Built by a neighbor, a few years ago, the box sits in the phragmites.
I've never actually seen a duck in the nesting box but we do have plenty of ducks on the river.
It is my understanding that this is built specifically for Wood Ducks, and we mainly see Mallards here.
At this time of year, the Buffleheads come to visit, migrating through Long Island, and away from the windy Great South Bay.

Just a walk through the arboretum, on a beautiful autumn day.
The leaves are not as vibrant this year due to hurricane Irene and the heavy ice storm last week.
Many trees are bare and any leaves on the trees are just a drab brown color.
In spite of the lack of color, it does have its beauty!

“A DUTCH CHRISTMAS AT MEADOW CROFT”
Bayport Heritage Association invites all local-area residents to their DUTCH CHRISTMAS AT MEADOW CROFT, which will be held on Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 3rd, and 4th, 2011, at the Meadow Croft estate located at 299 Middle Road at Brown’s River on the Bayport Sayville border.
Meadow Croft is the 1891 estate of John E. Roosevelt and family. The Roosevelts were, of course, Dutch by ancestry. The house will be decorated in a Victorian/Edwardian motif with beautiful wreaths, poinsettias and greenery magnificently reminiscent of a hundred years ago and tied in with a Dutch flavor.
Musical selections will be played on the original Roosevelt grand piano filling the house with the music of the season.
Upstairs, special exhibits, including electric trains, teddy bears, dolls, vintage clothing, woodcarvings, old-time toys, and Christmas specialties, will be on display for public enjoyment.
Hot chocolate and cookies will add to the coziness of the occasion. St. Nicholas, the Dutch version of Santa Claus, will be there to look up individual children’s names in his ledger and he’ll find out who’s been ‘naughty and nice’ in 2011.
This Dutch Christmas at Meadow Croft is open from noon to 4 PM both days. Admission is only $5 for adults and $3 for seniors & children age 4-12. Not suitable for children under 4 years of age.
All the decorations will be raffled off.

The dahlia garden at the Cutting Arboretum in Oakdale is at its peak.
Take a ride over there and view the beautiful dahlias! There are also lots of bees but don't worry.
They won't be interested in you with so many colorful flowers available!

There is something so different about the air once Labor Day arrives.
The sky has less haze and more fluffy clouds.
The coolness in the air has that almost autumn feel.
It is one of the best times on Long Island!

Hope you all recover soon!
The flood water has receded but many of you are without power.
In this photo, taken on Sunday, the water pours out of the river onto a residential street.

One of the lighthouses on our Lighthouse Cruise out of Greenport.
One of the engineers of Race Rock Lighthouse, Captain Thomas Albertson Scott, also built the seawall at Governors Island and the foundation for the Statue of Liberty.
It was a great cruise!

The weather has been beautiful.
The ocean waves have been calm and the water warm.
It's been perfect beach weather, but last night's storm gave us a reality check.
Enjoy the summer while you can!

Swim in the green...
Almost every year people drown in the ocean off Fire Island. Sometimes the waves and rip-currents are too strong and people aren't prepared. There are no lifeguards in some areas. Swim in the green flagged areas!
