Failed to post that I saw my first Buffles: 4 females on Mill Pond on Wed., 9 Nov. 2011.
I have been seeing the long, thick "rivers" of mixed "black birds" going over our house the last 5 days, either out to feed or back to their evening roosts. Gas in Union Springs or at Byrne Dairy & Hess in Auburn has been 15 to 18 cents cheaper per gallon than in Ithaca. Haven't looked today but earlier in the wk. the price was $3.99.9 here & at Byrne, & also at Seneca Falls Lakeside Trading on 89.
