  of Williamsville in Amherst. First discovered at backyard
  feeder in the village, and re-found later in the day by the
  tennis club building at nearby Amherst State Park. There are
  less than five records of WESTERN TANAGER in the BOS
  archives.

  An obscure find at Forest Lawn in Buffalo - a roosting
  EASTERN WHIP-POOR-WILL on May 6.

  Migration time is now, and the changing weather in the next
  few days may bring more migrants closer to the ground.

  Twenty-three warbler species were reported this week.
  Highlighted by one or two GOLDEN-WING. WARBLERS at Forest
  Lawn. Other warblers ranged from the early migrant PINE
  WARBLER to the late migrant BLACKPOLL WARBLER.

  Also, single RUSTY BLACKBIRDS at Forest Lawn and in the
