Subject: Re: [GeneseeBirds-L] [cayugabirds-l] Unusually High Bluebird Mortalities in Nestboxes
I think it may also be hunger that is killing birds, due to the facts insects are scarce this year. Hot and cold weather might have messed up the emergence of the insects. Someone wrote they are seeing very few blackflies. Someone else told me that there are very few mosquitoes in the area which otherwise is infested with mosquitoes by this time. In some locations there are fewer dragonflies. So it is highly variable where the population is still healthy and where the populations have crashed.


The other day a Cardinal came inside my house while chasing a moth that had gotten into the house. He was so intent on catching it. Then for sometime he did not know how to go back. I gently moved him towards the door. This year I have seen cardinals in the grass and among garden plants in search of insects which otherwise is rare sight in my house.


Keep watch for insects.

Subject: Anyone else have lots of dead Eastern Bluebirds?
To: <BIRDBAND...><mailto:<BIRDBAND...>

I have over 300 nestboxes in Westchester County, NY, and have been banding the nesting bluebirds for the past 7 years.

This year we are experiencing a high mortality rate in the bluebirds.

Monitors open a nestbox and there is a dead adult bird in the box. The number of dead adults has risen to 18.

There is almost an equal number of dead males and females.

The birds are being tested by a laboratory at Cornell (Animal Health Diagnostic Center). While they suspect it might be a parasite, they have no answers yet.

Very strange that the birds go into the nestbox to die. I can understand if the female dies while spending time incubating on the nest, but the males seem to go into the box to die also. They are often found on eggs.

Who knows how many bluebirds have died that we don't know about. Our number of bluebird nest attempts and number of bands is down by about 40%. The rate of successful nests has crashed.

Hope no one else is having this problem, but would be most interested to know.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Black-necked Stilt - Iroquois NWR
The BLACK-NECKED STILT continues at Kumph Marsh, Iroquois NWR. The bird is
extremely difficult to see because of all the vegetation. Betsy and I walked
Feeder Road for the entire length of Kumph Marsh and did not see it. Then,
on the way back, Betsy spotted it where the vegetation was slightly lower.
The bird walked left and almost disappeared behind the vegetation before
making a short flight and completely disappearing for the remainder of our
time there. Another person looked after we left and did not see it. So, long
story short, you will need some persistence and/or a bit of luck to see this
bird.



Good birding!

A Marbled Godwin was seen at Sodus Point today. It was first seen about 10:30 this morning, last report I've seen was about 1:45 this afternoon.


The bird was first seen on the east pier. During my visit it flew to several spots on that pier, briefly onto the west pier, and over the beach.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Dickcissels
A message from Craig Corcoran advises that the three Dickcissels (2 males, 1 female) discovered by Ryan Griffiths were present this morning in Niagara in the small community of Fenwick, Ontario.

Directions:
From the QEW....exit at Regional Road 24 (Victoria Avenue). Drive south to Regional Road 669 (Eighth Avenue) then east to Fifteenth Street. Turn right here and continue south to the curve junction where 15th Street becomes Moyer Street. Look for the birds in flight and singing continuously from utility wires at the beginning of this curve in the road.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Allegany Co Ruffed Grouse
Today I had 2 nice encounters with Ruffed Grouse families
The first was on the N/S section of Gleason Rd, Belfast. Momma was tending her young in a tall grassy lane near the road. The chicks were active testing their wings while she stood guard, constantly purring/clucking. All I saw were 2 chicks but I could tell there were more.
The second encounter was in Hanging Bog WMA on the first N-S lane east of the bog. The mother was standing in the laneway when all at once a very tiny chick ran past her to the east side. Then 3 chicks started testing their wings on the west side. Mother checked on the first one then flew back across to the other 3.
For about 1/2 hour while I was eating my lunch, she was purring/clucking to her young 10 feet from me.

Hello Genesee Birders,

Saturday's Swamps Breeding Birds field trip was well attended with 18
participants. Our first stop was on Tonawanda WMA at the Meadville and
Sprout Marsh dikes, where we had 42 species, including a flyover
Black-crowned Night Heron, singing Yellow-throated Vireo, an Osprey family
with its nest adorned by Ox-eye Daises(!), families of Wood Ducks and
Hooded Mergansers and very nice looks at a singing male Prothonotary
Warbler on the dike between Meadville and Sprout Marshes. This location is
a bit farther on than the nesting pair that have become very quiet while
feeding 3 young in a nest box placed by NYS DEC. The DEC is working hard to
build this small population of nesting Prothonotaries, much to the delight
of the birding community! Old nest boxes have been replaced on both north
and south sides of Meadville dike and were monitored by DEC on Friday,
resulting in the discovery of three newly hatched young!

*An important note*, all observers are cautioned to refrain from using any
recordings during breeding season, and never use them on INWR refuge
property.

Our next stop highlighted the Tops Pond Purple Martin housing, where there
are 20 active Purple Martin nests. We had excellent scope views of males
and females. Males entertained by adding green leaves to nest cavities,
with one male even catching a dropped leaf mid-air. Savannah Sparrows were
heard close by this location.

On the way to Cayuga Pool, at Cinnamon Marsh, Tonawanda WMA, a large
collection of Great Egrets were seen feeding.

Our third stop, Cayuga Pool, showed off 25 species, including Bald Eagle,
Great Egret, Black Tern, Common Gallinule, American Coot, Virginia Rail,
American Bittern, the long present pair of tagged Trumpeter Swans and a
young family of Pied-billed Grebes, always a joy to see.

Next we visited Kumpf Marsh, the Cayuga sub-impoundment, which is
experiencing a draw down so it can soon be groomed for fall shorebird
season. Thirty-four species were seen here, including two feeding adult
Sandhill Cranes, along with Spotted Sandpiper, Killdeer, Black Tern and the
big surprise of the return appearance of the rare for the region
BLACK-NECKED STILT! You've gotta wonder where this bird has been since last
being seen on May 23. Be sure to post if you see this bird! Nearby Kumpf,
we saw nesting Great-crested Flycatchers.

Our next stop on the north side of Roberts Road, INWR, was a large
grassland field with many pairs of singing Bobolinks, each defending its
territory. We were able to hear Eastern Meadowlark here, but did not
actually see it until we parked close to the Roberts Road corner on Sour
Springs Road. The meadowlark was perched in the hedgerow of trees, singing
its 'Spring of the Year' song. Eastern Meadowlarks, like many grassland
birds seem to be in short supply, a worrying trend.

Onondaga Trail did not disappoint today with 38 species and provided a cool
woodland break from the by-this-time-of-day 85 degree temperature. Here we
had two singing Acadian Flycatchers when we reached the Hemlock stands.
Other singing notable birds were Ovenbird, Northern Waterthrush, Scarlet
Tanager, Hooded Warbler, Black-throated Green Warbler, and distant Cerulean
Warbler.

Some of us continued on to Swallow Hollow Trail after the morning and with
much worthwhile neck-craning effort came up with views of a male Cerulean
along the boardwalk heading south in a Swamp Oak Tree and an Ovenbird
toward the back of the trail.

It is worth noting that the INWR is the only refuge in Western New York and
the Friends of Iroquois do much to support the refuge mission and
appreciate the bird watching community's membership support! Writing to
your representatives about supporting your refuge never hurts either, as
cutbacks have been quite severe.

Many thanks to all who attended this trip!

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] BOS Tillman Rd. WMA Field Trip
Eli and I pre-ran the BOS trip we are leading on 7/1. The checklist is below. We did manage to see one Upland Sandpiper and two Grasshopper Sparrows.

We will meet up at 7:30 at the parking lot that is 400 feet east of the intersection of Shisler and Tillman Rds in Clarence, NY in Erie County.

The weather was quite pleasant today, with a nice breeze to moderate the heat, but not enough to ground the birds. Please plan on the possibility of it being quite hot with still air. I would plan to bring water or another cold beverage. A hat is a good idea, too. Much of the trip will be in open areas. The bugs were nearly nonexistent, today, but it can be quite buggy there in the woodsy portions of the area. Bug spray is recommended- as is sunscreen.

The trip will start off with a fairly brief walk down to where Tillman Rd cuts through the swamp to look for marsh birds.

We will then walk up the abandoned part of Shisler Rd toward the fields where the UPSA and GHSP are typically found. Today, we found a much higher number of Bobolinks than I have ever seen there before. The one target species we missed was Eastern Meadowlark and we didn't see any Savannah Sparrows today, either. Please be aware that this portion of the field trip does go briefly onto non-public lands. Many birders who go to the area go to this part and I don't know of anyone who has ever gotten in trouble for being there. Nonetheless, please be respectful.

We will then join back up with the official trail, moving through some wooded areas and more fields. We will be traveling back through the parking lot for anyone who needs to leave early.

After that, we will cross Tillman Rd and walk the trails in the northern half of the area, them wrapping up at the parking lot, again.

Today's walk was 2.9 miles. We will be going just a bit further on the trip (Eli and I were a tiny bit short on time and didn't go the marsh). The terrain is fairly moderate most of the way. This is a half-day trip, which may well wrap up between 11 am and noon.

Hope to see a number of you there!

A rising wave has a lot of joy.
When the wave is falling,
there may be some anxiety
about the ending of the wave.
But if the wave practices meditation
and realizes she is water,
then she can collapse and tumble with joy.
She may die as a wave,
But she will always
be alive as water.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Herons etc. at Feeder Rd.
The shelties and I took a walk at Iroquois from Route 77 onto the Feeder
Rd trail early this morning, and the number of Great Blue Herons and
Great Egrets blew me away. Maybe this is old news to most, but since I
see no high numbers of these species on recent e-Bird reports, I thought
I would share.

As I first got to the road off the parking lot trail and onto Feeder, I
saw a very significant number of both species off to my left and began
counting. Whether it was a coincidence or my disturbance, I don't know,
but most suddenly flew up. I chose to focus on counting the Great Blues
and got to 98 before the swirling mass got out of sight. I suspect I
missed a fair percentage of them. And as I walked north along the road,
many more were flushed from the vegetation to my left, and many more
flew overhead. I did not add any of these to my count, but in my gut I
suspect these were not part of the 98 I had tallied. As I walked back,
24 Great Egrets remained, but I am sure that that is only a small
portion of the total actually there at the outset.

Really, really impressive thing to see.

I was also surprised to find yet another Acadian Flycatcher up the road
in the wet woods. I keep encountering them this year, but this was the
first time I found one that was not in an obvious stand of hemlocks.
Also, a Black-crowned Night-heron in almost exactly the same spot I saw
one a few weeks back, flying over the road not too far south of where
the road enters the woods.

Jun 16, 2017 6:30 AM - 7:55 AM
Protocol: Traveling
1.2 mile(s)
Comments: Walked from the parking lot just off Rt77 through the
marshy area and then up along the road through the woods into the open
area beyond. Far more singing on the way back. However, the highlight
was the high concentration of Great Blue Herons and Great Egrets when I
first arrived. They were mostly to the south of where the trail from
the parking lot meets Feeder Rd, towards Rt 77, but that area is only
visible with considerable effort from Rt 77. Counts of the herons and
egrets represent only the most I was able to see at one time, although I
suspect the total number seen was considerably higher.
<dbemont...>
49 species

Canada Goose 9
Mallard 34
Great Blue Heron 98 High concentration in the marshy area south of
where the trail to the parking lot meets Feeder Rd. As I was trying to
count them, most flew up, and the photo I snapped includes maybe half of
them. I counted individually, although I know I missed some in the
swirl. Then I added to the count those still visible at the water.
Through much of my walk, I flushed herons from the vegetation, and more
flew over, but I did not add these to the count because I have no way of
knowing the extent to which these were the same birds moving ahead of me
to the north.
Great Egret 24 High concentration in marshy area south of where the
trail to the parking lot meets Feeder Rd. I did my best to count them,
but at the peak moment, I chose to focus on Great Blues and probably
missed a lot of Great Egrets. Nonetheless, on my return trip there were
at least 24, counted individually.
Green Heron 1
Black-crowned Night-Heron 1 Flew up from near the trail just north
of the S curve, prior to entering the woods.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] "Shorebirds" and others, Tillman Rd WMA
Today I heard one distant Upland Sandpiper at Tillman. As mentioned earlier
by David Mark, they seem to be particularly scarce in our area this year. I
suspect that the habitat at Tillman may not last long, as there seems to be
a great deal of Dog Strangling Vine invading the area. . .

Other shorebirds included 4 Killdeer, 2 Spotted Sandpipers and 1 American
Woodcock. There were at least 5 Eastern Meadowlarks and 5 Bobolinks.
Sparrows included 2 Swamp, 1 Field, 7 Song and at least 9 Savannah.

In addition 2-3 sparrows in rather short grass that I suspect were
Grasshopper Sparrows, but never sang, only making short buzzy call notes.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Rose-breasted Grosbeak
We had a male RBG at the feeder a few minutes ago. We usually get one a year (passing through when the warblers are passing through). We did have one this year at the feeder (on May 11) at the same time as some yellow-rumped warblers in the yard.  June 14 seems late to me to be seeing one; is it possible that it is nesting in the area? We live in Greece (390 / Vintage Lane area).

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Honeoye Warblers
While conducting bird surveys in the Honeoye Inlet WMA (habitat restoration
site) this morning, I had a singing CERULEAN WARBLER in the bottomland
hardwoods near what they refer to as the North Culvert. Later on I had
another singing south of the intersection of Cross Rd and Old West Lake Rd
S. On my return along East Lake Road, there was a singing MOURNING WARBLER
right along the road about 0.6 mi up from its intersection with West Lake
Rd, a few hundred feet south of a small DEC parking area that's on the east
side of East Lake Rd.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Laughing Gull at Braddock Bay
A very cooperative Laughing Gull has spent at least two days hanging around the Braddock Bay area, visible from the hawk watch platform. I say cooperative because there are thousands of gulls hanging around the new breakwall at the edge of the bay, and if the bird had chosen to hang with those distant birds, it would have been much harder to pick out. Instead, whenever we did see it circling up the bay (going about as far upstream as the "eagle" tree) it was generally the closest bird to us.

The hot SW winds were favorable for a continuous trickle of Broad-winged Hawks, Red-tailed Hawks and Turkey Vultures. Lots of good birding eyes on the platform but alas, no Mississippi or Swallow-tailed Kites were found.

Even with the lake levels so high, there is some sand beach developing on the inshore side of the breakwall. I have high hopes for at least some, albeit distant, shorebird habitat out there this fall.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Acadian Flycatchers
The shelties and I took a walk through the wet woods area along Culver
Road earlier this morning, and although things were fairly quiet, I was
surprised to hear an Acadian Flycatcher singing.

That's three locations in Orleans County in the past month -- the west
end of Lakeside SP and private land on Eagle Harbor-Waterport Rd being
the other two. They were seen at the latter location last year, but
this makes two additional spots. (In every case among a stand of
hemlocks.)

Not sure whether they are more widespread this year, or just
happenstance to find them.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Laughing Gull - Hamlin Beach
Friday evening there was an adult Laughing Gull at Hamlin Beach, with the (mostly Ring-billed) gull flock on the beach in front of area 4. Perhaps one of the birds from Point Breeze. Unfortunately, shortly after I noticed it, the flock was flushed up by a beachgoer and half of them, including the Laughing Gull, disappeared and did not return. Further disruptions by walkers and dogs left the beach empty and a smaller number of gulls on the water by the time I left. The weekend will likely prove challenging for gulls hoping to find a resting spot there.

Subject: Re: [GeneseeBirds-L] European birds field guide
We have been using "Birds of Europe: With North Africa and the Middle East"
written and illustrated by Lars Jonsson from Helm Field Guides for many
years. Some of the illustrations tend to show the birds a little rounder and
more compact than they might appear in the field, but overall we're
satisfied with it.

You might check local bookshops when you're there. We have an Italy-specific
"Peterson" guide that we found locally, and it's useful for focusing on
birds that are most likely to be found in Italy.

There's also an Android mobile app called Ornithopedia Europe. It allows
you to set country and language. Then you can search by name (optionally by
Latin name) or appearance and bring up photos, automatically connect to
xeno-canto.org for calls and connect to a variety of birding and other web
sites for further information.
(https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.ornithopedia.Europe&hl=en
)

Enjoy your trip.

Any suggestions on a good field guide? We will be on the Mediterranean

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Chaut Co, hummers
A Ruby-throated Hummingbird, female, first visited my feeder this year on May 15. (First visit last year was on May 14.)
One female or one male at a time have stopped to feed sporadically since then.
Most of a half-cup of sugar-water has been consumed in the last three days by the pair of Baltimore Orioles that perch on the hummer feeder before or after stopping at the grape jelly feeder.
Twice, a hummer stopped at the jelly feeder. A pair of Gray Catbirds also use the jelly feeder and regularly stop for some suet cake.
Merlins are again active in the village of Lakewood, for at least the seventh consecutive year. The first sighting this year was February 19, when one flew over my house. I see or hear one or sometimes two Merlins on about half of the days that I am in my yard or walking in the village.

I own "Birds of Europe: second addition" by Princeton Field Guides. I've used it while in Europe and it is quite easy to learn. It's a painted guide, so no photographs, but does have range maps, descriptions of the birds, and tips on identifying songs. One thing that I particularly like about it is the fact that similar species are compared on the same page (ie. European Treecreeper vs. Short-toed Treecreeper). For the price it's a very good buy.

Good Luck,

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Franklin's Gull
Andy first texted the presence of the Franklin's Gull mid-morning. Five hours later, despite beach walkers, dogs, the doctor who kept me waiting a bit and all those mysterious invisible things that make gulls want to fly away, the bird was still at parking area three, right where Andy had seen it this morning. I had perhaps 15 minutes with the gull before the next mysterious invisible thing came by and the bird flew west, not to be seen again. Even got a couple of lousy, but diagnostic pictures.

Ring-necked Pheasant was the target bird of the day, so it was a pleasure to hear three (finally!). Always nice to be immersed in Bobolink shenanigans and the buzzy sounds of Savannah and Grasshopper Sparrows.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Franklin's Gull - Hamlin Beach
This morning there was a subadult Franklin's Gull at Hamlin Beach - last
seen loafing with the gull/tern flock on the beach just west of area 3.
Looks close to a breeding adult but the black hood is incomplete (lots of
white around the face) and less white in the wings than a full adult.

Subject: Re: [GeneseeBirds-L] Hummingbirds
After several visits at my window a week ago, I felt compelled to get a
feeder up ASAP.
Within 2 minutes of filling it, I had a female using it.

While I have tried to distinguish them, its pretty hard. I have had
continuous visits by at least
2 females and 2-3 males. The feeder was up last Thursday, and the males
showed up by Saturday.

There have not been the extended battles I recall from last year, but there
have been displays and
skirmishes going on a few days, although things have settled down now.

I would not suspect that visitation is lower than usual, but it is possible
the count is down a few from
last year.

Nearly anytime of the day until last light, I can expect a visit within a
few minutes. I'm using the
simplest of feeders--just four flowers on an 8 ounce reservoir--which was
just enough to get through
the week.

We have not seen the usual numbers of hummers in Holley either.  We first saw at least 1 on May 16 that has been coming sporadically to our feeders. Not sure if it is male or female since we haven't seen it in the sunlight.

We usually have 2 pair--each lives on one side of our property. They come at approximately 2pm, when I change the feeder each day. It is in the shade by then, as well. The pairs take turns through the afternoon and evening.  This year we have sporatic visits after 5pm...with little or no consistency. I will continue to provide fresh feed, and cross my fingers that activity picks up. A female has been coming the past two days.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] hummingbirds
I had a couple of hummingbirds who were initially quite active at the feeder
a couple of weeks ago in 14051. For the last two weeks it seems they are not coming to the feeder.
and I haven't laid eyes on them either. This has happened before. Once my trumpet vine opens up
then they are here all the time in the yard, and there are great territorial duels. This particular vine is more a
late seasonal bloomer, although I do have other plantings they enjoy.

Very few as of June 7 in my area of WNY Zipcode 14070. I did have 1 male + 1 female Hummingbird but once our weather turned chilly & rainy I have not seen them at the nectar feeders. Unusual for my yard.

At our hummer feeders in Wilson, Niagara County, we always get some action but typically we do not get a lot in May, or even early June. I don?t notice much difference this year. Activity at the feeder seems to gradually pick up during the summer. My suspicion has always been that the hummers prefer natural food resources at this time of the year.



Good birding!

I finally saw a male come to our feeders in Orchard Park this morning - and, otherwise, we've only been getting a couple of visits per day, which is very unusual. I've had several sightings in local parks and preserves, including a female on nest, though.
Other than Martha's report, the few folks I've talked to have said their feeder visits have been down too. I wonder how the season will turn out overall, with a larger population study, perhaps using eBird data. At the moment from my limited perspective, it seems to be a concerning year for them.

I have friends in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, who have fed birds in their backyard for decades. In one of their recent emails to me they mentioned they have seen very few Hummingbirds at their nectar feeder this Spring. They usually get several so this is unusual for them.

Subject: Re: [GeneseeBirds-L] Hummingbirds
I haven't seen my usual hummingbird numbers. I had one come to the feeder early on, and it hasn't been back. Very unusual for my yard. (south end of Conesus Lake) I have always had at least one pair, but this year it was only one lone male and he hasn't returned.

Very few as of June 7 in my area of WNY Zipcode 14070. I did have 1 male + 1 female Hummingbird but once our weather turned chilly & rainy I have not seen them at the nectar feeders. Unusual for my yard.

At our hummer feeders in Wilson, Niagara County, we always get some action but typically we do not get a lot in May, or even early June. I don?t notice much difference this year. Activity at the feeder seems to gradually pick up during the summer. My suspicion has always been that the hummers prefer natural food resources at this time of the year.



Good birding!

Willie

I finally saw a male come to our feeders in Orchard Park this morning - and, otherwise, we've only been getting a couple of visits per day, which is very unusual. I've had several sightings in local parks and preserves, including a female on nest, though.
Other than Martha's report, the few folks I've talked to have said their feeder visits have been down too. I wonder how the season will turn out overall, with a larger population study, perhaps using eBird data. At the moment from my limited perspective, it seems to be a concerning year for them.

I have friends in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, who have fed birds in their backyard for decades. In one of their recent emails to me they mentioned they have seen very few Hummingbirds at their nectar feeder this Spring. They usually get several so this is unusual for them.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Shorebirds - Town of Somerset and migrants in our yard
Yesterday, I bumped into Joel Strong and Jonathon Weber out at the flooded
fields on Lower Lake Road and Burgess Road in the Town of Somerset. They
were loaded with shorebirds! We counted:

285 Semipalmated Sandpipers

12 Semipalmated Plovers

7 Short-billed Dowitchers (6 griseus and one hendersoni)

5 Dunlin

1 White-rumped Sandpiper

Killdeer and Spotted Sandpipers

1 second-cycle Lesser Black-backed Gull



I also checked Youngstown-Wilson Rd in the Town of Wilson and had 16
Semipalmated Sandpipers.



This morning as I was driving up the driveway, I noticed some birds so I got
out and had one SWAINSON'S THRUSH, one GRAY-CHEEKED THRUSH, and one CANADA
WARBLER.



Good birding!

6/3/17  The 1st year Red-throated Loon (still no red on throat) was again seen swimming on the west side of the pier below the lighthouse.  I'm curious to see if it stays beyond the 6/5 date that is given in the 2012 BOS Verification Guide.  If I continue to see it, I'll continue reporting.  There is also one duck that looks like a Redhead to me (maybe a 1st year bird?? or female??) that has been there for quite some time. Carol Hardenburg Portland, NY Chautauqua County

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Macedon Least Bitterns and other marsh birds - 6/2/17
      Friday evening I did my usual Marsh Monitoring at a marsh on Magog Road between Yellow Mills Rd and Canandaigua Rd a couple of miles south of Macedon. This marsh has generally been pretty quiet other than Swamp Sparrows and occasional Virginia Rails. This year I had a first time Pied-billed Grebe calling, actually up to 3, then 3 Least Bitterns, and finally 2 Virginia Rails. This was about 7:30 PM. Not sure if the increased activity is due to high water elsewhere or to my doing this count a week to 10 days earlier than most years past.Bob Spahn, <rspahn...>

The Brown Pelican has returned to its usual haunts on the Niagara River
today, being seen on one of the buoys by Alec Humann around 1:00 today.



DIRECTIONS:

Heading southbound on I-190, exit at Ontario Street. Turn left at the end of
the ramp, then make the first left onto Black Rock Harbor Road to access the
waterfront, just before the on-ramp to get on the I-190 northbound. Black
Rock Harbor Road takes you back under the I-190. Proceed to the right down
Aqua Lane, park, and look for the bird.




Heading northbound on I-190, exit at Austin Street. Turn right at the end of
the ramp, then immediately turn left onto Niagara Street. Drive about mile
and turn left onto Black Rock Harbor Road to access the waterfront, just
before the on-ramp to get on the I-190 northbound. Black Rock Harbor Road
takes you back under the I-190. Proceed to the right down Aqua Lane, park,
and look for the bird.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Geneseo & Conesus Inlet
There was a lot of Crow and Blue Jay noise this morning near University Dr.
and Wadsworth St. in Geneseo; in investigating I saw Crows chasing after a
Peregrine Falcon. I've seen peregrines a couple times soaring over in
migration, but this a first for the immediate neighborhood.

Yesterday afternoon, at the Indian Fort Preserve I saw a single Red-winged
Blackbird harassing an immature Bald Eagle, flying rather low over the
adjacent farm field.
other birds of special interest in the Indian Fort area included:
Downy Woodpecker 3 (2 males and a female chasing about)
E. Wood-Pewee 1
Yellow-throated Vireo 2
E. Bluebird 2
Hooded Warbler 1
Field Sparrow 2

Earlier I took a drive around the inlet swamp area of Conesus Lake. Birds
of special interest included:
Wood Duck 15+
Pied-billed Grebe 1
Bald Eagle 2 juveniles on the nest
Common Gallinule 3
Belted Kingfisher 3
E. Kingbird 1 (sitting on a nest in one of the small islets out from the
first board walkout)
Cliff Swallow 8 (at the barn, Gultner & W. Swamp Rds.)
Magnolia Warbler 1
Chestnut-sided Warbler 2 (E. Swamp Rd.)
Indigo Bunting 2

As it turns out, the Buffalo Brown Pelican was seen early on Friday but apparently not afterwards. In addition, there were no reports today, though several people looked.



Thanks to those birders who provided updates.

Late this Friday afternoon, I saw this same male WILSON’S PHALAROPE again. As two days ago, it was in the closest puddle to the road. Views were frequently obstructed by grasses but by standing just opposite the puddle, I could usually see it from the road. A DUNLIN and a SEMIPALMATED SANDPIPER were in the same puddle. Earlier in the day, around 11:30, the only shorebirds I found here were the usual Killdeer and Spotted Sandpipers.

Late this afternoon, I found a WILSON’S PHALAROPE on Youngstown-Wilson Road, west of Fitch Road. The bird was in the closest puddle to the road but views were still often obstructed by grass. The bird flew and I lost sight of it and could not refind it. There are a few other puddles in the field that are similarly very difficult to see into so it could still be around. There were also two Dunlin there in a further puddle and three unidentified small shorebirds in a third puddle.

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 25 through
June 1 from the Niagara Frontier Region.

An immature BROWN PELICAN on the upper Niagara
River off Riverside in Buffalo was the big
story of the week. Present since at least May
28, the pelican has been observed from Aqua
Lane and Black Rock Park, also known as the
Ontario Street Boat Launch. Unlike the rare but
annually occurring AMER. WHITE PELICAN, there
are only four previous records of BROWN PELICAN
in the past 45 years.

Back on May 22, an endangered PIPING PLOVER in
the Niagara County Town of Somerset, in a field
at Lower Lake and Burgess Roads. On the 25th, a
FRANKLIN'S GULL at the same location.

Other shorebird highlights this week - two RED-
NECKED PHALAROPES with the BLACK-NECKED STILT
at Kumpf Marsh in the Iroquois Refuge. WILSON'S
PHALAROPE along Youngstown-Wilson Road, west of
Fitch Road in Niagara County. At the Batavia
Waste Water Plant, five WHIMBRELS departed from
the first pond. And five RED KNOTS, briefly
stopped at the Erie Basin Marina in Buffalo.

Elusive YELLOW-BR. CHAT heard at Wilson-
Tuscaurora State Park in Niagara County, and
another YELLOW-BR. CHAT and eight WHIP-POOR-
WILLS heard after sunset on Wilson Road, at the
Wainfleet Bog in Ontario.

The Onondaga Trail at Sour Springs Road in the
Iroquois Refuge is one the unique habitats in
the refuge. On the 23rd, several each of BARRED
OWL, YELLOW-B. SAPSUCKER and ACADIAN
FLYCATCHER, plus migrant LINCOLN'S SPARROW and
numbers of COMMON NIGHTHAWKS.

Other reports this week - three PROTHONOTARY
WARBLERS in the Tonawanda Wildlife Management
Area Meadville Road Marshes. YELLOW-B.
FLYCATCHER at Forest Lawn in Buffalo. RED-
HEADED WDPKR. at the Seneca Manor in West
Seneca. And, GRAY-CHEEKED THRUSH, SWAINSON'S
THRUSH and VEERY heard during night migration
over Tonawanda.

The Bird Report will be updated Thursday
evening, June 8. Please call in your sightings
by noon Thursday. You may report sightings
after the tone. Thank you for calling and
reporting.

Weather:
Mostly strong NNW winds and strong gusts. Partly cloudy with midday clear.
Low temp 52, high 59.

Raptor Observations:
Slow day with 37 birds counted. The joy and excitement emanating from Barb
the Bander more than made up for the disappointment of missing the adult
Northern Goshawk that was captured and banded.

Non-raptor Observations:


Predictions:
Moderately strong WNW winds, clear skies, high of 64. Probably not many
birds.

It has also been seen on the more distant green buoy number 7, where a scope is helpful. If you have a little time, the bird makes rather frequent foraging flights that bring it much closer to the Ontario Street boat launch/Aqua Lane viewing site. It often feeds with or near the cormorants.

In the days that followed counts of 91, 90 and today's 77 have contributed to the new season total of 1012!!! No promises, but, tomorrows' forecast, if it holds, may present one of the last good flights to contribute more to this already historic total. Mike Tetlow

Visitors:
A nice woman from Illinois. Bridget, Mike T, the fifth Mike,aka Cinco, did
a great job with some very high and far birds.


Weather:
Mild to moderate SSW winds shifting to very light lake breeze, NNE, at
1230, then shifting to W at 1600. Lake effect hours also had the least
cloud cover, 40 to 20%. Low temp 60, high 71. The NNE winds were light
enough to not push birds too far S.

Raptor Observations:
Another Bald Eagle day with 9 in the air right behind us at once and a
stream of 6 not long after the 9 departed. The southern birds had a very
good year.

Non-raptor Observations:
1 Sandhill Crane and the pleasant all day singing from the resident
passerines.

Predictions:
Strong WSW winds with a chance for mid-day thunderstorm. Should be a decent
raptor day.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Brown Pelican continues in Buffalo
The Brown Pelican was still at its usual haunts on the Niagara River in
Buffalo this morning. It was observed on the green buoy number 5 today. It
has also been seen on the more distant green buoy number 7, where a scope is
helpful. If you have a little time, the bird makes rather frequent foraging
flights that bring it much closer to the Ontario Street boat launch/Aqua
Lane viewing site. It often feeds with or near the cormorants.



DIRECTIONS:

Heading southbound on I-190, exit at Ontario Street. Turn left at the end of
the ramp, then make the first left onto Black Rock Harbor Road to access the
waterfront, just before the on-ramp to get on the I-190 northbound. Black
Rock Harbor Road takes you back under the I-190. Proceed to the right down
Aqua Lane, park, and look for the bird.




Heading northbound on I-190, exit at Austin Street. Turn right at the end of
the ramp, then immediately turn left onto Niagara Street. Drive about mile
and turn left onto Black Rock Harbor Road to access the waterfront, just
before the on-ramp to get on the I-190 northbound. Black Rock Harbor Road
takes you back under the I-190. Proceed to the right down Aqua Lane, park,
and look for the bird.



Thanks to Canadian birder, Jeremy Bensette, looking from the Canadian side
of the river, for the update.



Good birding!

Today, there was a female wood duck with 5 ducklings at Lac de Ville, a man-made drainage pond in Brighton. It is the first time I have seen a wood duck there.

Unfortunately, there are also two Canada goose families with about 10 goslings between them. They are very messy!

Hi Everyone,

Robert Buckert and I finished our report from our Big Day in Genesee,
Orleans, and Monroe Counties last Saturday. The report can be read below,
granted that the google doc allows access to open (pdf file messes with the
format too much). All in all, we totaled 151 species for a little over 20
hours spent birding. It was a magnificent day! If anyone interested has an
trouble opening the attachment, just send me a quick email and we can
figure something out. Enjoy!!

P.S...It's a little lengthy...

Happy Birding,

Nick Kachala

Hello all,

Yesterday afternoon two Red-necked Phalaropes were seen at Kumpf Marsh

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Franklin's Gull, shorebirds - Niagara and Orleans Counties
After the drenching rain this morning, Joel Strong and I got out to look
over the fields to see what shorebirds, if any, had dropped in.



On Youngstown-Wilson Road, just west of Fitch, there were:

75 Dunlin

11 Least Sandpipers

3 White-rumped Sandpipers

100 Semipalmated Sandpipers

18 Short-billed Dowitchers

2 Spotted Sandpipers



On the Lower Lake Road - Burgess Road join, there were:

2 American Wigeon

1 Semipalmated Plover

56 Dunlin

1 Least Sandpiper

1 White-rumped Sandpiper

46 Semipalmated Sandpipers

9 Short-billed Dowitchers

2 dowitcher species (possibly Long-billed)

The highlight here was a FRANKLIN'S GULL with a few hundred Ring-billed and
Herring Gulls. Unfortunately, it did not stay long, as an immature Bald
Eagle came over and all the gulls flew off. It was probably a second-cycle
bird, though possibly an adult that had not yet molted in its hood. Poor
photos were obtained: http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S37144462



On the Orleans County side of Niagara-Orleans Countyline Road, there were:

4 Black-bellied Plovers

75 Dunlin

55 Semipalmated Sandpipers



On Lower Lake Road, just east of Johnson Creek Road, there were:

10 Black-bellied Plovers

19 Dunlin

2 dowitcher species (seen very briefly)



Good birding!

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] little blue heron
The Little blue heron was still at Kings Bend Park, Pittsford as of 1pm this afternoon. After searching w/no luck for 10 min or so it flushed from a tree across the pond (viewing from parking area) when a train went by. It provided good binocular looks as it circled a couple times over the far shore & then it landed in a tree again w/not so good views.

I'll be leading the annual spring bird walk sponsored by the Genesee Valley
Conservancy in the Nations Rd. area this Saturday morning. We'll be
meeting at 7:30 am at the Jaycox Creek & culvert area, about a mile or so
down hill from where Nations Rd. meets Rte. 39 (Avon Rd.). We will
search that area for a little while, but then look mostly for grassland and
other birds of special interest along Nations, Roots Tavern & Huston Roads
and Oxbow Lane . Species of special interest may include Willow
Flycatcher, Rough-winged Swallow, Bluebird, Field, Savannah, Vesper and
Grasshopper Sparrows, Meadowlark, Orchard Oriole, Bobolink and many more -
whatever shows up. This is always a rather relaxed trip, mostly along the
roads, but we might walk short distances off road. Everyone is welcome;
extra expertise and spotting scopes would be very welcome.
I'll have a cell phone with me: 585-519-9211

The Little Blue Heron that was found yesterday at Kings Bend Park in
Pittsford was relocated at the same pond a few minutes ago. The bird
appears to be in a healthy state as it foraged in the pond and even caught
a fish. There were fishermen around, and one walked towards it, and the
bird moved several times around the pond, but fortunately did not fly away.

Happy Birding,

A new eBird hotspot has been created for Kershaw Park on Lakeshore Drive in

merging it with the hotspot, or using the hotspot to report birds going
forward. Here's a link to the page where there's a map in the upper right

I was able to get the bird around 6:30 PM and viewed the bird for over ten
minutes. In that time, the bird caught at least 11 fish! So yes, the bird
seems to be foraging healthily. Lets hope it is fulfilling its nutritional
requirements that would usually come from fish in its normal range. It is a
beautiful adult breeding plumage bird, more rare in upstate New York than
immature LBHEs. Found in the second, farther back pond, on the opposite end
from the parking lot. - Kings Bend Park, Pittsford, NY.


Good Birding,

Robert Buckert

a fish. There were fishermen around, and one walked towards it, and the
bird moved several times around the pond, but fortunately did not fly away.

Happy Birding,
Nick Kachala

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] GVC Nations Rd. walk this Saturday
I'll be leading the annual spring bird walk sponsored by the Genesee Valley Conservancy in the Nations Rd. area this Saturday morning. We'll be meeting at 7:30 am at the Jaycox Creek & culvert area, about a mile or so down hill from where Nations Rd. meets Rte. 39 (Avon Rd.). We will search that area for a little while, but then look mostly for grassland and other birds of special interest along Nations, Roots Tavern & Huston Roads and Oxbow Lane . Species of special interest may include Willow Flycatcher, Rough-winged Swallow, Bluebird, Field, Savannah, Vesper and Grasshopper Sparrows, Meadowlark, Orchard Oriole, Bobolink and many more - whatever shows up. This is always a rather relaxed trip, mostly along the roads, but we might walk short distances off road. Everyone is welcome; extra expertise and spotting scopes would be very welcome.
I'll have a cell phone with me: 585-519-9211

Subject: Re: [GeneseeBirds-L] [geneseebirds-googlegroup] Black-necked Stilt Iroquois National Wildlife Refuge

The Stilt was seen at 2:12 pm - 2:30 pm at Kumpf Marsh. Initially it was way at the north end but then it flew south (with some vocalization) and landed just opposite where the trail from the Kanyoo parking lot comes out to the gravel road.

The Black-necked Stilt has returned! It was seen just now by Paul Hess who asked me to text it out. It is located at the Kumpf Marsh which is a sub impoundment of Cayuga pool on Route 77 in Basom on Iroquois National Wildlife Refuge. Good luck!
