Continuing bird; when first observed the Spoonbill was in NJ but flew close to us to forage with a Glossy Ibis and small flock of Canada Geese. Review of Google Earth puts the bird over the state line and in New York!

Observation details

***** NY sighting in dispute, will review with Orange Co. Mearns birders familiar with the area at a future date for final determination** Continuing bird/close review of Google Earth map shows the bird flew from the NJ section of the marsh into NYS to forage with Glossy Ibis and Canada Geese northwest of "woods" close to impoundment road.
