I am interested in detailed birding advice for Orange County, especially the "black dirt region." I have been to Pine Island and the Liberty Lane area. Apparently Liberty Lane is private property and closed to entry now. Apparently some Sandhill Cranes have been seen recently nearby; also American Golden Plover. I would like to see detailed directions to where they were seen, as well as a sort of "birders guide to the black dirt region." Searching on line with google has not brought up very much. Which dirt roads can one drive on? What areas to avoid?
