  the Niagara Frontier Region.

  September 22, one the rarest vagrants in the
  region, a NORTHERN WHEATEAR, in a yard on
  Mezzio Road in the Chautauqua County Town of
  Sheridan. The nearest NORTHERN WHEATEARS breed
  in the eastern Canadian arctic, and migrate
  across the Atlantic Ocean to Africa. In the
  past 52 years, there are three previous records
  of the species in the BOS archives, and
  astonishingly, all records have occurred
  between September 21 and September 27.

  From Niagara County, September 26, two CLAY-
  COL. SPARROWS still at one their rare breeding
  sites in the region - Krull Park in Olcott. The
  CLAY-COL. SPARROWS were one of seven sparrow
  species in the park, including a migrant
  LINCOLN'S SPARROW.

  Also at Krull Park recently, BROWN THRASHER,
  ORANGE-CR. WARBLER, PINE WARBLER, TENNESSEE
  WARBLER and COMMON YELLOWTHROAT, plus a
  CACKLING GOOSE among 500 CANADA GEESE.

  In the Iroquois Refuge, good numbers of
  shorebirds at Kumpf Marsh, next to Cayuga Pool
  on Route 77. September 24, three LONG-B.
  DOWITCHERS plus BLACK-BELLIED PLOVER,
  SEMIPALMATED PLOVER, KILLDEER, GREATER
  YELLOWLEGS, LESSER YELLOWLEGS, SEMIPALM.
  SANDPIPER, LEAST SANDPIPER, WHITE-R. SANDPIPER,
  PECTORAL SANDPIPER, STILT SANDPIPER and
  WILSON'S SNIPE. Also, 2 SANDHILL CRANES,
  AMERICAN BITTERN and VIRGINIA RAIL.

  Amid shopping centers and I-290, in the wetland
  at North Bailey and Ridge Lea Road in Amherst,
  GREATER YELLOWLEGS, LESSER YELLOWLEGS and
  PECTORAL SANDPIPER.

  September 17 at Rock Point Provincial Park in
  Dunnville, Ontario, 10 species of migrant
  warblers, and SANDERLINGS on the park's Lake
  Erie shore.

  Other recent reports - two LEAST BITTERNS at
  Dunkirk Harbor. Night migrants heard over
  Buffalo and Tonawanda, VEERY, GRAY-CHEEKED
  THRUSH and SWAINSON'S THRUSH. And a real
  surprise in the Elmwood Village in Buffalo, a
