Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Cuckoo
We just saw a cuckoo in our West Hill Neighborhood. We’re pretty sure it was the Black-billed Cuckoo. It’s the first one we’ve seen here in the 18+ years we’ve lived here.

West Hill in the city

The parents are probably around. If a safe place can be found for it until
they return that is a much better option than a rehabber.

I can't get down there until 4:30 so if someone can move the little tyke to
safety that would be great.

There is a recent fledgling white breasted nuthatch in the hanging plant outdoor area at greenstar dodging cars and feet. I have twin infants in my car and have to get home but if anyone is rehab-minded or could search for a safer place to deposit it nearby I’m sure the little guy/gal would appreciate it. It’s making little frog like noises. Likely not safe from cars or well-meaning humans who want a pet.

No luck on either the grebe or red knots, but did find a few birds of interest. 20 Snow Geese hanging around the marina, with a Canvasback and few Redheads. Offshore were a pair of Red-breasted Mergansers, several Common Mergansers, and a pair of Bufflehead. Near the flagpole (east end of park) found a Blackpoll Warbler, Warbling Vireo, and Philadelphia Vireo. Also had a blackpoll warbler near the park entrance.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] RED-HEADED WOODPECKER at our feeders -- once in 50+ years!
A RED-HEADED WOODPECKER appeared briefly at our feeders next to our
dining room windows at about 6:45pm; it stayed for about 15 seconds
before flying off eastwards over the next yard, flashing brilliant black
and white. Not long enough to get a photo, but both Gin and I saw it
perched on and eating out of the feeder containing "Ithaca Blend" mix.
No need for binoculars, it was within 10 ft of where I was sitting. (No
it was definitely NOT a Red-Bellied Wdpkr.) This is the first time it
was close enough to see clearly the black line at the base of the red
throat.

I went outside to see if there was any sign of it anywhere but no luck.
I will report it if seen again.

Our ~1.7acre yard is not typical RHwoodpecker habitat. This was a once
in 50+ years sighting! We regularly have all the other local woodpeckers
at our feeders, including Pileated, and YBSapsuckers and Flickers come
around but not to the feeders.

Hope it is seen again somewhere in Ellis Hollow.

Nari Mistry,
Ellis Hollow Rd.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Purple Martins on Cayuga Lake (south end)
From about 2-3:30pm I was windsurfing from East Shore going west to the
piling cluster located about 1/2 mile north of the lighthouse jetties. In
that vicinity were several swallows, mostly barn, foraging on the water. I
soon noticed that some seemed overweight and dark underneath, and soon
found myself surrounded by several Purple Martins, at least three males and
one female (hard to get an accurate count with them flying around). This
may or may not be scopable from Hog Hole or Stewart Park, or be
identifiable from there. But I did enjoy observing their flight pattern
which is distinctly different from the barn swallows (and also NRW and one
tree swallow): their flight was much more effortless, with gentler
wingbeats like swifts or birdwing butterflies, and then coasting gently
down to very close to the water, sometimes seeming like they're about to
stick out their feet to tapdance on the water like storm petrels. And they
didn't seem to mind me that much, flying to within five feet of me for
great looks at the purple glistening in the sun.

At one point I noticed a barn swallow approach the piling cluster, though I
did not see it land. I'm wondering if they might be nesting there.

I just had a rather exciting visitor! He took me several minutes to
identify. At first glance (with his back to me, showing wing bars), I
confusedly thought, "Giant goldfinch??" But
then I got to observe the bird for several minutes as it moved around to
different perches, seeming to be undecided
whether to collect nesting material or look for food. I found a good ID
illustration.

Bright golden yellow beneath, black chin, black speckles on head and
shoulders, white wing bars, pointed bill. Gorgeous bird!!

I wish any kind of oriole would nest here. I don't think we have the
preferred types of trees though.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Brown Pelican near Oswego
Late this afternoon I was at Sunset Bay Park on the Lake Ontario shore East of Oswego watching and photographing about 55 Caspian Terns and I did a double-take when I saw and immature Brown Pelican floating about one hundred yards off shore. So I turned my camera on it. I continued to shoot bursts as it flew toward me and over me so closely that it was difficult to keep it in the viewfinder. As it flew, it was being harassed by any nearby gull and tern in much the same manner as a Red-tailed Hawk would be by a flock of smaller birds.

I got a few nice shots of it in the water, flying solo and being harassed. Unfortunately, I left my laptop at home and I have no way to get the photos off the camera’s SD card. I’ll have to wait until I get back home later Wednesday night to get them into my computer and convert them from RAW into JPEG to get them up to eBird. But I couldn’t wait until then to tell all of you CBC folks about it.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Egyptian Goose?
I saw what looked like a pale Egyptian Goose in the company of two Canada
geese on Salmon Creek mid-way between the RR bridge and the creek mouth at
10:30 through 11:10 this morning. It walked along the banks of the creek
on the Myer's Park side for quite a while.

We've had Moscovy ducks there before. This is my first EGGO, if it is one.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Hawthorns - ID Guide
This is indirectly related to birds, in that the insects the birds are feeding upon (such as leafrollers, or Tortricidae moth larvae, which may have irruptive cycles), may predominantly be found on the leaves of certain species of hawthorns. If one could identify the species of hawthorns in your back yard, neighborhood, town park, or birding patch, and if we had a better understanding of the insect ecology or lifecycle, or other external factors such as weather, we may better be able to predict which hawthorns may be a desirable foraging species for neotropical migratory birds on any given year.

On the topic of identifying different species of hawthorns, I recently stumbled upon an excellent reference guide to identifying hawthorn tree species. While visiting the Collectors’ Corner at the Friends of the Library Book Sale in Ithaca, I found and purchased a signed copy of Haws: A guide to Hawthorns of the Southeastern United States. This book is an amazingly detailed 518 page one-of-a-kind field guide with various dichotomous keys, tons of color photographs, full of species descriptions and the natural history of hawthorns. This book does wonders toward dispelling the myth and previous notion that hawthorns are only a complex mass of cross-bred and unidentifiable hybrids.

If interested, I found the author’s main site where you can obtain a hard copy: http://www.floramontivaga.com/about-us.html

E-books are available from various sites, including Amazon (Kindle): https://www.amazon.com/Guide-Hawthorns-Southeastern-United-States-ebook/dp/B00OPNWFEM

Hopefully this guide may be useful to those who wish to tease apart the hawthorn ID mystery, as it relates to neotropical migratory bird foraging strategies.

Good birding!

Sincerely,
Chris T-H

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Wildlife Drive Whimbrels & more
Sunday morning about 9 AM found 2 Whimbrel, 1 Ruddy Turnstone, & 7 Black-bellied Plovers in the open area just before the eagle sculpture on Montezuma's wildlife drive. There were also semi-palmated plovers and a few of sandpipers (mostly least?).

Originally thought there might be a couple Am. Golden-plovers in the mix, but after reviewing pics (and help from Jay) believe they were all Black-bellied, with a couple in transition & the rest in breeding plumage).

Not much else of note; except for a common loon out in the middle of the main pool (before the spillway), and both Virginia Rails & Willow Flycatchers calling along the drive.

Chris,

Hopefully it is a cyclical thing. One of our best spots in Broome Co King
Street Town of Barker has had more migrants than I have seen in several
years. Diversity and numbers are up for most warblers and other neotropical
migrants this year. I also have noticed in a few other spots in the county
that there seems to be more neotropical migrants. I went to Cascade Valley
SF and pretty much everywhere there were ovenbirds and red-eyed vireos. The
numbers of blackburnian and magnolia warblers are up and so are black
throated green and canada warblers. I had 12 least flycatchers along this
road which is well above previous years. Our Hawthorne area in Upper Lisle
also has been fairly quiet. But the breeders in that area are in decent
numbers. Its been a great year down here for Bay-breasted and Cape May
Warblers.

I again believe I am temporarily up-to-date with the first records list, which is linked on the Resources page of Cayuga Bird Club website.

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

Please let me know of any possible errors - species missing, independent observers or members of groups on the first date missing, different date, whatever. There have been reports which I have discounted for various reasons, including being outside the basin, or being rare or weird without any details or explanation, but if there is information to support inclusion, I’m happy to hear it.

Someday I will write more about how cool those lists are, and the neat info I have incorporated into the tables.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] eBird Report - Hawthorn Orchard and East Ithaca Rec. Way, May 18, 2019
This morning, I lead another local Cayuga Bird Club field trip to the Hawthorn Orchard. This was co-lead by Ken Kemphues and Bob McGuire, with addition support from Suan Yong.

It was unprecedentedly quiet this morning for peak migration. Despite the apparent lack of migration, we did have really nice views of several of the species listed below. A few highlights include an early morning Tennessee Warbler, mid-morning Nashville Warbler, and a late morning Wilson’s Warbler and American Redstart (on our way back to the cars).

The only thing missing from the astounding quiet this morning were some late summer crickets! ;-)

Good birding!

Sincerely,
Chris T-H

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Birds are moving via radar
Even with north winds aloft the birds are coming. Its getting to that point
where they just need to get where they are going. see

https://radar.weather.gov/ridge/radar_lite.php?rid=bgm&product=N0R&overlay=11101111&loop=yes


Its not the heaviest migration but it is a sign that the birds are going
regardless now.
Tomorrow night should be even more. I suspect a lot of our later migrants
will arrive en mass. Blackpoll, wilson's warblers, Canada warbler,
willow/alder flycatchers, and the first push of semipalmated sandpipers,
maybe even a few white-rumped, ruddy turnstones, etc.
I know I left out a bunch.

Good Birding,
Dave

Before this totally escapes me, I want to first thank our three Cayuga Bird Club field leaders for assisting in leading a chilly early morning bird walk along the Freeville to George Road section of the Dryden Rail Trail. This was part of the grand opening celebration by the Friends of Dryden Rail Trail for the newly opened section of rail trail. Thank you, Ken Kemphues, Bob McGuire, and Laura Stenzler! We didn’t know how many people to expect: a total of 17 (all-inclusive) birders braved the cold to make the best of what turned out to be a perfect day for an opening celebration.

Below is the complete eBird checklist that was maintained by Bob McGuire and reviewed upon our final stopping point at the George Road Crossing. When you walk this new section of trail, please use the newly created eBird hotspots to report your bird sightings using the free eBird App: “Dryden Rail Trail—Freeville to George Rd,” Dryden Rail Trail—George Rd Crossing,” or “Dryden Rail Trail—George Rd to Springhouse Rd.”

Thanks again and good birding!

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Fwd: eBird -- Hawthorn Orchard and East Ithaca Rec. Way -- May 17, 2019
It was a relatively quiet day today. Most of the migrants could be seen and heard passing right overhead well into the morning. The few that stopped in were silent or gone by 10:30AM. Initially birded alone, then was joined by Asher Hockett for a bit, followed by Reuben Stoltzfus, after which I was joined by my colleague Dave Winiarski. Saw several other birders there as the morning progressed. But, it was disappointingly quiet, given the weather and time of year.

Highlights are in bold, below.

Not sure what the next few days will have in store for us.

It’s very muddy in there!

Good birding!

Sincerely,
Chris T-H

About 6:15pm in Cass Park near the Children’s Garden I saw a Merlin flying east toward the general direction of GIAC. It was coming off West Hill somewhere and was well above treetop level when it went over me, but appeared to be descending slightly. Maybe they hunt over a wide area, or maybe it was visiting.

This morning I heard a Northern Waterthrush near the Sherwood Platform,
and this afternoon I heard one along the Woodleton Boardwalk at 4:45.
It wasn't singing when I was on the boardwalk at 4, but when I came
back through at 4:45, it was singing. I think they typically sing less
often around now.

Subject: Re: [cayugabirds-l] Weather Forecasting Tools
One note of caution with this: it is only the surface winds. Birds, as you
know, migrate from a few thousand feet up to probably over 10,000 feet in
some cases and species.

I find this website most helpful for winds aloft forecasts...

https://weather.cod.edu/forecast/ <https://weather.cod.edu/forecast/>
Pick the model of choice. I usually go with the NAM for the next 3 days and
then the GFS out beyond that (but use with caution). Pick 925 mb for 1-3
feet above ground level winds, 850 mb for around 5000 feet AGL, 700 mb for
around 10000 feet AGL and 500 mb for 20000 feet AGL (roughly). After you
choose the level, pick wind speed. It will give you the wind speed and
direction and you can use the slide bar to project out into the future. You
can easily set jet streaks (areas of enhanced winds). The site also has
the surface winds too.

Good birding

Best,
Dave

=========
Upon initial review of the forecasts yesterday, the weekend was looking good. Now, upon review, the forecasts have changed. The warming trend that was shaping up looks like instead it will be blocked by a northern flow of air coming down from Canada and the Great Lakes starting Saturday morning. One forecast model shows the warm air hitting a hard brick wall by Sunday as far south as a line stretching from around Indianapolis through Columbus and southeast to Washington DC. That being said, both models show a southern airflow from Thursday night through Friday morning; albeit chilly, the air will be from the correct direction to assist migrants attempting to leap-frog their way north.
I use a combination of weather sites to make inferences (constantly changing…).
Magic Seaweed is one such site. Making sure the time zone is correctly set (top left option), I choose my region (bottom left menu) and alternate between wind and pressure (bottom right options; toggle on/off multiple panes at a time, or just one pane).
Try this link for Great Lakes region, wind, EDT:

| | Great Lakes Charts - Magicseaweed.commagicseaweed.comGlobal surf forecasting charts. With various chart types including swell, surf, pressure, wind, MSLP, ECM and sea surface temperature - Magicseaweed.com |

https://magicseaweed.com/US-Northeastern-Seaboard-Surf-Chart/20/?type=wind&timezone=America%2FNew_York

Move your mouse across the bottom from left to right to move through the forecast dates at the bottom. The closer you are to the current date, the more accurate the forecast.
Another site is Windy.com.
Lots of custom configuration and tools available, probably the most versatile site.
The following link has a pin drop positioned approximately over Ithaca with Temperature selected. Slide the bottom bar across to view the forecast. Different models can be selected at bottom right (NAM is most accurate and short-term, ECMWF and GFS are two longer-term models). Top right allows you to select different element views (wind, temperature, rain, etc.).

https://www.windy.com/-Temperature-temp?temp,38.013,-79.739,6,m:ePOad1V

I found it most interesting to view Temperature element view for the particular interest of bird migration. The wind always shows as moving white lines. As you slide the forecast bar across the bottom, you can see how there is a strong line of demarcation that develops by Saturday morning, the one I described above. That may hinder migration coming in from the South.
Based upon the current forecast models, it looks like there could be good fallout conditions along the Lake Erie and Lake Ontario shorelines, or even here in Ithaca as well. We shall see—forecasts are dynamically changing by the minute.
Hope this helps!

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Sapsucker Woods, Th 5/16
I walked around much of Sapsucker Woods with visiting scientist Martin
Stervander. It was by far the best morning of the spring for me, probably
a top-ten day for me ever in the sanctuary, all the more so because we
picked up many lifers for Martin. The treetops from Sherwood Platform past
the Charley Harper Bench all the way to the road were teeming with great
numbers of at least 19 warbler species, including CAPE MAY (4+ M, 1 F),
BAY-BREASTED (3+), TENNESSEE (3+, one confirmed by sight), BLACKBURNIAN
(8+), NORTHERN PARULA (7+), PINE (1 M, surprising to see by Fuller
Wetlands, not near any pines – confirmed by photo), BLACK-THROATED BLUE (4
M, 1 F), BLACK-THROATED GREEN (6+), CHESTNUT-SIDED (6+), NASHVILLE (2,
heard only), BLACK-AND-WHITE (1 seen, 1+ heard only), WILSON’S (seen by
Martin, missed by me), and one HOODED (heard only, but I feel sure).
Northern Waterthrush would have made 20 warbler species for the morning,
but somehow we didn’t hear any along the Woodleton Boardwalk. We also
found a couple of YELLOW-THROATED VIREOS and BLUE-HEADED VIREOS.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] AMBI
This morning as we approached the wildlife pond in our NW field we put
up a large bird. First immediate thought was another Green Heron as they
nest and hunt here. It spread its wings and was much too large and then
landed on the dike and immediately went into the Nothing to See Here
-just a reed act. It was a female American Bittern for # 100 on the
sanctuary year list! Nearby in the pond edge growth we heard another,
presumably the male. The female calmly walked down the back of the dike
as we watched. Made a big skirt around the pond after that as we would
love them to stay. Could not think of a better "century mark bird".

We also had many warblers feeding in the spruce and larch tops but the
gray sides made for lack of color and pattern. The only low warblers
ahve been local breeders.

It’s certainly been a year for Orioles. I have at least three males and two females. The surprise today was having two Orchard Orioles show up. One is a female. The male looks like a first summer male in Sibley. They like the oranges and grape jelly so maybe they will stay around.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Frontenac Island Cormorants - can't we coexist?
Let's not vilify the cormorants, and strive to co-exist! Cayuga Lake is
enormous; so I find it hard to believe cormorants would deplete a fish
population. The eagle and osprey populations have been growing greatly
around the lake, so I don't think it would be fair for fishermen to blame a
supposed fish depletion on the cormorants. There could be other causes too.

I have enjoyed watching the cormorant rookery in Jetty Woods for the past
six(?) years. Before them, I recall when the Great Blue Herons had a
rookery there. Do we know 100% for sure that this is a cormorant population
explosion or could it be a temporary relocation that might last only a few
years? I've seen grackles nest around my home for a few years in a row,
then they are gone for a few years. I've seen this cycle for the past six
years with them and other species. I think it is a survival strategy to
keep predators guessing. Once the nests have been attacked too many times,
they relocate. I know I would!

And, yes, they poop and pee everywhere; and while the odor was not pleasant
at times, I did not observe any harm to vegetation at Jetty Woods as a
result.

Let's co-exist....peace!

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Hawthorn Orchard Trails Info and Map
Good afternoon, birders!

I was having an offline conversation about the Hawthorn Orchard trails, descriptions, the desire for a map, etc. and thought it would be helpful to share the following trail descriptions and “map” of the Hawthorn Orchard with the greater birding community.

First, a note on parking. Park in the right rear dirt trailer parking lot of the Oxley Equestrian Center (220 Pine Tree Road, Ithaca, NY). You may also continue along the dirt road at the right rear corner of the Oxley Equestrian Center trailer parking lot and park near the corner of the outdoor tennis courts. Parking in the main Reis Tennis Center parking lot is discouraged.

Link to the map and more completed trail color descriptions are below. Please note, there are no trail or color markings within the actual Hawthorn Orchard.

I think it’s important to understand the geography when visiting. The main Hawthorn Orchard is a large, roughly 13-acre, rectangular parcel, running lengthwise in a North-South direction. There’s the steep ravine as the North boundary, an old horse pasture as the South boundary, a large soccer/rugby/intramural sports ball field and the Reis Tennis Center as the East boundary, and the East Ithaca Recreation Way as the West boundary. The Hawthorn Orchard land slopes in an overall Southwest direction.

It’s easy to get disoriented in there, but you cannot get lost. You can use your hearing to identify where you are within the Hawthorn Orchard. Listen for trail walkers along the East Ithaca Recreation Way. Listen for people playing tennis at the outdoor tennis courts. Listen for the road noise from Mitchell Street traffic just beyond the North Ravine. I often forget to mention that I use these helpful auditory cues to keep myself oriented when birding over there.

As for trails and entrances, there is a well defined East-West trail (Map: teal colored trail) that connects the Northwest corner clearing, by the East Ithaca Recreation Way in view of the Black Oak Lane Townhouses, to the Northeast corner where there are a couple of defined entrances.

One of the Northeast corner defined entrances is just Northwest of a small equipment shed on the North side of the ball field located behind and on the West side of the Reis Tennis Center outdoor tennis courts. The other Northeast corner entrance is located to the Northeast of and just beyond the previously mentioned shed, and is adjacent to the outfield boundary fence of the softball field (located on the North side of the Reis Tennis Center). This latter entrance (Map: orange colored trail) brings you into a very open maple forest that slopes down into the North-side ravine. The trail here follows along the uphill side of the ravine and connects near the previously-mentioned Northeast entrance area (Map: teal colored trail).

There is another trail one can navigate (Map: red colored trail) which runs from the Northeast entrance (to the Northwest of the shed) along an inside track all the way along the Easternmost edge of the Hawthorn Orchard, that brings you out to the very Southeast entrance. There’s also the various wide passages along the Southern interior section of the Hawthorn Orchard (Map: purple colored trail); those were previously used by equestrians years ago, but are no longer maintained for that purpose. Those wide paths meander along the Southern section and bring you from the Southeast corner to the Southwest corner.

Some historical aerial images may be accessed by visiting this link here:

http://bit.ly/HawthornHistAerials

The latter historical aerial image was taken in 2006 for me by Bill Hecht. I’ve used that flyover image to create a PDF map with color-indicated trails for descriptive purposes. Again, please note, there are no trail or color markings within the actual Hawthorn Orchard.

The trail map PDF may be accessed by visiting this link here:

http://bit.ly/HawthornTrails

* The teal colored trail is the main East-West trail near and along the North ravine edge.
* The orange colored trail is the one that goes into the open section of maples closest to the softball field and connects to the teal colored trail.
* The red colored trail is the main North-South trail along the Easternmost edge of the Hawthorn Orchard.
* The purple colored trail is the one that meanders along the old equestrian trails on the South side of the Hawthorn Orchard.
* The white colored trails are purely deer paths. Only navigate if you feel confident or adventurous.
* The gray colored trail is a poorly-defined deer path as well, but is nice to poke along for warblers and especially for Yellow-bellied Flycatcher in late May and early June.

A final reminder that it is often extremely muddy here. Wear muck boots and be prepared to get wet and muddy, especially following recent rainfall.

Hope these resources are useful for birders visiting the Hawthorn Orchard for the first time, or if you’ve been there multiple times before!

Good birding!

Sincerely,
Chris T-H

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Weather Forecasting Tools
I was having an offline conversation with Laura Stenzler and Ton Schat about what days might be the best in the forecast for their personal 24-hour bird-a-thon. Laura thought it would be helpful to share some of the information below with the broader Cayugabirds-l group!

=========

Upon initial review of the forecasts yesterday, the weekend was looking good. Now, upon review, the forecasts have changed. The warming trend that was shaping up looks like instead it will be blocked by a northern flow of air coming down from Canada and the Great Lakes starting Saturday morning. One forecast model shows the warm air hitting a hard brick wall by Sunday as far south as a line stretching from around Indianapolis through Columbus and southeast to Washington DC. That being said, both models show a southern airflow from Thursday night through Friday morning; albeit chilly, the air will be from the correct direction to assist migrants attempting to leap-frog their way north.

I use a combination of weather sites to make inferences (constantly changing).

Magic Seaweed is one such site. Making sure the time zone is correctly set (top left option), I choose my region (bottom left menu) and alternate between wind and pressure (bottom right options; toggle on/off multiple panes at a time, or just one pane).

Try this link for Great Lakes region, wind, EDT:

Try this link for Northeastern seaboard region, wind, EDT:

https://magicseaweed.com/US-Northeastern-Seaboard-Surf-Chart/20/?type=wind&timezone=America%2FNew_York

Move your mouse across the bottom from left to right to move through the forecast dates at the bottom. The closer you are to the current date, the more accurate the forecast.

Another site is Windy.com<http://windy.com/>.

Lots of custom configuration and tools available, probably the most versatile site.

The following link has a pin drop positioned approximately over Ithaca with Temperature selected. Slide the bottom bar across to view the forecast. Different models can be selected at bottom right (NAM is most accurate and short-term, ECMWF and GFS are two longer-term models). Top right allows you to select different element views (wind, temperature, rain, etc.).

https://www.windy.com/-Temperature-temp?temp,38.013,-79.739,6,m:ePOad1V

I found it most interesting to view Temperature element view for the particular interest of bird migration. The wind always shows as moving white lines. As you slide the forecast bar across the bottom, you can see how there is a strong line of demarcation that develops by Saturday morning, the one I described above. That may hinder migration coming in from the South.

Based upon the current forecast models, it looks like there could be good fallout conditions along the Lake Erie and Lake Ontario shorelines, or even here in Ithaca as well. We shall seeforecasts are dynamically changing by the minute.

Hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Chris

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Rose-Breasted Grosbeaks, etc.
Here on upper Bruce Hill Road in Danby we have three males and at least one female Rose-Breasted Grosbeak. We usually have them in the summer. We had a male Indigo Bunting stop at the feeders once this year, and that seems to be an annual occurrence. We see it just the once. We have two or three male Baltimore Orioles and, we think, one female. It's lighter than a male but darker than a female. The Orioles won't use the Oriole feeder; they use the Hummingbird feeder and work on fresh oranges. We've only seen one pair of Hummingbirds so far this year. Some years we have so many we have four feeders for them.
Watching the various birds and other wild animals certainly keeps us entertained!

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Frontenac Island Cormorants
It is with great alarm to report & dismay to have seen that hundreds of
cormorants have taken up residence on the ground & in the trees of
Frontenac Island, Cayuga Lake, Union Springs, NY.

The island is owned by the village of Union Springs & I seriously doubt
the village fathers have any idea of what this invasion means. Just last
mo. there was mention of what the village could do to enhance the
condition & beauty of the island. THAT thought was BEFORE the cormorants
descended.

Do any readers have knowledge of what the  village can do to try to get
the invasives to leave or where to seek help?  Yrs. ago there was great
concern, esp. by fishermen & fishing guides when the birds took up
residence on the eastern islands of Lake Ontario, initially Little
Galloo. Besides the fact that the birds eat great numbers of fish,  it's
been reported that their fecal matter is so acidic that it kills any
plant, above or below water that is lands on. On the little islands on
Lake Ontario, wildlife specialists (?) & helpers were eventually given
permission to cover the eggs with a soap solution (I believe) to prevent
them from hatching.

My earlier hope that the cormorants were migrating through was
thoroughly,  finally, dashed this evening just before dark when I went
to the boat launch & saw the hundreds of birds there with more coming in
to roost. I fear they will also invade the areas around Mud Lock & MNWR.

Fritzie B.,

Union Springs

Hi All,

We typically see quite a few at our feeders but this year we have more than usual. Yesterday we had 7 males and 5 females. Could see a repeat of that today!

Hearing both lists with similar reports is like hearing echoes!

I had one male on Saturday morning at my fall creek home. He wasn’t eating the seeds and just seemed to be resting. This is the second time I’ve seen a rose-breasted grosbeak at my house in the last 5 years – so, they are definitely rare in downtown areas.

Cornell Lab auditorium

*Speaker*: Dr. Alan Poole, Retired Editor: Birds of North America, Cornell
Lab of Ornithology

*Title*: Ospreys Across the Pond–A European Osprey Tour

*Description:* The extraordinary revival in Osprey numbers that we are
witnessing here in North America has not been restricted to our shores.
Nearly eliminated from most of Europe half a century ago, Ospreys are
staging a remarkable comeback there as well—from Scotland to Spain and from
France to Finland. Follow local Osprey expert Alan Poole as he leads us
along on a 3-week summer trip through Europe, visiting Osprey researchers
and gathering material for his recently published book: Ospreys: The
Revival of a Global Raptor. Part travelogue, part natural history—this
beautifully illustrated lecture will give us glimpses of Europe through an
Osprey lens. Come celebrate the revival of a global raptor! This event is
free and open to the public. Join us in person in the Cornell Lab of
Ornithology's auditorium, or watch online

Subject: Re:[cayugabirds-l] first ever here
Although I don't live downtown, I live about 5 minutes from Cornell. I have had a male at my feeder for over a week now. I think I have seen one maybe three times in the past 15 years and then it was usually only for a day. I have never had one stay for so long. A real treat.

I had one male on Saturday morning at my fall creek home. He wasnt eating the seeds and just seemed to be resting. This is the second time Ive seen a rose-breasted grosbeak at my house in the last 5 years so, they are definitely rare in downtown areas.

Subject: RE: [cayugabirds-l] Crow relationship .... Union Springs
It's called "allopreening," and it's common among crow family members. I have some photos and a little video of it at
https://get.google.com/albumarchive/101683745969614096883/album/AF1QipOTOn8uYT5okqlVFuupJF3oZ9GirfXeONgUKOYY

All members of the genus Corvus allopreen, so far as I know. Oddly, none of the jays do. When I worked on Florida Scrub-Jays I noticed that they could really have used allopreening. In the winter they would get ticks engorged on the back of their heads where an individual cannot groom. And, it appeared that the ticks carried important diseases, too. So they could have benefitted from allopreening.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Crow relationship .... Union Springs

This Mother's Day a.m. I saw a crow in our choke cherry tree & assumed it was an adult from the nest in the nearby spruce trees.

Here, let me say that only once in the last mo. have I heard any cawing from any crows so I presume they are quiet during nesting so as to not provoke any smaller birds into attacking them.

Almost immediately,  another crow joined the first & they seemed to really snuggle closely together in the steady rain.  I noticed the one on the right seemed to be doing something to the head of the other. They both turned so they were sideways to me. The one on the right appeared to be grooming the feathers on the top of the head of the one on the left.  I could see, with binoculars, that the feathers were definitely being lifted up & then were smoothed back down as the grooming continued.

This continued at least 5 min. & was quite interesting to watch. WHAT was going on???  Anyone have an answer? I have no idea if the birds were mates or family members since for many yrs.  a family of 3 to 7 has faithfully come to check out what compost I throw on the garden. Seems too soon for the eggs to have hatched & have a bird the size of an adult already.

Just another mystery of Nature.

Fritzie,

Union Springs,  where it's wet & getting wetter!

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Red-shouldered Hawk in Mecklenburg Cemetery
Early this afternoon I heard what I believe to be the loud and insistent
calls of a Red-shouldered Hawk. I did not have time to stay and get a
visual confirmation unfortunately, but I can't think of a plausible
alternative.

Mecklenburg Cemetery is a little tricky to find. I didn't even know it
was there until today. It's just off Rt 79. Coming from Ithaca, as you
come down the hill into Mecklenburg, just after the post office look for
a small lane on the right. There's a telecom company flag by that
entrance and one of their little buildings is right there too. You'll
see the stone pillars leading to the cemetery. That lane is marked as a
road on Google maps:
https://www.google.com/maps/@42.4556008,-76.7094307,17.62z.

The lane itself runs alongside a little creek and is quite birdy.
Without really trying I found Wood Duck, Yellow-rumped Warbler, Yellow
Warbler, Northern Parula, Baltimore Oriole, and others.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Cerulean Warbler in Ithaca (?), Sat 5/11
On Saturday afternoon at about 2:10 PM, from the new housing development at
400 Spencer Road in Ithaca, I heard what I think was a singing CERULEAN
WARBLER up the slope (along lower Stone Quarry Road). I couldn’t confirm
this bird by sight (no binoculars, didn’t even try). But I do feel that
Cerulean is the most likely ID, despite its local rarity and potential for
confusion with other singers.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Cayuga Bird Club May meeting
Next Monday, May 13, will be the next monthly meeting of the Cayuga Bird Club.

Carl Steckler and Meg Richardson will give their presentation, "Birding the Caldera of a Supervolcano in Arizona".
Meg Richardson and Carl Steckler traveled to Tucson in September 2018 to find birds, and birds they found. This trip added 43 birds to Carl's life list and provided an exceptional look at the life in the desert. Southeast Arizona is truly a birder's and photographers' paradise. Arizona is a vast landscape of bold color, formations and piercing beauty. The southeastern corner is no exception. Isolated mountains called Sky Islands, the remnants of a supervolcano, rise abruptly from the arid desert highlands and harbor a tremendous variety of plant and animal life. Carl and Meg will give a brief geological history of the Tucson area and its flora and fauna.
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.
Members are invited to join Carl and Meg for dinner at Taste of Thai Express just before the meeting at 5:30 p.m. Please RSVP to Colleen Richards <clr82...> by noon Monday for making reservations.
Colleen Richards

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Hawthorn Orchard Trails
Just a note about the Hawthorn Orchard Trails:

Tonight, I went back to the Hawthorn Orchard and re-opened the North-South passage along the Eastern edge of the Hawthorn Orchard. This route connects the Northeast corner entrance to the Southeast corner entrance. At the muddy Northeast corner entrance, you will bear left (through the muddy pool…) to access this passage.

Be forewarned, it is extremely muddy. The North-South passage trail is very wet and muddy and requires at least calf-high muck boots. If you wear regular hiking boots, your shoes will become wet and muddy. There’s just no avoiding it this year, as wet as this spring has been.

The North Ravine trail that connects the Northeast corner to the Northwest corner is not that muddy. To avoid most of the mud, you can enter the previously hidden trailhead close to the softball outfield fence (the Cornell Botanic Garden installed a trailhead sign at this location, and others). For those familiar, you will find that I made this entrance (and the entire North Ravine trail section) safer and more navigable Thursday night.

Hope this helps make your visits to the Hawthorn Orchard a little more enjoyable.

Good birding!

Sincerely,
Chris T-H

I don't know a lot about birds but I do know it is not a cardinal. Is hanging out by porch roof, there are carpenter bee traps (hence bees) hanging from the porch. I also thought it looked pink ... we had Indigo buntings, Baltimore Orioles and cardinals, so I was like .."Did I just see a pink bird?" Sorry I'm not a birder and can't give you really good birder info. The Sedlaceks (Karel and Cynthia) helped me identify the bird.”

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Hawthorn Orchard: May 10th
This morning, I made a quick run through the Hawthorn Orchard in-between the rain showers.

Not too much, but a male HOODED WARBLER was very cooperative for me. The Hooded Warbler was located near the Northwest entrance to the Hawthorn Orchard, right off the East Ithaca Recreation Way, along the hillside that slopes down on the West side of the pond below the Black Oak Lane townhouses. The bird was singing periodically and foraging on or near the ground.

Last night I did some trail clearing at the Hawthorn Orchard along the entire North Ravine trail and at the two Northeast trailhead entrances into the Hawthorn Orchard. Makes for a little easier navigation. Definitely wear muck boots when birding here, it’s pretty wet and muddy.

Below is my complete list from this morning.

Sincerely,
Chris T-H

- Media: 2 Photos
- Comments: "Same Bird - Sorry I only have an Iphone camera! Really red all over, straightish light colored beak. Smaller then a robin and sleeker. Does NOT hop on the ground like our cardinals. I don't know a lot about birds but I do know it is not a cardinal. Is hanging out by porch roof, there are carpenter bee traps (hence bees) hanging from the porch. I also thought it looked pink ... we had Indigo buntings, Baltimore Orioles and cardinals, so I was like .."Did I just see a pink bird?" Sorry I'm not a birder and can't give you really good birder info. The Sedlaceks (Karel and Cynthia) helped me identify the bird.”

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Sapsucker Woods, Fri 5/10
This morning I visited the Wilson Trail North in Sapsucker Woods between
spells of rain. It seemed that the mix of birds has remained essentially
unchanged since Tuesday’s influx – a female BAY-BREASTED WARBLER along the
pond edge; five or more CAPE MAY WARBLERS around the flowering trees at the
footbridge over the pond outflow; a WILSON’S WARBLER singing between this
bridge and the Sherwood Platform; plus CHESTNUT-SIDED WARBLER,
BLACK-THROATED BLUE WARBLER, NORTHERN PARULA, BLUE-HEADED VIREO, and other
expected songbirds between the platform and the Charley Harper bench.
Also, a MARSH WREN continues to sing in the reeds out from the Ruth Davis
arbor south of the visitor center. (To my knowledge, no one has found the
Golden-winged Warbler since Tuesday afternoon.)

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Finger Lakes Land Trust Spring Bird Quest -- four guided walks over May 25-27
Hi everyone,

Please consider joining me over Memorial Day weekend for the Finger Lakes
Land Trust Spring Bird Quest (SBQ), a series of outings celebrating our
local birds and the Land Trust's work in protecting their vital habitats.
See below for a list of walks I'll be leading.  For full details,
including site descriptions and directions, see
https://www.fllt.org/events/.

As always, these SBQ events are free, but I will welcome donations in
support of the Land Trust. If you care to make a pledge, as either a
fixed amount or an amount per species I find over the weekend on Land
Trust preserves, please contact me off-list. I am very grateful even for
the smallest donations! (I think that we've collectively raised about
$75K for the Land Trust through the SBQ since its inception in 2006.)

In addition, a week from tomorrow (Saturday, May 18), my son Tilden Chao
will be leading a free birding walk for kids (age 5 and up) at the Roy H.
Park Preserve (south), starting at 9:30 AM. All kids must be accompanied
by a parent or other responsible adult. More details at the link above.

I am looking forward to some great birding with many of you!

Mark Chao

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Dryden Rail Trail Bird Walk this Saturday: Freeville, NY
Hello Cayugabirders!

This Saturday, May 11, the Friends of the Dryden Rail Trail will be hosting an opening celebration of the Village of Freeville to Village of Dryden section of the Dryden Rail Trail. As part of the opening celebration, there will be an early morning bird walk lead by Cayuga Bird Club members Chris Tessaglia-Hymes, Ken Kemphues, Bob McGuire, and Laura Stenzler.

If you are interested in birding along the newly opened section of the Dryden Rail Trail, please join us at 7:30AM at the Freeville Village Hall trailhead, located at 5 Factory Street, Freeville, NY 13068.

PARKING: Parking spaces at the Village Hall are limited. Additional parking is being allowed in the parking lot on the left (South-facing) side of the Freeville Village Fire Station which is located across the street from the Village Hall. If you must park on the street, please do not park anywhere in front of the Freeville Village Fire Station, the fire engine bays, nor in their semicircular driveway to the right of the Station.

After meeting at 7:30AM, we will plan to go birding from the Village of Freeville towards the George Road crossing, a distance of about 1-1/2 miles. For those interested in walking the complete trail length, it is an additional 1-1/4 miles beyond the George Road crossing to the Village of Dryden.

The official event celebration will be located at the George Road crossing. During the event, disability parking will be allowed at Old George Road. Starting at 10:00AM, participants are encouraged to walk or bike with their friends and families from either Freeville or Dryden toward the George Road crossing event center.

Date: May 6, 2019 at 2:50:29 PM EDT
To: Friends of Dryden Rail Trail <friends-of-dryden-rail-trail...><mailto:<friends-of-dryden-rail-trail...>>

Dear Friend of the Dryden Rail Trail,

Please consider this your invitation to the official opening of the Dryden to Freeville section of the Dryden Rail Trail, from 10 am to 3 pm on Saturday, May 11.

The railroad-themed celebration, hosted by the Town of Dryden and the Rail Trail Task Force, will feature a 5-K fun run, local celebrities, music, raffles, children’s games, food trucks and more!

All participants, except 5K runners and walkers, are invited to park in Freeville or Dryden and walk along the trail to the event site on Old George Road.

Read on for the details:

Before the main festivities, the Cayuga Bird Club will host an early-morning bird walk on the trail at 7:30 am.

At 10 am, community members will meet at the trailhead kiosks in Dryden and Freeville, and walk with their respective mayors, Mike Murphy and David Fogel, to the event headquarters pavilion at Old George Road, the midpoint of the 3-mile trail section.

Lime Bikes will be available at the trailheads and leashed dogs are encouraged to join the celebration!

Syndicated columnist, author, and Freeville native Amy Dickinson will emcee the opening ceremony starting at 11:15 am. Instead of a ribbon cutting, the village mayors will drive a golden spike into the ground at the trail midpoint, to commemorate the golden “Last Spike” that connected the First Transcontinental Railroad to the Central Pacific and Union Pacific railroads and was hammered into place exactly 150 years and one day earlier.

Invited speakers include Assemblywoman Barbara Lifton; Trail Task Force chair Bob Beck; leader of the Friends of Dryden Rail Trail Bruno Schickel; Tompkins County legislator Mike Lane; the village mayors, and Town of Dryden Supervisor Jason Leifer.

On-site registration begins at 9:30 am for the “Almost 5-K Run” which leaves at 10 am from the Old George Rd. pavilion and goes to the Freeville Village kiosk and back. Runners and walkers of all ages can join. The $10 fee will support the Dryden PTA and the first 60 to sign up will receive railroad whistles. Parking, for Fun Run participants and their families only, will be available at the William George Agency main lot, about a half mile from the starting line, with shuttle service for those who need it. Or, runners can be dropped off at the George Rd. trail kiosk.

Stations along the trail will offer free raffle tickets, cookies, and stickers for kids. The Freeville Community Council and Freeville 4-H Green Lions are sponsoring nature walks from the Freeville kiosk at 10, 10:30 and 11 am.

Family-friendly activities will include box car races, an old-fashioned bean bag toss, LilySilly puppet making, giant Jenga, railroad bingo and crafts, along with a raffle ticket drawing at 1:30 pm.

Maddy Walsh of the Blind Spots, a nationally touring band, will team up with her father, Ted Walsh, a former Dryden teacher and administrator, to provide music as MaddDaddy.

Food trucks Dos Amigos, Eat The Foood, and Dragonfly Grille will sell brunch and lunch at the pavilion. Official Dryden Rail Trail water bottles, stickers, and backpacks will be for sale, and tickets for special raffle items will be sold.

Disability parking will be available at Old George Road. All others are encouraged to walk, bike or run to the celebration from marked parking locations at the trail heads in Dryden and in Freeville. The Dryden Recreation Department will provide shuttle service back to the villages from 1 to 3 pm.

Sponsors of the Opening Celebration are Whitmore Fence Co., Upscale Remodeling, B&B Flooring, and Bailey Place Insurance. The William George Agency is providing the event pavilion.

Background
The Town of Dryden formed the Rail Trail Task Force in March 2016 to reclaim easements and convert the abandoned railroad corridor into a recreational trail.
The trail lies along the old railroad bed and, once the full trail is completed, will connect Dryden, Freeville, Etna and Varna to the greater Ithaca trail system.

Support for the Trail

The project has received generous support from NYS Parks Recreation and Historic Preservation, Tompkins County Tourism and Capital Improvement and Parks and Trails, Cornell University and AARP grants.

Also crucial in building the trail have been contributions from the Dryden Department of Public Works, RMS Gravel, Mix Brothers Construction, S&S Tree Service and Schickel Construction, and dozens of local volunteers.

Last month, Governor Cuomo announced a $1.5 million grant from the Federal Highway Administration through the State Department of Transportation to continue development of the trail from Pinckney Rd. to Game Farm Rd., including a pedestrian crossing at Route 13.

On Tuesday morning in Sapsucker Woods, I joined Tom Hoebbel, Holly Adams, Diane Morton, Laurie Ray, Leigh Stivers, and several others in watching at least one female and six male CAPE MAY WARBLERS in the flowering pear trees at the footbridge at the western split of the Wilson Trail North. The gray sky and the near-constant zooming combat among the males made for challenging viewing, but with patience, we all got extremely good looks. I don&euro;&trade;t think I&euro;&trade;d ever previously seen so many Cape May Warblers so close together for so long.

NORTHERN PARULAS were offering excellent views here too. Other warblers were a bit harder to find, but collectively I think we found at least a dozen other species, including WILSON&euro;&trade;S, BAY-BREASTED, BLACKBURNIAN, BLACK-THROATED BLUE, BLACK-THROATED GREEN, BLUE-WINGED, BLACK-AND-WHITE, and NORTHERN WATERTHRUSH.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Squirrel starts bird mob behavior, FOY Baltimore Oriole arrives
A squirrel climbed up a crabapple tree in my backyard this morning and
started making an alarm call. Within a minute, a grackle came and landed
near the squirrel, but slightly above, and was looking down and then
started adding to the alarm. I assumed it was one of my neighbors wandering
cats as I see birds often mob when one comes by. I've seen a squirrel do
this by itself, but this is the first time I saw a squirrel do it with
birds! Then two more grackles came. They were triangulating the target of
their wrath! Then came a mourning dove who just watched and then I think I
heard a blue jay. My memory fades at this point, as everyone left shortly
after as the threat probably went in another direction.

Shortly thereafter, I heard my first Baltimore Oriole of the year. It was
dining in the crabapple.

Nexrad was right on this AM when we checked around the sanctuary and
added Blackburnian. Black-throated Green and Bay Breasted Warblers as
well as Red-eyed Vireo and an Eastern Wood Pewee.
The quince are now in full bloom much to the delight of the Orioles
that
have ben here for several days and the hummer who finally arrived at
noon. That brings the year list for the sanctuary to 93 species.

Hi All,
We had a Wood Thrush singing its heart out tonight here in the village of Skaneateles. That is a new yard bird. Must be all the trees we have planted make things a bit more attractive even if It is only a pit stop. On the other hand the Red-breasted Nuthatch pair continues in our yard. I thought they would have left by now.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Yellow-Throated Warbler in southwest part of Ovid this afternoon
At 12:45 this afternoon, a Yellow-Throated Warbler, which had spent the
last 5 minutes in clear view working over a bare walnut tree about 20'
away from me, flew off to the north.  It has not been refound and
although there is a fair amount of warbler chatter on our property today
(mostly Yellow-Rumps), I suspect it has moved on.  This is the third
time in 11 years that we briefly have hosted at YT warbler, and the one
seen by Dave Kennedy earlier this year was just over 3 miles north of us
along the Seneca Lake shoreline, so while it was a delightful surprise,
it was not unprecedented.  My theory is that they continue to wend their
way northward along the lake shore which, if true, means that Willard
WMA, Bonavista Golf Course, and the Lakeshore Trail of Sampson State
Park (where Dave Kennedy found his bird) all are possible places it
could be headed. If anyone is birding those places this evening or
tomorrow morning, you might want to keep an eye out for it.

Well all my regulars have finally arrived here in Auburn. A male RTH Hummingbird just showed up at the feeder. Yesterday I had a surprise visit of a 10 member flock of Pine Siskins. I have both sexes of RB Grosbeaks. Got pictures of the female Grosbeak and P Finch on both sides of the feeder. Now I’ll be able to tell them apart. A Catbird and House Wren finally showed up Friday. I have two pair of P Finches which I hope will stay. They were around all winter. I have large numbers of WTH Sparrows and WC Sparrows.

I really appreciate having so many birds coming to my feeders since I’m stuck at home after a hip operation. They are better entertainment than screens.

My neighbor who lives a few houses south reported that at about 9:30 am today she saw a WHITE PELICAN flying north over Cayuga Lake.
She noticed the black trailing edges on the wings and the long yellow bill on the large white bird.
Said she couldn't believe her eyes, but it was a pelican!
Too bad I was not looking at the lake at that time.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Eastern kingbird. Ithaca country club
At about 10 am an eastern kingbird was hawking insects (assumed) from tips of white pine crowns in woods between Pleasant Grove road and the country club proper, until chased off by a nesting crow which has a nest very near to its activity.

About 4 Barn Swallows arrived today at their traditional summer home in
our barns.  We had begun to worry that we would not see them this year.

In past years we had taken down the previous year's nests, which did not
seem to make any difference to the birds.  This year the old nests are
still up.  Let's see what happens.

After reading so many exciting bird posts in the last few days, I knew I
had to go out looking for warblers this am. Right off of Lounsberry Rd
(Brooktondale) is the Brookton Cemetery which rises above rushing 6 Mile
Creek and is framed by a mature deciduous forest. High up in the maples I
saw 3-4 Golden-winged Warblers, 2 Hooded Warblers and several Yellow-rumped
Warblers. On the way home, along the creek a Scarlet Tanager was feeding.

If you go, note that ALL of this property is private.  Please bird only
from the road and do not trespass!  The folks who own the land are very
private and do not welcome strangers walking on it.  Plus there are no

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Hawthorn poss Phila V
Brief stop at Hawthorn this morning found the trees hopping with Wilson, blue wing, chestnut, Nashville; poss vireo sweep with red-eye, warbling, blue-headed, and a sorta-yellow sorta-warblerish bird high in the tree that could be a Philadelphia video. May or may not have gotten lousy photos to check later.

An FOY hummingbird carefully (urgently?) foraging along my gooseberry bushes an hour ago so the FOY feeders are now out. Not sure if male or female. Distant and watched without binocs.

Unexpected white-crowned sparrow under the feeders.

Our feeders are so loaded with Pine Siskins, Purple Finch, Rose-breasted
Grosbeaks, Red-breasted Nuthatch,White Throats, Chippies and others that
it almost feels like the ADK.

Yesterday morning we had a singing Blue-winged Warbler among the new

I’ve been popping over from lab every few days when I get a chance during
lunch and as of today (as far as I know) the Baltimore orioles are back at
Beebe Lake on Cornell campus! There were at least 3 males and at least one
female hanging around last year. Maybe the same ones now?

Also seen were palm warblers and yellow-rumped warblers, among our other
favorites.

Subject: RE: [cayugabirds-l] bobolinks and yellowthroat/mowing
Hi Eric,

The Cornell U. Cooperative Extension publication entitled Hayfield Management and Grassland Bird Conservation by Jim Ochterski (CCE of Schuler County; <jao14...><mailto:<jao14...>) says this on page 2:

“To be considered good habitat for grassland birds, a grass hayfield needs to remain substantially unmown through the breeding season, which begins in early May and ends by mid-July across most of New York State. During this time hayfields grow vigorously, providing shelter, nesting areas among the grass stems, and a source of insects that comprise bird diets. Any significant disturbance, like mowing or manure application, will cause most nest to fail. Alfalfa hay stands are generally unsuitable for grassland birds.

In New York, breeding grassland birds will begin identifying territories from late April through May. Nest building and egg laying occur through early June and young birds tend to hatch by mid to late June. The ability to fly for cover and feeding(called ‘fledging’ ) develops by early July.”

The article has a calendar which shows the dates May 14 thru July 22 as times when MOWING DETRIMENTAL to grassland birds.

Speaking of Bobolinks, my neighbor just asked me if it was ok to mow now before they make their nests. I wasn't sure of best timing for early mowing so wanted to touch base with the collective experience on this list. What are best practices I can share with my neighbors as far as when to NOT mow (beginning and end of season) to support field birds.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] OT- Cayuga Bird Club trip tomorrow 5/4
WhenSat, May 4, 7:30am – 4:30pm
*Where: Finger Lakes National Forest- Teeter Pond*
*No registration necessary- all are welcome.*
. I will be leading an all day field trip in the Finger Lakes National
Forest and possibly other sites in Schuyler County for a casual Schuyler
County Big Day. We will spend most of the day in the Finger Lakes NF,
searching for migrant and resident birds in a variety of habitats - mature
forest, scrubland, grassland, and several ponds within the forest to
maximize our chances for high species diversity. Depending on time and
interest, we may head down to the south end of Seneca Lake and Catherine
Creek Marsh for wetland species and waterfowl. I plan on being in the field
all day, but participants are welcome to depart early or arrive late
(contact me via text/call for a rendezvous 570-362-2548). This will be an
all day trip in rustic habitat with limited facilities. I'll plan on a
brief stop for lunch/snacks, but bring water and dress for the weather and
possible mucky trails. We will meet at the parking lot at Teeter Pond in
the Finger Lakes National Forest at 7:30am. From Searsburg Rd (CR 1) turn
north on Potomac Rd. and turn left (west) at the T intersection. The
parking lot is on the south side of the road across from Horton Pasture.
There is an eBird hotspot for Finger Lakes NF-Teeter Pond
https://ebird.org/hotspot/L940987 that has a clickable link for directions.
If you have questions, contact me at <cedarshiva...>, or for a faster
response, by text at the number above.
Hope to see you there!Josh

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Merlin nest info.
Hi Folks,

I have monitored nesting success of Merlins for four previous years. This year neat finding has been really slow. I know of a probable nest near Freeville and a probable nest near the Ithaca swim club and a third in Endicott. The adults are flying around the probably nest, but not yet incubating. From other years my earliest incubation date has been 1 May with some nests considerably later.

This year I have made probably 2-6 trips to every report of a Merlin sighting, either those sent to me (at <confergoldwing...>) or posted to eBird. Boy, either they are getting more sneaky, or my skill is dropping. Well, my hearing isn't as good, and I can't get out at daylight, which I have found to be the most fruitful time.

I have used the observations for science publications and popular science education. I don't tell people about nests if the only access is on private property, and I don't tell people about a nest until the nestlings are fairly old, at which point the adults are very unlikely to desert. I have found nests on the border of school grounds, in branches over roads and even highways, and adjacent to really busy sidewalks. I followed one nest adjacent to another conifer that was cut down as the adults fed the nestlings in order to make way for the installation of an above ground swimming pool. And the young fledged. I don't like to take any chances with disturbing nesting birds, but I think Merlin are extraordinairly well adapted to humans.

I find it interesting that I have never found a really rural Merlin nest. Surely nests in urban/suburban areas are morel likely to be ofund. But none out of 24 in rural areas. Not sure why that should be.

Love to hear about any probable Merlin nest, thanks.

John Confer

Coming out on my porch in the village of Trumansburg at dawn this morning the 3rd I was greeted by the wheep call of the GREAT CRESTED FLYCATCHER. Further down Bradley there was a GRAY CATBIRD song coming out of the forsythia. Down off of Salo Dr there was the first BALTIMORE ORIOLE male calling.
Overall on the dawn walk there were 4 Catbirds, a small flock of PURPLE FINCH, with some singing, and two WHITE-THROATED SPARROWS singing in the same vicinity off of Salo. Could not come up with a single warbler.

ps, there have been several people posting results from their homes; I imagine most of the regulars recognize the birders’ names and know the whereabouts of these posts, but I’m still fairly new to the area and would appreciate if people posting would at the minimum put their town or village name in as part of their signature. Thanks!

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] More migrants
Looking at the radar before work early this morning, I can tell there is a lot of bird movement, so today (Fri 3 May) should bring additional interesting & new birds.

Yesterday I was in touch with Reuben Stoltzfus, who found Blue-winged Warbler and Bobolink from a work site on Caswell Rd in Dryden. As he left, he got word of the Townsend’s Warbler which Dave Wheeler had discovered at Sodus Bay, and had his driver take him there, joining many birders to see that rarity. While there, Reuben discovered a wren which others helped ID as a Sedge Wren. On his way home, Reuben had his driver swing through the Wildlife Drive at Montezuma where he found an Orchard Oriole near the Seneca Trail.

It’s going to take awhile to get all the new basin birds into the table, but I’ll work on it. Thanks for all the reports!

Yesterday, here at my Alder Pond home outside Mecklenberg, I had FOY Baltimore Oriole, and this morning I saw FOY Yellow Warbler, FOY Rose-breasted Grosbeak and FOY Ovenbird. Four Wood Thrushes were singing in the woods. They just returned a couple of days ago. It’s like the song says, “Spring is bustin’ out all over”.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Mount Pleasant Bobolinks!
Around 10:30 this morning I hear my first Bobolinks of the season in the field overlooked by the communications tower on Mt Pleasant Rd. (Although because of the socked-in fog I couldn't see them).

Also, some of you will have noticed that the eastern end of Mt Pleasant Rd has sprouted 8 new utility poles where there were none before. While that has forever changed Mount Pleasant's "Big Sky" feel, I'm trying to stay positive in the hopes that now more raptors will perch there (think Rough-legs in winter and, who knows, maybe a SEOwl!!).

Hi all,

Today we had first-of-year Oriole, Woodthrush, Hermit Thrush and Catbird. In addition today we have Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, up to 24 Purple Finches, 6 House Finches, a bunch of Goldfinches and up to 10 Pine Siskins, White-throated Sparrows, Chipping Sparrows, White breasted and Red breasted Nuthatch, Titmouse and a female Pileated all at the feeders (but not at once!). Ruby-crowned Kinglets are singing in the yard as are Cardinals and Song Sparrows and Tree Swallows are checking out a box along the edge of the pond. Nice foggey spring morning!

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Lindsay Parsons This Morning
I got in an hour of hill climbing behind the fire station this morning before the rain set in. And it seemed like every few steps I took, another species began to sing!

Highlights of the walk were, for me, FOY Canada, Prairie, Black and White and Black-throated Green Warblers, Ovenbird, Evening Grosbeak and Baltimore Orioles, Hermit and Wood Thrushes. The Canada Warbler was an especially thrilling sighting, as it sang its typical song with chips - directly overhead and at close range.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Baldwin Tract Quiet, but Winter Wren...
A walk at the Baldwin Tract of the Park Preserve was surprisingly
quiet this morning--no waterthrushes (not even a Yellow-rumped
Warbler), but did hear a Winter Wren in the gorge. Other highlights
were Purple Finches, Red-breasted Nuthatch, Black-throated Green
Warblers, and Ruby-crowned Kinglets. Wildflowers were mostly Spring
Beauties. Didn't feel much like spring today!

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Michigan Hollow
The marsh in Michigan Hollow (Town Of Danby, not Spencer) was covered in a thin skin of ice this morning, before the sun hit it. An American Bittern was pumping loudly. I also heard a single song from a Pied-billed Grebe, and watched a male Harrier surveying his territory. Lots of Wood Ducks, Mallards and Canada Geese, a pair of Hooded Mergansers, plenty of Swamp Sparrows, etcetera. No rails this morning, though I had Virginia Rails there a few days ago.

The Common Gallinule continues this evening on the pond at Sapsucker Woods,
sitting in brush along the dike that forms the southern border of the main
pond, just west of two beaver-chewed trees and southeast of the main dead
snag. May or may not be visible from outside the visitor center, but can be
seen from the Wilson Trail past the blind.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Spring Montezuma Tours
Good afternoon,



I wanted to share a few tour opportunities coming at the Montezuma Audubon Center during the month of May. Going on tours led by Audubon Staff is a great way for beginners to learn all the hot spots of Montezuma birding, or if you're a bit more advanced...well it's nice to be driven around, isn't it?! Hope you can join me this spring.



Wednesday, May 8th, 5:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.

Montezuma Birdwatching Tour

The Montezuma Wetlands Complex is teeming with migratory songbirds, marsh birds, and other wildlife this time of year. Join us for an evening van tour through the Montezuma's marshes, forests and grasslands to explore the abundant wildlife as they prepare for their nocturnal activities. Bring your camera to capture images of the beautiful habitats and wildlife. Binoculars and field guides provided. Fee: $8/child, $15/adult. PRE-PAID RESERVATIONS REQUIRED.



Saturday, May 11th, 1:00 p.m. - 4:00p.m.

Subject: Re: [cayugabirds-l] Yellow-throated Warblers
Yes, there are several species of dragonfly that are migratory. The
Common Green Darner, a long term study species of ours) is the most
common. The Tramea (saddlebags), Anax longipes (Comet darner) and
others are also migrant. In fall the Green Darner and others head
southward. The Pantala species are famous for their worldwide migratory
escapades.

Some very few observations have indicated that there may be a link
between American Kestrel migration and the Common Green Darner migration
with the former feeding on the latter during the trek. That's practical
but has not been formally studied.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] SSW Gallinule, Osprey, Rusty Blackbirds
There’s been an Osprey on one of the snags in the back pond of Sapsucker Woods the last three mornings. I saw it between 8 and 8:30 the last two mornings. It’s best viewed from the Sherwood Platform at the back of the pond or the bridge between the Wilson Trail and the Visitor Center entrance.

While looking at the Osprey from that bridge this morning, a Common Gallinule walked out of the cattails and started swimming toward the island off shore from the Visitor Center. It was a stunning, close up view, and the first time I recall seeing or hearing one in SSW.

There’s been a flock of about 40 Rusty Blackbirds in SSW the past two days. It moves around, though. Yesterday morning they were foraging in the pools on the Wilson Trail behind the pond. Then at noon yesterday, they were gathered along the Woodleton Boardwalk on the east side of Sapsucker Woods Rd. This morning they were between the road and the Podell Boardwalk on the west side of the road. They have been extremely vocal and can be heard from some distance away.

Other highlights on the Wilson Trail this morning included Ruby-crowned Kinglets and Yellow-rumped Warblers. I did not hear a Northern Waterthrush today, although I heard one near the Sherwood Platform yesterday morning.

Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Yellow-throated Warblers
Further to earlier comments, the species does seem to be surging
northward. Birder friends in NYC have reported them from Central Park
and in every one of the borroughs! Interestingly the migrant Anax
Junius (Common Green Darner) was just reported from NYC yesterday, a
good two weeks after our first sighting here.

Subject: Re: [cayugabirds-l] Myers Point Red-necked Grebe
Apologies for my garbled message yesterday about the female White-winged
Scoter at Myers.  Not sure what happened-tried sending from my phone.

I was at Myers with the CC Bird Study Group (8:30 am) and we did observe
a female White-winged Scoter straight out from the point. It was
close-in for great looks through our scopes.    We also had a Horned
Grebe close in for really nice views.  Very colorful in the morning
sunshine.
