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 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 believe Whiney should be Whitney. Tony has a camp on Stony Point

Hi  :

At about noon time today, there was a Northern Harrier flying fairly  
low over the village of Tully south of the Agway store. It was  
harassed by a flock of pigeons (official name - rock doves).

Good Birding,

In the protected area down the first dirt road to the left after sign for 
Thompson Road Spur( the one with a steel cable with orange tape), I ran into 
two passes of migrants today around noon.

Lots of Canada Geese to scan through but none were unusual.

There were however four Juvie Red Tails riding the wind currents along the tree 
line and dive bombing each other for the better part of a half hour. Fun to 
watch!

Subject: Tully, N.Y. Northern Harrier, (male)
From: "gwren70 AT yahoo.com [oneidabirds]" <oneidabirds@yahoogroups.com>
Date: 18 Sep 2014 09:09:51 -0700
Another Northern Harrier, (male) was observed alighting on a hay windrow near 
Rt. 81 at 10:45 this morning. 

 A Ring-billed Gull came along and harassed the N. Harrier into flight. The 
raptor flew out over the corn field and steadily gained altitude until it 
soared southwest toward Green Lake. At least one of the tail feathers was 
missing. 

 The late summer to late fall migration of Northern Harriers through the Tully 
area occurs from August 10th. to November 27th. Good birding. Gene Huggins.

About Taylor
For references, Click Here.
Taylor grew up near Seattle in an art-aware environment and took to music at an 
early age. After high school he entered the University of Washington College of 
Architecture, but by the time he was 21 he was playing several musical 
instruments and soon moved to California to start a band. 


After spending several years in the San Francisco Bay Area, he moved to Los 
Angeles. Then after three bands and seven years of heat and smog, he set out 
looking for a cooler and greener place to live. 


In December 1984, in the middle of the rainy season, he moved to Mendocino, 
California. In his first week there, he "discovered" mushrooms, bought a 
camera, and started taking photos. 


After a year of customizing his equipment and focusing his direction, he 
presented his first slide show for the Los Angeles Mycological Society annual 
fair. Since then, he has taken thousands of photos and done hundreds of shows 
in the U.S. and around the world. 


In 1996, Taylor bought a computer and learned quickly how to work with graphics 
programs in order to "spread the word" about the beauty of this facet of 
nature. Praise for his work and vision to promote the beauty of mushrooms has 
gained him acclaim with mycologists, mushroom enthusiasts, photography critics, 
and nature lovers around the world. 


His work has appeared in the National Geographic Magazine, the New York Times, 
the Washington Post, and many other publications. Like many other amateur and 
professional mycologists, Taylor is a pioneer in the discovery and appreciation 
of mushrooms and other fungi. 




 



 		 
Subject: Tully, N.Y. Northern Harrier, ( Juvenile)
From: "gwren70 AT yahoo.com [oneidabirds]" <oneidabirds@yahoogroups.com>

A juvenile Northern Harrier was seen at 2:59 pm this afternoon flying low over 
the newly mowed alfalfa field next to my home. The Harrier began to briefly 
chase single Crows around, by initially dive bombing them and then another Crow 
would chase the Harrier. After a few minutes, the Harrier alighted on the field 
to rest and preen its feathers while the seven Crows kept their distance. This 
went on for twenty-three minutes until the Harrier flew low to the north over 
the adjoining corn field. Good birding. Gene Huggins.

It's getting late for Nighthawks, but 16 were seen tonight over the marsh
in Three Rivers. Several flew low and slow over the field for quite awhile
and I almost had to duck on two occasions the views were that good. Judy
Wright and Judith Thurber also enjoyed the show tonight. Thanks again for
supplying the raspberries Judith.

Took a trip out to Monetzuma this morning. Although the birding was generally 
slow, there were, as always, some redeeming highlights. 


First, on 20 out toward Marcellus I had a Cooper's hawk chasing and harassing a 
crow across the road. I'm not sure if the crow had a morsel the hawk was 
interested in, or if the hawk had decided to try predating above its weight 
class, but it appeared the result was inconclusive. 

 

 The main pool had a lot of eclipse-plumaged ducks as well as many families of 
gallinules and pied-billed grebes. 

 

 East Road was extremely low on shorebirds and the heat shimmer, together with 
the long distance this year to the mud, prevented any satisfactory birding. 
Towpath is a muddy mess. 

 

 The Esker Brook trails were decent in terms of activity, though far from 
spectacular - the only warblers I had were a Wilson's and a calling 
yellowthroat. However, near the pond, I found two Carolina wrens, and one was 
the first juvenile of the species I've seen. Wonderful looks at a very 
accommodating bird. Its breast was pretty much clear of any ochre tinge but it 
did have two or three odd, irregular blackish streaks. The streaks were 
reminiscent of the blurry bold streaks I once saw on the breast of a juvenile 
American redstart that was molting into adult male plumage. 

 

 Good birding.

I saw 3 Phalaropes, at some distance, west of the west Pier at Sodus Point
this morning between 9 & 10. They were feeding in the greenish surf near
some other shorebirds. During my walk to get nearer to them one
disappeared. I was left with two to look over, one was a Red and the other
a Red-necked Phalarope, what a nice surprise! Here is a link to an image I
captured of the two together.

Other shore birds I saw were Sanderling, Ruddy Turnstone, Baird's
Sandpiper. Black-bellied Plover, and Semiplamated Plover. There may have
been others that I didn't see, I was rushing through them pretty quickly.

Went to the Destiny creek walk tonight. Many Cardinals. Many Gulls. (Nothing 
like having a Sabine's in Ithaca to make one look more closely at gulls.) 2 
Catbirds (at least). Didn't see the Ruddy Turnstones, but didn't carry my 
scope. 


On the way back from the lake edge at 7:50 (street lights on, quite dark) a 
bird was hopping on the paved trail in front of me....scurrying, dipping its 
tail, hunting insects I guess. It had me baffled as I don't see all that many 
passerine birds feeding when it is so dark. Dark cap, dark ear patch, very 
lightly speckled breast...and this evening feeding and alone. It nearly walked 
into me and I could see white marks at outer tail side tips. It eventually flew 
off calling which gave me tremendous relief....A Robin for sure. From Crossley 
Guide (which makes me feel like I'm out birding whenI look at it), imm. female 
on left side of pg. 368 comes closest to the Robin I saw. Memorable experience.

Ten people met me this morning for the Sylvan-Verona Beaches field trip. Rain 
was predicted for noon but started at 9 AM. Birds were scarce with only one 
flock of chickadees encountered in the Verona woods.` Associating with them 
were Chipping Sparrows and the three species of warblers we found: one each 
Nashville, Palm and Yellow-rumped Warbler. There were only about a dozen 
Bonapartes Gulls at Sylvan Beach and no shorebirds.

Around 3pm there were 2 ruddy turnstones at the end of creek walk. They were on 
the orange buoy to the NE behind a little island of metal trash.

Ive been having lots of birds on the trail/trails behind Mr Mikes seafood place 
the past two days. 15 species of warblers in the last two days, and many 
unedentified ones that are high in the trees or poorly lit areas, also lots of 
other passerines as well. I walk in the trail and go straight until you hit a 
tree and the trail goes to the left and right, I concentrate on the left and 
right making a few passes back and forth. Just wanted to pass this along if 
anyone want to check it out.

Later in the day...from 6:15 to 7:45 specifically, I hung out at 100-acre pond 
and at 7:15 had 10 Nighthawks coming from the east and seeming to disappear 
toward the NW. Only one was low/close enough through binocs to make out the 
crescents in wing. So glad I went. Heard and saw Marsh Wren as well as Common 
Yellowthroat, Wood Thrush, and other more common species. There were goose 
hunters with decoys out and two young men who said they were Crow hunting.

Due to the many other birding events this weekend, more birders are needed
to count birds and species along Onondaga Lake during Saturday's BioBlitz.
 This dive into Onondaga Lake diversity is sponsored by SUNY-ESF and the
Onondaga Lake Conservatoin Corps.



From plants to mammals, from fish to birds, the Onondaga Lake BioBlitz is a
unique opportunity to explore the lake's biodiversity and discover new
species. Working side by side, community volunteers and SUNY-ESF faculty
and students will inventory and identify every species of plant and animal
that can be found in 24 hours. While participating in the research, the
citizen scientists will learn about the natural diversity of the Onondaga
Lake watershed and how to protect it.

will lead field surveys starting at Fri 4 pm at Long Branch Park; currently
plans for Saturday are to meet at marina near County Visitor's Center at
9am and Sat 12pm at Long Branch & Inner Harbor. Will also have birders
deployed to other areas that may be less optimal for public access; nothing
planned for staging area but Beth Folta will be using 2 of our scopes to
facilitate some public viewing from staging area.

 Wayne Fidler discovered a Monarch Roost last night at Derby Hill in the second 
field along the south treeline. He called me and Mark and I went out with the 
camera. When relocating the roost we also found 4 more and Wayne counted over 
150 monarchs. 

 He sent me a text this morning saying they are still there. The link below

Wednesday at Montezuma I could find none of the recent goodies such as Willet, 
Hudsonian Godwit, or Buff-breasted Sandpiper. Sodus continues to be good, but 
the same. New was one Pectoral Sandpiper. Fair Haven was more exciting with a 
Red Knot on the East breakwall, which flew and didn't seem to come back. All 
five of the expected peeps were on the west spit beach, including two Baird's 
and a White-rumped Sandpiper.

*BALD EAGLES OF ONONDAGA LAKE*
Wednesday, September 10, 7pm
Baldwinsville Public Library
33 E Genesee St, Baldwinsville, N.Y.

Greg Craybas has spent countless hours over the past three years
photographing the wintering eagles of Onondaga Lake. At this meeting, Greg
will talk about bald eagle behavior, fishing techniques, and habitat use
along critical areas of the lake that are in the direct path of the
proposed 'loop-the-lake' trail. With this presentation, Greg hopes to raise
public awareness about protecting the lake's natural habitat so that it
will continue to attract eagles to the city of Syracuse for years to come.

Tonight, in spite of decoys and Goose hunters my wife and I saw at least 6 
COMMON NIGHTHAWKS above the big pond at Three Rivers WMA north of 
Baldwinsville. We were scanning from Smokey Hollow Road at a new entrance to 
the area.
