Pine Island, New York
There are several spots for birding on Oil City Road in Pine Island, including Liberty Marsh and the Winding Waters Trail on the 6000-acre Wallkill River National Wildlife Refuge.
The various habitats of the refuge—swamp/marsh, floodplain forest, grassland, shrubland, and, of course, the river—host migrating and breeding waterfowl (29 species), shorebirds, grassland birds, raptors (including Golden Eagles, Bald Eagles, and Broad-wing Hawks), and woodland birds. More than 260 species have been recorded on the refuge. In June 2017, birders were treated to a visiting Black Tern!
