I apologize for the late email. This morning I found a Black Tern feeding and fluttering around the Ithaca Reservoir off Burns Rd. where it crosses Six Mile creek. They are quite uncommon away from Montezuma, although sometimes seen flying up Cayuga Lake during migration. It could be seen from the bridge over the creek. Sometimes it perches during the snow squalls on the island so may be out of view.
