I have been out all day birding Queens and with the fog somewhat lifting about
1/2 ago, I began to slowly pick up bird life off the Ocean. Cory's (mostly),
Great, and Sooty Shearwaters. I won't go so far as to call it a flight since
there is no sustained streaming by of birds.
However, there is a bit of feeding frenzy in several areas on the ocean,
visible from Breezy, Riis and Tilden. Birds seemed to be milling around fishing
boats Brooklyn IV and V. This is where I have been picking up the Shearwaters.
I have even managed digiscoped shots of some Tubenoses. How bout dat.
Other highlights included Roseate (5) and Royal Terns (4)
