After realizing that Jones Beach West End had zero visibility, I went to Massapequa Preserve starting at Linden Street heading south to the pond parellel to Doris Place and back. Saw 2 or 3 American Woodcocks right away. There were lots of Song Sparrows, Robins, a handful of Phoebes, and a Yellow Bellied Sapsucker and Fox Sparrow were nice to see. The biggest surprise were the Golden Crowned Kinglets - they were by far the most numerous bird. A conservative estimate was at least 150 in a 2 hour period.
