Long Island - Early January Updates

Normally each time I post I'll list the locations but since I was all over Long Island I'll make a generalization showing the recent sightings.  Highlights for me were some "lifers" including American Bittern, Nashville and Orange Crowned Warblers, Eurasian Teal and Blue morph Snow Goose.  I got a photo of the Barnacle Goose from the side.  Some things not photographed but worth mentioning were 2 Hermit Thrushes seen and chirping to each other, Great Horned and Screech Owls were heard.  Many duck species were seen including a pair of Mergansers.
