Saw Mill River Audubon's Woodcock Walk last night at Croton Point Park, led by Charlie Roberto, heard and saw at least five American Woodcock in their display flights. First peent was around 7:20pm.
Another highlight was a big movement of Tree Swallows seen at dusk coming into Croton Bay, estimated at ~1,000. Likely headed for night roost in the nearby phragmites stands. First of spring Osprey fly-over at dusk as well. eBird list here: https://ebird.org/view/checklist/S43962086 Saw Mill River Audubon Monday bird walk this morning at Croton Point Park observed a group of six Eastern Meadowlarks atop the landfill grasslands.
