     Another good week for SHOREBIRDS with 17 species being reported from the 
complex. In addition to the more common species STILT SANDPIPER, LONG and SHORT 
BILLED DOWITCHER, WHITE-RUMPED SANDPIPER and WILSON’S PHALAROPE were all found. 
All 17 species were seen either at the Visitor’s Center or along the Wildlife 
Trail. WHITE-RUMPED SANDPIPER and STILT SANDPIPER were also noted at the Morgan 
Road Marshes.
     9/15: A GRAY-CHEEKED THRUSH was found on the Esker Brook Trail.     9/16: 
A late COMMON NIGHTHAWK was seen along the Wildlife Trail.     9/17: An 
ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLER was seen on the Esker Brook Trail. A LESSER BLACK-BACKED 
GULL was reported on the Wildlife Trail. An EURASIAN WIGEON was found at Mays 
Point Pool. A GRAY-CHEEKED THRUSH was seen in the wooded area of VanDyne Spoor 
Road.

Onondaga County------------
     9/12: 2 late COMMON NIGHTHAWKS were seen at Three Rivers WMA north of 
Baldwinsville.     9/15 A rare for upstate YELLOW-CROWNED NIGHT-HERON was found 
on the widewater area of the Erie Canal east of Burdick Road in Fayetteville. 
The bird is a juvenile and is being seen where the feeder canal comes in by the 
aquaduct. It was reported again today!

Madison County------------
     9/19: 9 AMERICAN GOLDEN PLOVERS were seen at the Sky High Sod Farm on 
Lakeport Road north of Chittenango.

Oneida County------------
     9/15: A YELLOW-BELLIED FLYCATCHER was seen at the Spring Farm Nature 
Sanctuary south of Clinton.

Extralimital------------
     9/17: A BROWN BOOBY, sighted at the north end of Cayuga Lake on August 28 
but absent since then, was refound in the same area on Saturday. It seems to 
favor Green Bouy 49. It was seen extensively yesterday from both sides of the 
lake but mostly from Lower Lake Road on the west side and was reported again 
today on the same bouy.      A question. Which county is this bird in when it 
is on the bouy?
