Lots of bird species on the move today. In several places we have had small flocks of BONAPARTE'S GULLS in Broome County. Also CASPIAN TERNs in two locations, RED-THROATED LOON in Upper Lisle(rare for Broome), COMMON LOON, and BLUE-WINGED TEAL. Also ROUGH-WINGED SWALLOW and AMERICAN BITTERN. These birds should be in the Cayuga basin soon if not already (I know Bonaparte's gulls have been seen). Not sure if any of these others have been seen this year. I have not checked e-bird.
Also every water way seemed to have many TREE SWALLOWS moving. I literally had a "flux" of tree swallows pass by my scope!! I estimated several hundred in one part of the Susquehanna River alone. Next couple days also look promising weather-wise... Good luck to all.
