This morning Dan Watkins and Rich Youket found a GLOSSY IBIS at Upper Lisle
County Park down the truck road next to a red gate that has a STOP sign on
it. The bird likes to forage there and often will take off but keeps coming
back to the same spot. This is a rare bird for Broome as we get this
species maybe once every 2-5 years. Last night's strong south winds likely

sticks around a couple days. The bird is in beautiful breeding plumage.

Best way to get there is to cross a rusty bridge from Rte 26 Town of

Exact lat long are;    42.393707° N and  75.966075° W
