  counted on Lake Ontario off Golden Hill State Park in the 
  Town of Somerset, along with 2 WHITE-WINGED SCOTERS. 
  September 11, a single RED-NECKED PHALAROPE was at Tifft 
  Nature Preserve in Buffalo, very close to the north viewing 
  blind. 

  From Grand Island, a late report from September 4 noted 
  three interesting waterfowl records. At Sunken or Grass 
  Island, off Buckhorn Island State Park, a RING-NECKED DUCK, 
  about two weeks early, a CANVASBACK, almost a month early, 
  and a record late date for breeding PIED-BILLED GREBES, as 
  indicated by a young PIED-BILLED GREBE being fed by an 
  adult. 

  Also on Grand Island, a FORSTER'S TERN, September 6, on the 
  beach at Beaver Island State Park. 

  Other reports this week - At least one EARED GREBE still at 
  the Batavia Waste Water Plant. Immature PEREGRINE FALCON at 
  Bidwell Parkway in Buffalo. EASTERN SCREECH-OWL calling in a 
  North Tonawanda yard on Ruie Road, across from the Klydel
