For those of us who aren't such fans of the morning, has anyone seen the bird later in the day?

Yes. Friday. The bird was on the ground first, at 2:50pm, in the field east of the favored buckthorn then made its way to the bush. It stayed in the back until it flew off to the east, back on the ground at 4:20.

Just discovered 5 Evening Grosbeaks on one of my platform feeders, soon joined by 2 more on the ground - until a Red-bellied Woodpecker "asked" the two late arrivals to leave.

(Eastern Bluebirds around the yard most days and almost always seen on our walks.)

Clear skies, Alan

Sage Thrasher yes right before sunset

Brian Smith
 

Saw the sage thrasher at Ooms at about 4:30, same location posted. Many thanks to the spotters and posters.

Was hidden for about 10 minutes when I got there. Then it posed graciously.

Hope it finds it's way home to a nice sage bush out west once everyone has had a good look.

Cheers!

Sage Thrasher - yes

The Sage Thrasher continues at Ooms. I was here a little over an hour before I saw it. Many birders present.

Did it again, dammit

I will NOT be at Vischer Ferry tomorrow - we have a mega-rare bird at Ooms Conservation Area in Chatham. SAGE THRASHER has only two state reports since the '70s and I'd rather chase that than look at plain old ducks. I hope to be there 7am-ish - join me if you wish!

Red-necked Grebes at Carters Lake, Greenwich

Scott Varney
 

I hiked the trails at Carter's Lske in Greenwich on Saturday and found 3 Black Ducks hanging out separately, but near a pair of Red-necked Grebes in the open water viewed from the first observation platform.  Both grebes were showing adult non-breeding plumage with dark backs, reddish-brown sides of the neck, and white along the front of the neck.  Bills were entirely yellow.  Also picked out 2 Rusty Blackbirds near the inland swamp area near the 2nd observation platform. Dark-eyed Juncos made an appearance near the Boardwalk Pine trees. 

Happy Birding,

Birding at 5 Rivers today

Cynthia Edwardson
 

Chris and I walked around 5 Rivers this afternoon and enjoyed some great looks at a Northern Parula and a Tennessee warbler.  They were foraging low in some weeds by the start of the Birder's trail near the Heron Pond.  There were at least 7 Golden-crowned Kinglets foraging in this same area and at least 7 more spotted in the park.  A nice variety of birds were seen on this cool afternoon, including one singing Fox sparrow.
Attached are two photos Chris took of the Northern Parula.

Enjoy an extra hour of sleep!

Re: Surf Scoter Cossayuna Lake

Andy Mason
 

Scoters seem to be about.  Thought the group might be interested in this report by Becky Gretton from Otsego Lake near Cooperstown a couple uf days ago.
 
Andy Mason
 
A friend messaged me that a Peregrine Falcon and a Black Scoter were at the north end of Otsego Lake.  I drove there, saw the Peregrine quickly and scoped the Scoter, which was diving underwater in avoidance of a pair of Bald Eagles that were circling and diving on it while a Common Loon floated nearby.  The Scoter came up, an Eagle grabbed it and floated in the water undoubtedly footing it, and after a minute or two of that it began swimming with the dead Scoter.  It swam for about 13 minutes, then stopped, flew into a tree with the other Bald and perched with wings hanging for a short while.  The Scoter carcass floated and was visited by a gull.  The wet Bald went back to the carcass, grabbed it and dragged it to a spit of land where it plucked the feathers, ate a good amount and flew off with it.

This afternoon Robert and I saw an immature Surf Scoter on Cossayuna Lake in Washington County. The SUSC was associating with a small group of Bufflehead and was viewed (with spotting scope) from Little Troy Road, which is located on the west side of the lake about 2/3 of the way up if traveling CR 48 from south to north.

We didn’t realize just how infrequently this species has been reported in eBird in this county until we got home where we have reliable internet service.
