Just north of Exit 69 on the Long Island Expressway there are several rows of 
compost piles along the east side of the road. The puddles that form between 
those piles are attractive to Glossy Ibis- I’ve seen as many as 30 feeding in 
the puddles and on the compost piles there.  It seems like a spot that 
shorebirds might use as well, but so far I’ve only seen the occasional 
yellowlegs feeding there.
