This afternoon I drove the length of Dune road and spent a little time at the inlet. It was dead low tide at the inlet and there were a lot of ducks feeding and getting out of the wind on the western side. Most appeared to be red-breasted mergansers, but there were also surf scoters, black scoters and the single numbers of various other winter waterfowl. No eiders observed (though a few seals poppped up).
Dune Road yielded one extremely well hidden Snowy Owl as well as a number of northern harriers include a grey ghost. -- - Luke Instagram: @JrookPhotos <https://www.instagram.com/jrookphotos/?hl=en> Website: Luke Ormand and & JRookPhotos <http://www.lukeormand.zenfolio.com> -- NYSbirds-L List Info: http://www.NortheastBirding.com/NYSbirdsWELCOME.htm http://www.NortheastBirding.com/NYSbirdsRULES.htm http://www.NortheastBirding.com/NYSbirdsSubscribeConfigurationLeave.htm ARCHIVES: 1) http://firstname.lastname@example.org/maillist.html 2) http://www.surfbirds.com/birdingmail/Group/NYSBirds-L 3) http://birding.aba.org/maillist/NY01 Please submit your observations to eBird: http://ebird.org/content/ebird/ --
