Little Blue Heron, East Hampton - 29 Mar 2009
An adult LITTLE BLUE HERON, looking distinctly bedraggled and miserable in the drizzle, was on the eastern arm of Hook Pond, East Hampton, Suffolk Co. today. Although widespread in saltmarsh habitat on Long Island during the summer, Little Blue's are fairly scarce on the South Fork, east of Shinnecock Bay. Not much else to report from a quick tour of East Hampton, except for newly arrived Ospreys and Great Egrets in several places and a couple of Turkey Vultures at Napeague.
