This Summer is Flying!
We have seen more birds than ever before on the property in Julyfrom ospreys and goldfinches to this great egret, which has been hunting in our native meadow. Thank you to Larry Weaner Landscape Associates and Nelson Byrd Woltz for designing our healthy habitats!

Help us log your sightings at the Jay Estate by downloading the Cornell Lab of Ornithology's eBird app.
