Today, in the small area of open water the lone duck turned out to be a
female Redhead. Viewed from the Islip Pavilion on the west/southwest side
of the lake. This is a first for me for this species at this location.
Additionally, the Eurasian Wigeon is still at the Mill Pond in Sayville.
Also of note a juv. Snow Goose and Cackling Goose were seen on the golf
course of the VA in Northport on Friday. The snow goose continues from the
"Northport Count" a few weeks ago. Birding their can be tricky. The snow
goose was seen like a beacon when driving on Middleville Road. There is a
parking area right when you turn in to get a quick scope view, turned out a
Cackling was mixed in as well.
