Massapequa Preserve

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.

Also saw my FOS Catbird, Chipping Sparrows, numerous Red Wing Blackbirds and Grackles.
