I completely agree that Sy’s explanation was totally fine. My point was that we 
should all adopt his numbering system starting west and going east. The 
terminology is just a technical nit.

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.

Keep it real

Thank you, Sy, for being the first to explain exactly what is meant by the 4th 
(or any other) jetty.  I am ok with Sy’s terminology, but technically the inlet 
jetty is the only jetty at Pt. Lookout, the other 4 being groins.  And for 
those of you who may be confused visiting there after a year’s hiatus, there 
were traditionally only 2 groins.  Last year the Army Corps build two new ones.

Subject: [nysbirds-l] Point Lookout

After a visit to Hempstead Lake SP, Joe Giunta, Debbie Martin and I (Sy Schiff) 
went looking for the KING EIDERS. It was with a  score of COMMON EIDERS at the 
4th jetty (inlet is 5). Other ducks included SURF SCOTER and LONG-TAILED DUCKS 
along with a diminished est. 600 GREATER SCAUP.
PURPLE SANDPIPERS were seen on 3 different jetties. There are deep crevasses 
between the rocks and the shorebirds quickly disappeared after being 
momentarily flushed by a crashing surf. There may have been more.
Three tries, but we got our target birds.
