  Highlights of reports received October 4 through October 11  from the 
Niagara Frontier Region include HUMMINGBIRD, PINE  SISKIN, BRANT, 
RED-THROATED LOON and GREAT EGRETS.

  October 10 and 11, from Houghton in the Allegany County Town  of 
Caneadea, a reported RUBY-T. HUMMINGBIRD at a backyard  feeder. Any 
HUMMINGBIRD SPECIES during October should be  carefully identified. 
RUBY-T. HUMMINGBIRDS generally have  migrated from the region in early 
October, while rare, out-
  of-range HUMMINGBIRDS tend to occur in the northeastern  states 
during this time. More details of the observation  would be appreciated.

  At a feeder in the Town of Colden, October 9, the season's  first 
report of PINE SISKIN.

  October 10 on Lake Ontario at Olcott Harbor, BRANT and 2  
RED-THROATED LOONS, plus 4 WHITE-WINGED SCOTERS, 8 COMMON  LOONS, 10

BLACKBIRDS.

  A record October count on the 9th, and maybe a record fall  count - 
112 GREAT EGRETS at the Tonawanda Wildlife  Management Area. Two of the 
EGRETS were banded as nestlings  this summer at the Motor Island 
heronry in the Niagara  River.

  Fall migrants still moving though the region. October 7 at  Goat 
Island, above Niagara Falls - nine warbler species -  ORANGE-CR. 
WARBLER, NASHVILLE WARBLER, MAGNOLIA WARBLER,  CAPE MAY WARBLER, 
BL.-THR. GREEN WARB., PINE WARBLER, PALM  WARBLER and BLACKPOLL 
WARBLER, among a flock of over 200  YELLOW-R. WARBLERS.

  ORANGE-CR. WARBLER also at Amherst State Park on the 10th,  with 
NASHVILLE WARBLER, YELLOW-R. WARBLER and BL.-THR. GREEN  WARB., plus 6 
YELLOW-B. SAPSUCKERS, EASTERN PHOEBE, BLUE-
  HEADED VIREO, 6 BROWN CREEPERS, 8 WINTER WRENS, GOLDEN-CR.  KINGLETS,

  Other reports this week - abundant WHITE-THR. SPARROWS and a  few

SANDPIPER, PECTORAL  SANDPIPER and KILLDEER. In Buffalo, at the Bird 
Island Pier,  BLACK-BELLIED PLOVER, 6 SANDERLINGS and 9 DUNLIN. And,
