Yesterday there was a flock of AMERICAN PIPITS in a newly plowed and planted field on Perry City Road, outside Trumansburg... a new bird for my home list, and a new bird for my life list! -Aaron -- Cayugabirds-L List Info: http://www.NortheastBirding.com/CayugabirdsWELCOME

I saw a pair (m f) of EASTERN BLUE BIRDS investigating a nest cavity this morning around 7:30.  The nest (and the birds) were in a walnut tree in my yard on Perry City Rd.  The cavity was used last year with success (but with at least one casualty)... I wonder if it's the same pair. -Aaron
