Southold, Aquebogue: Townsend's Solitaire
Went out east to see the reported Townsend's Solitaire with Snouty and Lisa Pisani. Found the bird, got photos and decided to visit Margaret who had been hosting the 2 Rufous Hummingbirds. After a little wait, the 2 birds appeared. There were numerous songbirds there as well as a Cooper's and Sharp Shinned Hawk that flew in to try to snatch a meal. Also saw a flyover Great Blue Heron - what a terrific yard. We stopped at Alvah's Road and saw about 10 Pipits and some Turkeys in front of someone's house.
