of today we have had three FOSP
now here for an extended stopover of two weeks!

As a side note, we ceased passerine banding operations here after Fall 2012
migration with some 125,000 birds banded since 1986. Amazingly, we are still seeing
a few banded birds as they return "home". Species include BC Chickadee, Tufted
Titmouse (the BCCH a migrant, the TUTI a local), Red-winged Blackbird, Common
Grackle, Song Sparrow (all migrant) and a local male Red-bellied Woodpecker. The
latter has to be at least 8 plus years of age while the former species all at least
in the 5 plus year area.

We are curious if others who reported FOSPs this year are also experiencing the
extended stay???

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Downy woodpecker behavior question
I've been meaning to post this for a few months. I noticed a female downy
at my feeder about six weeks ago who did not move for about 25 minutes. I
was super busy that day going in and out of the kitchen, and after about
two or three minutes, noted she had never moved her position. Usually, she
does not stay for more than a few minutes, but this day she was so still
that I could see her inner eye cover things blink over her eyes. A few
times she moved her eyes to look, but stiller than still. I tried to see
what it was she was looking at but saw no hawks...later, I remembered
hearing American crows coming from the direction of the tree she was
looking up at, and they were calling the entire time. So I am wondering if
anyone has ever seen a crow go after a downy????

The Cayuga Bird Club's March meeting is Monday, March 13.This month we have a "Double-Header"!
The Opening Reception of Free Spirits: an Exhibition of Bird Photographs by Marie Read will be taking place at 5:30 at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology.
At 7:30 the Club will begin its meeting, and our speaker, Jody Enck, PhD, Conservation Social Scientist and President, Cayuga Bird Club will be presenting: "Sister Bird Club Network: Linking Clubs in the US and Honduras through the Neotropical Migratory Birds We Share".Jody is a lifelong birder and current President of the Cayuga Bird Club. In October and November of 2016, he traveled around Honduras meeting with nearly all the bird clubs there to "test the waters" about the idea of establishing a sister bird club network. Clubs in Honduras enthusiastically jumped on-board with the idea. Jody will share pictures and stories about the birds and birders he met during almost 5 weeks in Honduras. In particular, he will share ideas from the clubs in Honduras about how a sister club network might play out. He will pass along some of the things he learned about how "our birds of summer" behave and use habitat so differently when they are on the wintering grounds. He also will share ideas the Honduran clubs have for hosting birders from our club in the near future.In leiu of a speaker dinner, Club members are encouraged to attend Marie's Opening Reception.

Perspectives on Nocturnal Bird Migration: What We've Learned from BirdCast



*Speaker: *Dr. Andrew Farnsworth, Research Associate, Cornell Lab of
Ornithology



Bird migration is a spectacular phenomenon that has long captured the
attention of human observers. The Cornell Lab's BirdCast project
<http://birdcast.info/?utm_source=Cornell+Lab+Staff+eNews&utm_campaign=23bb415a34-Sapsucker_Woods_Events_Feb2017&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_1c649f110c-23bb415a34->
uses state-of-the-art machine learning and computer science, along with
data from radar and acoustic monitoring, to uncover migration secrets.
Andrew Farnsworth will talk about some of the novel insights revealed by
this fascinating project.



*You can watch any of our past live-streamed seminars via the **free video
seminar archive* <http://bit.ly/1fYRfuT>* on our website.*

Juan Pablo Culasso



*A World of Sound*



A blind birdwatcher from Uruguay proves you don’t need sight to see.
Through the sounds of nature he is able to envision the world that
surrounds him. Juan Pablo Culasso is one of the best birdwatchers in the
Americas by using his ears, not his eyes. He was born blind and as a child
learned to identify the feathered creatures by their voices. As an adult,
his career is recording the sounds of nature. Last year, he had the
opportunity, as a guest of the Uruguayan government, to travel to
Antarctica to learn the landscape of the world’s last wilderness through
its sounds. Join us to hear from Juan Pablo about his travels to this
remote place and what he discovered there.





May 1, 2017

Dr. Christine Sheppard, Bird Collisions Campaign Manager, American Bird
Conservancy



*Bird Mortality From Collisions With Glass: What we’ve learned, what we
need to know, what you can do*



You probably think that you can see glass – but long ago, you learned a
concept – glass is an invisible barrier or reflective illusion – that birds
never understand. As many as a billion birds die each year in the U.S.,
nearly half of them on home windows. In the last decade, many scientists
have contributed pieces to the puzzle of how birds really see the world.
This has established a basis for developing new solutions for existing
glass, as well as materials and design strategies for creating new,
bird-friendly buildings. Most architects, urban planners – most people –
don’t understand why birds are important and how big the collisions problem
is. Virtually everyone has seen or heard a bird hit glass, but think of it
as a rare occurrence. Dr. Christine Sheppard will discuss the tools we have
to solve the problem and the big job ahead getting those solutions
implemented. However, this is one conservation issue where individuals can
take immediate action and see immediate results.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Eastern Bird Banding Association Meeting
Hi bird friends,

The Eastern Bird Banding Association will be having its annual meeting on
March 24-26 in Ithaca, and it's possible that some of the events may be of
interest to local birders.

EBBA's members range from volunteer banders at small stations to the
coordinators of sophisticated research programs like Project Snowstorm.
Our meetings include papers and presentations, birding excursions, a
thrilling bucket raffle, and a tour of the Cornell Lab of Ornithology. Did
I mention that David Bonter is the keynote speaker?

Most of the action takes place on Saturday; details can be found at
http://www.easternbirdbanding.org/2017-ebba-meeting/.

There is a registration fee of $40 ($25 for students); meals are extra. Early
registration ends on March 3, so sign up today!

If you are interested and want more information, feel free to email me.

Cheers,
Andrea Patterson

Meanwhile, the shrike continues to hang out cooperatively at the corner of Seybolt and Canoga (south curve), while Dean's Cove saw a ridiculous number of red-breasted mergansers (at least 120, if I remember Paul's count).

The EURASIAN WIGEON was still in Knox-Marsellus this afternoon, towards the

EURASIAN WIGEON in the mostly Aythya flock at the north end of Cayuga Lake
viewed from the north bend of Lake Rd. in Canoga, north of Cayuga Lake

unnaturally high numbers of dabbling ducks and blackbirds.

I encountered a massive flock of blackbirds this morning near the DEC Headquarters building at the end of Morgan Road - one of the best sightings I have had so far this year (along with the Gyrfalcon, Snowy Owls, and vocalizing Iceland Gulls on PEI). The flock contained Common Grackles, Red-winged Blackbirds, and Brown-headed Cowbirds (no Rusty Blackbirds that I could pick out) and was alternately foraging on the ground and moving amoung the trees. It is difficult to estimate numbers with such a large and mobile target, but I can confidently say that there were at least 2,000 Red-wings, 800 Grackles, and 60 Cowbirds. Among the red-wings there were a few females (the males typically arrive first; the females much later) and many first - year males that, on first glance, looked like females. The flock was quite vocal, the volume overwhelming (much like an evening crow roost).

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Montezuma Today
Diane, Ken, and I took part in the Montezuma waterfowl count this morning. Our territory was Knox-Marsellus and Puddlers Marsh. Both areas were entirely ice-free and harbored a large number of birds. Several thousand Snow Geese took off from K-M as we arrived and flew north into the Mucklands. What remained was a good selection: Mallards and Black Ducks, Northern Pintail, Green-winged Teal and Northern Shovelers, Gadwall, American Wigeon and a single EURASIAN WIGEON. Also a dozen Tundra Swans, two Hooded Mergansers and a single Wood Duck.

None of the counters reported Sandhill Cranes. One of them had a single Common Loon at Kips Marsh.

On the way home we noted hundreds (if not thousands) of Tundra Swans in the water north of the RR tracks - and a huge flock of diving ducks at the north end of the lake, out from Harris Park in the Village of Cayuga.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Field Trip this Sunday
This Sunday I'll be leading a Cayuga Bird Club field trip up the lake. We'll meet 8am in the Lab of O parking lot, and plan to return by 4 or 5. Don't be fooled by this week's 60's temps: winter will be returning Sunday (30's and moderately windy), so dress warm. We'll make pit stops along the way for food and warmth.

As of now, the plan is to see if any of the snowy owls are still around (starting with the one on Indian Field Road), and see if the snow geese are gathering at the mucklands. We may also look for the gyrfalcon, depending on interest and time.

I think there's a good chance, not only that the 2 Black Vultures which Gary Kohlenberg & Ann Mitchell saw at 4:30 this afternoon at Woodsedge & Cayuga Vista are those which Meena Haribal saw around 2:30 at North Triphammer & Hillcrest Roads, but that they are also the same birds seen from the deck at the Lab of O between noon & 1pm by Tom Auer, Drew Weber and several others. Pretty cool!

It was a man who said the Ross’s Gull was back on Simon Pond today! He mentioned that it flew toward the Piercefield Flow. (A few of us wondered if that was where it went – we checked the Setting Pole Dam area several times, but no luck. Most of the Piercefield Flow area is inaccessible.) The man didn’t leave his name and I haven’t been able to reach him at his cell number. I’ll keep trying. His call came in at 2:30 p.m. Very exciting news!

The 2 BV's in Lansing were associated with a flock of 27 Turkey Vultures, including one with a white wingtip. We never saw them leave, west or north, so may be roosting somewhere in the area between the new Dollar General store on East Shore Dr., N. Triphammer Rd. and Asbury Rd.

Tomorrow it may be worthwhile to try and pick them up again.

To: "David S. Marsh" <dsmlmm...>


Hello Surveyors,



After seven surveys with temperatures in the 30’s one would expect winter
would soon descend on us. The 50 degree temperatures tonight, combined with
the presence of an amazing number of waterfowl, made the survey a spectacle
to witness. It was like being at the beach for surveyors, with very good
visibility and no wind as bonuses. For Raptors, the absence of snow cover
made it easier to hear and see prey. It was satisfying that we were able
to survey 19 sites, two more than last week, with 33 surveyors, the same
number as last week and one below the high mark for the season. A total of
99 Raptors were spotted, 16 higher than last week.



Four sites reported double digit sightings, Hidden Marsh-North (16), Main
Pool-North (14), Morgan Rd. (12), and Main Pool-South (10), with notable
numbers at Hidden Marsh-South (8), Route 31 Muck (7), Waugh (7), and
Sandhill Crane Unit (6). The Short-eared Owls (SEOW) were reported at
Hidden Marsh-North (5), Morgan Rd. (2), Main Pool-North (2), and Waugh (1).
The Main Pool area, collected the largest number of Northern Harriers
(NOHA), with Main Pool-North (8) and Main Pool-South (8) together
maintaining their reputation as the NOHA hangout. NOHA were also reported
at Hidden Marsh-North (3), Route 31 Muck (2), and one each at Hidden
Marsh-South, Carncross Rd., and the Sandhill Crane Unit. Bald Eagles (BAEA)
made an impressive showing at 12 of the total 19 sites, with reports of
birds sitting on some nests. Rough-legged Hawks (RLHA) continued their
unusually strong presence this season and sightings were only slightly
below last week. RLHAs were seen at Hidden Marsh-North (5), Morgan Rd. (2),
and one each at Hidden Marsh-South, Guy’s Marsh, Route 31 Muck, and U2
Fallow Field. Red-Tailed Hawk sightings were reported at 12 of the 19
sites. A Coopers Hawk (COHA) was reported, the first one seen since
November, and the first Peregrine Falcon (PEFA) of the season was spotted.



Winter Raptor surveyors are treated to much more than spotting birds of
prey fighting the elements to stay alive in a challenging climate.
Montezuma is life on the large screen. Tonight we were treated to ducks and
geese flying against a blazing sunset, huge crowds of Snow Geese looking
for a nighttime roost at sunset, waves of Canada Geese calling, swarms of
newly arrived Ducks, Swans bringing dignified beauty to the skies, and a
couple of skunks , not flying, busily looking for food. The night belonged
to waterfowl, and spring was in the air.



Highlights from tonight’s survey were:

SEOW: 10 this week (TW) vs. 12 last week (LW).

NOHA: 24 TW vs. 20 LW.

BAEA: 28 TW vs. 14 LW.

RLHA: 11 TW vs. 12 LW.

RTHA: 21 TW vs. 22 LW.



The SEOW trend continues above the prior three seasons. The NOHA sightings
tonight were above those of the previous seven survey nights, the trend is
up, however, the cumulative sightings lag those of last season at this
point.



Survey hats were presented to five more surveyors for assisting with at
least 10 surveys this season in recognition of their significant
contributions. Those receiving hats are (left to right in the attached
photo): Greg Karl, Sarah Lyons, Kyle Gage, Pete Saracino, and Maggie
Passmore. A total of 17 surveyors have earned hats this season. Applause
please!



Jackie Bakker fueled us up with her very delicious brownies. Thank you
Jackie. I will bring cookies next week unless someone else volunteers to
bring some treats. The next Survey is scheduled for March 1st, meeting at
the Refuge Offices at 4:45 pm. If you are planning on helping with the
survey, please e-mail me no later than 6:00 pm on February 28. Thank you
all for your time and dedication.



*David Marsh*

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Geese
Yesterday several large vees of both Snow Geese and Canada Geese flew north over the east shore of Cayuga Lake, quite high in the sky.
Many geese in one Snow group were dark in color
