Mastic Beach wildlife

Egrets little and large, herons (giant blue and small ones that perch in trees), glossy ibis, plovers (piping and otherwise), american oystercatchers, bluejays that are more grey than blue, woodpeckers, mockingbirds, catbirds, starlings that paint the sky, seagulls that sit on lamposts and giggle/cackle at you in the dark, horseshoe crabs, snapping turtles, blue-clawed crabs, ospreys, rumours of bald eagles, smaller raptors, american robins, raccoons!, white-tail deer with mouths full of hostas, black squirrels, grey squirrels, eastern screetch owls...

Reeds that rustle in the breeze and moonrise over the bay.

Would you enjoy living amongst all these?
