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!

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!
