  An understandably quiet week for reports - February 12 to
  February 19.

  February 19, the PINE WARBLER was still at a feeder in Port
  Weller, Ontario, at 709 Read Road, at the north end of the road at
  Lake Ontario.

  February 17, the previously reported male HARLEQUIN DUCK on
  the upper Niagara River was seen off the north end of
  Central Avenue in Fort Erie, Ontario, opposite the north end
  of Squaw Island.

  Also on the upper river - a HORNED GREBE, February 16, among
  waterfowl off the West Side Rowing Club in Buffalo. SNOWY
  OWL on the Reef Lighthouse above the Peace Bridge. And, BALD
  EAGLES at several locations on the river from the Peace
  Bridge to Grand Island.

  At Tifft Nature Preserve in Buffalo, a RED-W. BLACKBIRD and
  WHITE-THR. SPARROW at the cabin feeders, plus several
  AMERICAN ROBINS in the preserve. At a feeder near the
  Buffalo Airport, a reported FOX SPARROW.

  A flock of 250 SNOW BUNTINGS and 150 HORNED LARKS, plus 2
  EASTERN BLUEBIRDS, attracted to the stored grain at a bunker
  silo at a farm in the Genesee County Town of Alexander.

  There will be a BOS field trip to Dunkirk Harbor on Sunday,
  February 22. Meet at 9 AM at the harbor pier. The harbor
  waters have been intermittently frozen, however a dozen BALD
  EAGLES have been lingering in the area.

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