Tim Lenz and I just spotted the WESTERN GREBE
far from shore, but visible from the swan pen at Stewart Park. There is
also a woman walking around on the exposed mud with two dogs, leaving very
few other birds to be seen.

Larry and I took advantage of the nice day and took a trip around the
lake, going up East side and down West side. By far the most impressive
sight was the tens of thousands of SNOW GEESE plainly visible and near
to shore from the junction of NYS Route 89 and the southern junction of
Two American Woodcocks just flew low over our heads from one field to
another here at home. No peenting, just some wing noise.

SNOW GEESE early; mostly CANADAS for the last hour. Go there if you can. I

Tim Lenz and I spent half and hour walking around Sapsucker Woods. We had
about 7000 Canada Geese pass overhead in all. We found three CACKLING GEESE
among them. One lone bird as soon as we stepped out of the building, in a
