  The highlight of reports received May 29 through June 5 was
  from just east of the Niagara Frontier Region - a KIRKLAND'S
  WARBLER at Hamlin Beach State Park on Lake Ontario near
  Rochester. Found on June 1, the KIRKLAND'S WARBLER is one of
  the rarest warblers in North America, with a breeding range
  limited to the State of Michigan; a migrant in New York
  State is an exceptional find.

  Highlights back in the region - June 3, an unexpected,
  female WHITE-WINGED SCOTER at the Batavia Waste Water Plant
  on pond S1.

  Near the end of migration, a WILSON'S WARBLER at Tifft
  Nature Preserve in Buffalo on June 2. Other reports at Tifft
  this week - RED-HEADED WDPKR., YELLOW-B. FLYCATCHER,
  MAGNOLIA WARBLER, CHESTNUT-S. WARBLER, BLACKPOLL WARBLER,
  and a nesting pair of OSPREYS.

  At the Buffalo outer harbor, across from Tifft Nature
  Preserve, a PEREGRINE FALCON and 23 active CLIFF SWALLOW
  nests on the Gallagher Beach grain elevator.

  In the Iroquois Refuge, at Kumpf Marsh, RED-SHOULDERED HAWK,
  2 SANDHILL CRANES, 2 BLACK TERNS, VEERY and SCARLET TANAGER.
  Along the Onondaga Trail off Sour Springs Road - 4 CERULEAN
  WARBLERS and WOOD THRUSH. And, YELLOW-BILLED CUCKOOS at both
  locations.

  BL.-CR. NIGHT-HERONS on the Niagara River - four at the
  Black Rock Canal at Ferry Street in Buffalo, and a single
  BL.-CR. NIGHT-HERON with 2 GREEN HERONS on the West River
  off Grand Island.

  During the Allegany State Park Nature Pilgrimage on June 1,
  2 migrant OLIVE-S. FLYCATCHERS and at the Camp Allegany
  site, a WHITE-EYED VIREO.

  Also this week - BALD EAGLE over Wherle Drive in Amherst. In
  Cheektowaga, SHARP-SH. HAWK mobbed by sparrows and an
  unexpected, reported GRASSHOPPER SPARROW on a Cheektowaga
  property.

  The final BOS meeting of the season will be on Wednesday,
  June 11, at 6 PM at Tifft Nature Preserve in Buffalo. Bring
  your dinner for a brief meeting and hike through the
  preserve.

  The Bird Report will be updated Thursday evening, June 12.
