[nysbirds-l] Marine Nature Study Area

2019-10-19 Thread Sy Schiff
   First really cold day. A change for land birds. The most interesting was 
a WHITE-EYED VIREO that allowed for a quick photo. Other first of the season at 
this place were RUBY and GOLDEN-CROWNED KINGLETS. A HERMIT THRUSH continues. 
Lots of Yellow-rumped Warblers and a dozen Swamp Sparrows along the trails.
   The marshes had Both Yellowlegs, both Egrets, a Great Blue Heron, a 
flyover Black-crowned Night-Heron and little else. The resident Belted 
Kingfisher was reported. Brant are in and Cormorants continue to fly over.

[nysbirds-l] Say’s Phoebe, morning flight - Jones Beach, Nassau County

2019-10-19 Thread Timothy Healy
An impressive flight following last night’s NW winds included a flyby 
observation of Say’s Phoebe near the Jones Beach Coast Guard Station boat basin 
this morning. I cannot say whether the bird continued on or put down somewhere 
nearby; I followed up its flight and spent some time searching but could not 
refind it. Notes from the field for this fleeting encounter are included in my 
eBird checklist. Other birds of interest included Clay-colored Sparrow, 
Dickcissel, Red-headed Woodpecker, and over 1,000 Yellow-rumps. Marbled Godwits 
and Caspian Terns continue on the spit.
