Subject: Varied Thrush, Richmond Co. NY (NYC) 1/16 & 1/17 (& Eve. Grosbeak, Manhattan, + extra-limitals)
Date: Thu Jan 17 2019 16:31 pm
From: gabrielwillow AT yahoo.com
 
As negative reports can be useful, I™ll say I was just in Clove Lakes Park for the past ~ 2 hours and found neither the Thrush nor the Chat.
The Chat was, however, seen by another observer in the previously reported location around 3:30 this afternoon.
I™m sure they™re both still skulking there somewhere...
Hopefully I™ll get luckier next time,

Wed. & Thursday. 16 - 17 January, 2019
It may be noted to this list that the Varied Thrush on Staten Island was [re]-found on Wednesday, January 16th, 2019 (again, for the 2nd time in less than 2 months) by Catherine Barron, a long-reliable and regular Staten Island (Richmond County, NYC) birder. Her 1/16 eBird report was filed, and also her 1/16-Wed. report given to the longstanding local alert, SINaturaList. See:https://ebird.org/view/checkli...
Incidentally, this Varied Thrush may well be spending parts of its time in that area in private yards, near where seen in Clove Lakes Park (which is a NYC public park). Also of some note had been a Yellow-breasted Chat seen at Clove Lakes Park but in a different section, to at least Wed., Jan. 16th, & that bird could certainly still be present as well; the location of the Chat was near the larger Clove Lake, a bit east of where the Varied Thrush has been reported.
It seems that the Varied Thrush moved away from the public park and perhaps up towards a church and also private homes by mid-day or so, on Thursday. This follows a sort of situation that also was seen with the early December appearances of this bird, when it was not seen for long periods by multiple seekers, and not seen in a very long interval of the dates from early December to now mid-January...
I might emphasize, it is very possible that this Varied Thrush is 'making a living' in private properties, as much as in publicly-viewable places, & if so, obviously any who come seeking views should respect the privacy of local home-owners. The area where the Varied Thrush has appeared is not at all far from streets with a lot of single-family homes, private yards, and - a fair amount of possible / potential feeding, roosting, hiding places for a bird of this kind. Thanks to I. Grant for the update to this list, and to any others who may update on this rarity!
Additionally, there™s been a very late-lingering Esatern Phoebe in the same park, but in a yet-different location, near Martling™s Pond as reliably reported from 1/16 (& there was also a reliable sighting of E. Phoebe at a nearby location, Snug Harbor also on the n. end of Staten Island, from 1/14 as well), not necessarily the same individual in this winter of multiple E. Phoebes in the region (& even of all 3 of the 3 Phoebe species - in a modestly wider, just barely 2-state, region!)
- - -- The long-lingering male Evening Grosbeak is continuing in Manhattan, NYC at Riverside Park - this bird was found on the Manhattan portion of the Lower Hudson Christmas Bird Count (that™s the count that covers ALL of Manhattan, including Central, and Riverside, and Inwood Hill, & multiple other parks on the day) back on December 16, 2018, this now a month-plus stay for a species that™s not at all too regular in NYC; the Eve. Grosbeak has ranged about, but is somewhat regularly encountered by birders using the leaf-covered trail in the Forever Wild - white signs - of the Ladies Grove Sanctuary, which has entrances in that park near about W. 116-117th Streets & also a bit to the north near about W. 119-120th Streets, with some forays by the grosbeak to as far as across Riverside Drive, & n. of Riverside Church in smaller Sakura Park, and more often, in Riverside Park™s wooded area, a bit north of the noted area which is the best area to work, seeking this lingerer. It™s also occasionally seen from Riverside Drive and simply looking into the park over a long, low stone wall. Thanks to all who orginally found this bird back on Dec. 16th, & also to K. Fung for a number of more recent sightings and reports.
- - -Extra-limitally but just barely to NY™s east, an adult ˜Kamchatka™ Mew Gull has been contiuning in Stamford, Fairfield Co. in Connecticut as noted by some on this list, & regularly updated on the CT Birds list-serve as well as in eBird & etc. - thanks to Patrick Dugan in particular for many sightings & updates on that bird in CT.
VERY extra-limitally, congrat™s are due to Linda Grant for discovering & reporting the first-ever White-throated Thrush in Arizona, a recent find there, & now having been seen by many seekers; it is believed the only United States occurence of that mainly Mexican-Central American species of ˜Turdus™ [genus] thrush outside of southern Texas, where it™s considered rare. The Arizona & N.M. birds-list are giving updates along with eBird, etc., and this rarity is being sought at Madera Canyon in the southern part of that state, with visitors arriving to look from many many places.
good birding - & safe travel to all during upcoming weather,

Subject: Golden-crowned Sparrow
Date: Wed Jan 16 2019 17:33 pm
From: jwjaycox AT optonline.net
 
I returned at first light this morning and met two women who were already there. Eventually, the golden-crowned sparrow showed and we all got to see it well (my thanks to them for allowing me to look through their scope). I believe it appeared around 7:45 AM or so. It disappeared at some point, perhaps in the shrub adjacent to the deck. I left the site around 8:45 after not seeing it for a bit, so not sure if it showed up again.

Bird is here now 2:30pm. Exactly where it was described as being, about 15ft to the left of the trail right across from the hives.

A Wood Thrush has been seen at the Quogue Wildlife Refuge (Suffolk County) since this past Saturday. The bird has been found by following the main trail from the parking area, heading north with the wildlife pens to the right and the ice pond to the left. The Wood Thrush has been observed within a hundred yards of the wildlife pens, foraging in leaves on the left (west) side of the trail roughly across from the first set of bee hives.

Subject: Eastern Long Island Rarities Today
Date: Wed Jan 16 2019 10:53 am
From: drogers0031 AT gmail.com
 
It™s worth noting that a close look at the recent photographs taken of Common Murre at Shinnecock suggest more than one individual was involved. Aside from the photo evidence, it™s conceivable that several birds have been venturing inshore given the abundance and quality of available food along the coast. This is also evidenced by the historic numbers of Razorbills currently being reported. Hopefully the report of a deceased Common Murre at Triton Lane isn™t indicative of a more troubling event and it would be worthwhile to keep an eye out along the beaches and associated wrack lines.
Regarding the live birds, subtle plumage markings on the head as well as the configuration, definition and length of the dark post ocular stripe on the Shinnecock Common Murres show a range of variation (at least 2 or 3 birds photographed). This exemplifies the importance of thoroughly documenting birds (written descriptions, photos, etc.) within eBird checklists rather than simply writing continuing bird, which in this case didn™t always apply. Yet another example of where photography has yielded an interesting discovery.

The Thick-billed Murre at Shinnecock Inlet was in sight from about 8:00 to 9:30 this morning and then again briefly just after 1:30. At least one
Razorbill was in the inlet in the morning, providing closer looks than the Murre. To my knowledge, the Common Murre was not seen. 2 or 3
Red-necked Grebes were reported at the mouth of the inlet and further out. A bit odd was a Ruddy Duck with Common Eiders (where the inlet meets the bay).


The American White Pelican was present for a while in Mecox Bay™s Hayground Cove, before flying out around 11:20. I t was best viewed when someone came out to feed the swans. It was the only big white bird that stayed put. Without
such intervention, it can easily be hidden by the many swans, especially if sleeping with head and bill tucked in.


With the prospects of better Alcid pictures not looking good as the afternoon progressed (none in sight and dimming sun), I decided to do the wild goose chase thing. None were visible as I arrived at Doctor™s Path (Riverhead). I went over
to Northville Turnpike (Rt. 105), where I found a small flock (by standards of that area) in the field to the east. The
Barnacle Goose was a quick find. Within a few minutes, flock after flock and overall huge numbers of geese began coming in from a southwest direction, and landing in the large field on the west side of 105. A few minutes after that, small groups from
the east side of 105 (and eventually all of them) joined the larger group. I was hoping to photograph the Barnacle flying by. I photographed one random flock to test the lighting. Never got the Barnacle, but looking at the pictures when I got home revealed
a Greater White-fronted Goose (pure dump luck there). Possibly, this is the one I saw in the west field and reported to the What™s App a few minutes later.

Relevant to the COMMON MURRE not being seen at Shinnecock Inlet, Joe Girgente today found and photographed a deceased COMMON MURRE to the west of the inlet at Triton Beach and reported it on the Queens and Long Island alerts:

The Thick-billed Murre at Shinnecock Inlet was in sight from about 8:00 to 9:30 this morning and then again briefly just after 1:30. At least one Razorbill was in the inlet in the morning, providing closer looks than the Murre. To my knowledge, the Common Murre was not seen. 2 or 3 Red-necked Grebes were reported at the mouth of the inlet and further out. A bit odd was a Ruddy Duck with Common Eiders (where the inlet meets the bay).

The American White Pelican was present for a while in Mecox Bay™s Hayground Cove, before flying out around 11:20. I t was best viewed when someone came out to feed the swans. It was the only big white bird that stayed put. Without such intervention, it can easily be hidden by the many swans, especially if sleeping with head and bill tucked in.

With the prospects of better Alcid pictures not looking good as the afternoon progressed (none in sight and dimming sun), I decided to do the wild goose chase thing. None were visible as I arrived at Doctor™s Path (Riverhead). I went over to Northville Turnpike (Rt. 105), where I found a small flock (by standards of that area) in the field to the east. The Barnacle Goose was a quick find. Within a few minutes, flock after flock and overall huge numbers of geese began coming in from a southwest direction, and landing in the large field on the west side of 105. A few minutes after that, small groups from the east side of 105 (and eventually all of them) joined the larger group. I was hoping to photograph the Barnacle flying by. I photographed one random flock to test the lighting. Never got the Barnacle, but looking at the pictures when I got home revealed a Greater White-fronted Goose (pure dump luck there). Possibly, this is the one I saw in the west field and reported to the What™s App a few minutes later.

I was there on Sunday 1/13 from approximately 10:00 AM to 2:45 PM (I left the location twice for short periods of time to take a break) and did not see the bird, even though it had been there earlier in the morning. I™m also interested in any recent sightings, as I may try one more time this week.

Subject: Cool predator-prey action
Date: Tue Jan 15 2019 12:02 pm
From: ablock22168 AT yahoo.com
 
Today when I was leaving my doctors appointment at DOCS on Central Ave. in Yonkers I witnessed some cool predator-prey action. I was sitting in my car and all of a sudden I saw this blur of a large bird go behind the car parked to the left of me about seven spaces over and an immature Red-tailed Hawk and European Starling came tumbling across the parking lot from behind one of the cars. The hawk missed the starling but then both flew less than a foot above the ground and under the two cars at which point they popped out right to the side of my car and landed in front of my car. I couldn't see them so slowly got out of my car to try to get a view. At that point the redtail flew up in front of me about five feet away with the starling in its talons and up and over the fence and into the woods and out of view. All this happened in less than a couple of minutes. I've seen such behavior before but never so close and never with a starling. Quite exciting!

Subject: Barrow's Goldeneye (female), Sands Point Preserve
Date: Sun Jan 13 2019 16:13 pm
From: glennq AT verizon.net
 
This morning, I birded a cold Sands Point Preserve (Nassau) from about 8:20AM to 11AM. 
A small group of 4 Common Goldeneye very close to shore had a single female Barrow™s Goldeneye with them. Goldeneye in this location are normally further out in the sound and I usually don™t make any attempt to discern females to species. These birds were only about 100 feet offshore and it made identification a much easier task, even with only 10X binoculars.
Landbirds were really scarce but on my second circuit of the mostly frozen pond, I found an Eastern Phoebe and a Gray Catbird at the northern end of the pond, and a Fox Sparrow by the wood garden just west of Hempstead House.
eBird report here, with my notes on the Goldeneye:

Subject: 1/12 South Fork, LI: RAZO & BLKI numbers, Gambel's WCSP, etc
Date: Sat Jan 12 2019 23:22 pm
From: mcb3mb AT verizon.net
 
While hearing tantalizing reports of a big white bird flying around the base of the South Fork all morning, I spent some time hitting coastal spots in and around Montauk (Suffolk Co).
The morning was highlighted by large numbers of Black-legged Kittiwakes. There was a steady trickle from the ocean into the Block Island Sound for the first post-dawn hour, totaling a remarkable 91 birds -- with most of the birds feeding with the larid/gannet frenzies over the Razorbill flocks just NE of the point after 8am. For the remainder of the morning, I encountered kittiwakes at every ocean vantage point, with the BLKI's almost exclusively feeding over large foraging groups of Razorbill.
Additional highlights included the continuing Razorbill show (with estimates including 4400 - the Point, 600 - Camp Hero, 325 - Ditch Plains, and 200 off the village), an adult Iceland Gull at Lake Montauk Inlet, and an immature Red-shouldered Hawk at Ditch Plains.
Thanks to the diligence and persistence of several observers, I connected with the White Pelican when Gail Benson and Tom Burke saw it make one of its several returns to Hayground Cove around 2:40.
Also in the vicinity, four White-crowned Sparrows were seen at Halsey Ln x Mohawk Rd in Watermill. Albeit only studied and photographed briefly before disappearing, the adult sparrow in this group appears to be a possible Gambel's White-crowned -- showing pale lores, a yellow-orange bill, and paler gray rear auriculars. This may be of interest to some "identifiable forms" connoisseurs or any rampant annual listers who are chasing the pelican and have yet to see their White-crowned Sparrows this year.

Hi all,
Went to see the Mew "Kamchatka" Gull again in Stamford, CT this am and it was still there at Gus Edson Park on Weed Ave. Also had 13 Monk Parakeets and two Fox Sparrows at the feeders at Cove Island Park. Then on the way home in Rye Brook we had a Greater White-fronted Goose in the frozen pond behind Rye Radiology off of Bowman Ave. along I-287.

Yes, so what happened is a hunter got in his boat, ostensibly just to break up the thin skin of ice that was forming in the cove and spooked the Pelican.

BEGIN TAPE
Greetings. This is the New York Rare Bird Alert for Friday, January 11th 2019 at 9pm. The highlights of today's tape are THICK-BILLED MURRE, COMMON MURRE, DOVEKIE, BARNACLE GOOSE, GREATER WHITE-FRONTED GOOSE, EURASIAN WIGEON, Eurasian form of GREEN-WINGED TEAL, BARROW'S GOLDENEYE, KING EIDER, HARLEQUIN DUCK, BLACK-HEADED GULL, GLAUCOUS GULL, BLACK-LEGGED KITTIWAKE, RED CROSSBILL and more.
As the nice RAZORBILL push continues along the south shore of Long Island Shinnecock Inlet continues to add other species of alcids to the mix. Last Sunday among the few hundred RAZORBILLS were also one or more DOVEKIE spotted within the RAZORBILL flocks. Last week's THICK-BILLED MURRE was still being seen in Shinnecock Inlet up to Monday and a COMMON MURRE, photographed in the inlet last Sunday was apparently different from one seen in the afternoon both yesterday and today near the west jetty. Additionally at Shinnecock a female HARLEQUIN DUCK has been feeding daily along the west jetty and a female KING EIDER was also there last Sunday these part of a large concentration of COMMON EIDERS and mainly BLACK and SURF SCOTERS plus numbers of RED-THROATED and COMMON LOONS and up to 3 RED-NECKED GREBES.
Today 3 or more BLACK-LEGGED KITTIWAKES were seen around offshore gull gatherings and a young GLAUCOUS GULL flew by. In addition among the birds along Dune Road west of Shinnecock Inlet have been AMERICAN BITTERNS, SNOWY OWL and a GLAUCOUS GULL near Triton Lane.
Among recent RAZORBILL flights were 120 off Breezy Point last Sunday while about 2,500 were estimated off Montauk Point on Tuesday.
The sod fields north of Riverhead are now attracting large numbers of Canada Geese among them a BARNACLE GOOSE was spotted in the fog last Tuesday and was present again today on fields on either side of Route 105 just south of Sound Avenue and north of the Northville Turnpike. Two GREATER WHITE-FRONTED GEESE are also in this flock and another GREATER WHITE-FRONTED was present today in a Canada flock at the Buffalo Farm off Reeves Avenue just west of Roanoke Avenue.
A drake BARROW'S GOLDENEYE was seen again off Pelham Bay Park in the Bronx Wednesday with a female also off City Island last Sunday and another drake BARROW'S remains off Crab Meadow Beach in Northport. Drake EURASIAN WIGEON continue at the Marine Park Salt Marsh Nature Center in Brooklyn and at Avon Lake in Amityville and a Eurasian form of GREEN-WINGED TEAL was spotted Wednesday on Miller's Pond in Smithtown. Scattered CACKLING GEESE continue in the area.
A BLACK-LEGGED KITTIWAKE was spotted off Robert Moses State Park last Saturday and an adult BLACK-HEADED GULL was still around the Jones Beach West End Coast Guard Station last Sunday and on Thursday an adult was spotted in Sheepshead Bay Brooklyn. Was this perhaps the same individual? An ICELAND GULL was spotted in the Brooklyn Narrows Tuesday and a GLAUCOUS GULL visited Joline Beach in the Tottenville section of Staten Island Wednesday while single LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULLS included one on Central Park's Reservoir last Saturday and others the length of Long Island.
Three RED-NECKED GREBES were noted off Brooklyn's Plumb Beach Tuesday.
A late OSPREY was seen on Tuesday on the Croton Reservoir system in northern Westchester County.
Four or more RED CROSSBILLS were in the pines at Jones Beach West End last Sunday and a male EVENING GROSBEAK was still being seen in Riverside Park up to Tuesday.
For lingering warblers Union Square Park in Manhattan still held OVENBIRD and COMMON YELLOWTHROAT today with the CAPE MAY WARBLER still reported to Wednesday.
Extralimitally the GOLDEN-CROWNED SPARROW in Downsville Ulster County was still present today. If visiting please be very mindful of the rights and sensitivities of the local residents. Also check the Connecticut list serves for the wonderful Kamchatka race of MEW GULL visiting Holly Pond in Stamford.
To phone in reports on Long Island call Tony Lauro at (631) 734-4126 or call Tom Burke at (914) 967-4922.
This service is sponsored by the Linnaean Society of New York and the National Audubon Society. Thank you for calling.

Subject: Shinnecock Inlet - Common Murre continues
Date: Fri Jan 11 2019 13:49 pm
From: cjgangemi AT icloud.com
 
Refound Common Murre at 1:45. It was in the mouth of the jetty. I will try to post a picture to eBird later.
The female Harlequin was on the western side of the west jetty. As I was departing, at 2pm, a single Razorbill flew into the jetty and landed in the bay to join another, not far from the red buoy.
Strong NW winds made for challenging conditions.
On another note, the Black Vultures were not present at the Roanoke Ave Elementary school the two times I checked this morning. Plenty of Turkey Vultures about.

Subject: Extra-limital (barely) Kamchatka Gull
Date: Fri Jan 11 2019 13:25 pm
From: rfermat AT yahoo.com
 
In Stamford CT this morning here: 41.056710, -73.504696. This is about 13 minutes from the NY state line. It's an adult.

Park at Gus Edson Park on Weed Ave. The bird was very cooperative. More information is on the CT bird listserve. Apparently it's best at low tide, which was around 12:00noon today. However, it was very easily seen from 10:00 or so until 12:30.

Apparently it's been around since Wednesday. I'm surprised no one posted about it here. Perhaps I missed it.
