I abbreviated Tundra Swans in my earlier post (T. Swans) by mistake, sorry for the confusion. They are still being seen all around Montezuma (main pool, East Rd, etc). I also had a flock of turkeys by the corner of Sutterby and Lamb Rds, just NW of the village of Tyre on Friday AM. --

Many thousands of Snow Geese just passed low over our house on Whitted Rd (Snyder Hill area) headed south. I was able to pick out at least two candidates for Ross's Goose. Smaller body, short neck, shorter thinner wings. Where was Ken Rosenberg when I needed him?! Bob McGuire --

I went out fairly late today, so didn't see a lot. I saw snow geese near my house on Chestnut Ridge Rd. in Sennett. Went by the Mud Lock eagle's nest but no one was home. Drove through Montezuma, but nothing much different- C geese and swans.. At Benning, there was a Great Blue Heron.

Thank-you. Suddenly now I'm able to see on the eBird map 8 reports of the Outlet Mall bird between 12/26 and 12/30 (including a couple which are rather sloppily located), plus Joe Slattery's 12/26 report from King's Corner's Rd above the Cobblestone Winery in Varick. I guess reports of rarer birds
