Team Notes

Participants: Jody Groshek, Mark Johnson, Lisa Chapman, Pauline Farmer, John Fedak

Weather: Sunny 70 degrees, no early fog

Location: Hamlin Lake, Smethport, Pa.

Time At Location: 6:30am-5:45pm

Notes:
We were hoping the previously spotted Snow Goose would appear and it did not disappoint. Good thermals gave us varied raptors in good numbers. Warblers were scarce and other easy birds alluded us. Three red-breasted nuthatches seen at one time and a Pied-billed Grebe was another treat.

Anecdotes:
Club member Len Groshek is also a Wildlife Conservation officer and was working today but phoned in to say our Snow Goose was seen feeding in a nearby cornfield with other Canadas and would probably be arriving shortly. About fifteen minutes later all arrived.
