Northwestern Pennsylvania emerged relatively unscathed from Sandy’s appearance earlier this week, although creeks aren’t necessarily fishable after all of the rain we’ve received since Monday.
What Sandy did leave behind is a bonanza for birders. Birders’ reports to ebird show seabirds and shorebirds that were caught up in Sandy’s heavy winds were dropped like Dorothy and Toto on area waterways.
Surf scoter, black scoter, semipalmated plover, red-necked phalarope and red phalarope were spotted at Woodcock Creek Lake, Crawford County. And a Pomarine jaeger was identified at Clark Island, in Pymatuning State Park. Black scoter and long-tailed duck sightings also were reported at Presque Isle State Park.
Evening grosbeaks also are being seen routinely in Erie, Crawford and Warren counties.
Let us know if you see any uncommon birds in your travels.

Many trails on the Marienville Ranger District were closed as of Friday including the Timberline ATV trail. Crews were clearing district roads that are generally open to the public. Trails that were open were Marienville ATV, Rocky Gap and Willow Creek. Crews were working during the weekend to clear the Timberline trail.
Riders should be more debris than is usual on all trails.
“Trails will be assessed once key roads have been made passable,” according to a news release.
If you’re headed to the forest and need a status update, check with the Marienville or Bradford ranger districts for updates.
The Marienville district office was closed Friday because electric and telephone service were out. Brochures and maps were still available to visitors.
The Bradford district office was operating on a generator. Power was out in the surrounding area heading into the weekend.
Most of the recreation areas and access roads around the reservoir, Jakes Rocks, and Rim Rock had been cleared of downed trees.
