On Monday 3 March Chris Wood discovered what appears to be the first reported AMERICAN WOODCOCK for the Cayuga Lake Basin - and all upstate NY - according to eBird. It was along the old railroad grade by Monkey Run South in the Town of Dryden in a tamarack swamp which remained wet despite the frigid temperatures. In past years the first woodcock for the basin has often been found in February, often by Nancy Dickinson on her extensive rich grounds in Mecklenburg, but alas, she has moved out of the basin, and the winter is colder. Perhaps there are woodcock there now, wondering what happened to her.
