The Fayette Gyrfalcon was indeed seen on January 1st by Drew Weber, Cullen
Hanks, and Ash Ferlito, as well as by other observers later in the morning.
I tried for it without success several times on Jan. 2nd, and it has not
been reported to my knowledge since the 1st. Nevertheless, it is still
definitely a different individual from the Ithaca bird by virtue of
plumage. As far as I know, the immature at the Reynolds Game Farm has also
not been seen again since Sunday Jan. 3rd, despite many checking the area.
I did find a female HOARY REDPOLL in the redpoll flock around the NW corner
of the pheasant pens at the game farm today around noon, as well as a
COMMON GRACKLE in the starling flock, both species we missed for the Ithaca
CBC. The two BLACK VULTURES were still present with Turkey Vultures near
the compost piles as well.
