Hi Hambirders and Oneidabirds

The below link will take you to a brief vid I took Saturday July 26 behind
the Target located on Hwy 31 just west of 481. This was taken around 7:30
pm.

These birds a fabulous, but this one certainly looks out of place in the
middle of a shopping area. I can't help but wonder if there may be some
food related to the pet store it is near.

Best wishes,

Rich Cohen

On a tree in my front yard I have a young YB Sapsucker and this surprises me as 
I don't remember seeing one here at home since 2002. Granted I'm not home 
watching the feeder area much. Does anyone know if they disperse alone about 
this time?

Two days in a row now I have seen a single Snow Goose feeding amidst the many 
Canada Geese at Wegman's playground area in Onondaga Lake Park. 


Some very fluffy-necked, friendly young Canada's walked right up to me this 
morning to check me out...brought mom and dad along, too, of course.

Hi,

Rose and I checked out the new trail on the SW shore between Pleasant 
Beach Rd. and the Visitors' Center.   We didn't see anything out of 
the ordinary using only binoculars, but there were a lot of puddles 
in the construction zones near Nine Mile Creek, for some possible 
shorebird habitat.  A lot of the shoreline is also scope-able with a 
bit of walking.
The habitat on top of the waste is pretty unusual.  There is a lot of 
red cedar and birch growing in there, so I'm looking forward to 
checking this for vagrants like Solitaires this winter.   We also saw 
a lot of colorful butterfly weed and viper's bugloss.  The 
amphitheater would take over much of this habitat, so I fear that it 
will be gone soon.

Good birding,

Ken & Rose Burdick

Last weekend and this week Monday I heard Wood thrush singing behind Clay 
Community church Morgan rd. just north of rt31 and to the east of great 
northern mall in the woods next to the parking lot. Also had one singing this 
week across Seneca River just north of a Grenadier a Village. I was surprised!

John and I counted the Chimney Swifts entering the large chimney at the old 
Hotel Oneida in downtown Oneida tonight. First one entered at 8:35 and the last 
at 8:53. Total was 110, with about 40 entering all in one stream like falling 
rocks.

I was fortunate again in Whiskey Hollow this morning. Hooded and Mourning 
Warblers were still in the upper part where I saw them recently. At the area 
where the Acadian Flycatcher was I again heard her but also heard another 
familiar sound, that of a fledgling Barred Owl. I ran for the camera and was 
lucky to find it perched nicely for a pic. See it on flickr at

We saw an American Bittern on the SE side of Onondaga Creek just beyond the
inner harbor.

I am hoping someone can help us identify this bird.  It was desperately
trying to feed a giant baby cowbird.  Thanks. Lauren

Sorry so late reporting. Tried Saturday but it didn't go. We saw a Blue Winged 
Warbler up on the hill in Knoxboro not to far from the old dump. Heard lots of 
Willow Flycatchers but only saw a few. I am pretty sure I saw a Red headed 
Woodpecker.  Something flew out of the bush when we were watching the 
flycatcher.  I didn't see the head but the body was pure white and it had 
black and white wings and flew like a woodpecker.  


Also seen were:
 Scarlet Tanager
 Eastern Towhee
Rose-breasted Grosbeck
Song Sparrows
Goldfinch
Common Yellow throat
Brown Thrasher
Red Wings
Cow birds 
Crackles
Robins
Crows
Downey Woodpecker
Kestrel

Heard but not see:
Great Crested Flycatcher
Red-eyed Vireo
Killdeer
House Wren

I havent posted about our Merlins since early spring. The pair stuck around 
all spring and we located the tree holding the nest downhill from us along 
Onondaga Ave. We live two blocks away, directly above the nest tree so can see 
them coming and going quite well. We heard them every day and saw a lot of 
them, ditto Mickeys report, until the leaves grew. I saw them mate once. As 
the season has worn on we are sure now there are at least 3 total. Lots of 
noise and flying/chasing. We are in the third block of Summit Ave. Email me if 
you want a ring-side seat in our hammock.

I haven’t posted about the MERLINS lately, but I have been seeing and/or 
hearing them just about every day since they arrived in mid-May. The nest was 
visible from my backyard for a very short time, but once the trees leafed out, 
I could no longer see it. 


This morning, around 6 AM, I heard one of the Merlins calling and quickly

talons. It began to pluck the bird and then flew towards the nest tree, 
disappearing from my view. There was another bird calling from the direction

I decided to take a walk down the street to see if I could see the nest from 
the road. As I approached the nest tree along Rt 49, one of the adults started 
calling and flying around, the intensity of its call growing stronger as I 
neared the nest tree. I quickly spotted the reason for the Merlin’s increased 
agitation – there was a fledgling perched on a branch in a tree adjacent to 
the nest tree. I only saw and heard 1 fledgling, and I didn’t stick around 
all that long to search for another. I was satisfied to see the one. I snapped

I've put up several photos of the Great Shearwater. There are also photos of an 
unusual-for-July Snowy Owl being harassed by a Northern Mockingbird. Many 
songbirds-in-flight photos from May are also up: grackles, orioles, tanagers, 
waxwings, Purple Martin, Seymour the pheasant (a.k.a. Fred), raptors, etc. I 
have organized albums by taxonomic grouping as well as things like "diving 
ducks in the act of diving".

I had a vague recollection of another proper rarity on DeRuyter Reservoir and 
found the record: Brown Pelican in September '03, presumably having received an 
assist from Hurricane Isabel.

Just a quick update on the DeRuyter Reservoir (Madison County) Great Shearwater 
found by Gian Dodici on Friday morning. Last night there was an opportunity to 
rescue the bird, which was in distress, and get it to a wildlife rehabilitator 
where it could be fed and evaluated. The bird was weak but still feisty when it 
came off the water, and had not been hit (yet) by boat traffic. Thanks to all 
who assisted in the rescue, and I hope for positive updates on the bird's 
condition.

I stumbled (almost literally) on what I think is a GREATER SHEARWATER in
the woods adjacent to a small trib at the north end of DeRuyter Reservoir
this morning.  The bird seemed to be in decent condition so I released it
into the reservoir where it was last seen swimming in the northwest corner
of the reservoir.  Not sure how long it's been around, or how it ended up
in the woods, but it appears to be a long way from home.

Some friends I visited this summer said that they watched a great blue heron 
stalk, catch and swallow a chipmunk this summer. (This was on Wellesley Island, 
so it is not as though there were no fish around.)

Subject: [OneidaBirds] Great Blue Heron breakfast



While checking Bluebird boxes on a golf course that runs next to a small 
stream, I saw a Great Blue standing with something dark hanging from its mouth 
that caught my eye. The Heron was shaking a rodent. It would put it on the 
ground and pick it up to shake it again. He repeated this about 10 times before 
swallowing the critter. Quite a large mouse or vole I would guess. I was at 
quite a distance. 


Sadly in one box, I had one dead bluebird young with two others alive and 
hopefully well. I was glad for them to be able to remove their sibling, as the 
odor -- although I guess they don't have much sense of smell -- was memorable. 


It's nearly time for Cardinal Flower blooms, and I hope to see some along the 
banks of the golf course stream as in past years, but the stream was dredged up 
last year with the soil piled high along the banks and the plants may not have 
fared so well with the massive upheaval.

hopefully well. I was glad for them to be able to remove their sibling, as the 
odor -- although I guess they don't have much sense of smell -- was memorable. 


It's nearly time for Cardinal Flower blooms, and I hope to see some along the 
banks of the golf course stream as in past years, but the stream was dredged up 
last year with the soil piled high along the banks and the plants may not have 
fared so well with the massive upheaval.

Subject: Great Blue Heron breakfast

While checking Bluebird boxes on a golf course that runs next to a small 
stream, I saw a Great Blue standing with something dark hanging from its mouth 
that caught my eye. The Heron was shaking a rodent. It would put it on the 
ground and pick it up to shake it again. He repeated this about 10 times before 
swallowing the critter. Quite a large mouse or vole I would guess. I was at 
quite a distance.

Spent an hour and a half up at the old dump. Birds that I knew where: Catbird, 
Robin, Red Wings, Common llow Throat, Phoebe, Cedar Wax Wings, Song Sparrow, 
Gold Finch, Eastern Towhee. The three we weren't sure of was maybe a Viero, 
Bobolinks, and Eastern Meadowlarks.

A little sign of fall migration around the house today with two species that 
dont breed here. The first was a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher and the other was a 
male Golden-winged Warbler. My last record of a singing Golden-winged here was 
in 1999.

This morning I found a pair of nesting Red-headed Woodpeckers at West
Barrier Park, Fair Haven.

Here is the location of the nest:
https://www.flickr.com/photos/jtarolli9/14468295967/

Both adults were very active in bringing food to the nest.  I was there for
about an hour and a half, and they were bringing food to the nest the
entire time.  At one point, I saw one of the Woodpeckers to go the beach,
and pick insects out of the ground, then bring it to the nest.

I have read some where that they will build what looks like nests to ward off 
competitors.  Also that they will destroy a bluebird nest and eggs if you have 
bluebirds. Ours is singing all day too. He files between all the different 
nests we have in the yard. He is the only one we hear.

As I was birding in my backyard yesterday, I opened up one of my bluebird boxes and found it filled to the top with small twigs, presumably from an old apple tree. Over the past week, a House Wren has perched on top of this same nesting box, singing almost constantly. There is another House Wren that sings across from my home in the Quail Ridge Housing Development. Any ideas as to what is going on. Good birding. Gene Huggins.

Returning from Cazenovia midday on East Road, we saw a Golden Eagle feeding
on a deer carcass just south of Kissamee Farm... they lost a huge old maple
there in the recent storm.  The bird flew up but didn't go far; got a very
good look.  After turning onto our road from Route 80, we saw two Northern
Goshawks circling and hunting very close to the treetops just north of our
house.  They gradually moved up over Hunt Hill (Three Springs state forest)
and out of sight.  Quite a few new groups of babies at the feeders today,
including fluttering Rose-Breasted Grosbeaks, Baltimore Orioles, Titmice,
and Blue Jays, along with the usual visitors.  More Purple Finches than
usual today, as well.  Still hearing young Ravens making a great deal of
noise in the woods; they sound like someone in desperate straits!

Good birding to all,

  I had one of those mornings in Whiskey Hollow today. It started when I 
heard MOURNING WARBLER chipping. I got the camera and thought I could get a 
pic. As I approached the chipping both male and female jumped out of the bush 
into the road and went into full distraction mode. Both had food in their 
mouth. Try as I may I couldn't get a picture on the road. I eventually got the 
male on a branch at close range. Continuing down the road I started to hear 
ACADIAN FLYCATCHER female, but quite a distance from the nest I found a couple 
weeks ago. I followed her calling (not the song the male usually sings) and was 
rewarded with seeing her jump into a nest. 

  Pictures of both can be seen at my flickr site at

I woke around 6 a.m. to the sound of a Northern bobwhite calling regularly and 
leisurely from on or near my property. Presumably this bird was released for 
hunting. 


Also, a few weeks ago I checked out the green heron nest on my property, and 
there were two large chicks - one in the nest and one already branching out. 


Good birding.

A friend told me recently that a few years ago he heard Whip-poor-wills behind 
the Walmart in Rome on 69 heading toward Camden. I haven't been out there to 
check it out. Just FYI.

Betty Armbruster and I found 4 UPLAND SANDPIPERS this morning around 9:30 a.m. 
on North Gage Road in the town of Poland. One flew up from the field right next 
to the road along with a WILSON’S SNIPE. It joined the other three sandpipers 
sitting on fence posts on the far side of the field on the north side of the 
road. This was about half way between Route 8 and the intersection with Harris 
Road. We are assuming that this is probably a family group. 

  
 We were able to get good long looks at the snipe since it landed on the 
telephone line right ahead of our car. In addition, we found SAVANNAH SPARROWS, 
MEADOWLARKS, BOBOLINKS, and KILLDEER in the same field.

Hello all,

 

This morning I led a group of 9 birders on an Onondaga Audubon Society Field
Trip to Green Lakes State Park. Due to the warm temperatures I decided to
stay mainly in the wooded areas. Highlights were good looks at Bobolink,
Red-belied Woodpecker, Chestnut-sided Warbler and Indigo Bunting.  

 

Good Birding,

This morning we have been seeing many new Rose-Breasted Grosbeak babies,
begging and fluttering at the feeders.  The parent birds are offering them
bits of suet, grape jam, and sunflower seeds (the standard fare!)  At least
one family of Orioles has been visiting the suet and jam, as well, also
loudly clamoring for food.  Two baby White-Breasted Nuthatches arrived with
great noise and fluttering; the worn-looking parent bird was feeding them
sunflower seeds and suet bits.  I expect young Chickadees any day, judging
by the appearance of the adult birds.  Many new Purple Finches visiting
along with adults, and Field Sparrows on the suet daily.We have seen adult
and juvenile Red-Headed Woodpeckers at the suet; not able to be quick
enough for photos.  Two neighbors are also seeing them; hopefully, someone
will get a current photo.  Yesterday afternoon I saw a male Cerulean
Warbler at the edge of our lower meadow, in the trees above the spring
stream.  It flew off to the west up toward Three Springs State Forest.  I'd
not seen one this close to the road before.  A Northern Goshawk is hunting
the valley this morning; not much wind, looks like good updrafts. There are
lots of the usual feeder visitors, as well, including male and female
Indigo Buntings.  Two males had a singing duel yesterday afternoon, each on
a side of the 6' garden fence, carrying on for at least 10 minutes.  Loud!
We are doing our utmost to try to preserve this area in the face of
impending heavy industrial construction; this is too special a place to
lose, for our neighbors and ourselves  but more so for all the birds. Not
too many places have this combination of forests, wetlands, meadows, and
flowing springs.

Good birding to all,

Went to see the Monk Parakeets in Hector this afternoon. Beautiful birds...what 
colors. Also stopped at May's Pt Rd S to see Red-headed Woodpeckers and at Knox 
Marcellus where there were Black and Caspian Terns, Sandhill Crane, Great 
Egret, GW Teal, Yellowlegs, Bald Eagle, etc. Swallows lining the wires on 89. 


Great show from Parakeets and Woodpeckers!

*OAS FIELD TRIP*
*SATURDAY, JUNE 28*
*GREEN LAKES STATE PARK*

Our popular field trips to Green Lakes State Park continue. Led by birders
well acquainted with the park, each hike takes from three to five hours,
depending on trail length and weather conditions. These trips are a great
way for families and new birders to see local birds, and for experienced
birders to explore unknown places in the park. Right now, birds are still
singing and feeding young, and the park's mature forest can offer
surprising sightings.

Participants are asked to bring their own water and insect repellent.
Please contact Paul Richardson at 315-488-5022 for details on time and
meeting place for this week's trip.

I had an adult COMMON LOON fly over my yard this morning around 5:30. It 
appears to have taken off from Oneida Lake and was heading in a northeast 
direction. I guess it is running a bit behind schedule.
