Just the highlights of reports received September 29 through
October 6 from the Niagara Frontier Region.

To the east of the region, near Rochester, a GRAY KINGBIRD
was present October 1 through at least the 4th, along
Manitou Road at Salmon Creek, near Braddocks Bay in Monroe
County. GRAY KINGBIRD has never been recorded in the Niagara
Frontier Region.

Three reports from October 2 - at the Batavia Waste Water
Plant, 3 EARED GREBES. In the Iroquois Refuge, between
Cayuga Pool and Feeder Road, 2 SNOW GEESE. And finally on
the 2nd, near the end of the species expected time period, a
female RUBY-T. HUMMINGBIRD in a Silver Creek yard.

YELLOW-B. SAPSUCKERS, AMERICAN PIPITS and RUSTY BLACKBIRDS
were reported at several locations this week. And, October
6, an unexpected BALD EAGLE over Amherst High School.

Dial-a-Bird will be updated Thursday evening, October 13.
Please call in your sightings by noon Thursday. You may
report sightings after the tone. Thank you for calling and
reporting to Dial-a-Bird.
