Saw Mill River Audubon's Woodcock Walk last night at Croton Point Park,
led by Charlie Roberto, heard and saw at least five American Woodcock in
their display flights. First peent was around 7:20pm.

Another highlight was a big movement of Tree Swallows seen at dusk coming
into Croton Bay, estimated at ~1,000. Likely headed for night roost in the
nearby phragmites stands.

First of spring Osprey fly-over at dusk as well. eBird list here:
