I took my daughter along to Massapequa Preserve by the Sunrise Highway lake to investigate a nest I saw recently - turned out to be an active nest for a pair of Warbling Vireos. We also saw about 5 terns and a Baltimore Oriole. I returned Sunday evening and saw a Great Crested Flycatcher and a Hummingbird feeding at a yellow iris. This was the second time I recently found both species so perhaps the preserve might prove to be a reliable area to find these birds. I heard a weird call/ song to the south of the pond - sounded like a type of game bird but could not locate anything.
