SNOWY OWL

SNOWY OWL

The One That Got Away

Posted on January 8, 2013 at 8:39am 1 Comment

This is a column I wrote early in December elaborating on a few of the sightings I posted here, maybe you'll get a chuckle at my inadequacies and it may help you remember the field marks better than I can.  (Learn from the mistakes of others and all that...)

We've been keeping a yard list for just about 20 years now, the beauty of staying in one place for so long is bragging rights to a pretty good list, not great, I have a friend with about 50 more than me, but…

Big Cape This Week

Posted on April 19, 2012 at 9:46pm 1 Comment

On Wednesday afternoon, pumped up from Sundays Hawk/Sea Duck watch I made it a point to take binoculars on our dog walk.  We saw the male Peregrine Falcon and one duck that even with only 8x binoculars I was able to see all the field marks, including the orange bill of a Surf Scoter.  

After talking to Ron Steeves about the numbers of ducks that passed New Horton, mostly in the morning, I thought I'd give it a couple hours in the morning and see what comes up our branch of the river.…

Cliff Swallow Nest Site

Posted on April 21, 2011 at 9:04am 2 Comments

There had been some talk of building an alternative nest site for swallows in the Royal Oaks development.  I was on board in an effort to stop a repeat of last year where upwards of 50 Cliff Swallow nests were destroyed.  

I haven't been in contact with anyone recently and with the latest in the news I suspect building the wall on Royal Oaks property is not likely.

My question... does anyone know of another site near the area that would be suitable and who the contact people…

Good news for those of us who have had enough winter.

Hi Dwayne, glad you like our site. Lots of great information hopefully.  Best,Lisa

Hey,
Thanks for the suggestion. I already have a complimentary copy, as one of my pics is in it; however, I would definitely like a second copy. (Red beetle on top of page in second pic is my image)

Yes, Dwayne, most of my stuff resides on my Flickr account.  The only thing that I ask, and kindly, is if anyone has a Flickr account and chooses to comment there, please call me DM on Flickr.  I sign everything there as PJ Gergely, purposely to keep my first name out of the public arena of Flickr.  It is a long story as to why, too.

Thanks,

Many thanks, Dwayne.

Thanks for the invite Dwayne.  I am still very much an amateur birder and rely heavily on our more knowledgeable "experts" in the Dalhousie area. I think they get a kick out of my enthusiasm whenever I see something that I feel is out of the ordinary or new.  My first Dunlin on September 9 2013 had me dancing around and throwing out wild speculation on the ID until Mike Lushington saw the photo and set me straight.. His words, great photo, bad ID. :-)

Yes, we met @ the Moncton Farmer's Market this winter...  We are walking distance (Reynolds Road) and I've wanted to visit your 'bird house' but haven't had 2cents to put together and KNOW I'll want to buy something once I step inside!

     Earlier this evening we saw a male and female mallard close to our feeders and hope they will make a summer home nearby, fyi.

Hey Dwayne. Hawk watching season starts any day now. I've seen nice Red-tail flights at New Horton Ridge as early as March 4. I'm not sure how often I'll get down there this spring and I haven't spoken with Ron Steeves recently to see if he has time or the desire to go down. We had a lot of very slow days last spring but both of us were too stubborn to not go down once we started. I think I'll try to be much more selective about which days I go down this year but time will tell.

Re: Butterfly links. Both sites I mentioned before are searched in the same way. You may want to have a look at the re-vamped site NOVASCOTIABUTTERFLIES.CA.  Using this and the MBA list for N.B. would work in my opionion. See what others think first.

Maybe, as a door prize, I'll see something special (like a pelican!) at Green's Point today

Okay, thanks. I decided just to use the Blog Posts once a week instead of adding yet another tab or group that people have to join. We'll try that to see how it works out, okay?

Hi Dwayne,

 

I was wondering if the Birding New Brunswick Website would like to add a new section to the site called Bird Trivia. I received a Bird Trivia Book from my daughter for Christmas last year and it has many interesting facts that members might be interested in. I could add a comment a week if you think that would be a good idea. Eg. Did you know that a Petrel was named after the fact that it seems to walk on water much like St. Peter did?

Since taking the picture on april the 21st, I have not seen the female bluebird, since that day. The male(which was bigger) was around the back yard all day the 22nd, flying from the birdhouse to the apple tree and seem to be waiting for his partner, but he also dissapeared the next day. About 3 days ago we saw 2 (tree) swallows looking inside the birdhouse, and seem interrested in taking it over. Hopefully the bluebirds will be back, and might be interested in another birdhouse further in the field, which was built intensionaly for them a few years ago. Have not seen the swallows in a few days either, maybe the temperature is too cold for them?
