This morning I birded the Bashakill briefly after taking care of some business. I found a small flock of Cedar Waxwings at the Deli Fields. While birding there, I heard from a couple of friends, Rob Stone and Bruce Nott about great birds in Orange County. I decided to head down there and see what I could find. I met Bruce and Linda Scrima there. We were able to view approximately 5000 Snow Geese, searching for two Ross’s Geese that Rob and Linda had seen earlier. We never found them, but there were many geese to search through. Also seen as I traveled the area, hundreds of Horned Lark, twenty Snow Bunting and five LAPLAND LONGSPUR! An American Kestrel was the only falcon. The only other raptors were Northern Harriers and Red-tailed Hawks. Good birding!
