Observation details

***Very rare on Cayuga Lake, only my 6th in the Basin and 5th in Tompkins, (although not even an orange dot due to the cooperative 2014 bird). Found earlier by Nick Bayly. On rocks by lighthouse, then flew out over lake and settled to forage on driftwood-covered sandbar just north of the main spit.
