Hi all,
Livia and I started out in Dryden this morning but ended up going around
the lake. Highlights were EVENING GROSBEAKS at the Confers on Hammond Hill;
the beautiful and cooperative AMERICAN AVOCET along the lakeshore in Geneva
(photos soon), along with Red-necked Grebe, Surf and White-winged scoter,
Bonaparte's Gulls, and many Common and one Forster's tern offshore from the
same area; 2 UPLAND SANDPIPERS at the Empire Farm Days fairgrounds in
Seneca Falls (don't forget they still would like birders to call ahead); a
mostly winter plumage AMERICAN GOLDEN-PLOVER with many Pectoral Sandpipers,
both yellowlegs, and dozens of Bonaparte's Gulls in the Kip Island Fields,
the flooded fields on either side of the thruway visible from Rt. 90 just
west of the village of Montezuma. Waterfowl diversity was good most of the
places we went, including Montezuma, but we didn't find anything other than
the usual species there. A gray fox running across Warren Road on the drive
home was a nice surprise as well.
