TRICOLORED & LITTLE BLUE HERONS continue in Accabonac Harbor - 18 April 2009
Single TRICOLORED and LITTLE BLUE HERONS continue in Accabonac Harbor, East Hampton, Suffolk Co., with the Tricolored sunning itself on the marsh across from the end of Landing Lane (Springs Village) and the Little Blue feeding on the edge of the marsh across the from the mid-way point on Gerard Drive. A WILSON'S SNIPE was also in the marsh at Landing Lane. No sign of the first-summer Black-headed Gull seen as recently as Wednesday. PINE SISKINS continue at our thistle feeder but otherwise there is little evidence of recent landbird migration, at least not this far out on the island. With lingering siskins and White-winged Crossbills all over the region it is going to fun seeing how many actually stay to nest.
