Common Raven

The Common Raven is a new species for me (and a new breeding species for Suffolk County - at least in the last few decades, though it's entirely possible no one knew about them) which is always nice to get, especially when it's in your "backyard" and as easy as driving by a big water tower and looking up.  I would have much preferred the bird to be closer but maybe in the future I'll get a better chance.  Anyway, nothing terribly exciting but this just goes to show that a "rare" bird can turn up literally anywhere, anytime.

If you are interested in the birds that breed in NY and where abouts they breed, check out this incredibly informative book: The Second Atlas of Breeding Birds in New York State
