  Highlights of reports received June 19 through June 26 from 
  the Niagara Frontier Region include UPLAND SANDPIPER, 
  NASHVILLE WARBLER, PROTHONOTARY WARBLER, "LAWRENCE'S 
  WARBLER", SEDGE WREN, CLAY-COL. SPARROW and PINE WARBLER. 

  June 22, 2 UPLAND SANDPIPERS were found north of the 
  Iroquois Refuge, in a pasture on the west side of Posson 
  Road, between Fletcher Chaple and East Shelby Roads. 

  In Niagara County, New York State Breeding Bird Atlas 
  observers found a NASHVILLE WARBLER carrying food on Quaker 
  Road in the Town of Hartland. In the 1988 Atlas, NASHVILLE 
  WARBLERS were not found breeding anywhere in Niagara County. 
  Other highlights from Hartland were an unusual CHESTNUT-S. 
  WARBLER, also on Quaker Road, plus SORA, BLACK-BILLED 
  CUCKOO, YELLOW-BILLED CUCKOO, RED-HEADED WDPKR., RED-BELLIED 
  WDPKR., BL.-GR. GNATCATCHER, NORTHERN WATERTHRUSH, CERULEAN 
  WARBLER and ORCHARD ORIOLE. 

  In the Tonawanda Wildlife Management Area, a pair of 
  PROTHONOTARY WARBLERS were reported along the canal to the 
  west of Meadville Road. The pair were about 200 yards past 
  the wooden bridge over the canal. A single male PROTHONOTARY 
  WARBLER had been reported for several weeks at the this 
  location. 

  Along the same road, a breeding "LAWRENCE'S WARBLER" 
  continues to be found, off the west side of Meadville Road, 
  south of houses at Owens Road. Follow the path through the 
  field, then to the wooded trail and a small stream. This 
  "LAWRENCE'S WARBLER" is apparently paired with a female 
  "BREWSTER'S WARBLER"-type BLUE-WINGED WARBLER. And the SEDGE 
  WREN remains at Mallard Overlook on Sour Springs Road in the 
  Iroquois Refuge. 

  CLAY-COL. SPARROWS are still being reported in Cattaraugus 
  County. Two or three were found again in the Town of 
  Ashford, a short distance north of Thomas Corners Road and 
  Bond Road. There were also 2 VESPER SPARROWS just west of 
  the this intersection. Nearby at Keller and Hillicker Roads 
  in the Town of Yorkshire, there were 5 CLAY-COL. SPARROWS 
  with 6 PRAIRIE WARBLERS and a BROAD-WINGED HAWK. MOURNING 
  WARBLERS were among 11 warbler species noted in Ashford. 
  Also in Cattaraugus County, at Bird Swamp on Route 242 in 
  the Town of Machias, BALD EAGLE and 9 VIRGINIA RAILS. 

  Yet another location for PINE WARBLER, in the Town of Elma, 
  a PINE WARBLER has apparently been present the last few 
  years in a yard on West Blood Road. 

  Other reports this week - a good find in the Town of 
  Amherst, 2 SORAS plus a BOBOLINK and 2 EASTERN MEADOWLARKS 
  in the marsh and field at the entrance to the Ellicott Creek 
  Trailway in Williamsville. At Tifft Nature Preserve in 
  Buffalo, D.-CREST. CORMORANT and 3 GREAT EGRETS at Lake 
  Kirsty. And in Buffalo, an adult PEREGRINE FALCON roosting 
  on one of the Richardson Towers next to Buffalo State 
  College, was being harassed by an AMERICAN KESTREL. 

  Dial-a-Bird will be updated Thursday evening, July 3. 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.
