October 18 - Jones Beach & Orchard Beach

This morning at Jones Beach we saw a few woodpecker species in the Downy, Flicker, Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker, Red-Bellied, and Red-Headed Woodpecker.  We had some latish warblers in Palm, Magnolia, and Yellow-Breasted Chat.

Other goodies were Clay-colored Sparrow, Field Sparrow, Lincoln's Sparrow, and Lark Sparrow, and Baltimore Oriole.

At Orchard Beach we checked for Sparrows and I was able to add to my list of New York State Birds in the Nelson's Sparrow !!
