June Birding on (and off) Long Island
A few random birding thoughts from the early Summer I don't really do a lot of birding in the Summer.  Instead of standing in mud looking at shorebirds and being bitten by vicious flies, I tend to prefer floating around in my pool drinking Caipirinhas.   Ca...

A Long Drive to Dip a Gray Kingbird A few weeks ago, a Loggerhead Shrike was found in Western New York.  I want to see a Loggerhead Shrike in New York State but Western New York is a long way from the City, about 5 hours drive each way.  So I dithered and p...

Not so Upland Sandpiper
A Strange Visitor to the Barrier Beaches .... So earlier this week, I happened upon a Facebook message chain where a very frustrated Tim Healy was lamenting dipping an Upland Sandpiper.  Guessing that the bird might be local on Long Island I chipped in and ...

The Week of Rain
Peak Migration around New York City - Week 2 Wednesday, May 4 - Central Park It rained all day Monday and Tuesday and persistent North winds kept migration on hold.  I wasn't expecting much more in terms of migration on Wednesday but at least the weather fo...

Boreal Birds and Poutine
A quick run North to add some "Boreal" Species to the Year-List I'm at my best as a birder when I plan, and at my worst when I don't.  So this weekend, being very much unplanned, produced some very mixed results bird-wise. With no real plans for the Easter ...
