JFK Wildlife Sanctuary, Jones Beach Coast Station
What seemed to be a lackluster day with Snouty changed when we visited the JFK Wildlife Sanctuary where we saw a Great Blue Heron and some Black Ducks...when looking at the heron, we noticed a Bittern nearby. The Bittern was skittish but we did get some "just ok" looks at it. At the Jones Beach Coast Guard grassy area we found a Snow Bunting and Lapland Longspur mixed in with a flock of Horned Larks.
