Male Towhee on the ground beneath the feeders behind our house about noon
today.  Then came the snow showers about 1pm.  What's wrong with this
picture?

This morning on my drive in to work, I saw two Ospreys copulating on the new 
nest platform on Myers Road (where it intersects with Lakeshore Rd.). The light 
drizzle didn't seem to bother them.

Hi Folks,

I fully realize the quixotic nature of owl-location--magnified, perhaps, in
one's asking for such information from others...nevertheless....

Seen or heard any good (nocturnal) owls lately?  Especially interested in
places within 10-15 minute drive from the Lab.  Individual birds that enjoy
30 degree weather and high winds and sleet are preferred.

Thanks,
Marc

Subject: Chipping Sparrow and others
From: "Bill Mcaneny" <bmcaneny1 AT fltg.net>
Date: Mon, 14 Apr 2014 18:41:25 -0400
Our first Chipping Sparrow showed up at the feeders this afternoon.  It was
scratching around under the sunflower seed feeder.  Not long after, a
Sharpshinned Hawk cruised thru the yard but made no attacks that I could
see.  This a.m. a Flicker flew away as I drove past the barns.  In other
news, things in bloom include Lenten Rose, Scylla, and one daffodil that may
pop at any moment.  Snowdrops and croci are on the way out, having served
their purpose of announcing the arrival of fine weather.  A few minutes ago,
the fine weather blew hard thru here with a big dump of rain.  So it goes.

Subject: Fw: Cayuga Bird Club Meeting and speaker dinner Mon., April 14
From: "clr82 AT juno.com" <clr82@juno.com>
Date: Mon, 14 Apr 2014 17:43:55 +0000
A last reminder about tonight's : Cayuga Bird Club meeting at 7:30 at the 
Cornell Lab of Ornithology, with cookies and conversation 

at 7:15.  
 "Saw-whet Owls: The Cute Factor Aids Science: 206,000 Birds Banded by 
Insomniac Banders Reveal Migration Patterns and Regional Reproductive Success" 
Speakers: Dr. John L. Confer, Biology Department, Ithaca College; Dr. Leann 
Kanda, co-analyst, Biology Department, Ithaca College 

The Northern Saw-whet Owl is widely distributed, and an intensive banding 
effort provides a data trove for this tiny raptor. Banding records combined 
with GIS analyses reveal exceptional detail about migration patterns in eastern 
and central North America . This, with the ability to determine age classes by 
plumage, allows analysis of temporal/spatial patterns of reproductive success 
for breeding populations in different portions of North America. Dr. Confer 
will talk about his own banding effort and how his data, combined with that of 
other banders, has helped answer many questions about this little owl. 

 And there is still room for any members who would like to come to dinner with 
John and his wife Karen before the meeting at 5:30 

at Taste of Thai Express. I'll be calling to make reservations at 3 pm this 
afternoon. 


See you all soon.

Two Brown Thrashers are in my yard, holding a singing contest. One does very

Alder Flycatcher. What a charmer!

Numerous singing SWAMP SPARROWs in the field/marsh east of 3rd parking lot. 
They were sitting high so easy to see their fresh plumage in the rising sun. 


I heard some quarter-clicking and low grunty sounds but could not say if it 
was a Rail or not. It was near me and made many of the grunts but no clear 
resolution of what it was in the time I had to spend.

Subject: Spotted Sandpiper, Canada Goose in tree
From: Mike Pitzrick <mpitzrick AT gmail.com>
Date: Mon, 14 Apr 2014 08:56:48 -0400
Yesterday (Sunday) morning I was out enjoying the warm weather was some
friends looking for tracks in the sand along the banks of Cayuga Inlet
south of Buttermilk State

Park. 

Of particular interest were:

1. My FOY Spotted Sandpiper

2. A Canada Goose roosting about 60 feet off the ground partially hidden in
the hollow formed where the trunk of a huge cottonwood tree had broken
off.  It was there for at least two hours, and was visited from time to
time by a very loud Canada Goose companion, who would land next to the
roosting goose and display it's wings while calling loudly.  Does Canada
Goose ever nest in trees?

3. An extended rolling-around-on-the-ground brawl between two male Eastern
Bluebirds, with an attentive female nearby.  During the conflagration, she
flew a couple of times to what appeared to be the entrance of a natural
cavity about 6 feet off the ground in a broken-off trunk near the river
bank.

4. (Completely off topic) A number of mammalian tracks, including river
otter, mink, muskrat, beaver, and others.

-Mike

Subject: PALM WARBLER, Sapsucker Woods, Owen's platform boardwalk
From: "Wesley M. Hochachka" <wmh6 AT cornell.edu>
Date: Mon, 14 Apr 2014 12:42:39 +0000
Hi everyone,

 I had a rather surprising first-parulid-of-year-in-Sapsucker Woods just now: a 
PALM WARBLER. I saw the bird in the clump of alder shrubs/trees through which 
the boardwalk cuts, leading to the platform over the water to the south of 
Kip's Barn (the big white barn north of the Lab of O building). I only briefly 
saw the bird, seconds after my attention was drawn to a warbler chip note. The 
bird flew up at about eye level and while I only had maybe 2 seconds of clear 
view (half of that wasted while my brain processed the fact that I was not 
looking at a Yellow-rumped Warbler), I'm reasonably confident that it was a 
brown-form Palm Warbler. I think that I heard the bird chipping nearby 
subsequently just to the west of the boardwalk, so it might linger in this 
general area for a while.

Subject: Barred Owls, Woodcock, peepers

...an hour later, and it's now as dark as it's going to get under this 
nearly-full moon. Barred Owls are talking, as they regularly do here 
year-around, but tonight spring peepers are singing too, as I imagine they're 
doing all over the basin. My yard Woodcock is still displaying, thanks to the 
brightness of the moonlight, I guess. I can't remember another year when I had 
Woodcock right near my house for more than a night or two.

Subject: Hermit chorus
From: Geo Kloppel <geokloppel AT gmail.com>

7:30 pm. Multiple Hermit Thrushes. I'm sitting on a rock right on the 
Danby/Newfield town line, which corresponds to the boundary between my woods 
and the westernmost extremity of the L-P Preserve. Hard to say how many Hermit 
Thrushes are singing down by the brook, as I'm 100 yards up the bank. The brook 
is quite noisy... Ooh! There's my first Louisiana Waterthrush! :-) Anyway, as I 
was saying, the number of Hermit Thrushes is hard to tell, but they're 
definitely here in force. And so are the ticks! Here's one crawling up my 
shirtsleeve. And here's another on my dog, Sandy. 


What a beautiful moonrise!

I'm looking forward to tomorrow night's lunar eclipse (c.2:00 am)

Subject: Re: First Broad-wings
From: Geo Kloppel <geokloppel AT gmail.com>
Date: Sun, 13 Apr 2014 18:11:14 -0400
Just one day after Ken's observation, my (presumed) local Broad-winged Hawk is 
back on territory. I've seen him several times today, flying low over his 
traditional nest area, not far above the treetops, calling out the familiar 
"Pe-heeeeeeee?" as if expecting an answer. I recently discovered what I believe 
to be last year's newly-constructed nest (a previous nest that had been in use 
for a number of years was damaged by a heavy spring snowfall a couple of years 
ago). 


I heard some nasal Crow calls this morning. Looking around, I found three 
Crows, a familiar group that Pat has been feeding for months. They were close 
together in a tree. One had a food item, and the other two were watching very 
closely. Not sure what the social relationships are among this threesome, but I 
believe one was trying a little begging. 


Lots of Fox Sparrows, Towhees and Purple Finches around today. Also had 
Golden-crowned Kinglet and Winter Wren, both singing. I might walk down to the 
brook to hear the chorus of Hermit Thrushes this evening. Yard Woodcock 
continues.

Subject: Re: Salt Pt. Ospreys on nest
From: Candace Cornell <cec222 AT gmail.com>
Date: Sun, 13 Apr 2014 18:02:39 -0400
The adults at Salt Point, Ophelia and Orpheus, are the mated pair from last
year, arriving at Salt Point on Saturday, April 5. 2014. This will be their
approximate arrival date every spring for as long as they survive. They've
been courting, nesting, and fighting off intruding ospreys, 1-4 at a time,
since their return. But unlike last year when the pair first got together
on April 22, 2013, and had to quickly build a new nest and procreate, the
pair has a bit more leisure time this season to spend flying together or
just perching side-by-side on a branch and getting used to each other after
their long winter separation.  Robyn, Paul, and Stevie were the three
chicks from last year who won't return to this area, assuming they all
survive, until April of 2016.

Last year's chicks were named for the three people instrumental in putting
up the SP platform--Lab of O's Robyn Bailey, NYSEG's Paul Paradine, and T of
Lansing's Park & Rec. Dir. Steve Colt. The three are responsible for
another new platform this year on Myers Hill Rd, just inland from the Myers
Park entrance. The platform is attracting the attention of at least four
ospreys over the last four days. Today was the first day I saw a female in
the nest, but others saw an adult in it Saturday. The Portland Point pair
have been nesting since Thursday, April 3, as far as I can tell. That's the
latest O buzz in Lansing. There's lots of ospreys around Ithaca right now
as well!

Subject: Eastern Towhee
From: "Chris R. Pelkie" <chris.pelkie AT cornell.edu>
Date: Sun, 13 Apr 2014 20:22:30 +0000
First of yard year EASTERN TOWHEE showed up today (W Meadow Dr Lansing) singing 
his head off but with an unusual (and at first baffling) added strong second 
syllable that challenged my memorized pattern to something at first 
unidentifiable: drink-a-you-TEEE or drink-you-your-TEEE; the trill was flatter, 
and less upscale than I remembered so I had to get a visual on him to verify it 
wasnt some really aberrant song sparrow or other mystery. 


On top of that, last years 1st Towhee was Apr 23 and 2012s was Apr 26 so hes 
very early for this location. 


Another item of interest: he sang two upsweep notes while foraging (after he 
stopped singing). At first I was sure there were 2 birds one responding to the 
other from about 10 away. But after I found him and watched him, I could see 
he was throwing his voice: the first note was a few semitones higher and really 
seemed to come from a distance away, then the second note was more rooted at 
his location (on the ground). Fascinating trick.

This morning at 0730 I was surprised to hear a Brown Thrasher singing away here 
in suburbia. I caught a brief glimpse of the singer before he took off. Around 
0810 a Pine Warbler was singing on Comstock Knoll as if he intended to stay.

Subject: osprey pair courting over Jessup Woods
From: Anne Clark <anneb.clark AT gmail.com>
Date: Sun, 13 Apr 2014 13:54:56 -0400
Today about 11-1130, a pair of ospreys, one clasping a 6-8 inch fish with both 
feet, circled, giving high calls, and repeatedly alighted on the playing field 
lights just W of the Woods and N across Jessup Rd from the Purcell Center. They 
moved off toward the north, appearing to stay for a while almost to Pleasant 
Grove Place (from my vantage point in Alot). 


After a bit, the one with the fish flew S toward me (still closer to PL. Grove 
Pl) giving high cries again, and suddenly another was flying fast after it. For 
a moment, I thought it was its fast flying mate, but it was an adult bald 
eagle. It very handily caught up, the osprey dropped the fish, the eagle caught 
it, and beat its way west (essentially toward the Lake, I guess).

Just saw what I believe were a flock of cormorants, pretty high up, in a
flock like geese, maybe 35-40 of them. Heading north. Looks like the
silhouette in Sibley, though. My best guess.

Subject: Sapsucker Woods, Sun 4/13
From: Mark Chao <markchao AT imt.org>
Date: Sun, 13 Apr 2014 08:48:49 -0400
On Sunday morning, a GREEN HERON was surveying Sapsucker Woods from high
perches in the Fuller Wetlands and on the heron-cam snag in the main pond.
Becky Hansen and her group also saw this bird.   This is surely the earliest
date in April for a local Green Heron sighting for me.

 

The other highlight of my circuit around the sanctuary was a WINTER WREN at
the southern Wilson/Severinghaus intersection.  The wren gave me several
minutes of very fine views as it moved among decaying logs, stopping now and
then to pump its body up and down in place.  The bird did not sing, but gave
a lot of helpful "jif-jif" vocalizations.

A female WOOD DUCK perched in a couple of my trees near my little stream and

I wish one of my dead trees had a large enough cavity for a nest.

We had a wonderful day yesterday driving along east shore of Cayuga lake.
Highlights were a beautiful look at Purple Finch and Red bellied Woodpecker in 
same binoculars view on Drake Road. 

A Northern Goshawk on Center Road, which scared a flock of Horned larks.
A lovely look at Bonaparte's Gull feeding like phalarope along with 4 breeding 
plumaged Horned Grebes. 

And many other sightings. Today we are expecting hot weather. We will see what 
is store for us.

Subject: Stealth Duck (and ID quiz)
From: Suan Yong <suan.yong AT gmail.com>
Date: Sat, 12 Apr 2014 20:38:32 -0400
So I was eating lunch at Stewart Park in the beautiful weather, casually 
watching lesser scaups and redheads loafing about as close to shore as I've 
ever seen, and a muskrat swimming past even closer. I picked up my binoculars 
to get a closer look at the muskrat, and instead saw a duck! crouched low to 
the water as if in stealth mode. Every now and then it would dive slowly like a 
muskrat. It did this very close to shore, moving along until it reached the 
dock, went under the footbridge to the dock, then moved back east possibly in 
response to my stalking :-). 


I snatched a few photos of this strange behavior, plus a few more from the few 
times it "stood up proper". The ID of this duck stumped me for a bit but I 
think I figured it out. Can you ID this bird? (Answer below):

Female redhead.

At least that's what I think it is.

Hello all,


I stopped today at Bard Prentiss' in Dryden and observed a pair of courting 
MERLINS. They were calling and wing fluttering as they kept flying back and 
forth Rt 392 going in and out of a tall Norway spruce. As you come into the 
4-corners in Dryden stay straight and birds can be heard a few houses up.

I haven't been keeping up with which ospreys are nesting where this year and I 
deleted a bunch of email from this list. How long have the Ospreys been on the 
nest platform this year at Salt Point? 


They are there right now but I am not sure if they are "Robyn and Paul" as I 
didn't study them last year. 


I'm at Myers Point, Lansing. There are some Horned Grebes and a Common Loon. 
Nothing unusual at the moment.

There's still some ice on the road at the bottom of Shindagin Hollow, but it's 
navigable. 

Unlooked for highlight was listening to a singing HERMIT THRUSH in the cool 
early morning fog. 

Also 2 singing BLUE-HEADED VIREOS.

From: "W. Larry Hymes" <wlh2 AT cornell.edu>

This evening Sara Jane and I took a walk in Upper Buttermilk.  As we 
approached the outflow for Lake Treman, we were wonderfully surprised to 
hear a LOUISIANA WATERTHRUSH singing.  After soaking up the bird's 
beautiful sounds, we continued up to the lake, where we found a pair of 
COMMON MERGANSER and a BELTED KINGFISHER.  The waterthrush sang pretty 
much continuously, and as we rounded the bend below the upper lot and 
started back, we could still hear it singing.  What a great way to greet 
the change of seasons!

Subject: Dryden Lake, etc.
From: Susan Fast <sustfast AT yahoo.com>
Date: Fri, 11 Apr 2014 15:52:36 -0700 (PDT)
Late afternoon, I stopped by Dryden Lake. The only new bird was a male 
LONG-TAILED DUCK, still mostly in winter plumage. There are more HORNED and 
PIED-BILLED GREBES scattered over the lake than I'm used to seeing. 

Then stopped at the "Pond with no birds" (next to Rt. 38, just south of Dryden 
village) and located a BLACK-CROWNED NIGHT HERON on the beaver lodge in the SW 
corner. Bunch of ducks too.

It seems the Osprey have reclaimed their former nest at Mud Lock. It's nice 
that they have returned to their former nesting site. With so many Osprey 
around I figured a pair would claim it sooner or later. 


The Osprey pair on the rt. 89 bridge have begun to rebuild their nest on the 
same side as last year.

At the FLLT's Goetchius Preserve this morning (10:10-ish) I heard and then 
located and watched a Wilson's Snipe performing its winnowing aerial display. 
The flight continued for at least 15 minutes. Later I heard the distinctive 
repeated calls that the species gives while perched.

Subject: Osprey - Nest Building?
From: "Christopher T. Tessaglia-Hymes" <cth4 AT cornell.edu>
Date: Fri, 11 Apr 2014 14:13:26 +0000
This morning, as I was driving along Game Farm Road (East Hill, Ithaca) from 
Ellis Hollow Road to Route 366, I observed an in-flight Osprey carrying a 
stick. The bird landed atop one of the six floodlight poles for the Cornell 
soccer fields closest to Ellis Hollow Road. Specifically, it landed on the 
middle pole of the South row of three poles. I suspect this bird may be 
constructing a nest at this site. Not a bad site for another Cornell nest 
cameasy power access 


Good birding!

Sincerely,
Chris T-H

My Song Sparrow also arrived today morning and he was singing his heart out. I 
know it is the same guy because his song seems to be the same. I recorded him 
among the traffic noise. But will confirm it later with the songs of the 
previous years that I have recorded.

Hi all,

Thursday morning, the pond in the Cornell Plantations Arboretum held three 
Ring-necked Ducks (2 males, 1 female) and a male Bufflehead. They have been 
there a couple of days, swimming around and diving for food, and fairly 
approachable if anyone wants a close look. 


Otherwise, many of the usual suspects.

Hi all,

There was a LOUISIANA WATERTHRUSH on the Wilson Trail North this morning.
It called several times as it passed over the trail and landed along the

There was also a Canada Goose on its nest and four AMERICAN WIGEON flew
into the back pond.

Radars are lit up with bird echoes across the northeast and mid Atlantic at 
present and a cold front with showers will move across central NY overnight 
grounding migrants. 

I would expect more new arrivals and a decent day Friday!

Good luck.

I have not seen the two Merlins together since the day I observed the
mating, but I have seen one from my porch almost every day. The favorite
perch seems to be in an oak tree in a backyard bordered by Prospect,
Pleasant and Hudson--have seen it there on at least half a dozen separate
occasions in the past week.
