Sunken Meadow Nature Walk Recap
Today was our final Tuesday walk for the fall season. It was bright, crisp and windy. A typical fall day on the north shore of Long Island.
We had fifteen people show up to brave the NW winds on the boardwalk. The whitecaps on the sound hid any seabirds from view. Later on during the walk we had our annual look at Cedar Waxwings feeding on the berries on the bushes and trees.
We see them here every year, it’s a constant I have come to count on over the years. Sunken meadow is a very enjoyable location for a fall walk. We saw our first Buffleheads of the year also. At the end of the walk we had a close flyover Red-tailed Hawk.
See you in March.
2023 GSBAS Annual Dinner: Huge Success!
The weather was slightly rainy and cold and most of our fine feathered friends were nestled in, but our friends at the Great South Bay Audubon Society were flocking together at the Annual Dinner in Bay Shore.
I think that I shall never see a poem as lovely as a tree.
