No luck with the Common Teal again this evening. Very few Green-winged Teal at all, so I suspect it has departed for the time being, though it could easily turn up again. New arrivals included at least 6 AMERICAN PIPITS foraging along the ice edge and a WILSON'S SNIPE. Jay McGowan Dryden, NY

was the same bird that vacated George Road a few days before. It's certainly possible, but I tend to think not. There are a lot of teal moving through, and I think it's quite likely that we have two Eurasians and an intergrade in the Basin right now. Good birding. Jay McGowan Dryden, NY
