Apologies to the Upstaters for this local announcement, but there may now
be Pileateds at more than one location. The previously reported bird in
Melville (Suffolk) was seen through yesterday, last seen along Reservoir Rd
just downhill and east of Ridge Rd. This is along the east edge of West
Hills County Park, near Jayne’s Hill, the highest point on LI.
And coming through on eBird from earlier this week, a report of another
Pileated at Twin Lakes Preserve in Wantagh, Nassau county. Reporter was not
exactly sure where in the park he was, but he noted a red building nearby.
Note that this park straddles the Wantagh Parkway - the majority of forest
is on the east side. I will post more information when I have it.
