This morning while birding on the end of the creek walk by the mal. I found a 
GRAY-CHEEKED THRUSH next to a SWAINSONS THRUSH which helped me comfirm between 
the 2 species. The birds were feeding on the grass near the benches half way 
down the walk with robins. The foot traffic became a problem and kept flushing 
the birds back into the bushes.

*Habitat Selection in Golden-cheeked Warblers*



*Wednesday, October 8, 7 p.m.*

East Syracuse Free Library

4990 James St., East Syracuse, N.Y.



An assistant professor at SUNY-ESF, Shannon Farrell has been studying
endangered Golden-cheeked Warblers in Texas. At this meeting, she will
discuss how social behaviors might influence habitat selection in these
birds and how research like hers can boost the accuracy of predicting where
species can be found, allowing better habitat management for and conservation
of imperiled birds.

The bird was present Monday. The pond there has a lot of goldfish and the heron 
had caught one but couldn't swallow and eventually abandoned it. It can still 
fly, but I imagine is getting hungry. 



People in the area seem to know about the bird and some may read this list. If 
you see the bird acting strangely (allowing close approach, drooping neck or 
posture, being unsteady on feet, or hard to fly) please call: 



Dave Wheeler:  373-5350 or
Jean Soprano:  447-0806 or 695-6418

Thanks.
Dave W.

I checked on the bird tonight. I'm not sure what the object is that's looped 
around its bill but may be a fishing lure. The bird is alert and can fly. I 
have an e-mail in to Jean Soprano to see what might be done. Photos of the bird 
at my Flickr page.

Hi,
 There is a GBH at Meadow Brook pond area in Syracuse with something wrapped 
around its bill preventing it from successfully eating. Does anyone know who 
would help?

I also had 2 groups each of American Goldfinch (16 birds total) and Cedar 
Waxwing (13 birds total), but I wasn’t sure if they were actually migrating, 
or just moving locally.

Sunday, 9/28 - Did an a.m. 30 min. walk at Liverpool Good Dog Park 9-ish. 
Pretty quiet...a few Catbirds and Song Sparrow. 


Midday I went to Lake Neahtawanta in Fulton and walked the LOVELY, lovely (a

Nashville - 1
Palm Warbler - 1
chickadees, WB nuthatches, titmice, geese, woodpeckers: Downy, Hairy,

In my last post, I forgot to mention that I took a few minutes yesterday 
afternoon and scoped Oneida Lake from Mill St in Constantia. Besides one Great 
Black-backed Gull, the only other notable sighting was group of 20 SCAUP that I 
saw. They were pretty distant - scope views - and the lighting at that time of 
the day was not ideal, but from the large amount of white in the extended 
wings, they all appeared to be Greater Scaup.

Sunday morning started out pretty foggy at my house, depressing bird activity 
for a good part of the morning. From 7 to 8 AM the highlight for me was a 
singing Carolina Wren. 


I went inside for a while, but came back out at 9:15. Bird activity around the 
feeders picked up with a bit, but it remained pretty foggy. In the backyard 
near my twig pile, I found a small flock of birds that consisted of 3 
White-throated Sparrows, a Song Sparrow, a Ruby-crowned Kinglet, one 
LINCOLN’S SPARROW, and a House Wren. A Cooper’s Hawk moved silently through 
the trees, and I think he was watching a flock of Rock Doves that were circling 
around over my house as they made their approach to my feeders. But the Doves 
left almost immediately and I didn’t spot the Coop’s again. 


Back inside for brunch at 10:45, and wouldn’t you know it, while I was inside 
eating, the fog magically dissipated and left behind clear blue skies. A 
handful of Blue Jays showed up at the feeders, so I went back outside at 11:40 
AM, since the Blue Jay migration was what I was waiting for. 


I spent the next hour or so tracking the migrants that passed over the yard. 
Here is what I got: 


Blue Jay – 147 – way down from previous days
Sharp-shinned Hawk – 1
White-breasted Nuthatch – 2 birds mixed in with the Blue Jays that flew with 
them from east to west over the yard in migratory fashion. 

American Goldfinch – 7 – much the same as the Nuthatches.

At one o’clock, I went back inside for a mid-afternoon Yankee break. It was 
Derek Jeter’s final game after all. Couldn’t miss that. 


Back outside at 5:00 to finish mowing the lawn, and at 6:00, I spotted the 
final group of Blue Jays pass over the yard – 67 of them.

Hello all,

Yesterday I led a group of 16 birders on an Onondaga Audubon Society field
trips to Green Lakes State Park. The weather was wonderful and 41 species of
birds were seen (+ 1 unidentified Empid Flycatcher). Highlights were 6
species of woodpeckers (Downy, Hairy, Red-bellied, Flicker, Pileated and YB-
Sapsucker), Blue-headed Vireo, Magnolia Warbler, and a Bald Eagle that did
an amazing flyby at the end of the hike. 

Good Birding!

I checked on the bird tonight. I'm not sure what the object is that's looped 
around its bill but may be a fishing lure. The bird is alert and can fly. I 
have an e-mail in to Jean Soprano to see what might be done. Photos of the bird

I visited a shrubby/grassy area off Number 2 East Road, just east of Limestone 
Creek, today, figuring the place would be good for sparrows. It turned out to 
be a bad news/good news situation. The bad news was I only saw three sparrows, 
and two of those were song sparrows. The good news was the third was a nice 
Lincoln's sparrow. 


Also present were bluebirds, yellow-rumped warblers, a house wren, and the 
usual cast of suspects. 


This location is in the Town of Pompey, near the Onondaga/Madison county line.

Good birding.

 Went kayaking this morning on Sterling Creek, Sterling NY before going to 
work, on the water between 8:30am and 11:00am. The highlight of the trip was 
the first bird seen, a juvenile black-crowned night-heron, which flew up to a 
good perch with clear view. Photos of trip at: Sterling Nature Center

Hi,
 There is a GBH at Meadow Brook pond area in Syracuse with something wrapped 
around its bill preventing it from successfully eating. Does anyone know who 
would help?

One hour in the yard this morning, from 7 AM to 8 AM yielded these migrants:


Blue Jay – 1272
American Robin – 9
Eastern Bluebird – 8
Canada Goose – 12
Red-winged Blackbird – 2

I also had a single calling PINE SISKIN fly over, headed west to east. I 
invited him to stop in at my feeders for a snack, but he politely declined, and 
continued on eastward.

In the retention basins/future construction areas on the west side of Inner
Harbor, there was a lot of activity this morning. Sparrows were everywhere
and I picked up White-crowned, White-throated, Swamp, Lincoln's, and many
Song and Savannah Sparrows. The area was also loaded with Palm Warblers and
Common Yellowthroats but I managed to also find single Blackpoll Warbler
and Nashville Warbler.

The biggest surprise of the morning was in the southeast corner of this
area, closest to the covered ampitheater. Lurking under the trees was a
semi-cooperative Gray-cheeked Thrush that let me get great looks but
slipped out of view every time I tried to digiscope it.

Good birding,

By the outflow North of Glenn bvld. I first saw Cedar Waxwings and EABL 
flycatching at 4:40PM. They would return after passers by went on.  2 Chipping 
sparrows seen also south of the Good Dog park.  I've  previously seen 
Bluebirds here 3 months ago.  And I did see some Blue-jays move high overhead.

Subject: more Blue Jays

Well the Blue Jays were at it again this morning.

I was putting the garbage out just after the sun rose this morning and I 
noticed that there was another significant movement of Blue Jays overhead. Just 
like the other day, there were Blue Jays at all levels in the sky, but unlike 
the other day, this was more like a constant stream of birds. On Sunday, I 
would wait for minutes between groups of Jays as they flew from east to west, 
but today the wait was never more than a few seconds, and the birds covered a 
greater area of the sky. I watched for 30 minutes, between 7:15 and 7:45 and 
counted 1,823 Blue Jays. Several times, there were so many birds in the sky 
that I know that I missed quite a few – it was just impossible to see and 
count them all. I wish I could have stayed outside longer, but I had to get to 
sleep.

The Two Mute Swans continue there resting near the marina and a Carolina Wren 
also continues. There were Blue Jays moving down the biking trail woodland 
edge, Catbirds, and little warbler chips I didn't have time to investigate. All 
in all my feeling was there was a lot of bird activity today. Not always so at 
the park.

This Sunday, Janet Allen, an excellent speaker, is giving a program of possible 
interest to you. This is a meeting of the Habitat Gardening Club of CNY and is 
open to the public. All welcome. 


See below:
Creating a Bird-Friendly Landscape

Our first program of the 2014-2015 program year will be presented by Janet 
Allen on Sunday, Sept. 28 at 2:00 at Liverpool Public Library. 

(NOTE: "Make sure your landscape is well-grounded" has been rescheduled for our 
April meeting.) 

Do you enjoy watching birds in your yard? Learn some interesting facts about 
some of CNY's favorite backyard birds, such as hummingbirds and chickadees, and 
learn how to enhance your yard so it provides habitat to even more birds. Like 
other creatures, birds need food, water, cover, and a place to raise young. You 
can meet their needs by planting native plants and providing some other 
essential ingredients. Finally, learn how you can help conserve birds beyond 
your own yard. Create a bird-friendly yard and enjoy the daily companionship of 
birds right at home!

I saw 2 Shorebirds from the Overlook shelter, a Yellowlegs and Spotted 
Sandpiper.  The Yellowlegs flew north calling loudly.  Then, I was surprised 
to find 5 Bluebirds dropping to feed on the lawn nearby.  They were of various 
ages and gender, must of been a family. Some Chipping Sparrows 2 WB Nuthatches 
a Phoebe, Northern Flicker fed on the ground just south of the 
shelter. https://www.flickr.com/photos/51058083 AT N03/15149846729/  https://www.flickr.com/photos/51058083 AT N03/15150080077/in/photostream/

Hello all,
 

 Back on August 30, I photographed a small falcon at Lake Delta near Rome which 
appeared to hovering near to a limb of a dead tree near the shore line. After 
getting home and looking at the photos, I realized that it was pulling bark 
from a limb while flying. 

 

 I've included a few pictures of the bird in a Flickr album located at the 
following address.

 I also saw the Snowy Owl at Clay on the September 19th.

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.

A great find by Tony Shrimpton. Thanks also to Wayne and Drew for the updates. 
Very helpful. 



Regarding the Uncas Rd report Meena refers to, the pictures I have seen show an 
American Pipit.

House number 11162 Whitney Rd. Seen by a group of birders around 4 PM behind 
and to the left of house feeding on insects in the backyard area. Later, with 
approaching dusk Wheatear seen feeding alongside the road, and perched on wires 
alongside road, and at top of dead tree across the road, and in sumac to left 
of the Roberts' house. Many great photos taken by Drew Weber, Dave Wheeler, 
Mark Magistro and probably others.

I spent about 3.5 hours out in the yard this morning searching for any migrants 
that might pass ahead of the rain that was forecast to fall in the morning. One 
of the first birds I saw (around 7 AM, which was 10 minutes after sunrise, 
local time) was a Sharp-shinned Hawk that had attracted the attention of a 
number of American Crows. The Sharpie was doing small loops over my house about 
50 feet up, and there were 3 Crows that were kind of following it around. With 
each pass, it seemed that more crows would gather around the hawk until there 
were 8 of them following the Sharpie around. A few of the crows would dive at 
the hawk, and the hawk would return the favor, but neither really seemed too 
intent on doing any damage, and after a few minutes, the Sharpie passed on and 
the crows dispersed. 


Just as I have noticed in the past few Septembers, there was a significant 
movement of Blue Jays this morning over my house. They passed over in multiple 
waves and at several different elevations, with most moving east to west, which 
is typical of Fall migration movement here at this end of Oneida Lake. A few, 
however, were moving west to east, which I thought was odd, but I am pretty 
sure that most of those eventually turned themselves around and moved in the 
right direction. Anyway, in a little over 3 hours, I counted 1,309 Blue Jays 
pass by. The only other species moving in any numbers this morning were Monarch 
butterflies – I counted 26 of them within the same time span. 


Otherwise, the only other migrants I came across today were 1 White-throated 
Sparrow, 1 Black-and-White Warbler, another Sharp-shinned Hawk, a Red-eyed 
Vireo, a Rose-breasted Grosbeak, and 1 Great Blue Heron. I did have a flock of 
15 Cedar Waxwings fly over too, but I think they were local birds. 


Later in the afternoon, around 4:30, there was an Osprey and 2 Bald Eagles 
flying just ahead of the line of showers associated with the cold front that 
finally passed through the area.

I looked up ABA rare bird alert, and found Northern Wheatear from variety of 
regions in last few days. As early as late August from Nova Scotia and New 
Brunswick of eastern Canadian regions 


Then on September 9 from Ohio where the bird seemed to be continuing till 14 of 
September. Then in Ontario, Canada Sep 20 and 21. One reported from Uncas Road 
Old Forge on Sep 19 by Gary Lee. And today from Jefferson County. 


So it seems there are at least two or three Northern Wheatears in the Eastern 
North America. I am just interested in knowing if one of them was seen at more 
than one location. It might be worth comparing the photos! 




Cheers

I looked up ABA rare bird alert, and found Northern Wheatear from variety of 
regions in last few days. As early as late August from Nova Scotia and New 
Brunswick of eastern Canadian regions 


Then on September 9 from Ohio where the bird seemed to be continuing till 14 of 
September. Then in Ontario, Canada Sep 20 and 21. One reported from Uncas Road 
Old Forge on Sep 19 by Gary Lee. And today from Jefferson County.
