On Tuesday morning I took advantage of one of the rare cloud free mornings of the spring and took a flight over Carmans River and Squassux Landing in Brookhaven.

Carmans River is one of the four largest rivers on Long Island and totally generated by groundwater.  Flowing through Yaphank, Southaven Park and Wertheim Wildlife Refuge, it is one of the most important estuaries feeding into the Great South Bay.
