  AMERICAN AVOCETS were the highlight of reports received July
  18 through July 25, plus a late report of a POMARINE JAEGER.

  Back on July 11, the surprise of the summer, an adult
  POMARINE JAEGER, photographed in New York waters on Lake
  Erie, about three miles off Buffalo's outer harbor.
  Historically, a POMARINE JAEGER specimen was collected from
  Allegany State Park in June 1968, and a PARASITIC JAEGER was
  observed on the Buffalo waterfront 21 years ago in July.

  July 18, on the Lake Erie shore at  Woodlawn Beach State
  Park in Hamburg, two separate reports of 3 AMERICAN AVOCETS.

  Southbound shorebirds increase as August approaches. From
  Cayuga Pool and Kumpf Marsh in the Iroquois Refuge, and
  flooded fields on nearby Griswold Road in Royalton, at least
  ten shorebird species included SEMIPALMATED PLOVER, SOLITARY
  SANDPIPER, PECTORAL SANDPIPER and STILT SANDPIPER.

  Also in the Iroquois Refuge, up to 15 BLACK TERNS, including
  juveniles, at Cayuga Pool, and 3 ACADIAN FLYCATCHERS
  continue along the Onondaga Trail. In the Tonawanda Wildlife
  Management Area, five OSPREY nests have yielded seven
  nestlings and fledges.

  Also this week - in Chautauqua County, MERLINS have nested
  this summer on the grounds of the Chautauqua Institute. An
  AMERICAN BITTERN has been feeding in a backyard pond on Ruie
  Road in North Tonawanda. Also in North Tonawanda, 63 CLIFF
  SWALLOW nests on the Taylor Street bridge to Tonawanda
  Island. And, several reports of COOPER'S HAWK and SHARP-SH.
  HAWK.

  The Bird Report will be updated Thursday evening, August 1.
  Please call in your sightings by noon Thursday. You may
  report sightings after the tone. Thank you for calling and
  reporting.
