Observation details

*excellent count for Suffolk Co. Personal high count and likely high count for Long Island. This count represents a relatively short search for NSWO and given the expanse of habitat present, it is likely that a more dedicated effort would produce additional birds. Moderate playback used and, when used, birds very responsive. Vocalizations included typical wails, singing and bill snaps. At first location, 3 birds present. Singing, and wails heard simultaneously. Also, of note, NSWO seem to give consistent and unique wail calls per each bird. Bird 4 (approx 0.25-0.4 m away) gave bill snaps in response to whistled imitation to NSWO song and dive-bombed observers. Bird 5 was seen perched and also observed singing in flight with much self esteem. Bird 6 only heard distantly (opposite direction from birds 1-4) while Bird #5 being observed. Most vocalizations recorded.
