We saw a single snow goose at the Crane Unit (Van Dyne Spoor Road) for two weeks in April, then not again until July 2. From late April until last week we were not surveying around the unit, only from Van Dyne Spoor Road. It is a large area and it is certainly possible that we just didn't see
All, We had another very successful shorebird walk today Sunday August 25th along the dike between Knox-Marsellus Marsh and Puddler’s marsh. Between 715 am and 200 pm, we had a total of 70 people from different bird clubs around the area. I began with the group mostly from the Cayuga Bird Club.
At VanDyne Spoor Rd late yesterday afternoon near end of road. Flew OK about 300’ from walking in road, out to marsh, as I approached it. Has it been there since last spring or is it early coming south? I have not been at VDS Rd. In ages, so don’t know what’s been there. Pic:
I don’t know how long it has been there, but it was there on 21 July, molting all its primaries. Kevin From: bounce-123850035-3493...@list.cornell.edu On Behalf Of Donna Lee Scott Sent: Sunday, August 25, 2019 1:50 PM To: CAYUGABIRDS-L Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Snow goose At VanDyne Spoor
