Subject: [nysbirds-l] Central Park North End: Lark Sparrow
Malcolm Morris found a Lark Sparrow today around 2:30pm in the North Meadow near ball field 5. It was more recently seen near the hand ball courts, in the same area where we had the Harris’s Sparrow last year. A few Vesper Sparrows remain in the area (first reported yesterday by Debbie Becker).

The closest park entrance for the Lark Sparrow is CPW and 100th St

NB — these are second-hand reports; I’ve not been in the park today but may head over later.

Here is a link to the event: http://www.movingimage.us/programs/2019/10/25/detail/birds-eye-view-the-films-of-mikael-kristersson/ <http://www.movingimage.us/programs/2019/10/25/detail/birds-eye-view-the-films-of-mikael-kristersson/>

The third atlas will take place from 2020-2025 and involve thousands of volunteers from across the state. This talk will cover the history of the atlas, the importance of atlas data, and how you can get involved. Learn how the third atlas will differ from previous atlases, including how we will be using eBird for data entry. EBird will make it easier to track progress and allow anyone to enter data anywhere. Atlasing is a great excuse to explore new areas and provides an intimate look into the daily lives of birds. Whether you are a beginner or advanced birder, this unique opportunity will strengthen your birdwatching skills while contributing valuable data to a large conservation-oriented project.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Eurasian Wigeon at Jamaica Bay
A drake Eurasian Wigeon was among the first birds I saw as I arrived at the
south end of the East Pond this morning. The water is getting high again,
allowing ducks to come close. But they all quickly moved away with me there,
even before I could get to the edge of the pond. Shorebirds at the south end
stayed in sight and included about 45 Greater Yellowlegs, 8 Lesser
Yellowlegs, and 5 Long-billed Dowitchers. The dowitchers could conceivably
stay for the winter, if they don't get flooded out of one of the too few
suitable habitats around here. I mentioned this to a ranger, and he said he
would pass along the idea of continuing to manage it beyond the usual
seasonal time frame. We'll see.



Also at Jamaica Bay today were a Ferruginous Hawk, Steppe Eagle, and Eagle
Owl. For real. Raptorama.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Central Park N End: Yellow-breasted Chat
Had a Yellow-breasted Chat at the S End of the Great Hill, just beyond the S Blowdown Meadow fence, at 11:20 am. Tom Perlman saw it a few min later in the bushes west of the Balancing Rock. Seems very skulky and is staying low, so likely still around.

Also of note: Gray-cheeked Thrush next to two Hermits in the crabapple tree next to the Balancing Rock right now.

The closest Park entrance is CPW at 103rd St.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Marine Nature Study Area
First really cold day. A change for land birds. The most interesting was a WHITE-EYED VIREO that allowed for a quick photo. Other first of the season at this place were RUBY and GOLDEN-CROWNED KINGLETS. A HERMIT THRUSH continues. Lots of Yellow-rumped Warblers and a dozen Swamp Sparrows along the trails.
The marshes had Both Yellowlegs, both Egrets, a Great Blue Heron, a flyover Black-crowned Night-Heron and little else. The resident Belted Kingfisher was reported. Brant are in and Cormorants continue to fly over.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Say’s Phoebe, morning flight - Jones Beach, Nassau County
An impressive flight following last night’s NW winds included a flyby observation of Say’s Phoebe near the Jones Beach Coast Guard Station boat basin this morning. I cannot say whether the bird continued on or put down somewhere nearby; I followed up its flight and spent some time searching but could not refind it. Notes from the field for this fleeting encounter are included in my eBird checklist. Other birds of interest included Clay-colored Sparrow, Dickcissel, Red-headed Woodpecker, and over 1,000 Yellow-rumps. Marbled Godwits and Caspian Terns continue on the spit.

[~BEGIN RBA TAPE~]

Greetings! This is the New York Rare Bird Alert for Friday, October 18,
2019 at 9:00 pm.

The highlights of today’s tape are VARIED THRUSH, BROWN PELICAN, AMERICAN
WHITE PELICAN, WESTERN KINGBIRD, POMARINE JAEGER, AMERICAN AVOCET, MARBLED
GODWIT, BLACK-LEGGED KITTIWAKE, CLAY-COLORED and LARK SPARROWS, BLUE
GROSBEAK, DICKCISSEL and more.

Another week of less than ideal conditions did today provide a nice
surprise when a male VARIED THRUSH was spotted at the Alley Pond
Environmental Center in Queens. The bird, feeding with American Robins,
was seen briefly but disappeared along the trail that goes south from the
parking lot along the boardwalk that leads to the observation platform.
The entrance to APEC is off Northern Boulevard just east of the Cross
Island Parkway.

An interesting incursion of BROWN PELICANS last Sunday included 15 seen
moving east past Staten Island’s Huguenot Avenue Beach in the afternoon,
after 3 were seen earlier off Franklin D. Roosevelt Beach in Ocean Breeze.
Other Sunday sightings featured 1 off Fort Tilden, 3 off Brooklyn’s Coney
Island Beach and 1 going west by Jones Beach West End. Monday provided 1
further east off Dune Road east of Triton Lane followed Tuesday by 1 moving
by Mecox Bay.

There was also a report of an AMERICAN WHITE PELICAN visiting Jamaica Bay
Wildlife Refuge’s West Pond for a while on Wednesday.

A WESTERN KINGBIRD found last Sunday at West Meadow Beach in Stony Brook
was not reported there after Tuesday.

A sea watch off Riis Park last Wednesday recorded a POMARINE JAEGER along
with 2 PARASITIC and 2 unidentified JAEGERS as well as an immature
BLACK-LEGGED KITTIWAKE.

The 3 AMERICAN AVOCETS on Jamaica Bay’s East Pond recently were down to 2
by Thursday, when 4 LONG-BILLED DOWITCHERS were also reported there; STILT
and PECTORAL SANDPIPERS were also noted there last weekend.

Three or four MARBLED GODWITS continue to be seen on the island off the
Coast Guard Station at Jones Beach West End through today, and a couple of
CASPIAN TERNS visited there in mid-week.

A female KING EIDER was still around Orient Point last Saturday, when an
AMERICAN BITTERN was spotted at the Oceanside Marine Nature Study Area.

At Jones Beach West End a CLAY-COLORED SPARROW was around the hedgerow by
the Coast Guard Station from Monday through today, when a second was also
located nearby.

The Prospect Park LARK SPARROW was last reported last Saturday, when
another was seen at an East Hampton farm.

A GRASSHOPPER SPARROW was found in Central Park today at the Oven, and a
VESPER SPARROW was located Tuesday at the recently opened Shirley Chisholm
State Park, the former landfill reached from the southern end of
Pennsylvania Avenue in Brooklyn. The extensive grasslands there could prove
to be very interesting.

NELSON’S SPARROWS are now very widespread in salt marshes locally,
including such locations as Plumb Beach, the Oceanside Marine Nature Study
Area and Pelham Bay Park.

YELLOW-BREASTED CHATS were noted at Prospect Park Sunday, Montauk Point
Monday, and Robert Moses State Park today.

Among the decreasing variety of WARBLERS was a CONNECTICUT identified
during the morning flight at Robert Moses State Park last Sunday, and a
HOODED male was at Battery Park on Tuesday. Now is a decent time to look
for ORANGE CROWNED WARBLERS.

BLUE GROSBEAKS this week included singles at Captree State Park Sunday,
Jones Beach West End Tuesday, and Greenwood Cemetery in Brooklyn today.

A few DICKCISSELS included Sunday sightings from Fort Tilden to Robert
Moses State Park and Montauk Point and up to Croton Point, with another at
Jones Beach West End Monday.

Large numbers of Brant began arriving today

To phone in reports please 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.

Still fairly breezy. Not much of note other than a score of Yellow-rumped Warblers in the dunes. The highlight is the first flocks of BRANT have arrived for the winter, about 150 flying by in the channel and 30 feeding in the cove to Bedell Creek.

Thanks for the report Angus

Mr. Williams was certainly quite detailed and excited about his find (rightfully so) but perhaps a wee bit hyperbolic:

“My heart jumped”; “I was . . . freaking out” ; “My heart just about leapt out of my chest”; “My fingers went slightly tingly”; “***Mega”

Ossining (Not coastal so not expecting yellow-green vireo).
P.s. As to birds, Croton Point did have a Dickcissel on Sunday (I saw) and a Nelson’s sparrow last week (I didn’t)

-CAUTION: EXTERNAL EMAIL


On 15 Oct 2019, a YELLOW-GREEN VIREO was trapped twice at the Lighthouse on Monomoy Island, Cape Cod.

There are very few prior records from the East Coast, although one was trapped on 5 Sep 2011 at Plum Island MA. There is also a Bermuda record from 6 Oct 1992. There are at least two records from Cape May, New Jersey, one from 26 Sep 2018 and the other 23 May 2019.

Definitely something we should be watching for in coastal New York, both in the spring (May) and in the fall (Sep/Oct)!

Here is a photo of the latest bird including a nice comparison to Red-eyed Vireo by the Monomoy Bird Observatory banding team

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Jones Beach Clay-colored, Blue Grosbeak
There was a Clay-colored Sparrow at Jones Beach today, around the hedgerows
near the Coast Guard station. It sounds like it may have been seen Monday,
as well, but doesn't seem to be seen for long. Fortunately, I took long
range pictures - which, at least, don't take off before the ID can be
verified. I think Ed Becher was one of the previous observers. He was
definitely one of the observers today - being the one that spotted it - of a
young / female type Blue Grosbeak on the south side of the entrance road to
the parking lot.



Birds of note on the sand spit were a juvenile Caspian Tern and its parent,
as well as at least three continuing Marbled Godwits.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Hooded Warbler in the Battery (NYC)
I led my weekly bird walk in the Battery, at the southern tip of Manhattan, this morning. We had 26 species, including a pair of American Kestrel, a couple of Eastern Towhees, a lingering Magnolia Warbler, and several Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers.

The undoubted highlight however was a bright male Hooded Warbler flitting about between the beehive area and the Biergarten at the SW corner of the park. He was quite cooperative, hopping on the ground and chipping loudly.

Good late fall birding,

Gabriel Willow

Subject: [nysbirds-l] "Invasion of the Tree Snatchers" - a Queens County Bird Club presentation this Weds. Oct. 16
The Queens County Bird Club will be meeting at the Alley Pond Environmental Center, 228-06 Northern Blvd, Douglaston, NY 11362 >Map of location< <http://goo.gl/8cnmjT> at 8:00 pm this Wednesday, October 16, 2019. Free admission. Refreshments will be served starting 7:30pm.

Our guest speaker will be Jason Stein, presenting “Invasion of the Tree Snatchers”.
Non-native vines such as bittersweet and porcelainberry are pulling down, strangling, and covering over young trees throughout our region, turning our parks into "vinelands" instead of healthy forests.
Jason Stein is an Advanced Volunteer Coordinator for NYC Parks "Super Stewards" program. Find out how to identify invasive vines and how to receive training to become certified to combat invasive vines in your favorite park.

Hope to see you Wednesday!

Subject: [nysbirds-l] 6th Annual Queens County Bird Club Big Sit results
Yesterday we tallied 83 species at Fort Tilden's Battery Harris Platform,
our second best year ever. New additions to our cumulative list were Snow
Goose, Field Sparrow, Cape May Warbler, Black-and-white Warbler, Scarlet
Tanager, Brown Pelican, and Common Nighthawk.

Other highlights included a great dolphin show all morning, Humpback Whale
spouts, a flyover Dickcissel, a hooting Great Horned Owl at both dawn and
dusk, two fresh Black Swallowtails that spent most of the afternoon around
the platform, and three Eastern Meadowlarks.

We didn't miss any species that we had never missed: our biggest miss was
Brant, which we had only missed one previous year, followed by Chimney
Swift and White-breasted Nuthatch, which are now batting .500.

We had a great crowd of birders throughout the day and I don't think we
missed much. Considering the relatively weak winds out of the
northwest that died by noon and the lack of a finch flight this year I
think we did really well. Thanks to everyone who came out to find some
birds and especially to those who brought snacks. (We might have had too
many snacks this year!)

Around 11AM this morning, a raucous flock of 9 Common Raven came in,
circling and dog-fighting just over Hempstead House before moving off the
preserve property to the west.

This is the most I have seen on Long Island.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Marin Nature Study Area, Oceanside
Full moon high tide. The marsh was completely flooded, but the water subsided rather quickly so we could move out on the path. There were about 3 dozen Yellowlegs scattered in groups with about 20% Lesser. Both Egrets and 2 Great Blue Herons were foraging. Nice to have long legs.
Not much around due to the flood, but we picked up several marsh birds to the east of the pond. They moved to the vegetation and higher ground next to the path. Every thing was still under water in this area. While we were trying to get better looks, an AMERICAN BITTERN flew by. The 3 marsh birds, up close for a change, turned out to be a MARSH WREN, a SALTMARSH SPARROW and a NELSON’S SPARROW, all looking for dryer ground.

BEGIN TAPE

Greetings. This is the New York Rare Bird Alert for Friday, October 11th
2019 at 9pm. The highlights of today's tape are SEDGE WREN, WESTERN
KINGBIRD, AMERICAN AVOCET, HUDSONIAN GODWIT, MARBLED GODWIT, WILSON'S
PHALAROPE, KING EIDER, PARASITIC JAEGER, PROTHONOTARY WARBLER, CONNECTICUT
WARBLER, YELLOW-BREASTED CHAT, DICKCISSEL, BLUE GROSBEAK, LARK SPARROW and
CLAY-COLORED SPARROW.

A nice variety of birds this week, despite the unfavorable weather, was
highlighted by a SEDGE WREN found a photographed at Pelham Bay Park last
Saturday afternoon. Another unusual migrant found today on Staten Island
was a WESTERN KINGBIRD spotted at Brookfield Park which is just north of
Arthur Kill Road where it intersects with Brookfield Avenue.

The storm rolling through our area Tuesday into Wednesday provided a nice
fallout of HUDSONIAN GODWITS at Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge with a maximum
of 31 counted Wednesday morning at the south end of the East Pond. They
were joined by a MARBLED GODWIT as well but unfortunately none of the
godwits lingered there beyond Wednesday. However 3 AMERICAN AVOCETS have
continued around the north end of the East Pond at least to yesterday and
among the other shorebirds reported there this week have been 2 WILSON'S
PHALAROPES Thursday as well as a small number of LONG-BILLED DOWITCHERS and
PECTORAL, STILT and WHITE-RUMPED SANDPIPERS. Unfortunately the water level
on the pond remains much higher than it should be for optimum shorebirding.
A single HUDSONIAN GODWIT was seen again at the Oceanside Marine Nature
Study Area last Saturday and up to 5 MARBLED GODWITS were still around
Jones Inlet at least to Tuesday often seen on the island just east of the
Coast Guard Station. A WHIMBREL flew by Lemon Creek Pier on Staten Island
last Saturday.

A seawatch from Robert Moses State Park field 2 yesterday did produce 4
PARASITIC JAEGERS while today's watch netted 2 CASPIAN and 44 ROYAL TERNS.
A couple of CASPIANS were also noted this week at Jones Beach and Mecox Bay.

A female KING EIDER continues off Orient Point while a RED-HEADED
WOODPECKER was spotted in Central Park Tuesday.

The highlight among the warblers this week was a male PROTHONOTARY WARBLER
found Tuesday afternoon in Manhattan's Bryant Park still present Thursday.
A CONNECTICUT WARBLER was found at Teatown Lake Reservation in central
Westchester last Saturday and ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLERS were noted at
Caumsett State Park Sunday and in Prospect Park Wednesday and Thursday.
Among the diminishing numbers of warblers this week were reports of
TENNESSEE, CAPE MAY, BAY-BREASTED, BLACKBURNIAN, CHESTNUT-SIDED, PRAIRIE,
HOODED and CANADA among others. YELLOW-BREASTED CHATS last Saturday in
Central Park and at Tobay Sanctuary were followed by one in Manhattan's
Herald Square Park on Tuesday while a few PHILADELPHIA VIREOS included
sightings in Prospect and Kissena Parks and at Floyd Bennett Field.

DICKCISSELS this week included one in Caumsett State Park Sunday, another
at Alley Pond Park Monday and one at the Chandler's Estate in Miller Place
yesterday and today and a BLUE GROSBEAK was also found in Alley Pond Park
Monday. A LARK SPARROW was present in Prospect Park all week and
CLAY-COLORED SPARROWS visited Central Park's north end and Kissena Park
Saturday and Caumsett State Park Sunday.

Other migrants recently included both cuckoos, many more YELLOW-BILLED than
BLACK-BILLED, YELLOW-BELLIED SAPSUCKER and passerines featuring AMERICAN
PIPIT, WINTER WREN, both RUBY-CROWNED and GOLDEN-CROWNED KINGLETS and such
sparrows as LINCOLN'S and WHITE-CROWNED with a FOX in Central Park Saturday
as well as some NELSON'S SPARROWS mostly in coastal saltmarshes but also
occasionally inland.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Change of Date for Queens County Bird Club Big Sit
All,

The Sixth Annual Queens County Bird Club Big Sit will be moved to Sunday,
October 13, instead of Saturday as originally scheduled. This is to take
advantage of the forecast northwest winds on Sunday.

Original email with information on how to participate is below my signature.

Good Birding,
Corey Finger



The sixth annual Queens County Bird Club Big Sit will take place at the
Battery Harris Platform at Fort Tilden in, you guessed it, Queens, on
Saturday, 12 October. (If we get horrific weather we’ll move it to the
13th.)

The Big Sit is an all-day-long event where we seek to see as many species
as possible from a single location in 24 hours (though we usually start an
hour or so before dawn and go until dark). Last year we crushed our record
when we saw 91 species and we hope to at least come close to that tally
again this year.

If you want to come you don’t have to spend the whole day. You can come for
a quick visit, an extended stay, or join us for the whole shebang. Feel
free to bring snacks and warm beverages!

An account of last year’s Big Sit is here:
http://www.10000birds.com/queens-county-bird-club-2018-big-sit-results.htm?doing_wp_cron=1569717649.4110460281372070312500

Hope to see you on the platform!

Good Birding,
Corey Finger

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Jamaica Bay East Pond Godwits (NO)

As to be expected (but there is always hope), the rain driven Hudsonian and single Marbled Godwits were a no show today on the East Pond. It also looks like the lone Hudsonian that had stayed around for a bit might have departed with yesterday’s flock.

The 3 American Avocets continue up at the north end and 4 Long-billed Dowitchers were seen up that end as well.

Other shorebirds included, 2 Semipalmated Plovers, 4 Least Sandpipers, 1 Semipalmated Sandpiper, 2 Pectoral Sandpipers, 1 Stilt Sandpiper, 1 Dunlin, 2 White-rumped Sandpipers, 9 Greater Yellowlegs and 8 Lesser Yellowlegs.

Duck numbers continue to build with Ruddy Ducks and American Wigeons seeing the largest increase. Greater Scaup have arrived as well. Other notables were the 4 Glossy Ibis that were still near the Southend.

Cheers,
--------

No Long-billed Dowitcher for me. However,
I did count 31 Hudsonian Godwits, 1 Marbled Godwit, 4 Stilt Sandpipers, 2 Short-billed Dowitchers, 37 Greater Yellowlegs, 7 Lesser Yellowlegs and 1 Dunlin. All on the southend.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Prothonotary warbler Bryant Park
I found a Prothonotary yesterday pm in Bryant Park and got some atrocious
record shots.
Fortunately Jean Shum has relocated it this am and got some excellent
photos.

It is in the SW corner of the 'lawn' plantings amid the chaos of turning
the lawn into an ice rink.

Subject: RE: [nysbirds-l] Lined Seedeater, Queens
Hey, we had to go to South Africa to see this bird. https://rbc-pix.smugmug.com/Nature/Nature-Images/Wydah



It is common, of course, for grassland birds globally to use melodious songs, and often dazzly tail feathers, in displays customized to their habitats. And this makes them prime targets for the cage bird trade. A couple of years ago, I was involved (as a photo contributor) in a Miami Herald article on the wydah’s appearance in Florida. http://www.miamiherald.com/news/local/environment/article180926506.html#storylink=cpy.



Somebody may know whether NE strays are likely to be local escapes, versus vagrants from newly established US colonies. We’ll see how the incursion develops. Wydahs could give a whole new look to the Shawangunk Grasslands one of these days!

I'm not sure why this bird has not garnered more attention within the birding community. Lined Seedeater is a trans-equatorial austral migrant and a plausible candidate for natural vagrancy to North America. There is a specimen from the Isles of Shoals, New Hampshire, from 8 August 1935 (MCZ), and records of vagrants north of the regular northern South American austral winter (our summer) range from Costa Rica, and from Guadeloupe--the latter from 6-7 Sep 2017, perhaps not coincidentally almost exactly the date the present bird was found this year.

Prof. Mitra,

We had a Pin-tailed Whydah today in Central Park (Compost area, around 106 Street). I don’t think it is a “vagrant” (there are small colonies of these birds in California and Florida) but probably an escapee. We did not see any band or tag in the legs of the bird.

I did report the bird in my e-Bird report for Central Park (today).

Thanks, Nathan.

I had only heard via word of mouth about the sighting on 7 Sep and then seen the photo from a few days ago.

The lack of excitement makes sense in retrospect, given that some of the people in the know were aware of the band.

The rest of us had to wonder whether anybody had done due diligence (as turned out to be true) or whether it was another case of not very well informed indifference toward a species with genuine potential for vagrancy. To me this highlights the importance of the listserv for cases like this that require analysis and explanation.

I'm gonna let it hang out there on the Hot 100 for a while, as my latest lifebird on eBird, to amuse the guilty and punish the innocent!

Hello Bob,
Just of note these birds are widely available for purchase online and maybe even in local pet stores. I think many feel that it was probably an escapee rather than the more unlikely scenario of a vagrant, but who knows?

I'm not sure why this bird has not garnered more attention within the birding community. Lined Seedeater is a trans-equatorial austral migrant and a plausible candidate for natural vagrancy to North America. There is a specimen from the Isles of Shoals, New Hampshire, from 8 August 1935 (MCZ), and records of vagrants north of the regular northern South American austral winter (our summer) range from Costa Rica, and from Guadeloupe--the latter from 6-7 Sep 2017, perhaps not coincidentally almost exactly the date the present bird was found this year.

Subject: FW: [nysbirds-l] Lined Seedeater, Queens
Thanks, Nathan.

I had only heard via word of mouth about the sighting on 7 Sep and then seen the photo from a few days ago.

The lack of excitement makes sense in retrospect, given that some of the people in the know were aware of the band.

The rest of us had to wonder whether anybody had done due diligence (as turned out to be true) or whether it was another case of not very well informed indifference toward a species with genuine potential for vagrancy. To me this highlights the importance of the listserv for cases like this that require analysis and explanation.

With a chance at the former as an inducement for the enduring the latter, I visited the Charles Memorial Park this morning, on the north shore of Jamaica Bay, directly north of the parking area where we stage for visits to the north end of the East Pond.

The male Lined Seedeater was skulky but still present, continuing from at least 7 Sep:

https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S60461352

I'm not sure why this bird has not garnered more attention within the birding community. Lined Seedeater is a trans-equatorial austral migrant and a plausible candidate for natural vagrancy to North America. There is a specimen from the Isles of Shoals, New Hampshire, from 8 August 1935 (MCZ), and records of vagrants north of the regular northern South American austral winter (our summer) range from Costa Rica, and from Guadeloupe--the latter from 6-7 Sep 2017, perhaps not coincidentally almost exactly the date the present bird was found this year.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Stone Bridge Nighthawk Watch - Setauket, NY
Sixteen observers came out on Sunday night, the last night of the Nighthawk Watch, to look for nighthawks but were, alas, disappointed since none were observed. As a consolation prize several species of "winter" ducks have arrived in the pond next to the watch including Northern Shoveler, A. Wigeon both of which displayed males coming out of eclipse plumage.

For the season (August 27th-October 6th) we saw 2,757 nighthawks in 4,276 minutes logged, an average of .644 birds per minute. This figure was well above the totals for 2017 and 2018 in which we saw 2,046 and 2,018 birds, at a rate of .513 and.499 birds per minute, respectively.

Thank you for coming out and participating. Hopefully, we'll see many of you again next year. The Nighthawk Watch has become one of the go-to social events of the Three Village Area!!

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Madison Square Park, Manhattan, 10/5
Our 6-acre jewel of a micro-park finally opened its branches to fall migration today.  While it's been a bit slow so far this season, last night's conditions made for an active morning, yielding a year-high of 24 species.  Highlights were a four-sparrow Redbud Lawn (Lincoln's, Swamp, White-throated, and House, with Winter Wren too), Sapsuckers in just about every tree, three Scarlet Tanagers in close association at the south end, Osprey and Raven flyovers, Phoebes and a Pewee.  Much fun to extract so much avian life from such a relatively small patch of NYC green.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] JBWR Hudsonian Godwit / Long-billed Dowitchers
At Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge, East Pond south end, early this afternoon
were three Long-billed Dowtichers and a still decently colored Hudsonian
Godwit. The only other shorebirds in sight here were Lesser Yellowlegs.
Pretty good quality for the little quantity. I did not check the north end,
so I can't say whether the Avocets are still around. Also at the south end,
two Snow Geese are in.

BEGIN TAPE

Greetings. This is the New York Rare Bird Alert for Friday, October 4th
2019 at 9pm. The highlights of today's tape are possible MASKED BOOBY, KING
EIDER, EURASIAN WIGEON, AMERICAN AVOCET, HUDSONIAN GODWIT, MARBLED GODWIT,
AMERICAN GOLDEN-PLOVER, WILSON'S PHALAROPE, BAIRD'S SANDPIPER and other
shorebirds, LARK SPARROW, CLAY-COLORED SPARROW, SUMMER TANAGER, BLUE
GROSBEAK, DICKCISSEL, CONNECTICUT WARBLER and more.

A week of good variety but certainly not overwhelming numbers was actually
highlighted by a possible but unfortunately not confirmable new New York
State record when a sulid fitting the description of an adult like MASKED
BOOBY was spotted by a single observer flying west off Robert Moses State
Park field 2 around 2pm on Thursday afternoon. Under the conditions photos
could not be obtained and the bird could not be relocated farther down the
coast but it is unexpected opportunities like this that make seawatching so
exciting. It should be noted that for new New York State records NYSARC
does require that single observer records be accompanied by a photo or
other such evidence to be added to the official state list.

Among the increasing numbers of waterfowl a EURASIAN WIGEON was still on
the East Pond at Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge at least to Tuesday and a
female KING EIDER found on Sunday off Orient Point was still present with
some Common Eiders and White-winged Scoters today.

Shorebirds on Jamaica Bay's still too high East Pond this week featured up
to 3 AMERICAN AVOCETS at least to Tuesday, an HUDSONIAN GODWIT last Sunday
and SORA along the pond edge. Another HUDSONIAN GODWIT was at Oceanside
Marine Nature Study Area last Saturday with two seen there Wednesday while
up to 5 MARBLED GODWITS were present on the bars off Jones Beach West End
earlier in the week with another at Oak Beach last Saturday along with an
AMERICAN GOLDEN-PLOVER. Another GOLDEN-PLOVER flew over Hillview Reservoir
on Yonkers Wednesday. Single WHIMBREL were at Rockaway Beach Saturday and
Smith Point County Park yesterday and a WILSON'S PHALAROPE was spotted at
Cupsogue County Park in West Hampton Dunes on Monday. Three or four
LONG-BILLED DOWITCHERS remain at Santapogue Creek in West Babylon with a
STILT SANDPIPER there last weekend and birds at Mecox Bay last Saturday
featured one BAIRD'S and 2 WHITE-RUMPED SANDPIPERS and 3 CASPIAN TERNS.
Other CASPIAN TERNS were noted this week from Brooklyn and Pelham Bay Park
along the coast out to Cupsogue and Orient Point and a GULL-BILLED TERN was
still at Jones Beach West End last Saturday.

Unusual for Manhattan were a SORA in Madison Square Park Sunday to Tuesday,
a VIRGINIA RAIL in Abingdon Square Park Saturday to Thursday and an EASTERN
WHIP-POOR-WILL in Central Park on Monday.

RED-HEADED WOODPECKERS were spotted in Central Park last weekend, at Lenoir
Preserve in Yonkers last Saturday and at Jones Beach West End Monday.
Single YELLOW-BREASTED CHATS were found in Manhattan's Washington Square
Park Monday, at Oceanside Wednesday and on Randall's Island on Thursday.
Brooklyn's Green-wood Cemetery attracted a DICKCISSEL last Monday, a LARK
SPARROW Sunday and Monday, a CLAY-COLORED SPARROW Monday and Tuesday and
CONNECTICUT WARBLER Wednesday with a SUMMER TANAGER there Monday. Another
DICKCISSEL was in Central Park's north end on Tuesday and Wednesday with a
CLAY-COLORED SPARROW also in the park on Sunday. A SUMMER TANAGER also
visited Central Park Tuesday and Wednesday with another in Yonkers Tuesday.
Another DICKCISSEL visited Brooklyn's Shore Road Park to Wednesday and a
BLUE GROSBEAK appeared at Ridgewood Reservoir in Queens Tuesday. A
CONNECTICUT WARBLER was found at Tudor City Greens last Saturday and a few
NELSON'S SPARROWS have arrived at various coastal saltmarshes this week.

To phone in reports call Tom Burke at (914) 967-4922.

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

Date: 10/4/19 6:31 pm
From: Richard Fried, VMD <rfried...>
Subject: [nysbirds-l] Linnaean Society of NY Program, October 8th, 2019, at the American Museum of Natural History
On Tuesday evening, October 8th, 2019 the Linnaean Society of New York 2019/2020 Speaker Program will feature two new presentations sure to be of interest to New York birders:

6:00 Shawn Billerman – “How Hybridization in Birds Can Teach Us About Biodiversity, Climate Change, and Evolution”

Hybridization occurs when two different species interbreed and produce offspring. While we often think of hybridization in animals as something that’s rare, or something that is a reproductive dead end, it is actually fairly common, and an important tool to help us understand how and why species evolved in the first place. In the bird world, it’s estimated that hybridization occurs in 10% of all species. Hybrid zones, geographic regions where two species overlap and interbreed, have been particularly important in shaping our understanding of evolution. Billerman’s research has focused on studying hybridization in the Great Plains of North America, where multiple pairs of species hybridize, including Eastern and Spotted Towhees, Indigo and Lazuli Buntings, and Baltimore and Bullock’s Orioles. Using these species as a guide, we will explore ways in which hybridization in birds, when combined with recent advances in genetics, museum specimens, and climate change can teach us about biodiversity and the evolution of species.

Shawn Billerman currently works at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology where he is a Science Editor with the Birds of the World Project. Shawn has also studied hybridization in birds, including between Red-naped and Red-breasted Sapsuckers in the Pacific Northwest, and in towhees, orioles, and buntings in the Great Plains.


7:45 Thomas Gray – “ Conserving South East Asia’s Elusive Rarities”
South East Asia is at the heart of the global extinction crisis containing more threatened species and experiencing higher rates of forest loss than any comparable continental area. As a result of the region's rapid population and economic growth many of its unique and threatened species are being pushed into deeper and remoter corners of the region. This poses a quandary for conservationists—how to find, and then protect, some of the planet's most elusive and poorly known species? This talk will discuss some of the approaches being used by conservation biologists in Asia to find, monitor, and conserve threatened wildlife. These include analyzing DNA contained within blood-feeding leeches to help track-down saola (the Asian Unicorn), interviewing rural Cambodians about the majestic giant ibis, and extracting water from the Mekong River to find shed skin samples from the planet’s largest freshwater fish: the Mekong Giant Catfish.

Tom Gray is the Director of Science for the conservation NGO Wildlife Alliance. He moved to New York, in August 2018, after 15 years in South East Asia. A keen birder since childhood, he followed his passion and undertook his PhD research on the conservation of the Bengal Florican, a threatened species of bustard, in Cambodia. He subsequently worked for WWF and WCS in Cambodia and Laos, leading work on monitoring threatened species and helping governments with protected area management. He joined Wildlife Alliance, the leader in Direct Protection of Forests and Wildlife in tropical Asia, in 2016. He has authored more than 50 peer-reviewed papers on the conservation and status of threatened species in Asia and is a member of the IUCN Species Survival Commission.


Both presentations are free and will be held in the Linder Theater on the first floor of the American Museum of Natural History in New York City. Enter at West 77th Street between Central Park West and Columbus Avenue. All welcome!

Complete details of these exciting presentations and the rest of the 2019/2020 program can be found here:

From: Sean Sime <sean...>
Subject: [nysbirds-l] Interesting Sulid at RMSP yesterday
Yesterday afternoon at 2pm a very interesting sulid passed Field 2 at
Robert Moses State Park that showed many characteristics consistent with an
adult Masked Booby. Below are my field notes written immediately after the
sighting.
"“Picked up the bird in scope when it was at roughly “1 o’clock “ and
slowly being pushed west by the ENE wind.
Immediately stood out as an adult or near adult sulid. It was drifting and
making wobbly circles and not actively feeding. It wasn’t giving me a
dorsal view of the spread wing, but even in profile the amount of black
seemed extensive in the primaries. I could see black feathering at the base
of the light colored bill. The head color matched the white of the body.
When the bird finally banked I could see the black extended past the
primaries and included all the secondaries as well. The only white on the
upper wing was the leading edge back to the coverts and from the body to
the wrist. The black appeared solid and not blotchy.
Overall the bird appeared smaller and less powerful than NOGA”

An attempt to race to get ahead of it and seawatch from Long Beach proved
fruitless. Although not a chaseable bird, it's worth getting the word out
as a reminder that early autumn easterlies can produce along the coast.
This year there were (and still are) numbers of Brown Booby and other more
"tropical" species in the NE which will likely reorient with each passing
cold front and cooling water temps.

Good birding,

Sean Sime

From: Patricia Lindsay <pjlindsay...>
Subject: [nysbirds-l] Sixth Annual Seatuck LI Challenge Results
The 6th Annual Seatuck LI Birding Challenge was conducted on 28 September this year, and despite the date being later than in past years, the weather was still more like summer than fall. The persistent tendency for the wind to be lightly from the northeast and the warm, sunny weather no doubt was responsible for smaller numbers and less variety of migrant species than would be expected, many of them most likely leftover from the last good flight day. Many folks rued the slow pace and low number of species found on this hot day, yet enthusiasm was still high all the way to the five o’clock hour when the compilation and celebrations began at the lovely Scully mansion.

Competing this year were five senior teams with a total of 21 participants and six high school teams with over a dozen (not all names were submitted). Senior teams found 155 species, and the high school teams found 41 species; they added two not seen by the senior teams, Ring-necked Duck and Least Tern, bringing the total to 157 species. Not bad for a day in the doldrums!

The cumulative total for the six years now stands at 235, with four species added this year: Lesser Scaup (Bird Brainz and Four Harbors Herons at Connetquot River SP), Northern Saw-whet Owl (Pteam Ptarmigeddon, Northport), Winter Wren (Outlaws, Southards Pond Park), and White-crowned Sparrow (Four Harbors Herons, Jones Beach West End).

The Outlaws took first place with 113 species and 15 “saves” (species not seen by any other team). All of the Outlaws have long histories competing in the challenge, often together in various combinations, and generally producing very competitive totals—but always short of first place. Thus, it was a satisfying reward to finally wrest the coveted trophy from the younger whipper-snapper teams!

In second place were the Four Harbors Herons, with 107, and in third place, Pteam Ptarmigeddon with 100. The Three-legged Ravens! took first prize for the high school teams, seeing an impressive 31 of the 41 total species for that group. All the senior teams came in with multiple “saves”, making for a nice variety of the more unusual species.

Thanks to Enrico Nardone and the Seatuck team for organizing and hosting this increasingly popular and exciting event. For more information on this important organization, visit the website at:

https://www.seatuck.org/index.php/seatuck-birding-challenge

If you would like a copy of the spreadsheet breaking out the teams, species and saves, please email me off the listserv.

We hope to see everyone back next year, and as always, we welcome new teams to join us!

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Marine Nature Study Area, Oceanside
The day started slow but picked up considerably when Mike Farina and I saw an adult and juvenile HUDSONIAN GODWIT feeding. Both birds soon flew off. Among the few Shorebird species was a group of 12 KILLDEER.
The trail along the BACK fence had a LINCOLN , several SWAMP and SONG SPARROWS as well as SAVANNAH SPARROWS around the main trail plus a SALTMARSH SPARROW in the marsh. In the dune area there were single YELLOW-RUMPED and a BLACKPOLL WARBLER. Also, a very brief look at a YELLOW-BREASTED CHAT.
Other birds of interested were COOPER’S HAWK, GREAT BLUE HERON, BELTED KINGFISHER, CAROLINA WREN, NORTHERN FLICKER and BROWN THRASHER.

Last night we had a highly productive count with 237 nighthawks coming through. Typically, by early October the numbers start waning so the total for 10/1 was a large surprise. Will be curious to see how the weather over the next couple of days affects the count.

The Virginia Rail was still in Abington Square Park (West Village, NYC) today as of 5PM. It was spending most of the time foraging in shrubbery (and not visible), but made occasional forays across the paths and open lawn.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Queens Big Sit on Saturday, 10/12
The sixth annual Queens County Bird Club Big Sit will take place at the Battery Harris Platform at Fort Tilden in, you guessed it, Queens, on Saturday, 12 October. (If we get horrific weather we’ll move it to the 13th.)

The Big Sit is an all-day-long event where we seek to see as many species as possible from a single location in 24 hours (though we usually start an hour or so before dawn and go until dark). Last year we crushed our record when we saw 91 species and we hope to at least come close to that tally again this year.

If you want to come you don’t have to spend the whole day. You can come for a quick visit, an extended stay, or join us for the whole shebang. Feel free to bring snacks and warm beverages!

An account of last year’s Big Sit is here: http://www.10000birds.com/queens-county-bird-club-2018-big-sit-results.htm?doing_wp_cron=1569717649.4110460281372070312500

Hope to see you on the platform!

Good Birding,
Corey Finger

P.S. The Queens County Christmas Bird Count will be Sunday, 15 December, this year if you can’t get enough birding in the best borough in NYC. We’d love to have some more folks join the count this year!

[~BEGIN RBA TAPE~]

Greetings! This is the New York Rare Bird Alert for Friday, September 27,
2019 at 10:00 pm.

The highlights of today’s tape are pelagic trip results including NORTHERN
FULMAR, AUDUBON’S SHEARWATER, POMARINE JAEGER and RED-NECKED PHALAROPE,
EURASIAN WIGEON, AMERICAN GOLDEN-PLOVER, BUFF-BREASTED SANDPIPER, HUDSONIAN
and MARBLED GODWITS, WILSON’S PHALAROPE, YELLOW-BREASTED CHAT, CONNECTICUT
WARBLER, CLAY-COLORED and LARK SPARROWS, DICKCISSEL, BLUE GROSBEAK and more.

Last Sunday a pelagic trip organized by See Life Paulagics aboard the
Brooklyn VI began a pleasant day on the ocean at water depth of over 7,000
feet, later working back through Hudson Canyon, with highlights including
21 NORTHERN FULMARS, 12 CORY’S, 323 GREAT and 23 AUDUBON’S SHEARWATERS, 1
LEACH’S and 222 WILSON’S STORM-PETRELS, an adult POMARINE JAEGER, 1
NORTHERN GANNET, 7 LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULLS and 6 RED-NECKED PHALAROPES.

Though the East Pond at Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge still has too high a
water level to attract large numbers of shorebirds, waterfowl numbers
continue to build there, with a EURASIAN WIGEON showing up on the pond last
Saturday. Despite the conditions, a reasonable selection of shorebirds
this week did feature some HUDSONIAN GODWITS, with 5 noted there Monday,
while Tuesday produced both a BUFF-BREASTED SANDPIPER and a WILSON’S
PHALAROPE. Among the other shorebirds there have been a few STILT,
PECTORAL, and WHITE-RUMPED SANDPIPERS, with a LONG-BILLED DOWITCHER also
identified there last Sunday.

Roughly 4 LONG-BILLED DOWITCHERS also continue along Santapogue Creek off
Venetian Boulevard in West Babylon.

At Jerome Reservoir in the Bronx, drained for the second time recently,
there were still 3 AMERICAN GOLDEN-PLOVERS present Monday, 2 on Tuesday,
and a STILT SANDPIPER visited there today.

Among the shorebirds at Jones Beach West End there were 3 or 4 MARBLED
GODWITS seen on the bar off the Coast Guard Station through Monday, with 1
there Wednesday. A GULL-BILLED TERN also visited the bar from Saturday at
least to Wednesday, and another GULL-BILLED was noted at Jamaica Bay
Wildlife Refuge Wednesday.

Up to 3 CASPIAN TERNS were at Jones Beach West End over last weekend, and
others were reported from Prospect Park Lake last Saturday, Plumb Beach
Monday, Jamaica Bay Tuesday, and Smith Point County Park in Shirley
Tuesday, the latter site on Tuesday also producing 65 ROYAL TERNS along
with 3 PARASITIC JAEGERS offshore.

A nice coastal fall flight took place Wednesday morning, witnessed by
observers at both Coney Island Creek Park in Brooklyn and at Robert Moses
State Park Field 2 on Fire Island. The mix of the most common of the
identified WARBLERS varied slightly, but the flight featured good numbers
of NORTHERN WATERTHUSH, BLACK-AND-WHITE, TENNESSEE, COMMON YELLOWTHROAT,
AMERICAN REDSTART, CAPE MAY, NORTHERN PARULA, MAGNOLIA and BLACKPOLL, with
lesser numbers of several other species. A CONNECTICUT was identified at
Moses Park, and 2 WHIMBREL and a DICKCISSEL were among the other highlights
there.

Another DICKCISSEL was spotted at Jamaica BayWildlife Refuge last Saturday.

A few BLUE GROSBEAKS included one at Moses Park Saturday to Tuesday,
another at Hillview Reservoir in Yonkers Tuesday, and 1 at Sunken Meadow
State Park Thursday.

A LARK SPARROW was reported from Midland Beach on Staten Island Wednesday,
and CLAY-COLORED SPARROW featured singles at Moses Park last Saturday, and
on Wednesday at Lido Beach Passive Preserve and Pelham Bay Park.

A few YELLOW-BREASTED CHATS included birds at Moses Park Sunday and
Tuesday, at the Avalon Preserve in Stony Brook Monday, and at the Oceanside
Marine Nature Study Area today.

Migrant RED-HEADED WOODPECKSERS appeared on Staten Island Sunday, in
Prospect Park Tuesday, and on Governors Island today.

Other recent migrants have included a decent number of YELLOW-BILLED
CUCKOOS, YELLOW-BELLIED SAPSUCKER, PHILADELPHIA VIREO, and LINCOLN’S and
WHITE-CROWNED SPARROWS.

To phone in reports please 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] Jones Beach: Marbled Godwits, Gull-billed Tern, Empi
There are now 4 Marbled Godwits in the Jones Beach area. They were embedded
in the large Oystercatcher roost, which this morning was on the outer part
of the sand spit near the Coast Guard station. All left about half way down
on the falling tide.



One reason for going there today was to hopefully catch up with the
lingering Gull-billed Tern. As late is it now is for one to be around, I
suspected (and actually had seen a distant photo of it) that it would be in
a plumage that I didn't have. After a previous trip in which I only saw it
as a fly by, I succeeded in getting pictures today. It looks to me to be a
molting adult, not all the way into winter plumage. If I'm wrong, my tern
guru will let me know. I posted a picture at my web site
(http://stevewalternature.com/ ).



I also posted pictures of an Empidonax flycatcher (one of the very few
migrants that I came across). Sadly, after many years of birding, I can't
say that I've mastered expertise in these guys (and I don't have an Empi
guru). When I looked at the pictures, I got the impression of a buffy wash
on the belly. But surely, that must be yellow? As in Yellow-bellied
Flycatcher? But it doesn't strike me as that, and it is kind of late.
Acadian? Gotta study up on primary projections.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Hunter Island warblers today, Pelham Bay Park, Bronx
There was lots of warbler activity, birds seem to have landed and spread out quickly. I know I missed some species and saw multiples of the ones listed.
(Thought there was a Mourning Warbler but couldn’t stay on it long enough for a positive ID.)

Black-throated Green Warbler
Black and White Warbler
Yellow Warbler
Cape May Warbler
Magnolia Warbler
Common Yellowthoat
American Redstart
Chestnut-sided Warbler
Northern Parula
Black -throated Blue Warbler


Most birds were seen at the very beginning of the wooded area as you proceed up the hill from the parking area.

It looks like Patrick Horan had some terrific birds at the other end of the park in the southern zone.

The Bronx has good birding, we need more observers.

The morning flight on coastal Long Island is very heavy and diverse today, as viewed with Doug Gochfeld, Shane Blodgett and others at Coney Island Creek Park, Kings, and by Michael McBrien at Robert Moses SP, Suffolk.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Royal Terns on Long Island
Last year and this year I have seen a number of Royal Terns in Brooklyn
banded with field-readable bands -- six this summer and early fall alone.
They have all been juveniles banded a month or two before I saw them, all
from one of two colonies in Virginia, either near Chincoteague or Hampton
City. Based on their behavior with the other terns around them, it seems
clear they are traveling with a parent or both parents. It is impossible to
know the origin of all the birds without field-readable bands, of course,
but it seems likely that many or most of the Royal Terns that appear on
Long Island in late summer are coming north from Virginia in search of bait
fish after their breeding season is over.

Others may have reached the same conclusion independently a long time
before me.

Best,

Joshua Malbin

One should never enter the fields on Indiana Road. The last time I was there there were birders from a number of states trampling all of the fields, much to the dismay (right fully so) of the local farmers. So much so that there was talk of putting up a locked entrance gate.

There a several private roads but you can enter through Skinner’s lane and drive in the direction of Route 12 and look around for migrating shorebirds (now in early fall). You will pass several sad farms and now there a few “protected” medical cannabis farms too, and  the area is under surveillance.

The other road that is private but birders use is Indiana rd that is good for migrating hawks in Fall.

One should never enter the fields on Indiana Road. The last time I was there there were birders from a number of states trampling all of the fields, much to the dismay (right fully so) of the local farmers. So much so that there was talk of putting up a locked entrance gate.

Felipe and Bob: Warren Sod Farm/Sunflower Valley Farm  is the farm that the entrance is on Rt 12 between the silos.  This road leads to the "bridge: that Bob mentioned. The other side of the bridge is Skinner's Lane. This is private property and the farmer has stated that it is off-limits to birders.  They allow access by invitation only.
Pine Turf Nursery:  Please stop and ask for permission at the office first.  The farmer have stated that they do not want cars on their road after a heavy rain.Please keep this in mind.
Skinner's Lane: Still open, but occasionally a worker will harass birders.  THIS IS NOT A THROUGH ROAD. Please trun around before the bridge,as the farm across from the Skinner's Lane farm is the farm that is restricted to birders. Please exit through the same entrance you entered off Pulasky Highway.
Please be birding ambassadors in the Black Dirt.  Many Black Dirt farmers are seeing their requests disregarded.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Stone Bridge Nighthawk Watch
Observers enjoyed another solid day of Caprimulgid viewing with 155 nighthawks being tallied. Many birds at medium to low elevations; two more tailless birds were observed.

Relating to this taillessness, the BNA account for this species suggests the bird undergoes its definitive basic molt, which is a complete molt, on its wintering grounds. This would indicate no molting during migration; thus our observations of several tailless birds suggests some other reason for the loss of all the tail feathers, such as attempted predation, or that the account is wrong, at least as it relates to the remiges.

Anyone with more information or has thoughts about the tailless birds we're seeing can reach me off-line at <redknot...> mailto:<redknot...>

Thank you Christopher for the links.
I agree that the curve on your link is compressed horizontally but it shows the same pattern I described before. Even the curve of each specific habitat is showing this pattern.
Look at (fig 1, A and B) on page 12 from the full study and you will see that each habitat has the U shaped curve (or reversed bell shape). The Boreal Forest's curve, for example, becomes completely flat in the last few years.
Birds numbers' decline should be more severe in the last couple of decades when the enveronmental changes are more severe. On the contrary, the decline recently becomes less steeped than in the early stages of the study when the conditions were more favorable.
It would be interesting to know why this paradox is happening.
I am suggesting the presence of other factors that play role here. For example, birds might have some ability to adjust to adverse conditions in order to survive and thrive. Finidng the answer could provide help in the fight to save wildlife.

The x-axis is compressed relative to the one appearing in Living Bird and the online graphic (https://www.allaboutbirds.org/vanishing-1-in-4-birds-gone), so the curve in the State of the Birds report appears to have a sharper decline; although, there was a minor increase about a decade ago, which helped level out the line.

To me it looks like a simple function that illustrates the entire estimated decline from 10 to 7, as though the current population size was the end point. In other words, the graphic looks like the exponential loss of 3 billion birds, starting with all of the 3 billion birds that used to exist, to the zero of those birds that remain today.

It has the properties you describe, with the amount of absolute loss diminishing in the recent years, because the population itself is getting smaller all the time. I suspect that this graphic is not to be taken literally but instead is a simple, fitted function meant to express the overall rate of loss that was estimated over these decades.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Birding Access Black dirt
Please note: that birding the farm formally known as the Warren Sod Farm (now known as the Sunflower Valley Farm) hasbeen *RESTRICTED* since last year and is not accessible to birders.  I have had conversations with the owner and he wanted me to pass along this information.To my knowledge there hasn't been any updates since then.

Felipe and Bob: Warren Sod Farm/Sunflower Valley Farm  is the farm that the entrance is on Rt 12 between the silos.  This road leads to the "bridge: that Bob mentioned. The other side of the bridge is Skinner's Lane. This is private property and the farmer has stated that it is off-limits to birders.  They allow access by invitation only.
Pine Turf Nursery:  Please stop and ask for permission at the office first.  The farmer have stated that they do not want cars on their road after a heavy rain.Please keep this in mind.
Skinner's Lane: Still open, but occasionally a worker will harass birders.  THIS IS NOT A THROUGH ROAD. Please trun around before the bridge,as the farm across from the Skinner's Lane farm is the farm that is restricted to birders. Please exit through the same entrance you entered off Pulasky Highway.
Please be birding ambassadors in the Black Dirt.  Many Black Dirt farmers are seeing their requests disregarded.

One should never enter the fields on Indiana Road. The last time I was there there were birders from a number of states trampling all of the fields, much to the dismay (right fully so) of the local farmers. So much so that there was talk of putting up a locked entrance gate.

The other place to go is Pine Island Turf Nursery. I suggest NOT to visit that farm during the week since they are working and preparing the fields for winter. I generally go there ONLY during the weekends, when the place is more quiet.

As for birds, there were very few.  But in a few months -- let's hope.

Trespassing is *against the law*. Adults should know this. Birders or photographers are *not* exempt. 
See the following document on proper behavior. Sheesh, does it really need to be posted? Apparently and sadly yes. Yes it does.

There a several private roads but you can enter through Skinner’s lane and drive in the direction of Route 12 and look around for migrating shorebirds (now in early fall). You will pass several sad farms and now there a few “protected” medical cannabis farms too, and the area is under surveillance.

The other road that is private but birders use is Indiana rd that is good for migrating hawks in Fall.

I thank Felipe Pimentel who provided directions to the Pine Island Turf farm.

Yesterday I went exploring. The attached map is the result. Enter the area at Skinner Lane, 41.320541, -74.435339. My route is the narrow black line. I went up Skinner Lane to the northwest until it meets Iris Road, which is called Celery Avenue on my Iphone map app. Then I turned left and follow Iris a long time.

The maps are wrong in that there is no connection between Iris and Transport at 41.300798, -74.472080.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Birding the Black Dirt Region, Orange County
A few weeks ago I asked here for directions about where to actually go in the Black Dirt region.  One can find many references to birding there online, and there are some ebird spots, but there are many dirt or gravel roads and many seem to be on private property, and many are obviously not driveable once you see them.  So what is an out-of-the-area birder supposed to do? 

I thank Felipe Pimentel who provided directions to the Pine Island Turf farm.
Yesterday I went exploring.  The attached map is the result.  Enter the area at Skinner Lane, 41.320541, -74.435339.  My route is the narrow black line.  I went up Skinner Lane to the northwest until it meets Iris Road, which is called Celery Avenue on my Iphone map app.  Then I turned left and follow Iris a long time.  It is all an excellent gravel road.  I was surprised to see a bridge over the Wallkill River at 41.325083, -74.466914.  It is certainly driveable.  The maps are wrong in that there is no connection between Iris and Transport at 41.300798, -74.472080.
As for birds, there were very few.  But in a few months -- let's hope.

Subject: LINKS - Re: [nysbirds-l] News Alert: North America has lost 29% of its birds since 1970, study finds. Experts blame habitat loss, pesticides, light pollution and cats.
Hi Shai and Gus,

Here’s a link to the 2019 State of the Birds: https://www.stateofthebirds.org/2019/download-pdf-report/

At the above link, the front page shows a graph depicting the actual data from 1970 to present. The x-axis is compressed relative to the one appearing in Living Bird and the online graphic (https://www.allaboutbirds.org/vanishing-1-in-4-birds-gone), so the curve in the State of the Birds report appears to have a sharper decline; although, there was a minor increase about a decade ago, which helped level out the line. Also of note, the y-axis depicts the population change (in billions of birds) by way of negative values.

The full Science article is below, although, I’m not certain if those outside of a university setting will have full access:

https://science.sciencemag.org/content/early/2019/09/18/science.aaw1313

Hope these links are helpful.

Sincerely,
Chris T-H

Hi Gus,

I really think it's just an artifact of the way the figure was made, and not something with a complicated biological explanation. To me it looks like a simple function that illustrates the entire estimated decline from 10 to 7, as though the current population size was the end point. In other words, the graphic looks like the exponential loss of 3 billion birds, starting with all of the 3 billion birds that used to exist, to the zero of those birds that remain today.

Hi Shaibal,

I took into consideration the possibility of exponential decline but it didn't look like that.
If you calculate the decline in relation to the absolute number of birds at the beginning of each decade, the difference is more remarkable.
Here is the percentage of decline for each decade alone:
By the end of the 70s: 12%
By the end of the 80s: 9%
By the end of the 90s: 7%
BY the end if the 2000s: 4%
By now: 1-2%

I don't know if birds are finding a way to adjust with all the environmental changes that are taking place, or there are other factors involved.

Hi Gus and all,

The curve in the link has the shape characteristic of exponential decline at a constant rate. It has the properties you describe, with the amount of absolute loss diminishing in the recent years, because the population itself is getting smaller all the time. I suspect that this graphic is not to be taken literally but instead is a simple, fitted function meant to express the overall rate of loss that was estimated over these decades.

Best,
Shai

https://www.allaboutbirds.org/vanishing-1-in-4-birds-gone/

The shape of the curve on the graphic in the above article is very intriguing to me. It starts with a steep decline in the first couple of decades and plateaued toward the last few years.
The curve suggests that more than 75% of birds losses happened in the first 25 years (betwween 1970 and 1995) and less than 25% of the losses took place in the last 25 years(from 1995 to present).
The fact that habitat loss, climate changes and other adverse environmental changes are worse in the last 25 years compared to the previous period suggests other factors are at play to slow down the decline of the total population.
Does anyone have any explanation for this contradiction?

Subject: [nysbirds-l] East Pond South End Queens
A very fast survey (1 hour total) from the south end to the raunt and back turned up:

South end:
1 Hudsonian Godwit
7 Stilt Sandpipers
6 Short-billed Dowitchers

Raunt
1 Caspian Tern
1 adult Bald Eagle

All of the common shorebirds you'd expect save:
0 White-rumped
0 Western Sandpiper
0 Pectoral Sandpiper.

Surely with a bit more time more could be found.

Good birding,

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Radar map
https://www.pauljhurtado.com/US_Composite_Radar/2019-9-21/

There is a lot of radar activities (green color) in NYC and the Tristate area this early morning (2 to 4 am) suggestive of a lot of birds landing.
Today looks to be a good birding day.
Good luck.
