Hi Meena and John
Have to chime in here, as the lake and I are rather good friends, from a few
thousand hours of rowing and sailing! From Taughannock State Park it's 8 miles
on the water to Stewart Park at the bottom end of the lake, and the west shore
down there (Hog Hole) is only 1.8 miles

I was just looking at ecode section 336-10, which concerns the boundaries of
Stewart Park. A casual reading might suggest that the park extends north into
the lake a considerable distance (all the way to the city line), but this is
not the case. A more careful reading will reveal that within
Thanks for the update.
Do you foresee any future such gatherings this season?

Today morning Loon Watch trip somebody seem to have lost the eye piece cap for
Nikon binoculars. If it is yours please send me an email at m...@cornell.edu.
We did have an incredible loon flight today morning of over 2000 loons. More
details will come from the trip leader Wes or

Around 3:30 pm today, 2 Snow Buntings and at least 3 Horned Larks on the
easternmost hill, Mt Pleasant Rd. I would not have seen them had they not been
flushed by a vehicle going by.

Meena pls pass to Wes and Diane. Sue and I continued on to Seneca Lake where we
found no loons. In thinking about those high Southwestward flyers we believe
had plenty of altitude to spot the Susquehanna and thus took a bit more direct
down Rte 15! (runs alongside the river from
I am not sure if they are following Susquehanna or they are just taking a
direct route. If you look up on the map, it seems they can fly directly to
Chesapeake Bay in direct line, they don't need to follow Route 15 as we do.
Route 15 is at least 20 miles left to their target destination
Good to see you at Taughannoch.
John and Sue Gregoire and I thought that some of the big, loose flocks of
loons that were well north of the point we stood on at Taughannoch was far more
likely to take them over the southern tip of Seneca Lake than to the southern
tip of Cayuga
I had a super time at the loon watch this morning witnessing the large flights
of loons and visiting with everyone there. Gary and I went around the lake
afterwards, and saw many more loons on the lake. Looks like there will be some
more spectacular flights!

With temperatures hovering a few degrees above freezing and winds gusting from
the NW at 20+ knots, conditions seemed perfect for a substantial loon flight
this morning. The 20+ Cayuga Bird Club members and observers who arrived at
Taughannock State Park around dawn were not disappointed.
Great job, Wes.

As someone who frequents Fuertes Bird Sanctuary, I greatly appreciated
Dave's courage and posting and the resulting discussion this brought up.
Since tickets were not issued and the hunters were bitter, shouldn't we
follow up - especially because this has happened before (re: picture of
