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.
