Tweets – it was W E T. We came back looking like drowned rats. We’ve had harder rain before, and we’ve come back wetter, but today still counts as W E T. Luckily, it was neither cold, nor (at least after sunrise) windy. And while it was decidedly NOT birdy, we did pretty well.


Lesser Scaup Lone female in slough – First Of Year
Cooper’s Hawk Probably just 1 adult, male by size, seen twice
Wilson’s Snipe 1 over East Meadow
HERRING GULL 1 adult with gull flock on soccer fields – FOY
Northern Shrike N end of East Meadow
Bewick’s Wren Much singing
Fox Sparrow One singing, several more seen
W. MEADOWLARK 7+, north end of East Meadow – FOY

Both times we saw the COOPER’S HAWK it was sitting perched, and AMERICAN ROBIN alarm whistles clued us in to its presence.

For the day, just 46 species, but that’s not too bad considering. For the year, adding LESC, HERG, and WEME, we’re at 67 species.
