There are currently two Ibis feeding together in Eaton Marsh on Wildlife Dr. I 
was watching one when the other one flew in from the north. They soon were 
feeding together. Janet Akin

Subject: Short-eared Owl on Bluegrass Lane (northeast Ithaca)
From: Tom Schulenberg <tss62 AT cornell.edu>
Date: Wed, 29 Oct 2014 20:19:04 -0400
Marshall Iliff, Ken Rosenberg, and I had a Short-eared Owl again this
evening over the field of tall switchgrass on Bluegrass Lane. This is the
first report from Bluegrass (that I know of) since Ken had a SEOW here last
Friday, but I don't know how many times it's been looked for since then.
Tonight it appeared at 18:23 and put on a very nice show; when we finally
lost sight of it, it was drifting east over the now fallow field along
Hanshaw Road.

Belatedly, I wanted to note that when I found it last week, it was happily 
lurking amidst the gulls on the point. It was completely hidden by them as they 
are 3x bigger than it and when clustered together made a complete wall. 

Then, it is also the same color as the beach rocks. It has been animatedly 
foraging so watch for moving beach rocks! 


After scanning the gulls a couple times, then looking away for a while, then 
scanning them again, lo and behold, I saw a ‘not gull’ head pop up briefly and 
knew I had found it. 

A while later, they flew off and gave nice scope views (it didn’t come as close 
as for some other observers and I didn’t want to fright it off, so I stayed 50’ 
away). 


So, keep trying, but it has been there for a while and may have finally beefed 
up for the next leg of migration.

To clarify our sighting ... it was Monday evening 27 Oct. 2014 when 
Becky & I watched the  SP until it was almost full dark. Lake was dead 
calm. What a difference a day makes.

 I waited in vain from 4:00 - 6:30 pm this afternoon for the Purple Sandpiper's 
return. Even though the lighting was ideal for photography 

 the only occupants on the point were a handful (30-35) of R-bGs and a pair of 
Mallards. Bill Roberts

I was at Myers Point for half an hour starting at 7:55am, and Jason Huck was 
there for much of that time. We had no luck with the Purple Sandpiper. The only 
shorebird I saw was a KILLDEER on the island in Salmon Creek. Other highlights 
were a low northbound flock of DOUBLE-CRESTED CORMORANTS presumably commuting 
from their Ithaca roost to feed, and a loose flock of 50 southbound AMERICAN 
CROWS, migrants I presume.

Hi all,

At lunch today Tim Lenz and I had a GOLDEN EAGLE flying low and slowly
headed south from the compost piles, seen from Dodge Road. The bird had
what looked like a squirrel in its talons and slowly crept along past
Turkey Hill Road.

Eared Grebe and Ibis continue, as do the Ross's Geese. I have some close photos 
of the ibis. I personally think the eye is on its way to being reddish and the 
bare skin on its way to being pinkish.

Birds at the south end of Cayuga Lake this morning included:
BLACK SCOTER - 7 females relatively close off East Shore
WHITE-WINGED SCOTER - 4 females distant to the NW from East Shore
HORNED GREBE - group of 10 visible from East Shore, another 8 farther
north, visible from the railroad crossing.
RED-NECKED GREBE - 2 with a few Horned Grebes towards the west shore, just
out of sight to north from East Shore.
RED-THROATED LOON - 1 adult straight out from the railroad crossing, well
north of East Shore.
COMMON LOON - at least 3 moving around.
REDHEAD - pair close to east shore of lake, seen from Stewart; then later a
flock of 7 flying north up the lake.
BONAPARTE'S GULL - line of at least 12 birds flying south past East Shore.

Good numbers of Yellow-rumped Warblers remain (or have reappeared?) around
the Swan Pen at Stewart, and we found a very late YELLOW WARBLER in the
willows near the dock this morning.

Subject: duck food
From: Dave Nutter <nutter.dave AT me.com>
Date: Mon, 27 Oct 2014 08:22:35 +0000 (GMT)
Recently when I've been walking home either north along the Cayuga Waterfront 
Trail or northwest along Cliff Street I've been seeing a flock of about a dozen 
Mallards on the lawn below a small stand of trees on the west side of the path 
and just north of the bridge. It has taken me several days to realize why they 
are there. Yesterday as one drake waddled across the trail I could see his 
distended crop. One of the trees is an oak, and it seems the ducks have been 
poking around in the grass for acorns to eat. I had never considered mast as a 
part of their diet before. Their gizzards must get a good workout.

?Hi all,

Here is a link to the clip I took of Purple Sandpiper this afternoon. At times 
it came as close as 6 feet from me. It moved very fast in general. At one time 
the surfer had left his surfboard at the edge of the lake and the bird foraged 
in between the boards. Quite a cute bird!

After walking up and down Salt Road in the Summerhill SF this morning 
(highlight - Brown Creeper), I stopped by Myers town park and the private 
marina. I was surprised to find the (a) Purple Sandpiper still foraging among 
the gulls out on the spit. The lake was quite rough and rain was spitting in, 
so my scan of the water was quick - one Common Loon flying north just above the 
surface. 


South from the marina the lake was again nearly empty. 5 Mallards, one DC 
Cormorant, and a small group of four Surf Scoters were riding the waves. Also 
of interest was a Merlin perched on one of the snags above the pool behind 
Ladoga.

I have a question from an historian friend of mine about identification of a 
bird illustration in a 16th century Italian manuscript. My guess has been a 
Black Crowned Night Heron, but I’m hoping for some expert opinion. 


I’m not sure if the list allows attachments, but I can send a jpeg to anyone 
who would like to attempt an identification. 


Thanks in advance for any help,

It's nice to be back on the mountain after a month's book tour in oh-so-dry 
California. 

This evening's walk on Mt Pleasant Road netted a drumming Ruffed Grouse in the 
woods east of the Cornell farm. And yesterday afternoon two small flocks of 
American Pipits, one opposite the observatory, the other over a field at the 
east end of Mt Pleasant Rd.

Ken and I went out along the lake this morning, stopping at East Shore
Park, Myers Pt and Long Point.
A single BRANT and a COMMON LOON were out on the water at East Shore Park,
but we did not find any Scoters.  At Myers Point, the PURPLE SANDPIPER was
still busily probing away, this time out near the end of the spit
surrounded by gulls.  From the Marina, we saw 5 LONG-TAILED DUCKS,
including one bright white headed adult male that gave us good looks at its
very long tail. On Lake Road, we were surprised by a RING-NECKED PHEASANT
that scuttled from the roadside into the fields. Long Point State Park had
fairly calm water, and lots of birds.  We counted 55 COMMON LOONS, and
there were probably more. At least two RED-NECKED GREBES and one
WHITE-WINGED SCOTER.  And a SNOW BUNTING, all by itself, flew up and landed
on the ground at the base of a tree near us, our first of this season.

Good birding,
Diane

Subject: Short-eared Owl Bluegrass Lane
From: "Kenneth V. Rosenberg" <kvr2 AT cornell.edu>

Last evening, right at dusk, a SHORT-EARED OWL was hunting over the north end 
of the giant switchgrass field on west side of Bluegrass Lane, just off Hanshaw 
Rd. I squeaked with my hand, and the owl came right at me, veering just 10 ft 
or so from my head — even my dog was fascinated and watched it fluttering above 
us for a few seconds. 


Rumor has it, the switchgrass may get cut this weekend, so this evening might 
be a good time to check again.

The purple sandpiper is still on the point at Meyers, with a killdeer. A 
red-necked grebe is off north past the duck hunters.

Thanks Jay. Found it. Still there 4-4:30pm. What a lovely looking bird.
Also found Gary and Mark and Tilden.
And Gary found for me a Long-tailed Duck at the marina.

Also for those seeking the Purple Sandpiper at Myers, there was a nice 
assortment of ducks south of the lighthouse (viewed from south side of Marina), 
including 8 SURF SCOTERS, 1 gorgeous male LONG-TAILED DUCK, RING-NECKED, LESSER 
SCAUP, RUDDY DUCK, AM WIGEONs, and 2 female GREEN-WINGED TEAL. 


 A juv RED-THROATED LOON was swimming offshore of the spit fairly close, but 
flew north. 


The PURPLE PIPER gave incredible views in the early afternoon, almost walking 
across our feet on the north side of the parking area.

Many thousands of ducks/geese in at the Main Pool - both dabblers and divers. 
At least one Eurasian Wigeon continues but I missed the Eared Grebe. Shorebirds 
included both yellowlegs, 2 Stilt Sandpiper, 5 Dunlin, and 2 White-rumped 
Sandpiper. Over at Knox-Marsellus the Avocets continue. Many geese there also 
plus a few distant shorebirds, presumably yellowlegs. 



Some photos at the link below: Common Gallinule stretching wings, doing feather 
maintenance, scratching. Also Peregrine Falcon, Harrier, PB Grebe diving and 
standing out of water showing amazing feet, Ruddy Duck diving, lots more on the 
photostream and pending upload. Away from MNWR there are Wigeon flying with 
Gadwall at Fair Haven, Brant flocks on Lake Ontario, a Caspian Tern flying in 
front of a fire hydrant, a Kingbird (and its shadow) dive-bombing a Bald Eagle, 
etc.

After watching the wonderful Purple Sandpiper this afternoon I thought of going 
back to Ithaca and chasing the Black Scoter. 

I stopped first to the Marina and was pleasantly surprised to see 7 Black 
Scoters flying in tight formation up the lake past the point. There were also 9 
Surf Scoters, 3 Long-tailed Ducks, Horned and Pied-billed Grebes. 

It is shaping up to be excellent lake watching. I wonder what else is waiting 
to be discovered?

A nice female-type BLACK SCOTER was visible a few minutes ago from East Shore 
Park, swimming steadily south. The immature BRANT that has been around for 
several days was visible on the lake off the east end of Stewart Park. Last I 
heard, the Purple Sandpiper was still showing well on the spit at Myers. Surf 
Scoters and a continuing male LONG-TAILED DUCK were the other highlights from 
Myers.

Subject: Black Scoter, East Shore Park
From: Jay McGowan <jwm57 AT cornell.edu>
Date: Wed, 22 Oct 2014 09:38:53 -0400
A nice female-type BLACK SCOTER was visible a few minutes ago from East
Shore Park, swimming steadily south. The immature BRANT that has been
around for several days was visible on the lake off the east end of Stewart
Park. Last I heard, the Purple Sandpiper was still showing well on the spit
at Myers. Surf Scoters and a continuing male LONG-TAILED DUCK were the
other highlights from Myers.

Subject: Purple Sandpiper, Myers Point

A few minutes ago a PURPLE SANDPIPER tried to land on the spit at Myers
Point on Cayuga Lake. It circled a half dozen times as it was harried by
airborn gulls, finally managed to land at the tip, but was gone a moment
later. I'm not sure if it headed back out on the lake or might be hiding on
one of the beaches here, but I am not seeing it at the moment. Checking the
jetties at the south end of the lake might be a good idea. Nothing else of
note so far this morning.

Matt Medler and I just heard a Woodcock taking off in a field on Triphammer 
Road, just past the Mall. ("skydance" sound - not peenting). I heard the same 
thing here on Whitted Road several evenings ago. I see from eBird that they 
have lingered in Tompkins County as late as the end of November.

Subject: Day of Golden eagles and Red-shoulered Hawk
From: Meena Madhav Haribal <mmh3 AT cornell.edu>
Date: Sun, 19 Oct 2014 23:51:58 +0000
Hi all,

Today I was out on a seed collecting trip with FLNPS and when we were at the 
main pond (I think it is called Mud Pond) of the Mclean Bog, there was a strong 
north wind. So I was generally looking up at the sky often. There were some 
raptors migrating. Once when I looked up, I found four eagles circling fairly 
low and continued higher and higher reaching thermal. They were flying with a 
slight dihedral. They circled up in the air in the thermal till almost they 
became tiny birds and flew in southerly directions. 


I also had another Golden Eagle from Cornell Cooperative extension parking lot 
which also was fairly low initially and as it circled it gained height and went 
behind some trees then I lost the sight of it. 




Other raptors included a Kestrel, a Red-shouldered Hawk, a Red-tailed Hawk and 
two Coopers Hawk at Mclean Bog. Also I heard several Ruby-crowned Kinglets and 
a Brown Creeper among other common birds. 


Plus, I learnt a lot of about how to distinguish "aster" species and Cornus 
species and about some of the other rare species which I do not want to 
mention. 




Cheers

There are massive blooms of departing migrants on regional radar now (past
hour up to 7:13 PM).  I've never seen animated weather maps so dense with
apparent bird activity.  Maybe Red-winged Blackbirds?

 

Today at the Freese Road gardens I found eight sparrow species -- Song,
Savannah, Swamp, Chipping (10+ -- most of the season), Field, White-crowned,
White-throated, and House.

Subject: Mystery seed collector
From: Meena Madhav Haribal <mmh3 AT cornell.edu>
Date: Sun, 19 Oct 2014 16:21:01 +0000
Hi all,

I was pleasantly surprised yesterday when I was trying to empty my recycle bin, 
which a meter tall and had mixed recycling materials like papers and bottles 
and plastic container. When I was transferring the recyclers to a paper bag to 
take it to recycling unit, I heard strange clunking noise so I stopped and 
found oak acorns. All acorns are shelled and seem to be of good quality. I have 
more than 125 seeds. But I am puzzled as to who collected these. I leave most 
of the time my garage door closed, but may have left it open one of these days 
for four or five hours. 


I am trying to find out who the collector is. It is possible that a field mouse 
collected it, but acorns are quite large and the container is tall and smooth. 
So I doubt it could have a direct access, but you never know how it reached the 
container. May be it jumped across a stack of tiles. 


Then there is possibility of a squirrel or chipmunk, they should have done this 
job in the four or five hours when I had left the garage door open. 


Or a Blue Jays stashed them, but again the job should have to be accomplished 
in four or five hours. 


Acorns are from a tree across the stream in my neighbor's property about 30 
feet away across my drive way. 




The container was very close to the garage door.



Would field mouse collect so many seeds for winter?



I am curious to know if all these seeds are viable seeds



Any suggestions from anybody form this list?



Wish I could eat those seeds, they look so good! or I might donate it to the 
seed collection endeavor today! 






Cheers

Subject: Ruby-crowned Kinglets and OT info Ecuador
From: Meena Madhav Haribal <mmh3 AT cornell.edu>
Date: Sat, 18 Oct 2014 14:59:23 +0000
Hi all,

Today morning at about 9.00 am, I had a flock of 6 to7 Ruby-crowned Kinglets 
inspecting one of my large maple trees with out any leaves (all other maples 
have lots of foliage left) along with chickadees and a Brown Creeper! 




Yesterday there were more than a dozen of noisy Ruby-crowned Kinglets on Forest 
Home Drive and I found out they were noisy because they were family flocks and 
fledgling were begging for food from the parents. Some of the parents were 
trying to chase the begging kids, indicating them that it was high time they 
started finding their own food. 




Now OT- Has any one done any trips to Ecuador recently? Jane?? I am interested 
in going to southern part of Ecuador to Podocarpus and Caja national parks 
along with a few days in Mindo and Pappallacta and possibly revisit the 
Galapagos depending on the availability of the boats. If you have been to any 
of these national parks I am interested in hearing about these. And also if 
anyone is interested in joining me shoot an e-mail to 
mmh3 AT cornell.edu.

I have been enjoying the song of the Eastern Meadowlark here in Brooktondale 
over the last week, having not heard it for weeks and weeks. And just now the 
Red-winged Blackbirds, too! Sounds and feels like May or June even though it 
looks like October.

At 4:00 this afternoon Driving north on Hall Road in Interlaken I was surprised 
to see an Eastern Meadowlark perched on the telephone wire just after seeing a 
KESTREL on a wire close by. 


Yesterday we saw a bald eagle flying low over Interlaken on Rt 89 just a few 
miles north of Sheldrake. 



I love autumn!

- Checklist: http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S20242772
- Comments: "Flew from the inner area over our car to Benning Marsh. Dark
green and reddish color with distinctive curved bill. Lost sight after it
landed in the reeds. As we were pulling away, it came from behind us and
flew back into the main refuge area. Pictures not close enough to tell for
certain if it was a glossy or white-faced ibis. I would tend to lean
towards the glossy because of the visible light line over the eye and large
amount of dark green on the wings.

Subject: Bald Eagles for (during) lunch
From: Meena Madhav Haribal <mmh3 AT cornell.edu>

Hi all,

I had three adult Bald Eagles circling over Mundy during lunch time. One of 
them came fairly low enough to admire its beauty and the other two were also 
quite nicely visible. Then they gained height on the thermals and headed south 
westerly direction along with some TVs. 


Also in Mundy, I saw two Pileated Woodpeckers together along with two Am. 
Robins. 




In the morning on the way to work along east Ithaca recreation way and in 
Strawberry Hill area I saw several Cedar Waxwings, and hundred plus American 
Robins and a Carolina Wren. This year Crabapple crop seems to be not very good. 




Cheers

Meena

Subject: red crossbill???
From: "Bill Mcaneny" <bmcaneny1 AT fltg.net>
Date: Tue, 14 Oct 2014 15:55:00 -0400
Thanks all for your comments.  I feel politely admonished for not taking
photos when I had the means and the opportunity.  I had asked whether anyone
had heard of House Finches with deformed bills.  The answer was Yes.  I also
asked whether it was likely to have a R. Crossbill on our feeder at this
time of year. The answer was, anything is possible. I also asked about
further ID factors to consider.  The R. Crossbill is a bulkier bird.  Our
visitor was exactly the same size as a typical H. Finch.  So, there was
enough evidence to reverse the call on the field.  The default call is H.
Finch with a deformed bill.

Photos next time!! I promise.
