Each fall I run a small water drip on the thin barrier beach of Fire Island. Surrounded by salt water and sandy soils, my water pans are the only fresh water migrant passerines encounter on their arduous journeys south. On a good morning after a heavy night flight this thin barrier beach lying along the Atlantic Ocean can trap many migrant songbirds. On some notable days I have had up to 25 Swainsons Thrushes jumping around my water drip.
