Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Ellis Hollow/George Rd. Comm. Solar Proj. Pub. Hearing Wed April 26, 7 pm--or email comments
Dear Folks,

As you probably know, Distributed Sun is proposing several
large-scale Community Solar Projects in the Town of Dryden.
A public hearing is being held:

THIS WEDNESDAY, April 26, at 7 pm at the Neptune Fire Hall, 26 North
St., Dryden

Please consider attending and giving your comments on the project in
3 minutes (or less).

You also may email your comments on the project to:
<mailto:<BOARD--TOWNCLERK...><BOARD--TOWNCLERK...>

There are many reasons to support solar energy, of course--especially
community solar, and this company appears to have been at least
somewhat responsive to the concerns of neighbors. On the other hand,
the project will use a vast amount of open space, and trees will be
cut, including part of the evergreen stand on Dodge Rd. that is
precious to birders (and birds). Several people have suggested on
this listserv that the best placement of solar panels is on rooftops
and above parking lots--I love those ideas.

Since I moved to this area 35 years ago, I have watched open space
whittled away, piece by piece, and watched our rural landscapes
become less and less attractive, both to people and wildlife. Many
places I cherished are now gone. When will it stop? Should we have a
plan for making sure enough open space is left? How do we place a
value on open spaces?

Whatever your views, I hope you will express them. Below are links to
the most helpful information. If you spend 5 minutes looking at each
set of maps and 5 minutes reading the FAQ, you will have a pretty
good feel for the project--in 15 minutes.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Louisiana waterthrush
Late this morning at Chittenango Falls I spotted a Louisiana waterthrush. We were on the bridge at the base of the falls when the thrush flew into a low tree to the left of the bridge. We got really good looks at the thrush as it bobbed its tail constantly while in the tree. It then flew to the waters edge to the right of the bridge and began foraging.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] FWD: April 26, 'The Curious Mister Catesby,' opening lecture celebrating Mann Library's Mark Catesby exhibit
For lovers of Catesby bird illustrations!



[cid:<image004.jpg...>]The Curious Mister Catesby: A "Truly Ingenious" Naturalist Explores New Worlds
by Leslie Overstreet
Wednesday, April 26, at 4:00pm
Mann Library, Stern Seminar Room 160


Join us for a lecture by Leslie Overstreet, curator of Natural-History Rare Books at the Smithsonian Libraries. This event opens Mann Library's spring 2017 exhibit program<http://events.cornell.edu/event/Catesby> and is in conjunction with the Department of Plant Science's Horticulture Seminar Series featuring Mark Catseby's plant introductions and their impact on 18th century gardens.

English naturalist Mark Catesby (1683-1749) crossed the Atlantic to Virginia and after a seven-year stay, he returned to England with paintings of plants and animals he had studied. Impressed by his collection, several Fellows of the Royal Society sponsored his return to North America where he cataloged the flora and fauna of the Carolinas and the Bahamas by gathering seeds, specimens, compiling notes, and making watercolor sketches. His seminal work - The Natural History of Carolina, Florida, and the Bahama Islands - influenced giants in the history of science, from Audubon to Carl Linnaeus, and the plants he sent back to Europe changed horticulture on the continent immeasurably.

Overstreet, contributing author of the book The Curious Mister Catesby: A "Truly Ingenious" Naturalist Explores New Worlds (University of Georgia Press, March 2015), will talk about the historical and scientific significance of his findings.

Reception following the lecture.

This event is sponsored by Mann Library and the School of Integrative Plant Sciences.

For more information about the exhibit and related programs, see this week's Chronicle article: "Mann Library exhibit introduces naturalist Mark Catesby<http://www.news.cornell.edu/stories/2017/04/mann-library-exhibit-introduces-naturalist-mark-catesby>"

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Purple Finch Pretender!
Hi everyone,

I've been over at the Cornell Plantations Arboretum for the past couple of mornings, photographing Red-winged Blackbirds. but like all of us, I am hungry for some new migrants to show up, especially orioles! So after I packed my gear up. I took a walk around the arboretum and suddenly heard some high, clear whistled phrases repeated from a nearby tree. Oriole! NOPE! When I got on the singer, it was a male Purple Finch! He carried on pretending to be an oriole for a minute or so, then switched to his typical rollicking song.

Later on I found a Brown Thrasher singing. There has been what I presume is a Fish Crow there both mornings, giving its distinctive call. I saw it yesterday (yellow tag on right wing), but only heard it today. I guess at this time of year American Crow female begging calls can be mistaken for Fish Crow, but this guy is out and flying around. Although yesterday it did take some food into a conifer north of the sculpture garden.

And plenty of the usual suspects...

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Goldfinch behavior and Fall Creek Highlights- Correction
It was brought to my attention that maybe I did *not* see a Golden-WINGED
Warbler in my back yard; and then I realized I meant to write Golden-RUMPED
Warbler. Thank you, Dave Nutter, for keeping us (me) accurate!!! So easy
to make a slip of tongue, which carries through even when typing and had
recently been reading up on the plight of the Golden-winged Warbler.

Dave helped me identify a GRW feeding amongst the seeds in a mature Sugar
Maple in Fall of 2015, so I was very excited to see it back again, this
time in Spring, and surprised to see it on the ground close to me! Such a
beautiful bird!!! So beautiful, I had to paint it in a mural inside my
front porch. Will post today on Facebook bird club page if anyone wants to
see.

It's amazing how every year I learn new things about my back yard. I am
slowly learning to distinguish the difference between the mating call of a
Dark-eyed Junco from a Chipping Sparrow. Last year, these two were driving
me crazy as I thought I might have had a Pine or Palm Warbler calling
somewhere. Now I see that it's these two birds, and they sound similar at
times, but are very different. Also, how close or far away from me they
are, seems to alter what I perceive and how I hear it. (Kind of like the
ambulance siren effect? but the birds are not moving when they call their
mating call.) When close, the Chipping Sparrow sounds more like junco.
When farther away, more like a machine gun.... or maybe it's the other way
around? I don't know! But I'm slowly learning, and it's so much fun to
learn and read what you all are observing!

Two days ago, in the early evening, when the heavens opened up and heavy
rains fell steady, cold, and dreary, I was outside and ran to seek
shelter. As I entered my back porch, I turned around to watch the rain and
noticed several small birds fluttering in an amongst a tall and leaning
Norway Maple. My first thought was hummingbird because they appeared so
small with the naked eye and momentarily would hover, but I knew it was too
early for them.

Turns out they were five goldfinches looking for the best spot to wait out
the storm. Within a few moments, they settled down for the storm. I
watched them for about thirty minutes, and I noticed the following. One
brightly colored male took a position very close to the tree trunk. The
position was ideal as there was a limb immediately above him that protected
him from the rain like an umbrella. He looked quite content yet stared
intently at the female who perched about an inch or two from him. She
looked miserable and held a steady gaze back at him. I kept scanning the
tree and noticed others chose similar spots or spots with less rain
falling, but had to shake off water periodically. A few times, one or two
or three would take flight and settle somewhere else. There was one moment
where the first male lunged out and pecked at the female, who I think tried
to get closer to him and get more shelter. After that peck, she stayed put
and did not try again.

At the same time, a Chipping Sparrow caught my eye in the adjacent
crabapple tree. He also found an amazing shelter spot, similar to the
first male goldfinch I described (but better): in a nook where two limbs
were close together, one on top of the other, creating a nook and a
shelter. This sparrow stayed put through out the storm, rhythmically
looking left and right, and center. I did not see any other sparrows in
that tree until the rain lightened up. When the rain slowed down, there
was movement in both trees.

Other bird highlights in my yard I've seen/heard in past few days
(*photographed):
--at or below the feeder or in my garden: Golden-winged Warbler* (yes!),
Chipping Sparrows*, White-crowned Sparrows*, doves, grackles, juncoes,...
--passersby heard/nearby: kingfisher, Red-bellied Woodpecker, bluebird
--heard in higher tree tops of mature trees: titmouse, cardinal,
chickadees, ...
--missing for months: Pileated, Downy, and Hairy woodpeckers

I am so grateful for this birding community. My life is so much more rich
because of it. Thank you.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Stewart Park Highlights
Yesterday around 7pm, I saw three sandpipers on the rocky shore of Fall
Creek near the Cascadilla Boat house. I think they were juvenile Spotted
Sandpipers: bobbing tails, pink/orange bills with a dark tip on the bill,
thrush-like markings on the upper breast, soft peeping calls, flew off
toward Jetty Woods. Last year, they hung out on the jetty where the
concrete pebbles are loose.

After that, I watched the 154+ cormorants settling in for the night on the
top of the sycamores over at Jetty woods; I couldn't help but be curious
how a handful of them would suddenly leave their roost, bolting upstream
high above the creek, and then make a sharp u-turn near the bridges, and
then glide back to the roost. Then another handful would leave and do the
same thing. This went on for about twenty minutes, and I wondered if it
was just juveniles who did this; but then all of a sudden, the entire tree
load of cormorants (about 116, leaving the dead one which is still in the
tree) took off and did the exact same thing as the previous cormorants. It
seemed to me that they were enjoying the fun of flying as fast as they
could with the wind (upstream) and then gliding back on the wind.

I couldn't help by see how much that was a bit like the fun that can be had
when kayaking white water, but in reverse: paddle as hard as you can
against the current, then make a sharp u-turn, and go as fast as you can
with the current. Or even a bike: peddle hard up a long windy road, then
coast as fast as you can down the other side.

Subject: Re: [cayugabirds-l] N. Parula??? [was Prairie Warbler???]
Reports of rare birds (including those within range but early or late by the calendar) do not get incorporated into eBird's database so that they can be searched by species until they are reviewed and deemed credible, which can take a few days. But you can see rare bird reports before they are reviewed by subscribing to eBird's Rare Bird Alerts for any county or state.

The reports that I saw were by Chris Wood seen & heard along the old railroad grade east of Monkey Run Road (south), and by Brad Walker heard between the Woodleton Boardwalk and Sapsucker Woods Rd. Chris heads up the eBird program and I believe is one of the reviewers for Tompkins County. He also provided a detailed description of the bird's plumage & song so that any reviewer would recognize it. Anyway when he gets around to it, it will surely be added to the database. Brad, another expert birder who works at the Lab of O, included a description of the song he heard which was also enough to ID the bird.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Brown Thrasher
Our foy BROWN THRASHER showed up at 5:45pm. It was rooting in the layer
of mulch along our garden fence line.

For those curious about the PIGEON that had been in our yard for the
past couple of days, I finally caught the bird and took it to the Janet
Swanson (Cornell) Wildlife Rehab. Center off of Snyder Hill Rd. To the
untrained eye the bird looked healthy. However, it couldn't fly very
far, so we assumed it had a damaged wing. When examined by a
veterinarian, it turns out the bird was emaciated. When I left the
center, a rehab person was holding it in a towel and letting it munch
away on a cup of seed. It was a racing pigeon. There was no charge to
drop the bird off with them. I felt compelled to make a donation!

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Broad-wings
Out in the yard pretending to garden, I looked up in response to the call of a Broad-winged Hawk, and saw what I always do at about this time in April. A nice Broad-wing, fairly low, making what I interpret as a territorial flight. After sailing about and calling for several minutes he(?) dropped down into the Maple Avenue ravine (traditional nest area). Five minutes later he was up soaring and calling again, and a second Broad-wing appeared. Maybe a mate, or perhaps a challenger...

Hi Karen,

Field Sparrow can give that impression, because its song too is delivered in accelerando, sometimes even with a slight rise in pitch. If you have the Audubon Birds app, you can compare Track #3 for both species to see what I mean.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Cayuga Bird Club Derby Hill trip
Greetings,

This coming Sunday, the 23ed I will be leading a trip to Derby Hill Hawk
watch, located just north of Mexico, N.Y, on Lake Ontario. We will meet
at the north parking area at the Lab of Ornithology at 7 AM, to car pool.

We will plan to stop on the way for rest stop/food & drinks. Please
dress for the weather. Right "now" the chance of rain is fairly low.
Bring water and snacks or your own food. We will plan to return by 4 PM.

We are approaching the time period when Broadwing Hawk migration should
be peaking, and there can be a good variety of other
hawks/eagles/songbirds coming through. From the north lookout, one can
look out over Lake Ontario for waterfowl. It is always dependent on
the winds that day what might be seen.

Questions? Please Email me at <gjb5...> or call 607-227-3970.

Good birding,

Gladys Birdsall

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Sapsucker Woods, Tues 4/18
On Tuesday morning, I watched 14 American Crows trying to persuade a GREAT
HORNED OWL to volunteer to give up its perch in the hemlocks by the East
Trail gate. Eventually, the crows re-accommodated the owl to another dense
hemlock stand in the center of the East Trail loop. Alas, they were now so
far from the trail that I could hardly see the crows, let alone the owl.
But probably anyone on the whole east side of the sanctuary could have
heard the crows continuing relentlessly to blame the owl for at least half
an hour.



This was the first Great Horned Owl that I’ve found by day on any of my
countless trips to Sapsucker Woods. The owl’s first perch was also
probably the lowest I’ve ever seen for this species – probably only about
6-8 feet off the ground.



Other highlights include a bright yellow BLUE-HEADED VIREO singing by the
Severinghaus Trail gate and a HERMIT THRUSH near the shelter on the East
Trail.



For at least a couple of weeks, one AMERICAN WOODCOCK has been displaying
in the weedy field north of the overflow parking lot of the YMCA in south
Lansing, near Ciao! and BJ’s. I find that this bird is a little easier to
spot during takeoff and descent than usual, maybe because of the lighting
or the small size of the plot. But you’ll probably need your binoculars if
you want to watch the whole display flight against the dark sky. Most
nights, I hear just one woodcock here, but last night I heard a second far
to the north, plus this first woodcock’s echo against the wall of the Y.

Timing is everything! As I was heading to the compost, a foy

more, then fell silent. A short time later, as I glanced out the
kitchen window, I saw our foy FLICKER. The bird remained in the yard
for a very short time, and then flew off. Timing is everything!!!!

From: Mark Chao <markchao...>
Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Sapsucker Woods and Edwards Lake Cliff Preserve, Sat 4/15 and Sun 4/16
I found a couple of target birds this weekend (BROWN THRASHER at entrance
of Edwards Lake Cliff Preserve on Sunday, three HERMIT THRUSHES along the
East Trail in Sapsucker Woods on Saturday). But the best moments came
from common species doing uncommon things.



* Along the Woodleton Boardwalk on Saturday, I watched a female American
Robin repeatedly issuing an unfamiliar * kheeeeeeee *. Later I found a
study saying that robins make this sound specifically when they see aerial
predators. This surprised me because I felt certain that I had triggered
the call, given how this bird and her mate fixed their gaze on me the whole
time. I flatter myself that a bird might think I’m a predator, but I am
100 percent sure that no one would ever mistake me as aerial. So maybe the
paper’s conclusion is wrong. Or maybe there was a hawk or owl perched
nearby, seen by the birds but not by me.



It was all very mysterious and enlightening. But mainly that sound was
just beautiful – long, luminous, extremely high, exquisitely pianissimo.
It was as if she were a violinist coaxing a pristine final note out of her
E string, fragile and tender and masterly, while I listened from my seat in
a hushed concert hall.



* Several of the eponymous Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers of Sapsucker Woods
have found fantastic resonant substrates to bang on. Maybe the best is a
hollow cylinder of a former tree near the East Trail gate. Today a male
had been knocking loudly here for a while, when a white-throated sapsucker
with a brownish back flew in to the top of the trunk, about six feet
above. The white-throated bird double-tapped, paused for a long time, then
double-tapped again. The red-throated male stayed silent and still, eyeing
the bird above, then let out another full stuttering, slowing cadence. The
white-throated bird responded with a full decelerating phrase. Then the
first bird chased the second one out of view.



At the time I wasn’t sure what all this meant. I knew that female
sapsuckers have white throats, but I didn’t remember whether first-spring
male sapsuckers ever also have white throats. I also wasn’t sure if female
sapsuckers ever drum. As I watched, I thought that maybe the red-throated
male might be similarly confused. Was this a rival male, not yet in his
full colors? Or was it an interested potential mate?



A little research reveals that the most likely answer is neither.
Apparently the white throat does definitively indicate a female. Females
do sometimes drum. So when this female flew in, the male was probably
thinking, “Either she wants me, or she wants this drumming surface for
herself.” Too bad for him this time.



* The green pond by the shelter on the East Trail always seems to have Wood
Ducks in it. Today I managed to approach very slowly without flushing one
female. She drifted in the open water, issuing single “hwaak” notes.
Eventually she flew up to a branch, where she bowed forward a few times and
issued an unfamiliar, more forced sound. More reading indicates that these
vocalizations signal availability to potential mates. She did seem a
little lonely.



Finally, an off-topic note – the trails of the Edwards Lake Cliff Preserve
were rife with big beautiful snails on Sunday morning. Miyoko and I found
more than 150 of them without even looking very widely or carefully. As
Miyoko said, it was like an Easter egg hunt, but even better.

Last night at sunset two nice alternate RED-NECKES GREBES accompanied a
flotilla of 11 Horned Grebes on Dryden Lake. Not sure if they'll still be
there this morning, but it might be worth checking.

Daughter, Becky, & I, got to see them late yesterday afternoon. What a
treat. Also had one pied-billed grebe & a kingfisher. Disappointed to
not see any mergansers. A fisherman said he had seen 2 bald eagles at
the far east end but didn't know where the nest was. Has anyone seen
a nest?

Lake Como was VERY quiet/calm but we did see a kingfisher in a tree in
the swamp.

Hi Sandy,

I saw that bird two days ago, when it was still alive. It got stuck with its wing in one of the branches. Apparently it hasn't managed to free itself and this morning I saw it hanging dead too ...

This bird had what looked to me like breeding plumage (black tufts on top of head). I could not see any orange and not sure if that was because of the angle. Do birds lose their color after death? If so, how long is it before the color starts to diminish?

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Red flickers in New York
I didn't see John's reported Red-shafted Flicker, and therefore cannot comment definitively, but to my knowledge, there are no confirmed occurrences of the Red-shafted form of Northern Flicker in New York, or of actual hybrids of Red-shafted X Yellow-shafted birds or "intergrades."


But, there are plenty of flickers with red in their flight feathers. They have nothing to do with the western form of flicker. Instead, they're an increasingly common result of the environmentally-caused changes in birds resulting from the spread of exotic honeysuckles. It's the same phenomenon that creates orange tail tips in Cedar Waxwings.


See the recently published article, based in part on specimens in the Cornell University Museum of Vertebrates that I helped prepare over the last 30 years:

doi: http://dx.doi.org/10.1642/AUK-16-63.1
Hudon, et al. 2017
Diet explains red flight feathers in Yellow-shafted Flickers in eastern North America


IMHO, it's more interesting than a wayward migrant out of range!


Best,


Kevin

The red-tail is in a nest near the top of tall White Pine in East Lawn Cemetery, about 100 m north of the nearest edge of hawthorn orchard, and about 40 m up main entrance into cemetery from MItchell Rd.


I walked through the area because of a Merlin nest two years ago, and hoping for another. Now that there is a nesting red-tail, I'm pretty sure that the red-tail would eat the Merlin, particularly a bird on the nest while incubating, and that there would never be a Merlin nest there.


Win some, loose some.


Good birding


PS. This morning I saw a Red-shafted Flicker in the City Cemetery (west of North Campus) near the center from east to west but on the southern edge. Probably a migrant, but it could stay around for a while. Incidentally, I didn't hear/see a Merlin although Andy Zepp has been hearing one in that location.

Daughter, Becky, & I, got to see them late yesterday afternoon. What a
treat. Also had one pied-billed grebe & a kingfisher. Disappointed to
not see any mergansers. A fisherman said he had seen 2 bald eagles at
the far east end but didn't know where the nest was. Has anyone seen
a nest?

Lake Como was VERY quiet/calm but we did see a kingfisher in a tree in
the swamp.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Purposed birding and nature observation site
Hi All,

Please watch the attached video and message from Bob Beck supporting
the proposed extension of the Jim Schug trail, from Dryden to the East
Ithaca Recreation Way. When complete the trail will provide access to
many otherwise nearly inaccessible top shelf birding and general nature
observation sites and opportunities, as well as a safe footpath and bike
way connecting Dryden to Ithaca and its large network of trails.

You can voice your support for the trail and the many opportunities it will
provide birders and naturalists by voting once a day until May,12. Please
do so. We can use all the help we can get. $50,000 to $100,000 would
go a long way towards making this project a reality.

Best,
Bard

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Migrants around home
I went out at 5:45 for the pre-dawn chorus. The temperature was 32 degrees F. From my place on Tupper Road I walked a few hundred yards over to Beech Hill Brook in the Lindsay-Parsons Preserve, hoping for some Hermit Thrushes. On my way I passed several Eastern Towhees that were exchanging "chewink" calls. When I got to the brink of the ravine, the falls below were making a lot of noise, and I couldn't hear any Hermits, but from downstream I caught the distant ringing song of a Louisiana Waterthrush, proclaiming in the traditional nesting territory. So I walked down that way to enjoy it up close. I was pretty happy to find it there, because the flood of 2015 had scoured the gorge severely, and I'm not sure that nesting even took place last year.

I crossed the brook and ascended to "the back stairs" (local nickname for steep, narrow Beech Hill Road). There I found a single Yellow-rumped Warbler singing in the hemlocks, but no Hermit Thrushes yet. At the second "landing" (think stairs again) I turned west, descended to the stream and climbed up the other side to reach the Danby/Newfield town line and cross back into my own property. In a grove of spruces there I finally heard a Hermit Thrush, and found a Ruby-crowned Kinglet too, probably the same one that showed up there yesterday.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Palm Warbler at Swan Pond, Stewart Pk, Ithaca
After an early evening meeting at City Hall there was still daylight, so I biked to Stewart Park. Ann Mitchell wrote that she had seen a Yellow-rumped Warbler at the Swan Pond this morning, so I looked very carefully. I kept hearing a vague trill, always from the opposite side. Finally on my second circuit I found a warbler, but instead it was a Palm Warbler, perched in bushes beside the lake, bobbing its tail constantly. Although the light was getting poor, I could see a yellow wash all below, strongest on the throat through upper central breast, but the markings on the side of the breast did not seem rufous, so I don't know whether it qualifies as Eastern. Some years I have had trouble tracking down a Palm Warbler, so I feel particularly fortunate finding an apparent year first for the basin.

Sharp looking female American Robin took long streamers of grasses and tried for log-sized goldenrod stalks to a nice solid crotch in an small ash this morning. I have seen more action in the nest site this evening.

A Phoebe tried to fly into our garage, which I take as a nest site seeking sign.

And our FOY Chipping Sparrow is at the feeder, while the Tree Sparrows, here two days ago, are apparently absent.

I've been visiting Myers Point occasionally in the mornings before work. I

Last Friday in wind and sleet, including an early Lesser Yellowlegs
(subsequently seen by many over the weekend), Bank and Cliff swallows, and
five migrating Red-throated Loons:
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S35755309

Yesterday in the sun, with a large group of Bonaparte's Gulls and the first
Common Tern of the year:

And today, fairly slow with fewer Bonaparte's but my first CASPIAN TERNS
and a nice GREATER YELLOWLEGS on the spit:
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S35870058

We had our first BROAD-WINGED HAWK of the year over Sapsucker Woods
yesterday at noon, as well as a pair of adult BALD EAGLES and a few migrant
COMMON LOONS. A WILSON'S SNIPE was displaying over the marsh past the far
parking lot here at the Lab last night, as well as two distant AMERICAN
WOODCOCKS. YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLERS appeared in quite a few spots yesterday,
as well as Brown Thrashers, Eastern Towhees, Field and Chipping sparrows,
and Blue-headed Vireos.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Yellow rumped warbler
We took an evening stroll at Sapsucker Woods this evening.
Aside from the deafening but delighfful spring peepers which were our
reason to go, highlights were 2 phoebes, one yellow-rumped warbler, one
very busy beaver and two huge turtles trolling in the shallowy mud. It is
beautiful there.

Subject: RE:[cayugabirds-l] Any RB Mergs at Aurora? - thanks!
Hi all,

Many thanks to everyone who replied.
I did find Red-breasted Mergansers at Aurora Boathouse today... I'd estimate about 50 to the south of the boathouse when I first arrived, but then they spread out into small groups later in the morning.
I was after shots of them displaying, which they were doing a lot. Here's a link to my best (=closest) shot of the morning (I was there nearly 3 hours and this was the closest they came).

http://marieread.photoshelter.com/gallery-image/Red-breasted-Merganser/G0000lVEsHq9kUfk/I0000d.HU0n0wEUc/C0000gPnR25d.5jw

Also there:
Common Mergansers
Horned Grebe in handsome plumage
Common Loon (ditto)
Belted Kingfisher (heard only)

And back at home, a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker has arrived and started drumming on the exact same tree limb that one has used in past years. Maybe the same individual? Anyway, he will be photographed in due course!

Hi all,

I'm thinking of heading to Aurora tomorrow in search of Red-breasted Mergansers. Has anyone checked the boathouse lately, and if so did you see any
RB Mergs?

Hey all

Just a reminder about ongoing weekend walks at Sapsucker Woods, Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology. Walks are at 7:30 both Saturday and Sunday morning.

Binoculars available for loan. Meet at the front door of the Visitors Center.

Led by members of the Cayuga Bird Club. Targeted towards beginners but great for everyone.

Hi,

Gina spotted our first purple finch of the year this AM. They nest in the Norway Spruces next door.

We also had our first male goldfinch in full breeding plumage at a feeder today. Before today the yellow feathers were sparse and not particularly attractive. Then today, as if a new species had arrived, We were treated to the shocking yellow of our first "yellowbird" of the spring.
"The yellow birds are back" was the very predictable announcement , each spring, of a charming, now deceased couple in Dryden. Knowing that I like birds they would give me a call as soon as they saw their first "yellowbird". I never had the heart to tell them that the dull, mostly greenish birds at their feeder all winter were were winter plumage "yellowbirds".

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] NE Ithaca, Fri 4/7
This morning, I saw a BROWN THRASHER singing in our yard in suburban
northeast Ithaca. I think it was the first thrasher I’ve ever found on our
street.



Not far away in the yard, a pair of EASTERN BLUEBIRDS has started to build
a nest in the same box where a pair successfully raised four young last
year. Last weekend, the male was cleaning out pieces of last year’s nest.
On Wednesday and Thursday, the female made several trips to the nest with
new material. She seemed to waste a lot of energy trying to jam very long
stiff twigs crosswise through the box opening. But a few did bend enough
to get through.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] 2017 Cayuga Lake Basin First Records list
Hi all,

As many of you know, for several years I have continued the longstanding tradition of listing the species of birds found in the Cayuga Lake Basin during the calendar year in the order that they have been found. The list, thanks to Paul Anderson, is on the Cayuga Bird Club website here:

http://www.cayugabirdclub.org/Resources/cayuga-lake-basin-first-records

We are barely a quarter into the year and the list stands at 152, which is around half the species typically found in a whole year.
We have yet to see the push of birds from Latin America - most shorebirds and neotropical songbirds. Maybe this is a good time for a quick review.

Please take a look at the list. Have I missed any species? Are there species which were found earlier? Are there observers in a finding party whom I've omitted? Are there additional independent finders of a species on the same day? Is a location poorly or incorrectly described (I try to include a road and township but not anyone's personal address)? Did I screw up other ways?

There are a few reports which I did not include (yet):

Chipping Sparrow was reported earlier, but I only included the first report I saw which was a visual ID, because their song is similar to Dark-eyed Junco which has been singing in our area for awhile.

Cattle Egret was mentioned secondhand in a summary of rarities at Montezuma. It's so unexpected that there's only one April eBird record for Seneca County (also lacking details) and one for May, with none for January, February or March. Without details or an observer to ask, I can't say whether it was distinguished from Great Egret which is expected to show up at this time.

Eastern Wood-Pewee was reported from "near the lake" up to a mile from Cornell's north campus, which could be Cayuga or Beebe Lake. It is a month before this species is expected back, and neotropical migrants tend not to suddenly appear that early. The ID was by sound only, and European Starlings, which are singing now, are known to include mimicry. I'd want a visual confirmation for this ID.

Henslow's Sparrow was reported from an unmowed field in northwestern Tompkins County. This is quite a rarity in this part of New York State in the past several decades, although one or more sang from a hayfield at the south edge of the Town of Ithaca for much of last summer. The habitat in this report sounded plausible. The time of day (dusk) that it was heard was typical. The date was the same that many were first reported heard in their usual Midwest range. But it was an anonymous eBird report from private land not close to a road. There was only the assurance from someone whose experience is unknown that the sound was like recordings of the species, insect-like with long pauses. I was hoping that to confirm this rarity someone from eBird would get permission to go to the site, listen, record if possible, and verify the ID, even if the landowner does not want to be known or give permission to any other birders to enter. It would be good to know if this rare and declining species is coming back to our area.

By the way, the Cayuga Lake Basin was defined in a 1925 botany textbook by Wiegand and Eames. In the south its boundary is straightforward: if the land drains directly to Cayuga Lake, it's in the Basin. In the north, the Basin gets complicated. Land which drains to Seneca Lake first before entering the Seneca River and Cayuga Lake out. But land which drains north or south into the Erie Canal, Clyde River, or Seneca River between a couple of somewhat arbitrary points to the east and west is in the Basin. Land which drains north to Lake Ontario instead of the Seneca River is out. The result is that the Montezuma Wetlands Complex, including Howland Island, is in. W&E's map shows several creeks and ponds that help define the basin. The map used to be posted somewhere, and there's a modern version in the book Birding in the Cayuga Lake Basin.

Anyway, you're looking for indoor amusement on a rainy evening, have a look at the list of what's been found so far. It's impressive.

Thanks for the gold star, Sandy! The location and especially the fine
folks from in and around the Lab of O made the meeting really special for
us.

While they aren't available yet, it is EBBA's intention to make the talks
accessible online by way of posting narrated powerpoint presentations on
YouTube. Links to the talks from last year's meeting are on our website
and can be seen here:
http://www.easternbirdbanding.org/about-ebba/ebba-meetings/. If you keep
checking the page periodically, I imagine you'll soon find this year's
talks as well.

Hope to see you all in Maine next year, in Rochester the year after, or
just kicking around the birding trails some time in between!

Handsome EASTERN TOWHEE and possibly 2 FIELD SPARROWS at my ground bird food area just now.
Field Sparrows scared away by squirrel before I could really study them, but there was definitely no dark spot on their chests as for Tree Sparrows. Bill looked pink.

I have often had Tree Sparrows here until recently.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] to Montezuma and back again
It was a greyish day, but still lots of good sightings. Total of 43 species between 8 and 4. Started at Myers with a juvenile red-tailed hawk sitting on one of the "campsites". A pair of ospreys on the lakeside of Salt Point demonstrated how to collect sticks for nesting material as a pair of kingfishers dived along the stream. Saw several kestrels on the power lines along 90 as we approached Union Springs - highlights of buffleheads and redheads at Factory Pond and the later roadside pond near the school. More of the "usuals" appeared as we neared River Rd. at the north end of Cayuga Lake: cormorant, ring-necked ducks, and great blue herons. Montezuma visitor center and wildlife drive yielded Northern shovelers, blue winged and green winged teal, coots, gadwalls, American widgeon,swan sp. in the distance and a pair of northern harriers hunting over the main pool. Along East Rd., and later along 31, pintails joined the rafts of waterfowl along with several pairs of Am. black ducks. We spent a short time at the MAC in Savannah, but the starlings were the only residents of the purple martin house today. LOTS of water and no sandhill cranes on Carncross, but we did find another pair of hunting northern harriers at Martens Tract as well as phoebes nesting under the observation platform there. Had only seen one bald eagle at the Visitor Center earlier, so we checked on Armitage Rd where one adult head was visible peering out of the nest. Also revisited Mudlock and think we saw where the eagles there were building a new nest after losing their previous one in last month's heavy windstorm. A quick trip back down the east side of the Lake gave us views of a pair of wood ducks at Factory Pond, several small groups of red breasted mergansers, one common merganser pair, a group of 16 double crested cormorants, many pairs of buffleheads, and finally 3 common loons. Plus the many robins, grackles, red winged blackbirds, rock doves, mourning doves, mockingbirds etc. that we passed in yards and trees along the way. Many thanks to Chris Lajewski who filled us in on all the recent happenings and sightings of the Audobon Center and Montezuma in general during the past few weeks. Thankful for a homeschool day-on-the-road.Colleen Richards

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Cayuga Bird Club April meeting
Next Monday, April 10, will be the next monthly meeting of the Cayuga Bird Club. Bruce Smith and Katherine [Kit] Muma, will give their presentation, "Kiwis and Kokakos: Wildlife Conservation in New Zealand". Although they have both been on faculty in the Biology Dept. at Ithaca College, Bruce retired 3 years ago. His courses included Animal Behavior; Aquatic Ecology; and Parasites and Vectors of Disease. Among the courses Kit has taught are Field Ornithology, and Bird Brains and Mind Games: Animal Consciousness. They spent parts of their last two sabbatical leaves in New Zealand.
New Zealand bird species evolved in isolation, remote from any other significant land masses and virtually without terrestrial mammals. Consequently, the bird fauna was poorly adapted for the onslaught of mammalian predators that came with human settlement, first with the Maori people and later with European colonists. A significant proportion of the woodland species went extinct and many of the remaining ones are few in number and isolated on offshore island or remote patches of native forest.
New Zealand, however, is a world leader in conservation, and has brought a number of their species back from the brink of extinction. Join us for an evening of video and still photography of birds of New Zealand, and a discussion of the challenges they face.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. All are welcome.There will be no speaker dinner before the Club meeting.
See you all on Monday.

to learn more about it and see if I would want to do the training. I was
impressed by the passion and comradry of this group and left with a great
appreciation for all the people who put in tens of thousands of hours
laying the foundation of what seems to be our modern day "citizen science."
A few of these members had recently passed, and they were honored as were
living members who made huge contributions.

The speakers list was rich and varied and intense at times with
back-to-back presentations (4-5 in the morning 4-5 in the afternoon). Most
presenters seemed to be leaders of bird banding stations and were sharing
innovations in banding technique and/or interesting observations or how
they solved different challenges.

One of the presenters was a couple from the Westchester county who
described all of the places a saw-whet owl would sleep or hunt. It was
fascinating because it would spend a lot of time in places you would not
expect: behind a large shopping plaza parking lot, crossing four lane
expressways nightly, clusters of 3-5 tall evergreen trees, and down in
tangles where it would wait for a mouse. I loved seeing how they paid
attention to the type of tree the bird preferred and percent of time found
in that tree or perched low on a tangle where there was nothing growing
making for easy hunting....

Another highlight was hearing about the conservation efforts of a Lab of O
student (Santos) and his work/results tagging a very large Chilean
woodpecker. He shared a lot of data and video footage...even footage of a
woodpecker murdering (yes, murdering) another woodpecker of its own species
and how those woodpecker manage their territories and locating their
territories.

I have misplaced my notes from the meeting, but I hope that gives you a
sense of the meeting. If you are interested, next year's meeting will be
in June 2018 in Acadia! Accommodations sound very affordable, and the
food there is excellent!

I have an extra copy of the October to December 2016 North American Bird
Bander peer-reviewed journal if anyone wants it. I can bring it to the
next Monday meeting or arrange for a downtown pick up.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Ithaca Ospreys, etc.
A few days ago a new Osprey platform was installed on a pole along the east side of the Flood Control Channel on the north side of AJ Foreign Auto on Cherry Street, about here: 42.438, -76.516. Some nearby trees were cut down, and the platform was baited heartily with large bushy branches. I haven't seen any Ospreys at it yet as I bike home from work.

This afternoon I got off work a bit early and biked to the lakeshore at Treman Marine State Park. I had seen one Osprey on the platform in Union Field as I passed, and then I saw an Osprey flying east toward Jetty Woods. I don't know if either was among the 4 Ospreys flying around together over the marina a few minutes later. Two of them alit on the platform in the middle of the field north of the marina. There was still one on that platform when an Osprey (don't know which one) flew to the ground in another part of the field, grabbed two fistfuls of dead grass and flew east. Later it appeared that such dead grass had been put in the platform at the northwest corner of Newman Golf Course, but I didn't see anyone on that platform nor on the platform north of the Hangar Theatre. An adult Bald Eagle was perched in the trees west of the Hog Hole west of the marina about this time.

In the morning during a brief stop at Stewart Park I heard and saw one Osprey flying over Jetty Woods apparently irritated by an immature Bald Eagle. Shortly afterward I saw two eagles, an adult and an immature, perched in trees near the north point of Jetty Woods.

As I was leaving the marina area this afternoon I saw a male Merlin fly over the marina and begin diving repeatedly. It was a long time before I saw the object of his attention: my first-of-year sighting of a Barn Swallow. Both birds were probably hungry and desperate, and they expended a lot of energy, but after several minutes the Merlin left without any food.

Other nice sightings this afternoon included a male Rusty Blackbird in the swamp and an immature Bonaparte's Gull on the lake a short distance north of the white lighthouse. On my morning stop at Stewart Park there had been at least 4 Bonaparte's Gulls flying in that area: an immature, a breeding plumage adult, and a couple of winter plumage adults.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] New Birds
I spent last night at Martens Tract in order to record the various ducks feeding/courting there. A major bonus of being there in the evening, then at first light this morning, was the encounter with several recently-returned birds.

An AMERICAN BITTERN called several times from the reeds along the south dike at Martens. I flushed a WILSONS SNIPE from the marsh straight east from the parking area. There was a SWAMP SPARROW singing along Carncross Road, and four GREATER YELLOWLEGS feeding at the edge of the flooded cornfield there.

The most amazing sight was a massive flock of blackbirds that flew over the marsh at dusk to roost in the trees along the river next to Howland Island. I tried to count as they flew over - and got lost. My best guestimate was 10,000 birds (which prompted eBird to remark that that was the high count for that location!)

On the way home this morning I stopped to scan the lake from the Aurora Boathouse. Along with some 35 Common Loons, there was a single RED-NECKED GREBE fairly far out.

Yesterday, Sunday, late afternoon at Myers- Salt Point, an Osprey sat for a while on each of the two nest boxes. The bird had a completely unmarked breast- male? It took off heading north last I saw.

Several Song Sparrows back on territory there, and a flock of at least 100 Tree Swallows came over and left heading north along the shore.

Subject: Re: [cayugabirds-l] Rose-breasted Grosbeak
Hi Matt,

Yes, I think that is very likely, and I probably mis-id'ed this bird. I did
not note the bold markings typical of the female R-b Grosbeak. In my haste
to pin it down I eliminated the House FInch and completely lapsed on the
Purple Finch.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Union Springs Ospreys
This a.m. I noticed our NYSEG ospreys on Number one Rd. are back. One
was on the nest & the other on the perch pole. I suspect they have been
back a few days but I hadn't been able to walk up the hill to check.
Becky had checked the nest on Fri. evening & saw nothing but it may have
been too dark. Always thrilling to have them fly over the yard.

Several days ago I saw a crow carrying a stick to a large, nearby,
spruce tree. Our family of 5 crows have split up & now, as usual, we
have three always together. This has been going on for at least 15 yrs.

Not much activity out on the lake from Frontenac Park or at the ponds.
The large rafts of ducks are gone. Becky was pleased to have Marie Read
as a customer at Surefine this a.m..

Asher,
Is there any chance that the bird you saw this morning might have been a similar-looking female Purple Finch? Purple Finch is a classic early April migrant here in the Ithaca area, whereas Rose-breasted Grosbeaks typically arrive back here in late April or early May. This eBird map for Rose-breasted Grosbeak for Mar-Apr 2017 shows that the vast majority of records are from Central America:

That's right: Miller Creek joins Michigan Creek 1/2 mile south of the Spencer Lake dam. The combined waters are afterwards named Catatonk Creek on USGS maps. It flows south and east, gathering other waters, until it joins with Owego Creek and empties into the Susquehanna.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Winter Wrenwick, Stewart Ave Redtail, etc
Hung out for a few midday hours at Stewart Park on this beautiful sunny day.

In the morning a juvenile bald eagle was perched over the lagoon, giving good looks to SFO groups, other birders and photographers, and passers-by alike. Meanwhile across the way the osprey continued adding sticks to its nest. Yesterday our SFO group saw a Canada goose on the next platform briefly before the osprey shooed it off and buzzed it a couple times in the water.

In the lagoon was a pair of relaxed Hooded Mergansers while a third flashy male would come in frequently looking for trouble, with the first pair's male telling it to leave - via chasing but not hood-flashing. Soon I spotted a female fly out of the nest box just northeast of the first suspension bridge, and before long the flashy male came in to make unwanted advances at that female, with multiple unsuccessful long chases. Later a presumably different male came in and hung out more amiably with that female, and this pair also hung out rather amiably with the first couple. So, it looks like one female is occupying that nest box (something to keep an eye on), and I'm wondering/conjecturing whether the other couple have agreed to some sort of nest-sharing agreement.

I walked up Renwick Woods along fall creek and sat at the lagoon opposite the fire training structures, and heard exactly one bout of a winter wren's intricate song. When I walked back, I heard some nasal chip calls (reminiscent of red-bellied woodpecker) accompanying some mouse-like scurrying around a woodpile, but could never get a binocular view of the bird to confirm that it was the winter wren.

Earlier in the day I'd stopped by the Stewart Avenue bridge over Fall Creek to see a red-tailed hawk sitting in the nest, presumably incubating.

From: Christopher Wood <chris.wood...>
Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Sapsucker Woods Acoustic Monitoring Project
Good afternoon everyone,

The Bioacoustics Research Program and Information Science team at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology are collaborating on an initiative that we are calling the Sapsucker Woods Acoustic Monitoring Project (SWAMP) to understand the complimentary roles of acoustic monitoring and eBirding to develop novel ways of understanding bird distribution and abundance.

We need your help. Many of you are already eBirding around Sapsucker Woods – in the last three days alone there have been more than 100 checklists submitted from various sites around Sapsucker Woods. All eBirding around Sapsucker Woods this spring will help with this research. We ask that you also consider stationary counts at the 10 sites around Sapsucker Woods. You will find these sites on eBird and linked to in the map below, which are called Sapsucker Woods Avi1, Sapsucker Woods Avi2 . . . through Sapsucker Woods Avi10.

All you need to do is visit these locations referenced in the map below, submit at least one short stationary checklist, and join in the fun. Each checklist you submit, earns you one more chance to win prizes, fame, and glory. The project starts tomorrow, 1 April 2017. We’ll be collecting this information until at least 1 July 2017.

This page has all the information you need:
http://ebird.org/content/ebird/avicaching/swamp/

Here are some additional details.

About the Science
The Cornell Lab deployed 30 in-house developed acoustic recorders (called SWIFT) which are configured to continuously monitor the soundscape in the Sapsucker Woods Sanctuary. Each of the units records acoustic data at 48 kHz sampling rate covering the frequency of all bird calls occurring in SWS. Scientific objectives we hope to address through this study are briefly outlined below:

* Ecology of vocalizations. The sensor array at Sapsucker Woods will allow us to get a better handle on variation in behavior/activity/song rates as a function of a variety of factors such as the time of day, Julian Date, and weather. Comparing these with eBird submissions will also allow us to understand how these influence detection rates using two types of methods (acoustic, and eBird).
* Bird Habitat usage. The collected acoustic data will be used to model heterogeneity in detectability of different bird species in SWS with high temporal and spatial resolution.
* Noise impact assessment. The collected data will allow us to assess how noise originating from Highway 13 traffic and the airport (aircraft operations including engine ignition, takeoff and landing) propagates throughout the sanctuary. We furthermore want to study how the propagation of sound varies with environmental conditions (weather, vegetation etc.), and if the anthropogenic noise impacts the vocal behavior of birds in the SWS.
* Acoustic biodiversity study. The Cornell Lab is currently working with several national and international partners on the development of new acoustic analysis techniques to extract biodiversity and ecosystem health information from acoustic data. Visual bird surveys with avicaching and general eBird submissions for the SWS will be crucial to groundtruth our results. The dense array of recorders, the extended recording period, and many checklist submissions from eBird will provide us with the best possible data set to tackle this research project!
* Automated Sound ID. The data will also be used within the scope of a new Cornell Lab project, BirdVox, which aims to develop advanced methods for the detection and classification of bird vocalizations.

Where do I go?
Check out the locations here.<http://ebird.org/ebird/avicache/home> If you want to load a map on your phone for easier navigation, here’s the Google Map link<https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/view?mid=1XUo5FDzHAA1g3AIMnsJlVJQmwoc&ll=42.47731956477846%2C-76.45099015&z=17>. And, of course, these locations are also visible in eBird mobile on iOS and Android when you submit checklists.

Scoring
You will earn one point each time you visit an SWAMP avicache and submit a complete, stationary checklist of 5-60 minutes duration.

Prizes and Rankings
Each point enters your name once into a random drawing for a prize. For example, if you submit 10 qualifying checklists, you have 10 points, and ten chances to win. If you have 100 checklists, that’s 100 points = 100 times. There will be two winners drawn from participants; each of the prize winners will have the choice of a free eBird t-shirt or ballcap and there will be a special surprise thrown in as well.
There is also a ranking for the most species seen in Avicache locations: a Top 100 for the cumulative Avicache list. The eBirder who reports the highest species list from all Avicaches cumulatively through the end the Avicaching period will win in the species category. As of right now there is no prize for this category aside from the glory of seeing the most species. Of course, the real prize is bragging rights.

Avicaching Leaderboard
Both the total species tallies and Avicache scores will be displayed on the Avicaching Leaderboard. The leaderboard is updated in real-time as you submit sightings.
See the current Avicaching leaderboard here<http://ebird.org/ebird/avicache/home>


Good eBirding!

Forwarding this to the wider birding audience in the area.
We (BRP) have 30 of our newly developed Swift recorders (TARUs or terrestrial audio recording units) spread throughout SSW recording 24/7 as part of a long-term biodiversity measure.
The avicaching will assist as ground truth as we develop detectors for species specific vocalizations, in addition to the noise analysis work we can do now, such as airport and route 13 noise patterns.
BTW, the recording sites are marked, a requirement to ensure that no one was surreptitiously being recorded.

Cheers,

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] odd goose
Upon spotting a flock of Snow Geese at the tail end of a rather lovely
and productive though brief birding trip with friends up the east side
of Cayuga Lake as far as Union Springs, I saw an odd-looking bird in the
Snow Goose flock. There were a couple of grey morphs, but one bird was
mostly dark except for a white face patch. The only bird in our guides
which it resembled, at a distance, was a Barnacled Goose which I assume
is an impossibility. What other bird would have coloration and markings
which resembled those of a Barnacled Goose? It was in a flock of Snow
Geese in a field of stubble on route 34. Could it be some kind of hybrid?

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Ospreys, wren
Following up on an Osprey report from Stewart Park today I bike there on the Cayuga Waterfront Trail. On my way, looking across Cayuga Inlet towards Union Fields in Cass Park, I saw that the nest platform atop one of the light poles had a new profile: an Osprey was standing in the middle of the nest.

As I neared the end of Pier Road and was about to cross the suspension bridges to Renwick Wildwood and Stewart Park, I saw a large bird flying away northwest at tree top height. It was another Osprey who broke a branch off a tree, turned, flew to the platform not far from me, and added it to the pile of sticks. I'm not sure it can be called a nest yet because I think the previous sticks were put there by people as a starter. I don't recall that nest being used by Ospreys before.

In other nesting news, this morning on Ithaca's West Hill I saw a Carolina Wren carrying a green strand of what looked like moss. I assume its nest is ready for a lining.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] meeting re Dodge/Dryden solar project 4/4 7 PM
Notice of meeting regarding proposed solar installation at Dryden and Dodge & Stevenson Roads: Tuesday, April 4 at 7 PM, at Lansing Community Library, 29 Auburn Rd. (Rts. 34/34B) in South Lansing. Lower level large meeting room, enter west side, ground level off parking lot. Library is older brick bldg. in front of newer Town Hall.

My neighbor, Bert Bland, Director of Cornell's Environmental Health, is the Cornell U. contact for this project and offered to help set up an information meeting for birders and others interested in finding out more about this work. Bharath Srinivasan, who runs the development group at Distributed Sun - the firm proposing the solar arrays in Dryden, and others will be present to provide info and to ask for any input and concerns people have.

Mr. Srinivasan provided this description of the proposed projects:

The proposed Ellis Tract community solar project includes leasing approximately 110 acres of Cornell land in the Town of Dryden, currently managed by the Colleges of Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine for agricultural research to a developer (SUN8) for the purpose of constructing three community-scale solar farms to generate power for sale to local residents through the new NYS Community Distribution Generation program. The project locations include 9MW on the Ellis Tract north of Stevenson Rd, 5MW on Dodge Rd, and 4MW on Turkey Hill Rd south of Stevenson Rd. As part of the project costs, multi-million dollar upgrades will be made to several miles of the local distribution grid.

The projects proposed do not anticipate grading, using concrete or any other chemicals to construct or operate. The projects will have corridors for wild-life along the fencing to allow for easy movement between one-side to another. The arrays will be screened from neighboring properties using native plantings (eg. Along Dodge Road and Turkey Hill Road). The projects are expected to bring discounts to energy purchasers and incremental property tax revenue to Tompkins County, Town of Dryden and the Dryden Central School District, while generating clean, carbon-free electricity.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Monday Night Seminar: A World of Sound with Juan Pablo Culasso
Hi Everyone:

Please join us for the next Monday Night Seminar, on April 3rd. As always,
the seminars are held in the auditorium at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology,
and are free and open to the public. The doors open at 7:00,

We will be streaming this seminar live. Bookmark

*Monday, April 3*

*7:30pm*



*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.



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







Upcoming Monday Night Seminars:

-----------------------------------------------------------------











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.

Hi everybody,

I can also recommend the radarscope app:
https://radarscope.io/

As far as i know it’s the only app that allows you to view all the high-resolution “raw” weather radar products (so no filtering that keeps only precipitation, and also all the dual-polarimetry products). Costs you $10, but I’ve been really happy with it.

Best,
Adriaan

Hello friends, wearing my work hat here...

The Northeastern Integrated Pest Management Center and New York Sea Grant
are sponsoring a free screening of the environmental documentary "A Plastic
Ocean" on Monday April 24 at 7pm in Willard Straight Theatre (Cornell
Cinema).

Public is invited. I watched it last night and it is a stunning work that
anyone who cares about birds, animals, the ocean and the planet should see.

There is a section on tropical birds ingesting plastic that is just
heartbreaking.

The trailer can be watched here
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6zrn4-FfbXw

Please put this important event on your calendars (only 2 days after Earth
Day) and invite friends as well.

Thanks so much,

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Sapsucker Woods Blue-winged Teals
On a lunchtime walk today several of us saw 3 Blue-winged Teals on the pond
near the islands. Someone was there taking pictures of them when we
arrived. The ducks quickly disappeared out of sight heading left towards
the Podell Boardwalk. I looked for them at 2:00 from the staff lounge and
could not find them. Also on the pond was a pair of Hooded Mergansers.

Yes, the world is a richer place for me since I began birding; I hear and
see so much more beauty.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Owling Trip
We had an interesting experience last night. John Confer led an owing trip for the CBC. Our first stop was Wood Road north where it is broken by a stream crossing. John tried unsuccessfully for saw-whet, screech, and then great horned owls - we have had some of them at that location in past years. As is got dark, Suan pulled out his infared camera and began scanning the woods for warm bodies. What he picked up was amazing! A RUFFED GROUSE perched high in a tree (probably poplar - probably feeding on the new buds or the catkins). We then listened to several woodcocks penning and then follow one of them (on the camera screen) as it took of, flew its loops, then settled to the ground again. What an asset that camera is for night-time birding!

The only owl we were able to find was a saw-whet that gave a short response call to playback at the bottom of Star Stanton Road.

Subject: Re: [cayugabirds-l] More Turkey Vultures
Hi, all -

I'm relatively new to the list-serve and haven't chimed in too much. I've taken to photographing these gorgeous creatures and am still learning!

I wanted you to know that I saw the pair of adult bald eagles along with a blue heron at Mud Lock on Thursday in the late afternoon. They were perfectly content perched up on treetops that were very near where the best used to be.

I also saw three or four flocks of snow geese with hundreds of birds along route 90 and then off to the east in some farm fields.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Union Springs ... 6 Sandhills
3/25/17 6 Sandhill cranes flew NE directly over our house at 4:20
p.m.. Guess I might call them a "yard bird" first as well as FOY for me!

Yesterday the Cayuga Lake waters seen from Frontenac Park were well
dotted with the usual ducks & a few Canadas.

I saw close to 40 Am. wigeon fly from the lake to land in the park where
they eagerly began "grazing" on the grass. The fields, finally devoid
of snow up behind our house, east of the lake, had MANY Canadas.

Mill pond had 3 buffles yesterday ... one male & 2 squabbling females.

How nice it is to see the yellowing of the gold finches & the arrival of
more house finches at our feeders each day.

Fritzie

Had a winter wren this morning at the Fischer Old Growth Forest in Newfield, singing a slower-than-normal song. Recording here (song starts around the 8th second):

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Dryden Lake: Ross's Goose, goldeneye
Livia and I checked Dryden Lake late this morning. Although the lake is
still almost completely frozen, the tiny open corner at the northeast end
had an impressive diversity of ducks, including NORTHERN PINTAIL, GADWALL,
AMERICAN WIGEON, GREEN-WINGED TEAL, AMERICAN BLACK DUCK, RING-NECKED DUCK,
and four COMMON GOLDENEYE, three females and one male. Goldeneye are
generally quite scarce on Dryden Lake.

http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S35413814

On our way out we drove along West Lake Road and found an adult ROSS'S
GOOSE in a group of several hundred Snow Geese in the wet cornfields near
the Rt. 38 end of the road. According to Kevin, the Ross's was still
present a few minutes ago (1PM). This is only my fourth time seeing this
species on the ground in Tompkins County.

http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S35413820

We drove around quite a few other areas in Dryden without too much else to
show for it. The only other birds of note were a MERLIN on a telephone pole
on Livermore Road and an adult RED-SHOULDERED HAWK perched over the back
ditch at the Unit 2 ponds on Niemi Road.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Drumming
The ground is still mostly snow-covered here in the wooded hills above West Danby, but I just heard a Ruffed Grouse drumming down in the ravine below my house.

The day before yesterday, while at work in my shop, I heard scrabbling noises under the eaves, lighter than squirrels, and differently patterned than a rummaging titmouse or a Carolina Wren. I looked out the glass in time to see a small weasel (short-tailed female ermine?) come around the corner and up the handrail, to within three feet of me. Tradition says "bad luck", but I was thrilled to see this ferociously cute little predator out on the prowl!

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Ducks
Lots of ducks (and geese) on the move today. I spent a half hour at Myers this morning. Salmon Creek is high, with thick, chocolaty water. Killdeer calling in the background and a small number of gulls still around. But mainly I noticed ducks flying up the lake. One group of 5 BLACK SCOTERS. Several groups of BUFFLEHEADS. One group of 6 NORTHERN PINTAIL. A V of Snow Geese, and multiple flocks of Canadas.

Thanks for the help concerning radar and migration.

In my search I also found this site, and I hope it can be of use to some
folks; it has the National Doppler Radar Sites available at one click of
a mouse...
