  Highlights of reports received June 3 through June 17 from 
  the Niagara Frontier Region include SCISSOR-T. FLYCATCHER, 
  KENTUCKY WARBLER, YELLOW-THR. WARBLER, PROTHONOTARY WARBLER, 
  SEDGE WREN and PINE SISKIN. 

  The Dial-a-Bird system was out of order for about a week, 
  apologies to anyone who may have left a message that was 
  deleted during this time. 

  In the Town of Hamburg, the evening of June 7, a SCISSOR-T. 
  FLYCATCHER was briefly observed at the soccer fields on 
  Lakeview Avenue, near the abandoned Nike Base. The 
  flycatcher flew off and was not relocated. There are just 
  two previous records of SCISSOR-T. FLYCATCHER in the BOS 
  archives; one in late May, the other early June. 

  During the first weekend in June, 20 warbler species and 6 
  flycatcher species were reported at Allegany State Park. The 
  Red House area of the park produced two rare warblers - June 
  3, a KENTUCKY WARBLER, on the McIntosh Trail near cabin 11, 
  and June 6 and 7, a YELLOW-THR. WARBLER, near the 
  administration building and opposite of the McIntosh Trail 
  parking lot. 

  Also at Allegany State Park, on the Wolf Run hiking loop, 7 
  NORTHERN PARULAS, PINE WARBLER, a pair of PRAIRIE WARBLERS, 
  5 CERULEAN WARBLERS, BL. AND W. WARBLER and LA. WATERTHRUSH, 
  plus ACADIAN FLYCATCHER and SWAINSON'S THRUSH. 

  In the Iroquois Refuge and Tonawanda Wildlife Management 
  Area, PROTHONOTARY WARBLERS were reported recently along 
  Sour Springs Road, a good distance from the bridge, and 
  along the Feeder Canal west of Meadville Road. A SEDGE WREN 
  has also been residing in the Tonawanda Area, on Bartel 
  Road, at the edge of the Wood Marsh dike. Also in the areas, 
  at Cayuga Pool, PIED-BILLED GREBE, 9 AMERICAN COOTS and 3 
  BLACK TERNS. A RED-BR. MERGANSER at a Route 77 overlook, and 
  another BLACK TERN in the Tonawanda Area. 

  PINE SISKINS, generally rare in the summer months, were 
  reported twice this week. Five at a feeder in a yard in East 
  Aurora, and 1 or 2 PINE SISKINS were among 78 species found 
  during breeding bird atlas work along Route 83 in the Town 
  of Cherry Creek in Chautauqua County. 

  Another good breeding bird report from Chautauqua County - a 
  WHITE-EYED VIREO at a nest with eggs on the property of the 
  Roger Tory Peterson Institute in Jamestown. 

  In the City of Buffalo, 2 fledged PEREGRINE FALCONS were 
  around the nest box on the Statler Building, and 2 CLIFF 
  SWALLOWS at the Peace Bridge. 

  And, the monthly census at Sinking Ponds in East Aurora 
  reported 47 species including VIRGINIA RAIL, CAROLINA WREN, 
  EASTERN BLUEBIRD, WOOD THRUSH, WARBLING VIREO, YELLOW 
  WARBLER, AMERICAN REDSTART, COMMON YELLOWTHROAT and HOODED 
  WARBLER. 

  Dial-a-Bird will be updated Thursday evening, June 24. 
  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.
