this afternoon I kayaked around the south end of the lake, from Stewart
Park over to Hog Hole. shortly after putting in at Stewart Park, directly
across from the Cascadilla Boat House, I heard what sounded for all the
world like a Prothonotary Warbler singing. it wasn't singing much
(admittedly, it was mid afternoon), but I heard at least four short song
bouts. unfortunately I never saw it, partly because it sang relatively
infrequently (hence difficult to track), and also in part because it seemed
to be moving in the opposite direction from me (the bird was moving
upstream, whereas my kayak party was heading out), so I never got a visual
confirmation. frustrating! but I strongly suspect that there still is a
Prothonotary at the south end of Cayuga Lake, perhaps spending as much or
more time in East Jetty Woods as in Stewart Park.
