To say this years bird count went well is an understatement.
A Purple Martin is nesting in the bird house by the pond on number 8.
It is the first time in over 40 years that Purple Martins have been seen
nesting in Rockland Country. A special thanks to all who participated.
Our very own Mr. Sean Trayner, Mr. John Bradley
and Mr. Drew Ciganek who is an avid birder and local resident of
Piermont. Without Drew's help we would not have identified all
