Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Little Blue Heron
The Little Blue Heron that was found yesterday at Kings Bend Park in
Pittsford was relocated at the same pond a few minutes ago. The bird
appears to be in a healthy state as it foraged in the pond and even caught
a fish. There were fishermen around, and one walked towards it, and the
bird moved several times around the pond, but fortunately did not fly away.

Happy Birding,
Nick Kachala

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] GVC Nations Rd. walk this Saturday
I'll be leading the annual spring bird walk sponsored by the Genesee Valley Conservancy in the Nations Rd. area this Saturday morning. We'll be meeting at 7:30 am at the Jaycox Creek & culvert area, about a mile or so down hill from where Nations Rd. meets Rte. 39 (Avon Rd.). We will search that area for a little while, but then look mostly for grassland and other birds of special interest along Nations, Roots Tavern & Huston Roads and Oxbow Lane . Species of special interest may include Willow Flycatcher, Rough-winged Swallow, Bluebird, Field, Savannah, Vesper and Grasshopper Sparrows, Meadowlark, Orchard Oriole, Bobolink and many more - whatever shows up. This is always a rather relaxed trip, mostly along the roads, but we might walk short distances off road. Everyone is welcome; extra expertise and spotting scopes would be very welcome.
I'll have a cell phone with me: 585-519-9211

The Stilt was seen at 2:12 pm - 2:30 pm at Kumpf Marsh. Initially it was way at the north end but then it flew south (with some vocalization) and landed just opposite where the trail from the Kanyoo parking lot comes out to the gravel road.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Common Nighthawks - Casey Park, Ontario NY
This evening there were quite a few Common Nighthawks at Casey Park. My estimate was 20, which may be conservative. Birds first appeared at 8:15. They came from roosting sights in the area to feed around the oar bed. They started out flying quite a bit above the tree tops. At about 8:50 they were flying at ground level, often feet from me. What a sight! It's an annual occurrence, you just have to blessed to experience a night like tonight.


My viewing location was the parking lot at the east end of the oar bed, a short distance from the park entrance off Knickerbocker Rd. The park closes at 9:00.

This afternoon, my streak of good luck continued when I found a PIPING
PLOVER in a flooded field on the north side of Lower Lake Road, at the end
of Burgess Road in the Town of Somerset, Niagara County. There were a lot of
other shorebirds there, mainly Semipalmated Sandpipers, Dunlin, and
Semipalmated Plovers. Here is my checklist, with photos of the Piper:

This follows a breeding-plumaged HUDSONIAN GODWIT on Saturday in the Town of
Wilson (seen only the one day) and a YELLOW-BREASTED CHAT heard at
Wilson-Tuscarora SP yesterday (not heard today).



Good birding!

         For any out chasing today. Sue and I did a quick look in the Owl Woods area between 11 and 12 today and hit a nice movement,with all the empids except Acadian and a perched Olive-sided Flycatcher. The OS Flycatcher was not calling and moved to the south, so not sure if still around. We also had 14 species of warbler and a list of 52 in that short walk.    The OSFL was about 1/3 of the way along the trail and boardwalks behind the spruces paralleling Manitou Beach Road before the trails turns left toward the hawkblind area.Bob Spahn, <rspahn...>

There was an American White Pelican at the Mosaic Ponds in Port Maitland (Feeder Canal Rd and Rymer Rd). The bird can be viewed from Rymer Rd from the gate in the fence. There were also quite a few shorebirds present, Dunlin being the most numerous.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Hudsonian Godwit, other shorebirds - Town of Wilson
This afternoon, I found a breeding plumaged HUDSONIAN GODWIT on
Youngstown-Wilson Road, about a quarter-mile west of Fitch Road in the Town
of Wilson. This is the same field that I posted about a couple of weeks ago.
Other shorebirds here were two SHORT-BILLED DOWITCHERS, 1 WHITE-RUMPED
SANPIPER, 1 SEMI. SANDPIPER, 3 SEMI. PLOVER, 30 DUNLIN, 15 LEAST SANDPIPERS,
2 SPOTTYS, and KILLDEER. The godwit was far back in the field and difficult
to see, despite its large size, due to grass and dirt clumps. The birds may
shift to other puddles when flushed by farm workers or raptors.



Good birding!

Sorry for the late notice, figured they would have been posted already. I only saw them because of a text from Mike Brown while I was working. Stopped work, ran down to pier & Kershaw Park & then back to work. Mike had seen 2 Whimbrel on the breakwall rocks at the pier a little after noon. By the time I arrived there were 4. Also 15 or so Dunlin and 2 Ruddy Turnstones at the beach area in Kershaw. 9 Common terns on the breakwall as well.

One of my all-time favorite families of birds, it was nice to have both
cuckoos in the yard this morning. A Black-billed called several times
around 7:30 (my 3rd Black-billed in 3 days) and then an hour later my first
Yellow-billed of the year started calling. We've had Yellow-billeds around
the yard for the past 2 summers, but Black-billed just shows up
occasionally.

This morning a quick stop at the Canandaigua City Pier around 8 am produced
2 RUDDY TURNSTONES, up from the single one that has been reported since
Wednesday. There were no other shorebirds present, but who knows what will
blow in and out at this location throughout the day and throughout the next
couple of weeks. Always worth checking throughout the day this time of
year. I also briefly checked the swimming beach, but there was just a few
SPOTTED SANDPIPERS flitting around. I had 7 of them there yesterday.

A handful of BLACKPOLL WARBLERS could also be heard singing along the lake
shore among the willows.

Official Counter: Bob Baez

Observers: Brian Herne, Bridget Watts, Chris Smith, Daena Ford,
Dale Drexel, Hugh Macmillan, Judy Kelly, Mike Ciresi,
Mike Gullo, Mike Tetlow, Shelly Rackovski

Visitors:
A bunch of folks stopped by. The many observers today did their usual
cooperative great work with a scattered flight.


Weather:
Moderate to strong S, W and WSW winds.Cloud cover started out at 95% and
worked down to 40% with helpful cumulus thru the day.Low temp of 72, high
85. At about 1430 cumulonimbus was E and backed birds up.

Raptor Observations:
Much slower than yesterday but still good numbers of birds. A Mississippi
Kite was the first bird of the day, probable adult female. Mike T was on
it. Turkey Vultures, like the Terminator, will not stop. Bald Eagles and
Red-taileds are still having good runs. The Broad-wingeds of yesterday and
today were overwhelmingly immatures.

Non-raptor Observations:
Folks keep disappearing from the platform to find passerines. There must be
good stuff out there. Willow Flycatcher seen and heard.

Predictions:
Moderate W and NW winds. High mid-fifties. Maybe the front has pushed birds
to the lake. Stay tuned.

Getting this out a bit late, but a quick check of the Canandaigua shore
between 1:30 and 2:00 found 8 Dunlin on the rocks at the City Pier (plus a
Common Tern), and on the Kershaw Park beach - 1 breeding plumage Ruddy
Turnstone, 1 Pectoral Sandpiper, and 5 Spotted Sandpipers.

Thunderstorms were rolling in as we left the area. Maybe they will force
some other stuff down.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Penfield Eagle Aerial Show
Last week 3 immature bald eagles dove, swooped and rolled (including
doubles) as they made multiple passes at each other in a stunning display of
aerial proficiency. All this occurred over the space of 5-7 minutes and was
visible from our back yard (about a mile from Irondequoit Bay) until they
flew out of sight to the south. A fourth immature had dropped away to the
north before the show began.



On Monday we saw (presumably) the same four over Irondequoit Bay from A.
Lincoln Park, Smith Road entrance. While they made a few passes, it was
nothing like the previous week's show. We had seen them over the bay the
last few times we've been there.

3 Gnatcatchers
1 Great Crested Flycatcher
1 Song Sparrow


Grackles, Morning Doves and Starlings and house sparrows


Not bad for sitting in one spot.


Also, stopped by the West Spit looking for the Red-headed woodpecker but I did not see it however another birder came by and he said he had two at 7 am so I was very pleaswed to hear that.


1 Palm Warbler
1 Black-throated Blue
2 Common Yellowthroats
6 Yellows
8 Gnatcatchers
2 Song sparrows
1 Pee Wee
5 Robins


Blue Jays - again over 100 overhead - when a wind gust came up they were having a hard time getting anywhere but that wasn't too often

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] a nice surprise at West Spit Area - kathleen



A brief late stop about 6:30 pm on Manitou Beach Road on my way to the West Spit 5/15/17:



1 Red-headed woodpecker - this is the first one I have seen in years in this area. The bird was finding insects in five trees on Manitou Beach Raod right across from house # 45. I watched for about 20 minutes to see if their was another bird or any nesting activity going on but their was not. However, the bird got spooked as someone stopped in their car to talk to me and opened their door. Hopefully, they will nest there.



The only other thing of note was a hugh Blue Jay migration going on - over 300 birds overhead during those 20 minutes. 3 very active Flickers showing off, a Mockingbird, lots of barn and tree swallows.



A stop at the Church parking lot (at Edgemere and Long Pond) only birded from the parking lot for about 15 minutes: 7 pm





2 RC kinglets

1 Warbling vireo

1 Yellow-rumped warbler

1 Gnatcatcher

1 Lincoln's Sparrow . This was a treat for me as I have very little luck seeing these sweet , delicate birds.

1 Oriole

1 Song sparrow

2 Catbirds



The usual good numbers of Red Wing Blackbirds and Grackles.



Fingers crossed for a fallout on Wed or Thursday as those are my only free mornings this week

Comments:    Andy Guthrie and Brian Morse nearby at times and birding same area from other points for most of same time. Andy alerted me to ICGU I had missed when gulls on beach lifted briefly at one point.
    I did not make a strong effort to keep track of all the passerines and their movements, so numbers are minima and only indicative of birds present in the period. I tried to keep up with the jay flocks, but they were often high and nearly all silent, so while watching other birds some were certainly missed.

Comments:    Most of the time I was walking along with and conversing with Liz and Jim Barry.
    First time on this trail since it reopened. "Interesting" to see the new overlook platform and the new "boardwalk out into the marsh at that point. Hard to really assess what was done or the impact on birding due to the very high lake level. The trails either way on the loop past the overlook are blocked off due to water damage to the trails in places and to trees down. One can hope that the trees will be cleared soon and the damage actually generally would not really limit trail use.
    Most of the numbers are estimates; hard talk and keep really good numbers at the same time, but probably better than no attempt.

I saw a first of spring season solitary Lincoln's Sparrow in my yard at 4:20
pm today near my brush pile feeding and in the black spruce tree. It was
feeding with three Chipping Sparrows and a White-crowned Sparrow that came
in together at frequent intervals until my last sighting at 8:15 pm. Flickr
album added below for reference and ID confirmation in the share.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Cattaraugus County observations
Hi,

Last fall I replaced my teetering Kestrel box and pole with a new pole and
a poly box that is much lighter than wood. I bought the box from an outfit
that specializes in poly Barn Owl boxes for rodent control in the western
states. When the Kestrels returned, they spent a week checking out the
box, mating and acting very aggressively toward other birds checking out
the box - Bluebirds, Tree Swallows and another male Kestrel. But in the
end, they settled for a dead tree in a neighboring farmer's field. Even
though the poly is reasonably thick, I think it's probably still too bright
on the inside for birds that are hatched into darkness. However, I also
moved the pole from the previous location so that may have had something to
do with it. In any case, I'm building a new box from cedar for next year.

In the meantime, the Bluebirds showed renewed interest in the box but they
seemed confused by the size so I quickly added a BB box - under the
watchful eyes of the BBs - since the Tree Swallows had taken all the others
and the BB's moved right in. The Kestrel still uses the pole as a perch
but the BBs don't seem to mind.

Female Bobolinks arrived on Sunday a full two weeks after the first male.
Baltimore Oriole and Rose-breasted Grosbeak arrived in the last few days.

Also, fox kits have started to venture beyond the den. Images here:

There was a flock of 40 or more Bank Swallows along the Genesee River just
above the Rte. 63 bridge this evening. There has been a nesting colony
there in recent years.
A quick trip to the Indian Fort Preserve mid morning found, in addition to
the regulars, a Yellow-throated Vireo, a Ruby-crowned Kinglet and two
Redstarts.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] a nice surprise at West Spit Area - kathleen
A brief late stop about 6:30 pm on Manitou Beach Road on my way to the West Spit 5/15/17:


1 Red-headed woodpecker - this is the first one I have seen in years in this area. The bird was finding insects in five trees on Manitou Beach Raod right across from house # 45. I watched for about 20 minutes to see if their was another bird or any nesting activity going on but their was not. However, the bird got spooked as someone stopped in their car to talk to me and opened their door. Hopefully, they will nest there.


The only other thing of note was a hugh Blue Jay migration going on - over 300 birds overhead during those 20 minutes. 3 very active Flickers showing off, a Mockingbird, lots of barn and tree swallows.


A stop at the Church parking lot (at Edgemere and Long Pond) only birded from the parking lot for about 15 minutes: 7 pm




2 RC kinglets
1 Warbling vireo
1 Yellow-rumped warbler
1 Gnatcatcher
1 Lincoln's Sparrow . This was a treat for me as I have very little luck seeing these sweet , delicate birds.
1 Oriole
1 Song sparrow
2 Catbirds


The usual good numbers of Red Wing Blackbirds and Grackles.


Fingers crossed for a fallout on Wed or Thursday as those are my only free mornings this week

Finally. Despite still cool temperatures and winds with a northerly component, the inevitability of migration is finally upon us, at least in Cobbs Hill Park this morning, which was full of birds and bursting with sound. Fourteen warbler species below with Common Yellowthroat reported by others is a respectable haul, approaching spectacular by this year's standards.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Stilt habits...
Thought I already sent this...

Late yesterday afternoon (5-11) I saw the Stilt where Greg had refound it. According to Sibley it's a female (brown back). Beautiful close scope views w/calling as it took short flights (small predator around?). A nice yellow (crop duster?) plane banked fairly low almost overhead w/out spooking it. As I prepared to leave I realized it was no longer in view. Did it leave silently? Sitting down in tall grass? By the time I got back to the small parking lot on the S. side of 77 the Stilt was there at Kumf w/the sun just setting. So far what I've heard today it's been at both spots. Anyway between both spots there were - 5-6 A. Bittern8 Sora11 Virginia~300 Rusty BB2 Oriole3+ B Tern

Our neighborhood White-crowned Sparrows appear to have pulled out last
night. Since the last couple days of April and through yesterday evening
we had them singing around the house every morning and evening - one of my
favorite sounds of early May. But no White-throats this morning or evening.
I took a walk through the Indian Fort preserve (Rte. 63 S. of Geneseo)
early this evening. Of special interest was a Parula Warbler, also my
first Indian Fort Wood Thrushes (2 singing) of the year and a female Wood
Duck in trees near the pond.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Notes from TNC Big Day birding - 5/12/17 - Cliff Swallows
     Yesterday I spent a good part of the day first birding around Honeoye, Canadice, and Hemlock lakes on land where TNC played a part in preservation and later similar pieces of the Montezuma. Quite a few of the early migrants were in in good numbers, but later migrants were very few or missing. On the tops of the hills between the lakes birds were few in species and numbers - birds always present during times I have done breeding bird surveys there were not present yet.      For a couple of species some may be searching for locally: Cliff Swallows are back around the rest room in the park at the north end of Hemlock Lake and there were good numbers of Cerulean Warblers singing in the part of Van Dyne Spoor through the woods before getting to the marshes in the Montezuma area.Bob Spahn, <rspahn...>

Enjoyed watching roughly a dozen cliff swallows today just below the sled
hill at
Beaver Island (to the right after park entrance). They were holding their
wings up and
gathering mud from a few tire tracks about 30 feet off the roadway. It
provided
a great opportunity to see them in detail and observe their communal
activity.

I was fortunate to briefly observe and photograph a solitary Sandhill Crane
feeding and preening near the outermost west mud flats at Kumpf Marsh this
afternoon at 4:40 PM as viewed from the gate just off State Highway 77. I
watched it for a total of 8 minutes before it completely disappeared into
the cattails. The long distant images and videos below were the best my
camera could capture. There were no other birders at that site during my
brief visit. Submitted for the record of a spring sighting at that location.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Yellow Throated Warbler
The Yellow Throated Warbler was still present at Ellison Park this morning.
I found him at 11:30 in the top of a sycamore tree next to the creek,
almost straight down the hill from the Fort Schuyler building. Took me a
long time to locate him even though he was singing and I probably would not
have found him at all if he was silent.

Hi Everyone,

Robert Buckert found an adult Golden-winged Warbler in Rochester shortly
ago. He asked me to pass on the information:

"I found a male Golden winged Warbler along the Genesee River gorge all
the way on the north corner of Holy Sepulchre Cemetery on Lake Ave. On the
east side of Lake Avenue. Last seen around 1:05. In a clearing off the road
near a deer carcass and a pile of dirt, pine needles, and sticks."


Happy Birding,
Nick Kachala

Around 4:30 PM Friday, I found an adult male Cerulean Warbler at Amherst SP in Williamsville. The bird was

part of a feeding flock in the woods North of the wooden bridge located in the heart of the park, and on the East

side of the creek, near the large spruce plantation. The bird was not all that cooperative, but did afford several

satisfying looks. The Cerulean was one of ten warbler species viewed at the park on this day; other highlights

included my FOY Yellow-throated Vireo; and two Scarlet Tanagers.


Great birding,

5/11/17  Had 1 first spring male Orchard Oriole (yellowish/green with black throat) join the male and female at the sugarwater/orange feeder.  Finally saw an FOY Green Heron flying over...also flushed FOY Solitary Sandpiper from a ditch on our farm and heard a Common Yellowthroat or two.

5/12/17  Picked up a very dazed male Rose-breasted Grosbeak that struck our kitchen window (despite decals on window) and placed it on our brush pile.  It flew away a while later so am hoping it continues to thrive. Carol Hardenburg Portland, NY Chautauqua County

I was starting to think my Grosbeaks weren't going to make it but got a
surprise. Three this year! A female and two males. One male was young and
nervous at the feeder and then the female came in. Both seemed to be rather
young birds compared to the old man that arrived a few minutes later at
another feeder. Family group of some sort?

The cool, northerly winds continued all day making for a slow day.

Raptor Observations:
A few broad-wings made the day a little more interesting, as did 2 Osprey
and a lone Bald Eagle.

Non-raptor Observations:
The pond continues to provide some interesting birds - today a Green Heron
joined the continuing Killdeer, Solitary and Spotted Sandpipers. After the
watch, I checked along the drive and tallied 8 species of warblers:
Black-and-White, Nashville, Common Yellowthroat, my FOY Bay-breasted,
Yellow, Palm, Yellow-rumped, and Black-throated Green.

Predictions:
Cool, low, variable winds, mainly from the east. Could be a few birds.

Site Description:
This spring only "all volunteer" watch is conducted at Lakeside Cemetery in
Hamburg, NY. It is located on flat lake plain located along the shoreline
of the east end of Lake Erie, about 10 miles south of Buffalo, NY.
For additional information contact Jim Landau at <landaujr...>



Directions to site:
Lakeside Cemetery is located in Hamburg, NY which is about 10 miles
southwest of Buffalo, NY at the Hamburg Exit 57 of the NY State Thruway.
Bear right after the toll booth onto Camp Road (Route 75). Proceed through
the traffic light at Southwestern Blvd.(Route 20). The entrance to Lakeside
Cemetery is on the left, less than 1/4 mile from the light. The watch is
normally conducted half way between the entrance and the woods.
An alternate site for easterly wind flights is at the William Williams Ball
Park, located on Rogers Rd. Take Route 20 south from Camp Rd. Turn right at
the Rogers Rd. traffic light, just past the Walmart store. The entrance to
the ball park is on the left just before the railroad crossings.

Official Counter: Jim Landau

Observers: Joe Sullivan

Visitors:
Joe Sullivan spent the middle 3 hours of the watch and provided much help
with spotting things against a "flat light" sky.


Weather:
Easterly winds all day. A leaden overcast sky made for difficult viewing of
the higher elevation birds. At least it wasn't raining!

Raptor Observations:
A slow trickle of migrants, with 3 very high eagles, likely imm. bald, all
on the same flight line, that were not willing to be identified to species.
The resident Red-tails made repeated appearances, as did the local crew of
TVs.
A brief look at one of the resident Cooper's Hawks as well.

Non-raptor Observations:
Lots of Chimney Swifts. A Blue-Gray Gnatcatcher,a House Wren and a Green
Heron by the pond.

Predictions:
At 7:30pm the National Weather Service says, "A chance of showers, mainly
after 3pm. Cloudy, with a high near 56. Southeast wind 3 to 7 mph. Chance
of precipitation is 30%." This holds promise if birds aren't held up by the
rainy weather passing by over PA.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Cobbs Hill Park
Finally a half-way decent warbler day at Cobbs Hill Park. Ten species seen by me and Cape May seen by Mike Gullo nets 11 for the park for the day. Many birds not singing or singing very little; see my comments below about the particularly stealthy Hooded Warbler. But at least there were birds. And dry feet!

Meanwhile, conditions on the lake shore are still dire. Church Trail is virtually completely under water, a foot deep in spots. Ditto for Firehouse Woods, with a "No Trespassing" sign up and hoses pumping chlorinated sewage into it. Island Cottage Woods trails are about half submerged. Owl Woods is soggy but the loop is not flooded, so it is the only lake shore woods not compromised by the high water.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Prairie Warbler among 11 warbler sp. at Amherst SP Tuesday
Around 5 PM Tuesday, I found an adult male Prairie Warbler at Amherst SP in Williamsville. The bird was part of a flock of

warblers, which grew steadily larger until the time I left, around 6:30 PM, with several birders attempting to re-find the bird.

This flock was in the woods between the wooden bridge and the Tennis Club.


The Prairie was among 11 warbler species seen this day, those being: Black-and -White; Nashville; Am. Redstart;

Blackburnian; Yellow; Chestnut-sided; Black-thr. Blue; Palm; Yellow-rumped; Prairie; and Black-thr. Green. Other

highlights included Blue-h. Vireos; a family of Carolina Wrens; Blue-gray Gnatcatcher; and Wood Thrush.


Great birding,

Hey everyone,

Yesterday Greg Lawrence and I braved the chilly weather to have an
excellent afternoon of birding.

The WHITE-EYED VIREO was at the corner of Cook and Redman roads in Hamlin.
It was in a mixed flock hanging out along the marshy/shrubby power line cut
going N from the pulloff at the corner. It gave some pretty excellent
looks! Also present there were a Winter Wren, a Black-throated Blue
Warbler, a Red-breasted Nuthtach, and ~8-12 Ruby-crowned Kinglets.

Anyways, we started the day at Irondequoit Bay, which had a lot of
gull/tern activity at the outlet (N end). It was highlighted by ~200
Caspian Terns and a 1st summer Lesser Black-backed gull along with 33 Great
Black-backs and around 300 Herrings. Charlotte pier was even more
productive for gulls, with over 700 Herrings, 2 more Lesser Black-backs
(one each 1st and 2nd cycle), and a stunning 1st year KUMLIEN'S GULL
associating with the rest of the gulls on the pier. We then headed to
Badgerow park, which had a nice mixed flock with a Yellow-throated and 3
Blue-headed Vireos and a decent assortment of warblers (including 3 BTBlues
and my FOY Redstart).

The Hamlin fields weren't nearly as poppin as they were yesterday. Martin
road had one of each Yellowlegs, but other than the Vireo mentioned above
there wasn't much else. Orleans county had a bit more, with a few
yellowlegs and Least Sandpipers, some Black Ducks and Green-winged Teal,
and two Harriers on Peter Smith rd in Carlton. Borrow Pit C on the parkway
had Greg's long-awaited Orleans county Ruddy ducks. We also found my first
NY Pheasant along the parkway in Monroe county.

The Braddock area was fairly interesting with decent duck diversity (2
Common and 70ish Red-breasted off of West spit, 2 Greater Scaups at the N
marina, and a flock of 1 continuing Canvasback and a few Buffleheads,
Ruddies, and Lesser Scaups by the Hawkwatch). The marsh birding was also en
pointe, with an American Bittern calling near West Spit and lots of action
off of the Hawkwatch including 3 Soras, around a dozen Marsh Wrens, and a
cooperative Virginia Rail. Finally, Owl Woods still had a few Woodcocks
displaying!

Pretty great day considering the weather and time of day, with 105 species
in total, including 5 Monroe birds for me! Nice way to wrap up my last
month in Rochester.

There is a Black-necked Stilt at Kumpf Marsh at Iroquois national wildlife refuge on route 77 right now .I got here only a short while ago and saw the bird almost immediately. It's in the middle of the marsh and showing nicely only about 50 yards from the gate on route 77. Viewing is from feeder road.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] 23 Brant geese at Seneca Lake SP @ Geneva, NY (5/7/17)
After Becky got off work & had lunch at 4 p.m. with us, she & I went to
Geneva, scarcely daring to hope we'd find the Brant mentioned in a post
much earlier in the day.

Before I even got to the park entrance, she spotted them on the grass to
the East of the Visitor's Center. She only has a little point & shoot
Canon camera but she got some nice pictures. The Brant weren't really
skittish so she walked about 30 ft. behind them & "herded" them towards
me as I sat in the car. She was thrilled to finally see them. I had held
an injured one that John & I took to Cornell some 12 yrs. ago so I knew
how beautiful they are.

The jaunt yielded us 3 new osprey nests as well, even tho' they're not
in the Cayuga basin. We saw Chimney swifts over the Smith's Opera House
in Geneva, our 1st for the yr..

At_Mud Lock_ we saw a bald eagle in a tree near the new nest which is
still quite visible. The waters of Seneca River & canal are quite high
& overflowing the banks from the lock northward.

I have noticed that bird during the padt week. There used to be a group of 6 or so domestic geese at the North end of the Bay some 6 years ago, or so. This may be one left over from them.


Good Birding,

I crossed paths with a Graylag Goose at Lasalle Landing Park, Penfield NY, this afternoon. It was on the east side of the, usually, small body of water east of the park. It was eating grass with Canada Geese, sleeping when I left. It could be easily overlooked while sleeping, the grass is growing.


I took a distant photo that can be seen in this eBird checklist:

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] orchard oriole, snowy egret
I've had a 1st spring male Orchard oriole coming to my jelly feeder off and on all day today. Also 2 male & 1 female Baltimore orioles. A pair of Rose-breasted grosbeaks showed up yesterday but haven't been seen today. Other 1 day birds recently have been Red-breasted nuthatch and Purple finch (2 males one day and a female the next).

I have 2 pair of Bluebirds, both using PVC houses. One pair has 5 young (12 days old) and the other has 6 young (10 days old). The pair w/5 nestlings has a "helper at the nest", another male, presumably from one of last years broods. Interesting to watch both males come to a mealworm feeder and then fly to the house to feed the nestlings. The female seems to oversee things while they're busy going back & forth between feeder & house.

Tree swallows have shown interest in a house but haven't started nesting, probably due to the miserable weather.

Pictures were posted by someone on the Eaton Birding Society FB page of a Snowy egret (good pics, positive ID) at Seneca Lake State Park which I may try to find sometime tomorrow. Haven't seen any postings on here or Cayugabirds so I thought I'd help get the word out.

Although the raging waters of Flint Creek drowned out all birdsong at first, we were greeted at the entrance by mewing Catbirds and burbling House Wrens. Once we got to the power cut, things started to pick up: away from the water sounds we quickly picked up on songs and got good looks at Common Yellowthroat, Yellow and Nashville warblers. Further into the woods, we ran into a nice pocket of passerines, all of which gave us nice views: Yellow-rumped, Black-throated Blue, Blackburnian, and Magnolia Warblers, American Redstart, Ovenbird, and pretty Blue-headed Vireos joined our list of visible birds. Once we turned around and headed back, we found our first male Rose-breasted Grosbeak of the trip. All in all, we did not have as many birds as in past years, but a nice variety and better views: our trip list ended at 41 species. As usual, we ended our day at the Blue Ribbon Diner where great food and conversation put the cap on our spectacular morning. Thank you to all who came out, and I hope to see you next year! :)

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Graylag Goose - Lasalle Landing Park
I crossed paths with a Graylag Goose at Lasalle Landing Park, Penfield NY, this afternoon. It was on the east side of the, usually, small body of water east of the park. It was eating grass with Canada Geese, sleeping when I left. It could be easily overlooked while sleeping, the grass is growing.


I took a distant photo that can be seen in this eBird checklist:

Car repairs got me to Canandaigua again. At Kershaw Park the Sanderling is still there, and there was a White-crowned Sparrow in the bushes around the beach house. Out on the lake we're at least 16 Sterna terns, nearly all apparent Commons and one possible Forster's. Need to study my photos of that one. At City Pier there was one Common Tern on the rocks with 2 Caspians. There were also 8 Red-breasted Mergansers by Steamboat Landing

2 white-crowned sparrows at my house in Getzville, NY, yesterday.

My records show almost all white-crowned migrants here are in the May 1-May 5 window. I wonder if the species can adapt if climate change influences their food supply?

Last evening, my non-birding husband reported that he had seen a "robin-sized bird, chunkier than a robin, with yellow on its body and white on its wings" at our feeder. When presented with pictures of a female Rose-breasted and an Evening Grosbeak, he easily chose the latter. I'll spare you the details of how I managed to miss seeing the bird, but I was in the house at the time, so I know you all feel my pain. Meanwhile, I happened upon Kevin Griffith this morning, who reported having one at his house last evening; there have also been reports coming out of the Ithaca area.

So...keep those feeders full, and keep your eyes glued to them.

Content-Type: text/plain; charset="utf-8"

I went to Batavia Waste Water Treatment Plant today, and heard and saw some
birds I hadn't seen this year yet. Mostly I want to say there's a Killdeer
nesting on the road! She's at the intersection of S1, S2 and T4, right
where there was a nest last year. So if you go, look to avoid causing her
demise! I asked the plant manager if he'd barricade her off as was done
last year.

A visit on a cold day like today provided a chance to look at the multitude
of swallows up close, which was lots of fun. The insect hatch was
impressive, too. I have to say, Barn Swallows don't have the upper hand
with the feisty Tree Swallows! I witnessed several attacks.

This spring, the Buffalo Ornithological Society funded the completion of

Other local hawks were total no-shows today.

Non-raptor Observations:
Bluebirds were active, as well as a couple of Palm Warblers. A few Purple
Martins with Tree Swallows and Barn Swallows chased insects low over the
newly mowed lawns. On the pond were a pair of Common Mergansers and two
Solitary Sandpipers

Predictions:
Temperature and winds will be very much like today and the rain will
continue throughout the day. Most likely another washout.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Northern Flicker - Olcott
A pair of Northern Flickers were on the chase high up in my maple trees 3
times yesterday between 10:30 am and noon. Much to my surprise, one landed
out of view under one of my fir trees at 4:30 pm. It flew out 15 minutes
later, landed on a branch below the maple tree with a nest box , started
preening, then flew up to the top of the box to complete that exercise
before flying off. It never went inside the box, but one did 10 April 2015,
though never nesting in it.

It was in view long enough to capture the photos below in the share of an
interesting observation for the day.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Batavia WWTP today
I went to Batavia Waste Water Treatment Plant today, and heard and saw some
birds I hadn't seen this year yet. Mostly I want to say there's a Killdeer
nesting on the road! She's at the intersection of S1, S2 and T4, right
where there was a nest last year. So if you go, look to avoid causing her
demise! I asked the plant manager if he'd barricade her off as was done
last year.

A visit on a cold day like today provided a chance to look at the multitude
of swallows up close, which was lots of fun. The insect hatch was
impressive, too. I have to say, Barn Swallows don't have the upper hand
with the feisty Tree Swallows! I witnessed several attacks.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] keep those feeders full!
Last evening, my non-birding husband reported that he had seen a "robin-sized bird, chunkier than a robin, with yellow on its body and white on its wings" at our feeder. When presented with pictures of a female Rose-breasted and an Evening Grosbeak, he easily chose the latter. I'll spare you the details of how I managed to miss seeing the bird, but I was in the house at the time, so I know you all feel my pain. Meanwhile, I happened upon Kevin Griffith this morning, who reported having one at his house last evening; there have also been reports coming out of the Ithaca area.

So...keep those feeders full, and keep your eyes glued to them.

Pat Martin

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] warblers & other things
A trip up to Firehouse woods/Church trail yielded numerous Palm warblers and some Yellow-rumped but large portions of the Firehouse trail were under water and Church trail was submerged right at the parking lot, and me w/o my high boots! Decided to try Cobbs Hill park and it was fairly productive. Good looks (although leaves are much further advanced there than along the lakeshore) at Black-throated blue, Black-throated green and Ovenbird. Other highlights included a N. parula (had great looks at one yesterday in Canandaigua), Black-and-white warbler, Yellow-rumped warbler, Wood thrush, and Red-breasted nuthatch. Back in Canandaigua Mark Brown led me to the Sanderling he found yesterday at Kershaw Park.

Weather:
It was quite cool most of the day with temps just getting slightly above 50
F. Strong winds were coming mostly from the north. Cloud cover started out
heavy but the skies were clear and sunny by the end.

Raptor Observations:
It was a very slow day with a cool, northerly component to the winds most
of the day, keeping birds low. Only one, small kettle of 5 TVs developed,
everything else showed up one by one. Both eagles were immatures.

Non-raptor Observations:
Folks have been asking about the Red-headed Woodpeckers. I'm happy to
report they are back!

A little flock of White-crowned Sparrows were fun to listen to while the
Barn Swallows kept me entertained.

As I walked around the edges to keep warm at one point, I came upon my FOY
YELLOW-THROATED VIREO - beautiful!

Predictions:
Rain will be developing mid-day but the winds prior to that should contain
a southerly component. Perhaps there will be some birds in the morning.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] FOS Veery - Olcott
Veery is my best call on this thrush species. I'm familiar with the Hermit
Thrush and Wood Thrush that I have seen in my yard during seasonal
migrations, but the size, plumage and behavior of this solitary bird was
distinct enough to sort out for the ID. If correct, it will be a FOL bird
for me.

It was here from 4:50 PM to 7:22 PM and very attracted to the sprinkler set
up near my brush pile, stock tank and diseased black spruce tree. I had the
time and luck to photograph it over the sighting/observation session to
document what I was able to capture in the share. (Flickr Album below).
Comments and ID confirmation are most welcomed. Thank you.

We had FOY male Rose-breasted Grosbeak at sunflower seed feeder today.

Also our 4th visit (that we know of) by a female Pileated to a suet feeder,
the first year we've had one. Since March 21st she's come to a good-sized
wooden feeder, but on one occasion we saw her clinging to one of those
small metal cages for packaged suet/seed. Afterward she executed a very
awkward but successful take-off.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] shorebirds including dowitchers in Avon/Caledonia area of Livingston County
I had some good totals for both species diversity and numbers this morning with the highlight being the flooded field just west of the village of Avon in the Town of Caledonia that is in the triangle formed by US20, SR-5 and the Genesee Valley Greenway. There were about 100 shorebirds spread through the flooded area, mostly a mix of both yellowlegs, but also pectorals, least, solitary and he highlight was 2 dowitchers (either LB or central population SB, given the extent of orange/rufous coloration). I viewed the flooded area from both US-20 as well as the Greenway with the better viewing being had by walking the greenway for about a half mile to get to a point closest to the main flooded section of field. I did not have a scope, and one would be very useful as the birds are in the edges of the vegetation and anywhere from 50-500 meters from the viewing points. The dowitchers were near some of the exposed piles of dirt out in the middle of the flooded area in the strip of vegetation that bisects the main pool of water. There were also decent numbers of neotropical migrants along the greenway. Full checklist is here http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S36479738

The Avon DEC pond is up some due to the rain, but still had some shorebirds as well as a few warblers and an oriole. http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S36479304

The rain and storm front brought in three FOS species into my yard - one
male Baltimore Oriole, 4 male and one female Rose-breasted Grosbeak, and a
lone White-crowned Sparrow that I was able to photograph (images below).
Just before dark at 7:47 PM an Indigo Bunting flew in and out of my black
spruce tree. With luck, it may show up tomorrow for a portrait.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Worm-eating Warbler - Forest Lawn Cemetery, Buffalo - Alec Humann
This morning at 10am, HM Bateman found a Worm-eating Warbler along Warbler Ridge at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Buffalo. This is the same area as last spring's WEWA. It was relocated this afternoon by several birders and was being seen up until 7pm when the cemetery closes its gates. Thirteen species of warblers as well as Wood and Swainson's Thrushes and Veery were seen in the vicinity as well. At least a dozen Ovenbirds along the ridge. For those going to look tomorrow, focus your efforts on the south end of the ridge where the green dumpster is. The bird was seen at the top of the ridge as well as in the evergreens along the creek at the south end.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Shorebirds - Niagara County
For those birding Niagara County in the next couple of weeks, you might want
to check out a couple of farm field puddles for shorebirds. One is on the
north side of Youngstown-Wilson Road (Y-W Road), just a short ways west of
Fitch Road in the Town of Wilson. The other is on the east side of
Ransomville Road, about a half mile north of Braley Road in the Town of
Porter. These fields are only about two miles apart. A scope is necessary,
especially for the Ransomville Road birds, as this puddle is set far back.
Today at these two spots, I had well over 100 shorebirds in total with many
LESSER YELLOWLEGS and PECTORAL SANDPIPERS and quite a few LEAST SANDPIPERS.
There were six DUNLIN on Ransomville Road, one SPOTTED SANDPIPER on Y-W
Road, and one BLACK-BELLIED PLOVER at each spot, the one on Y-W Road being
in alternate plumage, while the other was in non-adult plumage. The
Youngstown-Wilson road field actually has several wet areas and is
attracting many gulls and five species of ducks (Mallard, Black, Pintail,
both Teal), as well as Caspian Terns. There were two AMERICAN PIPITS at the
Ransomville Road spot, a species that has been surprisingly hard to come by
this spring, at least for me. Although there is now lots of
appropriate-looking shorebird habitat throughout Western NY, the birds seem
to prefer the same puddles that have attracted them for the past couple of
weeks. So, be sure to check these two spots if you're in the neighborhood.



Other highlights today were 12 species of warblers in the yard, and an
earlyish BAY-BREASTED WARBLER on Dietz Road (the east side of Four Mile
Creek SP). There were lots of other warblers at the latter spot but the rain
kept me from checking them out properly.



Good birding!

Raptor Observations:
Not many birds but a curious Peregrine Falcon. Had the plumage of an adult
gray Gyrfalcon on top. The bird had a long-winged look, but not broad
winged or tail or back and the body was not robust. Wing beat was Peregrine
like.I never got on the head. I have never seen a Gyrfalcon and still
haven't but this was an odd bird last seen going low over the marina area
going SE sometime after 2 P.M., people time.

Non-raptor Observations:


Predictions:
S winds thru the day but chances of rain have increased and for a longer
period thru the day. If there are long gaps showing in the radar it may be
worth a visit.

The shelties and I took my one-year-old grandson (and his parents) on a
little walk at the Northampton Park Nature Trail a little after noon,
and although it wasn't exactly a peak time of day, a Blue-winged Warbler
was singing non-stop at the far end of the little loop going down to the
creek. I stopped to try to see the bird, and almost immediately a
Black-throated Blue Warbler popped up and flew right towards us, giving
a great look.

Other firsts of the year for me -- Nashville Warbler, Catbird, and Wood
Thrush on Eagle Harbor-Waterport Rd yesterday.

I think the fun times have begun!

Common Yellowthroat and Field SparrowField Sparrow. The most exciting
moment was having a Crow harassing an immature Bald Eagle as it flew low

Yesterday, migrants at TAS were somewhat sparse. Best of all was a group of 4 Rusty Blackbirds. It is sad that there were so few. There were numerous Yellow-rumped Warblers fly catching at Way Pond, numerous White-throated Sparrows, and a Great-crested Flycatcher that was heard only.

There were also breeding birds such as Red-winged Blackbirds, Swamp Sparrows, Tree Swallows, and a lone Eastern Bluebird.

I will be leading a RBA field trip at TAS on Thursday, May 4 along with Richard Ashworth. We meet at the parking lot at 7:30 AM. Right now, the weather forecast is for rain. 🙁

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Conesus Lake Inlet
In the pm of Friday, April 29 I caught sight of FOY Baltimore Oriole. The
bird flew from the inlet water to a residential flowering tree and sang
merrily whenever I was in earshot. Along with that, were two blue-gray
gnatcatchers and one yellow warbler, both FOY. This was in addition to the
yellow-rumped (Myrtle) warblers and the lone palm warbler I've seen there
this week - pine warblers were noted more at the Canadice Lake outlet and
the north-end trail at Hemlock Lake. I had a green heron at Conesus Lake
Inlet earlier in the week, but have not seen it since (apparently a
rarity.) This has been an exciting week!

Happy birding!
Terry Bohling

Visitors:
A keen contingent from the Philadelphia area joined the 3 Pennsylvanians
and Mark and Anne came from Manhattan and got the Black Vulture from behind
us. Great observers, great help and a fun day.


Weather:
Moderately strong SE and SW winds for the first 4 hours and then mild and
then changing to mild NE. The large flights were in the A.M. coinciding
with the stronger winds. Warm. Cloud cover from 40 to 70 % with and about
25% were high and wispy.

Raptor Observations:
Another fine raptor day with nice numbers and variety. First Black Vulture,
6 Golden Eagles, 1 Northern Goshawk,5 different buteos.

Non-raptor Observations:


Predictions:
Warm thru the night,mild to moderately strong WNW and NW winds. A S wind is
better but the W element should make for a decent day.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Near lakeshore - HB west end 4/27, Charlotte area piers 4/28 - Sanderling EARLY
      List for Hamlin Beach west End yesterday will just note making walking the trail easier.      Today on the Summerville pier at the mouth of the Genesee River there were single juv. Dunlin and Sanderling. VERY EARLY for Sanderling here.Bob Spahn, <rspahn...>
Ontario Beach and Piers, Monroe, New York, US
Apr 28, 2017 8:20 AM - 8:55 AMBob Spahn
Protocol: Stationary
Comments:    Stopped at Ontario Beach to search beach and piers from the Charlotte side pier just out past the lake edge so all of beach visible. Scoped beach - nothing. Then scoped Summerville Pier - lots of gulls and terns and two shorebirds - juv Dunlin and Sanderling. I think this may be my first April Sanderling.
    Just to be sure I was not having some sort of size brain cramp, I then drove to the Irondequoit side and walked way out the Summerville pier to get close to the shorebirds. A fisherman had waiked out and pushed most of the gulls and terns to the last 50 ft. of the pier, but the two shorebirds showed up closer to the shore than him and I scoped from close range. Original ID good.
28 species

Canada Goose  4
Long-tailed Duck  2
Red-breasted Merganser  9
Double-crested Cormorant  30
Sharp-shinned Hawk  1
Sanderling  1    Bird picked out on Summerville pier about 3/4 of the way out from Charlotte pier at the water edge. Jumped out by VERY white appearance, longer than peep black bill, black legs, and black patch near the front edge of the folded wing. It was a bit smaller than the brown-backed shorebird right close by that I ID'd as Dunlin from the longish drooped bill and partial belly patch.
    Later up close, the spangly, black and white back of the Sanderling and plumage of the Dunlin placed them both as birds retaining juv plumage.
    I usually expect Sanderling in late May and some years we do not have any reported until July. This is probably a first in April for me. [I likely have that data, but not easily accessible.] In my tracking of special dates in a copy of the old Monroe County Checklist, I do have a record for 4/21/93 at Irondequoit Bay outlet, and the raw data for the MCC date distributions shows only 1 date before May 16 and that is a 4/16, the only other April date.
Dunlin  1
Spotted Sandpiper  1

Protocol: Traveling
0.8 mile(s)
Comments:    Birding west with Tom Smith. Stopped briefly at lakewatch, but quiet overhead and over lake, so we went on to west end trail. A part of this walk and about 1/2 hour of the time was to take a hand saw and substantially cut open the sumac blowdown across the trail not far from the start. Done. The later locust blowdown is short and easily passable, and you can walk around the big mess near the return to the service road.
    The woods were VERY QUIET today. Some hawks overhead.
    Near the restrooms at Parking Lot 1 at start and finish, each stop there was a passage of a flock of about 100 Blue Jays moving west to east. First big Blue Jay move I have caught this spring.

The pond here at the DEC office in Avon is drawn down again this spring to allow the work on the dams to continue. Once again this is providing good shorebird habitat as evidence by the numbers of shorebirds present this morning. There were 2 Killdeer, 1 Pectoral Sandpiper, 4 Least Sandpiper, 7 Spotted Sandpiper, 6 Solitary Sandpiper, and 5 Lesser Yellowlegs. All were seen on the mud flats at the south end of the main pond. Also present was a FOY Purple Martin.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Backyard Warblers Today - Olcott
Two species of first-of-spring arrivals showed up in my yard today - two
Myrtle Warblers in a black spruce tree at 10:50 AM and two Nashville
Warblers on the ground by a sprinkler running into my stock tank at 3:37 PM.
Both species were here for not much over a minute. Considering the timing
and the near head to tail incoming flight of the Nashville's, is it safe to
assume the lighter colored is also a Nashville ? Photos in album below.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] Yellow Warblers, Great-crested Flycatcher, Warbling Vireo near Mallard Overlook
The shelties and I spent a few hours looking for spring migrants in the
Iroquois NWR area, covering from south of Mallard Overlook to Tibbets to
South Woods Road. First by foot and later by car when one of the
shelties began to flag a bit.

Things started slowly, for the first hour, the main effect of the
weather change seemed to be the disappearance of most of the kinglets
which had been saturating our walks recently. But about an hour into
the walk, I found my first Yellow Warbler, almost immediately joined by
my first Warbling Vireo. Then in rapid succession, more Yellows, a
Broad-winged Hawk, a Great-crested Flycatcher, and yet more Yellows. I
thought it very strange that for the first hour, the only hint of Yellow
Warblers was a possible far-off song that I thought I might have
imagined, and then a little after 8 they were everywhere. Not sure if
they were just arriving, or whether they were waiting for warmer temps
to sing. I reported 6 to Ebird, but suspect I could have racked up
almost any number, if I had focused on it as I drove upper Sour Springs
and along Tibbet.

The main surprise to me, though was the Great-crested, it seems very early.

Subject: [GeneseeBirds-L] FOS Brown Thrasher - Olcott
A solitary first-of-season Brown Thrasher arrived in my yard by the brush
pile early this afternoon at 2:30 PM and was last seen feeding on a suet
cake on a stump at 6:45 PM. Previous first spring arrivals were for brief
periods on 20 April 2012 at 7:24 PM and on 06 May 2016. Compared to the few
late evening photos from those sessions, I had more time this year to create
the album below to share today. This sighting strongly suggests the three
thrush species may show up within the week as noted in past years.

Official Counter: Jim Landau

Observers:

Visitors:
Leane Schultz


Weather:
Almost like 2 different days. The 1st 2 1/2 hours of the count was heavy
overcast with negligible southerly winds and mild temps. Then the skies
cleared off for the last 2 1/2 hours, the winds shifted to northwest and
freshened.

Raptor Observations:
Raptors were definitely on the move for the 1st half of the count, but the
main flight line shifted farther to the southeast and out of view when the
winds changed. Too bad, it was shaping up to be a busy day.

Non-raptor Observations:
A Great Blue Heron joined a small kettle of mixed raptors overhead. A nice
pulse of Blue Jays migrated north in the 4th hour.

Predictions:
At 8pm the National Weather Service says, "Occasional showers and
thunderstorms, mainly after 5pm. Some of the storms could be severe and
produce heavy rainfall. High near 87. South wind 13 to 16 mph, with gusts
as high as 26 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%." Perhaps continued
movement on south winds in advance of the front.

Report submitted by Jim Landau (<landaujr...>)


Directions to site:
Lakeside Cemetery is located in Hamburg, NY which is about 10 miles
southwest of Buffalo, NY at the Hamburg Exit 57 of the NY State Thruway.
Bear right after the toll booth onto Camp Road (Route 75). Proceed through
the traffic light at Southwestern Blvd.(Route 20). The entrance to Lakeside
Cemetery is on the left, less than 1/4 mile from the light. The watch is
normally conducted half way between the entrance and the woods.
An alternate site for easterly wind flights is at the William Williams Ball
Park, located on Rogers Rd. Take Route 20 south from Camp Rd. Turn right at
the Rogers Rd. traffic light, just past the Walmart store. The entrance to
the ball park is on the left just before the railroad crossings.

I was treated to a near 15 minute first spring visit from a solitary Fox
Sparrow in my yard shortly before dark last night. I was fortunate to
capture it in the Flickr images below. Previous sightings in past years were
rest stops on 14 April 2012 and 24 October 2016. I'm not sure about their
relative abundance status in our WNY reporting region, but wanted to share
my sighting.
