changed locations a little bit this morning. He was on the New York side between Sportsmans Pier and Anglers Pier around 7:15am. The easiest way to get to anglers pier(Lighthouse Point Marina) and Sportsmens pier is to go through the village of Rouses Point to the end of Rt11,turn right on to Bridge Rd.(bridge to Vermont) then turn right on to Montgomery St.--. Lighthouse Point Marina is just past Barcombs Marina and Sportsmans Pier is a couple of hundred feet past Lighthouse Point Marina.

I'm just curious -- why are bird sightings from New York being reported on a blog of Quebec bird sightings?

Bird Sightings from BPQ said...

The sightings from New York are being posted because the bird is rare and not to far away. I know people from the Montreal area, that have already gone down to see it. One person is driving down from Toronto this week-end to see it. It was also posted on Ornitho-QC.
