  Highlights of reports from late November

  Region.

  November 18, a rare, female, TUFTED DUCK was
  found at the source of the Niagara River at the
  far end of the Bird Island Pier, viewed from
  LaSalle Park in Buffalo. The TUFTED DUCK was
  still present on December 10.

  In addition to the TUFTED DUCK on the Buffalo
  waterfront - three SNOWY OWLS on the offshore
  breakwalls and structures, several LITTLE GULLS
  along Unity Island, and a DUNLIN at the new
  mudflats at the north end of Unity Island.

  November 23, a rarely reported PINE GROSBEAK in
  the Niagara County Village of Wilson. A female
  of the species was feeding in a fruit tree with
  AMERICAN ROBINS at Shore Drive.

  EVENING GROSBEAKS, seemingly absent for a
  generation, have been reported in the Southern
  Tier Counties - 10, and then 20, EVENING
  GROSBEAKS at a feeder in the Cattaraugus County
  Town of Ashford, and eight EVENING GROSBEAKS in
  the Chautauqua County Town of Arkwright.

  November 18 at Rock Point Provincial Park in
  Ontario, a rare November record of AMERICAN
  REDSTART, with ORANGE-CR. WARBLER and several
  YELLOW-R. WARBLERS, plus 10 RUBY-CR. KINGLETS,
  AMERICAN PIPIT, SNOW BUNTING, and a PEREGRINE
  FALCON on Mohawk Island.

  On Foss Road in Orleans County, SNOWY OWL, 100
  AMERICAN ROBINS, 200 SNOW BUNTINGS and two
  BLACK VULTURES feeding with six TURKEY

  residences to the west, in the Village of
  Lewiston.

  At Niagara Falls, December 9, two HARLEQUIN
  DUCKS off the Three Sisters Islands on Goat
  Island.

  Other reports - SNOWY OWL on the Point Breeze
  pier at Oak Orchard Creek and Lake Ontario.
