There is an unconfirmed report of a PURPLE GALLINULE in the Town of Allegany in Cattaraugus County, seen yesterday (Thursday). The location, according to the eBird map location, is by Interstate-86, just east of Five Mile Road.
You can see the eBird report here: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S55397648 Although it is not the most confidence-inspiring note, this is a distinctive species and the observer has since indicated to me that he and his brother are now 100% certain of the identification. Good birding!
