I check on the Ospreys a couple times a week. The 2 adults are either close
to nest or in a nearby tree. As recently as Saturday one was still taking
branches to nest. I haven't seen any fledges yet. The last couple years the
cell tower operator has the nest removed so the Osprey need to rebuild.
This year they returned about April 13.
On a side note the Bald Eagle aerie, which can be seen at the West end of
the Erie Attica trail (Osprey are on East end of trail) has produced at
least 2 eaglets as it has for the past several years. Vegitation makes it
very difficult to see the aerie now. I'll be back on the trail later this
morning.

There has been an Osprey nest in Avon NY for several years now. So far as I know it is active now - has anyone checked the last couple weeks? It is on a cell tower on Farmers Rd. north from Rtes. 5 & 20 and just east of the Genesee River. - near the Avon village utility buildings.

Thank you for all the osprey nest reports. Keep sending them!

It’s vital that we know the extent of the Osprey population in our state
now so that we can track population changes in the future. Your reports
makes this work possible.

Hi,

Yesterday I took advantage of the weather and the absence of pedestrians at Woodlawn beach to enjoy the quiet and birds. On the board walk going down I had two CAT BIRDs, EASTERN PEEWEE, YELLOW WARBLER, a DOWNY WP, and HOUSE WREN. Along the beach I had a group of five female MERGs in the water: 1 common and 4 HOODED. Also in the creek was a male WOOD DUCK and a small brood of something in the creek that quickly dispersed as soon as I tried to catch up with them. Also present were HERRING GULL and 3 SPECIES of SWALLOWs. * No shore birds however.


Happy Summer!!

Thank you very much for the Osprey report. Without reports like yours, I
could not possible do the Central NY Osprey Survey. I will visit the nest
in the next two weeks and add it to my survey. It’s vital that we know the
extent of the Osprey population in our state now so that we can track
population changes in the future. Your reports makes this work possible.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Eagle fledglings, trumpeter swans, caspian terns
The 2 bald eagle fledglings at Ring Necked Marsh continue using the nest
they originally left 17 days ago as their daily dining area.
Interestingly, their feeding time frequently coincides with ours, between
5 and 7 PM. They are spending progressively less time there after feeding.
Yesterday both eaglets left the nest shortly after feeding to perch and
roost in tall hardwoods on the larger adjacent island near the center of
Ring Necked Marsh. Occasionally the adult delivering their fish dinner
stays to eat with them if there is enough to go around after both chicks
are well fed.
There is also an active osprey nest atop a 3'(above water level) stump100+
meters Ne. of the eagle nest, but I haven't checked on its progress
recently. The adults seemed to be still incubating 2+ weeks ago. Despite
their proximity to each other, I haven't noticed any interaction between
ospreys and eagles at Ring Necked in the past 5 weeks.

3 juvenile trumpeter swans have been present at Ring Neck or adjacent pools
for the past week, and seem quite relaxed around small clusters of
fishermen along the western shoreline.

1-3 Caspian terns are often present and I saw 7 together at Kumpf Marsh
late last week. Is anyone aware of confirmed nesting activity at Iroquois
Refuge ?

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Clay-colored Sparrows at John White WMA
Hi all, I just got back from my first round of grassland surveys at John White Wildlife Management Area in Genesee County and was able to find two singing Clay-colored Sparrows on the main property. Both birds were singing their distinctive, repeated buzz and I was able to get a good view of one bird, although it's hard to describe it as much more than a small, buffy sparrow. Anyway, one of the birds was conveniently located just north of the kiosk along Judge Road, singing continuously from a clump of goldenrod at about 9am today. Other good birds in the area included our usual grassland species suite: Bobolink, Eastern Meadowlark, Savannah Sparrow, Grasshopper Sparrow, and American Kestrel, plus Horned Lark in the adjacent cornfield.


If folks want to come and look for it, please remember that we're in peak grassland species breeding season and there are many ground-nesting birds on the property. There is safe but limited parking at the kiosk, and sturdy, waterproof boots and your preferred method of tick control are highly recommended. We were unable to mow our usual laneways before breeding season due to all the rain, so be mindful of groundhog holes and hummocks. The song carries surprisingly far, so hopefully people can find him without too much tromping around!

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Grasshopper Sparrows
Today on Oxbow Lane extension off Nation’s Road Al and I saw and photographed many Grasshopper Sparrows. The number we saw was around 10! For an uncommon bird, they sure were common in this spot. Also down almost to the end of the lane we found a singing Willow Flycatcher. In the distance we could hear a Cuckoo calling. One bobolink and 2 Brown Thrashers were seen too.
At the beginning of Nations Road were 3 male Pheasants in different fields. One had a female with him which I hadn’t seen in years. On Hustin Road we found a female Orchard Oriole that looked beautiful against the blue sky. It was a good day with good birds!

Hi again,
Miracles DO happen!  The BLACK-BELLIED WHISTLING DUCK has returned to the pond at the Clarence Town Clerk building grounds in Clarence on Goodrich Rd.  It’s currently sitting under a large willow on the south side of the pond.

Science Museum, call 896-5200. Press the pound
key to report sightings before the end of this
message.

Highlights of reports received May 30 through
June 6 from the Niagara Frontier Region.

Two locations for very rare BLACK-BELLIED
WHISTLING DUCKS this week.

June 1, a BLACK-BELLIED WHISTLING DUCK was seen
in-flight over Buffalo Harbor State Park,
formerly the Small Boat Harbor. The WHISTLING
DUCK appeared to drop into Tifft Nature
Preserve, but has not been re-located.

June 5, a BLACK-BELLIED WHISTLING DUCK was
photographed at the Town of Clarence Town Hall
pond on Goodrich Road. This WHISTLING DUCK was
not found on the 6th.

An AMER. WHITE PELICAN continues in the
Iroquois National Wildlife Refuge. June 3, the
pelican was reported at Kumpf Marsh and nearby
at Mohawk Pool, to the east of the bend in the
Feeder Road, north of Route 77.

Other Iroquois Refuge and Tonawanda Wildlife
Management Area reports - two SANDHILL CRANE on
Route 77 east of Griswold Road. Over 15 BLACK
TERNS at Cayuga Pool. On Owen Road, YELLOW-
BILLED CUCKOO, ACADIAN FLYCATCHER, OVENBIRD,
and multiple AMERICAN REDSTARTS and HOODED
WARBLERS. And, a BLACK-BILLED CUCKOO at the
Cedar Street bridge.

From Dunkirk Harbor, on Lake Erie in Chautauqua
County, a single RED KNOT, June 3, on the Main
Street beach and the stone inner breakwall.

On Grand Island, at Beaver Island State Park, a
LEAST BITTERN in the East River Marsh, viewed
from the south end of East River Road, and
seven CLIFF SWALLOW nests on the Park Road
bridge over the lagoon on the west side of
Beaver Island State Park. Also on Grand Island,
AMERICAN WOODCOCKS were heard before dawn on
Grand Island Blvd., near the Dunkin Donuts
shop.

Other reports - Two OLIVE-S. FLYCATCHERS at
Amherst State Park. A PILEATED WOODPECKER in a
West Seneca yard, and a single COMMON NIGHTHAWK
over the University District in Buffalo.

Two BOS field trips this Saturday, June 8. The
re-scheduled Whip-poor-will trip to the
Wainfleet Bog in Ontario will meet at 8 PM at
Wilson and Garringer Roads in Wainfleet, about
40 minutes from the Peace Bridge in Buffalo.
During the morning on the 8th, a half-day field
trip to search for uncommon CLAY-COL. SPARROWS
at Krull Park in Olcott. Meet at 7:30 AM at the
soccer field on Route 18, east of Route 78. And
the final BOS meeting of the season will be on
Wednesday, June 12 - a picnic and hike at Tifft
Nature Preserve in Buffalo. Meet at 6 PM with
your picnic meal for a brief meeting followed
by an evening hike through the preserve. As
always, visitors are welcome at meetings and
on field trips.

You may report sightings after the tone. Thank
you for calling and reporting.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Black-bellied Whistling Duck WAS in Clarence
Hi all,



A Black-bellied Whistling Duck was seen and photographed yesterday afternoon by Doug Mutton in Clarence at the small pond by the Clarence Town Hall on Goodrich Rd. This is most likely the same duck reported by Dean DiTommaso on Saturday at Buffalo Harbor SP. Unfortunately, the BOS only received word about yesterday’s find today and it wasn’t found at that location today, despite two searches.



The duck could be looking for some good habitat and it’s possible it found Tillman Road WMA. However, if it kept heading in a NE direction, it could also end up at Iroquois NWR.



So keep looking; it’s still in the area!

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] eaglets, terns,trumpeters Iroquois Refuge
Both eaglets left the Ringnecked Marsh nest on Monday. The first one did
so inadvertently and tumbled into the water. Eventually It crawled onto
some low shore vegetation on the nearby island where it spent the night.
Apparently it dried out this morning as I filmed it flying back to the nest
from a nearby islet, at around 12 30 pm, where one of the adults had a meal
waiting for it.Tuesday. The other eaglet left the nest at around 7 30 pm,
Monday and hadn't returned to the nest as of 3 PM Tuesday.

I also saw 1-2 Caspian Terns flying around Rignneck and another 7 at Kumpf
Marsh along with 7+ egrets. Ospreys are still incubating eggs on a stump
app'x. 3' above water level and barely 200 yards east of the eagle nest
(formerly used by ospreys to raise checks for the past 2 years. Quite
likely the same ones now using the stump)

There was also a lone juvenile trumpeter swan on Olsen Marsh, (a k a Cayuga
Pool), and more than a dozen black terns feeding there. No sign of the
white pelican though.

Also, I previously neglected to mention an Orchard Oriole singing at
Ringnecked Marsh, Monday PM

Sunday 6/2 three sub-adult trumpeter swans landed on Ring Necked Marsh at
around 7 15 PM and flew west an hour later
I also hear sandhill cranes calling to the west at around 8 15 as I have on
at least 3 ither visits within the past few weeks
One of the two eaglets looks strong enough to leave the nest this week.
Both of them did some wing exercises this evening.

Hi,

Today at White Chapel Memorial Pk. Cemetery off of Niagara Falls blvd by Ellicott creek I noticed a white bird which I thought was an oversized cabbage moth at first but as I realized the more distance it had it maintained it's regularity in size and then seemed larger to the point of robin sized and I then got out of my car to pursue it on foot. But was unable to relocate it. This sighting was near the back of the cemetery near the compost piles- North end? I put it out there just to find out if anyone else reported one.

Subject: Re: [GeneseeBirds-L] Osprey Nests
There are about 4 to 5 established Osprey Nests along Route 5 & 20 RIGHT
before the main Entrance to Montezuma Wildlife Refuge. There are usually
Ospreys sitting or perched in these nests, and perched in nearby trees.
Inside the Refuge is a live cam feed pointed at another Osprey Nest, which
you can view from inside the Montezuma Visitor Center - volunteers there
may be able to tell you more. You can also watch Osprey fishing from the
Loop at Montezuma.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Black-bellied Whistling-Duck - Buffalo
On Saturday, June 1st, Dean DiTommaso had a BLACK-BELLIED WHISTLING-DUCK in
flight at Buffalo Harbor State Park. He watched it until it dropped down and
appeared to land in Tifft Nature Preserve on the opposite side of Rt 5. Dean
searched for the bird there but was unable to find it. Clearly, this bird
could still be around. Local birders are encouraged to look for it in the
area and become a hero if they locate it!



Good birding!

A pair attempted to nest atop the USS Little Rock at the Naval Park in downtown Buffalo . I ebirded several checklists with photos earlier this month . they built a nest  and i last saw them fishing and going in and out of the nest with the fish . then they disappeared .. i have been seeing a single bird occasionally at times beach but no idea what happened to the pair . they used to nest  along the Buffalo River across from the Naval Park but the trees were cut down to build a sailing school several years ago ..  wishing there was another platform there , but somehow buffered from the wind

Fellow birders,

 

I've been surveying Ospreys in NY for ten years and am expanding my Osprey survey to include western NY and the Adirondack Park. To do this accurately, I will need the help of birders like you from across the state to report your Osprey sightings. 

 

Please send me the locations of any Osprey sightings and Osprey nests you find. The Cayuga Lake Osprey Trail lists all the nest currently under study. thank you in advance for your help!

 

Eyes to the sky!

Visitors:
20. Thanks to all the volunteers and visitors that helped during the past
three months. Your support helped make the season a success!


Weather:
Sunny but hazy. Light easterly winds.

Raptor Observations:
Slow migration throughout the day. Turkey vultures were most numerous but
also had some small groups of broad-wings in the last hour. 5 harriers and
8 bald eagles.

Non-raptor Observations:
Common loon, 2 alder flycatchers.

No new species for season.
Total species this season: 203
eBird checklist: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S56940066

Predictions:
Today was the last day of the official count. Raptors can continue to
migrate into June, especially on days of southwest winds, so if the
conditions are good keep looking up!

In August, watch for red-tailed hawks and other raptor dispersing on days
of southwest winds.

Come visit me at the Ashland Hawk Watch in Delaware from September through
November.

The Braddock Bay Hawk Watch 2020 season will begin on March 1st.

Hi~
Tifft Nature Preserve in Buffalo has a nesting pair of osprey on a platform
installed in 2012 by NYPA as part of their Habitat Improvement Projects. A
generous donation from the East Hill Foundation has allowed for the
installation of a nest monitoring camera over this past winter. It is live
through the Tifft website and Buffalo Museum of Science YouTube channel
<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uyQ_5co9XmY>. The 3 eggs just hatched in
the last week. They are more and more active each day!

At times there are other osprey individuals that visit the Preserve. This

I have not heard any confirmed reports of another nest within a close

The Buffalo Bird Report is a service provided
by your Buffalo Museum of Science and the
Buffalo Ornithological Society. To contact the
Science Museum, call 896-5200. Press the pound
key to report sightings before the end of this
report.

Highlights of reports received May 23 through
May 30 from the Niagara Frontier Region.

In the Iroquois Refuge, May 26, a rare, and
magnificent, AMER. WHITE PELICAN at Cayuga Pool
on Route 77.

Migrant warbler reports have faded as the month
closes, but CANADA WARBLER, BAY-BREASTED
WARBLER, TENNESSEE WARBLER and WILSON'S WARBLER
still found at Forest Lawn in Buffalo. Also,
GRAY-CHEEKED THRUSH and YELLOW-B. FLYCATCHER at
several locations. After midnight on May 30,
night flight calls of multiple GRAY-CHEEKED
THRUSH, SWAINSON'S THRUSH and COMMON NIGHTHAWK
were heard over Allentown in Buffalo. Now
greatly declining, one to two COMMON NIGHTHAWKS
were reported over Tonawanda, Buffalo and the
Niagara Peninsula of Ontario.

On Wilson Road in Ontario, May 25, four or more
EASTERN WHIP-POOR-WILLS were heard at the
Wainfleet Bog Nature Preserve.

Along the Lake Erie shore this week, single
WHIMBRELS on the offshore breakwalls at two
locations - the Erie Basin Marina in Buffalo
and at Dunkirk Harbor. Shorebirds on the north
shore beaches of Lake Erie in Ontario included

On May 19th, I noticed two cormorant nests in the trees with many
Double-crested Cormorants in Wilson harbor. About a week later, there were a
couple dozen nests. They have never been found nesting in this area before,
although large numbers have been roosting in the trees here during spring
migration for several years. Yesterday, the colony was completely abandoned.
Not a single bird in the trees. If anyone has any information about what
happened to these birds, please let me know.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Nations Rd.: Cuckoos etc.
Cuckoos are calling in the Nations Rd. area. I heard three Yellow-billed Cuckoos yesterday, one in the woods near the south end of nations Rd. and two in the woods along Roots Tavern Rd. (the stretch between the old railroad bed and nations Rd.). This morning I heard another Yellow-bill along Huston Rd. and at least two different Black-bills - in the wooded and wet areas downhill from the white silo and across from the field with the loan gray shed. There was an Alder Flycatcher singing on the wire in that area this morning, though there seem to be more Willow Flycatchers singing generally in that area.
There are certainly lots of Bobolinks in most of the grassland areas these days and a few Meadowlarks, but I’m not finding as many sparrows as in past years and Grasshopper Sparrows seen especially hard to find. I wonder if the tall frequently wet grass is influencing this.
I was entertained for a time watching two Meadowlarks perched on posts about 5 yards apart. They were doing their zzzt call and wiggling their tail.
We had a Lincoln’s Sparrow stop by our yard two or three days ago, a first for us. I only saw it once on the ground near the feeders. The same day we had an Indigo Bunting at the feeder; I saw several more in the trees down near the airfield.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Killdeer, water level, black-throated blue
Hi all- I’ve been meaning to write. About the same time as a couple other people reported a black-throated blue, I had one also visit my feeder in Irondequoit, which was a thrill. I had about 10 rose-breasted grosbeaks this year, more than ever before, and they stayed for about two weeks. Now for the sad part, which involves 2 killdeer nests that I had found and been checking - one on the beach in front of Rock Beach Rd East, where I work part time, and one on Summerville Beach. Sadly I have to report that both have been completely washed away. I realize that the birds will rebuild and lay more eggs but it is still disheartening. As of today, the long stretch of flat sand and grass - basically a floodplain - that stretches back from the Summerville Lake Ontario shore to where the hill sharply ascends was full of water; the first time I’ve ever seen this. I did not even see it in 2017. I’m still trying to figure out how to get pictures up on the public portion of Flickr so I can post some of my photos of sightings. Thanks to all for caring about nature and the birds. I always enjoy reading the reports.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Big Day - 5/27/19 - interesting best "bird"
    Yesterday, Kinsley Whittum and I ran our annual Big Day. It was a bit late and in an interesting spring migration, but we decided to run the usual route of recent years.The results were not stellar, a typical number of recent years, 150, but a fun day and ok with not a lot of advance scouting or preparation.            As usual, we started they day near home on Pellet Road in Webster, where we nearly always have E. Screech-Owl and sometimes something else. This year no cooperative screech-owl, but first bird of the day a calling Yellow-billed Cuckoo. Moving on, most of the night stops near Rochester and at Bergen Swamp then in the Iroquois NWR complex went very well, and we were over 30 species before first light; only Sora a miss. A bit before dawn we started into the Onondaga Trail at Iroquois, as usual, lots of song, especially thrushes and Ovenbirds. But after a brief pause at the bench near the red pine grove on the south side of the trail, we looked up the trail and caught a "what is this shape". With binoculars up, the "bird" of the day, but furry. A beautiful male fisher just wandering about in the trail! After a bit, a long bit for a fisher, it loped off to the north. Then shortly it bounded back into the trail near the same area and wandered around sniffing at the ground. Then looked our way and loped off into the woods to the south. Less than 50 yds. away. Neither of us have seen many in NY, and this was a good, long encounter. Made the day!    By a bit after 8:30 AM, we had worked our way through the Iroquois complex, and, in spite of the high water and limited lingering waterfowl, were over 100 species. From there to the Batavia Waste Water Treatment Plant, a bit disappointing, then on to the lakeshore at Point Breeze and east to Rochester. This year all of the focused looks for special birds went well and quickly, but the generalized, expected birds were not as easy. From there to Seneca Lake, good but down from recent reports due to holiday hordes on the water, then to the Empire Farm Days site, not mowed due to weather so no chance at Upland Sandpiper. Finally, Montezuma. Many interesting additions, but the usual lingerers scarce.Lots of shorebirds on the drawn down main pool and at Carncross Road. Going to Carncross, we found Savannah-Spring Lake Road closed from Van Dyne Spoor east to the stream, so we had to go to just north of the MAC and head east on Bixby Woods Road and finally Carncross. Great to see the Black-bellied Plover and American Golden-Plover in breeding plumage side by side. Back south to the Van Dyne Spoor woods and pools. Other than a Yellow-bellied Flycatcher, a wasted drive. Then home by Sodus Point hoping for some shorebirds or terns on the piers or beach; no. All in all a fun day.    Not sure if the closed Savannah-Spring Lake Road was due to just high water or a bridge problem. If the latter, it could be a longer-term problem. Just be aware in planning to visit Carncross Road until we have feedback on the situation.Bob Spahn, <rspahn...>

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Nesting prothontary Warblers: Doing the right thing
Sunday morning, we were at Montezuma NWR and were able to enjoy looks at
the nesting Prothonotary  Warblers _from a distance._

We thought we'd visit the site again after lunch and were saddened to
find a photographer on the edge of the road, not more than 15 ft.  from
the nest box.

Our remarks about how this behavior would interfere with the success of
the nesting birds were rebuffed......so we left.

There are any number of resources on the internet about responsible
observation and photography of nesting birds.   Here's just one

https://www.audubon.org/get-outside/audubons-guide-ethical-bird-photography

It's my sincere hope that this note will encourage people to 'do the
right thing'.

ps.  If someone shares the great shot they got of the nesting
Prothonotary Warbler on Sunday, let them know that there's a cost for
what they did.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Remembering Bill Symonds - BBBO Tomorrow
Braddock Bay Bird Observatory will be honoring Bill Symonds at our annual
picnic and Memorial Garden Ceremony on Wednesday evening (May 29th). In
addition to being a cherished member of the birding community, Bill was one
of the early banders at our station.

The picnic starts at 5:00 with socializing and munchies; we will eat at
5:30. The Remembrance will start around 6:15 or 6:30. All are welcome to
attend the picnic (bring a dish to share!), the ceremony, or both. We also
invite any who knew Bill to say a word or two in his honor. Afterwards,
many of us will join the Wednesday Birds-and-Brews at the KW brewery.

Location: 10 Braddocks Ave in Hilton (14468). Park on the street and walk
in; the ground is soggy, so avoid parking on people's lawns.

So, it's around 2:30 am, and I'm woken up to a solitary bird singing. Once
an a while we hear an occasional chirp in the middle of the night, but
this is actual song. I turned off our outdoor patio lights, but the singing
continues. Talk about an early bird!! Any ideas?

Hi all,

There’s an American White Pelican now at Cayuga Pool on Route 77. The pelican is perched on the left side of the pool, as far back as the bald eagle nest.

Good birds to all,

Weather:
Overcast and cool in the morning with periods of rain. A sudden shift to
clear skies mid-afternoon but a lake breeze kept it cool. Finally the
southwest winds overpowered and brought a very sudden temperature increase.
A late-day storm front passing to the north brought strong SW winds and a
huge push of migrants around 4pm EST.

Raptor Observations:
The majority of the raptor flight occurred in a 20 minute window around 4pm
EST as a storm going north of us brought strong SW winds. The push was
mostly broad-winged hawks with some turkey vultures and bald eagles plus
small numbers of other species such as kestrel, harrier, and sharp-shinned
hawk.

26 bald eagles helped us set a new season record for bald eagles (passing
previous record of 1,094).

Non-raptor Observations:
45+ common nighthawks, Philadelphia vireo.

New species for season: Black-billed cuckoo, alder flycatcher.
Total species this season: 203
eBird checklist: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S56734020

Predictions:
Sunday: Mix of sun and clouds then cloudy. High 20C. Winds WNW at

Monday: Mix of sun and clouds. High 16C. Winds N at 10-15km/h. Expect light
raptor migration.

Tuesday: Showers then cloudy. High 14C. Winds ENE at 15-25km/h. Expect

greetings . the warblers seemed to have moved through but i had a Clay-Colored Sparrow on Lakefront Blvd in Downtown Buffalo's inner harbor area, near where i found the Worm-eating warbler , yesterday on 5/23 . i tried to relocate today as i thought there might be 2 birds but no luck .. the entire area and those lovely tall grasses were being mowed .. it was not only a county bird for me, but a life-bird . i also had a Lincoln's sparrow in the same general area.

happy birding

One peregrine falcon. A lot of immature bald eagles hanging around and
flying around is making it hard to figure out when to count them.

Non-raptor Observations:
Wilson's snipe.

New species for season: Yellow-throated vireo
Total species this season: 201
eBird checklist: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S56693412

Predictions:
Saturday: Isolated thunderstorms in the morning then more widespread in the
afternoon. High near 25C. Winds SSE shifting SSW at 15-25km/h. Difficult to
predict. It will be better if the wind shifts more towards SW earlier. If
the cloud cover is too heavy then there might not be much of a flight. Rain
will interrupt the flight at various times. Hopefully the southerly winds
will bring a push of raptors at some point throughout the day. Southerly
winds overnight should bring a new batch of songbirds.

Sunday: Mostly cloudy. High 20C. Winds WNW at 15-25km/h. Expect light to
moderate raptor migration.

Monday: Intervals of clouds and sun. High 14C. Winds NE at 10-15km/h.
Expect light raptor migration. Count may be at Frisbee Hill

Bill and I were treated to a wonderful display by 4 Common Nighthawks this eve around 8:30. They were vocalizing and diving for insects and there was some interesting interactions between two of the birds. It only lasted for a few minutes but I haven’t seen this in years.

The Buffalo Bird Report is a service provided
by your Buffalo Museum of Science and the
Buffalo Ornithological Society. To contact the
Science Museum, call 896-5200. Press the pound
key to report sightings before the end of this
report.

Highlights of reports received May 16 through
May 23 from the Niagara Frontier Region.

A trio of rarities this week. Not much detail,
but a BROWN PELICAN was reported May 19 on the
Buffalo waterfront over the Erie Basin Marina.
Also the 19th, a first year male SUMMER TANAGER
at Greenwood Cemetery, in the Niagara County
Town of Wilson. And in the Tonawanda Wildlife
Management Area, May 20, two BLACK-NECKED
STILTS at North Feeder Marsh, across Route 77
from the Iroquois Refuge Kumpf Marsh.

Twenty-eight warbler species have been reported
during the last two weeks. This week, 10 to 20
species at several locations. Highlights were
ORANGE-CR. WARBLER and GOLDEN-WING. WARBLER at
Amherst State Park, with ORCHARD ORIOLE and
LINCOLN'S SPARROW. And, back on May 10, a rare
migration find - PROTHONOTARY WARBLER at Forest
Lawn Cemetery in Buffalo. Reports have picked-
up for later migrating warblers, at least this
season, MOURNING WARBLER, BLACKPOLL WARBLER,
CANADA WARBLER and WILSON'S WARBLER.

Another later migrant in Chautauqua County -
OLIVE-S. FLYCATCHER at the Dunkirk Airport with
over 22 EASTERN KINGBIRDS, and a second OLIVE-
S. FLYCATCHER at Canadaway Creek Nature
Sanctuary with ALDER FLYCATCHER and ten warbler
species.

Other recent reports - Multiple reports of
YELLOW-B. FLYCATCHER and GRAY-CHEEKED THRUSH,
including night flight calls of GRAY-CHEEKED
THRUSH and other thrushes heard over Tonawanda.
Also sightings of VEERY, SWAINSON'S THRUSH and
WOOD THRUSH. Two LEAST BITTERNS and WILLOW
FLYCATCHER at Tifft Nature Preserve in Buffalo.
And three BLACK-BILLED CUCKOOS at Wilson-
Tuscarora State Park on Lake Ontario.

There will be an evening BOS field trip this
Saturday, May 25, to the Wainfleet Bog Nature
Preserve in Ontario. The goal of the trip is to
hear the potential chorus of EASTERN WHIP-POOR-
WILLS after dark. Meet at 8 PM at Wilson and
Garringer Roads, north of Highway 3 in
Wainfleet, about 40 miles from the Peace Bridge
in Buffalo. Arrive early for daylight birding
around the unique peat bog area, and as always,
visitors are welcome on BOS trips.

You may report sightings after the tone. Thank
you for calling and reporting.

Official Counter: David Brown

Observers:

Visitors:
One dog walker at Frisbee Hill


Weather:
Mostly cloudy with moderate northeasterly winds. Moved to Frisbee Hill
after one hour at 9am EST.

Raptor Observations:
Some bald eagles hanging around the bay in the morning with no motivation
to migrate. A few bald eagles, a harrier, and a red-tail counted as
migrants.

Non-raptor Observations:
A small influx of eastern meadowlarks.

No new species for season.

eBird checklists:
Platform: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S56615143
Frisbee Hill: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S56623183

Predictions:
Thursday: Scattered thunderstorms then cloudy with thunderstorms. High 24C.
Winds S shifting SW at 25-40km/h. Difficult to predict because the flight
will depend on what happens with the thunderstorms. If we get periods of
some sun then the flight could pick up. Overall the winds are a good
direction and speed so it has the potential to be a good day, but the
thunderstorms and lack of sun could be a problem.

Friday: A mix of sun and clouds then cloudy. High 18C. Winds WNW at
15-30km/h. Expect light to moderate raptor migration.

Saturday: Thunderstorms. High 23C. Winds SSW at 15-30km/h. The winds are a
good direction again but the potential for rain and thunderstorms might
keep the totals low. Will keep an eye on the forecast as we get closer.

    Only time for a quick look in the firehouse woods, but some interesting birds, a few FOY for me.Bob Spahn, <rspahn...>
Firehouse Woods, Monroe, New York, US

Protocol: Traveling
0.2 mile(s)
Comments:    Just had a short time and had bumped into Dominic Sherony at Island Cottage Woods and heard of some interesting birds at the firehouse woods area. Just walking to cross the road from parking back of the church, I heard a song and for once was really sure Philadelphia Vireo and found the singer in the thin leaves high up. (It is a song that I have some trouble with certainty of at times.) Into the woods trails, I walked straight back to the flooded edge and then spished quietly and had many of the warblers I had heard about come right in for a close look. One of the first was a bonus, a female Cerulean and right down low.

Cerulean Warbler  1    This is actually not really a rare bird for the area or this location or date, just not often reported. This was a female at very close range. Small size, pale blue on top on the head, pale yellow wash to sides of the white under parts, prominent wing bars, short tail and white tail spots from below, etc. made ID easy.

Observers: Daena Ford, Dan Niven, Mike Tetlow, Shelly Rackovsky

Visitors:
8 plus 28 from SUNY ESF field ornithology class.


Weather:
Clear skies with moderate westerly winds.

Raptor Observations:
Moderate turkey vulture migration. Only one broad-winged hawk and a few
red-tails. A lot of bald eagles moving around locally plus some migrating.
Red-winged blackbirds were unhappy with the bald eagles and kept chasing
them.

Non-raptor Observations:
3 common nighthawks.

No new species for season.
Total species this season: 196 + 1 at Frisbee Hill.
eBird checklist: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S56599080

Predictions:
Wednesday: Overcast. High 14C. Winds ENE at 15-25km/h. Expect light raptor
migration. Count will likely be held at Frisbee Hill.

Thursday: Cloudy early with thunderstorms later. High 23C. Winds SW at
15-30km/h. Expect moderate to good raptor migration during periods of sun,
but expect interruptions from storms.

Friday: Partly cloudy. High 15C. Winds WNW at 15-30km/h. Expect light to
moderate raptor migration.

Saturday: Scattered thunderstorms. High 21C. Winds SSW at 15-30km/h. Good
winds but flight will depend on the timing and amount of rain.

A large number of Mississippi kites were reported in the mid-Atlantic
region today (Maryland and New Jersey especially). This doesn't necessarily
indicate that we will get more this far north but it is something to note
given the southerly winds forecast for Thursday and Saturday.

In Ontario NY, I’ve had Pine Siskins at my thistle feeders daily through May, with some days numbers as few as 6 and other days as many as 40.
The White Crowned Sparrows continue, but in decreasing numbers.
Other birds in my yard include Cape May Warbler in the cherry trees (May 15-19), Bay Breasted Warbler (5/19), Indigo Bunting (5/18), and a Common Nighthawk (5/19).

I stopped by Forest Lawn after a rough day at work!

Birds seen included:

2 Mourning Warblers, 1 Canada Warbler, 1 Yellow-bellied Flycatcher, 1
Gray-cheeked Thrush and 1 Swainson's Thrush.

I believe Kevin Rybczynski and several others also caught up with these
birds earlier in the day. There were few birders and photographers out
today - while quantity was lacking compared to the past couple of weeks,
the birds present were rather exciting.

Weather:
Warm with falling temperatures throughout the day. WSW winds that were
moderate in the morning and increasingly strong in the afternoon. Partly
sunny in the morning then overcast in the afternoon.

Raptor Observations:
An excellent morning flight that began at 7am EST and continued throughout
the morning but abruptly ended when the skies became heavy overcast in the
afternoon.

Continuous small kettles of broad-winged hawks (1,300) and turkey vultures
(683). Another huge flight of bald eagles on the strong WSW winds for a
total of 128 which is a new single-day record, breaking the previous record
of 124 that was set a few weeks ago on May 6th.

A sub-adult Mississippi kite soared over at 9:40am just off to the parkway
side and was seen by me (David Brown) and Mike Bergin.

Four black vultures were seen today, the first ones since March 24th,
giving us a total of 11 for the season. They came through as one early
individual then a single individual followed a few minutes later by a pair.

Non-raptor Observations:
4 sandhill cranes, virginia rail, black-bellied plover, 3 semipalmated
plovers.

New species for season: Semipalmated plover, Mississippi kite, bay-breasted
warbler
Total species this season: 196 at platform + 1 at Frisbee Hill (indigo
bunting)

Predictions:
Tuesday: Sunny. High 17C. Winds WNW at 15-30km/h. Light to moderate raptor
migration with difficult viewing due to the lack of clouds.

Wednesday: Partly cloudy then overcast. High 13C. Winds ENE at 15-25km/h.
Expect minimal raptor migration.

Thursday: Scattered thunderstorms. High 19C. Winds SSW at 15-30km/h. Expect
periods of moderate to good raptor migration during sunny periods between
storms.

Saturday is also looking good.

Hi all,

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Second part of previous post attempt - Huckelberry Swamp - 5/19/19
    Nice walk around Huckleberry Swamp on the first hot day of the month. No Acadian Flycatchers was the only really downside.Bob Spahn, <rspahn...>

Huckleberry Swamp, Wayne, New York, US

Comments:    Sue and I and Tom and Pat Smith visited Huckleberry Swamp and walked around the boardwalk and then down into the hemlock area on the SE corner. There was a fair collection of birds singing. The only real miss was no Acadian Flycatchers, though we
did not go to the far end of the hemlocks. Did a few Barred Owl calls in the hemlocks, and later had a family group way farther back in start calling. Did not do any more imitations.

    This morning in the yard we added three quick new yard birds - Scarlet Tanager, Swainson's Thrush, and Red-eyed Vireo.Yesterday, 5/18, a trip to the south end of Canadice Lake started very quiet, but then, when the sun came out, birdsong and activity picked up. Today, a visit to Huckleberry Swamp was interesting, though no Acadian Flycatchers. Lists below.Bob Spahn, <rspahn...>
Canadice Lake - southend trail, Ontario, New York, US

0.65 mile(s)
Comments:    Sue and I walked the southend trail slowly,with lots of spishing, owl imitations, etc. Birding slow at first, then picked up ith much singing from quite a few species. Also lots of sizable water snakes sunning along the trail. About 0.65 miles one way. Only added new species on the way back. Quite a few of the larger numbers are minimum counts that I would list as xx+, as trying to keep track of all the individuals was impossible.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Summer Tanager - Greenwood Cemetery, Town of Wilson, Niagara County
While doing the BOS May Count yesterday, Betsy Potter, Josh Ketry, and I
found a SUMMER TANAGER at Greenwood Cemetery. The bird was mostly in the
large spruce trees that are numerous in the cemetery and we could see that
it was successful at catching wasps or bees. The bird was a first year male
- mostly red with brownish wings and a creamy lower belly/vent. We heard the
"pit-ti-tuk" call and the robin-like song. You can see Josh's nice photos
here:

At nearby Wilson-Tuscarora SP, we had 18 species of warblers and three
BLACK-BILLED CUCKOOS. I rarely see this species in migration here, so this
was a nice surprise.



Good birding!

Willie
