I walked some town and county open space properties on either side of Mill Rd in Yaphank today. The northern side Is a successional cedar forest and aside from ticks didn’t seem to hold much activity other than chipping sparrows and a surprise flyover by a glossy ibis. There was at least one indigo bunting but I suspect many more given size of property and habitat.
The south side is typical pine oak forest and held the expected species including a few great views of oven birds. I also stumbled upon a female turkey and her young poults. - Luke -- 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/ --
