I spoke with Steven Robinson the person who found
the Snowy Owl at the Greater Binghamton Airport
on December 23rd. He took a photo of it with his
cell phone and it is legit. See attached.
Unfortunately, he is out there often and has not seen the
bird since. I asked the airport operations
A snowy owl swooped down to ground level near the food court at the Waterloo
outlet while I was shopping. Looked mostly white. No one else even looked as I
yelled Snowy owl. Could it be the same one seen around Montezuma? It flew over
the building and I couldn't relocate it. How cool!
Ann Mitchell, Gary Kohlenberg, and I spent the morning driving roads
in Seneca County, centered on Kings Corners Rd, in a fruitless search
for a reported Snowy Owl.
On a similar note, my reading of the Wiegand Eames map, which we use
to delineate the Cayuga Lake Basin, says that the
This morning (Tuesday 27 Dec) Laurie and I took a second lovely walk in Hammond Hill State Forest. Having gone there Christmas day to not see Bob's White-winged Crossbills, today we went to not see his Northern Goshawk. Again I was not surprised, because both species are wide-ranging and
My sister and I saw a lovely male BELTED KINGFISHER at Myers Park Monday
afternoon, perched in a bush by Salmon Creek, on the Salt Point side, near the
outlet to the lake.

Shirley and I were driving N on rte 89 about noon today and passed a Rough-leg
perched on a power pole near Interlaken. He said he was waiting for Gary, and

quiet and got quieter as the rain started. Saw nothing
And yet another BK seen 22 Dec. flying over Van Cleef Lake in Seneca Falls then
perching on a low post on the north side close to the water.
Also seen were Canadas several Hooded Mergs.
Mud Lock area had many Hoodies C. Mergs, more than I can remember seeing
there. Lots of Tundra Swans, too.
Several days before Xmas, a friend of ours brought over the remains of a
deer torso he had shot. We threw it on top of a large brushpile in the yard
to keep the coyotes from dragging it off. So far it has been a boon to our
4 YARD CROWS who have spent some of their daytime activities pulling
Although we had no Snowy Owl, we did see two KESTRELS, two N. HARRIERS ,one of
them a dapper male, a small, (~20), flock of REDPOLLS and thousands of SNOW
GEESE, CANADAS and more than a few hunters around Kings Corners Road. It was
I still haven't seen any R.L. Hawks this
They're everywhere! They're everywhere! (well, almost:)
We saw one yesterday in Center Lisle as we were speeding south on Route
79. There's a little pond near the Dudley Diner, visible from the road,
and a wire crosses right over the pond. The kingfisher was in the middle
of the wire, looking
There were 11 No. Pintail with Blacks and Mallards along the shoreline at
Seneca Lake State Park in Geneva today. A nice group of about 60 Common
Goldeneye were offshore. Heavy waves, rain and constant diving prevented
study of a rounder headed female with a fairly extensive yellow tip to the
