Joe Giunta and I (Sy Schiff) arrived at Belmont Lake 45 minutes after Doug’s 
post.  There was a continuous outward movement of small flocks of Canada Geese. 
Apparently the Cackling and Ross’s went with them before we came.

We arrived at Point Lookout at low tide to find the areas between the jetties 
filled almost exclusively with Greater Scaup, an estimated 4-5000 of them. 
About 100 BRANT were scattered about. The mixed age and sex COMMON  EIDER group 
was off the 2nd jetty, with some SURF SCOTERS and a WHITE-WINGED SCOTER mixed 
in. No King that we could determine. Of to the inlet. On the way back, we  
found  a pair of HARLEQUIN DUCKS  on the end of the 3rd jetty.  A few HORNED 
GREBES and LONG-TAILED DUCKS were also present. Along the shore; SANDERLING, 
DUNLIN and a single RUDDY TURNSTONE.

No wind, bright sun and a lovely morning walk along the shore.   Sy
