As regular CFZ-watchers will know, for some time Corinna has been doing a column for Animals & Men and a regular segment on On The Track... particularly about out-of-place birds and rare vagrants. There seem to be more and more bird stories from all over the world hitting the news these days so, to make room for them all - and to give them all equal and worthy coverage - she has set up this new blog to cover all things feathery and Fortean.

New bird species at Seneca Meadows wetland preserve

Honored in recent years for attracting threatened bird species to its natural preserve, officials at the Seneca Meadows Wetland Preserve confirm the sighting of three new birds.

Two of the birds — the black tern and the golden eagle — appear on the state's list of endangered species. A third species, the redhead, was also confirmed during fauna surveys by wildlife biologist Mike McGraw of Applied Ecological Services.

"It's been a wonderful experience watching the Seneca Meadows Wetlands Preserve develop from a virtual monoculture to a diverse habitat," said Friends of Montezuma member Chuck Gibson. "The number of bird species has more than doubled."
