  Region include CLAY-COL. SPARROW, PRAIRIE WARBLER, WHITE-
  THR. SPARROW and BALD EAGLES. 

  From Allegany County this week, a report that two male CLAY-
  COL. SPARROWS have been singing at a traditional breeding 
  location, the pine plantation on Pingrey Road in the Town of 
  Andover. The plantation is private property, but in past 
  years, the sparrows could be heard and seen from the road. 
  In addition, on Pingrey Road, VESPER SPARROW and GRASSHOPPER 
  SPARROW. Elsewhere in Allegany County, PRAIRIE WARBLER at 15 
  locations and at Foster Lake, five singing WHITE-THR. 
  SPARROWS. 

  In the Lake Ontario Plains, BALD EAGLES at two locations 
  this week. An adult at the Somerset Power Plant, and a 
  subadult BALD EAGLE at Shadigee in the Town of Yates along 
  with five TURKEY VULTURES. Also in Yates, fledged YELLOW 
  WARBLERS at four locations. 

  Also reported this week - SCARLET TANAGER on Cole Road in 
  Orchard Park. And a reminder to watch for GREAT EGRETS 
  dispersing from the Motor Island heronry. Nestling egrets 
  were marked with red bands on their upper legs.  

  Dial-a-Bird will be updated Thursday evening, July 25. 
  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.
