Former landfill, that is. Scenes from Shirley Chisholm State Park in winter.

At least two female American Kestrels were hovering in search of prey.

A sunnier day, from across low-tide Hendrix Creek.

    I especially enjoyed your historical information in this post! Long Island has quite a bit of history that I never knew about. I lived in Hewlett and Rockville Centre until going away for college. Many of my high school friends still live on Long Island.

    Great shot of the female kestrel including a deployed alula. That kind of bird physics makes me chuckle at our egotism. It took tens of thousands of years of modern human engineering to come up with a device birds have been growing for millions of years!

    A favorite destination for my kids in summer.
