Subject: Owl
From: "ccspagnoli AT hotmail.com [oneidabirds]" <oneidabirds-noreply@yahoogroups.com>

On Sunday, while driving west on 173 out of Manlius at about half past noon, I 
had an odd silhouette pass over the road - all rounded wings and slightly 
projecting blunt head and very little tail. It took me a few seconds before I 
realized it had been an owl. 


Size and specifics about the shape were difficult to estimate as I only had a 
quick glimpse of the bird and it was up above the treetops with no reference 
points for scale. However, my best guess is that it was either an Eastern 
screech-owl or a short-eared owl. 


Good birding and happy native grouse species consumption day!

Greetings,
There was an interesting Canada Goose with a tuft on its head at the 
north end of Skaneateles Lake today.  It was somewhat smaller than 
the other Canada Geese, but otherwise pretty normal looking.  The 
tuft resembles that on a Tufted Roman barnyard goose, but I saw no 
other sign that this might be a hybrid.  Some not-so-great images can 
be seen at these links:

There was also one Cackling Goose continuing on the lake plus a 
normal mix of November waterfowl.

Good birding,

Jim Tarolli and I had poor looks from the east/west breakwall as it headed 
west, but review of bad photos suggest Black-headed. First photo is unedited, 
second crops and lightens to show bright orange/red bill. Unfortunately I had 
been messing with the camera to take silhouettes against bold cloud patterns or 
a better shot would have been possible. There are Bonaparte's hanging around on 
both the bay and pond and it may still be in the area - we're not sure if it 
continued west or looped back into the bay.

At 10:15 this morning, while meandering my way to my dog's agility class, I was 
driving north on North Rd in Ira, NY. I saw swans in a flooded cornfield on the 
north side of Tindall Td. (which Ts into North Rd. from the east) and went to 
investigate. 


There were 22 TUNDRA SWANS along with 57 CANADA GEESE and small numbers of 
MALLARDS and BLACK DUCKS in a flooded cornfield,before you reach woods, about 
1/4 mile east on Tindall Rd.

I was quite surprised to see a Brown Creeper today in my yard. While I was
watching the birds out the window, he suddenly flew in with a Red-breasted
Nuthatch. This is my second year in this location and the first time for a
Red-breasted Nuthatch.  I do have Brown Creepers in the summer, but have no
records of seeing one this late in the year.  The two birds stayed in close
proximity of one another for most of the day. The Creeper spent most of his
time in the Crab Apple Tree and the White Pines that are near the feeder
while the Red-breasted Nuthatch feasted on sunflower seeds and suet.

Hi everyone,

I searched the sanctuary yesterday afternoon & again this morning.
Sorry to say, no sign of the solitaire.

I'm not surprised that it only paid us a fleeting visit, as there are no
natural solitaire foods around here.

I last saw the bird mid-morning yesterday flying northwest in the direction
of Cazenovia.
I'm assuming the solitaire would like to find juniper trees, but I don't
know of any in the area.

Localities in Cazenovia that the bird may have gone to include Nelson
Swamp, Fairchild Hill/Lorenzo & Evergreen Cemetery.

If it does return here I'l post again.

Good birding,

Brian

Fourteen observers joined me on our annual field trip to Fair Haven Beach State 
Park, Little Sodus Bay and West Barrier Bar County Park in northern Cayuga Co., 
today. Forty species were seen, ( seven more than last year). Highlights among 
the waterfowl included: Tundra Swan, Northern Pintail, Redhead, Long-tailed 
Duck, Ruddy Duck, Red-throated Loon, Common Loon and Horned Grebe. Bald Eagles 
were seen high over the State Park. The only shorebirds were three Dunlin. 
Bonaparte's Gulls were in evidence on the large 

 pond. A flock of Snow Buntings flew onto the beach at West Barrier Bar in 
front of the last two observers in our group. Good birding. Gene Huggins.

Hi everyone,

This morning we had a Townsend's solitaire in the sanctuary.

First seen by two observers around 0930 on a tree just outside a house
window. Notable was the white eye ring, grey upper-parts & paler grey
under-parts, pale areas on the wing, long tail.
Seen again a few minutes later in patch of olive trees & then in a white
ash tree where I tried to take photos despite sun glare. Then the bird flew
over the house when the prominent buffy wing stripes were clearly evident.
I have attached two very poor photos:
# 1 shows the white in the long tail, the characteristic pale areas in the
closed wing & the overall grey colors
# 2 this is even poorer than # 1 but with the eye of a believer one can
vaguely see the white eye ring, although by no means showing how prominent
the eye ring was.

We do have a few juniper bushes in the yard, but I haven't seen the bird on
them.

Good birding,

Brian White

With the cold weather continuing (it was 10 degrees here this morning) we
have a lot of feeder activity.  The Grosbeaks visit mostly in the morning,
but occasionally into the afternoon.  Today the groups are 5-6 at a
time,usually about 10 minutes,  but they are also feeding on sumac fruits
on the hillside and at our neighbor's feeders (those can't be seen from the
road, though).  Pine Siskins, Tree Sparrows, Tufted Titmice, Chickadees,
both Red and White Breasted Nuthatches, Juncoes, Mourning Doves,
White-Throated Sparrows, Fox Sparrows, many Blue Jays, Downy, Hairy, and
Red-Bellied Woodpeckers, House and  Purple Finches, many Goldfinches, a
single Chipping Sparrow on suet, and Turkeys gleaning under the apple tress
on the hillside.  We have seen and heard Ravens and Crows daily, and had a
Merlin hunt the feeders yesterday (perched right on the porch railing).  A
neighbor continues to observe an adult Red-Headed Woodpecker at her
feeders; she is near wetlands on Route 80 just east of Wilcox Road.

Good birding to all,

                      I looked the grosbeak up in the 
Sibley's Field Guide and it looked like a first winter male, as shown in that 
guide. I do see now how similar the first winter male rose breasted grosbeak 
looks to the adult non-breeding female of the black-headed grosbeak. I did not 
see the grosbeak today, but will look for it tomorrow and report. I did not 
notice the bicolored bill, but was concentrating on other field marks. I live 
in Syracuse adjacent to a heavily wooded city park.

Subject: Baltimore Woods - Fox Sparrow & (OT) winter moths
From: "Ken & Rose Burdick kenburdick AT ieee.org [oneidabirds]" <oneidabirds-noreply@yahoogroups.com>
Date: Sun, 16 Nov 2014 20:52:34 -0500
Rose and I took a walk at BW today it was pretty quiet, but we did 
find a Fox Sparrow in a spruce stand on the Boundary Trail and a 
Belted Kingfisher at the beaver ponds.

Please excuse this off topic bit. Hopefully it is of interest.  On 
the Valley Trail, we came across swarms of male inchworm moths flying 
throughout the woods - about 500 or so in all.  Rose found a female 
as well!   I took some snapshots and posted them on 
Flickr.   https://www.flickr.com/photos/57203365 AT N04/15805415531/

I'm thinking that they are probably Bruce Spanworm moths, and not the 
invasive Winter Moth from Europe.  Most were lightly marked, tan 
overall, and one was well-marked gray, so maybe there were two 
species?  Very challenging!

Good birding (and bugs),
Ken

I still have a single CHIPPING SPARROW hanging around feeding with the American 
Tree Sparrows, Dark-eyed Juncos, and White-throated Sparrows under my feeders. 
Other visitors joining the “usuals” include several Red-winged Blackbirds, 
a Common Grackle, and a Pine Siskin.

In addition to chickadees, a tufted titmouse, white-breasted nuthatches, and 
chickadees, I noticed pine siskins at my feeders today. I also have cardinals

This morning a CACKLING GOOSE flew over the South Meadows Nature Area. It was 
in company with a single line of 13 Canada Geese as they moved toward the 
southwest. The bird was decidedly smaller than the Canada's in the front and 
rear. I was also able to see the very small bill and short neck. It may have 
been the same bird seen last Monday. Good birding. Gene Huggins.

Late this morning after the snow stopped there was a brief migration over the 
yard: 259 American Crows, 34 American Robins and 370 blackbirds; all looking 
for somewhere with less snow on the ground. 


This afternoon I checked some plowed roadsides in Mexico & Richland with these

We received about 4" of snow last night, and expect more later today.  This
has brought in Evening Grosbeaks in larger numbers; we counted 15 on the
feeders and in the big maple trees by the road.  Right now the flock seems
to be on a stand of sumac trees with heavy fruit, just above the house  on
the hillside.  Several White-Throated Sparrows are scratching on the ground
below the feeders.  Still seeing Siskins daily, as well.  The activity is
pretty heavy; it got down to 17 degress early this moning.

Good birding to all,

An interesting assortment of birds at the feeder this morning, including a 
carolina wren and a red-bellied woodpecker at the suet. My next door neighbor 
has two bluebirds carrying nesting material to a nesting box.

Along with the usual A Goldfinches, House Finch, Chickadees, D and H 
Woodpeckers, male E Bluebird came by around 7 am. I immediately put out some 
dried mealworms. Hope he returns. 

Last night after sunset, Carolina Wren singing in backyard.

Very sad news, Jim. I had been concerned about that bird, as you know. It
gave hundreds of people the thrill of seeing a Snowy Owl--birders and
non-birders alike--and was always in the birder buzz around CNY.

I hope it gets lots of lemmings in Snowy Owl Heaven.

I talked to Jean Soprano today, Tuesday. She informed me that the Snowy Owl
died yesterday. The bird was severely underweight and had other ailments as
well, but nothing related to being struck by a vehicle.

The CACKLING GEESE can be seen from early to mid-afternoon on Green Lake just 
southwest of Tully. 

 Please take Exit 14 for Tully. At the end of the exit ramp, (in front of 
Burger King), turn left and come to the STOP sign for the intersection of Rt. 
80 and Rt. 11A. Proceed straight across the intersection onto Lake Rd. 

 Go just pass the sharp curve and on your left you will find a large parking 
lot for your car. Walk across the road and go to the end of the chain-link 
fence on your right where you can look out onto Green Lake. The Cackling Geese 
have a tendency to associate with a smaller flock of Canada Geese. Be careful 
of traffic!! I thought that I saw them on Saturday, but I wasn't sure until 
this morning when they were in the nearby cornfield.

Two CACKLING GEESE were observed this morning at 9:30 in a harvested corn field 
across an alfalfa field from my backyard. They were in with a flock of 262 
Canada Geese. Compared the description found on page 12 of The Stokes Field 
Guide to the Birds from 2010. The two birds under question fit the description 
in the 

 paragraph labeled Shape: Small, relatively short legged, short-necked goose 
with a short stubby bill. Bill length less than 50% length of side of head; 
primaries projected past tail. Good birding. Gene Huggins.

I talked to Jean and Leonard Soprano of Kindred Kingdoms Wildlife

that has been hanging around the shopping plaza on Route 31 in Clay is now
at their facility. It was brought to them this morning. The owl was
struck by a car and is underweight.

Hello all,
 

 I saw the Snowy Owl at Clay twice in the past two weeks on trips to take 
family to and from the Syracuse Airport. I’ve added one photo of the bird 
crossing Route 31 to my Summer Snowy Owl album on Flickr. 

 

 On one of the two trips I also stopped at Montezuma and saw among other birds, 
a Glossy Ibis and Wilson’s Snipe (I believe) both first time sightings for 
me. I’ve added a few shots of the birds in two Flickr albums listed below. 

 

 I’ve also seen different pairs of adult eagles at Baldwinsville, Lake Delta, 
Woodman’s Pond, and at a radio tower in Schroeppel in the past couple of 
weeks. 

 

 The pair in Schroeppel were on the same tower I saw and reported a single 
Eagle back on October 11. The start of a nest was still there, but I'm not sure 
it had grown since October.

Derby was tempting, but I went for a loop around Otisco Lake instead.

The highlight today was a large flock of AMERICAN PIPITS in a muddy 
field on Rickard Road, 3/4 mile south of Rte 20 in the Town of 
Skaneateles.  A very conservative rough count was 170 birds, but 
realistically it was probably over 250.  I scanned about 100 of them 
for Longspurs, but found none mixed in.

Otisco Lake was pretty much as expected, but lacked shorebirds even 
though there was good habitat at Otisco Lake Park.  Land birds were 
scarce, and no raptors were seen. These are some selected birds from the day:

  3 Swan sp. - deep in the shimmer on west side of the lake
  1 Wood Duck - adult female at Otisco Lake Park
14 Ruddy Duck - Otisco Lake Park
23 Hooded Merganser - north bay
  1 Bonaparte's Gull - south end of the lake
  1 Belted Kingfisher - Otisco Lake Park
  2 American Tree Sparrow

good birding,
Ken

NE and N winds are backing to NW on Friday afternoon. I think this pattern 
might be better for Gannet than jaegers. Meanwhile to our west, deep S winds in 
the Midwest are coming this way for Saturday. Seems reasonable to think Cave 
Swallow might be caught up. After that strong W winds are on tap which could be 
good for swallows or lakewatch.
