Nothing crazy to report from Breezy Point. Save for the breaches on the beach - 
in several places.

I spent a few hours this morning combing the beach and scanning the ocean. The 
highlights were 13-15 Dolphins frolicking around just off the tip.

279 Herring Gulls, 78 Great Black-backed Gulls, 14 Ring-billed Gulls and 27 
Laughing Gulls were the only Gulls close enough to identify clearly with most 
loafing on the beach.

11 Common Terns and 5 Forster's Terns were the only Tern action. 550 
Sanderlings, 13 Semipalmated Plovers, 15 Black-belied Plovers and 37 American 
Oystercatchers were the only shorebirds I noted on the beach.

Land birds were quite scarce. All in all a very non eventful morning at Breezy 
Point in Queens.

Earlier, a quick stop on the south end of the East Pond at Jamaica Bay resulted 
in the continuing Caspian Terns and a few shorebirds - all reported recently. 
No Avocet was seen from that end.


Land birds were all but scarce.

others, rather than to be false, and to incur my own abhorrence." ~ Frederick
