I’ve had several recent sightings of Glossy Ibis in the same general area.  
There are fields just to the north of baseball heaven both north and south of 
the LIE. The Suffolk County Farm, sod fields, etc on Yaphank Rd are a stones 
throw to the east (as the ibis flies). I have seen them descending into that 
area. I’m not sure how much standing water is a requirement for foraging. 
Perhaps others could enlighten. A few weeks ago I saw a pair on a seemingly dry 
sod field in Eastport.

| I've been seeing single Glossy Ibis on several occasions in the vicinity of 
Sills Road just south of the LIE (Suffolk County, usually in the late afternoon 
on my way home from work.Yesterday, around 4:30 PM, I saw 4 ibis together.All 
sightings have been of low-flying birds, heading generally due west. 
Yesterday's group of 4 were also low-flying, right over Baseball Heaven, and 
they appeared to be getting ready to set down somewhere.I can possibly see how 
they might be coming from the vicinity of the Carman's River but I can't 
imagine where they're heading. A look at Google satellite doesn't show anyplace 
even remotely damp that would attract them.Any theories?
