Back from a trip out to the Finger Lakes region of New York with a few bird sightings but not too many as this was not a birding trip. We headed out on Sunday and stayed at the southern end of Seneca Lake for three nights. Most of the time was spent visiting various wineries but I did manage to get out a little on a couple mornings plus made a stop at Sapsucker Woods at Cornell on the way home. Added a few new species to my New York list (Fish Crow, Hermit Thrush, Louisiana Waterthrush and Chestnut sided Warbler) as well as added some new county species for me in the state. My New York list now stands at 144 with at least one species seen in 26 counties.
