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 dropped him down. With chilly weather and northwest winds, we hope he 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 Triangle and then turn left onto a small dirt road that had a pond on the right. Drive to the end of this road and by the gate the bird seems to like. Exact lat long are; 42.393707° N and 75.966075° W Dave Nicosia -- NYSbirds-L List Info: http://www.NortheastBirding.com/NYSbirdsWELCOME.htm http://www.NortheastBirding.com/NYSbirdsRULES.htm http://www.NortheastBirding.com/NYSbirdsSubscribeConfigurationLeave.htm ARCHIVES: 1) http://firstname.lastname@example.org/maillist.html 2) http://www.surfbirds.com/birdingmail/Group/NYSBirds-L 3) http://birding.aba.org/maillist/NY01 Please submit your observations to eBird: http://ebird.org/content/ebird/ --
