Sunken Meadow Walk Recap

Nov 12, 2021 | Nature Walks

It was a beautiful fall morning for a walk. The air was crisp, warm, and bright overlooking Long Island Sound. The wind was moderate out of the North. On the way to the boardwalk we had very good looks at a close up Raven. We saw a nice mix of birds from the boardwalk. There were Common Loons, Black, and White-winged Scoters. There was a small flock of Sanderlings scurrying along the beach.

On the edge of the woodlands we saw a small flock of Cedar Waxwings. The wetlands provided Bufflehead, Mallard, and Black Ducks. Great Blue herons, Yellowlegs, and DC Cormorants were also there. The highlight was seeing a Raven chasing and striking a Red-tailed hawk as they flew over our heads. It was a great day, with some great sightings and great folks to enjoy it with.

One day in December of 2016 I was sitting in my car in a McDonald’s parking lot in Islip eating French fries and there was a gull sitting on the hood of my car looking at me through the windshield.
