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: 28 days

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] Prospect Lake Common Gallinule (Kings)

The COMMON GALLINULE has decided to travel.


Kathy Toomey tweeted out a note at 315 this afternoon that she spotted the bird in the reeds between West Island and the Rustic Shelter. This is across the lake from the Rink, now the southwest Lake the place to see the Gallinule. The best vantage might be the half moon bench area (opp the island) looking northwest.


( nearest Train is F to Fort hamilton Parkway if this bird sticks to the spot)

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Good Seabird Flight at Robert Moses State Park (Suffolk Co.)
Four birders enjoyed a good seabird flight at RMSP this morning on a southeast wind, featuring a close-in dark morph Northern Fulmar (which I did not get on), four adult Black-legged Kittiwakes, three Parasitic Jaegers, twelve Razorbills, and the expected loon and sea duck species. Halfway through our watch a heavy rain moved in, and the wind shifted west resulting in a decline in seabird variety. During our watch hundreds of Bonapartes Gulls were observed well off-shore, getting off the water in response to harassment from a Parasitic Jaeger. Two flyby Royal Terns were also observed.

On a related note, the immature Hudsonian Godwit continues at Heckscher State Park Field 7.

Good Birding,

Ken & Sue Feustel, Shai Mitra, Pat Lindsay

The SAY'S PHOEBE was not relocated after I texted it out and posted it to
the birding listservs on Sunday, in spite of people arriving at the site not
long afterward. By the way, Vicki Rothman sent me a diagnostic photo of the
bird that she took.



Good birding!

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Bryant Park
On Tuesday, an 11:30-12:00 walk along all four edges of the park and the
plantings around the library uncovered at least one (and probably two)
Common Yellowthroats, five Hermit Thrushes (four amid the library
plantings), a Catbird (in the park's southwest corner) and a Winter Wren
(in the scrubby plantings on the park's western edge, near the statue). The
Yellowthroats seem to have a predilection for the insides of the big
(wicker?) balls strung with white lights. --Joe Wallace

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Late Osprey
While checking out some sites for the possible installation of fish
passages in northern Nassau County earlier today, I saw an osprey with
fish in its talons on the pond that feeds the Saddle Rock Grist Mill
situated on the Great Neck peninsula. This is one of the later dates
I've had for Osprey on Long Island.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] The Repaving at Orchard Beach Parking Lot, Bronx
I don’t see this posted online although I sent it out earlier so here it is again:

Hi All,

A lot of people have contacted me about the repaving of the Orchard Beach Parking Lot. For those who are not aware, these puddles have become a terrific attraction for all kinds of birds this year.

As a courtesy, Marianne Anderson, the Pelham Bay Park Administrator telephoned me this morning to inform me of the project. The concessionaire, who runs the lot during the summer months for the city, has worked out a deal with the city for the repaving of the entire lot. It’s costing 2 million dollars. Half will be repaved now and if the funds are there, the rest will be done in the spring. I don’t think Marianne has any power to halt the project but we can try. From what I understand, the money for the repaving is at hand and the work is going to continue. It is a deal between the city and the concession for parking. There will be new toll booths as well.

I believe the lot is built on landfill and will become uneven again, even with repaving. In addition, there is no drainage and the water table is very low along the beach, so in time, there will be puddles. Mother Nature will prevail.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] NYS eBird Hotspots: New/Renamed Locations (8-Nov-'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.

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 (5,948) has also been updated.
Links to both the New and Renamed pages appears on the 'Shared Location
Updates' line:

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.

Both Will Pollard and Joe Girgente reported the reclusive bird between 10:41-11:30 am along the shore edges of Music Island towards the Lefrak Rink area, presumably in the southeast channel of the Island.Its been adept hiding in the phragmite or cattail edges since it was seen very early this morning. It uses the whole island edges for its rounds.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] ADMIN: eList Update
As many of you are aware, this eList service experienced an unplanned outage from early on 13 November until just this morning. This resulted from a major outage caused by a failure in a storage array in the server farm housing many Cornell University services. Cornell Information Technology (CIT) has been working around the clock to bring everything back online again. Several University services are still offline.

Details and updates about this unplanned outage may be monitored here: https://itservicealerts.hosting.cornell.edu/view/4982

As far as I understand, older submissions to this eList remain in the queue and should be sent out as soon as the eList comes completely back online.

If you don’t see your previously submitted message posted here https://www.mail-archive.com/<nysbirds-l...>/maillist.html (Google: The Mail Archive, NYSbirds-L), and if you feel it is still relevant today, please feel free to re-send to the eList once again and verify that it appears at The Mail Archive.

We have grown so accustomed to having certain internet services at our fingertips, that when these relied-upon services disappear, it can be quite a shock.

Thanks for your patience and understanding, and good birding!

Sincerely,
Chris T-H

Yeah, unfortunately, they’ve done this at Heckscher State Park and at Smith’s Point, Suffolk County Park. The Heckscher puddles are not as good as they used to be, but they still attract some birds. The ones at Smiths Point are gone.

Later, on a brief visit to Pelham Bay Park Bob and I saw the continuing American Pipit near the Orchard Beach parking lot and four Eastern Bluebirds at Turtle Cove (thanks Noa & May Cruz and Linda Yuen).

Linda Yuen showed me a photo she'd taken today at the Orchard Beach parking lot of a winter-plumaged Laughing Gull (or hybrid) with a light mantle, probably the same bird photographed by Steve Walter on November 4th.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Western Tanager Weekday Directions
Your best bet for parking during the week is at the Alley Pond Environmental
Center, located on Northern Blvd. just east of the Cross Island Parkway in
northeastern Queens. There is legal parking by the car dealership and on
tiny 234th St. - where a trailhead puts you close to the Western Tanager
area - but chances of getting a spot there during the week will be small.
Alley Pond Golf Center also has parking spots, but it's on the north side of
the busy road and I don't recommend that.



From APEC, walk east on Northern. There is a trailhead just past the bridge
that crosses over Alley Creek. Follow that trail, marked by blue blazes.
Eventually, that'll put you on a berm that goes east (with a newly
constructed pond on the left). At the end of the berm, turn right (south).
On the southwest corner of the trail T-intersection are a number of trees
that have berries (Eric said crab apple). This sounds like where Eric first
saw the tanager. His later sighting was in similar trees further south,
about 50 feet before a little trail that goes off to the right (there are
signs indicating the restoration project and herbicide application). He put
a log in the trail at the sighting location. Also, look at any of the now
bare tall trees, among Robin gatherings. The tanager was seen, high up, in
such a tree near the trail T-intersection (tree on the north side of the
berm).



Also, look for 2 Orange-crowned Warblers in the brushy area on the east side
of the trail, just south of the berm.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Western Tanager, Queens, NYC, Directions
I was able to catch up with Eric Miller's Western Tanager at Alley Pond Park today, Queens. Directions as follows:


Set your GPS for "East Hills Chevrolet" Dealership, Rte 25A, Northern Blvd, Queens. there is a dead end road immediately to the west of the dealership. Park on the dead end (see sign for Alley Pond Park property), walk around the construction fence, follow the wide wood-chipped trail as it veers to the right. The trail dead ends (200 feet?) at a recently constructed, small freshwater wetland about the size of an above ground pool.


When there, look to the left and see a large, fully green-leaved willow tree, about 75 feet away. It was here that the bird was feeding on the ground, or near so, and popped up into the willow, calling for me once. I think it is feeding on white mulberry.


Also saw the Black-headed Gull at Pelham Bay Park in parking lot puddle.


Outer beach was very quiet. Looked for yesterday's Snowy Owl at Robert Moses SP, Fire Island with no luck. Heard a third-hand report of a Snowy at Jones Beach West End dune area. Looked but no dice.


Cheers,


JPA

From: GQ <glennq...>
Subject: [nysbirds-l] Sharp-shinned Hawk behavior
While doing yard work late this afternoon, the blue jays at my feeder went berserk. I assumed that a hawk had made a run and as I crept around the corner of the house, sure enough a Sharp-shinned Hawk was sitting on my fence. I watched it for a few seconds and it suddenly jumped headfirst into a bush packed with sparrows. All the White-throated Sparrows seemed to know that strength in numbers is important, so they all left the bush at the same time. The hawk remained in the bush, waiting for the lone bird left, a House Sparrow, to make its move. The sparrow made a run for it and didn’t make it 10 feet before the hawk deftly picked it out of mid-air.
The hawk immediately went to the ground, landing literally only 4 feet from where I was standing!! I froze like a statue (much the way I do in the house when my wife is calling me to do something). The hawk was oblivious to my presence. Here is the interesting behavior. As the hawk stood on top of the still-alive sparrow, it repeatedly opened its mouth very wide. Eventually, it violently ejected some kind of black object from its mouth. Then it went to work plucking the sparrow’s feathers. I noted where the object landed and retrieved the gooey prize after the hawk decided to take the sparrow into a nearby tree for better plucking.
I took the object to my patio table and disassembled it with my knife. It was mostly feathers but I found a tiny beak and several very small bones. So, the hawk had recently eaten either a small passerine or a White Castle hamburger. I did not know that hawks coughed up pellets.
Anyway, I thought this would make for interesting reading as you are preparing your Sunday dinner.

PS: I can’t imagine anybody is interested but I took a few pictures of the pellet before and after pulling it apart. I’ll be happy to send them along.

Cheers!!

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Western Tanager, Queens
I just got a call from Eric Miller, who had a female-type Western Tanager in East Alley Marsh, which is across the creek from Alley Pond Environmental Center. It was last seen by at least a trio of other Birders, heading south from the Chevy dealership on the south side of Northern Boulevard.

Good luck if you go.

Good Birding,

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Black-billed Cuckoo? Caumsett State Park Suffolk County
Late this morning around noon Bobby Rosetti and I found a cuckoo which I am fairly sure was an immature Black-billed. It was moving west along the edge of the shrubline of the horse riding area that is for equestrians only, northeast of the main entrance, and west of the manure fields. We lost it when it crossed a main path that leads to the main buildings and disappeared into the woods. The bill was all dark, but the confusing thing was a lot of rufous in the wing, more typical of Yellow-billed. The one undertail view I had was of an entirely gray tail, with no obvious white spots, which I think is consistent with immature Black-billed. I believe immature Black-bills can show more rufous in the primaries than the adults. Bulls Birds Of New York list Nov 13 as the late date so this was quite a surprise.

Vicki Rothman and Kathy DiVito just found a SAY'S PHOEBE south of the
Village of Clarendon in Orleans County. The bird was in a horse pasture on
New Guinea Rd, not far from the intersection with Upper Holly Rd.
Unfortunately, I don't know if the pasture is east or west of New Holly Rd
but, as I noted, it is not far from that road.



Good luck if you are able to go for it!

From: Timothy Healy <tph56...>
Subject: [nysbirds-l] Montauk area birding notes, Pacific Loon and more
After arriving in Montauk yesterday afternoon, I set about exploring the shores of the Lake in search of the Brown Booby. I found no sign of the long-lingering rarity: hopefully she moved south ahead of the cold weather. A pipit and some Purple Sandpipers were observed at the Gin Beach area, and I set up for an evening seawatch from the restaurant at the Point. Several hundred Bonaparte’s Gulls were mixed in with Laughers and other species, the highest numbers I’ve seen around the island in some time. There were also two Great Shearwaters associating with the fishing boats just beyond the breakers.

I started another seawatch from Camp Hero before sunrise this morning. Anthony Collerton joined me, and shortly after doing so he spotted a Pacific Loon flying west to east and out beyond the Point. He also picked out two early Razorbills, and I relocated one of yesterday’s shearwaters. Duck numbers are increasing but not yet peaked, though five Green-winged Teal rafting with the scoters were interesting. Non-avian highlights included a Gray Seal, as well as a Minke Whale and a Humpback observed feeding in very close association: the alternating appearance of different dorsal fins confused us at first.

We explored a few more sites around the area, turning up a Parasitic Jaeger and some Snow Buntings on the west side of Montauk Inlet, and a surprising pod of Short-beaked Common Dolphins feeding north of Culloden Point.

[~BEGIN RBA TAPE~]

Greetings! This is the New York Rare Bird Alert for Friday, November 10,
2017 at 8:00 pm. [Note: Posted late due to technical difficulties.]

The highlights of today’s tape are CORN CRAKE, BROWN BOOBY, SAY’S PHOEBE,
BLACK-HEADED GULL, SANDHILL CRANE, NORTHERN FULMAR, NORTHERN SHRIKE,
HUDSONIAN GODWIT, BLUE GROSBEAK and much more.

But firstly, our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Holly
Wilson, who passed away this week much too early in life. Holly was a
spirited young lady and exuberant new birder, and we will certainly miss
seeing her in the field.

Quite spectacular this week was the discovery of a young CORN CRAKE feeding
along Ocean Parkway at Cedar Beach Tuesday morning. The bird fed along a
stretch of grass next to the brushline continually disappearing into the
bordering brush throughout the day. The Crake remained there all day
Wednesday but was venturing out further into the grass, much closer to the
roadway, and this may have been its undoing, as it was found dead Thursday
morning, having been struck by a car. The retrieved specimen was
transported to the American Museum of Natural History in New York City,
where quick analysis determined it was a somewhat underweight male in
otherwise decent condition. Most unusual in this case was that many
birders got to enjoy this individual before it died, as most U.S. records
of this very rare vagrant involve Crakes dispatched by hunters.

The adult BROWN BOOBY was still present on Lake Montauk last Sunday, our
only report this week.

A nice find was a SAY’S PHOEBE seen briefly near Field 8 at Heckscher State
Park Wednesday morning but not seen again thereafter, despite searching.
During the week Heckscher has hosted some nice shorebirds, including 4
different HUDSONIAN GODWITS, an AMERICAN GOLDEN-PLOVER and a LONG-BILLED
DOWITCHER, these mostly at a puddle in Field 7.

Three SANDHILL CRANES flying over the Greenwich Audubon hawk watch Tuesday
may have been the same three reported over northern Staten Island on
Wednesday.

An adult BLACK-HEADED GULL was seen mostly in the Orchard Beach parking lot
at Pelham Bay Park, visiting there at least to Tuesday, and also there on
Sunday were an immature BLACK-LEGGED KITTIWAKE photographed before it flew
off and a LAPLAND LONGSPUR feeding in the parking lot most of the day.

A NORTHERN SHRIKE was photographed Thursday morning at Jones Beach West End
Field 2, and a BLUE GROSEAK was found at the West End turnaround last
Sunday, while 21 TUNDRA SWANS were reported flying over the West End
mid-day Thursday.

A GREATER WHITE-FRONTED GOOSE was with CANADAS off Oakleigh Avenue north of
Sound Avenue in Calverton today, a couple of CACKLING GEESE have been
reported this week, and last Saturday EURASIAN WIGEON were seen on the East
Pond at Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge and on Eastport Pond. An HUDSONIAN
GODWIT was also on the East Pond Saturday.

Pelagic birds from the south shore of Long Island featured 2 GREAT
SHEARWATERS off Robert Moses State Park Sunday, a PARASITIC JAEGER off Fort
Tilden Wednesday, with 2 Thursday, and 2 BLACK-LEGGED KITTIWAKES off Camp
Hero at Montauk Point Sunday, while a boat 6 miles south of Amagansett
Monday reported a NORTHERN FULMAR and a GREAT SHEARWATER.

A RED-HEADED WOODPECKER was in Greenwood Cemetery Brooklyn all week, and a
CLAY-COLORED SPARROW was seen at the Marine Park Salt Marsh Nature Center
Saturday. A LAPLAND LONGSPUR flew over Robert Moses State Park Thursday.
Other species of note this week have included some AMERICAN BITTERNS and
ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLERS and numerous lingering late migrants.

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] Queens - Riis Park lingering goodies
I spent the morning mostly at Riis Park and later on at the Fort Tilden Fisherman's parking lot and a bit at Breezy Point.

It was nice and "cool" when I started around 7:00 AM, which began with a seawatch at RIIS. It was encouraged by the Gull action. An active school of Bunker was on the move and it pulled in several hundred Gulls attracted to easy pickings.

Throughout the day, I kept track of the Gull action in the midst of some good ole "ground and pound" land birding. Despite the number of Gulls, I did not find anything of note. The Gull flock consisted of Great Black-backed, Ring-billed, Laughing, Lesser-black Backed (2), Bonaparte's and the dominant presence of Herring Gulls.

I fared better with the land birds pulling out some lingering hardies, all at Riis. The highlights were: BALTIMORE ORIOLE (1), NASHVILLE WARBLER (1) and RED-EYED VIREO (2).

Ruby-crowned Kinglet (2), Hermit Thrush (6), Swamp Sparrow (5), Gray Catbird (3) Brown Thrasher and Orange-crowned Warbler were also good on this "cool" day.

Lots of Red-winged Blackbirds were moving throughout the day and my flock count/estimation was 2500 by the time I called it a day. Among the Red-winged Blackbird flocks were small numbers of other passerines, including Cedar Waxwings, Rusty Blackbirds and Cowbirds.

Cheers,

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Cackling Geese, Hendrickson Park, Valley Stream
Yesterday’s Cackler continues at the handball courts, and I located another individual on the lakeshore nearby. This second bird is even smaller and more striking, with a tiny bill and a very blocky head. At a glance, the goose strongly resembled the one that stayed through last winter, most based on overall proportions and plumage details like the cheek patch shape and the white collar. There was also a dark-cheeked, small Canada in the same subflock also looked quite familiar in comparison to an associate of the ‘16-‘17 visitor. I’ll have to review my photos, but it definitely caught my attention.

A pair of Wood Ducks are also present on the lake.

Cheers!

I drive south on Horseblock Road (Suffolk Co) every day on my lunch hour. This week, I have been seeing massive flocks of gulls coming out of and towering over the Brookhaven landfill.
I haven't been able to stop but these flocks appear to be of several thousand birds. There must be something interesting or unusual mixed in.
I don't know what it's like inside the landfill but I think you can drive inside it.
Just thought I'd throw this out there for the gull-hounds of Long Island.....

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Upcoming Linnaean Society of NY Program, Tuesday, November 14, 2017
New York State Birders,


On Tuesday evening, November 14, 2017, the Linnaean Society of New York
2017-18 Speaker Program will include two exciting presentations, plus an
impromptu “show and tell” in the break between the scheduled presentations
by Paul Sweet. The topic of Dr. Sweet’s show and tell will be Corn Crakes
in NY State and the specimens in the collection of AMNH. Crex crex...



6:00 pm – Birdmania: A Remarkable Passion for Birds – Bernd Brunner


In his riveting book (published in October 2017), Brunner explores some
fascinating stories of people who devoted their lives to birds. He provides
a unique perspective on why we are attracted to birds and how we encounter
and describe them, and yields insights into the long and convoluted history
of a passion. Along the way, Bernd Brunner touches upon the history of
ornithology. In his presentation, accompanied by vintage artwork, he will
focus on some not-so-well-known bird lovers and provide vivid proof that
people who love birds, whether they are amateurs or professionals, are as
captivating and varied as the birds that give flight to their dreams.



7:30 pm – Chimney Swifts and People: Past, Present and Future – John Connors


In 1682 a swift was found nesting for the first time in a chimney at a
colonist’s cabin in Maine. This event forever changed the relationship
between this species and people. From the journals of early explorers
through the efforts of the largest all-volunteer research project to study
the migration of a single species of bird, to Jesuit missionaries in a
far-off land, it’s a remarkable story. And it’s not over: the next chapter
will be written by us. John Connors, a Long Island native who currently
manages the Chimney Swift Research Project with Audubon and the North
Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, will share his experiences and
research on this incredible, high-flying species.


The presentations are as usual in the Linder Theater on the first floor of
the American Museum of Natural History (enter at West 77th Street between
Central Park West and Columbus Avenue).

Holly was my wife, best friend and always patient field guide. Over the
past few years, I have met so many of you out in the field and heard so
many wonderful stories about even more of you and I am so grateful to
this community for being such a warm and welcoming group.

I remember the first time Holly took me birding shortly after we met.
She asked if I would go with her, and I said sure, I'll go for a walk in
the woods and you can look for anything you want. even after that first
trip, with a funky old pair of Sears binoculars I found in the attic, I
was hooked but I still didn't know how big a part of our life it would
become.

Holly was troubled and sometimes it would be hard to get her out, but
birding was a refuge for her and no matter how bad a day started out any
day we spent in the field ended as one of the good days.

While we all know that we are out there for the birds, it wouldn't be
nearly as much fun without this community to share it with. So it's
from the bottom of my heart that I thank all of you, the ones we have
met personally, and all of those that made it a good day by getting us
on a great bird, thanks for being there for Holly!

See you in the field,
Phillip Wilson-Camhi

After a morning birding today, a dozen of my birding friends took me out to brunch today to celebrate my birthday this past Tuesday. That was followed by a lifer on Wednesday. Great birthday present. I want to thank all for the best wishes from the gang and also from the a bunch gathered at Cedar Beach that I normally don't see very often.

As Yoda says “900 years old , I am". Just knock off a zero and you have it. Thanks a lot guys!!!

Subject: Re: [nysbirds-l] Accidentals and Their Survival
The decline of the corn crake population in Scotland is very much in the news. This from BBC earlier today. http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-scotland-highlands-islands-41919996

Fellow birders,

I had a question, with the demise of the Corn Crake.

I was curious if anyone has access to any studies done about the likelihood of accidentals from other continents making it back to their breeding or wintering grounds alive?

Or if anyone had statistics of how many do survive once they leave the accidental land theyve landed on?

Thanks and good birding!

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Orchard Beach- Pelham Bay Park, Bronx
No Corn Crake, (RIP) but Pelham Bay Park was pretty good today. A leaking underground pipe, marked with an orange cone, has become another “puddle bird" attraction. The leak is on the SW corner of the grassy oval that leads to the Orchard Beach Promenade. I found four American Pipits, later a dozen more were seen by Brendan Keogh. It was the spot where our group found the Wilson’s Snipe a couple of weeks ago.

Bruno Attisani, a local photographer, who is often in the park in the early morning, had a Great Horned Owl on Hunter Island. In the parking lot, I tried for, but was unsuccessful in relocating the Black-headed Gull. While sorting the gulls a Peregrine dove down and briefly bathed in the puddle. I later met Bronx Brendan Keogh. Together we marveled at least a dozen Red-throated Loons, a dozen or so Double-crested Cormorants, a hundred or so gulls, a raft of Bufflehead and another raft of about 30 Ruddies enjoying a feeding frenzy right off the beach. There were most likely several other species out there and I was angry at myself for being too lazy to schlepp my scope. Gerry McGee met us too and the three of us had a nice morning doing the loop on Hunter Island.

One can always count on Pelham Bay Park to produce enough species to keep things interesting. The proof is that the more birders that come here, the more great birds are found.

If you’ve been keeping up with the recent posts, you are probably aware of that in the last few weeks, with more experienced and excellent birders, we’ve had lots of Nelson’s and a LeConte Sparrow, a Black-legged Kittiwake, Lapland Longspur, American Pipit, Black-headed Gull, Bonaparte’s Gulls and lots of the “regulars” including some interesting stuff like Nashville Warbler and a Great-crested Flycatcher, found a couple of days ago.

During August, September and October we had a great variety of excellent shorebirds, easily seen and photographed in the puddles.

Pelham Bay Park + More Birders = More Rarities!

They are here, just not enough birders to locate them! Come on out!

Several people have asked about cause of death. The bird was clearly hit by a car with a fractures in both hind limbs and the pelvis.

Jonas Lai has skinned the bird and we have obtained the following data.
The bird was a male with testes 5 x 2.5 mm
It weighed 100g which is rather light for this species. Published weights range from 135-210 g ((Handbook of the Birds of Europe the Middle East and North Africa). There was no fat but the pectoral muscles did not appear atrophied.
Stomach contained tiny insect parts which have been persevered but not identified.

Fellow birders,

I had a question, with the demise of the Corn Crake.

I was curious if anyone has access to any studies done about the likelihood of accidentals from other continents making it back to their breeding or wintering grounds alive?

Or if anyone had statistics of how many do survive once they leave the accidental land they’ve landed on?

Thanks and good birding!

The Pink-footed Goose arrived at the Malone Recreation Park along with hordes of other geese this morning shortly after 10:00. When I arrived at about 9:45 relatively few geese were on the pond, and Eileen Wheeler who had been there for about 30 minutes said most of those birds had just flown in. By about 11:00 close to 4000 Snows and 2000 Canadas were on the pond, and I was able to pick out one each Cackling and Ross's Goose. The Pink-footed was still present when I left shortly after noon.

Sorry for the reposting, I just found this out. Holly's husband and
family ask that in lieu of flowers, please consider a gift to one of the
organizations below.

Donors Choose -  https://www.donorschoose.org/ This is a crowd funding
site for educators, and connects teacher in high-needs communities with
donors.

Holly was an ESL teacher in the School of Discovery and Exploration in
Sunset Park, Brooklyn, PS503. She taught mainly kindergarten and first
graders who spoke Chinese, Spanish, Urdu, and many other languages, and
was often their first contact in the English-speaking community. Helping
out in the classrooms with the literacy side of their education, she
brought them from having no English at all to being able to speak and
read it. She loved her 'babies' and stood up for them at every
opportunity. 


New York State Ornithological Association -
http://www.nybirds.org/FedDonations.htm We all know how important this
organization is to the birding community and to conservation and
education in general.

Thank you all again for your comforting words and thoughts.

 A great many of our friends in the New York birding community knew
Holly Wilson, our beloved niece, frequent birding companion, and vibrant
young woman. We lost our Holly on Tuesday, to suicide.

We so appreciate the kind thoughts and feelings many of you have shared
with us, helping us through our fog of grief. It means more than you
could ever know.

Some have asked for details about the wake. We will be celebrating
Holly's life this coming Sunday, 12 November, at 2:00-6:00 pm, at the
Overton Funeral Home (172 Main Street Islip, NY 11751; 631-581-5085).
According to her wishes, she will be cremated, and her ashes will be
spread at a favorite birding location in East Hampton at a later date.

It's very sad to hear the Corn Crake is dead, but not surprised at all.  I figured it would be hit by a car at some point.  Just wish it had lasted a little longer for more people to see.  Oh well.  It was a great bird for those who saw it.  Probably a once in a lifetime sighting in the US for everyone.

I am still in disbelief days after learning about Holly. I will always remember her radiant smile and spirited ways during the days of sharing a Margarita at Cupsogue.

My heartfelt condolences to the entire family on such a tragic loss. Holly was a sweet, spirited soul who will be missed.

This has been hard to process.

Subject: Re: [nysbirds-l] Holly Wilson, 1986-2017
Holly was my wife, best friend and always patient field guide. Over the
past few years, I have met so many of you out in the field and heard so
many wonderful stories about even more of you and I am so grateful to
this community for being such a warm and welcoming group.

I remember the first time Holly took me birding shortly after we met.
She asked if I would go with her, and I said sure, I'll go for a walk in
the woods and you can look for anything you want. even after that first
trip, with a funky old pair of Sears binoculars I found in the attic, I
was hooked but I still didn't know how big a part of our life it would
become.

Holly was troubled and sometimes it would be hard to get her out, but
birding was a refuge for her and no matter how bad a day started out any
day we spent in the field ended as one of the good days.

While we all know that we are out there for the birds, it wouldn't be
nearly as much fun without this community to share it with. So it's
from the bottom of my heart that I thank all of you, the ones we have
met personally, and all of those that made it a good day by getting us
on a great bird, thanks for being there for Holly!

See you in the field,
Phillip Wilson-Camhi

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Tilden and Breezy Point Queens Co. 10-8-17
Highlights from an early morning venture at the two sites.


Tilden off the Fisherman's parking lot:

Green-winged Teal getting tossed around in the surf (had a perplexed look, like how the heck did I end up here).

1 Parasitic Jaeger - picked up just below the horizon, heading east. Cloud cover made it easy to track this bad boy for some time.

Small numbers of Northern Gannets, Black Scoters. A few scattered Long-tailed Ducks, Red-throated Loons and Double Crested Cormorants.

Breezy Point:

Royal Terns and Bonaparte's Gulls off the Ocean - all heading west. Forster's Terns in close on the bayside. 9 Common Eiders heading west just off the tip along with a few Purple Sandpipers.

1 Ipswich form of Savannah Sparrow in the wheel ruts on the beach. 1 lingering NORTHERN PARULA near the parking lot. 2 Ruby-crowned Kinglets.

A good number of Yellow-rumped Warblers continue (>150). A few Hermit Thrushes, Gray Catbird, Brown Thrasher and 1 Eastern Towhee. All notable for CBC scouting.

Good numbers of White-throated Sparrows and Dark-eyed Juncos near the parking lot but nothing else in that mix.

Cheers,

We so appreciate the kind thoughts and feelings many of you have shared

Some have asked for details about the wake. We will be celebrating

Subject: Re: [nysbirds-l] age of Corn Crake
I agree with Andrew Block that the Corncrake is (was)a juvenile (first-cycle, first-fall) bird. Most field guides only show the adult plumage, but there's a very nice illustration of the "1st-winter" plumage in "Rare Birds of North America" by Howell, Lewington, and Russell.

Does anyone agree with me when I say this bird looks to be a juvenile? It doesn't seem to have the gray typical of adults on the breast, throat, and face. I'm also glad it's not being as secretive as they are supposed to be. What a great bird.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Pink-footed Goose in Malone (Franklin Co.)
I am posting on behalf of Hollis White (he is having trouble posting to the
list). Hollis and Denise White found a Pink-footed Goose at the Malone
Recreational Park yesterday (Wed. Nov. 8, 2017) among the hordes of Snow
Geese (a major birding attraction at this location in Nov.!). Hollis plans
to be at the park again today. This appears to be a first record for this
species in Franklin County.



I heard about this sighting from Willie D'Anna (thanks Willie!) this
morning. (Hollis sent a photo of the goose to a friend in Canada, who
forwarded it to Willie and he identified the goose.) I called Hollis this
morning to confirm the location and he asked me to post on his behalf.

I should probably soften my reference to the NJ Dotterels as 'likely'.
Reviewing the heavily cropped photos (see NJ list) I'm less convinced that
American Golden-Plover can be safely ruled out. Hopefully the birds have
lingered overnight and will be studied carefully today. Will update the
list if I hear any more.

Dotterel is a species that comes to mind when thinking of possible origins
for a Corncrake and Common Greenshank. There was also a recent report of a
candidate Common/Oriental Cuckoo in MA but as far as I know it was not
photographed or refound.

Subject: Re: DECEASED - Re: [nysbirds-l] Corn Crake at Cedar Beach (Suffolk Co.)
Having this very exciting bird in our area for a few days reminded me of Van Morrison's lyric from his meditation "Coney Island" --- "Out all day birdwatching and the craic was good". Believe that term for good conversation is pronounced the same way as the bird. Things come in threes and while I missed the Greenshank and the Corn Crake you twitchers should be good for one more great rarity before winter sets in. Good craic and good birding.

Did anyone collect the carcass? Was it roadkilled? Even if damaged we can still obtain useful data from this specimen.

Sad news indeed to hear about our old world visitor. Thanks to everyone who posted updates and to the several locals who left me voice mails and off list emails, and to Ken T., who facilitated my brief but satisfying looks as I was rushing between meetings. Of course, Corn Crake is already on the NYSOA list, but the license plates I noted from 5 states as I pulled away yesterday are a testament to its specialness.
I believe a toast to this cool little bird will be in order tonight at the Brightwaters Thursday night watering hole.

Subject: DECEASED - Re: [nysbirds-l] Corn Crake at Cedar Beach (Suffolk Co.)

This is unfortunate news for such a phenomenal bird and for birders traveling to see this individual.

Thought Id make this topic more obvious in the subject.

Sincerely,

A Corn Crake (this is no joke) is currently feeding on the north shoulder of the Ocean Parkway east of the Cedar Beach marina. The bird is staying close to the shrubline. From the west bound lane line up the Cedar Overlook cell tower to your left. Also, there is a south facing Emergency Stopping Only sign on the north side of the parkway. Sue and I are watching the bird with Shai Mitra and Pat Lindsay. Photos later on my Flickr site.

Did anyone collect the carcass? Was it roadkilled? Even if damaged we can still obtain useful data from this specimen.

Thanks, Paul

Sad news indeed to hear about our old world visitor. Thanks to everyone who posted updates and to the several locals who left me voice mails and off list emails, and to Ken T., who facilitated my brief but satisfying looks as I was rushing between meetings. Of course, Corn Crake is already on the NYSOA list, but the license plates I noted from 5 states as I pulled away yesterday are a testament to its specialness.
I believe a toast to this cool little bird will be in order tonight at the Brightwaters Thursday night watering hole.

Subject: DECEASED - Re: [nysbirds-l] Corn Crake at Cedar Beach (Suffolk Co.)

This is unfortunate news for such a phenomenal bird – and for birders traveling to see this individual.

Thought I’d make this topic more obvious in the subject.

Sincerely,
Chris T-H

Unfortunately, I am sad to report Corn Crake found deceased in same location this A.M. 6:25 by other birders.

A Corn Crake (this is no joke) is currently feeding on the north shoulder of the Ocean Parkway east of the Cedar Beach marina. The bird is staying close to the shrubline. From the west bound lane line up the Cedar Overlook cell tower to your left. Also, there is a south facing “Emergency Stopping Only” sign on the north side of the parkway. Sue and I are watching the bird with Shai Mitra and Pat Lindsay. Photos later on my Flickr site.

Subject: RE: DECEASED - Re: [nysbirds-l] Corn Crake at Cedar Beach (Suffolk Co.)
Sad news indeed to hear about our old world visitor. Thanks to everyone who posted updates and to the several locals who left me voice mails and off list emails, and to Ken T., who facilitated my brief but satisfying looks as I was rushing between meetings. Of course, Corn Crake is already on the NYSOA list, but the license plates I noted from 5 states as I pulled away yesterday are a testament to its specialness.
I believe a toast to this cool little bird will be in order tonight at the Brightwaters Thursday night watering hole.

This is unfortunate news for such a phenomenal bird – and for birders traveling to see this individual.

Thought I’d make this topic more obvious in the subject.

Sincerely,

Subject: DECEASED - Re: [nysbirds-l] Corn Crake at Cedar Beach (Suffolk Co.)
This is unfortunate news for such a phenomenal bird – and for birders traveling to see this individual.

Thought I’d make this topic more obvious in the subject.

Sincerely,
Chris T-H

Subject: Re:[nysbirds-l] RFI Corn Crake situation
Thanks to all who responded publicly and privately to my earlier request.
Made it down there mid-afternoon, and there were no issues with any law
enforcement whatsoever. Legal parking is very, very close to where the bird
is hanging out, as previously described, so there is no need to park along
the highway itself.

I drove down today at 2pm. Some folks had really nice lenses and

A quick walk around the periphery from about 1:30 to 2:00 revealed, amid the hordes of tourists at the food and other booths, at least two male Yellowthroats (one on the western edge and one amid the ivy opposite the rest rooms) and one Hermit Thrush (also on the western periphery.)

It is illegal to park, walk or stand on any part of the parkway. That being
said many people are doing just that to see the bird. The police only come
by every so often and clear out the people and the cars. If this bird
continues in the area police presence may increase.

Thanks, all, for the answers! Had no idea it was in Nat Geo NA guides. The
“corncrake” vs “crake, corn” in the index was where I was hung up. Should
have tried looking up scientific name in the index.

Thanks again!

Does anyone agree with me when I say this bird looks to be a juvenile?  It doesn't seem to have the gray typical of adults on the breast, throat, and face.  I'm also glad it's not being as secretive as they are supposed to be.  What a great bird.

Hi Brian and all,

Corn Crake is in fact depicted in that book, but on page 110-111, with Quail and Button-quail, confusingly a few pages prior to the Rallids.

It is also depicted in the National Geo Guide, and, interestingly, in the old Peterson guide (and very nicely at that). Its presence in the last is testament to its pattern of more frequent occurrence long ago, prior to its population declines in Europe.

One problem is that it does not appear under "crake" in the index of most
European field guides - it's indexed as Corncrake. But Crex crex should
work.

Hi Brian and all,

Corn Crake is in fact depicted in that book, but on page 110-111, with Quail and Button-quail, confusingly a few pages prior to the Rallids.

It is also depicted in the National Geo Guide, and, interestingly, in the old Peterson guide (and very nicely at that). Its presence in the last is testament to its pattern of more frequent occurrence long ago, prior to its population declines in Europe.

When I was there this morning state troopers were moving birders from the median. Just so everyone understands the situation, there is a 2 lane highway with cars moving very quickly between the median and the crake.

Though cops are clearing parked cars from the highway, are birders allowed to stand nearby to observe the bird? I’m considering an attempt today but wouldn’t bother if my only shot is a “drive-by” look.

Some info:

This remarkable find has been made more remarkable by its sticking to
its original location much to the delight of additional birders. Still
being reported as of this am.

Great Find by Ken & Sue Feustel.

NOTE: there is NO PARKING on the shoulders or medians of the Ocean
Pkwy.

Note also that it is a VERY busy roadway in the am rush-hour, so
police patrol. Please do not engage them if you are asked to move,
just comply. doing so might adversely affect future events...

For those still contemplating an attempt, the map link below may be of
some benefit. Parking is very nearby.

Not seen again but there is so much habitat here. I looked briefly at Field 4 on the other side of the big marsh with no luck. By the way, the original location was outside and east of Field 8, not 7, where the small cedars are.

Cross posting from ebirdnyc. The VA Rail was still on the car at about 8:40 a.m. when Annie Novak who I met there and I arrived. She had a large cloth bag and was kind enough to catch the bird (which was skittish but did not look visibly injured; perhaps stunned) and head up to Wild Bird Fund with it. Not a corn crake but ….. These posts can certainly help so thanks to Ryan Bass too.

This morning at 7:45 am, when exiting Grand Central North at 48th St and Park Ave, I noted a Virginia Rail perched atop a Black Lexus btwn Park/Lex (N. side of street, closer to Park). Although the bird appeared uninjured, it is clearly not in suitable habitat. I'm concerned for the welfare of this bird. Unfortunately, I was running to the office, but I thought to get the word out: should anyone work/live in the area, please check on the well being of this bird and call wildlife rehabber if necessary. Thank you. Best regards, Ryan

Parking is technically illegal along the Ocean Parkway, and in the morning there are many cars traveling to work along it. Many parked cars are bound to eventually cause the police to chase people away, especially during rush hour.

A close suggested parking spot is nearby Overlook Beach, just east of Cedar Beach on the ocean (south side) of the parkway. From there it's a 5-10 minute walk east. Also, although the bird tolerated fast moving cars, it was very skittish if it detected people or cars stopping next to it.

For those not familiar with the area this is about a 15 minute drive east of the Jones Beach water tower, in Suffolk County. Congrats again to the Feustels for a great find and timely post.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] eBird Hotspots: Corn Crake Location (Suffolk Co.)
Here are the following shared locations for the Cedar Beach area where the
Corn Crake reports are coming from:

- Cedar Beach Marina
- Cedar Beach, general area (available within 12 hours)
- Oak Beach Marsh (available within 12 hours)

... there should be no need for a generic "stakeout" marker since there are
hotspots that cover the area. A "stakeout" marker should be used when no
hotspots exist in the area. This avoids the creation of multiple personal
locations.

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.

It was mid-afternoon when I nonchalantly turned the computer on to see what
was happening, and from then, to ~ 4 PM when I *safely* arrived at "The
Spot" on the Ocean Parkway and saw the "Crazy Crake", the Lord was my
co-pilot ! It was a "perfect storm/ not" of a trip, with no traffic
holdups, no accident, no police "pullovers", and finally, with enough
light*, to see the wonderful gift Ken & Sue presented to us !

Cheers,
Bob

* Weather permitting, I plan on being back in the AM to see the bird in
better light, and maybe even get a good photo or two !

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Corn Crake
I studied the Corn Crake from around 3:15-4:00 PM until the skies started to darken and rain. It continued feeding along the shrubline before retreating into the tangles every 5-10 minutes pulling up a worm here and there. A very beautiful bird. Quite the migratory odyssey this individual must be on. Not an easy bird to see anywhere in the world.

A remarkable find.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] From Crane to Crake
My contribution to the photographic record of the Corn Crake can be found at
my web site http://stevewalternature.com/ . Congratulations Ken and Sue on
this spectacular find.



I had a longer trip to get to Cedar Beach than I usually would. I was back
at the Quaker Ridge hawk watch in Greenwich for another 200+ Red-shouldered
Hawk tally. To put that in perspective, the daily high at this site before
this year was 129, and the yearly average was still down at 171 (despite
over 1000 in 2014). I keep seeing them kettle and barrel through in groups
of up to a dozen, yet it's still hard to believe.



And if the day needed more excitement, a group of 3 Sandhill Cranes flew by
to the south of the watch. I posted a picture on the Recent Work page. It's
not a picture I'm proud to show off, but it does say "that really happened".

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Corn Crake - History
Robert DeCandido and I spent some time today tracking down as much of the original historical information on the occurrence of the Corn Crake in our area...primarily NY State Records. They are provided, with citations below.

Here is a link to an adult female Corn Crake photographed while we were banding birds in Israel in 2003: https://www.photo.net/photo/1424996

Historical Info from the period 1880-2012:
=======================================
CORN CRAKE Crex crex. In the shop of Messrs. Lucau & Buck, of Sag Harbor, I found a mounted specimen of this species which I purchased. They bought it about August 15, 1885 while in the flesh, from a farmer residing near Amagansett, Suffolk Co. It was, when shot, on an upland or dry meadow, in company with some Meadow Larks (Sturnella magna). The sex was not ascertained.

Bird Notes from Long Island by William Dutcher
Auk 3 (No. 4): 432-444 (Excerpts) - October-December 1886
===============================================
Crex crex. Corn Crake. -- Since my previous record of this bird on Long Island, I have had a mounted specimen presented to me by Mr. A. A. Fraser, who "bagged the bird, 2 November 1880. It was at the foot of the uplands, where they join the meadows, in heavy cover, with springs running from it."

Auk 5 (2): 177 (April-June 1888) excerpt
BIRD NOTES FROM LONG ISLAND, N. Y.
BY WILLIAM DUTCHER.
================================
12. Corn Crake Crex crex. Capt. Scott gave me the greater portion of the skin of one of these birds, that had been shot by a boy about 1 Nov 1888 while shooting quail. It was secured on a low marshy meadow about three miles west of the point, near the Conklin farm house. This is the third specimen of this species that I have in my collection from Long Island. For previous records see The Auk, Vol. III., p. 435, and Vol. V., p.177. In the Ornithologist and Oologist Vol. XIIL, p. 46, a specimen is recorded from Connecticut. The number of records of this species from the middle Eastern Atlantic Coast would seem to indicate that Crex would soon have to be removed from the list of stragglers and placed among the rare class. William Dutcher

A Winter Trip to Montauk (excerpt)

Forest and Stream 34(11): 206-207 (3 April 1890) excerpt.
===============================
Crex crex in Maine [1896]. The occurrence of Crex crex near Portland, Me., was noted in an editorial paragraph of the 'Ornithologist and Oologist,' Vol. XV, p. 30, as follows: "H. II. Brock reports a specimen of the European Corn Crake (Crex crex) killed by John Whiting in Falmouth, Me., about four miles from Portland. Another was shot at the same time, but was so mutilated that it was thrown away."

I feel that the importance of this capture demands a more detailed statement, especially in view of the fact that the above notice seems to have been often overlooked. The bird is an unquestionable Crex crex in extremely fine plumage and of typical coloration. It not only agrees closely with printed descriptions, hut with the several European specimens with which I have compared it. The date of its capture was 14 October 1889, and the locality the ‘Dyke’ Marsh in Falmouth, where so many other rare waders have been taken. It was shot by Mr. John Whitney, -- not "Whiting." It came into my hands at once, was preserved by myself, and is now in my collection. Great importance should not, of course, be attached to the closing sentence of the paragraph above quoted, which was based on the statements of a gunner not skilled in identifying birds, though undoubtedly truthful. -- HENRY H. BROCK, Portland, Me.

AUK 13(2): 173-174 (April-June 1896)
===========================================================
The Corn Crake in Connecticut [1887]. BY HON. JOHN N. CLARK, SAYBROOK, CONN. In looking over a Check List made from the A. O. U. Code I find the names of fifty-one species or varieties of birds enclosed in brackets, and upon investigation discovered by Rule 3 "that stragglers or accidental visitors not regarded as components of the North American fauna were to be distinguished by having their respective numbers in brackets," so that these fifty-one species are regarded as stragglers or accidental visitors, and every capture of one of them by an ornithologist is regarded as an interesting event to be triumphantly recorded for publication.

But how few such triumphs are there in the records! Probably but a small portion of such captures fall to the lot of the ornithological student. Seventy-five in a hundred of the sportsmen would dress the rare bird for the pot, with the common ones, and discuss its flesh instead of its plumage.

Yet such a triumph has been mine; the first specimen of all that list of stragglers fell into my hands on the 20th of October [1887] last a Corn Crake (Crex crex), a bird about the size and appearance (if not examined too closely) of a Woodcock, aside from the beak, which latter more nearly resembles that of the domestic fowl. Reddish tints predominate, especially on the wings, and a more critical examination reveals the somewhat flattened form peculiar to the Rallidae. It was a male, apparently fully mature in size and plumage, and was found in such a place as one would be likely to look at that season for Woodcock a swamp thicket at the head of a marsh, the source of a small stream winding some two miles through salt meadows to its outlet into Long Island Sound.

Whence came this bird, and whither was it going? Are there others and have they a breeding ground in our county? Questions without solution are only conjecture. It would be interesting to me if someone acquainted with the habits of the species would present them at length. All the information I have been able to gather is comprehended in the brief "accidental on our coast." If a single specimen establishes the status of a species then the List of the fauna of Connecticut is increased by one. [The Corn Crake (Crex pratensis until lately, when Linnaeus's name has been adopted by the A. O. C. nomenclature, and we now have Crex crex), is quite a common bird in England, where it is found in the meadows and low lands where there is water. It is migratory, and arrives there from the European Continent about April or May.

It is of a shy and retiring disposition, and will not fly unless compelled to do so. The nest is constructed of dry grass, on the ground, in meadows, and from seven to ten eggs are laid. Their ground color varies from ecru drab to fawn, and they are spotted and blotched quite heavily with cinnamon and russet. There are also a few spots of purplish-gray. They measure 1.41 x 1.07 and larger, and the spots have a tendency to run lengthwise on the eggs. Specimens of this bird have been taken in Greenland, Long Island, New Jersey, and the Bermudas, and now Judge Clark has added Connecticut to these localities. It therefore has a far better claim to be included in our North American fauna than many other birds who have been admitted on the strength of a single specimen having been taken here. J. P. N.]

Ornithologist and Oologist 13(3): 45-46 (March 1888)
================================
Another Corn Crake Record for Long Island. On 2 November 1963, a Corn Crake, Crex crex, was shot in Orient, Long Island by a pheasant hunter. The bird was shot on the ground at close range with large shot and was badly mutilated but enough of the bird could be preserved for an identification record. The bird, a female, was in a field of young rye 200 yards from salt marshes.

25 Mallaphaga, all one species, were collected from the bird. These lice were determined as Rallicola ertygometrae ertygometrae by K. C. Emerson in the Department of Entomology, Washington, D. C. This apparently is the fourth record of the Corn Crake on Long Island and the fifth for New York State. It is of interest to note that this bird was recorded on the same date, November 2, and that the first record was established for this species on Long Island in 1880, the year of the writer's birth. Ed. note: Although the fifth record for the state, it is the first this century. This decrease of occurrence may be related to the decline of the species in Northern Europe due to the destruction of nests by modern agricultural methods. Roy Latham, Orient, Long Island.

KINGBIRD 14(1): 28-29 (Jan-Mar 1964)
====================================================
ABSTRACT [2012]: A juvenile Corncrake Crex crex was photographed on Fernando de Noronha Island [BRAZIL] on 28 November 2012. The reservoir where the bird was found also held two male Pintails Anas acuta, also photographed. Fernando de Noronha is a known locality for vagrants from the Palearctic and/or Africa, Crex crex being an addition to a growing list.

The Corncrake Crex crex is a strongly migratory rail with a broad Palearctic breeding range including a broad swathe from coastal north-western Europe to Sinkiang in Western China (Taylor 1998). In those countries Corncrakes inhabit tall pastures and meadows, including hay fields, both dry and wet, with a preference for cooler and damper habitats with dense grass and herb cover 20-50 cm high (Taylor 1998). The conversion of such areas, formerly used for extensive grazing and to produce hay, into intensive, mechanised agriculture has led to a serious decline of the species throughout western Europe (BirdLife International 2004).

After the breeding season Corncrakes migrate mostly to eastern Africa (Walther et al. 2012), but there are sparse records covering most of the continent and vagrants have been found in Tibet, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Vietnam and Australia (Bräulich & Rank 1998, Taylor 1998).

A few birds sometimes cross the Atlantic, with several records in the eastern seaboard of North America from Newfoundland, New Scotia, St. Pierre et Miquelon, Maine, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Bermuda and Greenland (AOU 1998). Here we present the first record of Corncrake for Brazil and South America (cf. SACC 2013).

There was a Pennsylvania record form early 2016, a bird rescued from the jaws of a cat but which later succumbed to its injuries. This record does not appear on eBird.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Corn Crake and Black-headed Gull
Well it sure was a good day to be a birder!  Went to photograph the Black-headed Gull at Orchard Beach this early pm and got a 100 or so great shots of it in the lot.  When I got home at about 12:30pm I saw a Corn Crake was spotted on the Island so of course dropped everything and zoomed down there.  Even though there was traffic at the bridge I managed to get down there before the rain and had great looks at it for about 10 minutes!  How exciting!!  Never thought I'd see this bird in the US.  Wow, what a find.  Good job by the finders.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Corn Crake Photos
I have posted four Corn Crake photos to my flickr site. Sue and I were very pleased that so many birders got to see this bird. The rarity of this species is such that, according to Bulls Birds of New York State (1998), the last record was a bird that was shot in a rye field in Orient in 1963. This was the first NYS record in seventy-five years. National Geographics Complete Birds of North America stated that it has been only recorded five times in North America, most recently in 2002. These are dated references, and we are aware of a recent record from Maine, originally identified as a Yellow Rail - there are likely others.

Good Birding!

Subject: RE: [nysbirds-l] Corn Crake at Cedar Beach (Suffolk Co.)
For people unfamiliar with the Jones Beach strip, the following information might be useful.

Parking (and even walking) on the Ocean Parkway is not permitted, although enforcement of these rules varies a great deal.

I suggest parking at the Overlook Beach parking lot on the ocean side, then walking a short distance east along the parkway and crossing at the turn-around labeled "Cedar Beach Marina"

From the west, take the Meadowbrook or the Wantagh south to the Ocean Parkway then head east.

From the east, take the Robert Moses Causeway south to the Ocean Parkway then head west.

A few photos of the Corn Crake are here:

A Corn Crake (this is no joke) is currently feeding on the north shoulder of the Ocean Parkway east of the Cedar Beach marina. The bird is staying close to the shrubline. From the west bound lane line up the Cedar Overlook cell tower to your left. Also, there is a south facing Emergency Stopping Only sign on the north side of the parkway. Sue and I are watching the bird with Shai Mitra and Pat Lindsay. Photos later on my Flickr site.

Hi All,


I briefly saw the Black-headed Gull loafing with Laughing Gulls on the beach. Scanning the Sound, I found all three Scoters in small numbers. There were tons of gulls out there today feeding on schools of fish close to the surface, but I could not find anything terribly rare among them despite lots of careful searching. However, 3 Bonaparte's Gulls were nice to see. Also did some land birding where highlights included a White-eyed Vireo along the trail that runs along the east side of Hunter Island, and where the paved path enters the woods on Hunter, there was a Nashville Warbler.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Seawatch Report Queens Co.
I did an early morning Seawatch in Queens covering Riis Park and Breezy
Point. The seabird flight was sparse and not the steady stream of birds
that I would have liked. Nevertheless, it was enjoyable due to the overcast
and cool conditions.

All 3 Scoter species, small flocks of Common Eiders, several hundred
Northern Gannets and Tree Swallows made up the majority of birds on the
move. Smaller numbers included Red-throated Loons, Double-crested
Cormorants, Laughing Gulls and few Red-breasted Mergansers.

The conditions made it easy to pick out Terns over the Ocean and I ended up
with 17 Forster's and 11 Royal Terns. A few Royal Terns might be moving
between the two sites so I tried to be conservative with my numbers.

A mixed flock of about 110 shorebirds seen from Riis heading west included
1 White-rumped Sandpiper, 15 Purple Sandpipers, 1 Ruddy Turnstone and 27
Dunlins with the rest Sanderlings.

The number of loafing Gulls on the beach was not impressive; one banded
Herring Gull and a 2 CY Lesser Black-backed Gull were my only highlights.

Cheers,

Saturday morning there was an Indigo Bunting on the Sarah Lawrence College
campus in Yonkers. I did not see it, but heard it's distinctive call and
was certain that's what it was, especially since your message confirms they
are lingering. In addition, we had a first for the campus, a fly-over
Red-shouldered Hawk, which also turned out to be part of a larger
phenomenon, a record flight, apparently.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Hudsonian Godwits at Heckscher SP Suffolk Co.
This morning there were were two juvenile Hudsonian Godwits present in
the Field 7 lot, neither of which had any afflictions, meaning there is
at least one other juvenile to add to the total number of godwits
frequenting the lot. (The tumor-afflicted juvenile was not seen while I
was there.) A Pectoral Sandpiper was also present.

The adult Hudwit with the injured leg eventually flew in from the east
with a flock of 28 Black-bellies and some Dunlin, and sat down on a
grassy strip on the west side of the lot. The puddles in the grass on
the east side are no more, and the puddle in the lot itself is fast
disappearing.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] East End Birding (Suffolk Co.) - 11/5
The *Brown Booby* continued at Lake Montauk viewed from Star Island Drive
at 0700, marking 38 days since it arrived. The bird was not on any of the
visible perches when I arrived, but was eventually seen in flight heading
towards South Lake Drive. There may be a chance it will remain for the
Montauk CBC on December 16th...

With the strong ESE winds (around 18 knots, much higher than the forecast)
there was a pronounced seabird flight visible from Camp Hero State Park.
The highlight was two *Black-legged Kittiwakes*, adult and first winter,
that flew west to east under the cliffs soon after I arrived. Otherwise
the diversity was not remarkable, though the sheer number of birds moving
by, especially Northern Gannets and Laughing Gulls, was notable.

Continuing west, I made many stops between Deep Hollow Ranch and Mecox
Inlet yet failed to find any noteworthy species. As often seems to be the
case all the interesting birds seemed to be concentrated in one spot. An
hour spent birding the marsh and brushes in the area of Triton Lane off
Dune Road produced an *acadius *Nelson's Sparrow, an American Bittern, a
flyby Pectoral Sandpiper, and two Ipswich Sparrows.

I ended the day at Heckscher State Park, where the three Hudsonian Godwits
remained at the heavily depleted pools near Field 7. Soon after arriving,
a Cooper's Hawk flew by and flushed the birds east and out of sight. Among
the Black-bellied Plovers on the lawn in front of the closed parking area
was the continuing American Golden Plover. If the godwits do not return to
the now empty pools near Field 7 it may be worth checking the east marina
at Timber Point County Park, where there was a significant concentration of
Black-bellied Plovers, Dunlin, and Greater Yellowlegs on a sandbar
southeast of the marina.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Black Dirt eagles
Mark French and I hit the Black Dirt Region yesterday, as it's one of our
favorite places to bird and take in the landscape. From one of the vantage
points along the Pulaski Highway, we observed 2 GOLDEN EAGLES, see eBird
notes pasted below. At a different vantage point, we observed a juvenile
BALD EAGLE carrying a Gray Squirrel! Surprisingly for the date, no
Rough-legged Hawks or Short-eared Owls were observed...the former is
shocking considering the fact that Cape May had four already...I was
expecting one or two and there are usually a few Short-eareds present up
there by late October with decent numbers by mid-November. Harrier numbers
were low throughout the area, with five being the peak count at any one
location.

"I initially spotted a large, dark eagle soaring with a group of TUVU.
After putting the scope on it, I was able to see the white tail base and
golden hackle but no white was apparent in the underwing. The bird peeled
off to the right joining another Golden, with similar sub-adult plumage
characteristics. The Wallkill River corridor is apparently an important
migratory route for the species, as this is the fourth time I've observed
migrants (once in December and twice in late February)."

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Long Island - Gulling and Shorebirding
Gulling along the barrier beaches on Long Island was not as productive as I thought it would be with only 5 Lesser Black-backed Gulls in total. Even the crisp Juvenile Herring Gulls all seemed to have moved on. Only a few seen today.

I decided then to turn my attention to Shorebirds, after I realized I might have a chance at breaking double digits. No small feat in November.

I ended up with 15 species of Shorebirds; far better than many of those grueling summer days, spent schlepping the East Pond at Jamaica Bay.

The Shorebird highlights included STILT SANDPIPER (1) at Jones Beach in the swale. The reported Baird's Sandpiper from that location is in fact a White-rumped Sandpiper and robbed me of number 16.

PECTORAL SANDPIPER, HUDSONIAN GODWIT (s), LONG-BILLED DOWITCHER and LESSER YELLOWLEGS all from "puddle birding" at Heckscher State Park. That location also had 2 juvenile White-rumped Sandpipers who by now have lost some of their sheen. I spent most of my afternoon there, listening for and watching the movement of birds around me. Listening paid off as I picked up the Lesser Yellowlegs and the Long-billed Dowitcher, neither of which stuck around for too long.

Birds seemed at Heckscher seemed a bit more jumpy than I am accustomed to and I am not sure if that was all about the Peregrine or other factors in play.

I doubled back at Jones Beach West End as light faded hoping to pad my Lesser Black-backed numbers but that was a bust. Perhaps, they were all scared off by all the holiday monstrosities that now line the roads in West End.

Cheers,

This afternoon, Laura Stenzler and Ton Schat directed attention to a dark ibis they found north of Armitage Rd, west of rt 38 north of Monezuma. I was birding nearby, and headed right over. I found the bird, but unfortunately the rain started in earnest right then, and the lighting was poor. Also the bird was very actively foraging in the far north end of the east-most section of flooded farm fields and did not give good looks.


White-faced and Glossy ibis are about equally likely to occur here. The bird looked like a non-breeding-plumaged adult, with no white on the face to help with ID (broad white in White-faced, thin white stripes in Glossy). It was way too far away, and the light was way too dim for me to be able to see if there was any red in the face or not. I could not tell which species it was.


Unless someone else gets better looks or better photos, I have to put it down as "Plegadis sp." or "Glossy/White-faced Ibis."

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Morning Seawatch, Robert Moses
A forecast of mild overnight easterlies shifting to the southeast at dawn
prompted me to plan a morning seawatch today at Robert Moses Field 2. I was
joined by a number of other birders, and we were treated to a reasonably
birdy scene. Scoters were moving in numbers from daybreak up until just
before 9 AM, with several thousand Black Scoters, a few dozen White-wings,
and just six Surfs observed. The gannet show was also impressive, though it
was difficult to accurately gauge numbers since the birds were milling
about and feeding actively. It's safe to say that conservative counts were
in the high hundreds. Two Great Shearwaters were a nice surprise, and they
periodically appeared throughout the morning in association with some
fishing boats. No jaegers this time, and surprisingly few foraging or flyby
gulls as well. A few other sea ducks were tallied, and I observed lingering
Lesser Black-backed Gulls loafing at Robert Moses and Jones Beach, both
adults.

Cheers!

One HUGO (The one with two working legs and no tumors) made an appearance at field 7 about 20 minutes ago. It flushed when a peregrine flew by, but didn't seem to go far. No golden plover or LBDO yet. But Pectoral, GRYE, Dunlin, and BBPL.

Good birding,

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Pelham Bay Gull / Red-shouldered Hawks
On my way to the hawk watch at Greenwich Audubon Center, I stopped off at
Pelham Bay Park this morning to look for the Black-headed Gull. I quickly
spotted a noticeably smaller gull among a few Ring-bills in the southwest
corner of the parking lot. I was unaware of the age of the reported
Black-headed, so I assumed this first winter bird was it. But while looking
at it and getting a few photographs, it didn't look right for a Black-headed
(and I later found out that the Black-headed is an adult). What this bird
had was a suggestion of a hood, which along with its smaller size, put
thoughts of Franklin's in my mind. But the hood was not pronounced enough
and the mantle color was too light. The bill on this bird is darkish with
some reddish on the lower mandible (so wrong for Ring-billed of any age).
The legs are not black, as would be expected in young Franklin's or
Laughing, but too dark for Black-headed or Ring-billed. My guess is that
this is indeed a hybrid, but not Laughing x Ring-billed. The smaller size of
the bird and it head shape suggest to me that one of the parents could be a
Black-headed. But your guess is as good as mine. A couple of pictures have
been posted at my web site http://stevewalternature.com/ (click the Birds
tab, then Recent Work).



Then it was off to the hawk watch, which turned out to be a very good move.
It was an amazing day for November. The final tally at Quaker Ridge
(Greenwich) was 577, headlined by 260 Red-shouldered Hawks. That is an
all-time daily record for the northeast. Yea, I know it's Connecticut, but
those birds are just a couple of minutes away from entering New York.
Chestnut Ridge (Butler Sanctuary), a few files to the north and in New York,
tallied 167 Red-shoulders. The moral here is that there's actually a good
news story being told by migration watching. There has been quite in
increase in Red-shouldered Hawks breeding in the northeast last few years.
One would not have thought to do this as recently as five years ago, but you
can now plan your hawk watching around Red-shouldered Hawks. Today bore that
out with an epic day.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Sands Point Preserve & nearby area; Bald Eagle, American Pipit, etc
Finally, on October 35th, it felt like fall this morning in the Sands Point Preserve. It was about 44 degrees at 8AM and their was quite a bit of migratory movement. I didn’t see anything outstanding but did pick up some fall birds that I had missed up to this point.
There was a big push of Dark-eyed Junco and American Robin, about 125+ juncos and 450+ robins. A Field Sparrow and a Fox Sparrow were the best examples of sparrows. 3 Winter Wren and a Blue-headed Vireo were also found. About 25 Golden-crowned Kinglets but only 3 or so Ruby-crowned.
A small Merlin and a small Peregrine Falcon were driving the robins and others crazy. Overhead, there were small flocks of true migratory Canada Geese way, way up there. Also, I found a flock of 10 Black Ducks heading north very high up; not used to seeing them way up there.
A few White-winged Scoters, 3 Red-breasted Mergansers, 1 each of Red-throated and Common Loon on LI Sound. Also, 3 or 4 Common Loons migrating overhead.

After, I walked down to Prospect Point (west of the preserve) where I found an immature Bald Eagle fairly high up and 8 American Pipits on the beach.

Later, at my mother’s house on Manhasset Bay (Port Washington; Nassau), I found a single Forster’s Tern; a little late for the north shore.

Subject: Re: [nysbirds-l] Black-headed Gull Pelham Bay Park Bronx
Posting again since the bird was flushed by off leashed dogs and went missing for a bit. I relocated it in the Lagoon. It has since frequented the parking lot but keeps moving around due to the increased weekend vehicular traffic. Last observed sleeping in the Orchard Beach parking lot.

Also of note for the Bronx. I had a sitting Bonaparte's Gull on the beach earlier. Usually, the few I have seen here were all flybys.

Additionally, Steve Walter showed me a photo of a Gull he photographed in the lot this AM. From the camera screen this bird looked like something between a 1 CY Ring-billed and Laughing Gull. I did not spend any length of time on studying the photo but imagine if it turns out to be a Franklin's Gull. I expect Steve will review his photos and provide an update later.

I kept an eye out for Steve's bird but never connected with it. Birders twitching the Black-headed Gull or just in the area should keep a lookout for Steve's bird.

Cheers,

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Cattle Egrets - Wellsville, Allegany County
There have been several Cattle Egret reports popping up in New York and
Ontario the past few days. Besides the three birds seen in Albion in Orleans
County yesterday, a remarkable 20 individuals were found in ball fields in
Wellsville, Allegany County. This checklist has a photo of only one bird but
the observer sent me photos, taken by another birder, that show 14
individuals in one frame: http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S40286609



This is a record count, by far, for the Buffalo Region and I wonder if there
have been higher counts elsewhere in New York, away from coastal areas
(where I know there have been higher counts). And how many more are out
there, waiting to be found?



Good birding!

Subject: [nysbirds-l] NYS eBird Hotspots: State, Counties & Locations Updated (Nov/'17)
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.

** NEW: 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. There haven't been
any mentions so far on the usefulness of these links.

*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 792 pages representing a total of 1,642 out of 5,916 hotspots (27.8%).
Updates involve # of species and color codings based on species # along
with updated 2017 periods on the bar chart tables displaying the Current
Month: Nov./2017, Prior Month: Oct./2017 and the current two month period
Oct.-Nov./2017 along with the current 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 at least the Top 10 locations and include
Albany, Bronx, Broome, Chautauqua, Delaware, Dutchess, Essex, Genesee,
Hamilton, Jefferson, Oneida, Onondaga, Ontario, Rockland, St. Lawrence,
Saratoga, Sullivan, Ulster & Wayne with Putnam County currently having all
shared locations linked to wikipages. Essex and Rockland are newly added
since last month's update.

An alphabetical list of all hotspots (5,916) 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 hotspots
for the county. 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 (480 spp.)' or 'Lewis County (222 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. Ashland Flats Wildlife Management Area in Jefferson
County with its 3 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'.

BEGIN TAPE

Greetings. This is the New York Rare Bird Alert for Friday, November 3rd
2017 at 7pm. The highlights of today's tape are BROWN BOOBY, LECONTE'S
SPARROW, BLACK-HEADED GULL, MANX SHEARWATER, GREATER WHITE-FRONTED GOOSE,
EURASIAN WIGEON, HUDSONIAN GODWIT, BAIRD'S SANDPIPER, RAZORBILL,
YELLOW-THROATED WARBLER, CLAY-COLORED SPARROW and DICKCISSEL.

The adult BROWN BOOBY still present on Lake Montauk last Sunday seen
roosting on green buoy #11 as viewed by looking south from the Star Island
entrance road off West Lake Drive. Its previously favored roosting sites,
the tall masts of sailboats including the Maui, have apparently moved on
and with again no reports since Sunday we wonder if the BOOBY has also
moved on. Besides the Star Island causeway another observation point with a
good vista of the lake is at the end of South Lake Drive. Please post
updates.

A great find this week was the LECONTE'S SPARROW found Saturday morning at
Turtle Cove in Pelham Bay Park in the Bronx. Word got out early enough that
many birders were at least able to glimpse the LECONTE'S during the day.
Like two LECONTE'S along the Connecticut coast the week before this bird
was not seen after the initial day. Nevertheless, Pelham Bay did also
produce a variety of nice birds this week including an adult BLACK-HEADED
GULL roosting in the Orchard Beach parking lot Thursday and today. This
possibly the same returning bird that has recently wintered around Five
Islands Park in New Rochelle. Also seen Thursday at Pelham Bay were 2
ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLERS, VESPER SPARROW and a DICKCISSEL and like in many
saltmarshes regionally a few NELSON'S SPARROWS remain around Turtle [Cove].

At Heckscher State Park on Long Island two parking lots containing large
puddles have been attracting a nice variety of shorebirds especially lot 7.
Thursday and today up to 3 HUDSONIAN GODWITS have been visiting the lot 7
puddles though all 3 including one with 2 unfortunate tumors and another
with wing and leg injuries are not there all the time. However this puddle
during the week has also produced up to 3 AMERICAN GOLDEN-PLOVERS, a
LONG-BILLED DOWITCHER and PECTORAL, WHITE-RUMPED and SEMIPALMATED
SANDPIPERS with a WILSON'S SNIPE at the lot 6 puddle on Monday.

Another notable shorebird was a BAIRD'S SANDPIPER reported today with
Dunlin in the swale at Jones Beach West End.

A seawatch off East Hampton in the storm Sunday produced 2 RAZORBILLS and a
CORY'S SHEARWATER. Further west at Robert Moses State Park Sunday there was
a large sea duck flight with 17 thousand scoters estimated, mostly BLACKS
and the terns offshore attracted 3 PARASITIC JAEGERS while later in the
afternoon a MANX SHEARWATER also went by.

One of the high counts of LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULLS included 26 Sunday at
Moses Park field 5. The EURASIAN WIGEON was still on Swan Lake in Patchogue
last weekend and a GREATER WHITE-FRONTED GOOSE was found today in
Westchester County at the Stone Barns Center off Bedford Road north of
Pocantico Hills.

An AMERICAN BITTERN was at the Marine Park Salt Marsh Nature Center last
Saturday and 2 were seen Wednesday at Gilgo.

In Central Park a nice Fall record was the YELLOW-THROATED WARBLER found
Saturday north of the Ramble and reported to Monday. A HOODED WARBLER was
still in Central Saturday and a CLAY-COLORED SPARROW appeared at the north
end at the Great Hill today. ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLERS, generally on the late
side, are now popping up in various locations along with some tardy
migrants and as a note CAVE SWALLOWS have recently been seen in northern
New York and along the Connecticut coast.

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] Hudsonian Godwits at Heckscher State Park (Suffolk Co.)

The tumors could be a result of any number of causes. One possibility
is parasites. Gunnar Hoy and I collected a warbler in Salta, northern
Argentina, in the 1960's that had a large tumor (which is why it was
collected) on it's throat; similar to those in your photos. A
necropsy revealed a parasite common in House Sparrows, but previously
unknown in other species outside of North America. The results were
published in a major parasitology journal.

Subject: RE: [nysbirds-l] Hudsonian Godwits at Heckscher State Park (Suffolk Co.)
All three Hudsonian Godwits were present at the Field 7 pools this afternoon (Friday ca. 2:00 pm), along with two American Golden-Plovers and a Long-billed Dowitcher.

The godwit with the injured right leg is an adult, and it also has gruesome injuries on its right wing. The other two are juvs, one of which has large tumors on its head and on its left leg.

The injured bird looks like it might have flown into a wire, or something like that. The tumors remind me of similar growths we see on shorebirds from time to time, especially on individuals that over-summer on Long Island. I've never learned what causes these tumors, so if anyone has any insights, they would be much appreciated.

Accounts of tumor-afflicted shorebirds on LI:

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Hudsonian Godwits at Heckscher State Park (Suffolk Co.)

Three Hudsonian Godwits made an appearance at the Field 7 pools this morning. I am unsure who found them originally, but they were probably present as early as 9;00AM. The three godwits were a beaten and battered bunch, with one bird having a sizable tumor on his head and another on his leg. A second bird had a bad leg that he could barely walk on, choosing to sit down in the parking lot when he was not feeding. I was originally notified of the birds presence while at West End when a photographer said that he had seen a "Long-billed Dowitcher with tumors on his body. Having seen that species a few times at Heckscher this Fall I did not rush off. Thankfully, a call from Doug Futuyma alerting me to the godwits presence (thanks Doug!) found me watching the waterfowl at the Field 6 picnic area puddle and a quick drive over to Field 7 produced the three godwits. Field 7 was very active, with cars coming and going frequently. In a short time two of the godwits flew off heading west, while the bird with the bad leg stayed.

Also present were a continuing Lesser Yellowlegs (1, Field 6 picnic area), Long-billed Dowitcher (1), American Golden Plover(2), and a late juvenile Semipalmated Sandpiper. I will post a few photos of the godwits later on my flick site.

Cheers,

Hi All,


The Black-headed Gull found this morning by Deborah and Bob was seen again on the Orchard Beach parking lot around 4:30 pm. Hopefully it will stick around. Also of note, near the NW corner of the lot, a Dickcissel was briefly seen.

Since Debbie and Bob posted a list of what they saw I won't do a whole list just to say I saw most of what they saw except the gull and a few others, plus some not on their list.  I also had an Orange-crowned Warbler (maybe the same one) near where the entrance trail into the woods is in the northwestern corner of the lot by the fishing access path, where the poplars are.  Had a Cooper's Hawk over Turtle Cove.  The Dunlin and Laughing Gulls were still in the puddle in the lot when I left and the yellowlegs were in the small cove to the right of Hunter Island.  At Bartow-Pell I had two Field and one Chipping Sparrow in with all the Songs next to the mansion.  Saw the Osprey catch some kind of long narrow fish.  Of course I missed the Nelson's Sparrows again at both the cove and at Bartow-Pell.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Heckscher SP
Joe Giunta & I (Sy Schiff) reacted to a call and returned to Heckscher after yesterday’s visit arriving about !:30. The HUDSONIAN GODWIT was in the puddle with a LONG-BILLED DOWITCHER and DUNLIN in a neat grouping. And they immediately flew off. The Godwit circled and landed close to where we were parked. And then it flew off towards Field #6. Almost all the remaining shorebirds flew off with it. Staying, were a few Greater Yellowlegs, Dunlin and a pair of SEMIPALMATED SANDPIPERS. The latter were carefully checked for Western Sandpiper, more common at this late date.

At Field #6, there were both GREATER and LESSER YELLOWLEGS, and KILLDEER. Ducks included MALLARD, BLACK, female PINTAIL, GREEN AND BLUE-WINGED TEAL. We returned to Field #7 on the way home and the Godwit had again returned. Patience required.

I am not sure if this was reported as yet to the list serves. Robert DeCandido and Deborah Allen found a Black-headed Gull this AM at Pelham Bay. I think was near the Lagoon area.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Hudsonian Godwits at Heckscher State Park (Suffolk Co.)
Three Hudsonian Godwits made an appearance at the Field 7 pools this morning. I am unsure who found them originally, but they were probably present as early as 9;00AM. The three godwits were a beaten and battered bunch, with one bird having a sizable tumor on his head and another on his leg. A second bird had a bad leg that he could barely walk on, choosing to sit down in the parking lot when he was not feeding. I was originally notified of the birds presence while at West End when a photographer said that he had seen a "Long-billed Dowitcher with tumors on his body. Having seen that species a few times at Heckscher this Fall I did not rush off. Thankfully, a call from Doug Futuyma alerting me to the godwits presence (thanks Doug!) found me watching the waterfowl at the Field 6 picnic area puddle and a quick drive over to Field 7 produced the three godwits. Field 7 was very active, with cars coming and going frequently. In a short time two of the godwits flew off heading west, while the bird with the bad leg stayed.

Also present were a continuing Lesser Yellowlegs (1, Field 6 picnic area), Long-billed Dowitcher (1), American Golden Plover(2), and a late juvenile Semipalmated Sandpiper. I will post a few photos of the godwits later on my flick site.

Cheers,

From: Steve Walter <swalter15...>
Subject: [nysbirds-l] Leucistic Common Grackle
It's that time of year when the great flock descends upon my neighborhood in
Queens. When I was driving back to the house, the Common Grackle flock was
conveniently around the 76th Ave. parking lot in Alley Pond Park. So why not
look them over just in case there might be something with a yellow head
mixed in? No such look of course, but I did come across a leucistic one at
the edge of the flock, where I could get pictures. I can't help but wonder
if it's the same one that I saw while doing the local CBC a few years ago. I
never did photograph that one, as the weather was darker that day than
today, so I hadn't even taken a camera out. But now I do have pictures of a
leucistic Common Grackle. If you're interested in seeing what that looks
like (leucistic birds are interesting to some - there's even an article in
the last Birding magazine), I posted a picture at my web site
http://stevewalternature.com/ (click the Birds tab, then Recent Work).



Since it's not a count day, I didn't make an effort to do that. 3000 is
often the estimate I go with. And believe it or not, they're not an
automatic for the count. They roam around, usually all together, and not
necessarily in covered habitats. But for today, they were quite a sight
spread across the relatively undisturbed ball fields. In the process of
taking that in, I came across a group of 7 American Pipits. Pipits here are
not unprecedented, but it's still cool to see grassland birds touching down
in a suburban neighborhood. Also present were about 25 Chipping Sparrows.
They do nest here. Since I don't often bird on the ball fields, I don't know
if these are migrants or they have been here all along. I bring this up
because it's been such a terrible sparrow migration so far. A big question
in my mind is whether it's been the wind patterns affecting the visible
migration or they are just late this year.
