Marine Nature Study Area. 24 Aug I spent the morning in the dry part of the facility, ignoring the marsh although a fully grown CLAPPER RAIL was observed from the parking lot.
A RUBY-THROATED HUMMINGBIRD is hanging around. It appears in the blue salvia along the fence to the west and in the canna lilies off the parking lot. Today it was seen in both spots, but only stayed a few minutes at a time in each place before moving on before returning. Chairs have been conveniently placed at both places, so one can relax while waiting for the hummer to show. The watchers today all had big lenses and most managed satisfactory photos. There were a few YELLOW WARBLERS and AMERICAN REDSTART plus a lone EASTERN WOOD-PEWEE Sy Schiff Sent from Mail for Windows 10 -- NYSbirds-L List Info: http://www.NortheastBirding.com/NYSbirdsWELCOME.htm http://www.NortheastBirding.com/NYSbirdsRULES.htm http://www.NortheastBirding.com/NYSbirdsSubscribeConfigurationLeave.htm ARCHIVES: 1) http://firstname.lastname@example.org/maillist.html 2) http://www.surfbirds.com/birdingmail/Group/NYSBirds-L 3) http://birding.aba.org/maillist/NY01 Please submit your observations to eBird: http://ebird.org/content/ebird/ --
