Chris Takacs and Ray Duffy boat report seeing/hearing a Boat-tailed Grackle yesterday. Chris had his bird at his house in Lyndhurst, off Schuyler Ave. Ray had his bird near Laurel Hill County Park in Secaucus.
This bird is ubiquitous in Florida, and we are told it may nest on Long Island, but it's it's a great bird, so be on the lookout. (Thanks, guys!)
Here's a link to Chris' photo.
Here is a link to Ray's video. Ray also had an Eastern Meadowlark.
