For your information, here is a message Bill Watson of Buffalo put out on NYSBirds and Genessee Birds, about the predicted track of Hurricane Katrina, and the birds it might bring to the Fort Erie Niagara area.  No doubt, many will be there looking for storm related rarities.

Over the last three days the predicted track of the eye Herricane Katrina has changed from over the east end of Lake Erie to over the west end of Lake Erie to over over Western New York.  First there will be a general fallout of rarities like phaleropes and jagers caused by the overcast conditions, then Herricane birds may first show up at places like Chatauqua Lake, Finger Lakes, or even Batavia WWTP. After the Herricane has passed strong west winds (especially if it goes a little est of it prediced path) will favor Woodlawn Beach and Athol Springs south of Buffalo and Waverly Beach in Fort Erie, Ontario for hurricane eye rarities. After that, north winds after it passes (especially if it passes west of its predicted path) will favor the south shore of Lake Ontario and the south end of Finger Lakes.

Check out the path:



Good Luck,
Bill Watson
