to Buoy 49 where it was spotted soon afterwards by Mike
Tetlow from the west side. Fantastic views of the bird in flight!

dachshund, with a bushy darker tail. I had no idea they were so uncommon!
The whole "out of the car" issue is why I wish there were photo/viewng blinds
in the area across the road, where people could pull off the main drive into
the old trail parking lot and share scopes, provide assistance, and take photos
without obstructing the view of passing cars or disturbing
A trip along the wildlife drive at Montezuma just after 7 PM tMonday yielded
some nice views at Eaton Marsh of a pair of Trumpeter Swans preening in the
gorgeous evening light, while a rather mottled-looking American Golden-Plover
picked along a ridge of mud behind them. Greater and Lesser
After a great RBA field trip, which is not my story to tell (but worth waiting
for!), I headed to a few spots and ended up at the Knox-Marcellus overlook
well after 7 PM for my traditional evening last-call birding. Before too
long, I'd picked out a Phalarope that looked much different
The CasiNO Tyre web site ( http://www.casinofreetyre.com ) points out the risk
of runoff from the parking areas into White Brook as a cause for concern.
It's a good site (discounting the obvious bias towards one side of the issue
which one would expect from the site name!).
I bought my Duck Stamp from the ABA to ensure that my contribution was marked
as non-hunter revenue - not that I deny the many contributions of hunters to
the preservation of our natural lands! That just doesn't represent me best.

I'm gonna come out in favor of keeping the drive pedestrian-free. I know other
places that do have pedestrians (Forsythe's lovely auto loop comes to mind) are
quite successful and enjoyed by many, but in Montezuma's case, what would be
the gain? The pedestrians I've seen on our drive push
, and the Willow Flycatcher at Tschache. Add that to
a spectacular morning at the Pathways trail in Phelps, plus a hearty brunch at
the Blue Ribbon diner, and this was a nearly perfect day. :)

After the Montezuma/RBA field trip today, several of us headed over to Van Dyne
Spoor for some later-evening birding. A young Peregrine Falcon was once again
perched on the power poles, just like last week, but this time we briefly saw
its leg band colors: the right leg had a blue
I had some free time after an RBA field trip today and headed to Montezuma to
bird a bit in the gray and soggy afternoon. I actually had quite a bit of fun,
from watching the Armitage Road eagles while Pileated Woodpeckers called in the
woods (one eventually was seen flying across the road
I saw the American Avocet from East Road, distant but decisive scope views, at
6:30 PM Sunday. Same area of Puddler's Marsh as he was in yesterday.
A Sandhill Crane pair were feeding on the berm not far away, and a Caspian Tern
was on the nearer marsh.The Black-crowned Night Herons at the
