At one time, a great variety of waterfowl wintered on Long Island; now, due to habitat loss, food scarcity, and the introduction of nonnative species of water birds, our wintering population of waterfowl is slowly diminishing. To assess this situation and record the number of overwintering waterfowl, the New York State Ornithological Association (NYSOA) sponsors an annual waterfowl count throughout the state. If you are an experienced or intermediate birder, we would be delighted to have you join us; to do so, call count leader Frank Quevedo at 631.537.9735 for detailed information.
