Massapequa Preserve

I was at Massapequa Preserve Saturday around the parking lot and pond by Pittsburgh Avenue.  Song Sparrows, Cardinals and Red Wing Blackbirds were singing so hopefully that's a good sign that Spring is on the way.  Also saw Common Grackles, Blue Jays, Chickadees, Downy Woodpecker, Crows, and a Catbird (probably overwintering)

On the pond, there were mostly Mallards and Ringed Billed Gulls.  There were also a few Mute Swans, Black Ducks, Canada Geese and an American Wigeon.  A nice surprise were 4 Common Mergansers - a drake and 3 females.
