I spent a few hours along East Rd yesterday between 8 and 11 AM with results 
similar to Drew's and Gary's.  No Buff-breasted Sandpiper or Red-necked 
Phalarope for me either, but I did see 2 WILSON'S PHALAROPES, 1 AMERICAN 
GOLDEN-PLOVER, a few WILSON'S SNIPE and an EURASIAN WIGEON, plus 1 seemingly 
early DUNLIN.  There were also 20 or more Dowitchers, which I took for 
Short-billed.

I experienced Drew's BOBOLINK movement as well, but I was on Rt 89 along the 
Seneca/Wayne County border watching some juvenile Horned Larks around 7:45.  I 
didn't observe any other noticeable landbird migration yesterday, but I did 
have a WHIP-POOR-WILL make a few quick calls around 8:15 from somewhere in the 
woods behind me.  This was while I was at the first cut out in the treeline 
along Towpath Rd.

  I spent time on East Road today, but later than Drew's report. Around noon I 
had 2 Black-bellied Plovers and 2 Wilson's Phalaropes but no Buff-breasted or 
A. Golden-Plovers. The second trip back in the late afternoon had me scanning 
with Dominic Sherony. We eventually found 6 A. Golden-Plover and 3 
Black-bellied Plover. I missed seeing Red-necked Phalarope and Buff-breasted 
again, but did see a Eurasian Wigeon. 
  The viewing is so distant and unpredictable that I wouldn't be surprised if 
the Buff-breasted is still there somewhere.

  I spent a couple hours birding along Towpath Rd from 6-9:30am. Early on there 
was fog moving in and out, but I found a Red-necked Phalarope and 1 (and 
possibly a second) Wilson's Phalarope among the more numerous shorebird 
species. I was unable to refind the previously reported Buff-breasted Sandpiper 
or American Golden-Plovers from East Rd. 


  There were a number of passerine migrants as well. Warblers included-


  American Redstart - 3
  Cerulean Warbler - 3 (including one adult male)
  Blackburnian Warbler - 1
  Yellow Warbler - 2
  Chestnut-sided Warbler - 2


  There was a good northward movement of Bobolinks, particularly in the first 
couple hours I was there.
