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.
