Massapequa Preserve

I was at Massapequa Preserve yesterday from 4:30-7:30pm, walked from Sunrise Highway North to about Jerusalem Ave.  Catbirds...everywhere.  Besides that, there were about 8 Common Terns at the lake by Brady Park...usually the preserve will have one or two on each lake during the summer.  Also by Brady Park, a Warbling Vireo was defending it's nest from anything that got near...mostly Red Winged Blackbirds and Grackles.  There's a continuing resident mix of domestic ducks on the lake -one red-brown Muscovy and some domesic Mallards/ possible hybrids.

The rest of the preserve was uneventful except the west path...heard a singing Wood Thrush (self explanatory), saw a Great Crested Flycatcher and an Eastern Wood Pewee.  Only warbler I saw were Yellow, which are numerous at the preserve.  Note: mosquitoes were awful on the smaller paths
