Subject: eBird.org: Recent Additions to County Checklists
From: Ben Cacace <bcacace AT gmail.com>
Date: Sun, 26 Feb 2017 16:59:06 -0500
When working on the NYS eBird Hotspots wiki I'll compare the previous bar
chart list of species with the current one picking up any additions or
deletions. By going to each county's 'Overview' page you can determine the
date the species was added by county. Some are from newly submitted
checklists from many months / years ago.

It isn't possible to spot these additions from old checklists. On the
'Overview' page you can sort on 'First Seen' but if the species wasn't
added recently it won't appear at the top of the list.

For each county on the wiki click the 'Overview' link on the 'Explore a
Location' line:

Green represents a New York State first.

Subject: Oak Beach (Suffolk Co.): Eared Grebe and Barrow's Goldeneye - YES
From: John Gluth <jgluth AT optonline.net>
Date: Sun, 26 Feb 2017 13:51:55 -0500
Saw the continuing female Barrow's Goldeneye this morning from the small 
parking toward the western end of Oak Beach Road. Later, in a quest for a 
closer look at the bird with better lighting, I went to Overlook Beach and 
hiked east to the Sore Thumb (Fire Island inlet). The views of the Barrow's 
were not significantly closer from this vantage point, but the angle of light 
was much better - the bird's all orange-yellow bill really shone. But what 
really made the 2.5 mile round trip hike worth it was refinding the EARED GREBE 
found last weekend but apparently not seen since then (2/19). It was tucked 
into the NW corner of the cove, close to the private docks there, and likely 
wouldn't be detectable from the Oak Beach parking lot mentioned earlier. 
Excellent views were enjoyed from as close as 25 yards.

Subject: Ross's Gull (no) 2/24/17
From: Joan Collins <joan.collins AT frontier.com>
Date: Fri, 24 Feb 2017 22:59:54 -0500
Hi Everyone,

 

David Buckley searched for the Ross's Gull all morning in multiple locations
with no luck.  He ran into 2 birders who had seen a solo Ring-billed Gull,
but no Ross's Gull.  In addition to the cell phone caller who left a message
on our home phone about the Ross's Gull, Larry Master also received an email
message from a different person in Tupper Lake about the Ross's Gull being
back.  Until there is something more definite, you may want to avoid a long
trip to Tupper Lake.  I am down with a high fever and the flu, so I won't be
able to search this weekend.  Hopefully, other local birders will keep an
eye out.

BEGIN TAPE

Greetings. This is the New York Rare Bird Alert for Friday, February 24th
2017 at 4pm. The highlights of today's tape are TOWNSEND'S SOLITAIRE,
SANDHILL CRANE, BLACK GUILLEMOT, DOVEKIE, EARED GREBE, PINK-FOOTED GOOSE,
ROSS'S GOOSE, BARNACLE GOOSE, BARROW'S GOLDENEYE, KING EIDER, LITTLE GULL,
BLACK-HEADED GULL and more.

A good week but most birds were holdovers and an even better week for those
able to travel north to see the CLARK'S GREBE in Oswego or the GREAT GRAY
OWL in Massena.

On eastern Long Island the TOWNSEND'S SOLITAIRE continues in Southold seen
near blue house #1625 North Sea Drive on Thursday when the Wainscott
SANDHILL CRANE was still feeding around the north end of Wainscott Pond or
in fields along Wainscott Hollow Road.

At Montauk the BLACK GUILLEMOT remained around the north end of Lake
Montauk near the inlet at least to Wednesday usually in the vicinity of the
docks off the parking lot at the end of Star Island Road by the Coast Guard
Station on Star Island. At Ditch Plains a BONAPARTE'S GULL flock, even that
a rare sight this winter, did attract the adult LITTLE and BLACK-HEADED
GULLS that had been noted earlier in the area. The LITTLE only on Saturday
and Sunday. The BLACK-HEADED at least to Wednesday. Also at Ditch Plains a
DOVEKIE was spotted just offshore Monday morning but flew off quickly. A
female KING EIDER mingling with a few Common Eider was still around Montauk
Point Monday. A RED-NECKED GREBE was off Camp Hero Saturday and an ICELAND
GULL continues around the west beach at the Montauk Harbor inlet.

Farther west at Fire Island Inlet an EARED GREBE was spotted Saturday and
again Sunday in the cove near the Sore Thumb as viewed from the small
fisherman's parking lot along Oak Beach Road. A female KING EIDER was
viewable from that lot starting with Saturday and on Monday a female
BARROW'S GOLDENEYE was also picked out in the duck flocks gathered there
continuing at least to Wednesday. The drake BARROW'S GOLDENEYE was still a
little west of the Sands Point Preserve on Tuesday and 2 female KING EIDERS
were present off Orient Point County Park Sunday.

Regarding the odd geese the PINK-FOOTED was still at Hendrickson Park in
Valley Stream Wednesday, the BARNACLE was seen again Saturday on the
private golf course off Long Island Avenue east of Wellwood Avenue and a
ROSS'S GOOSE visited Marratooka Lake in Mattituck Sunday. A GREATER
WHITE-FRONTED GOOSE spotted on the lake in Van Cortlandt Park in the Bronx
Sunday was still there Monday. Another was seen again at Wainscott Pond
Monday and one was in a huge Canada flock on the north side of Cook's Lane
west of Scuttlehole Road in Watermill with one CACKLING and 2 SNOW GEESE
last Saturday. Two TUNDRA SWAN were still on Lake Ronkonkoma today.
Continuing EURASIAN WIGEON were at Marine Park Salt Marsh Nature Center
Monday, on Eastport Lake north of Montauk Highway last Sunday and on Fresh
Pond in Fort Salonga yesterday.

A GLAUCOUS GULL was spotted on the East River Saturday this off the end of
East 51st Street and an ICELAND GULL was still visiting Prospect Park Lake
as of Wednesday with others continuing in Brooklyn.

One or two RAZORBILLS have been noted around the jetty at Jones Beach West
End recently and 3 LAPLAND LONGSPURS were near the Roosevelt Nature Center
there yesterday.

RED-HEADED WOODPECKERS were still in Central Park, Henderson Park and
Caumsett State Park this week and a few ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLERS continue in
the area. AMERICAN WOODCOCK are now displaying in decent numbers at
suitable locations.

Subject: various NYC & lower-Hudson birds, 2/20-24
From: Thomas Fiore <tomfi2 AT earthlink.net>
Date: Fri, 24 Feb 2017 19:30:10 -0500
 From Staten Island (Richmond County) thru Rockland County, NY & in  
Manhattan,
Monday-Friday, 20-24th February, 2017

yes, it is "spring-fever" ...as well as other fevers that are not  
mentioned herein... with temperatures in the 60's on multiple days in  
New York City & surrounding areas

Starting with a bit of standard/expected migration today, Friday 24th:  
in Central Park, a few American Woodcock have been in the park, with a  
minimum of 3 individuals all flushed - "unintentionally" by off-leash  
dogs which are a standard feature of almost any birding in that park,  
at all hours & locations (yes there are regulations, no not every dog- 
owner there follows, knows, or in some instances cares about that, in  
that park) - the woodcocks seemed to re-settle again but are sure to  
be skittish in most areas other than the few where dogs & humans might  
not disturb them; my sightings were in the north woods, and there've  
been at least a couple of woodcocks in the Ramble areas the past 2  
mornings, as well as around the entire region (many on territories,  
too);  also moving through at Central Park have been increasing  
numbers of icterids, some of them Red-winged Blackbirds and a majority  
Common Grackles (besides the several hundred grackles that  
overwintered), with a few Rusty Blackbirds in select and typical  
areas, as well as some Brown-headed Cowbirds which had been there in  
winter in low numbers as well;  a few Killdeer have come thru & one or  
more stopped in on the North Meadow ballfields, but may not have  
lingered - I've not refound them within 30 minutes or so after initial  
sightings, but they can show & hide even on a (large) sports field, &  
some can also be on the move diurnally.

On the CP reservoir, one Red-necked Grebe remains - the bird that had  
been released there some weeks ago; it seems to be fine, had fed well  
and has been observed using wings a bit, so perhaps as spring - here  
now? - actually comes along, it will move on;  I did not notice a loon  
of any kind this morning - but the common loon (or any loon) that was  
at the reservoir earlier in the week can easily be 'missed' at times,  
since they may dive frequently, and be sitting quite low in the water  
at times as well as moving about all portions of the reservoir.  There  
are ongoing Double-crested Cormorants at the reservoir (& elsewhere in  
the park at times) and these must be watched so as not to get 'loony'  
over.  Many of the duck species present in weeks past are around, &  
some shifting where they've been, or been more & less evident in the  
park. A duo of [American] Green-winged Teal were seen by many at the  
reservoir this Friday, & Wood Ducks continue in a few locations, as  
previously.

Many many other species are about, not the least of these being the  
1st-year Red-headed Woodpecker - which has gained much red about the  
head by now & is ongoing in the area of the park just west of East  
68th Street.
----
On Thursday (2/23) in eastern Rockland County, NY, I hiked up to 8  
miles of the blue-blazed Long Path (a path that connects the NJ side  
of the GW Bridge on the Hudson river in Bergen County, with New York's  
Catskill mountain range (& beyond, with extensions into the  
Adirondacks - I have in the past hiked on all of that path, in spring  
and other seasons, & it is a wonderful experience of part of NY  
state's wild, natural, as well as historic land & water -scapes) - my  
hike on Thursday was in the afternoon hours and began in Nyack going  
to near South Haverstraw (Congers) on the woods & river-cliff trails  
(there are various possible trail options) & during the hike there, I  
came across:  80+ Vultures, of which more than 15 Black, the remainder  
Turkey Vultures - and one adult Bald Eagle, 1 adult male Peregrine, 1  
Cooper's Hawk, a few Red-tailed Hawks, as well as the 2 most-regular- 
resident owl species of the area, Eastern Screech, and Great Horned.   
Other birds seen were Pileated Woodpecker, a "forest" flock of over  
100 American Robins (over an area of 3-4+ acres), Yellow-shafted  
Flicker (in Nyack late in the day), & various other more-expected  
species - nice to see a blackbird-grackle flock numbering in the many  
hundreds (perhaps 1,000+) at the Piermont marsh, a bit farther south  
on the Hudson, at near-sunset hour.
--------------------
Going way back to Monday (2/20), in Staten Island (Richmond County),  
NYC, on a day that took in dozens of sites & most of the day into dusk  
hours, about 75 species were found, a few of them long-lingering at  
their respective areas - a Red Crossbill (female-plumaged) & a minimum  
of 3 Pine Warblers (2 of those quite-bright males) plus Red-breasted  
Nuthatch, with some juncos, & a few other birds in the pine trees at  
the south parts of Midland beach boardwalk (a bit northeast of Miller  
Field's east end);  & the ever-present (or seems-so) Lesser Black- 
backed Gull farther down past Great Kills park (wherein I failed to  
find even the Horned Lark flock, much less a recently-documented  
Lapland Longspur (a once-very-reliable species in that park with  
horned larks);  other-wheres on Staten Island were a very good variety  
of rather expected waterfowl (missing going up to see the Blue-winged  
Teal at Willowbrook, but not knowing of it anyhow 'til later - a "good  
bird" in winter hereabouts, but not altogether unprecedented by any  
means in winter seasons in southeast NY) and many more birds, ending  
the day out with some Monk Parakeets that I was clued into by Howie  
Fischer, these not too far from the ferry terminal in St George (at  
the NE end of the island).  Thanks to many SI birders & others who've  
provided reports on many species of Staten Island, both recently &  
over the years!

Subject: Ross's Gull Phone Message 2/23/17
From: Joan Collins <joan.collins AT frontier.com>
Date: Thu, 23 Feb 2017 19:47:49 -0500
Hi Everyone,

 

I was out guiding today and just received my home phone messages - one of
them was from a cell phone number that I don't recognize.  It was a man who
said the Ross's Gull was back on Simon Pond today!  He mentioned that it
flew toward the Piercefield Flow.  (A few of us wondered if that was where
it went - we checked the Setting Pole Dam area several times, but no luck.
Most of the Piercefield Flow area is inaccessible.)  The man didn't leave
his name and I haven't been able to reach him at his cell number.  I'll keep
trying.  His call came in at 2:30 p.m.  Very exciting news!

Subject: Fwd: Clarks Grebe YES

Date: Thu, 23 Feb 2017 19:18:02 -0500
Good Evening Peeps,

Menachem's + post on the Clarke's Grebe ended up again in my junk mail so I am 
forwarding his post to the list serves (see below). It followed an earlier 
negative post from him, so the folks who re-found the bird put in some work and 
deserve a shout out for their persistence. 


Please post both negative or positive to both list serves if twitching 
tomorrow. 


Cheers,

Subject: eBird.org: Recent Additions to County Checklists
From: Ben Cacace <bcacace AT gmail.com>
Date: Thu, 23 Feb 2017 17:39:00 -0500
When working on the NYS eBird Hotspots wiki I'll compare the previous bar
chart list of species with the current one picking up any additions or
deletions. By going to each county's 'Overview' page you can determine the
date the species was added by county. Some are from newly submitted
checklists from many months / years ago.

It isn't possible to spot these additions from old checklists. On the
'Overview' page you can sort on 'First Seen' but if the species wasn't
added recently it won't appear at the top of the list.

For each county on the wiki click the 'Overview' link on the 'Explore a
Location' line:
— http://ebirding-nys.wikispaces.com/Birding+in+New+York

Yellow highlights a species added for the first time over the past few
months.

*Nassau County:*
Rufous Hummingbird (7-Oct-2016)

*Rensselaer County:*
Ross's Goose (9-Jan-2017)

*St. Lawrence County:*
Thayer's Gull (18-Feb-2017)

*Wayne County:*
Thayer's Gull (21-Jan-2017)

I'm looking at three Lapland Longspurs in a mixed snow bunting and Horned Lark 
flock in front of the Theodore Roosevelt nature center at jones beach, Nassau 
county. One of the Longspurs is a breeding plumaged male. 

Earlier today, I had two Razorbills off the jetty. 

Good birding,

Subject: Clarke's Grebe Oswego Harbor, Oswego County NY...

Thanks Menachem for the earlier post.

Here are some additional details on the Clarke's Grebe initially identified as 
Western which was reported at Oswego Harbor this morning. See report from the 
Oneida list serve below. 


http://birding.aba.org/mobiledigest/NY08#1245338

Later on, other birders obtained enough documentation that appears to rule out 
Western. See the eBird checklist link with photos and vocalizations.

From: Menachem Goldstein <goldsteinm95 AT yahoo.com>
Date: Wed, 22 Feb 2017 23:24:03 +0000 (UTC)
The large grebe which was earlier reported to ebird as a Western Grebe is now 
thought to be a Clark's Grebe per Tim Lenz and Brad Walker!  This appears to 
be the First State Record! 

Hope it sticks!

From: Bruce Horwith <bruce.horwith AT gmail.com>

The black guillemot and iceland gull continue at Lake Montauk. I didn't
find the black-headed or little gull at Ditch Plains, but there were 3
purple sandpipers in with the sanderlings. But the highlight for me was
seeing a bat, presumably a little brown bat, working the insects over a
small pond in my yard in East Hampton. This was the first time I have seen
one here so active during the day, and by far the earliest bat activity I
have seen out here.

Date: Wed, 22 Feb 2017 14:15:52 -0500
The American Bittern at JFK Memorial Wildlife Sanctuary continues. It flushed 
from a channel away from the lot and flew towards the roadside marsh. Jones had 
a nice spread of expected winter species, including three Razorbills off the 
end of the jetty. I caught up with Harlequin Ducks at Point Lookout, though 
they were apparently at Jones before a dramatic raptor-on-raptor battle nearby 
sent them fleeing. Cedar Beach Marina was mostly quiet, but the male 
Boat-tailed Grackles are displaying. 


Cheers!

The female Barrow's Goldeneye continues near the Sore Thumb with her Common 
cousins. No eiders in sight and no grebes other than a lone Horned. A nice 
consolation prize was the chance to record vocalizing Red-throated Loons. I'd 
never heard them call before, even when I've seen individuals in breeding 
range! More searching and reports to follow. 


Cheers!

For those thinking about coming up to Robert Moses State Park near Massena

around 5:00pm until dark on Robinson Bay Road. A chorus of Coyotes was a

Subject: Central Park, NYC 2/21
From: Thomas Fiore <tomfi2 AT earthlink.net>
Date: Tue, 21 Feb 2017 18:22:02 -0500
Tuesday - 21 February, 2017 -
Central Park, Manhattan, N.Y. City

tapping into Pat P's prior reporting for the CP reservoir,
as of 4 p.m. this (Tuesday, 2/21) afternoon there were, at the  
reservoir:

Common Loon (one)
Red-necked Grebe (one: this the one that was 'rehabbed', & then  
released into the reservoir)
Pied-billed Grebe (two)

Each of these in basic ("winter") plumage, and all have been moving  
about the entire reservoir when viewed.  The Loon (& any loon that  
drops in at the CP reservoir) may be hard to spot at times as it (any)  
can ride low in the water &/or be diving often, and not be as  
'obvious', at times.

There are also a few Double-crested Cormorants in the park, which tend  
to come & go: often one or more in the reservoir, to be sorted out in  
grebe & loon-seeking.  I've seen as many as five cormorants there, &  
that many at times on the CP reservoir alone in the past few days.

Hooded Mergansers continue in the park, but are fewer than had been,  
the better site just recently seems to be the Meer, but at least two  
(a pair) were at the reservoir today, seen in in the NE quadrant in  
afternoon.     Northern Shovelers continue in excellent numbers on the  
lake, and to a lesser extent on up to 3 other waterbodies (reservoir,  
Meer, & Turtle Pond).

Many of the other recent species in Central Park are continuing: one  
worth a new mention is the Red-headed Woodpecker that's west of East  
68th Street in the park, now showing much red about the head in good  
views and bright sun.

The strange shorebirds of the forest are starting to ramp up their breeding 
displays. I witnessed multiple males peenting and sky dancing yesterday evening 
in Great River and early this morning in Woodbury. Territorial disputes took 
place at both locations, featuring vocalizations I'd never heard as rivals 
strafed each other. At least one interested female was seen flying from the 
immediate vicinity of a singing male.

Subject: NYS Ornithological Association Winter Waterfowl Weekend
From: Joan Collins <joan.collins AT frontier.com>
Date: Tue, 21 Feb 2017 09:53:06 -0500
List Members,

 

Just a reminder about this weekend's NYSOA event: The New York State
Ornithological Association (NYSOA) is hosting a Winter Waterfowl Weekend in
Oswego on February 25 & 26, 2017.  Saturday will feature a snowshoe walk on
the Rice Creek Field Station trails in a variety of habitats at 1 p.m. with
Paul Richardson and Dr. Michael Schummer.  (Depending on snow conditions, if
snowshoes are needed, they will be provided for the afternoon walk.)  At 3
p.m., Dr. Schummer will present "The History and Importance of Waterfowl
Conservation" at the Rice Creek Field Station of SUNY Oswego.  A social
dinner will follow at Vona's Restaurant (http://www.vonasofoswego.com/ ).
On Sunday at 8 a.m., the main field trip to Oswego Harbor and River, Fair
Haven State Park, and West Barrier Bar County Park will be led by Paul
Richardson.  Participants will be looking for waterfowl, gulls, and Snowy
Owls.  The presentation and dinner are open to the public (please register
for the dinner).  Preference for the field trips will be given for NYSOA
members.  A waiting list for non-members will be kept in the event the trips
do not fill (limit of 25 people).  For more details and information on how
to register, please visit the NYSOA website at http://www.nybirds.org/ .

 

Thanks to Mary Beth Warburton, NYSOA Field Trip Chair, and Gerry Smith,
NYSOA Conservation Committee member, for planning this weekend event!

Subject: Notes from Jones Beach
From: "syschiff" <icterus AT optonline.net>
Date: Mon, 20 Feb 2017 22:09:06 -0500
Jones Beach West End, 20 February

A RAZORBILL was feeding along the inlet rocks just before the =
fisherman's parking lot. Beautiful close up views.

Approaching the inlet walking along the ocean, the sky was filled with =
NORTHERN GANNETS (about 150) fishing and plunging into the ocean. I =
followed a half dozen flying closely in a line (a bit different from the =
usual random movements), so I followed them. The lead bird suddenly =
pulled up and dove into the water followed one by one by the next 5. An =
amazing precision performance. Made my day.

Drifting back to the parking lot, we heard a singing HORNED LARK in the =
upper swale. The lark flocks have thinned out in the last week. When I =
heard the song.I realized the birds are not gone, but are on the nest =
now. Lark breeding begins the first of February in the upper dunes at =
the West End lot and in front of the Nature Center.. Waiting patiently, =
we finally located the bird and showing its signature horns.

I have not seen anyone else post an update about these birds today: the
Black Guillemot was seen in its usual place by about a dozen observers
around midday today. I was not able to see the Little Gull nearby, and as
far as I know no one else was either, though a Black-headed Gull was
present.

near or at the Stone Quarry at the corner of North Hoster and Canoga Roads. 

     One and sometimes two GREAT GRAY OWLS continue to be seen daily at 
Robert Moses State Park near Massena in St. Lawrence county. Today’s sighting 
was on Hawkins Point Road. 


Migrants this week.
     An OSPREY seen this week in Onondaga County is most likely a migrant. 
Increasing numbers of RED-WINGED BLACKBIRDS and TURKEY VULTURES, birds usually 
seen here in small numbers in winter, seem to indicate these are also probably 
migrants,

Subject: Re: Barrow's Goldeneye, Common Ravens-Sands Point
From: matt klein <matt.klein AT hotmail.com>
Date: Mon, 20 Feb 2017 14:22:16 +0000
Barrow's Goldeneye present along with common goldeneye, greater scaup, and 
long-tailed ducks among others. 


... to be continued.

On Feb 11, 2017, at 8:22 PM, GQ > 
wrote: 


I found the Barrow’s Goldeneye this morning off Prospect Point (Sands Point) 
around 11AM comfortably associating with a loose flock of Common Goldeneye. I 
was able to pick it out fairly easily with binoculars but a scope would have 
yielded much better views. 

Long Island Sound this this morning was very calm.

Prospect Point is about a 3/4 mile walk west from the Sands Point Preserve. If 
you plan on going there, my advice is to check the tides first. At high tide, 
like this morning, you will not be able to walk past the first private homes 
west of the preserve. The water will be anywhere from ankle deep to knee deep 
on a regular high tide. You can tip-toe (like I did today) on top of the 
home’s 12-inch wide seawall but this is quite dangerous even though it’s 
only about a six-foot drop into the water. (It’s also trespassing). I only 
carried binoculars today, a scope would really be pushing your luck on top of 
this wall. 


You can park in the lot in front of Hempstead House ( the western most castle 
in the preserve) and make your way, by hook or by crook, down to the beach as 
there are no longer any steps going down from the seawall. (storms keep washing 
away the stairs). 

The seawall in the preserve is much wider but it is in a deplorable condition; 
very dangerous to walk on; stick to the beach unless you’re an idiot like me 
who insists on proving to nobody that I can walk on top of it. :) 


Also today, the now resident pair of Common Ravens were out and about around 
the main parking lot in the preserve. I’m hoping that they pick a breeding 
spot on top of the one of the castles or the water tower. 


Cheers!!

Subject: Manhattan NYC - Canvasbacks (2/19) - addenda@dusk
From: Thomas Fiore <tomfi2 AT earthlink.net>
Date: Mon, 20 Feb 2017 07:11:55 -0500
Manhattan island, N.Y. City
Sunday, 19 February, 2017 - at 5:50 p.m. + in the evening, i.e.-

at dusk, or about 30 minutes past sunset, the 17 Canvasbacks  
(including 10 bright adult males) near Riverbank State Park were on  
the Hudson (very near shore) on the north side, or adjacent with about  
West 146th Street, rather than the south side where most sightings had  
been reported from.  I was passing by and noticed the flock there on a  
late-day bicycle ride of the Hudson river-green-way path which passes  
all of this area.

At about 3:45 p.m., a sub-adult Bald Eagle was moving over central  
Harlem (USA) going roughly west-northwest, perhaps moving across from  
the western-most zone of  Long Island Sound over towards the Hudson or  
perhaps, New Jersey. The eagle was viewed from east Harlem, closer to  
the East River-Harlem River confluence.

good birding,

Tom Fiore

Around 3:30p today a Common Raven was seen north of 74th St. near York Ave.
getting dived on by a small group of crows. It settled on 444 East 75th St.
for a few minutes with the crows still diving on the larger corvid which
eventually lifted and headed towards the East River.

Manhattan island, N.Y.C. -

Sunday, 19 February, 2017 -

17 Canvasbacks continue this Sunday morning at the Hudson river, just  
north of the (west) Harlem piers park, adjacent to a Fairway  
supermarket that's off (under) the West Side Highway - the ducks were  
viewed from the narrow pathway (watch for bikes), to the north of the  
park with the public piers; they can and do go beneath the aging- 
wooden pier areas and may be rather hidden at times; as well as not  
being in this location - when they may visit the opposite (New Jersey)  
side of the Hudson, a mile or more distant.  A lone American Coot also  
continues, a bit south of this group of ducks.  (these birds were seen  
& photographed today at 8:45 am, & were seen thru the day on Saturday  
by many observers, as well as being seen in prior weeks, in varying  
numbers, and times of day.)  Thanks to many who updated on this now- 
scarce-in-Manhattan species; some were also recently noted at the East  
River as seen from a vantage point in the east 50's on Manhattan.
---
At Central Park (also Manhattan, N.Y. City), the first-year Red-headed  
Woodpecker remains near the path just west of East 68th Street inside  
the park from Fifth Ave., this bird now exhibiting much red in the  
"hood" as it comes farther into alternate plumage.  The woodpecker was  
active as early as 6:45 a.m. this very mild Sunday morning.

At the CP reservoir, a Red-necke Grebe continues its' post-rehab.  
stay, & a Common Loon continues as well, both of these in basic  
(winter-type) plumage & can be diving & moving all about the entire  
reservoir;  also, there are some Double-crested Cormorants present  
there (& in other water-bodies of the park) now, & a bit of caution is  
needed in making ID's on loons or larger grebes from a distance.  Many  
gulls were already present by the time I was checking the reservoir at  
7:20 a.m., and more were coming in, so it may be worth further  
checking thru the day, for species beyond the three regulars of winter  
(& at most times, those of course being Ring-billed, American Herring,  
& Great Black-backed).  - A Glaucous Gull at the East River, found by  
David Barrett of Manhattan this week, may be continuing and might be  
viewed from a few vantage points in the 50's-90's of the east side of  
Manhattan, & perhaps as DB had done, from the southern end of  
Randall's island scanning south - a scope may be useful for best  
potential viewing & it can be better in afternoon for less sun-glare,  
unless an overcast day. (I do not know if this gull is present now!)

Hooded Mergansers are distributed on at least 4 water-bodies, but have  
been a bit skittish with Turtle Pond recently & more often at the  
Meer, the reservoir, & on the Lake; Wood Ducks have been at the Meer,  
reservoir, Lake, & the Pond (seen in each of those locations this  
Sunday morning, with some effort);  a drake Northern Pintail was still  
at The Pond & a single Am Coot, with the comical trio of [feral sorts  
of] Muscovy type ducks, which very early this morning were within  
Hallett Sanctuary, then out to the Pond proper.

A Red-throated Loon seen for just 2 days in a row at the CP reservoir  
seems to have departed again, this was seen & photographed by just a  
few of us, 1st noted by Nancy Pinnell in an eBird report from  
Wednesday; on Thursday, the Red-throated was not easy to spot for some  
hours, as it continued to ride low in the water, not from distress but  
as a method of feeding, which it was doing a great deal of; at the end  
of the day Thursday a 1-hour further effort did not reveal the Red- 
throated again, just the basic-plumaged Common (all the park's grebes  
& loons so far this winter have been in basic plumage, as is most- 
often seen thru this time of year).

There have been 2 Pied-billed Grebes wintering at the reservoir, which  
continue now.  Other CP waterfowl include Gadwalls, Buffleheads,  
Northern Shovelers (in very good numbers on the Lake, with more on at  
least 3 additional CP water-bodies), Ruddy Ducks (3 water-bodies, but  
most scarce at the lake), and other very common species;  a Great Blue  
Heron now with nice hanging plumes is regular at the Pond & sometimes  
in other areas in the park (seen at the Pond this Sunday very early).

Birds heard singing, &/or calling, these very mild mornings include:

Mourning Dove,  Red-headed Woodpecker,  Red-bellied Woodpecker,   
Yellow-bellied Sapsucker,  Downy Woodpecker,  Hairy Woodpecker Yellow- 
shafted Flicker,   Blue Jay,  American Crow,  Fish Crow (2 - Meer),   
Black-capped Chickadee,  Tufted Titmouse,  Red-breasted Nuthatch (just  
2),  White-breasted Nuthatch,  Brown Creeper,  Carolina Wren (one has  
been very vocal for many days now in the Ramble area, & there are  
others in the park now),  Ruby-crowned Kinglet (at least 2 are  
present, one in the Ramble, another at the Pond area; that latter was  
also heard giving calls - only, not song, very early this Sunday),   
American Robin,  Eastern Towhee (males & females, there are as many as  
5 present in the park, one male is regular just north of the Boathouse  
area, another is often west of Hallett Sanctuary; these 2 were each  
heard singing & calling this Sunday), [red] Fox Sparrow (partial,  
"tune-up types of song),  Song Sparrow (not quite in full spring-mode  
voice & not that frequent yet),  Swamp Sparrow (a few weak songs heard  
from one or two at The Pond, where they wintered),  White-throated  
Sparrow (often heard "tuning-up" for spring, not in full voice yet, at  
least not many & not often),  Dark-eyed [Slate-colored] Junco (not too  
many singing),  Northern Cardinal (singing for weeks by now),  Red- 
winged Blackbird (some have given songs, many have passed thru in the  
last ten days on migration, even a few females which is earlier than  
50-year average or typical dates),  Rusty Blackbird (the shy one by  
the Pond is occasionally vocal, bit much more often very quiet and  
also can be very skulking at the edges, it's been on the south side of  
Hallett some days where especially hard to pick out in the dark-shaded  
shore areas & is not obtrusive there),  Common Grackle,  Brown-headed  
Cowbird,  Purple Finch (a few have been occasional in the north woods  
of the park, but hard to pick out when not singing or very active),   
House Finch,  American Goldfinch  (calling often, not noted truly  
singing that much).

Additional species seen in these 2 days -  Turkey Vulture, Canada  
Goose, Brant (at Hudson River, not in or over Central Park),  American  
Wigeon (ongoing drake on the Hudson near about West 165th-175th  
Streets often with some mallards),  American Black Duck,  Red-breasted  
Merganser (few here & there on the Hudson),  Bald Eagle (2 recent  
sightings of adults, by the Hudson up near the GW bridge area),  Sharp- 
shinned Hawk,  Cooper's Hawk  Red-tailed Hawk,  American Kestrel,   
Peregrine Falcon,  Hermit Thrush (silent, in Central Park),  Gray  
Catbird (also silent when seen, CP), Northern Mockingbird (as for  
catbird, in recent days), Brown Thrasher (also silent, in 3 locations  
where very regular in the park - one being in the Ramble), European  
Starling (usual cacophony), Cedar Waxwing (few noted in past week, all  
nearly silent),  Field Sparrow (one, north end, quiet when seen at  
compost area - north),  House Sparrow (various cacophony at times) and  
feral pigeon (some 'coo-ing', at times).

I covered my Roughleg route for the last time this season. I started at the
Shawangunk Grasslands and then hit eight stops in the Black Dirt Region of
Orange County. I tallied seventeen Rough-legged Hawks, which means there
was a recent influx.

Subject: Top 10 Locations Reviewed (NYS eBird Hotspots)
From: Ben Cacace <bcacace AT gmail.com>
Date: Sat, 18 Feb 2017 09:01:23 -0500
The wiki pages for the Top 10 locations (single and grouped locations) have
been reviewed for the 20 counties that currently have dedicated pages for
hotspots. The locations promoted to top 10 are highlighted green. The site
that was replaced still has a page dedicated to it but is 'static' meaning
it doesn't need monthly maintenance except for the addition of new
informational links.

Check out the Putnam County which now has pages for all locations. The
color coding on the alphabetical listing of counties is violet for Putnam
to show that all locations have 'static' pages including the Top 10.

*HAMILTON COUNTY*
(+) 'Raquette Lake' (2 locations)
(-) 'Shallow Lake Trail'

*ONONDAGA COUNTY*
(+) 'Onondaga Creekwalk' (2 locations)
(-) 'Baltimore Woods Nature Center'

*TOMPKINS COUNTY*
The following three locations were moved out of the 'Cornell University'
page since they may get lost there not having 'Cornell' in the name:
(-) 'Stevenson Rd. Game Farm and Compost'
(-) 'Stewart Ave. Bridge, Ithaca'
(-) 'Thurston Ave. Bridge'
