  Highlights of reports received June 23 through June 30 from 
  the Niagara Frontier Region include CATTLE EGRETS, BALD 
  EAGLES, YELLOW-BR. CHAT, SEDGE WREN and UPLAND SANDPIPER. 

  June 27, in Ontario near Rock Point Park, two CATTLE EGRETS 
  were found in the Town of Dunnville, along Regional Road 3, 
  east of Niece Road. A single CATTLE EGRET has been at this 
  location since June 22. Last year at this time, a CATTLE 
  EGRET was at this same site. 

  On the upper Niagara River, June 24, two BALD EAGLE 
  nestlings were observed in the nest at the north end of Navy 
  Island. The nest may be seen with some difficulty, from the 
  west end of Buckhorn Island State Park on Grand Island. Hike 
  the long trail from the parking lot on the east side of the 
  park near Baseline Road, then continue ten yards past the 
  point where the trail turns right toward the water control 
  structure. These eagles represent the first breeding of the 
  species on the Niagara River since 1947. 

  Upriver at the south end of Grand Island, at the Motor 
  Island heronry, 15 GREAT EGRET nestlings and a single D.-
  CREST. CORMORANT nestling on June 28. 

  YELLOW-BR. CHAT, SEDGE WREN and UPLAND SANDPIPER continue to 
  be reported at the Tillman Wildlife Management Area in the 
  Town of Clarence. The CHAT has been found in the early 
  morning, beyond the barrier on Shisler Road; keep in mind 
  that the Shisler Road Extension is not within the Wildlife 
  Management Area. The SEDGE WREN, seen carrying food this 
  week, has been in the vicinity of the short boardwalk in the 
  marsh, and UPLAND SANDPIPERS have been seen from the 
  management area, looking toward the private landfill 
  property. Also at Tillman, PILEATED WOODPECKER and YELLOW-
  THR. VIREO. 

  Details of the AMER. WHITE PELICANS mentioned last week - 
  the two pelicans were seen on June 20, in Silver Creek, not 
  Dunkirk Harbor. 

  Other reports - an unexpected SPOTTED SANDPIPER was heard 
  after dark, flying over Shirley Avenue in Buffalo. Also 
  unexpected, a GREAT BLUE HERON was reported twice this 
  month, flying west, low over Bailey and Grover Cleveland in 
  Eggertsville. Along Sheridan Drive near Colvin Blvd. in 
  Tonawanda, a KILLDEER or a KILLDEER CHICK was described. 
  CEDAR WAXWING on the University of Buffalo Main Street 
  Campus. And, among a small flock of CANADA GEESE, an escaped 
  BARNACLE GOOSE has been seen on Ellicott Creek and the Barge 
  Canal near the Twin Cities Memorial Highway in Tonawanda. 

  Dial-a-Bird will not be updated until Thursday evening, July 
  14. Messages will be checked for any rare reports, and will 
  be noted on the update. You may report sightings after the 
  tone. Thank you for calling and reporting to Dial-a-Bird.
