East side of Cayuga Lake was HOPPING today! Thousands of waterfowl. I started at Cayuga Lake SP. To the right and left, birds dotting the water as far as I could see. 1 lone eagle soaring around. I was here Monday and there were 10 eagles on the ice, ice is gone now though. Here I saw tundra and trumpeter swans, Canada geese, redheads, canvasback, scaup, ring-necks. Mud Lock had bufflehead, hooded mergs, common mergs, a lone golden eye... I think!, Canadas, mallards. The east side of the lake was MUCH rougher and very windy. Couldn’t see any birds on the water, just some Canadas hunkered down along the shore. In Union Springs- nothing on Mill Pond. The other smaller pond just south of it had gadwall, Canadas, buffleheads, black ducks, mallards. Oh, and there were gulls everywhere, as usual. Waterfowl migration is upon us!
