RFI NY targets

I'm hoping to finally visit the eastern USA in August. Just a 3 week trip, with little planned yet, but will be hiring a car and travelling with partner and 5 year old.

As we'll be arriving in New York, I'd like some advice on best sites in August for some of the birds I hope to see, notably Piping Plover, American Woodcock, Seaside Sparrow, and Saltmarsh Sparrow. Any advice welcome, and the nearer to the airport the better.

Thanks and kind regards, Larry Sweetland

You would be better coming here in late May for Piping Plover, Seaside Sparrow, and Saltmarsh Sparrow - all nest locally...Piping Plover in Brooklyn-Queens along the ocean beaches; and Seaside and Saltmarsh at Oceanside in Nassau Co.; while Saltmarsh breeds at Pelham Bay Park in the Bronx and also Jamaica Bay (Queens) - and likely more salt marsh parks of NYC...Seaside used to breed in NYC but we lost that bird by the 1970s. Perhaps somewhere on Staten Island it still breeds...
