This bird continues this morning at the same spot according to multiple
reports on the NY list.
Parking instructions have been elaborated. Please be careful:
"Parking is technically illegal along the Ocean Parkway, and in the morning
there are many cars traveling to work along it. Many parked cars are bound
to eventually cause the police to chase people away, especially during rush
A close suggested parking spot is nearby Overlook Beach, just east of Cedar
Beach on the ocean (south side) of the parkway. From there it's a 5-10
minute walk east. Also, although the bird tolerated fast moving cars, it
was very skittish if it detected people or cars stopping next to it.
For those not familiar with the area this is about a 15 minute drive east
of the Jones Beach water tower, in Suffolk County."
Good luck if you chase!
