Friday night at Clay Marsh a Sandhill Crane flew by. Derby Hill reports seeing it pass this morning. Earlier in the week a Bald Eagle was seen carrying an American Coot on Seneca Lake at the Geneva Waterfront. Cackling Goose at the north end of Cayuga Lake. Staging/migration of geese has begun in a big way, with a massive roost-flight to Seneca Lake on Monday. Large numbers of ducks at north ends of both Cayuga and Seneca.
