I was at Point Lookout today and thought Sy Schiff's explanation was quite sufficient. Never heard the term groin refer to anything but a body part. I would like to add to Mr Schiff's report that I also saw circa a dozen Bonaparte Gulls. Thanks to the other pair of birders who pointed them out to me. I'm headed to the Hamptons again tomorrow for a 3 day weekend of partying. I will probably go birding on Dune Road and will report anything that's considered rare.
