  Cold weather during the week of April 18 through April 25 
  slowed migration in the Niagara Frontier Region, but the 
  pace will change quickly when the weather warms up. 

  Five warbler species were reported this week. Highlighted by 
  early YELLOW WARBLERS at two locations - April 20 at Sinking 
  Ponds in East Aurora and April 21 at Tifft Nature Preserve 
  in Buffalo. Other warblers were YELLOW-R. WARBLER, PINE 
  WARBLER, PALM WARBLER and NORTHERN WATERTHRUSH. There were 2 
  PINE WARBLERS reported at Goat Island in Niagara Falls, 
  along with CAROLINA WREN, RUBY-CR. KINGLET, BL.-GR. 
  GNATCATCHER, HERMIT THRUSH, BROWN THRASHER and WHITE-THR. 
  SPARROW. The NORTHERN WATERTHRUSH was at Tifft Nature 
  Preserve with AMERICAN BITTERN, GREEN HERON, BANK SWALLOW, 
  CAROLINA WREN, HOUSE WREN, WINTER WREN, RUBY-CR. KINGLET,

  The PEREGRINE FALCONS in downtown Buffalo have four eggs in 
  their nest on the Statler Building. One of the PEREGRINES is 
  often seen on the southwest corner of the Liberty Building, 
  seen from Court and Pearl Streets. 

  Other reports this week - a single BUFFLEHEAD on Como Lake 
  in Lancaster, and BARN SWALLOWS have returned to a nest site 
  on Three Rod Road in Alden.
