Chris and all - Sorry for the lack on information. Ken Kemphues and I let a CBC trip yesterday - up and around the lake, mainly targeting water birds but also scanning the bunting/lark flock at Belltown Dairy for Longspurs (2 found). The other main target was the Snowy Owls at the Seneca Falls Airport. Thanks to Gary’s hard work, we quickly found the first one just east of the runway, then a second one atop one of the hangers. From there we headed over to Hosner Road to look for the repported third owl (also found on Ridge Road). While driving past the quarry we noted a “falcon candidate” perched in the tall trees just in from the main, green building. It was partly obscured by branches. After 45 minutes, nine scopes, and the help of Kevin McGowan we were able to confidently ID it as GYRFALCON.
I went into eBird this morning to search for that sighting and discovered that they have a filter that blocks the exact location of sensitive species. However, for anyone searching for it in the future, it was perched in the same group of trees as last year, best seen from either Hosner or Canoga Roads.
