Actually, at 9:54, he was still sleeping, if you can believe that..... But later in the day he was sorting through geese as well -- at Stewart Park in preparation for tomorrow's CBC. Not much to be found, and very low numbers and diversity of waterfowl -- not boding too well for tomorrow. The lake was very calm however, and I did pick up 4 distant LOONS, one of which was a nice RED-THROATED -- these were along the west shore, north of the channel marker. Whoever is counting along the SW shore of Cayuga Lake tomorrow should watch for this bird -- I will be scanning from the lighthouse jetty and Stewart Pard, so we shoulc coordinate numbers.
Good luck to all tomorrow, and Happy New Year, KEN Ken Rosenberg Conservation Science Program Cornell Lab of Ornithology 607-254-2412 607-342-4594 (cell) k...@cornell.edu On Dec 31, 2011, at 9:54 AM, bob mcguire wrote: > Many thousands of Snow Geese just passed low over our house on Whitted Rd > (Snyder Hill area) headed south.
