This is just a quick post to share two of the latest birds that made it onto my year list after a quick run to Doodletown and to Mine Road on Saturday morning. The Orange County / Rockland County border by the Hudson River, where Bear Mountain State Park, Harriman State Park, and the United States Military Academy all come together has the best variety of woodland breeding birds to be found within an hour of New York City. How good? Well, the two birds below kind of speak for themselves…
