Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Conesus Lake Area - Sunday, March 26, 2017
Good morning,

Yesterday's lakeside birding proved fruitful with some nice species
scattered all along the shoreline of Conesus Lake (east side.) The report
from the Lake is extremely conservative as I don't have a spotting scope.
Seeing a loon is always a wonderful thrill. There were other rafts out
toward the mid-line of the Lake too that I couldn't count/identify. Also
noted activity now that every thing is thawed at the East Swamp Midway
Pond. Otherwise, other areas (Sliker Hill swamp and a run along Swamp
Road) were pretty quiet, although we did see a nice red-shouldered hawk at
the viewing area on West Lake Road just before the intersection of Sliker
Hill and West Lake Rd (Rte 256.)
