[cayugabirds-l] Western Grebe at south end

2012-02-27 Thread Brad Walker
Hi all, Tim Lenz and I just spotted the WESTERN GREBE far from shore, but visible from the swan pen at Stewart Park. There is also a woman walking around on the exposed mud with two dogs, leaving very few other birds to be seen. Brad -- Cayugabirds-L List Info:

Larry and I took advantage of the nice day and took a trip around the lake, going up East side and down West side. By far the most impressive sight was the tens of thousands of SNOW GEESE plainly visible and near to shore from the junction of NYS Route 89 and the southern junction of Lower

Tim Lenz and I spent half and hour walking around Sapsucker Woods. We had about 7000 Canada Geese pass overhead in all. We found three CACKLING GEESE among them. One lone bird as soon as we stepped out of the building, in a low group of about 50 birds, and a pair in a group of about 125 birds.
