[cayugabirds-l] Lapland Longspur

2013-01-19 Thread bluewing
Bill Howard and I relocated the Lapland Longspur that was reported yesterday by 
Jeff Gerbracht.  The bird was on Daisy Hollow Road this morning at the Cornell 
Farms.  We finally spotted the bird at 11:00 AM.  The longspur was in with 
dozens of Horned Larks and at least one Snow Bunting.  As expected, the birds 
were feeding in the manure spreads that run perpendicular to the road.

Patrick reported a Merlin in the area but we dipped on this species.

Good birding,

At least Three Sandhill Cranes were found at Knox-Marcellus.

There was a Caspian Tern at Larue’s Lagoon.

A Barred Owl was vocalizing at Sapsucker Woods this morning around 9:30 AM
