John, 
I am not sure if they are following Susquehanna or they are just taking a 
direct route. If you look up on the map, it seems they can fly directly to 
Chesapeake Bay in direct line, they don't need to follow Route 15 as we do.  
Route 15 is at least 20 miles left to their target destination in our area. 
Also, as I mentioned earlier the Cayuga Lake southern tip bends to east 
substantially by about  4 or 5 miles to the east from Taughannock State park if 
draw straight line south.  They know what they are doing!

Cheers
Meena

Meena pls pass to Wes and Diane. Sue and I continued on to Seneca Lake where we
found no loons. In thinking about those high Southwestward flyers we believe 
they
had plenty of altitude to spot the Susquehanna and thus took a bit more direct 
route
down Rte 15! (runs alongside the river from Corning south).

At home we also had Fox Sparrow and our FOY American Tree Sparrow.

Terrific morning with good company!

John
