I corresponded with the observer and looked for the bird this morning, from
dawn until around 8:45, but with no luck. He said it was hanging around his
barn and on fences out in his fields all afternoon yesterday, but he has
not seen it so far today. Light rain kept activity low while we were there,
so it's possible it might still be in the area. He said he would let me
know promptly if it reappears today or in coming days, so I will get the
word out with contact information if that happens, but it may have moved on
as these species often does. It did spend all its time on private property
and would have been challenging to see from the road, but Ulf was very
friendly and knowledgable and would undoubtedly be willing to host more
birders should the bird return.

> A SAY’S PHOEBE was reported to eBird in Yates County yesterday. The
> location is a few miles east of Canandaigua Lake. The report is accompanied
> by photos: http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S39568663
> Check the map link in the checklist for a more precise location although
> we know that these links are not always that accurate if the observer does
> not use a phone’s GPS. Most importantly, we do not know if this bird was on
> private property, though it seems likely, and whether or not it can be
> viewed from a public road. Does anyone on this list have more information
> on this report?
> Lastly, Say’s Phoebe is on the state review list and reports to the NYSARC
> that document this bird would be greatly appreciated: http://nybirds.org/

> Good birding!
