Hi all, This morning at Setauket Woods (about three miles east of Stony Brook University), I watched a raven harass an immature GOLDEN EAGLE soaring in beautiful sunshine for a few minutes. This appears to be the first GOEA in Suffolk County in a couple of years, at least on eBird.
At least 4 ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLERS were also in the park. Some photos: https://ebird.org/checklist/S61300773 After moving to Stony Brook in August (to begin a 2-year Master's program studying Antarctic penguins), it has been fun to start exploring Long Island this fall. Looking forward to the next few seasons here ;) Noah Strycker -- 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/ --
