This afternoon while walking on the Cayuga Waterfront Trail in Ithaca's Cass Park I saw an entirely BLONDE NORTHERN ROUGH-WINGED SWALLOW (I think) foraging over the inlet just south of the Treman boat ramp. It's a strikingly beautiful bird, and I'd like to know if anyone else sees it, and where, and if they think it's another species. There were several other Rough-wings around, but also at least one BANK SWALLOW. I'm sure it wasn't one of the BARN SWALLOWS, nor do I think it was a Tree Swallow.
Also of note, I encountered several YELLOW WARBLERS, which I suspect to be migrants. They were foraging low in bushes, short trees, and tall weeds, including in my yard, which was new for my lazy year of yard birding: #42.
