A juvenile Roseate Spoonbill is currently visible at Wallkill River NWR’s Liberty Marsh off Oil City Road, where it has been reported for several days. The New York/New Jersey border runs directly through the wetlands. So far it seems that the bird has remained on, and is only visible from, the Jersey side of the loop trail. I’m guessing that the perceived “noncountability” of this individual for NY state listers is a contributing factor in its absence from the listserv. All the same, I’m sure there are plenty of people who might be interested in chasing a local occurrence of this species. It may yet decide to check out the northern portion of the marsh, too.
