On Century Day, May 22, 1999, our group got 129 species exclusively in
Saratoga County from 3:15 AM to 9 PM. Hilites include a Golden-winged
Warbler at the Battlefield; Olive-sided Flycatcher and Mourning Warbler at
Tower Road; Common Snipe courting at Desolation Road; a pair of Am Wigeon
on the Mohawk at Halfmoon (still there on 5/23); a pair of Green-winged
Teal at Ferry Drive; 200 Brant flying over Vischer Ferry at 8:45 PM; Least
Bittern at VF (2 still there on 5/25, one is now much closer); Whip Poor
Wills and Barred Owl at Cold Spring Road, which is being developed; Purple
Martins and 2 Ruddy Ducks on Saratoga Lake.

See it before they saw it.
