Castle Creek is right on the NW "corner" of Seneca. If you know where the Ramada is, just a short ways north of that. There's a great paved bike path to follow. I was just there 20 minutes ago, no sighting of whimbrels, but possibly 2 ruddys taking flight from the end of the jetty with some

I am reasonably confident that there are 14 first-cycle LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULLS off the tip of the spit at Myers Park (6 PM). There is also a RUDDY TURNSTONE on one of the branches sticking out of the water. Mark Chao -- Cayugabirds-L List Info:

While I know where the park is, I don't know the landmarks you are talking about. Is Castle Creek the creek coming into the lake on the east side? On the map I see a tiny creek about in the middle, too. Sent from my iPad > On May 31, 2017, at 4:22 PM, Norwalk, James

Just came from there. There were two Whimbrels at the end of the Castle Creek jetty, constantly being flushed by walkers. They would return, but in a very short while would be flushed again. These birds need a place to rest for extended periods, but just can't get it here. Looks like I'm going to

There were just 4 Whimbrel and 10 Ruddy Turnstones at Lakefront Park, Geneva. They were on the small beach near the new metal bridge over Castle Creek. They were flushed by dog walkers while Linda Mott and I were there but returned to the beach. At times they would land on the rocks on the

Hardly news any more, but there is (still) a singing Pine Warbler singing this morning from the big White Pines near the stone gates to Sapsucker Woods along Sapsucker Woods Road. I heard it singing two different times when crossing the road (between point counts) and saw it once. I know several

A Ruddy Turnstone is sitting on the driftwood in the bay on the south side of the spit at Myers Point. The immature Lesser Black-backed Gull count is up to five! Six Semipalmated Sandpipers were on the spit when I arrived but took off to the north a few minutes ago. Jay -- Cayugabirds-L List
