p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · CornCrake Cex crex on Long Island


A Eurasian species that occasionally makes its way to North America...perhaps as an overshoot fall migrant from the continent to the UK. The last time one occurred in New York State was 1963. If you are a birder this is a megatick.

The bird was first found alive on 7 November in Suffolk Co., LI...and then (dead) on the morning of 9 November. My photos from 8 November.

Hi Morris - all those birders who had to wait until the weekend to go look for the bird...and there are many others who would have flown in from all parts of North America to see this Eurasian species - for their life list...all disappointed. Birding can be a crazy sport to some birders - who can see the most species in one year...in a lifetime...in North America. This bird was a rare rare chance to get a "tick" on a check-list...a Eurasian species in the USA. You can't count it on your North American list if you see it in Europe....the last time in NYS was 1963. The last time in the USA was in Pennsylvania a year or so ago - but that one was found when a cat killed it and brought it home.

Anyway, Deborah and I live in the Bronx so we could make a reasonable trip to see it. We are not listers...we are scientists.

Great shot, thanks for sharing the beautiful photo and information. I had read about this bird on the rare bird alert but seeing the photo makes it more exciting.
