There was also a Swainson’s Thrush on the Wilson Trail between the small 
bridge and the Sherwood Platform. And there was a Swamp Sparrow mixed with the 
Song Sparrows around the parking lots.

Hi all,
This morning on the Wilson Trail there was a flyover PINE SISKIN (heard 
simultaneously by Wes Hochachka) as well as several NORTHERN WATERTHRUSHES, 
CAPE MAY WARBLER, RUBY-CROWNED KINGLET, and BLUE-HEADED VIREO. Most of the 
birds were around the Sherwood Platform/Charlie Harper Bench.

I birded the Park Preserve south this morning. After a very quiet start at 9 
am, with the exception of white throated sparrows just at the start of the 
preserve, I finally found a very active area around 10 am. From 10-10:30 I 
observed: 


Common Yellowthroats, Nashville warbler, Magnolia Warbler, Black throated green 
warblers, yellow rumped warblers, a possible orange crowned warbler, blue 
headed vireo, ruby crowned kinglets, golden crowned kinglets, many chickadees, 

Hermit thrush, towhees, waxwings, flicker, downy, blue jays, robin, white 
throated sparrows. By 10:30 it had gone quiet again.

This morning I stepped out of the house at 8 am to find an active flock of 
migrants which included; 

Black throated green warblers (4 or more)
Blue headed vireo (1)
Orange crowned warbler  (1)
White throated sparrow ( singing)
Ruby crowned kinglet
Chipping sparrows
Catbird
Cardinals (several)

Now I am just starting a walk at the Park Preserve south and there are lots of 
White throated sparrows.

Subject: Re: Jaeger at Myers
From: "Kenneth V. Rosenberg" <kvr2 AT cornell.edu>
Date: Tue, 30 Sep 2014 23:26:17 +0000
With power out at work and hard rain falling, naturally I headed to Myers 
Point. Several hundred RING-BILLED GULLS were gathering on the spit, along with 
a small number of HERRING GULLS and 2 LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULLS. As the rain 
abated, all the gulls took off and disappeared up the lake. 


A lone shorebird on the spit proved to be a juvenile DUNLIN. 

Then Marshall Iliff arrived and we soon spotted a bird flying swiftly down the 
lake low over the water -- JAEGER! Over the next 15 minutes we watched the 
jaeger sit for awhile on the water, chase several Ring-billed Gulls, and wheel 
around sev times giving fairly good views in the poor light. Based on the 
overall dark plumage, extensive white "flash" in the primaries, and slightly 
larger size than Ring-billed Gull, Marshall was fairly confident that this was 
a juvenile PARASITIC JAEGER. 


Bad weather = good birds!

A fellow bioacoustics friend of mine posted a Night Flight Call explainer and 
interview to her blogroll, for those interested. 


The target audience is high school and undergrad level.

The Collins Bird Guide is the go-to for Europe; very similar to Sibley.

Hi Linda,

 

where are you going in Europe? I am from Spain and I could recommend you a
couple of books for Spain and Europe. 

I could also tell you very good places to spot birds in Spain.

 

Cheers,

Noe

If you haven’t found anything by then, the Friends of the Library booksale 
starts October 11, and always has a lot of interesting birding stuff. You can 
page through what’s there and see if it looks good to you.

I stepped outside tonight at about 10 PM and immediately heard a Barred Owl
calling from the NW.  Earlier this year we heard them from th E to SE.
Makes me wonder if this is part of the same family group or a new individual...

I was walking in the woods up at the overlook at Taughanock this afternoon
when a large hawk flew through the trees.  As I was trying to get a better
view of his disappearing silhouette  I noticed the immediate chorus of
chipmunks all around. The typical "clucking" sound that they make to alert
to an aerial predator.  It doesn't sound like chatter.  I found a youtube

If you can't make chipmunks fit, you night consider Turkey moms and their 
half-grown poults. They're trading alarm clucks right now.

Mid-day Sunday we watched for about an hour as multiple kettles of vultures 
appeared over Mt. Pleasant and drifted west over the compost piles on Stevenson 
Rd. The groups varied in size from 10-40 birds. Only saw one black vulture that 
was part of a group that passed quickly to the south. Colleen Richards

There is a pair of white pigeons at the intersection (T) of Station Rd. and
Bald Hill Rd.  They were there at 10:45 this morning and still present when
I came home at 12:30.  I assume they are escapees from someone's coop.  This
is a busy rural road and they are hanging out right on the road.  Please
pass the word.

We were awakened at 12:30 am this morning to the pleasant but intense whinnying 
and trilling of a screech owl outside our window. It was alternating between 
the two calls. A lovely serenade surprise for our location.

Subject: Morning songs
From: Meena Madhav Haribal <mmh3 AT cornell.edu>
Date: Sun, 28 Sep 2014 12:28:03 +0000
In last few days I have heard the Eastern Screech Owl everyday. Sometimes at 
1.51 am or 3.55 am and various other times. He seems to have taken residence 
nearby in my neighborhood. 




In the last few days I am being woken up or hear song of a cheery and merry 
Carolina Wren. He changes his songs every few minutes from chorri, chorri to 
thikahai, thikhai and various other dialects. 




Also in last three days a pair of Am. Robins seems to be occupying the backyard 
trees and one of them sings often. I don't know if they are the resident pairs 
back and claiming their territory or some totally different pair. It is great 
to hear them at least for a few more days. 




Yesterday I spent some time Plantations at the same location where I had seen 
some birds eating fruits last week. This time there were no birds at the 
fruits, probably they ate up all the Virginia creeper fruits and the shiny blue 
fruits of the other plant. But I did see lots of Chipping sparrows, two 
Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers one of them was a HY bird, and one Black-throated 
Green. Plus a flock of Turkey Vultures that were lazily floating in the blue 
sky!

Subject: Owls, falcon, etc.
From: Susan Fast <sustfast AT yahoo.com>
Date: Sun, 28 Sep 2014 04:40:38 -0700
This morning, at 0330, I was awakened by the singing of a BARRED OWL from the 
woods way south of the house. In my 13 years here, this is only the second time 
I've heard this species from the premises. I got up, of course, and once 
outside picked up the begging calls of my resident juvenile GREAT HORNED OWL, 
coming from the valley to the north. It's been begging for almost 2 months now. 
(Two nights ago, a yard SCREECH OWL got me up with its whinnies and 1 trill.) 

At 0415 the local pack of COYOTES began yelping across the road; they followed 
with an encore at 0445. I must have uncharacteristically dozed for a few 
minutes, and upon arising at 0530, the juv. GHO was still clamoring to be fed. 

Yesterday afternoon, from the Yard, I saw a large, darkish raptor with a bright 
white throat and upper breast and a characteristic wing shape glide in low from 
the north. It reached the large hayfield south of the house and found a 
powerful thermal and began circling and soaring. Up and up. I finally lost it 
to the unaided eye, but continued following its spirals with binocs until it 
appeared no larger than a sparrow. I saw no wingbeats (from such a powerful 
bird) for many minutes, which was awe-inspiring. The PEREGRINE FALCON then 
straightlined south.

Subject: SSW Blackburnian, winter wren
From: Suan Yong <suan.yong AT gmail.com>
Date: Sat, 27 Sep 2014 11:52:11 -0400
Morning bird walk was very productive. Big tree by the Owens platform junction 
had Blackburnian, BTGreen, and Wilson's warblers. 

At the Sherwood platform, I was surprised to hear a few bouts of winter wren 
song coming from the bushes to the north. 

Many other singers: chickadees, yellowthroat and swamp sparrows by the parking 
lot -- a number of swamp sparrows were feeding by the service road for great 
looks.

Subject: Monday Night Seminar: Jack Jeffrey--Hawaii’s Birds: Past, Present and Future
From: Marc Devokaitis <mdevokaitis AT gmail.com>
Date: Sat, 27 Sep 2014 10:13:23 -0400
 Hello All,



Please join us at *7:30 on September 29* for next Monday Night Seminar at
the Lab of Ornithology .
As always, these seminars are free and open to the public. The doors open
at 7:00.


This coming Monday, we will be streaming the seminar live. Be sure to
bookmark http://dl.allaboutbirds.org/cornelllab-monday-night-seminars for
quick access on Monday evening.  And if you missed them, you can also watch
the archived versions  of
the previous live-streamed lectures.





*Hawaii’s Birds: Past, Present and Future*

*Speaker: Jack Jeffrey, wildlife biologist and photographer*

*Host: John Fitzpatrick*



Over 5 million years ago, a small flock of Asian finches arrived on an
isolated volcanic archipelago in the central Pacific Ocean. Through
adaptive radiation and ecological opportunity, over 60 species of Hawaiian
Honeycreepers (Drepanidinae) evolved an amazing array of bill forms, color,
and specialized feeding behaviors. These and numerous other forest birds
inhabited the Hawaiian Islands until human contact over one thousand years
ago. Since first contact, humans have triggered an extinction process
through habitat destruction, agricultural practices and the introduction of
alien species including large herbivores, mammal predators, invertebrates,
diseases, and invasive plants. These introductions have caused, and
continue to cause, extinction and endangerment of many native forest bird
species throughout the Hawaiian Islands. Today, conservation efforts are
attempting to reverse this trend through habitat protection, forest
restoration, reforestation, alien species prevention and control, captive
propagation, and public awareness and education. Join Jack Jeffrey,
photographer and wildlife biologist, in an entertaining, informative, and
humorous program about Hawaii’s wonderful forest birds, their problems, and
the extensive efforts being made to protect these amazing forest creatures
from further decline and extinction.

 ​



*UPCOMING MONDAY NIGHT SEMINARS:*



*October 6*

*Birds in Flight: the Art and Science of How Birds Fly (seminar and book
signing)*

*Speaker: Carrol Henderson, wildlife biologist, photographer, and author*

*Host: Robyn Bailey*



Carrol Henderson has long been captivated by the phenomenon of birds in
flight. During this seminar, he will take you through the stages of an
“Avian Flight School 101.” Learn about the physics-based miracles of flight
ranging from “Bernoulli’s effect” to the “secret of the alula,” the
venetian blind effect, dynamic soaring by albatrosses, and the amazing
process by which hummingbirds hover—all illustrated with photos taken by
Henderson in the course of his international travels.


*October 13*

*CAYUGA BIRD CLUB MEETING*

*The Bluebird Effect: Uncommon Bonds with Common Birds  *

*Speaker: Julie Zickefoose, writer/artist*

*Host: Laura Stenzler*


Doors open at 7:00 p.m., Cayuga Bird Club meeting begins at 7:30 p.m.;
seminar begins after the meeting at approximately 8:00 p.m.



Join writer/artist Julie Zickefoose for an evening exploring the
intersection of birds and spirituality in our lives. Can a bird become a
demigod to some? Can certain species achieve the level of a totem or spirit
guide? Are there phenomena that occur between human and nature that cannot
be explained by conventional means? These are concepts that have surfaced
over a lifetime of helping broken birds and mothering those who are
orphaned, and in so doing coming to know birds from the inside out. A
scientist at heart, Julie has lately found herself wondering more than
knowing. This talk will help you keep your spirit “open to the thrust of
grace,” thinking about the unexplainables in your own life. Zickefoose's
book, "The Bluebird Effect," will be available for purchase and signing.



*October 20*

*Science and Nature in the Galapagos Islands*

*Speakers: Irby Lovette, director, Fuller Evolutionary Biology Program,
Cornell Lab Ornithology; Fausto Rodriguez, Galapagos Park Naturalist and
founder of Galapagos Best*

*Host: Miyoko Chu*



The Galapagos Archipelago has long been celebrated as an icon of evolution
and wondrous natural history. The Galapagos remains an otherworldly setting
where the wildlife from boobies to finches to fur seals, penguins to giant
tortoises to frigate birds shows no fear of humans, and where the
remoteness of the archipelago has fostered the evolution of wonderful
organisms and spectacular adaptations found nowhere else in the world.
Lovette and Rodriguez have many years of experience in Galapagos, and they
will recount some the wonders they have witnessed on their trips through
the archipelago, present new research findings from their own projects and
those of their colleagues, and discuss some of the challenging conservation
issues that may change the Galapagos forever.



*November 03*

*Fighting Crime with...Feathers: The Casebook of a Forensic Ornithologist*

*Speaker: Pepper Trail, Senior Forensic Scientist/Ornithologist, National
Fish and Wildlife Forensics Laboratory*

*Host: Miyoko Chu*



When a crime is committed against a bird, a forensic ornithologist
identifies the victim. Pepper Trail is likely the world’s only full-time
ornithological crime-fighter. Trail works at the National Fish and Wildlife
Forensics Laboratory in Ashland, Oregon, where he identifies all bird
evidence submitted by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service enforcement officers.
This evidence ranges from oil-soaked seabirds to the plumes of
birds-of-paradise, from carved hornbill skulls to live South American
parrots. Join us for a look behind the scenes at one of the world’s most
fascinating crime labs, and learn how feathers are powerful weapons in the
fight to protect the world’s birds.






*Cayuga Bird Club MeetingNovember 10The First Birdfair In The Land Of
Birds-the International Birdfair in Cali, ColombiaSpeaker: Jorge Orejuela,
Conservationist, Dept of Environmental Sciences/ Group in Environmental
Studies for Sustainable Development, Autonomous University of the West,
Cali, Colombia.*

In February 2015 Cali, Colombia will be the center of birding activity for
the International BirdFair. Jorge Orejuela, honorary President of this
event, will be sharing his views of the Fair activities. The participants
will visit choice localities where they may encounter as many as 500
species of birds, including residents, long-distance migrants and many
endemics most of them endangered. Shortly after the Fair, the organizers of
the Colombia BirdFair will establish a cloud forest nature reserve in the
vicinity of Cali, where visitors will be welcomed to stay and enjoy the
great diversity of birds of Colombia. Dr. Orejuela will provide a sneak
preview of the reserve and its wildlife.


*November 17*

*Sierra Wings: Birds of the Mono Lake Basin (seminar and book signing)*

*Speaker: Marie Read, photographer*

*Host: Miyoko Chu*



Nationally known bird photographer Marie Read takes us on a journey
exploring the birdlife of Mono Lake and its surrounding basin, located in
California¹s Eastern Sierra. Marie’s stunning photography, now featured in
her newly released book "Sierra Wings: Birds of the Mono Lake Basin,"
reveals the fascinating lives of the birds that breed or migrate through
this spectacular birding hotspot, famous for bizarre tufa towers and highly
saline and alkaline water. Enjoy Read's stories from the field and learn
how she obtained some of the behavior and action shots in the book. Books
will be available for purchase and signing.

An afternoon walk in scrubby woods and along the railroad grade / Black Diamond 
Trail west of Cass Park revealed a few interesting items: 


* numerous dragonflies in southbound migration above treetop level
* a MERLIN apparently catching and eating dragonflies in high flight
* a very high southbound migrating NORTHERN HARRIER
* numerous extremely high GULLS, milling about, not clearly migrating nor 
flycatching 

* various birds eating fruit, especially Virginia Creeper berries, including an 
EASTERN PHOEBE

Subject: Park preserve south
From: Laura Stenzler <lms9 AT cornell.edu>
Date: Thu, 25 Sep 2014 14:49:42 +0000
Hi
I was at the Park Preserve from 9-10:30 this morning. It was overcast and cool 
until around 10 when the sun broke through. Almost immediately there was an 
increase in bird activity where I was standing, overlooking the open area to 
the north (left) of the trail which heads straight as you enter the preserve 
(if that makes any sense). In that area were the following (in no particular 
order): 

3 black-throated green warblers
1 redstart
1 yellow rumped warbler
Several common yellowthroats,singing
1 ruby crowned kinglet, trying to sing
3 Swainson's thrushes
Several Robins
1 purple finch, singing
Many chickadees
Several towhees
goldfinches
Many bluejays, with many flocks of 10-20 flying over 
catbirds
crows

Subject: Turkey Buzzards
From: Judy Cuyle <gnatcat87 AT yahoo.com>

Late yesterday morning my husband and I saw a kettle of Turkey Buzzards soaring 
near the ponds near Robert Packer Hospital/Guthrie Clinic. It was a first for 
us to see so many together. There must have been around 100 of them. We live 
near the top of Bruce Hill Road in Danby and watch Turkey Buzzards soaring over 
the valley all summer, but only a few at a time.

Subject: Park Preserve today; Pine Siskins and other migrants
From: Jay McGowan <jwm57 AT cornell.edu>
Date: Wed, 24 Sep 2014 13:14:49 -0400
After a disappointingly active but migrant-less morning at the Durand
Preserve yesterday, Livia and I walked around the Roy H. Park Preserve
(south) this morning. Activity was concentrated in a couple of key areas,
the more shadowy parts of the preserve remaining cold and birdless.
Highlights were nine species of warblers including Cape May, Palm,
Blackpoll, Black-throated Blue, Yellow-rumped, Nashville, and Tennessee;
two flyover American Pipits; a drumming Ruffed Grouse; two LINCOLN'S
SPARROWS; and nice looks at a calling GRAY-CHEEKED THRUSH.

For those of you who don't watch eBird, the last couple of days have seen a
dramatic influx of PINE SISKIN reports. I haven't heard one yet this fall,
but yesterday Garrett MacDonald had a flyover at the Park Preserve, and
this morning Steve Kelling, Brad Walker, and Chris Wood all had flyover
birds. Other typical late-season trends are starting to (or continuing) to
appear, including decreased numbers of many warbler species but increases
in YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLERS and PALM WARBLERS, many reports of LINCOLN'S
SPARROW in the past week, as well as WHITE-THROATED SPARROW, AMERICAN
PIPIT, and RUBY-CROWNED KINGLET. PHILADELPHIA VIREOS are still being
reported with some regularity, and a handful of MARSH WRENS have turned up
here and there, although the only one I know that is still present is one
at the south side of the switchgrass field on Bluegrass Lane.

Subject: Starry Blue Jays
From: Meena Madhav Haribal <mmh3 AT cornell.edu>
Date: Tue, 23 Sep 2014 23:53:15 +0000
As Anne Marie noted quite a few Blue Jays were migrating throughout the day. 
May be they got cue from the equinox?? But the best part was while I waiting 
for my bus around 4.49 pm, I looked up in the sky there were about 80+ 
migrating Blue Jays. The height at which they were migrating and their wing 
flutter and the whiteness underside with the sun at low angle had effect of 
shining stars in the blue sky. They passed overhead as two groups of birds. 




Then I also observed two Monarchs fly slight to the southwesterly direction 
than the blue Jays. Later when I came home and looked up at the map, I found it 
seems it is better for the monarchs to go more westerly direction than the Blue 
Jays if they are to reach Mexico! Today on the whole I observed five migrating 
monarchs. I was most of the time in the lab today with no windows. So there may 
have been more passing by! 




Also I did take a short Mundy walk where I found a Palm Warbler and a Tennessee 
Warbler flying together and followed each other most of the time I watched. 




Cheers

The fall logo with leaf falling on the bird reminds me of Red-headed 
Woodpecker. Does anyone else also think the same? 


I think it is drawn from the RH Woodpecker photo.

Subject: Park Preserve warblers this morning
From: Anne Marie Johnson <annemariejohnson AT frontiernet.net>
Date: Tue, 23 Sep 2014 11:35:05 -0400
I was at the Finger Lakes Land Trust's Park Preserve in Freeville for about 
an hour this morning, starting at 8:45. It was mostly quiet except for the 
stretch of brushy habitat along the brook (heading left on the orange trail 
as you enter the preserve). In this area on the way in I found four PALM 
WARBLERS foraging on both sides of the trail, and on the way out there was 
a CAPE MAY WARBLER mostly foraging in the conifers.

This stretch of trail also had at least two COMMON YELLOWTHROATS, one of 
which sang occasionally; two EASTERN TOWHEES counter calling; a SONG 
SPARROW singing occasionally; as well as CATBIRDS, ROBINS, and CHICKADEES.

While in the preserve, I saw several groups of 5-6 BLUE JAYS moving south.

Jim Tarolli and I were there Monday just before sunset and the bird was feeding 
in the backyard of the house and invisible to the naked eye (and inconspicuous 
generally). 



If you're standing roughly across from the old silo, sweep right and look to 
the back edge of the cut area. There is a an old red mailbox post with a white 
mailbox on it, and an old red metal chair (the flash of red is visible to the 
naked eye). Last night the bird was feeding in the cut area in front of those. 
It is about 125 yards from the road and is inconspicuous in binoculars but can 
be seen well in the scope. Some left/right movement on the road may give a 
better view.

Having spent quite a bit of time in the past few weeks watching shorebirds at 
Knox-Marsellus Marsh, I've come to think of them as silent feeders - except for 
an occasional yellowlegs call or perhaps a flyover plover. But I just came 
across Andrew Spencer's blog on some shorebirds that breed in Alaska, with 
examples of their remarkable songs and calls. It has opened a whole new window 
on shorebirds for me. Here is the link. See what you think.

This bird is at 11162 Whitney Road, on Stoney Point, Jefferson county, 
Henderson, NY. You don't have to take Rt 81 to Henderson Exit, but you do need 
to get to NYS RT 3. Stoney Point is accessed off of Rt 3 either at Military Rd. 
or at Route 152. 


 Hopefully by the time you get this gets posted, you'll be there!

Yes, we thought the trip a great success, especially for the chance to
really compare the immature Short-billed and Long-billed Dowitchers side by
side.  The longer we looked at these birds with Dave, the more differences
we were able to discern.  I especially appreciated having Dave get us
focused on the difference in the tertial markings, and to study and discuss
these birds together.  Despite the rain, Ken got a couple of digiscoped
photos-- the first  shows plumage differences (LB left, SB right) and the
second shows general shape and color differences (LB right, SB left).

Yes, it rained after awhile, but not as drenching as a couple recent times I've 
been on the K-M dike. And the shorebirds were very flighty, perhaps due to a 
couple of Peregrine Falcons, making it difficult to scan through any group, let 
alone share IDs. And the breeze made scopes vibrate. And several flocks of 
shorebirds appeared to depart. And it was work to pick out the few individuals 
which were not Pectoral Sandpipers. But I must disagree with the early 
assessment of low diversity according to a few birders who departed 
precipitately when precipitation began. 


The following shorebirds were seen (by me; please say if you found others) on 
todays K-M dike field trip: 


American Golden-Plover - 1 juvenile on mud of Puddler with Killdeer as I left; 
reportedly fled Peregrine earlier 

Killdeer - 1 on mud of Puddler as I left; 1 heard overhead with departing 
Yellowlegs flock as I arrived 

Semipalmated Plover - 1 feeding & flying with large flock of Pectorals, etc
Greater Yellowlegs - several, mostly in deep NE water of K-M, also conveniently 
next to Lesser in Puddler 

Lesser Yellowlegs - flock(s) of a dozen or so
Pectoral Sandpiper - scores; the overwhelming number
Stilt Sandpiper - 2 seen together, but fairly close
Sanderling - 1 on distant mud, but seen well by many
White-rumped Sandpiper - 3, including one limping with somewhat injured left 
leg, among Pectorals 

Baird's Sandpiper - 1, among Pectorals, found fairly early & shown to a few 
others, but then lost 

Semipalmated Sandpiper - distant second in abundance
Least Sandpiper - 1 seen by me; someone else mentioned seeing 4
Short-billed Dowitcher - 4
Long-billed Dowitcher - 2

Most participants will recall only a single dowitcher, if any. The above 
dowitcher numbers & IDs were a treat for Diane Morton, Kenneth Kemphues, & 
myself who stayed long after everyone else. We found a dowitcher trio, and 
after considerable distant viewing through rain, we and they moved 
progressively closer, and the light got better, until we were confident of 
distinguishing 2 juvenile Long-billeds and 1 juvenile Short-billed by each of 
several criteria: size, shape, general color, superciliary, and tertial pattern 
(but not bill length, which was equal, although the Long-billeds' bills were 
thicker). Then we saw 2 more dowitchers in distant water to test our new 
skills: our initial assessment of them as Short-billed was verified when they 
joined the previous trio allowing direct comparison of each the above field 
marks. I found the 4th Short-billed in the distance between mudflats, but it 
was less cooperative, requiring faith in my recent practice. Ken & Diane may 
have some worthy photos from our exercise. 


Other birds of particular interest (at least to me):

Wood Duck - several in channel by road, at least 1 male in breeding plumage
Blue-winged Teal - 1 flushed as we arrived, and again as I left, this time 
with... 

Green-winged Teal - 2
Double-crested Cormorants - many, generally moved to Puddler
Great Egret - 2 as I arrived. I saw none while our group was there. Perhaps 
distant & backlit in Puddler? 

Northern Harrier - 2 immatures
Bald Eagle - 1 immature settled on the mud as we arrived, later 2 were together 
in the air over K-M 

Sandhill Crane - 5, a family of 3 and the local pair
Peregrine Falcon - 1 immature, 1 adult or at least blue above
Warbling Vireo - 1 along Towpath Road
Cliff Swallow - 1 among numerous Tree Swallows & some Barn & Bank (& Northern 
Rough-winged mentioned) 

House Wren - 1 at start of Towpath Road
Tennessee Warbler - 1, ID by sharp-eyed & knowledgeable young Isaiah from NYC; 
I barely saw the bird 

Nashville Warbler - 1 also reported by Isaiah
Magnolia Warbler - 1 also reported by Isaiah
White-throated Sparrow - 4 on Towpath Road as I left
Savannah Sparrow - 1 along dike, 1 along Towpath Road
Swamp Sparrow - 1 along dike, 3 along Towpath Road

The birds I saw along Towpath Road were mainly fruit-eaters, plus a couple 
flycatchers, and sparrows. Among warblers, all I got decent looks at were 
several Common Yellowthroats, one of which gave a strange song along the dike. 


Again, additions from others are welcome.

Thanks to Andrea Van Beusichem, Linda Ziemba, & everyone else at Montezuma NWR 
who helped make this possible; to Paul Anderson for leading with assistance by 
Susan Danskin, Dave Nicosia, Gary Kohlenberg (and others?); and to participants 
from NYSOA, as well as repeat participants who may live closer, for sharing 
interest and helping each other pick out and ID the birds. 


The next (and so far as I know, final) such field trip this year is this 
coming SATURDAY, 27 September, meeting at the Montezuma NWR Visitor Center at 
11am, and led by Mike Tetlow (and others?) from the Rochester Birding 
Association.

P.S. Apologies for my uncalled-for remark to Dave Nicosia, who as a 
meteorologist is not responsible for the actual weather, which was, as usual, 
accurately forecast.

Tony Shrimpton texted the CNY RBA to report:


"Northern Wheatear Bill-Abetta Roberts (blue) house, 1162 Whiney Rd (sic), 
Stony Point, Henderson, Jefferson County, 2:15" 



I believe Whiney should be Whitney. Tony has a camp on Stony Point but I'm not 
sure if he's passing it along or saw it himself.

There is an imm BCNH  AT  the swan pen which appears to be badly injured Its lying

On my final walk up Mt Pleasant before heading our west for a month, I passed 
the newly ploughed field at the far eastern end of Mt Pleasant Rd. Killdeer 
calls caught my attention and there were 8-10 of the them flying around. 
Shortly they were joined by a flock of about 50 Bobolinks, that swirled around 
for a couple of minutes before heading off south. Remembering Bridget 
Stuchbury's astoundingly good keynote address about songbird migration to the 
NYSOA banquet last night, I could not help but wonder where all those Bobolinks 
would spend the winterI know they do go south of the equator eventually

Last week-end, on Sunday, I wanted to take a walk in the late afternoon, so I 
too decided to explore Palmer woods. I was on the eastern side of the woods, I 
don't know particular names for the Palmer woods, in the larches there was an 
empid feeding actively. It kept calling "whit whit" as it foraged and shaking 
its tail fairly constantly. I got a good look at it and concluded that it was 
first year Yellow-bellied Flycatcher. I have watched adults shake their tail. I 
was planning on posting it but kept forgetting. Otherwise woods were very quiet 
except for the noisy Blue Jays.

Subject: NYSOA trip to Arboretum, Mundy Wildflower Garden and Flat Rocks
From: Meena Madhav Haribal <mmh3 AT cornell.edu>
Date: Sat, 20 Sep 2014 17:06:15 +0000
Hi all,

Today I lead a trip for the participants of NYSOA group. There were about 12 
people in the group. First we stopped at the second parking lot of the 
arboretum on the west road. We saw a couple of warblers fall down from the sky 
but they disappeared into the trees. Next stop was at the pine and spruce grove 
on the top of the ridge. Here we hit warblers coming form nowhere into spruce 
and pine trees. We spent most of the time here as it was perfect location with 
lots of fruiting trees and vines. 




Here are the list of the migrants we encountered:

Black-throated Blues 2

Yellow-rumped warblers 2 (only seen by me, there could have been more but they 
were too fast) 


Black-throated  Greens (at least three )

Magnolia (many)

Chestnut-sided (at least three)

Prairie (One a non breeding plumaged male)

Common Yellow-throat

Nashvilles

Rose -breasted Grosbeak

Scarlet Tanager

In the goldenrods, I think what I saw was an Orange-crowned warbler. We also 
heard a trilling song twice, which I think was of Orange-crowned, but Dominic 
who also heard the song was initially tending towards it but was not sure of it 
as we saw some Chipping Sparrows later. 




A beautiful Brown Thrasher in full view, and everyone got to see the bird very 
nicely. 




Lots of Robins young and old, Cedar waxwings, Starlings were enjoying the 
fruits. 


I think over all it was a great spot we spent two + hours.



Then we had usual other birds and overall the group saw 40+ species! It was 
nice day! Initially I was worried that we are not going to see any birds at 
all! 




Cheers

Subject: Red Phalarope
From: Gary Kohlenberg <jgk25 AT cornell.edu>
Date: Sat, 20 Sep 2014 02:25:44 +0000
Hi all,
 I lead a NYSOA trip this afternoon to E.Shore Park / Stewart Park area. Our 
first stop was E. Shore Park. While somewhat sparse in lake birds due to boat 
traffic we did manage to see a few birds including Hooded Mergansers hiding 
under the docks to the north. Our young, sharp-eyed, student birder, Truth 
Muller, spotted a small bird that looked like a dove in the water. Of course it 
was a Phalarope. In the distance and backlight I was unsure if it was a 
juvenile Red or Red-necked. The bill certainly looked heavier than I would 
expect for a Red-necked. I texted hoping to get more birders on it. Thankfully 
Jay, Kevin, LeeAnn and Dominic Sherony verified it was in fact a Red Phalarope. 
For Truth Muller every Phalarope was a lifer, so I think Red is a great species 
to start with. A big thanks to Dominic for perseverance as he was part of our 
group and got lost leaving the hotel. He was following the other black Subaru. 

 Stewart Park held only a few migrants, but was a good place to study gulls. We 
did have a great lineup at the Swan Pen. Great Blue Heron, Black-crowned Night 
Heron and Green Heron standing in a line at the peninsula. The Wood Ducks seem 
to be comfortable with trail traffic and provided good views. I heard a 
Yellow-rumped Warbler, but wasnt able to see it. 

 We walked the river side trail in Renwick Woods. There were few active birds, 
but on hearing some Chickadees we were able to phish in a few migrants. Very 
high and hard to see were Red-eyed, Philadelphia and Warbling Vireo, 
Bay-breasted Warbler and Northern Parula. I may be missing one or two that 
others saw. 

	It was a nice trip with a wonderful group of birders.  

Gary

Apparently there was a very large flight involving thousands of mostly thrush 
calls over western PA last night and around dawn. I think it was much lighter 
over eastern PA, as seems often to be the case. At Hawk Mt. in SE PA, a NE wind 
of 5-8 mph was enough to rustle leaves and mask calls (only 20 or so heard 
around 6 am), but I rarely hear many calls on windy nights even if there are no 
trees to rustle. The calm night of 9/17 was much better at Hawk Mt., with over 
500 calls in 20 minutes starting at 6 am, most Swainson's & Wood Thrushes (also 
lots of Wood Thrushes calling in the woods after daylight), with 13 Gray-cheek 
calls thrown in. I also rarely hear warblers in the dawn descent period, even 
when I find good numbers of them in the area after daylight.

  Andrew, et. al., 


 I havent gone through all of my recording data from last night, but I have 
certainly observed what you are mentioning: significant thrush vocalizations in 
the minutes immediately leading up to the start of civil twilight. Often, after 
midnight, there are very few warbler calls and equally few during the thrush 
descent. Herons and bitterns seem to be vocal in the first three or four hours 
of the night, and then wane after that. Im not sure what the cause or purpose 
is for this decrease in vocal activity in warblers after midnight. 



 Last night, there were hundreds of Swainsons Thrushes and Rose-breasted 
Grosbeaks calling, tens of Gray-cheeked Thrushes with a single potential 
Bicknells Thrush candidate, a good handful of Wood Thrushes and Veeries in the 
mix. No Hermit Thrushes. A couple of Scarlet Tanager candidates. At least one 
American Bittern, two probable Least Bitterns (Id like to discuss this later 
on NFC-L) and several Green Herons. Two American Woodcocks flew by shortly 
after the start of civil twilight, one stopping the wing twittering long enough 
to utter some very soft and gentle buzzy squeaks that Ive never heard before, 
then continuing with the wing twittering. 



 Also heard overnight were Ovenbirds, Black-throated Blue Warbler, 
Chestnut-sided Warblers, Savannah Sparrows, and many many unidentified 
interesting calls requiring much time I dont have right now to compare and 
evaluate. Great Horned Owl and a local rooster were calling early this morning. 
A couple nights ago, I saw one of our Flying Squirrels feeding on the squirrel 
seed cakes out front, after returning home late from work. 



  Last night was one of the more notable nights this migration season.


  Good night listening and birding!


  Sincerely,
  Chris T-H

 There is currently a fairly heavy liftoff going on in the Northeast and 
surrounding regions. The high pressure system situated North of Lake Ontario 
could make for a good push of birds down into the Northeast overnight tonight. 



          If you can, keep your ears skyward!
