I made several stops along Brooklyn Coastal during the earlier downpours albeit 
a bit late in the morning.

Highlights included, 42 Bonaparte’s Gulls at Gravesend Bay (Middle Parking 
Lot). The rains created some pools and Gulls were gathering there - though 
nothing unusual in the mixed flock.

At Drier Offerman I also connected with the massive flock of Bonaparte’s 
mentioned by Sean Sime. While no unusual Gull turned up in that flock, I did 
manage to pull out a Common Tern from among the Gulls. A Wilson’s Snipe and 
Louisiana Waterthrush were other highlights from that location.

Later at Floyd Bennett Field I managed 6 Lesser Black-backed Gulls, all adults. 
Quite good given that I had arrived there later than I would have liked.


“He who fights with monsters should look to it that he himself does not become 
a monster. And if you gaze long into an abyss, the abyss also gazes into you.” 
- Nietzsche 

"I prefer to be true to myself, even at the hazard of incurring the ridicule of 
others, rather than to be false, and to incur my own abhorrence." ~ Frederick
