[cayugabirds-l] Little Gull, Mackenzie-Childs bluffs

2015-04-19 Thread Jay McGowan
An adult LITTLE GULL was just on the water off the Mackenzie-Childs bluffs just north of Aurora. At 855 it took off with a few Bonaparte's and headed south towards Aurora. Lots of Bonaparte's in Aurora Bay and off Long Point for it to hang out with. Jay -- Cayugabirds-L List Info:
