2nd Bird Watching Post

birding The Borough of Stone Harbor reported the construction of 2 new bird watching platforms at the point.  The first one is easy to find- follow the driveway path off the 123rd Street parking lot.  It’s basically a nice sun deck positioned on top of a dune- with exceptional views of  the ocean, bay, wetlands, and birds (the official purpose of the site).  

The 2nd, smaller platform is harder to find.  Two choices: from the 1st platform, follow the  crushed shell path west (toward the bridge) and look on your right.  This one sits lower and closer to the marsh.  Or, for a more interesting walk (at low tide only), follow the path at the end of Third Avenue- south of 122nd Street.  The bay side of the point gives you a completely different perspective of the end of the island.  The path will bring you around to the 2nd platform, and then you can continue your walk around to the beach side.

Tip- take advantage of the spring weather for the marsh walk.  Once the warm weather arrives, so will the bugs :)
