July 2  -  I observed the colony on Weseloh Rocks (the  3 islands above the 
Canadian Falls near the stranded Barge) today.  There were 33 Great Egrets 
= 28 nestlings + 5 adults and 10 egret nests. 71  Black = 3 adults and 68 
immature. There were 449 cormorants on the rocks plus 55  nearby. On the 
smaller rocks half way between the brink of the falls and Weseloh  Rocks there 
were 18 resting on the rocks and 30 more hovering above.  In  the Gorge below 
the Canadian Falls 30 yards down stream from the old generating  buldg. was 
a Common Loon near the Canadian shore.  
In Wheatfield, New York, at the north end of Liberty Road there was the  
Osprey nest with an Adult and two nestlings.  Around the nearby  buildings 12 
Cliff swallows + 29 nests.
