My wife and I recently came upon a recovering wetland along Old Post Road in Armonk (opposite the Beehive restaurant). There's a stream and marshes and fields where there once a bowling alley stood (only the foundations and patches of parking lot remain) but are now NYS property.
We went there tonight at about 5:45. A huge chorus of (wood?) frogs, calling grackles and red-winged blackbirds, and then--at around 6:20--at least three and likely more woodcocks calling. We caught a few glimpses from the driveway in, but mostly it was just wonderful to hear them and think of spring.
