The last several days have continued to be very active. Lots of birds and birders have been out around the county. Some of the best hotspots since Thursday have been, Kiamesha Lake, Morningside Park, Neversink Reservoir and Swan Lake. Common Loons have been abundant with a high of 22 seen Friday. Long-tailed Duck and Ruddy Duck have been seen at Neversink Reservoir and Swan Lake. Red-breasted Mergansers have been found at the Bashakill, Kiamesha Lake and Morningside Park. Double-crested Cormorants have been in good numbers at Morningside. The bird of the last couple of days comes from Scotty Baldinger. He found three RED-NECKED GREBE on Morningside Park yesterday along with two Horned Grebe. Pied-billed Grebe have numbered at least four at the Bashakill the last several days too, making grebes overall one of the highlights of the week. Passerines can’t be forgotten either. Pine and Palm Warblers, Blue-gray Gnatcatchers, Brown Thrasher and an abundance of both kinglets have all arrived. Ducks at the Bashakill that have continued include Northern Shoveler, American Wigeon, Blue-winged Teal and Gadwall. Today, with warmer temps and southern winds should bring in some more good birds.
