Subject: [nysbirds-l] Slaty-backed Gull
I photographed a distant dark-mantled gull at Indian Point in Fulton today that I called a Lesser Black-backed. It’s been pointed out to me that the bird is actually a (or more likely THE) Slaty-backed Gull first seen at Lock 6 in Oswego on January 16 and not reported since January 19. The bird has a wide tertial crescent with head and neck streaking similar to the Slaty-backed seen a week ago. So the bird is still on the Oswego River and the gulls generally concentrate near the locks and dams where the fish are easier to get.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Harlequin Duck Band Report from Shinnecock Inlet (Suffolk Co.)
,
I thought this resight information would be of statewide interest, and
beyond.

On 6 January, I managed to photograph a banded immature male Harlequin Duck
in the icy waters at Shinnecock Inlet. The bird was sporting a blue band on
its left leg with white characters “CI.” I was extraordinarily lucky to
capture a legible photo of the leg band and didn’t even notice it until I
was processing photos later that evening. Out of the dozens of photos I
captured I had one opportunity where the bird rolled to its right while
preening, briefly exposing its left leg and ultimately the band.

There are several researchers in North America (both East and West Coast)
who band Harlequins within their respective, isolated breeding territories.
What makes this resight particularly remarkable is the fact that "CI" was
banded at Glacier National Park in Montana this past summer (2017).

Harlequin Ducks have historically been divided into two separate and
distinct ranges; the Pacific coast and the Atlantic coast. Early
nomenclature actually delineated two subspecies;* H. h. histrionicus*
(Atlantic) and *H. h. pacificus* (Pacific) but this distinction is no
longer recognized. Based on past and current research, it has always been
understood that western breeding populations winter along the Pacific coast
and eastern populations along the Atlantic, as one would expect. According
to the research, the 6 January 2018 Shinnecock resight constitutes the
first ever documented record of a "Pacific coast" Harlequin Duck migrating
to the Atlantic coast. There is a previous record of a juvenile, first-fall
Harlequin Duck, also with Montana origins, taken by a duck hunter on Lake
Erie a few years ago. I’m still working to track down the details of that
record (location, date, etc.) but other than that, there is no existing
evidence that West Coast breeding populations make the long journey east
across the continent to winter along the Atlantic coast. Needless to say,
this new evidence raises many questions and will keep the research teams
scratching their heads for some time. Hopefully continued related studies
will shed more light on the complex life history of this declining species.

Photos of the bird can be viewed in my eBird checklist:
http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S41702140

Big thanks to Lucas Savoy from BRI (Biodiversity Research Institute) for
helping me track down the band origins.

Best,
Derek Rogers

Subject: [nysbirds-l] "Flight" - North Shore Audubon Society film presentation Tuesday, Jan 23, 2018
The North Shore Audubon Society will hold its monthly program on Tuesday, January 23, 2018, from 7pm to 9pm, at the Manhasset Public Library, 30 Onderdonk Avenue, Manhasset NY 11030. All are invited, free of charge.
Public transit users: This location is a half-mile walk from the Manhasset LIRR station.

This month’s presentation will be the film “Flight, the Genius of Birds"
Photographed in North America, England, Peru, Greenland, and Antarctica, FLIGHT probes mysteries and mechanisms of a bird’s anatomy, instinct, navigation, and embryology to reveal stunning provisions essential for life in the skies. You’ll marvel at a hummingbird’s unique systems vital to its spectacular aerial acrobatics; the endurance and navigational abilities of an Arctic tern as it travels from pole to pole during the longest migration on the planet; the instinctive strategies that enable a flock of 300,000 European starlings to evade predators at break-neck speeds; the elaborate network of a million component parts that make a single feather an aerodynamic masterpiece, and much more. The poet William Blake wrote: to see an eagle in the air is to observe a portion of genius.
Film by Illustra Media.

I know it's not in NY, but just wanted report that a good sized flock of 15 adult and immature Sandhill Cranes is wintering in Manville, Somerset Co., NJ, along the Manville Causeway and is reliably visible to all.  It is nice to see suck a large flock so close and in the northeast.  Hopefully the numbers in New England and NY will eventually reach that number in each state and more:-)  It's so nice to have them living and breeding in the area.

I explored the course to no avail last weekend, but there were many, many geese out there, coming and going throughout the day. There was parking and access on Commonwealth Boulevard along the eastern border. Lots of families were at the park to sled on the rolling hills of the course. I don’t know if it’s “come one, come all” access or open to local residents or what, but no one spoke up or stopped the exploration of a birder who simply followed the lead of the sled-toting parents.

Cheers!

There is a vantage point from 61st Avenue (the right turn at the top of the hill, after the shopping plaza). The view is limited, as I don’t think you can see over the high points a few hundred yards out. There’s a road into the golf course here, but it looks to me like it’s for maintenance vehicles. I’ve never actually gone inside, but you would think there should be a public access point. The golf course is administered by NYC Parks. Now I’m motivated to try finding out – harder than I’ve tried in the past.

I went chasing after this goose yesterday. I checked the small pool where it was reported, between LIE and Douglaston PKWY. I saw around 30 Canada geese. No GWFG.

The geese flew off toward the hill east of the pool. I looked at the map and I saw a large golf course there. I thought the geese might use this golf course for feeding.

I circled the whole area but I couldn't find any spot where I could see the inside of the golf course.

I gave up and left.

If anyone has access to this golf course, or knows a spot where it can be seen from outside, the goose might be still there.

I was curious to see if any geese came into Alley Pond overnight, and got a chance to check, with the rain holding off. But only about 10 geese were there. Seems pretty quick to change roosting spots. The nearest possibility that I can think of is Lake Success, which is a few miles away. I took a look at a couple of the spots that I had mentioned. Only a small number were on the field by Oakland Lake. The ballfields look to be dug up, perhaps being converted to turf. It doesn’t look like a viable feeding spot anymore. If that’s the case, a lot of the local geese could have just moved on. We’ll see. The lawn around the pond should be snowless soon enough.



There were, however, a few new ducks on Alley Pond, most notably a Canvasback. Having missed a pair that were briefly on Oakland Lake about five years ago, this is my first one in northeast Queens in maybe 25 years. They used to winter commonly on Little Neck Bay. Sort of the waterfowl version of Bonapartes’ Gull. But anyway, for local year listers, this could be easier than some other options.

Subject: Queens Gr. White-fronted Goose Update



As far as I know, it was not seen today at Alley Pond. I know it was looked for this morning, but there were much fewer geese than yesterday at a comparable time of the morning. Based on the previous reports, it would seem that the geese were roosting there, making the early morning the best time. My plan for today was to watch them coming in to roost in the late afternoon. Well, the 40 or so geese that were there when I arrived at 3:30 left shortly thereafter. As of 4:45, only one lone Canada had come in. I suppose it’s possible that they could come in after dark. It’s not the way I think they do it, but who knows? I’m pretty sure I’ve heard geese flying over my house at night. There was one flock that flew by Alley Pond around 4:20, coming from the northwest, but they kept going toward the east. At least that reminded me of a couple of other spots to look, if you’re moved to do so.



Oakland Lake (Cloverdale Blvd., just south of Northern Blvd.), which is currently mostly frozen. Geese sometimes feed on the field across the street from the lake or on the grass along the entrance ramp to the Cross Island Parkway, but that’s more likely when there’s an open lake to go back to.



The ball fields at Cardozo High School and Queensboro Community College (on 56th Avenue, west of Cloverdale).



Douglaston Golf Course.



And when not snow covered, geese will feed right around Alley Pond. We’ll see how much the rain melts away tomorrow.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Lone Redhead - Lake Ronkonkoma, Suffolk
Today, in the small area of open water the lone duck turned out to be a
female Redhead. Viewed from the Islip Pavilion on the west/southwest side
of the lake. This is a first for me for this species at this location.

Additionally, the Eurasian Wigeon is still at the Mill Pond in Sayville.

Also of note a juv. Snow Goose and Cackling Goose were seen on the golf
course of the VA in Northport on Friday. The snow goose continues from the
"Northport Count" a few weeks ago. Birding their can be tricky. The snow
goose was seen like a beacon when driving on Middleville Road. There is a
parking area right when you turn in to get a quick scope view, turned out a
Cackling was mixed in as well.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Bittern and Hawks, Nassau and Suffolk
At least one American Bittern was observed at Tobay Beach’s JFK Memorial Wildlife Sanctuary, judging by timing and takeoff location it could’ve been two individuals. I also had a rapidly-glimpsed hawk taking off through the trees between the lot and the hidden pond: based on proportions, size, and flight style it certainly looked like it could’ve been the reported Red-shouldered Hawk. Views were too brief and too obscured to be certain, but someone might want to follow up. A light morph Rough-leg was also perched in the median near Cedar Beach Marina.

Cheers!

The issue with the marker disappearing after selecting the Google Maps

"appears to be a maps.google.com difference ... .uk, .de, .se, .ca, .au,

not."

After this I've changed all the links to the .ca extension. Links for all

map has been adjusted for each location based it's size and to show the
site at its best where Google labels exist.

If you see any issues with the placement of any markers please let me know.
I've been placing them at nearby parking locations or at the entrance of
the site or at the south or east edge of the location to keep the sun
behind you when starting out.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Oswego Gulls Saturday 1-20-18
I had no luck with either the Slaty-backed Gull or Mew Gull today in the
Oswego area (best gull for me was a 1st winter Iceland Gull - on the river
near lock 6).

At Oswego Harbor Kyle Brock scoped 1 bird on the break wall to the east,
and a woman who's name I can't recall had spotted another on the east side
of the harbor at the base of a large tower (perhaps a radio tower).

That being said, I also have a request - if anyone is familiar with the
permit requirements for keeping study skins or mounted birds for a school
collection please contact me at the email provided (I know that DEC and
USFWS both require permits, but any insight as to the particulars would be
helpful).

Best of luck if you go for the gulls - hopefully they will be re-found!

Subject: [nysbirds-l] In pursuit of 3 correctly sized sheet-metal screws: hello raptor rapture !
While trying to repair my shower door, I found the need for 3 larger screws
than I had in my stockpile. Arriving at Griffing's Hardware in Riverhead,
as I got out of the car, I looked up to see a Red-tailed Hawk circling
overhead...a possible sign ? After purchasing what I needed, I routed
myself through the "Turkey Vulture Roosting Complex"...with the center of
same being the Roanoke Elementary School, and then branching out for about
a "city block" in all directions.

First, as I was heading n/on Griffing Ave, I saw 2 T.V. on, and at the rear
of, the school's chimney. As I continued on Griffing, I noticed a huge # of
vultures in the 3 spruces located on the w/s, between the 1st & 2nd houses
s/o Lincoln St. While trying to get an accurate count, something caused
most of them to take flight. Over no more than 5 minutes, all the birds
flew off and scattered. My suspect count, grew to 40-45 vultures, including
2 sure, plus 1 possible, Black Vultures. This # would coincide with a pers.
comm. I received earlier in the week of 3 B.V. on the school's chimney. I
then checked the front of said chimney, finding 4 T.V. there. My last
sighting was of a large # of vultures in the 3 spruce trees on the w/s of
Roanoke Ave, at the intersection of Elton Ave, but It was too dark to get a
meaningful count. Today's activity took place between 1645 and 1710.
Because none of the locations noted are within sight of each other, the
true # of vultures today might even have reached 50. To be continued...by
man people, I hope !

Cheers,
Bob

Subject: Re:[nysbirds-l] The delicate politics of chasing owls.
I agree with the logic of this article, and have made the same argument for years. Owls are not particularly vulnerable to disturbance, and they are spectacular ambassadors to non-birders. Do you know how many Northern Saw-whet and Boreal owls exist in the world, and how few ever encounter people (other than, perhaps, over-exuberant banders ;^))? One in a publicly-available spot can generate so much goodwill that, as an educator, I would argue to disturb its sleep a few times so that people can experience it.


It's boils down to the old saw: people only protect what they love, and they don't love anything they don't know. And, I would add that the best way to learn to love owls is to actually see one face-to-face in the wild.


But, from my experience on this issue, people seem to have become almost as religious in their views as the cats-as-predators one. I am happy to see a logical, not emotional public piece about it, nonetheless.


That's my humble opinion, and I don't expect everyone to agree. Just saying...

Kevin

When working on the NYS eBird Hotspots wiki I'll compare the previous bar
chart list of species with the current one picking up any additions or
deletions. By going to each county's 'Overview' page you can determine the
date the species was added by county. Some are from newly submitted
checklists from many months / years ago.

It isn't possible to spot these additions from old checklists. On the
'Overview' page you can sort on 'First Seen' but if the species wasn't
added recently it won't appear at the top of the list.

For each county on the NYS eBird Hotspots site click the 'Overview' link on
the 'Explore a Location' line:

Subject: Re: [nysbirds-l] King Eider continues at Point Lookout
In addition to the adult male, a subadult male and a female were also seen
today in the same area, along with Harlequin Ducks, a Common Goldeneye, and
several thousand Greater Scaup.

I spent a decent amount of time trying to relocate the hundreds to
thousands of Lesser Scaup that have been reported by multiple observers at
this location lately. We all know that Greater is the saltwater species,
and there are rarely any other Aythya species in the area, but yes there
was the recent little Ice Age and some Lessers did make it to the coast.
Today I was only able to locate a single pair that looked right for Lesser
Scaup. Now there were many scaup that were in bad lighting or too far to
observe, but I implore anyone submitting Lesser to eBird to provide photos
or give a very thorough description. There are over 50 recent checklists
from the Jones Inlet area that include Lesser Scaup but until today none
had any photos nor any discussion of the difficult identification.

My point is that this was a remarkable waterfowl movement event and it
needs to be documented accurately. Also the eBird review system can only
generate one "Question about your Lesser Scuap" email at a time and
reviewer are unpaid volunteers, so please think of them too!

Today's checklist: http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S42103707

Happy birdwatching,
Brendan

Subject: [nysbirds-l] King Eider continues at Point Lookout
The male King Eider was present again today at Point Lookout near the second westernmost jetty. Though the temperatures were mild, the waters were pretty choppy, making spotting challenging at times. So I considered myself lucky to get some passable video of the bird.

When reviewing my footage, I noted an interesting eider-like bird. I suspect it was an immature common eider, as it had a black cap and some white on the back. But its bill seemed on the small side (particularly compared to a nearby eider), in some frames it seemed to have a bit of a yellow to orangish hue, and it had an “uncommon” smile-like facial pattern. I wondered if it might be a common-king hybrid. I linked a photo and video of the bird, as well as a video of the king eider to my ebird post: http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S42101440

When working on the NYS eBird Hotspots wiki I'll compare the previous bar
chart list of species with the current one picking up any additions or
deletions. By going to each county's 'Overview' page you can determine the
date the species was added by county. Some are from newly submitted
checklists from many months / years ago.

It isn't possible to spot these additions from old checklists. On the
'Overview' page you can sort on 'First Seen' but if the species wasn't
added recently it won't appear at the top of the list.

For each county on the NYS eBird Hotspots site click the 'Overview' link on
the 'Explore a Location' line:

[~BEGIN RBA TAPE~]

Greetings! This is the New York Rare Bird Alert for Friday, January 19,
2018 at 9:00 pm.

The highlights of today’s tape are MEW GULL, PURPLE GALLINULE, TOWNSEND’S
SOLITAIRE, PINK-FOOTED, ROSS’S and GREATER WHITE-FRONTED GEESE, TUNDRA
SWAN, KING EIDER, HARLEQUIN DUCK, EURASIAN WIGEON, BLACK-HEADED and ICELAND
GULLS, ROUGH-LEGGED HAWK and more.

Note: Tomorrow’s Brooklyn pelagic trip has been postponed to February 4.

An adult MEW GULL was photographed Tuesday morning on Veterans Memorial
Pier in Brooklyn, the bird remaining for a short period of time before
heading off towards Staten Island. Based on plumage, this is the western
North American form brachyrhynchus thought by the finder to perhaps be the
same individual noted in Brooklyn twice last winter. Unfortunately, this
bird has not been seen on the pier since, but on Wednesday and again
Thursday morning, the pier did produce an immature BLACK-HEADED GULL, this
same species and perhaps also the same individual later occurring at
Brooklyn Bridge Park late Thursday afternoon.

Very unexpected, two PURPLE GALLINULES were found recently on Long Island,
unfortunately neither surviving the experience. An adult was found dead on
Tuesday in Southampton, while a second, age unknown as of now, was brought
to a Suffolk County rehabilitator, where it also apparently passed away.
More to come, if we get it.

The Oyster Bay TOWNSEND’S SOLITAIRE was still present yesterday, continuing
to visit the field along Sandy Hill Road at the Tiffany Creek Preserve.
The Preserve entrance and parking area are on the western side of Sandy
Hill Road, and the Solitaire field is a little farther up the road just
beyond a private road. Look especially on the eastern side of the field
around a fruit-filled juniper or the nearby bittersweet. This bird often
arrives and then disappears quickly and can be absent for quite a while,
often requiring patience.

Among the specialty wintering Geese, the PINK-FOOTED GOOSE was still
present in Montauk today, feeding on the Deep Hollow Ranch pastures with
CANADAS on the south side of Route 27 east of town. When not there, it has
been seen on the fairways at Montauk Downs Golf Course.

Two ROSS’S GEESE were with hundreds of CANADAS on Hook Pond in East Hampton
this afternoon, and these two have also been seen on fields off Stephen
Hands Path in East Hampton. Two ROSS’S GEESE were also reported from
Merritt Pond in Riverhead last Saturday, and we have no additional
information on the bird at Baisley Pond in Queens since Monday.

A GREATER WHITE-FRONTED GOOSE was still visiting the Restoration Pond at
Alley Pond Park in Queens through yesterday, and one was spotted again on
Tung Ting Pond in Centerport Tuesday.

Two TUNDRA SWANS on Hook Pond Tuesday were presumably the same two seen in
flight west of there today.

A EURASIAN WIGEON was seen again at the Marine Park Salt Marsh Nature
Center in Brooklyn last Saturday, and another continues on Mill Pond in
Sayville.

The drake KING EIDER was still with COMMONS off the Point Lookout jetties
yesterday, and watch for other KINGS in the COMMON EIDER flock off the
Jones Beach West End jetty. A subadult male King Eider was present today
just inside Shinnecock Inlet.

Up to eight HARLEQUIN DUCKS can also be seen around the Point Lookout
jetties, and another HARLEQUIN was reported off Eatons Neck Point Saturday.

A RED-NECKED GREBE was off Floyd Bennett Field recently, with another also
around Jones Inlet.

Besides a few ICELAND GULLS noted at various Brooklyn sites this week, at
least four different ICELANDS continue around the west side of Montauk
Harbor Inlet.

Thirty-nine RAZORBILLS were counted off Montauk Point this morning, with
three more off Montauk harbor inlet.

ROUGH-LEGGED HAWKS on Long Island were noted at Target Rock NWR Saturday
and at Tobay Monday, and AMERICAN BITTERNS have been noted this week at
Tobay and along Dune Road.

To phone in reports, on Long Island call Tony Lauro at (631) 734 4126 or
call Tom Burke at (914) 967-4922 and leave a message.

This service is sponsored by the Linnaean Society of New York and the
National Audubon Society. Thank you for calling.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Snowy Owl Quest
Having yet to see my first snowy this season, this afternoon I headed down
to Dune Rd., and wound up covering it completely, from Shinnicock Inlet
(Hampton Bays) to Cupsogue Co. Park (West Hampton Dunes)...with no change
in that dubious distinction ! I did, however, see an A.Bittern in open
water on the bay side, opposite house #79, in addition to a single Clapper
Rail, in open water on the bay side, between the 1st & 2nd poles w/o house
# 79.

Earlier, while heading s/on Rt.105 in Riverhead, I had a possible old
friend pass overhead - I refer, of course, to "Lonesome George", the
solitary Turkey Vulture !

Cheers,
Bob
P.S...I mention the following in a historical sense: On 1/5/18 a pair of
C.Ravens rested for a short while in the White Pines located in our

Subject: Re:[nysbirds-l] [ebirdsnyc] Dune Road Rails
Fellow Bird Watchers,
    On the question of the Rail, I would like to thank those who shared opinions with us for the their thoughts through these list severs as well as on Flickr through the bird ID help group.  There are some opinions supporting any one of three rails, Clapper, Virginia, and King.   After consulting the Stokes and Sibley field guides I have to agree with Clapper Rail.  
    The facial pattern does not appear to be as strongly contrasting as what I see in the field guides for Virginia Rail.  The leg colouration appears wrong too for Virginia Rail, although the beck colouration does.  However that could be a consequence of the afternoon lighting.  Another feature is that Virginia Rails constantly flick their tails which I never observed in these birds.
    The possibility of King Rail was raised, but I don't think that is it either for the following reasons.  The scapular streaks on the back are not as "neat" as shown in the field guides for King Rail.  Also, these birds appear to have a dark neck which is wrong for King Rail.  Finally, even though the birds were at a far distance, I did not get the overall impression of a very large bird.  
    These birds appear a bit brighter than any clapper Rail I have seen.  The Sibley guide shows a Gulf Coast population that closely resembles these birds.  Any possibility of that?
Again, thank you all.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] NYSOA Winter Weekend in Adirondacks Feb. 10-11, 2018
Information about the NYS Ornithological Association's Winter Weekend in the
Adirondacks is below:



Winter Weekend in the Central Adirondacks!
Saturday & Sunday, February 10-11, 2018



Cold weather got you down? Join us February 10-11 for a birding weekend in
the central Adirondacks and see some birds that really know how to cope with
winter. With a one-in-twenty-year bumper food crop on the trees of the
Adirondacks, this is the year to see finches and boreal birds in New York
State.



The weekend events include two field trips, a birding workshop, and the
opportunity to socialize with birders from all over New York State. For
those able to arrive in Long Lake by 7 a.m. on Saturday, NYSOA will offer a
pre-workshop field trip led by Joan Collins and Matt Young. At 4:00 p.m.
Matt Young will give a presentation on "Crossbills of New York: Status and
Flight Call Identification." A group dinner will be held at the Adirondack
Hotel in Long Lake Saturday evening. On Sunday morning, Matt Young, Joan
Collins, and Mary Beth Warburton will lead the main field trip beginning at
7:00 a.m.



While the workshop is free and open to the public, both field trips are
limited to 20 participants and pre-registration is required. Registration
is first-come, first-served with preference given to NYSOA members and youth
members of the NYS Young Birders Club. Read all the details and find out
how to register and where to stay by visiting http://www.nybirds.org/ .

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Ulster County Waterfowl Count Results
The Ulster County segment of the annual NYSOA New York State January
Waterfowl Count was conducted this past Saturday, 13 January 2018. As
noted in previous posts, most of the Hudson River was covered in ice and
largely devoid of waterfowl. Kingston Point produced twenty Mallards
and eight American Black Ducks, and three Common Mergansers were found
in limited open water farther south in Highland. Traditionally
productive sites in the north (Saugerties Lighthouse and Glasco) were
iced over. Inland rivers, creeks, and a few ponds and fields provided
the most attractive habitat for this year's survey.

Seventeen participants in eight field parties tallied 2,041 individuals
representing 13 species. Diversity was just about average (12.1
ten-year average), but abundance was well below our ten-year average of
6,244 and the lowest in the fourteen years I have compiled this count.
Canada Geese typically make up a very large percentage of our total
number of individuals. This year's total of 1,263 represents a new
14-year low and was well below our ten-year average of 4,874 birds. A
total of 23 Bald Eagles (17 adults / 6 sub-adult) were noted during the
course of the waterfowl count.

Here is the waterfowl summary:

Snow Goose - 1
Canada Goose - 1,263
Mute Swan - 5
Wood Duck - 1
Gadwall - 3
American Wigeon - 2
American Black Duck - 34
Mallard - 669
Northern Pintail - 2
Common Goldeneye - 3
Hooded Merganser - 4
Common Merganser - 52
Horned Grebe - 2

Thanks to all of the participants for providing extensive coverage of
the county under challenging environmental conditions. A complete
report will appear at a later date on the John Burroughs Natural History
Society website.

It was initially on the water 300-400 yards south of the pier but after a series of short flights it eventually lit on the pier and spent about 10 minutes alternately eating what was probably bread crumbs and preening. Finally flew towards Staten Island and we lost it over the water. Stayed about 15 more minutes but the MEGU did not return.

This most likely is the same bird that was seen twice last winter -once in December 2016 and once in February 2017 and IMO quite possibly the same bird I saw for about 25 minutes on the pier in Feb. 2015 when the bird was in second winter plumage.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] iceland gulls East End of Long Island
I followed up on the Feustel's report of iceland gulls off the west jetty
at Lake Montauk and they were still present as of yesterday afternoon.
There was another iceland gull (first winter) at Accabonac Harbor today,
along with hundreds of long-tailed ducks, and several lesser scaup, common
goldeneye, common loon and red-breasted mergansers. The nearby Pussy's Pond
has 6 hooded mergs present.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] "Machu Picchu" - Queens County Bird Club Presentation this Weds., Jan 17
The Queens County Bird Club will be meeting at the Alley Pond Environmental Center, 228-06 Northern Blvd., Douglaston, NY 11362 >Map of location< <http://goo.gl/8cnmjT>
at 8:00 pm on Wednesday, January 17, 2018. Free admission. Refreshments served.

Ian Resnick will present “Machu Picchu”
In July 2016, QCBC member and former president Ian Resnick birded Machu Picchu, other highland areas in the vicinity, as well as two areas not far from Lima. The first day was a private trip north of Lima, and the rest was a group tour of the highlands starting from Cusco. Approximately 185 species of birds were seen or heard among some of the most amazing scenery in the Andes. The weather for this trip was quite good, in fact too dry in some spots, and very cold at the highest altitudes (over 13,000 feet!).
Ian will be showing his photos from the trip and discussing the various birds seen and sites visited.

*January 16 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm*


*Join pelagic junkies Doug Gochfeld and Sean Sime as they discuss how
Brooklyn became the “go deep or go home” pelagic mecca and how analyzing
seabird data Atlantic-wide has paid immediate dividends in NY waters.Since
the 1970’s New York based pelagics have evolved from “Let’s go offshore”
trips to nowhere to targeted strikes overlaying sea surface temperature,
wind, and chlorophyll charts in concert with our ever increasing knowledge
of seasonal bird movements. With each new trip unknowns are becoming
knowns.http://brooklynbirdclub.org/event/doug-gochfeld-and-sean-sime-present-victory-at-sea-offshore-in-the-age-of-big-data/

Subject: Re: [nysbirds-l] GWFG Continues at Alley Pond
65th Avenue is the closest place to park, and more often than not , there is
a spot or two available. There is a traffic light here and a bus stop. Just
getting beyond the bus stop, a good part of the pond can be viewed even from
the sidewalk. There is a paved trail not too far to the north, but you can
just descend down the grassy hill side before the trail. That'll bring you
down closer to the center of the pond, anyway. And I might as well mention -
now that I have no idea what time of the day this bird will show up -
viewing gets progressively worse into the afternoon if it's sunny.





SW





So park near 65th Avenue (past the fairway shopping center)? Is there a
path
in over there?

... to be continued.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Dune Road Rails
Late yesterday afternoon I found two rails off Dune Road (Bay Side).  The group I was with and I believe it them to be Virginia's Rails.  See pics in the links.  We also found an American Bittern and a few Snowy Owls observed by many people on the road.  Harlequin Ducks, Surf and White-winged Scoters were near the parking lot at Shinnecock inlet.
Virginia Rail?

Una tarde la princesa  vio una estrella aparecer;  la princesa era traviesa  y la quiso ir a coger.  
La quería para hacerla  decorar un prendedor,  con un verso y una perla,  una pluma y una flor.  
Las princesas primorosas  se parecen mucho a ti;  cortan lirios, cortan rosas,  cortan astros. Son así.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] 3 Bald Eagles on Connetquot River (Suffolk Co.)
This afternoon, while covering my territory for the NYSOA January Waterfowl Count, I found 3 immature Bald Eagles perched in close proximity within the closed Paradise Island natural area of Bayard Cutting Arboretum. My vantage point was across the river (east side) at the intersection of Connetquot and Chateau drives in Oakdale (40.7439116,-73.1476513). Distance (~300 yards) and poor lighting made aging them impossible, but possibly siblings fledged from a nearby nesting. Three Bald Eagles in one spot may not be a big deal elsewhere in the state, but this is a first for me on Long Island in 24 years of birding, so somewhat noteworthy.

P.S. The adult male Eurasian Wigeon was still present on Mill Pond in Sayville.

I explored the course to no avail last weekend, but there were many, many geese out there, coming and going throughout the day. There was parking and access on Commonwealth Boulevard along the eastern border. Lots of families were at the park to sled on the rolling hills of the course. I don’t know if it’s “come one, come all” access or open to local residents or what, but no one spoke up or stopped the exploration of a birder who simply followed the lead of the sled-toting parents.

I went chasing after this goose yesterday. I checked the small pool where it was reported, between LIE and Douglaston PKWY. I saw around 30 Canada geese. No GWFG.

The geese flew off toward the hill east of the pool. I looked at the map and I saw a large golf course there. I thought the geese might use this golf course for feeding.

I circled the whole area but I couldn't find any spot where I could see the inside of the golf course.

I gave up and left.

If anyone has access to this golf course, or knows a spot where it can be seen from outside, the goose might be still there.

I was curious to see if any geese came into Alley Pond overnight, and got a chance to check, with the rain holding off. But only about 10 geese were there. Seems pretty quick to change roosting spots. The nearest possibility that I can think of is Lake Success, which is a few miles away. I took a look at a couple of the spots that I had mentioned. Only a small number were on the field by Oakland Lake. The ballfields look to be dug up, perhaps being converted to turf. It doesn’t look like a viable feeding spot anymore. If that’s the case, a lot of the local geese could have just moved on. We’ll see. The lawn around the pond should be snowless soon enough.



There were, however, a few new ducks on Alley Pond, most notably a Canvasback. Having missed a pair that were briefly on Oakland Lake about five years ago, this is my first one in northeast Queens in maybe 25 years. They used to winter commonly on Little Neck Bay. Sort of the waterfowl version of Bonapartes’ Gull. But anyway, for local year listers, this could be easier than some other options.

Subject: Queens Gr. White-fronted Goose Update



As far as I know, it was not seen today at Alley Pond. I know it was looked for this morning, but there were much fewer geese than yesterday at a comparable time of the morning. Based on the previous reports, it would seem that the geese were roosting there, making the early morning the best time. My plan for today was to watch them coming in to roost in the late afternoon. Well, the 40 or so geese that were there when I arrived at 3:30 left shortly thereafter. As of 4:45, only one lone Canada had come in. I suppose it’s possible that they could come in after dark. It’s not the way I think they do it, but who knows? I’m pretty sure I’ve heard geese flying over my house at night. There was one flock that flew by Alley Pond around 4:20, coming from the northwest, but they kept going toward the east. At least that reminded me of a couple of other spots to look, if you’re moved to do so.



Oakland Lake (Cloverdale Blvd., just south of Northern Blvd.), which is currently mostly frozen. Geese sometimes feed on the field across the street from the lake or on the grass along the entrance ramp to the Cross Island Parkway, but that’s more likely when there’s an open lake to go back to.



The ball fields at Cardozo High School and Queensboro Community College (on 56th Avenue, west of Cloverdale).



Douglaston Golf Course.



And when not snow covered, geese will feed right around Alley Pond. We’ll see how much the rain melts away tomorrow.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Northport Winter Bird Count Results (Suffolk County) - 1/13
The second annual Northport Winter Bird Count, a CBC-style census covering
the area between the Smithtown and Northern Nassau CBC circles, from Fort
Salonga to Huntington on the North Shore of Long Island. 13 observers (Ken
and Sue Feustel, Tim Healy, Tim Dunn, Taylor Sturm, Pete Morris, Ernst
Mutchnick, Stefan and Farah Mutchnick, John Gluth, Greg Letica, Brendan
Fogarty, and Brent Bomkamp) recorded a total of 87 species, tying the total
from last year despite freezing conditions leading up to the count and high
winds on the count day. The highlights included:

Snow Goose - Northport VA Hospital (JG) and Northport Power Plant (BF and
BBo)
*Greater White-fronted Goose* - Tung Ting Pond, Centerport (TH)
*Cackling Goose* - Tung Ting Pond (TH) and Crab Meadow, Northport (PM and
TS)
*Harlequin Duck* - Eatons Neck Point (BF and BBo)
Bald Eagle - Centerport (TD), Caumsett (KF and SF), Northport Harbor (PM
and TS)
*Rough-legged Hawk* - Target Rock NWR, Lloyd Neck (KF and SF)
40 Ruddy Turnstone - Caumsett SP (KF and SF)
*Iceland Gull* - Crab Meadow (PM and TS)
Merlin - Partridge Pond Park, Greenlawn (TD)
Brown Thrasher - Carpenter Farm Park, Greenlawn (TD)

Other interesting totals included 38 Canvasback, 509 Common Goldeneye,
Bonaparte's Gull, two Peregrine Falcon, and 32 Brown-headed Cowbird, along
with count week Short-eared Owl and Wilson's Snipe. Unfortunately,
passerine numbers were remarkably low, likely due to the recent weather
patterns. The count will take place the second weekend of January next
year; please let me know if you'd like to participate.

Thanks to everyone who made this count.possible!

[~BEGIN RBA TAPE~]

Greetings! This is the New York Rare Bird Alert for Friday, January 12,
2018 at 9:00 pm.

The highlights of today’s tape are TOWNSEND’S SOLITAIRE, PINK-FOOTED,
ROSS’S and GREATER WHITE-FRONTED GEESE, TUNDRA SWAN, KING EIDER, HARLEQUIN
DUCK and EURASIAN WIGEON, BLACK-HEADED and ICELAND GULLS, EARED GREBE,
RED-HEADED WOODPECKER and more.

The Long Island TOWNSEND’S SOLITAIRE was still present at least through
Wednesday at the Tiffany Creek Preserve east of Oyster Bay. The Preserve
entrance is along Sandy Hill Road on the west side of the road, where
parking is available. The field the Townsend’s frequents is on the east
side of Sandy Hill Road a little north of the Preserve entrance just beyond
a private road. Enter the field and check especially the eastern side of
the field, which has a small group of junipers, one of which contains many
berries and thus attracts the Solitaire.

Notable among the variety of waterfowl present this season, the Montauk
PINK-FOOTED GOOSE apparently is still around; first noted November 28th at
Deep Hollow Ranch, it has only been reported twice since, on the Montauk
Christmas Bird Count December 16 and again yesterday, both times on the
Montauk Downs Golf Course with CANADAS.

A ROSS’S GOOSE has recently been at Baisley Pond Park in Queens, either on
the pond at the north end of the park or on one of the many ballfields
extending south of the pond along 150th Street. Out on Eastern Long Island
2 ROSS’S were seen yesterday and today in East Hampton east of the
intersection of Stephen Hands Path and Route 114, the East Hampton-Sag
Harbor Turnpike.

A GREATER WHITE-FRONTED GOOSE has been visiting Alley Pond Park in Queens,
appearing on a pond at least through Wednesday that is near the
intersection of Douglaston Parkway and the Long Island Expressway. Another
continues to visit Tung Ting Pond in Centerport.

Six TUNDRA SWANS were seen on almost fully frozen Hook Pond in East Hampton
yesterday.

Continuing drake EURASIAN WIGEONS remain on Mill Pond north of the Montauk
Highway in Sayville and on Patchogue Lake, and one was reported flying by
Crab Meadow Beach in Northport Sunday.

A nice collection of ducks around Jones Inlet lately has featured up to
four KING EIDERS, two females, an immature male and an adult male, these
often seen around the jetty at Jones Beach West End, with the adult male
also off the Point Lookout jetties yesterday. Also at Point Lookout have
been up to seven HARLEQUIN DUCKS, including four drakes.

An EARED GREBE was spotted off Shinnecock Inlet Wednesday, eventually
flying further west, and RED-NECKED GREBE has been noted recently around
Jones Inlet.

An adult BLACK-HEADED GULL was seen on the Brooklyn Army Terminal Pier 4
Wednesday, and one was still around Five Islands Park in New Rochelle last
Saturday.

On the west side of the entrance to Montauk Harbor yesterday there were
four ICELAND GULLS, and two were at Brooklyn Bridge Park Wednesday, with
another at the Floyd Bennett Field boat launch today, and a LESSER
BLACK-BACKED GULL was at Crab Meadow Beach Sunday.

Among a few reports of ROUGH-LEGGED HAWKS this week were two at the
Calverton Grasslands and one at Tobay recently, and other interesting
sightings this week have included an AMERICAN BITTERN at Lake Montauk
Thursday, a few WILSON’S SNIPE around, a “WESTERN” WILLET off the Jones
Beach West End Coast Guard Station yesterday, and a RED-HEADED WOODPECKER
still at Mashomack Preserve on Shelter Island Wednesday.

A LAPLAND LONGSPUR was still being seen Wednesday around Field 5 at Robert
Moses State Park, an ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLER was at Kissena Park in Queens
today, and RUSTY BLACKBIRDS are still appearing at various appropriate
locations.

To phone in reports, on Long Island call Tony Lauro at (631) 734 4126 or
call Tom Burke at (914) 967-4922 and leave a message.

This service is sponsored by the Linnaean Society of New York and the
National Audubon Society. Thank you for calling.

Subject: RE: [nysbirds-l] Queens Gr. White-fronted Goose Update
There is a vantage point from 61st Avenue (the right turn at the top of the hill, after the shopping plaza). The view is limited, as I don’t think you can see over the high points a few hundred yards out. There’s a road into the golf course here, but it looks to me like it’s for maintenance vehicles. I’ve never actually gone inside, but you would think there should be a public access point. The golf course is administered by NYC Parks. Now I’m motivated to try finding out – harder than I’ve tried in the past.

I went chasing after this goose yesterday. I checked the small pool where it was reported, between LIE and Douglaston PKWY. I saw around 30 Canada geese. No GWFG.

The geese flew off toward the hill east of the pool. I looked at the map and I saw a large golf course there. I thought the geese might use this golf course for feeding.

I circled the whole area but I couldn't find any spot where I could see the inside of the golf course.

I gave up and left.

If anyone has access to this golf course, or knows a spot where it can be seen from outside, the goose might be still there.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Montauk to Shinnecock Field Trip Report (Suffolk Co.)
We spent the day birding on the east end, starting our day at Montauk Pt. The point had numerous Common Eider and scoters but very few other species. We missed Razorbill entirely and had only one Red-throated Loon. Hoping it would get better we worked our way back west stopping briefly at Ditch Plains, where the only bird of interest was a single Purple Sandpiper. As we headed down West Lake Drive an American Bittern flew overhead from the Lake Montauk marshes. This species is rare in winter on the Montauk peninsula - we haven’t seen one in the Montauk area for many years.

At Lake Montauk (west) jetty we found four Iceland Gulls, one adult and three immatures. WE took a short ride to Montauk Downs State Park in hopes of seeing if the Pink-footed Goose found on the Montauk CBC was still present. We quickly located the bird among numerous Canada Geese and three Snow Geese. A walk to Hook Pond was taken without really expecting to see anything given the frozen conditions. Much to our surprise we found six Tundra Swans on a small area of open water with Canada Geese, Mute Swans and various ducks. On the way west we received a timely e-mail from Derek Rogers concerning two Ross’s Geese in a farm field on Long Lane just east of Stephen Hands Path. A stop by the farm field quickly yielded the Ross’s among an estimated three thousand Canada Geese. The trip concluded on a down note with nothing of interest on the frozen tundra of Dune Road.

Good Birding,

Ken & Sue Feustel

Subject: [nysbirds-l] eBird.org: Recent Additions to County Checklists
When working on the NYS eBird Hotspots wiki I'll compare the previous bar
chart list of species with the current one picking up any additions or
deletions. By going to each county's 'Overview' page you can determine the
date the species was added by county. Some are from newly submitted
checklists from many months / years ago.

It isn't possible to spot these additions from old checklists. On the
'Overview' page you can sort on 'First Seen' but if the species wasn't
added recently it won't appear at the top of the list.

For each county on the NYS eBird Hotspots site click the 'Overview' link on
the 'Explore a Location' line:
http://ebirding-nys.wikispaces.com/Birding+in+New+York

Since last update: 7 days

Yellow highlights a species added for the first time over the past few
months.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Brooklyn Bird Alert
*Brooklyn Bird Alert* (*@BirdBrklyn* on Twitter) has been operating for
over a month now, relaying real-time reports of birding news, rarities,
other good birds, and birding conditions. It works the same way as my
Manhattan and Bronx alerts.

It provides a reliable single source for the above info, solves the
"everyone having to follow everyone" problem, and eliminates the need for
"birding only" Twitter accounts. Among other things, it makes sharing
location maps, videos, and photos easy: no need to link to a photo site --
just attach. No species restrictions. It's the quickest and easiest way to
send an alert.
Reports are always publicly-viewable and searchable online:

https://twitter.com/@birdbrklyn

Anyone can follow this account on Twitter and receive the alerts on the
Twitter app or delivered as simple (SMS) text messages -- you do not need a
smartphone, though you will enjoy the richest multimedia experience if you
have one.

It's easy to set up notifications so that when an alert arrives your phone
or device lets you know.

Users who would like to issue alerts should direct message @BirdBrklyn and
ask it to follow them (if it is not doing so already). Then just tweet the
alert with the hashtag *#birdbk*. Proprietary software will immediately
take your alert and retweet it to all with credit to you. Alerts also can
be sent as text messages if you prefer. See the user guide below for
details.

You can use it with any Twitter account; if you don't already have one, you
need to (just once) set one up, which you can do in five minutes online.

Step-by-step instructions for getting started are here:

https://birdbrklyn.wordpress.com/user-guide/

See here for a more detailed explanation of why this system is a good idea:

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Jones Inlet: 4 Kings, 7 Harlequins, Red-necked Grebe
I was toying with using for the subject line something like "Duckage
Delight". It sure was delightful in that regard, as was the weather. Being
not a good enough birder to get out there in the cold and wind, today was
finally the one for me to go to Jones Inlet and try for much needed King
Eider pictures.



The first stop, though, was Point Lookout. Coming out from the parking lot
at what is now the middle jetty (of 5), there was a large raft of ducks.
It's the ocean, so eiders, right? No. Scoters? No. They were Scaup. It's
open salt water, then, so they're Greater Scaup, right? No. They were nearly
all Lesser Scaup. From the inlet to the fourth jetty, something in the
neighborhood of 1500. Also, a number of Bufflehead and even a Common
Goldeneye rounded out the strange group of ocean birds. Of course, this is
due to the extended cold spell freezing them out of where they were. But
still a strange sight. Other ducks at Point Lookout were Common Eider, Surf
Scoter, Long-tailed Duck, and Red-breasted Merganser. And then there's that
one that you go to Point Lookout for - Harlequin Duck. There are 7 of them
continuing, today ranging from the inlet jetty to the second jetty. Also, 2
Bonaparte's Gulls were between the third and fourth jetties. For the younger
birders, Jones Inlet used to host hundreds in the winter. Now - something
that needs to reported?



At Jones Beach, the first stop was the boat basin to look for photo ops on
the calm water. Nothing doing there, as ice kept things out of range. I was
told of the near adult male King Eider being seen yesterday along the
channel heading to the fisherman's parking lot. Not there today, though.
Nothing but a few mergansers close in. But looking out toward the Loop
Parkway bridge, there was a huge raft of ducks. More scaup, maybe up to
4000. These were too far out for me to positively identify, but everything
that I saw today suggests mainly Lesser.



So at this point, the long walk to the West End jetty was a necessity. And
it was well worth it. I went out to the end of the jetty and sat down to be
as inconspicuous as possible. And then the ducks started coming in. it
didn't take long until the young male King Eider was in sight. Then the near
adult. Then two females. 4 King Eiders among the dozens of Common Eiders.
Also present were a smattering of Surf, Black, and White-winged Scoters. And
of course, more of that prototypical sea duck - Lesser Scaup. And while I
didn't realize it at the time, my pictures revealed a few Greater Scaup
here, as well. Throw in a couple of Black Ducks that dropped in, Long-tails
flying by, and some Buffleheads keeping to themselves on the east side of
the jetty, quite an assemblage of duckage.



Another highlight was a Red-necked Grebe that swam in toward the jetty from
the east, providing a few nice pictures. I think that at this point, my
camera said to me "this is fun". And should I mention the cooperative Purple
Sandpipers?



For now, I've posted just one picture of the older male King Eider. It can
be seen at http://stevewalternature.com/

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Swan river - great (frozen) South Bay
On my morning run I went down to pine neck dock at the mouth of swan river in East Patchogue. The bay is still frozen over and the mouth of the river had one small pocket of open water remaining. A number of mute swans were loafing on the ice and a few dozen ducks were swimming in the opening (I believe they were scaup). One duck stood out which I soon realized was a golden eye.
If you’re in the area may be worth a visit to take some nice photos as the opening is close to the dock (which is free of ice and snow).

Interestingly there is quite a bit of open water on swan river south of Swezey Avenue bridge

Moments after pressing send, the Grebe took off, heading west close to shore. It seemed to touch down somewhere to the west of the Ponqougue beach bathhouse, so it is likely still in the area.

You can park in the main Tiffany Creek Preserve lot and follow the trail to the field. Takes about 7 minutes each way to walk. There's a road that creeps right along the solitaire habitat, but it's marked as a private drive. 
Here's a very rudimentary map that I marked up with my fat fingers. Also, Google Maps isn't very helpful for orienting to the parking lot (I drove by it three times). Google Earth is better!
Happy birding,Purbita

I've yet to see a post containing any specifics about accessing this field, so I'll ask: Can it be walked, or does one have to stay near the road and scope the shrubbery in the middle and the peripheral trees? Not that I have time to chase this bird any time soon.

DO NOT park on Sandy Hill Road, if you get caught, you will be ticketed.

The Nature Conservancy has a preserve on Sandy Hill Road, close to the
intersection with Berry Hill Road. Look for a sign on the left as you come
in off of Berry Hill. Follow the long driveway down to the parking lot, and
then walk back out to Sandy Hill Road.

Head north on Sandy Hill Road (away from Berry Hill). The first driveway
you come to as you walk along Sandy Hill on the eastern side of Sandy Hill,
is marked as private property, The field on the northern side of the
driveway is where the solitaire has been seen, and is part of the Tiffany
Creek preserve, so you are allowed to be in that field. I don't think you
could see the bird from the road, unless it is foraging in the front of the
field, but that does not seem to be where its been seen.

Good luck to anyone who goes!

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Greater White-fronted Goose in Queens
Went to the pond by Douglaston Pkwy and LIE at 1:30 this afternoon to see
the Greater White-fronted Goose but to no avail. Only a few Canada Geese
were there at the time. Did get some good looks at Hooded Merganser,
Lesser Scaup, Bufflehead, Ruddy Duck, Redhead Duck and Coot.


May the birds be with you

Subject: [nysbirds-l] East End (East Hampton-Bridgehampton): northern pintail
The fields between East Hampton and Bridgehampton (off Montauk Hwy and the
back roads parallel to the highway) contained thousands of geese today.
Several fields contained hundreds and the field to the east of Beach Lane
had close to a thousand). Strangely, there didn't seem to be any snow geese
or other rare species. The Beach Lane field also held a few mallards, black
ducks and 2 northern pintail. There was 1 bonaparte gull (ocean side) and 1
ring-necked pheasant (dune between parking lot and pond).

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Pelham Bay Park, Bronx, Orchard Beach and vicinity
After 10 days of birding withdrawal because of the cold, I ventured out to Orchard Beach and vicinity on this balmy day.

The parking lot was closed, as NYC Sanitation is sending truckloads of snow into the parking lot. They are building a mountain.

Police are tolerating parking in the oval leading up to the promenade. A few cars were already there in the NE corner when I arrived. The leak that is feeding fresh water into the grassy area is not frozen in a small area, attracting gulls, starlings and most likely, other species. I’m guessing that something good will appear if one waits long enough.

The Orchard Beach lagoon is frozen as is the water between Hunter and Twin Islands. Turtle Cove is also frozen.

The promenade is clear for walking and the water is not frozen at the beach. I scoped from the rocks on the North end of the beach. I also walked to Twin Island. The entrance to Hunter Island from the beach promenade is snow bound, as is the trail. I started out but turned back, it was difficult footing.

There were very few passerines but the place is pretty with the snow.

Greater Scaup- probably 1000, distributed around the beach Twin Island
Red-breasted Merganser
American Black Duck
Common Goldeneye (They were in fairly close)
Horned Grebe
Red-necked Grebe
Bufflehead
Northern Harrier
Red-tailed hawk
Canada Goose
Herring and Ring -billed Gulls

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Franklin Mt. season wrapup
The 2017 season came to an end at the Franklin Mt. Hawkwatch
today---somewhat later than the traditional New Year's Day finale, due
to the Himalaya-like conditions on the mountain for the past couple of
weeks.Today was a balmy 10 C. with clear skies and a light SW wind.No
birds were recorded.

This was the 29^th consecutive year of counting at the site and was
notable for the dearth of Red-tailed Hawks.Only 739 were tallied, the
lowest total since the 1989 inaugural season which had only 54 hours of
coverage.Red-tails were 59% below the 17 year average of 1809, since
full time counting began at the site.There is some evidence that these
buteos are wintering further north, and there has been a general decline
in counts in recent years, but that hardly explains the precipitous drop
this season.

A relatively long-lived species, Red-tailed Hawk numbers do not change
dramatically from year to year.Most other eastern fall hawk watch sites
also experienced low numbers.Hawk Mountain in Pennsylvania had its
lowest count ever of red-tails in 82 years of observations!

On the up side, Franklin Mt. had its second consecutive 200+ Golden
Eagle year, with 214 following last year's 231.This count put Franklin
Mt. at the head of the class among eastern hawk watches for goldens this
season, only the second time the site has earned that distinction.

The Golden Eagle flight got off to a slow start this year, disappointing
counters and visitors alike.Only 14 birds were counted in October, and
none for nearly the first week of November.A good flight of 21 did come
on Nov. 10, but the rest of the first half of the month only brought a
trickle of the big raptors.

However, 18 Golden Eagles on Nov. 17 started a stretch where
double-digit counts came on 5 of 6 dates, and the second half of
November had 9 double-digit dates, with a high of 31 on Nov. 27.The
month ended with 186 goldens, the highest single month count in the
history of the hawkwatch, topping 2005's 167.

Although only a handful were counted, the other notable species at
Franklin Mt. this season was Black Vulture.In the previous 28 years,
only two BVs had been spotted.This year six were counted, perhaps the
start of a long-overdue trend.It has always been a mystery why more of
these easily IDed birds did not reach us, as they are present to the
north, south and east in increasing numbers.There were also other Black
Vulture reports from the Oneonta area this fall and several
non-migrating birds reported at the hawk watch, so it appear that this
species' range expansion is finally reaching the area.

Overall, the season total of 3860 raptors was 24% below the 17 year
average, due in large part to the low red-tail count.However eleven
species were below average with only Black Vulture, Turkey Vulture, Bald
Eagle, Golden Eagle and Merlin showing increases.

As usual, a dedicated group of volunteer counters put in long hours at
the hawk watch this season.Thanks go to Andy Cooper, Larry Dake, Kyle
Dudgeon, Pete Fauth, Fred Fries, Becky Gretton, Steve Hall, Marilyn
Leahy, Andrea Lodovice, Randy Lynch, Andy Mason, Pam Peters and Tom Salo
for their commitment to the Franklin Mt. Hawkwatch.

From: GQ <glennq...>
Subject: [nysbirds-l] Bald Eagle, Hempstead Harbor & Sands Point (Nassau county)
This morning, on my way in to the Sands Point Preserve, I stopped at Bar Beach (Port Washington, Nassau County). All of Hempstead Harbor was completely frozen. A Bald Eagle was sitting on the ice in the middle of the harbor, devouring what appeared to be a duck or gull.
Right about here: 40.822538, -73.650787

The Sands Point Preserve (Nassau) was very cold (10 degrees) and quiet. Snowfall was quite deep in some spots. Long Island Sound was frozen almost half way to Westchester County. Another Bald Eagle was far out over the sound, heading west. A Fox Sparrow and 3 Cedar Waxwing were around Hempstead House (western-most castle in the preserve). Also, 3 Horned Grebes on the sound.

Manhasset Bay in Port Washington was also completely frozen.

Cheers,

Glenn

Subject: [nysbirds-l] White-winged Gulls at Hawkins Point, St. Lawrence County
Conditions were ideal this afternoon for viewing white-winged gulls at Hawkins Point in Robert Moses State Park, Massena NY. A substantial ice shelf has developed between the parking area for the Hawkins Point Visitor's Center and the Moses-Saunders Dam, on which late this afternoon I counted 29 Glaucous Gulls and 4 Iceland Gulls. The St. Lawrence River is mostly iced over now. Often when this happens the gulls move out of the area, so there is no guarantee these birds are going to stick around for any length of time, but hopefully the moderating temperatures on tap for this week will encourage them to stay awhile.

Subject: Re: [nysbirds-l] Re] Greater White-fronted Goose - Alley Pond Park, Queens, No
For what it’s worth, I checked out the Douglaston Park Golf Course since it was the closest grassy area on the map and I found tons of geese foraging there. I failed to relocate the White-front despite some intensive searching, though it’s probably still a good spot to check when the birds leave the pond. Always good to take note of which direction the flocks fly in, you might get lucky catching them at a feeding site.

Cheers!

Subject: [nysbirds-l] purple sandpiper. Accabonac Harbor, East Hampton
I figured it was cold and miserable enough that I would be rewarded for
putting in some birding time. There was 1 purple sandpiper on the
Gardiner's Bay side of Gerard Drive, along with a dozen dunlin, 1
black-bellied plover, and several sanderling. The bay has lots of
long-tailed ducks, and there were about 10 surf scoter close to shore.
Several red-tails and 1 harrier.

I couldn't find any unusual geese among the hundreds in the field east of
Beach Lane in Wainscot, but there is a flock of some 20 horned lark
present.

The first year male King Eider continues with the flock of sea ducks at the West End jetty. No sign of the older male, but there was still lots of movement and if it’s still in the area it may reappear later. I would’ve sent this message out half an hour ago but my phone froze and shut down. Stay warm out there!

Subject: [nysbirds-l] dune road
This afternoon I drove the length of Dune road and spent a little time at
the inlet. It was dead low tide at the inlet and there were a lot of ducks
feeding and getting out of the wind on the western side. Most appeared to
be red-breasted mergansers, but there were also surf scoters, black scoters
and the single numbers of various other winter waterfowl. No eiders
observed (though a few seals poppped up).

Dune Road yielded one extremely well hidden Snowy Owl as well as a number
of northern harriers include a grey ghost.

From: Andrew Baksh <birdingdude...>
Subject: [nysbirds-l] Queens and Kings Co. report on a brisk day
I checked several known fresh water spots in South East Queens this morning finding all them either frozen over or almost frozen.

Just for anyone interested in the spots, here is a summary: Springfield Park - Frozen Over
Idlewild Preserve - Frozen Over
Brookville Park - the pond is almost frozen over with a small sliver of open water on the north end where the water begins to stream north. Mostly Canada Geese and Mallards were tucked in that area. This spot is known for holding Greater Yellowlegs; none there today.

At Baisley Pond - two small areas of open water the most productive is all the way at the north end. The numbers of Redheads continue to hold steady and I counted 97 today a few more than my January 2nd count of 94. Other waterfowl numbers were down most notably among the Ring-necked Ducks. Down to 27 today from 43 noted on January 2nd.

I saw Bob Anderson who informed me that the Ross's Goose was reported earlier. It was not on the pond during the time I was there and neither was it on the field (south of the pond across Rockaway Blvd) where it was later refound by Tim Healy. I have been trying to nail down where the Geese relocate to from the pond and it appears they are using several sites. If I am able to better pin down their movements, I will share the details.

Continuing to Brooklyn, I covered Bush Army Terminal, Greavesend Bay and Caesar's Bay.

Nothing of note at Bush Army Terminal.

At Greavesend Bay, there were Lesser and Greater Scaup giving close looks. In that area a couple of Purple Sandpipers were gleaning food from rocks that were not iced over. The Gulls present were the expected species.

Ceasar's Bay did not hold much with small numbers of Ring-billed Gulls.

A Turkey Vulture was a surprise sighting near the Fort Hamilton Exit.

Stay warm and safe.

Cheers,

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Linnaean Society of NY Program, Tuesday, January 9th, American Museum of Natural History, NYC
On Tuesday, January 9th, the Linnaean Society of New York’s 2018 Speaker Program will feature two new presentations.

6:00 pm – Understanding and Conserving Hawaii’s Avifauna – Jacob Drucker

The Hawaiian Islands are the most remote archipelago in the world. This has shaped their natural history in innumerable ways, and led to some of the most dramatically unique bird communities in the world. Isolation has also been the island's downfall, and Hawaii is now considered by many the “extinction capital of the world.” Jacob Drucker, who has worked as a field ornithologist on the Kauai Forest Bird Recovery Project, will provide a bird-centered overview of Hawaii's natural history, the flagship conservation efforts there that are the final hope for many species on the brink, and the American Birding Association's decision to add the archipelago to its list.


7:30 pm – A Birder’s Perspective on Global Warming with Notes on the Conservation of Climate – Alan Messer

What is additional arctic warming, and how does it affect the jet stream? How does the Cooper Island Alaska Black Guillemot colony inform that question? What is the status of the Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets? With the aid of his “great big climate poster”, artist and illustrator Alan Messer will draw on his notes from his time as the Society’s Recording Secretary and his work locally in environmental education, to present a refresher guide on climate mechanics, science communication, and strategies for conservation on a rapidly changing planet.


Both presentations are free and will be held in the Linder Theater on the first floor of the American Museum of Natural History in New York City.

All welcome!

Complete details of these exciting presentations and the rest of the 2018 program can be found here:

The Ross’s Goose was not present on the pond for the past hour or so, but Miriam and I just found it on the large ball field south of the pond across Rockaway Boulevard, which is apparently still part of the park according to maps. We got a nice vantage point from 150th Street. While I was typing up this email, the flock took off and headed north, presumably back to the pond. Check both locations before giving up!

BEGIN TAPE

Greetings. This is the New York Rare Bird Alert for Friday, January 5th
2018 at 8pm. The highlights of today's tape are TOWNSEND'S SOLITAIRE,
WESTERN TANAGER, WHITE-WINGED DOVE, EARED GREBE, ROSS'S GOOSE, GREATER
WHITE-FRONTED GOOSE, BARROW'S GOLDENEYE, KING EIDER, HARLEQUIN DUCK,
BLACK-HEADED GULL, GLAUCOUS GULL, DOVEKIE, YELLOW-THROATED WARBLER,
YELLOW-BREASTED CHAT, RED CROSSBILL and more.

Thursday's snow storm, plus recent frigid temperatures, certainly have had
a significant effect on regional bird life including 2 rarities struggling
to subsist in our area. The WESTERN TANAGER at Crocheron Park in Queens was
last seen Wednesday taking advantage of suet placed out for it but it has
not been noted in that area since. The TOWNSEND'S SOLITAIRE east of Oyster
Bay was also still present Wednesday but its chances of survival are
presumably better than the Tanager's as it has been feeding on junipers in
more suitable habitat. This location is on the east side of Sandy Hill Road
just north of the entrance to the Tiffany Creek Preserve on the west side
of the road. Parking is available at the preserve then continue up Sandy
Hill Road past a private road on the right to the field just beyond. When
being seen the SOLITAIRE is usually around a small stand of junipers
towards the northeastern corner of the field, one juniper still bearing
lots of berries. There have been long periods during which the bird is not
visible.

The Southern Nassau Christmas Count last Saturday recorded 132 species
including a very unusual Winter rarity. A WHITE-WINGED DOVE sticking around
a private feeder in Malverne at least long enough to be photographed. Other
count highlights included 2 CACKLING GEESE, 7 HARLEQUIN DUCKS, 2 KING
EIDERS off the Jones Beach West End jetty, one a nice adult like male, 5
GREAT EGRETS, a YELLOW-CROWNED NIGHT-HERON, an EARED GREBE off Nickerson
Beach, RED-NECKED GREBE, 2 BALD EAGLES, ROUGH-LEGGED HAWK, CLAPPER RAIL, 2
LESSER YELLOWLEGS, ICELAND GULL, SHORT-EARED, NORTHERN SAW-WHET and 3 SNOWY
OWLS, 2 COMMON RAVENS, 5 LAPLAND LONGSPURS at Jones Beach West End, a
NORTHERN WATERTHRUSH at the same location as on last year's count, 2
ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLERS, 36 Ipswich Sparrows [SAVANNAH SPARROW] and 31
RUSTY BLACKBIRDS.

Waterfowl moving around more now with most fresh water freezing up have
featured a ROSS'S GOOSE at Baisley Pond in Queens Monday and Tuesday. The
Brooklyn GREATER WHITE-FRONTED GOOSE was spotted on the Marine Park Golf
Course last Saturday with scattered CACKLING GEESE. Two young male KING
EIDERS were still in Setauket Harbor Tuesday as viewed from Shore Road and
a female BARROW'S GOLDENEYE was spotted Monday in Fire Island Inlet from
the western end of Oak Beach Road. Up to 7 HARLEQUIN DUCKS remain around
Jones Inlet either near the Jones Beach West End jetty or the jetties off
the Point Lookout side. Two recent EURASIAN WIGEONS include one in
Brooklyn's Salt Marsh Nature Center and one on Mill Pond in Sayville. A
flock of 7 DOVEKIES were spotted moving past Montauk Point Tuesday morning
and an adult BLACK-HEADED GULL was still at Five Islands Park off Route 1
in New Rochelle Westchester County Wednesday. Single GLAUCOUS GULLS were
noted at Swan Lake in Patchogue Wednesday and at Goldsmith Inlet in Peconic
on the north fork Thursday. An ICELAND GULL was also at Swan Lake Wednesday
this following one in Brooklyn last weekend including at the Brooklyn Army
Terminal Pier 4. Two RED-NECKED GREBES were still off Floyd Bennett Field
Monday, another at Jones Beach West End Wednesday and 2 LONG-BILLED
DOWITCHERS remained along Santapogue Creek in West Babylon at least to
Wednesday.

ROUGH-LEGGED HAWK numbers have been picking up recently especially
coastally.

On Staten Island among the few lingering warblers have been the
YELLOW-THROATED WARBLER at Midland Beach and a BLACK-AND-WHITE WARBLER and
a YELLOW-BREASTED CHAT was noted along Dune Road in West Hampton early in
the week.

A LAPLAND LONGSPUR was at Robert Moses State Park field 5 Wednesday and a
RED CROSSBILL was reported flying over a Smithtown home last Saturday
reminding us to be on the lookout for Winter finches.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] eBird.org: Recent Additions to County Checklists
When working on the NYS eBird Hotspots wiki I'll compare the previous bar
chart list of species with the current one picking up any additions or
deletions. By going to each county's 'Overview' page you can determine the
date the species was added by county. Some are from newly submitted
checklists from many months / years ago.

It isn't possible to spot these additions from old checklists. On the
'Overview' page you can sort on 'First Seen' but if the species wasn't
added recently it won't appear at the top of the list.

For each county on the NYS eBird Hotspots site click the 'Overview' link on
the 'Explore a Location' line:
http://ebirding-nys.wikispaces.com/Birding+in+New+York

Since last update: 7 days

Yellow highlights a species added for the first time over the past few
months. Removed species may've been recently reviewed or the list(s) they
are associated with are hidden from view.

Subject: Re: [nysbirds-l] Ithaca rarities
New York is a large and geographically diverse state and I suspect one of
the problems undermining the usefulness of this STATEWIDE list as well as
contributing to the impression that it is principally focused on downstate,
is the careless use of location information.

Too often posts simply assume locations will be familiar to people living
hundreds of miles away and make no effort to accommodate the wider
readership. I suspect cross-posting to more localized lists (where this is
less of a problem) is a contributing factor but in truth vague subject
lines and location information has been a problem for years. Why should a
birder in northern NY or far western NY be expected to know the name of
some pond or beach on Long Island? Taking a few extra clicks to include the
county or general region in the subject line makes a HUGE difference to the
usefulness of the list as a news sharing tool. 'Me too' posts also
contribute to the chatter but can be useful especially with noteworthy
rarities.

It would be nice to seem more information sharing from every corner of NYS
to know what's happening in the broader sense. I suspect most folks don't
have the bandwidth to subscribe to all the regional lists.

Subject: Re: [nysbirds-l] Ithaca rarities
Kevin, Funny, you should say that.

As a downstater I was literally having a similar conversation with another downstater last month when we had a fantastic day at the Franklin Mt. Hawk Watch near Oneonta. We went to the hawk watch for Golden Eagles that weekend because of an upstater's post.

We discussed with the local birders there that we feel the upstaters should post more often to the listerv and encouraged them to do so.

In my opinion, aside from the occasional icky post, I think us downstaters do an excellent job of sharing information that has afforded us many opportunities to see some darn good birds.

I appreciate your post and always love to hear what's going on upstate.

Best current bird in Ithaca is a male TUFTED DUCK hanging in the huge (>10,000, probably near 20,000) flock of ducks (mostly Redheads) in the very SW corner of Cayuga Lake. It is difficult to look at this flock, but views can be had from Rt 89 just outside the Ithaca city limits. (Look for the first and only parking area on the west side of the road.) Even if you don't find the Tufted Duck, this duck flock is an amazing sight.


Also in the area is a family group of Black Vultures (2 adults, 2 juveniles) that are consistently, but not constantly, hanging out at the state pheasant-raising facility on Game Farm Road, just east of Ithaca and SW of Varna.


We had a good Christmas Bird Count on the 1st, with a record-setting 102 species. Pretty impressive, I have to say for an inland count! Tufted Duck, Black Vulture, and Eurasian Goldfinch were all new species for the count. We also had record numbers of multiple duck species. Still no sign of the northern finches yet, despite the abundance of cones on all the conifers.


Good birds for inland New York included Surf Scoter, White-winged Scoter, Long-tailed Duck, Northern Pintail, Green-winged Teal, American Wigeon, Gadwall, Red-throated Loon, Peregrine Falcon, Savannah Sparrow.


Good birding and happy new year!

Thanks Kevin for sending this report.  I'd love to see those incredible numbers of Redheads and the Tufted Duck, but it's a little far for me right now.  It's always nice to hear about sightings in the rest of NYS other than down here.  I wish more people would do this on this listserv.  I'm glad a few still do.

With thanks to Charlie Roberto for heads up on this. Charlie also spotted
American Wigeon and Lesser Scaup earlier today.

(Can access Aqueduct Road off Route 134 just E of Taconic Parkway in Town

Subject: [nysbirds-l] ULSTER/DUTCHESS (NYUD) CBC 2017 overview











Greetings All,
The seventh annualUlster/Dutchess (NYUD) Christmas Bird Count was conducted on Wednesday,December 27th, 2017. We’vebeen fortunate, for continuity sake, to hold this count within a three daywindow from 12/26-12/28. 41 birders in 14 field parties along with two feederwatchers observed a new high total of 95species (+2 cw species) for the NYUD CBC. The 20,792 individual birds countedwere nearly 3000 more than our average for the previous six counts andrepresented our second highest total (23,039 in 2011). Of the species that haveappeared three or more years on this count seventeen species were recorded at anew high number and six species at a new low total. To illustrate how complete a team effort thisyear’s count was an outstanding seven species were added to our composite NYUDlist from seven different sectors! Thisraised our composite total after seven counts to 120 species. Exceptional finds included a soaring Golden Eagle inSector E, a vocalizing Long-eared Owl in Sector G, an unexpected Red-headedWoodpecker in Sector J, two cooperative Lapland Longspurs in Sector D, and afemale White-winged Scoter in Sector F. Two species, a House Wren in Sector B and an Iceland Gull in Sector Imoved from “CW” historical status to join us on count day.


Temperatures rangedfrom 2 degrees at 6:00 a.m. (having dropped from 8 degrees at the start of ournocturnal effort at 4:00 a.m.) to a balmy 26 degrees mid-day. Luckily diurnal birders basked in asun-filled day with calm winds. Standingbodies of water were iced over but the Hudson and it’s tributaries within the circleremained open and definitely helped field parties locate a very respectable 16species of waterfowl. Three inches of a powderysnow cover was rare for the NYUD and surely helped to consolidate sparrowsroadside and maybe even aid in our record number of Snow Buntings.


A big “thank you”as always to Steve Chorvas for inputting and arranging all the data for thiscount and to all those who cooked, baked, and cleaned up to lessen the load formy now very pregnant wife. Also aspecial thanks to Dave Hayes for providing a beautiful facelift to our sectormaps. Finally, to all those in the field(as listed below) congratulations and thank you on our most productive and successfulcount yet. Included with participantsare notable bird species from each sector.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Red & White-winged Crossbills & more, plus mammals!
Happy New Year to everyone!



Numbers of Red and White-winged Crossbills continued to increase in December
with lots of singing now. From Red Crossbill recordings I've sent Matt
Young, he has documented Type 1, 3, and 10 so far. Pine Siskins are
abundant (Sadly, I've observed several road-killed already). Purple Finches
and Amer. Goldfinches are still here in the central Adirondacks - unusual in
winter. (150 Amer. Goldfinches are visiting our feeders each day - lots of
seed consumed! There are small numbers of Pine Siskins visiting our
feeders.)



Also unusual this winter: There are still small flocks of American Robins in
Long Lake - in the village and at the inlet of Little Tupper Lake along
Sabattis Circle Road. A flock of ~50 Cedar Waxwings has been feeding on
fruit trees in Long Lake since 12/22/17 (not one Bohemian among them!).
Dark-eyed Juncos are still feeding under our feeders and on the cracked corn
we put out (there is a good snow cover with no open ground) - and they can
still be found along Sabattis Circle Road. Blue Jays are here in good
numbers for the 3rd winter in a row (un-caching Gray Jay food). Also, Amer.
Crows are here in higher numbers than usual for winter.



I haven't observed the tailless Gray Jay at Sabattis Bog in a couple weeks
(since 12/15). (But it sometimes disappears for a while and then reappears,
so I hope to see it again.)



With a bumper food crop on just about every tree species in the Adirondacks,
this will be a fascinating winter to observe where birds are feeding. Here
is what I have noted so far:



White Pine: Red Crossbill and Pine Siskin

Red Spruce: Red and White-winged Crossbill

Black Spruce: White-winged Crossbill

Tamarack: Red and White-winged Crossbill (also Black-capped Chickadee and
Red-breasted Nuthatch)

Hemlock: Pine Siskin

Balsam Fir: Pine Siskin

Birch: Pine Siskin and Amer. Goldfinch

White Cedar: Pine Siskin and Amer. Goldfinch



Some sightings:



1/1/18 Long Lake (Hamilton Co.)

Ruffed Grouse - 4 (3 locations along Sabattis Circle Road - all eating buds
in deciduous trees)

Gray Jay - 8 (2 along Route 30, 2 at the Round Lake Trailhead, and 4 at
Sabattis Bog)

Boreal Chickadee - at least 2 along Route 30 (at a location where I stopped
to listen for crossbills)

American Robin - in the village of Long Lake and at the inlet of Little
Tupper Lake along Sabattis Circle Road

Cedar Waxwing - small flock in a fruit tree near the Post Office

Purple Finch - many; lots of gritting in the roads

Red Crossbill - calling near the inlet of Little Tupper Lake along Sabattis
Circle Road (this is where they grit - they have been singing near the
outlet (which is also the inlet of Round Lake))

White-winged Crossbill - calling at the Round Lake Trailhead and singing all
around Sabattis Bog

Pine Siskin - everywhere! Gritting in the roads in large flocks.

Amer. Goldfinch - many

Dark-eyed Junco - many



12/31/17 Long Lake - White-winged Crossbills were singing near a marsh along
Route 30 where I have been feeding Gray Jays for several years.



12/30/17 Saranac Lake Christmas Bird Count (owling, Route 55, Oregon Plains
& Bigelow Roads, and Bloomingdale Bog to the Gray Jay feeder)

Mary Beth Warburton and I found 19 species in our boreal section of the
Saranac Lake CBC. The temperature ranged from 18 below to 1 above! It was
brutal to be hiking! (Foot and hand warmers saved us.) Here are some of
the species found:

Pileated Woodpecker - 1

Black-backed Woodpecker - 1 female along Route 55

Gray Jay - 3 on Route 55

Boreal Chickadee - 3 along Bigelow Road

Brown Creeper - 4

Golden-crowned Kinglet - 9

Dark-eyed Junco - 7

Purple Finch - 23

Red Crossbill - 1 along Route 55

White-winged Crossbill - 27 along Route 55 (one flock of 17 all eating
Tamarack cone seeds) Lots of singing!

Pine Siskin - 265!



12/26/17 Long Lake - 2 Amer. Tree Sparrows showed up - 1 at Sabattis Bog
and 1 at our home (both stayed for just a few days)



12/25/17 Long Lake - 6 Snow Buntings near the inlet of Little Tupper Lake
and one eating cracked corn at our home. I also found 6 Red Crossbills
along Rice Road in Long Lake (when they irrupt, they always seem to nest
along this short road).



12/24/17 Long Lake - a Northern Saw-whet Owl called outside our home at 3
a.m.!!!



12/23/17 Long Lake - 4 Mallards on the outlet of Little Tupper Lake was an
unusual sighting in winter! (just a very small section of open water)



On 12/16/17 and 12/18/17, a Common Raven barked like a dog along Sabattis
Circle Road. I've heard the dog whine vocalization, but I've never heard
actual "barking" - it was wild! The raven is part of an adorable pair.
They fly over my car when they spot it and follow me to the Round Lake
Trailhead where they know I put food out (for Gray Jays)! They wait for me
to drive away before flying down to the food. This is pure speculation
(which is never a good thing to do!), but I was lingering - listening for
the White-winged Crossbills on 12/16/17 and I believe the dog bark
vocalization was meant to scare me away because they wanted the food (or
maybe there was some other reason for the raven to imitate a dog!). They
saw me 2 days later near the Little Tupper Lake inlet and the raven barked
again! It seems as if Common Ravens have an endless variety of
vocalizations.



12/15/17 Minerva (Essex Co.) - a Red Crossbill was singing near the Lindsay
Marsh Trailhead



12/11/17 Long Lake - 2 adult Bald Eagles and 13 Common Ravens were feeding
together on a male deer carcass out on Long Lake - the ice had just formed
and it appeared that the deer didn't make it across the lake.



12/9/17 Long Lake/Newcomb/Minerva/North Hudson (Hamilton and Essex Counties)

Out with an ornithology class from St. Lawrence Univ. we found 19 species in
boreal habitat. Here are some of the birds found:

Black-backed Woodpecker - 2 (male in N. Hudson and female in Minerva)

Gray Jay - 8 (2 at the Round Lake Trailhead, 5 at Sabattis Bog, and 1 heard
near Sand Pond Marsh in N. Hudson)

Boreal Chickadee - many in North Hudson!

Red-breasted Nuthatch

Brown Creeper

Golden-crowned Kinglet

American Robin

Purple Finch

Red Crossbill - several heard calling at Sand Pond Marsh in N. Hudson

White-winged Crossbill - pair observed at the Round Lake Trailhead feeding
on Red Spruce cones

Pine Siskin

Amer. Goldfinch

Dark-eyed Junco



We also observed Bobcat tracks!



12/4/17 Long Lake: Mammals: Coyotes howled outside our home. 4 Muskrats
observed on Little Tupper Lake (2 at the inlet and 2 at the outlet). 3
River Otters running on the ice on Long Lake and fishing in open water.



12/3/17 Minerva and North Hudson

I fed a friendly Gray Jay in Minerva. Near the Sand Pond Marsh in N.
Hudson, I found a male Black-backed Woodpecker and a flock of over 15 Boreal
Chickadees near sunset - this is the largest flock I've ever found and I
suspect it was several groups that came together just before sunset
(earlier, I found 3 Boreal Chickadees in the same location). There was a
lot of chasing (the commotion attracted the Black-backed Woodpecker also!).
I also found a flock of over 20 Red Crossbills.



12/2/17 Piercefield (St. Lawrence Co.)

I drove to Horseshoe Lake and had a really memorable morning. I observed 3
River Otters interacting, running across the lake, vocalizing, popping up
through the ice - exciting! I also spent over an hour observing 2 female
Red Crossbills foraging and gritting in the road. Sadly, there was a dead
Muskrat in the middle of Route 30 on my drive.



12/1/17 Long Lake - a Barred Owl gave its rare scream call twice (you could
never sleep through this vocalization!) The scream lifted me out of bed
over the baby monitor we use to bring in outside sounds.



I've posted a number of photos on my Facebook page (including the River
Otters!).

Subject: [nysbirds-l] 18 Rough-legged Hawks
I ran my Roughleg route this morning. I started at the Shawangunk
Grasslands at 6:28AM and then hit eight stops in the Black Dirt Region.

The Shawangunk Grasslands were very quiet. In order of appearance, I
observed 3 SHORT-EARED OWLS (one of which dive-bombed a perched GHOW), 2
ROUGH-LEGGED HAWKS (two light morphs), and 2 NORTHERN HARRIERS. You never
get the full Short-eared show here in the morning. I think most of them
slip into roost, when it's still too dark to see well. Early to mid-winter
Rough-legged Hawk counts here usually aren't too impressive. The Harrier
count was abysmal!

At Black Dirt I tallied (a mere) 4 NORTHERN HARRIERS, 16 ROUGH-LEGGED HAWKS
(eleven light, five dark), and 2 AMERICAN KESTRELS. Unfortunately for
wintering raptors, the composition of the landscape here changes winter to
winter. This year a lot of sod was rolled, so there is lots and lots of
bare dirt. Since we're dealing with thousands and thousands of acres here,
there's always enough fallow land and drainage ditches to support some
birds but my money is on the coastal marshes this winter...

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Southern Nassau County CBC--Preliminary Results
The Southern Nassau County CBC was conducted yesterday, 30 Dec 2017, by 89 participants, for the 78th time since 1932.

Conditions were challenging, with cold temperatures (18-26 F) and snow on count day, and sustained sub-freezing temperatures prior to the count. On the plus side, there was little wind, and coverage was excellent.

A total of 132 species was recorded, including a White-winged Dove reported from a feeder in Malverne.

Highlights included the following:

Cackling Goosetwo individuals, Massapequa & Baldwin
King Eider2 Short
Eared GrebeAtlantic
Yellow-crowned Night-HeronBaldwin
Rough-legged HawkShort
Clapper RailAtlantic
Lesser Yellowlegstwo individuals, Hempstead & Short
Iceland GullShort
Short-eared OwlShort
Snowy Owlthree individuals, Atlantic, Short, Tobay
Northern Saw-whet OwlShort
Common Raven2 Hempstead
Lapland Longspur5 Short
Northern WaterthrushBaldwin
Orange-crowned Warblertwo individuals, Atlantic & Tobay
Palm WarblerAtlantic
Chipping SparrowBaldwin
White-crowned SparrowAtlantic

High Counts were relatively few and mostly involved species continuing strong, recent upward trends:

Great Horned Owl5
Yellow-bellied Sapsucker16
American Kestrel4
Monk Parakeet290
Fish Crow2488
Ipswich Sparrow36
Rusty Blackbird31
Boat-tailed Grackle243

Misses and Low Counts were relatively many. These included a predictable suite of freshwater and ice-intolerant species, but also several species exhibiting declining trends in recent years. Wood Duck, Redhead, Ring-necked Pheasant, American Bittern, American Oystercatcher, Lesser Black-backed Gull, Barn Owl, and American Pipit were missed. Low Counts (all ten-year minima) were recorded for:

Brant18607
Mute Swan54
American Wigeon30
Black Duck2213
Northern Shoveler126
Northern Pintail18
Ring-necked Duck29
Hooded Merganser714
Ruddy Duck160
Pied-billed Grebe12
Great Blue Heron58
Peregrine Falcon8
European Starling1827

The only count-week species that I am aware was missed yesterday was Redhead, but others among those listed above as missed are likely to be recorded during the count period.

Thanks to all for another excellent count, and for good company during the compilation at Ottos in Freeport.

Happy New Year!

Subject: [nysbirds-l] NYS eBird Hotspots: State, Counties & Locations Updated (Jan/'18)
Thanks to @Team_eBird for their dedication to keeping eBird.org running
smoothly and for the group of New York State hotspot moderators for their
time reviewing shared location suggestions.

The wiki page site was developed to access data on eBird.org and in places
it includes additional links to birding resources at the county and
location levels. If you have any suggestions for additional links please
send them to me off list.

All County pages currently have links for the *Illustrated Checklists* and
links to both Images and Audio from the Macaulay Library. If you find these
links helpful I can add them to the hotspot pages. If useful let me know
and I'll add these to the location level pages.

*Species totals* have been updated for all county pages. This includes the
total number of species with an equivalent color code highlighting the
county name based on colors used on eBird maps. The alphabetical list of
counties on the main page has been updated with total spp. #.

*Hotspot pages*: All location pages have been updated on the wiki. These
include 882 pages representing a total of 1,797 out of 6,017 hotspots
(29.9%). Updates involve # of species and color codings based on species #
along with updated 2017-2018 periods on the bar chart tables displaying the:

• Current Month: Jan./2018
• Prior Month: Dec./2017
• the current two month period Dec./2017-Jan./2018
• along with the prior year: 2017

For the following counties there are individual '*dynamic*' wiki pages for
the Top "10" locations at the top of the list of shared locations: Cayuga,
Erie, Monroe, Niagara, Orange, Oswego, Seneca, Tompkins, Kings (Brooklyn),
Queens, Richmond (Staten Island), Nassau and Suffolk Counties. *Westchester*
and *New York (Borough of Manhattan) Counties* have all shared locations
linked to wikipages.

Counties with '*static*' pages do not need to be maintained on a monthly
basis. These include pages for the Top "10" locations and includes Albany,
Bronx, Broome, Chautauqua, Clinton, Columbia, Delaware, Dutchess, Essex,
Genesee, Greene, Hamilton, Jefferson, Livingston, Madison, Oneida,
Onondaga, Ontario, Orleans, Rockland, St. Lawrence, Saratoga, Sullivan,
Ulster & Wayne with *Putnam County* currently having all shared locations
linked to wikipages.

An *alphabetical list* of all hotspots (6,017) can be found on a single
page. Links exist for any hotspot with a wikipage. Clicking the county name
to the right of any hotspot will bring up the county page showing all
county hotspots. A link to the alphabetical list page is at the bottom of
this message. There is a link to the page at the top of the New York State
page.

*Bar Charts (Species Lists)*: For all county and top 10 location pages
there's a table showing the months, seasons and several time frames for the
current year. Clicking any of these links will bring up a complete list of
species and other taxa with bar charts representing abundance. To see a
list of species for *all* periods click on the name above the months i.e.
'New York State (486 spp.)' or 'Madison County (270 spp.)'.

*Maps of sightings*: After bringing up a bar chart list you'll see a MAP
button to the right of each species. Clicking this will produce a map of
the latest sightings. Red icons show sightings within the past 30 days.
Click on the icons to see a list of who reported each species and click on
'Checklist' to view their submission. Click on 'Explore Rich Media' in the
right sidebar to view locations with photos, audio or video. These also
exist for any multi-location page combining the hotspots associated with
the location i.e. Cornell Biological Field Station in Madison County with
its 2 locations.

*Printable Checklists*: a link has been created to produce an eBird
checklist (PDF format) for all hotspots on the wiki site. Additional
details are in this email sent to the list <
https://www.mail-archive.com/<nysbirds-l...>/msg20153.html >.

*Tide Graphs* exist for New York County, Kings County (Brooklyn) and
Richmond County (Staten Island). There's a quick link to the tide graphs on
the "Go To >" line highlighted in blue for each location. If there are
multiple graphs on a page the left/right is generally north/south or
west/east. If you spot any issues please let me know off line.

Click '*Overview*' on any of the wiki pages to bring up a sortable list of
all species along with the latest checklists submitted and a list of the
Top eBirders. The default sort is for the latest additions to the State,
County or location.

Check out '*My Location Life List*', '*My County Life List*' and '*My State
Life List*' links on their respective pages.

For each location page click on '*Google Map Directions*' to bring up a
Google Map page. On Google Maps click 'Directions' then 'Transit' to plot a
public transportation route. By clicking 'More Options and Times' you can
refine your search. This also works with 'Driving' and 'Walking'.

Today at ~ 1530, after picking up clothes at the dry-cleaners in Riverhead,
my route home took me past the Roanoke Ave Elementary School, where
lo-and-behold, 4 Turkey Vultures were up warming themselves atop the
school's chimney ! Across the street at # 542 (1st house n/o the Firehouse)
there were 7 more roosting in the pine tree in its backyard. The
"motherload" however, was waiting for me at the intersection of Roanoke Ave
& Elton Street ! In the 3 spruce trees on the w/s of Roanoke, there were a
total of 21 vultures, with 1 being a Black.....yessssssssssssss! Life is
good !

Subject: [nysbirds-l] NYS eBird Hotspots: New/Renamed Locations (29-Dec-'17)
Thanks to @Team_eBird for their dedication keeping eBird.org running
smoothly and for the group of New York State hotspot moderators for working
on shared location suggestions.

** See notes below if you wish to merge any of your personal locations with
existing hotspots/

New and renamed shared locations (hotspots) have been updated for the 62
county wiki pages. You can find a summary of the changes below with
clickable links where pages exist for a dedicated hotspot.

http://ebirding-nys.wikispaces.com/NewHotspots
http://ebirding-nys.wikispaces.com/RenamedHotspots

The above links now appear on the home page (see below) on the '*Shared
Location Updates*' line eliminating the need to refer back to this message:

Home page:
http://ebirding-nys.wikispaces.com/Birding+in+New+York

The alphabetized page with all hotspots (6,017) has also been updated.

Alphabetical list of hotspots:
http://ebirding-nys.wikispaces.com/AlphaHotspots

If you wish to merge your personal location with an existing hotspot here
are the steps:

— Sign into eBird.org
— Go to "My eBird" & select "Manage My Locations" in the right panel
— At the bottom of the screen click "Show All" to see all locations on one
page
— You can sort the list by clicking on any of the headers: Location,
Country, State/Province, County, Type* or # of Checklists
— Select your personal location (it will show a letter "P" under Type*) by
clicking "Edit" on the right side of the line
— Select the "Merge" button and you'll see all nearby hotspots as red icons
— Keep the checkmark for "Delete after merging" selected
— Click the icon that best fits your location
— ... now you'll see the hotspot description above the 'Merge' button along
with the # of checklists you'll be merging
— Click on the 'Merge' button
— Answer Yes to the 'Yes or No' query

All checklists for that personal location will be combined with the hotspot
with this process.

Sent from my Verizon, Samsung Galaxy Tablet






Today, I was able to bird the Newburgh waterfront from 3:15 to 4:45. Gull numbers are rising and the quality is improving as well. Of the 1000 or so Gulls which continually moved about due to increasing Eagle activity, I was able to find 4 Iceland Gulls. Three were first cycle (one VERY dark) and one second cycle bird, as well as one adult Lesser Black backed Gull. It should continue heating up as it continues cooling down. Many birds could be seen hanging around the Beacon waterfront but were too far to Id.

Good Birding,
Curt McDermott

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Newburgh Gulls/ Hudson River


Today, I was able to bird the Newburgh waterfront from 3:15 to 4:45. Gull numbers are rising and the quality is improving as well. Of the 1000 or so Gulls which continually moved about due to increasing Eagle activity, I was able to find 4 Iceland Gulls. Three were first cycle (one VERY dark) and one second cycle bird, as well as one adult Lesser Black backed Gull. It should continue heating up as it continues cooling down. Many birds could be seen hanging around the Beacon waterfront but were too far to Id.

Good Birding,
Curt McDermott

BEGIN TAPE

Greetings. This is the New York Rare Bird Alert for Friday, December 29th
2017 at 8pm. The highlights of today's tape are MOUNTAIN BLUEBIRD, WESTERN
TANAGER, TOWNSEND'S SOLITAIRE, AMERICAN WHITE PELICAN, TUFTED DUCK,
BARROW'S GOLDENEYE, KING EIDER, HARLEQUIN DUCK, EARED GREBE, BLACK-HEADED
GULL, GLAUCOUS GULL and much more.

Of our recent trio of exciting western passerines two continue but one may
have moved on. The female plumaged MOUNTAIN BLUEBIRD present since December
17th on Tuesday was seen around field 2 at Robert Moses State Park and then
very shortly thereafter back at the Red Cedars along the bay side of
Democrat Point at the western tip of Fire Island but it has not been
reported from there since Tuesday. Please let us know of any later
sightings. The WESTERN TANAGER at Crocheron Park in Queens was still
present today near the pond at the south end of the park near the terminus
of 35th Avenue. The TOWNSEND'S SOLITAIRE, east of Oyster Bay, can be
difficult to find but does continue around the field and hedge row on the
east side of Sandy Hill Road just north of the entrance to Tiffany Creek
Preserve.

An AMERICAN WHITE PELICAN arriving at Playland Lake in Rye in Westchester
County on the 21st stayed around to provide the Bronx-Westchester Christmas
Count with a new record Saturday and was last seen on the lake late Tuesday
morning interestingly spotted moving by over Pelham Bay Park in the Bronx
about noontime. Fortunately headed south.

Nice ducks in the area, thanks in part to this freeze up, include an
eclipse male TUFTED DUCK spotted in a scaup flock on Santapogue Creek in
West Babylon near where up to 5 LONG-BILLED DOWITCHERS continue to be seen.
Freezing water could force the flock to move further down the creek towards
Phoenician Shores Park. This bird currently has a very short crest.

A female BARROW'S GOLDENEYE was spotted this morning off Oak Neck Beach in
Bayville probably moving east with some of the Common Goldeneyes. A male
BARROW'S GOLDENEYE previously present in the northern part of Jamaica Bay
could also be worth looking for.

At Jones Beach West End a winter male KING EIDER in nice plumage off the
jetty has been in a flock of Common Eider that also features an immature
male KING. Three HARLEQUIN DUCKS also continue near the jetty and if not
there could be at the jetties on the Point Lookout side of Jones Inlet. Two
young male KING EIDERS were also seen today along the east side of Setauket
Harbor as viewed from Shore Road. One of these was noted on the Smithtown
Count on Wednesday. An adult BLACK-HEADED GULL in Setauket Harbor was found
on Tuesday and another adult remains around Five Island Park in New
Rochelle a highlight of the Bronx-Westchester Count.

An EARED GREBE was still present last Sunday off the western end of Oak
Beach Road where it's usually west of the Fisherman's parking lot.

Speaking of Christmas Counts the Bronx-Westchester Count last Saturday
recorded 108 species including GREATER WHITE-FRONTED and CACKLING GEESE,
the AMERICAN WHITE PELICAN and BLACK-HEADED GULL, LAUGHING GULL, EASTERN
PHOEBE, a BLACK-AND-WHITE WARBLER along with ORANGE-CROWNED and PINE,
CHIPPING SPARROW and a count period a LAPLAND LONGSPUR.

The Smithtown Count Wednesday netted 109 species including 4 CACKLING
GEESE, KING EIDER, SPOTTED SANDPIPER, LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULL, RAZORBILL,
BARN and NORTHERN SAW-WHET OWLS, EASTERN PHOEBE, 2 ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLERS
and 89 RUSTY BLACKBIRDS as well as count period RED-NECKED GREBE,
SEMIPALMATED PLOVER and BLACK-HEADED GULL.

The Northern Westchester Count back on the 16th, among its 94 species,
featured 32 BALD EAGLES, WILSON'S SNIPE, 4 NORTHERN SAW-WHET OWLS and MARSH
WREN.

A GREATER WHITE-FRONTED GOOSE was seen today in the clover leafs at the
Belt Parkway and Flatbush Avenue intersection near Floyd Bennett Field. Two
RED-NECKED GREBES have been at Jamaica Bay off Floyd Bennett recently. A
ROUGH-LEGGED HAWK also reported there yesterday.

A GLAUCOUS GULL and 4 LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULLS were at the Bellport Bay
Yacht Club Monday.

To phone in reports on Long Island call Tony Lauro at (631) 734-4126 or
call Tom Burke at (914) 967-4922.

This service is sponsored by the Linnaean Society of New York and the
National Audubon Society. Thank you for calling.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Barrows Goldeneye - Bayville, Nassau Co
I just recently had a female Barrows Goldeneye in a flock of 60+ goldeneye off of Oak Neck Beach in Bayville. Parts of the flock took off to the east and I haven’t been able to relocated the Barrows in a brief search of the nearby coast, though it is likely still nearby.

Additionally, there is an hatch year goldeneye with a very stubby bill in the flock that might provide some interesting study.

Best,
Michael McBrien

Subject: [nysbirds-l] 2 King Eiders, Setauket (Suffolk)
There are two immature male King Eiders in Setauket Harbor. Shortly after
9:30 this morning, I spotted one, a very dark bird with contrasting white
breast and orange-yellow bill. Moments later, Peter Scully drove up, looked
at the bird, and said it was not the one he has seen over the last few
days. He soon spotted that bird, which has the same bill color but is
almost uniformly paler brown. Both are in the eastern part of the harbor
(which is largely frozen over), viewed from Shore Road.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] eBird.org: Recent Additions to County Checklists
When working on the NYS eBird Hotspots wiki I'll compare the previous bar
chart list of species with the current one picking up any additions or
deletions. By going to each county's 'Overview' page you can determine the
date the species was added by county. Some are from newly submitted
checklists from many months / years ago.

It isn't possible to spot these additions from old checklists. On the
'Overview' page you can sort on 'First Seen' but if the species wasn't
added recently it won't appear at the top of the list.

For each county on the NYS eBird Hotspots site click the 'Overview' link on
the 'Explore a Location' line:
http://ebirding-nys.wikispaces.com/Birding+in+New+York

Since last update: 6 days

Several species were added based on Bull's Birds of NYS © 1998 and by
comparing eBird to the NYSARC Checklist of NYS Birds:
http://nybirds.org/Publications/ChecklistNYS.htm

Green represents a New York State first and yellow highlights a species
added for the first time over the past few months.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Croton Point Rough-legged Hawk, etc
A light morph Rough-legged Hawk was seen hunting Croton Point Park landfill
grasslands this afternoon, viewed from entrance road by the park office.

A Snowy Owl made a brief stopover at Croton Point on Christmas Day, seen by
birders on Saw Mill River Audubon's Monday walk. First spotted by Karalyn
Lamb who was also birding in the park that morning. Observed for several
minutes at a distance and then left undisturbed, it apparently moved on
within the hour -- perhaps with the high winds of the approaching cold
front -- since it was not re-found.

Big increase in waterfowl noted on edges of Croton Reservoir this morning
especially along Route 100 with larger numbers of Ring-necked Ducks, Hooded
and Common Mergansers seen. Smaller water areas and reservoir bays iced up.

However, a drive today from George's Island down to Croton Point resulted
in only two Bald Eagle sightings along the Hudson. Hopefully more to come.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Cackling Geese - Lake Ronkonkoma and surrounds, Suffolk County, LI
Hi all,
Mike Rath and I discovered a number of Cackling Geese yesterday during the
Smithtown CBC. With birds moving around during the day we figured there to
be at least 4 individuals, three of which were well photographed.

The most interesting one displayed a nice white neck collar and with a
really small bill which could possibly be a minima subspecies. This
individual was first detected on Lake Ronkonkoma in the morning and again
later in the day feeding at Sachem High School North fields (assuming it is
the same individual).

Two other individuals were well documented at Great Hollow Middle School in
Nesconset. One being a very "frosty" individual.

https://flic.kr/p/EPRM2N
https://flic.kr/p/21SQRyy

I apologize for the late posting, hopefully the birds are still around. I
would be interested in subspecies discussion.

-Dave

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Late report: Green-winged Teal. FOS on 12/24,Sunday and beautiful views of Rusty Blackbird (F) @ Blind/Turtle Pond on Monday with Paul

above seen on Sunday, 12/24  SE pumphouse on dyke with cluster of other birds:  No. Shovelers, etc.
I saw it with Andrew Rubenstein about 1:30-2 pm.  Andrew heard about it from Joanne Wassmer; I saw it swimming in the area from eastside of pumphouse, lost it, walked to westsidewhere Andrew had arrived and we saw gfreenwing, head tucked in . 
No one reported it..Junko went out to find it and as far as I know, she didn't find it.  I went on Mon. and didn't find it in that area.  I went to Turtle Pond and saw the Rusty with Paul.

“Bronx” Brendan Keogh reported to me this morning that he saw the bird flying over the area of Hunter Island in Pelham Bay Park, Bronx, and it looked to be headed south. His call was at about noon.

I guess the Pelican decided it’s nicer in Sanibel Island or maybe Miami.

Sounds good to me,

Before leaving the beach I returned to Robert Moses Field 2 and

sidewalk that leads to the club house at the golf course. No luck with
the Mountain Bluebird. I left the area about 20 minutes ago.

Paul just phone me as he was watching the gyrfalcon eating a meal at Monty's Bay Marina 2'45. A roughie was in the area too. On his birding outing he found a red-shouldered hawk at Wilcox Dock. That coupled with the golden reported at Point au Roche made Christmas Day a raptor day. I wish I could get out to see these great birds. JUDY Heintz

After a flight at 11 am, the White Pelican took off again at noon headed in
a South West direction. We looked along the Rye coast to no avail. We
also just checked back at the lake but it had not returned. Tom Burke &

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Joyful, joyful !
After attending the 1100 Mass today, while walking to my car, I looked up
and saw a single Turkey Vulture ( could it have been "Lonesome George")
making its way in an easterly direction. My immediate thought was that I
was being rewarded with a "legal" reason to send this post to wish all on
our listserve a joyful and healthy Christmas Season, which continues
through the New Year !

Cheers,
Bob

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Mohonk Lake/Ashokan Reservoir CBC Results
The 68th annual Mohonk Lake/Ashokan Reservoir Christmas Bird Count
(Ulster County) was conducted on Saturday, 16 December 2017, under
relatively pleasant weather conditions. Collectively it was another
exceptionally productive count, following last year's record-breaking
number of species. Pending review of several unusual species for this
count circle, a tentative new high total of 87 species were found on
count day, plus an additional 2 species during the count week period
(Mute Swan and Merlin), exceeding last year's record 84 species and well
above our ten-year average of 76 species/year.

Abundance also set a new record high, with 22,300 individuals greatly
exceeding our previous high count of 16,092 birds in 2008 and our
ten-year average of 13,242. The total number of individuals was greatly
influenced this year by 5,811 Canada Geese, a number that was adjusted
down by more than 1,000 birds in an attempt to reduce potential
duplication from roving flocks; and an incredible 3,504 American Robins
(2,027 recorded by just one field party). Our effort also set a new
record high with 15 field parties, 44 field observers, and 4 feeder
watchers contributing to the final numbers.

Highlights include our first record of a Greater White-fronted Goose,
nicely photographed in a field associating with a large flock of Canada
Geese, advancing our 68-year cumulative to 147 species. Three species
were recorded for only the second time in this count's history, a Golden
Eagle observed in flight over the Farm Hub (our previous record in
1998), and a Canvasback (previously 3 in 1972) and one White-winged
Scoter (previously 4 in 2011) on Ashokan Reservoir. A lone Eastern
Phoebe was recorded for only the third time, and last appeared on this
count in 2008. Two Peregrine Falcons (single individuals observed by
two separate field parties) represent our fourth count record and a new
high count; and one Long-tailed Duck was also our fourth count record
for this species, absent from this count since 1975. (A Black Scoter
was observed just outside the count circle and would have been a first
count record, and photos of a possible Slaty-backed Gull are under
review, with the gull currently listed as an unidentified gull species.)

None of the species found on this year's effort set a new record low
count. An additional 19 species were found in sufficiently high numbers
to tie or set new record high counts (HC), with all of our regularly
occurring woodpeckers detected in remarkably good numbers:

Cooper's Hawk (16, eclipsing 12 in 2015)
Red-shouldered Hawk (9, eclipsing 7 in 2014)
Great Horned Owl (14, double the previous HC of 7 in 2014 and well above
our 2.4 ten-year average)
Barred Owl (7, tying the previous HC from 2010, double the ten-year
average of 3.5)

Red-bellied Woodpecker (141, well above the previous HC of 101 in 2016
and our ten-year average of 71)
Yellow-bellied Sapsucker (40, more than double our HC of 19 in 2016,
four-times our ten-year average of 10/year)
Hairy Woodpecker (45, surpassing 40 in 2014)
Northern Flicker (47, nearly double our HC of 24 in 2015 and well above
the 14.3 ten-year average)
Pileated Woodpecker (33, edging out 31 from 2011 and 2014)
(one Red-headed Woodpecker is always a good find, occurring for the 13th
time on this count with a previous HC of 3 in 1984; and 158 Downy
Woodpeckers just missed our previous HC of 161.)

Northern Shrike (1, tying our previous high counts, our 8th overall
record)
Winter Wren (12, eclipsing 8 in 2012, well above our ten-year average of
3.2)
Golden-crowned Kinglet (80, eclipsing 75 in 2009)
Hermit Thrush (13, edging out 12 in 2013)
American Robin (an amazing 3,504 birds, incomparable to our previous HC
of 942 in 1998)
Yellow-rumped Warbler (14, tying our HC from 1989)
Fox Sparrow (11, surpassing 7 in 2015)
White-throated Sparrow (984, more than double the 488 recorded in 2008)
Song Sparrow (222, eclipsing 180 in 2012)
American Goldfinch (495, well above our previous HC of 335 in 2014)

A complete summary report will appear at a later date in the John
Burroughs Natural History Society newsletter and on their website.
Thanks to all of the participants for a remarkable effort, and once
again this year a special thanks to Kyla Haber, Mark DeDea, and everyone
that helped with preparing the food and facilities for the post-count
compilation at Hasbrouck Park.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Townsend's Solitaire: Maybe?
Spent a short time at Tiffany Creek Preserve this afternoon. Caught a
brief glimpse of a solitaire sized bird flying out of a juniper at the far
end of the field. It disappeared into the unmowed vegetation never to be
respotted. Will have to check back tomorrow.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Tufted Duck, Santapogue Creek, Lindenhurst (Suffolk County)
There is a Tufted Duck mixed in with a Scaup flock at Santapogue Creek (Suffolk). The bird was near the island where the Long-billed Dowitchers are most frequently seen half way down Venetian Boulevard, towards Venetian Shores park. There are several small flocks of scaup spread out along the creek so some searching may be required.

If people try for this bird it is important that they DO NOT enter the property of the small marina adjacent to the island. This is private property and the owner has been quite clear that birders should only view from the roadside.

Of additional interest in the flocks present on site are Ring-necked Duck x Scaup sp hybrid and an apparent Tufted Duck x Greater Scaup hybrid.

Despite having been absent during the freezing weather of last weekends Captree CBC, there are still a small group of Long-billed Dowitchers in the area.
