I just picked up a Yellow-crowned Night-heron specimen from the Swanson
Wildlife Clinic. They said the bird had been found on Route 13 near the
Ithaca Airport on October 20. It's going to be prepared for the Museum of
Vertebrates sometime this week.
According to Jay McGowan and Tim Lenz this is the first record for that
species in eBird and the first or second for the county, but they can
correct me on that if I'm wrong.
