  Reports of rare and unexpected species, June 11 through June

  On Lake Ontario, June 14, four AMER. WHITE PELICANS feeding
  off Ransomville Road, in the Niagara County Town of Porter.
  The count of four pelicans matches only one previous high
  count in the BOS archives.

  Also at Lake Ontario in Niagara County, June 13, a BLACK-
  BELLIED WHISTLING DUCK still at the mouth of 12 Mile Creek,
  at the west side of Wilson-Tuscarora State Park. Nearby, in
  the Village of Wilson, EURASIAN COLLARED-DOVE continues in
  the harbor area, often at the Boathouse Restaurant.

  June 11, an unexpected BRANT on the east branch of the
  Niagara River at Gratwick Park in North Tonawanda. The BRANT
  appeared healthy, and was feeding with resident MALLARDS.

  Rare in June, a PINE SISKIN this week at a feeder in the
  Orleans County Village of Medina.

  Other reports this week - From the night sky over the
  Central Park neighborhood in Buffalo -  two, late migrant
  SWAINSON'S THRUSHES heard after midnight. Scarce COMMON
  NIGHTHAWKS - two over Central Park and one over East
  Amherst. And at Sunset Beach, on Lake Ontario at Johnson
  Creek, flocks of CEDAR WAXWINGS feeding on over-abundant
  mosquitoes.

  The Bird Report will be updated Thursday evening, June 25.
