Subject: [OneidaBirds] Peregrine Falcon




I went up to Phoenix to the boat launch to take a picture of the Barrows Golden 
eye. Could not locate it. Saw a Peregrine falcon instead with a bird it had 
captured . Caught me by surprise. the Peregrine was flying slow with the bird. 
Landed on a telephone pole. Was able to grab my camera and get some shots after 
it flew off with what was left of the bird. Not sure what kind of Bird it 
captured . Maybe some birders know from the pictures . posted on my flicker 
account.

This afternoon, Rose and I went for an exercise outing at the fish 
hatchery, and while there, (re) found the Hermit Thrush on the back 
trail.  It was along a sunny stretch of the creek-side trail, across 
from the wood duck house in the cattail marsh.  The bird was hanging 
out in the bushes with some Bluebirds, and gave us both good views 
even though we were sharing one pair of binoculars.  The hatchery is 
open until 4 PM.

The CHIPPING SPARROW continues to show up at the feeders at the 
house.  It will disappear for several days then be seen for 
several.  Also, four Pine Siskins visited the feeders for just one 
day, then were gone.

Good birding,

My first pair of Common Redpolls of the season showed up at my feeders this 
morning.   

A lone Pine Siskin showed up back on the ninth but haven't seen it since.

I led an Onondaga Audubon field trip today along the Oswego River today and we 
saw a good variety of waterfowl but very few gulls (and only the 3 common 
species). The female Northern Shoveler was still in Baldwinsville in the little 
open water remaining above the dam and the only Ring-necked Ducks and the lone 
cormorant of the day were in the open water by the islands in the river. In 
Phoenix Greg Dashnau had the Barrows Goldeneye in view when we arrived and 
there were 3 Gadwall in the river. 


Two Pied-billed Grebes and a male Wood Duck were still in Fulton at Indian 
Point and there were about a dozen Bald Eagles in Minetto. We ended in Oswego 
where the harbor was mostly ice-free but with few ducks (only 2 Long-taileds). 
In the open waters around the Museum and International Piers there were 5 
Canvasback, a raft of Greater Scaup and a Red-throated Loon.

Took a run over to see dark bird on gee road. Was in previously reported spot. 
On my way coming across tag road there was a light phase bird in a field fairly 
close to the road about a half mile from gee road. It was in the field on the 
north side in the lot with the for sale sign. Both birds see last two days.

seen from the boat launch area. A few fuzzy photos can be viewed below.

 I spotted what looks to be a Female Barrow's Goldeneye in Phoenix. It was at 
the fisherman's access directly across the river below the bridge with 8 female 
Common's. 


This is what a noted;

- all yellow bill, slightly smaller
- head shape blocky, tall in front, flat on top, darker than common's
- slightly larger overall, darker mantle, fewer white feathers than most 
common's 

- a white neck collar visible, none on common's

The bird stood out on many points.

I saw them at about 4:30pm and at 5:00pm they were gone, probably moving down 
river to be with the 175 other Goldeneyes. Many Goldeneyes were flying in at 
5:00pm.

Hello everyone,

Yesterday at 1645 I found a Snowy owl in Fenner, Madison Co. It was perched
on the top of a field-post west of Nelson Road.
I also did a fairly quick search of the nearby more traditional area for
this species in the vicinity of the Fenner Wind Farm without success.
A Northern shrike continues to be seen along Irish Hill Road in Erieville.

Good birding

Two hours at the Madison County landfill turned up four Iceland Gulls and two 
Glaucous under difficult observing conditions. Good number of gulls total (many 
Great Black-backed) but often on the pile and invisible. At Brewerton a first 
year male Surf Scoter continues. Only one Common Goldeneye. 



I have put up some new photos including: Raven with pizza, Rough-legged Hawk, 
Great Black-backed Gulls fighting, Irondequoit Bay goldeneye with orange bill, 
etc.

I have been seeing a single Carolina wren at my feeders here in the city since 
last September. Briefly, in the early fall I did see two at once but I'm petty 
sure there has just been the one for several months. This morning I was pleased 
to see two of them feeding closely together in the yard. I have hopes that I 
might have a breeding pair this summer. 

 

 I put out some freeze-dried meal worms but have not seen any evidence that any 
birds are feeding on them. The wrens prefer peanut hearts, natural suet, seeded 
suet cakes, and woodpecker seed cakes in that order. This morning, I got a 
laugh out of watching them. Apparently, they saw the blue jays pulling peanuts 
in the shell out of the spiral wreath feeder and decided that they would try 
them, too. I'm afraid those nuts in the shell are way too big for those little 
guys!

Last night I tried the Eastern screech owl whinny and tremolo in my back yard, 
not really expecting screech owl but curious to see what it would scare up. 
After about four minutes I had a response from the border of the yard: a kewp, 
kewp followed by a queer wail. It didn't have the quality of a screech owl 
whinny and I believe it was a Northern saw-whet owl. 


Back on Sunday I stopped by the northern fishing access in Brewerton and saw 
the same surf scoter as Bill later reported. There were also two adult bald 
eagles picking at something on the ice edge. Other birds present were common 
goldeneye, common mergansers, mallards, tundra swans, a couple of black ducks, 
and the three customary species of large gulls. 


Good birding.

There's been a Rough Legged Hawk over the fields on Gee, near Ditch 
Bank, on at least a couple occasions for the last month.  I keep 
forgetting to report it.

This morning about 9:30, I was driving on Route 5 in Kirkland. Just as I 
crossed the bridge over Oriskany Creek, I spotted two adult bald eagles 
overhead flying south following the direction of the creek toward the village 
of Clinton. From the way they were interacting, it looked as though they were 
an established pair. One adult eagle was counted in that general area during 
our Christmas Bird Count. 


 On my way home, I was driving on Gee Rd. on my way to the Great Swamp 
Conservancy when I spotted a beautiful dark morph Rough Legged Hawk on a 
telephone pole along the onion fields near Ditchbank Road south of Canastota.

Hi Hambirders.
Hi Oneida Birds

Here is a link to the Minneapolis newspaper and an update on the new
Vikings stadium. If you are in a hurry, I can save you time by telling you
there is no change, and that the Vikes will not be installing the bird
proof glass. But 3M is working on a coating they might try.

We continue to enjoy groups of Evening Grosbeaks several times each day,
mostly in the morning.  Today they have been feeding in a clump of sumac
with fruit still attached on the hill just southeast of the house, between
a white pine and spruce tree.  The numbers recently vary from 6 to 12.  A
Pine Siskin is still visiting daily, as are at least two Common Redpolls. A
single Chipping Sparrow is a regular on (and in) the suet baskets. Many
more common visitors keep the feeders busy, as well.  We have seen a
Goshawk almost daily, sometimes hunting the north side feeders and
sometimes farther south in the valley, past the entrance to Three Springs
State Forest.

Good birding to all,

Saw 4 Eastern Bluebirds yesterday on Marble Road in the Town of Vernon. They 
were there in the fall so I don't think they ever left. 


Also, between the park in Fulton and the river in Oswego we saw 7 eagles. 3 
adults and 4 immatures. In Oswego we saw Redheads, Longtail, Common and 
Red-breasted mergansers, Mallards and Common Goldeneyes. 


Went to Syracuse last Sunday and there were 4 Eagles and a couple Muted swans. 
In Liverpool were the Lights along the Lake start we saw at least 30 Trumpeter 
swans.

4 male Bluebirds in trees and at the feeder now. JOY! They are surviving the 
deep chill. Eating sunflower chips it seems. 


Also yesterday:  Carolina Wren 

I tried spreading millet in hopes of attracting 22 cardinals....but they 
haven't found it yet :) 

Maybe the word will spread today...I do have a few.

A Gray Catbird continues next to the feeder canal south of Andrew's Road in the 
Twn. of Dewitt. The bird was first seen during the Syracuse Christmas Bird 
Count on December 20th. It is in the vicinity of the Northern White Cedar which 
is the only evergreen on the bank of the canal. It was again seen by myself and 
Michele Neligan as we did the Waterfowl Count. 

 Highlights of the Waterfowl Count along the feeder canal north of Andrew's 
Road were two male American Wigeon and a male and female Gadwall. Good birding.

Hello all,
 

 There have been probably at least ten eagles on the Mohawk River above and 
below Lake Delta in Rome for the past week or so. While photographing these 
eagles other birders told me that there is another Snowy Owl this year in Rome 
at Griffis. I've seen it a few times now. 

 

 I also was in Syracuse and went to the trail by Destiny Mall. I saw about four 
eagles, lots of ducks, and what appeared to be quite a few swans. The pictures 
I took are from quite a ways away, so I've not ID-ed the type of swan.

Gull numbers were way up this afternoon in Baldwinsville, I sorted through as 
best I could but could not find any white wings. There's a lot of ice on the 
river. The gulls were congregated between Mercer Park and the dam, and swirling

We have had small flocks (6-14 or so) of Evening Grosbeaks visit the
feeders each day, still.  It's hard to know when to expect them, but late
morning is proving pretty consistent.  Some birders have seen them, others
have not.  Two Common Redpolls have come each day as well, and between 1
and 4 Pine Siskins.  A Northern Goshawk makes a tour of the "diner " daily,
probably more than once; we saw a pair hunting  together farther south on
Carpenter Road last week.  Still seeing a White-throated Sparrow, Fox
Sparrow, and Chipping Sparrow.. on suet, it fits right in the suet cage..
along with Tree Sparrows.  Yesterday returning home from North Syracuse, we
both saw a Snowy Owl (likely adult, very pale) soaring slowly over a field
near the 81/481 interchange.  Beautiful!  Also saw several Rough-legged
hawks in the swampy areas, perched in trees.

Good birding to all,

 As I posted back in November, I again have either a first winter male rose 
breasted grosbeak or an adult non-breeding black headed grosbeak coming to my 
feeder. I did not see it for a few weeks after my first posting, but have seen 
it again in December sporadically and a few times this month. The grosbeak does 
have a bi-colored bill but beyond that it is very difficult to tell which of 
the two it may be. I'll continue to post sightings, it comes to the feeder more 
frequently when there is snow on the ground.

On East Road/County Route 65 north of New Woodstock there are at least three 
Lapland Longspurs along with some Snow Buntings and lots of Horned Larks at the 
manure spread.

 Hi Hambirders

Hi Oneida Birds

If you are looking for a nice bird-oriented movie to rent, I suggest “A
Birder's Guide to Everything.”

 It is about a teen-age boy who is trying to deal with the death of his
ornithologist mother a year and a half earlier. Naturally, she had raised
him to be a birder. The boy's father is on the eve of re-marrying.

 The boy sees and badly photographs what he thinks may be a Labrador Duck
(which is extinct). He convinces his two birding buddies and a grizzled
local birder (played by Ben Kingsley) that this may be the real thing and
the kids head off on a quest to get a confirmatory photo.

 This is a well acted movie with serious subject matter but which is also
lighthearted. It would satisfy birder and non-birder alike, but the film is
full of birder-oriented images and emotions, consistent with the fact that
Ken Kaufmann was one of the film's consultants. We watched it with another
couple – non birders – who got it from Netflix and who enjoyed it with us.

 I would appreciate any comments if you do see it. And I hope you enjoy it.

 Best wishes,

Rich Cohen

Sorry for the delay,
The Syracuse Christmas Bird Count was held on December 20, a decent mid 
December day with no rain or snow. 32 participants found an above average total 
of 84 species and 30,868 individuals. New highs were established for Snow 
Goose, Mute Swan, White-winged Scoter, Long-tailed Duck, Double-crested 
Cormorant, Rock Pigeon, Merlin, Pileated Woodpecker and Common Raven. Good 
birds for the count were the second Red-throated Loon since 1970 (the first was 
in 2011) and the ‘bird of the count’ a Marsh Wren, last recorded in 1994. 
Half-hardies reported besides the Marsh Wren were Eastern Towhee (2003) and 
Gray Catbird (2007). The only winter finch found was a single Pine Siskin. 

Thanks again this year to Bernie Carr for hosting the compilation and to the 
several people that helped out in some under counted areas. 

And many thanks to all the participants old and new.

The Oneida Christmas Bird Count was held on January 1, a windy day with no 
precipitation. The southeast corner of Oneida Lake was mostly open and a 
variety of waterfowl contributed to the better-than-average 60 species seen on 
count day. Water species seen less than five times on previous counts included 
Tundra Swan, Greater Scaup, White-winged Scoter (first time), Bufflehead, 
Double-crested Cormorant and Bonapartes Gull. The passerine highlight was a 
Winter Wren, only the second occurrence on the count. New highs were 
established for Red-bellied Woodpecker and Common Raven, two species that 
continue to expand in our area.

 The juvenile Great Blue made it's appearance yesterday across from my house,
 and was hunting in the swale until the heavy rain started.

Hi,
Rose and I had a brief encounter with an interesting raptor on the 
Skaneateles CBC midday Sunday.  I initially had it as a Peregrine 
based on form and dark upper face patch, but several other details 
don't line up well with that ID.  Gyr was not even considered at the 
time, what with it being 50 degrees, south wind and all.  I don't 
think we have enough documentation to claim it, but a darker gray 
juvenile Gyr is the best fit.  Also, an adult Gos with dark, 
non-barred primaries remains in contention (don't know if that's possible).

So, this is more of a heads-up rather than a recommendation to chase 
off to Owasco.  But for those interested, it was at the corner of 
North Rd. and Reynolds Rd., Town of Owasco, Cayuga County, moving north.

Good birding,

I went out to recheck some recent sightings in the Skaneateles 
area.  On Skaneateles Creek, I was able to find a reported female 
WOOD DUCK along Griffin St.  Also along the creek, a BROWN CREEPER 
and overhead a CACKLING GOOSE in one of the flocks of Canadas.

At Carpenters Brook fish hatchery, the RUBY-CROWNED KINGLET was 
re-found at the same location, and there was a HERMIT THRUSH on the 
back trail.

Happy new year, and good birding!

I found three WHITE-CROWNED SPARROWS in juvenile plumage this morning at the 
intersection of Kingdom and Lynch Roads in the Town of Van Buren.

For my traditional beginning-of-the-year birding morning, I started at Muller 
Hill Road, where the highlights were a number of flyover and calling Evening 
grosbeaks and a mink that bounded across the road. 


Generally the wind kept bird activity down at other spots, but I did stop at 
Vincent Corners Road. I hadn't read Bernie's post about the Christmas count 
results but it was still not a surprise to find two immature Iceland gulls 
there (one was a first-year, the other I saw only for a moment in flight). 
There was also a good candidate for a Thayer's gull. 


Vincent Corners Road used to be a reliable location for horned larks, snow 
buntings, and the occasional Lapland longspur, but they've changed their 
farming practices and I haven't had much luck there with the ground birds in 
recent years. The gull congregations have risen in counterpoint and in winter 
I've often found white-winged gulls there. 

 

 Good birding, and happy new year.

On the New Woodstock Count held on Tuesday- there were several highlights that 
deserve mention. 

On Vincent Corners Road, south of Route 80 - the large compost pile attracted 2 
iceland gulls besides herring, ring-billed, and great black backed gulls. 
Brown-headed cowbirds were also foraging with a large flock of starlings. 

DeRuyter Reservoir - 1 adult bald eagle. A smattering of waterfowl - com. 
mergansers and goldeneye, lesser scaup, and mallards 

New Woodstock - Manure spread near at the intersection of East Road and Thurber 
( named after Judy?) - 5 lapland longspurs - one of which was a brightly 
plumaged adult while the other 4 had "subdued" winter plumage. 

As always, Linda's feeders delivered evening grosbeaks and the previously noted 
N. goshawk. 

Good numbers of rough-legged hawks - seen on Route 80 and Paradise Hill.
Late reports from the Syracuse Chrismas count a the gray catbird was seen on 
the walking trail in Onondaga Lake Park near the open water impoundment. Other 
birds that may or may not still be around - winter wren in the park storage and 
dump area and a Carolina wren near the empty large white house that is right on 
the trail. On the west side of Onondaga Lake, at the the parking lot for the 
west side trail -northern shrike. In Onondaga Lake, red-necked grebe, 
red-throated loon, common loon, white-winged scoter, and long-tailed duck.

We still are hosting small flocks of Evening Grosbeaks daily, mostly before
noon, ranging in numbers from 2 to 14.  Some visitors from Illinois got
them as a lifetime bird; they were visiting family in Jamesville for the
holidays.  It took over an hour wait, but seven came, two males and five
females/immatures.  We also shared them with our wonderful
coordinators/participants in the New Woodstock/Southern Highlands count.
Yesterday we had very good close looks at two FOS Common Redpolls with a
larger flock (15 or so) of Goldfinches; that is usually when the Siskins
are seen, as well.  A Northern Goshawk has been hunting the feeders almost
daily, and was also seen by Matt Young and Bernie Carr on Tuesday.  On our
drive-around Tuesday, we saw two Turkey Vultures soaring low over a field
on Crumb Hill Road just past the junction with Carpenter Road; we were
surprised to see them so late, but they were so low and close that there
could be no mistake. Ravens are still enjoying the scraps of a deer carcass
at the end of the yard; it's amazing how the smaller birds, Chickadees,
Nuthatches,Woodpeckers,  and Jays, also manage to pick every bit of fat and
meat off.  Nothing is wasted.  Today a Kestrel was hovering and pounced on
something just south of New Woodstock on 13 as I was returning home from
Cazenovia.  It stayed on the ground and seemed to be tearing bits of food
off.

We welcome visitors and birders, and wish everyone a very Happy New Year,
and good birding to all!

A ruffed grouse flew over Pratts Falls Rd a short distance east of Gardner Rd, 
and landed in a small tree alongside the road. I backed up my car to get a 
better look, and the bird flew back across the road and disappeared into the 
larch trees along the edge of Pratts Falls Park. Got a nice look at his crest 
and beautiful red tail feathers.

We found a chipping sparrow in the yard yesterday, and got some 
photos today.  Very cooperative today, less so yesterday.  It was 
showing a dark spot on the breast yesterday, making me think twice.

With cold weather coming I think the huge bird numbers at the Savannah mucks 
and Knox-Marsellus will be coming to an end soon. Prediction for Sunday-Monday 
overnight is mid-20's but I'm more worried about the Mon-Tues overnight when it 
will hit mid-20s but with no recovery the next day, a pattern repeating for the 
following two overnights where it will hit mid-teens. Wind might help keep K-M 
open but this could be it for the mucks, at least temporarily.

Good numbers of Canada Geese at the Geneva waterfront, but Seneca Lake was 
rough on moderate SW winds. While passing through Waterloo, the evening gull 
roost-flight (from the Seneca Falls landfill to Cayuga Lake) was on and I 
decided to follow it. Lots of other birds moving about and I finally caught up 
with a Snow Goose raft far out in the lake and viewable for many miles along 
Lower Lake Rd. Over to Knox-Marsellus Marsh at dusk found it too late to go 
through the many birds there. These shallow water spots will freeze and the fun 
will be over. 



I've put up a few photos of the Snow Goose group, one taken from the hillside 
at Cayuga Lake SP and the other from the very south end of Lower Lake Rd. Also 
a few bill-detail close-ups. There are also some shots illustrating the 
gull-flock scene at the Savannah mucklands, taken earlier in the week.

Took a quick trip around the Syracuse Airport at around 10:30 AM. I saw 2 Snowy 
Owls, both quite heavily barred. One was on a snow bank at the end of the last 
air freight terminal (Delta's) and the other atop the filthy snow pile opposite 
the overflow parking lot. Only other birds seen were Rock Pigeons and Eur. 
Starlings.

Lots of action at the Savannah mucklands and Knox-Marsellus Marsh. As on 
Tuesday, a good number of gulls continue to pull worms from the mud - about 
50/50 Ring-bill/Herring. Lots of geese at both spots including White-fronted at 
K-M and a white goose I couldn't decide on at the mucks.

We have enjoyed seeing groups of Evening Grosbeaks daily, in number from 2
to 15 this week.  Still most frequent in the morning up until about 1:00.
Also still a few Pine Siskins (4 at most recently); several Ravens visit
daily, and today a Goshawk perched atop the dying aspen tree behind the
parking area and glowered for about 1/2 hour.  It flew off to the South,
directly over the house, giving a great look at this beautiful bird.
Despite the loss of most of our snow cover, many of the other "usual" birds
continue to visit.  I hope that the Grosbeaks will still be present next
week for the CBC on Tuesday!

Good birding to all,

Hi Hambirders
Hi OneidaBirds

Below is a Youtube link to a video I digiscoped today with my smartphone
(hence the poor quality). As you will see it shows a bald eagle. I then
scan quite a bit to the left and there is another one. What I find
interesting is the way the second eagle walks on the ice and then takes
off.

This was taken on the section of Lake Moraine north of the causeway.  It is
1:17 long. I hope you enjoy it.

Best wishes for a happy healthy new year of birding adventures!!
