  the Black Rock Lock. 

  At Allegany State Park in Cattaraugus County, June 21, a 
  nesting YELLOW-THR. WARBLER was discovered in the Red House 
  area. The nest was in a Red Pine, and may be the first time 
  in 20 years that YELLOW-THR. WARBLERS have nested in the 
  region.

  Burns, a total of 7 COMMON RAVENS at three locations, and in 
  the Town of Almond, several each of GOLDEN-CR. KINGLET and 
  WHITE-THR. SPARROW, plus a single RED CROSSBILL. 

  Also in Allegany County this week, a female AMERICAN 
  WOODCOCK with four young, crossing Pingrey Road in the Town 
  of Alfred. 

  From Niagara County, Breeding Bird Atlas work in the Town of 
  Newfane reported a GRASSHOPPER SPARROW on Chestnut Street, 
  just east of Coomer Road, and on Johnson Creek, in Hartland, 
  a WOOD DUCK, with nine young. 
                                                      
  June 19, the BOS field trip to Carlton Hill Multiple Use 
  Area in Wyoming County reported 64 species including 
  MAGNOLIA WARBLER and LA. WATERTHRUSH among 12 warbler 
  species, plus RED-SHOULDERED HAWK, YELLOW-B. SAPSUCKER, 
  ACADIAN FLYCATCHER, WINTER WREN, VEERY, WOOD THRUSH and

  In Erie County, a similar set of species at Shale Creek 
  Preserve in the Town of Boston - YELLOW-B. SAPSUCKER, 4 
  ACADIAN FLYCATCHERS, WINTER WREN, MAGNOLIA WARBLER and LA. 
  WATERTHRUSH. At feeder on Deer Trail in Cheektowaga, an
