After a successful run at the Dickcissel and the Henslow's Sparrow at Shawangunk Grasslands this afternoon, Ann Shaw and I went over to the Bashakill WMA for some evening birding. A Least Bittern was heard calling briefly at the Main Boat Launch and an American Bittern fairly regularly at the Haven Road Causeway. After sunset at least 10 Common Nighthawks were feeding over the causeway. A Pied-billed Grebe was also heard here. As it got dark we heard Whip-poor-will and a distant calling Barred Owl.
