Staten Island’s newest nesting birds!  A pair of Great Blue Herons (Ardea herodias) has taken up residency at Martlings Pond in Clove Lakes Park.  These follow last year’s return of nesting black-and-white warblers after over a century and whip-poor-wills after a twenty year absence on the island’s nesting bird list.
