Highlights from a few hours at Breezy Point this morning included a 
(flyby/flushed ?) Marbled Godwit.

Other notables included 4 flagged Sanderlings all of which were documented.

A White-winged and 1 Surf Scoter continue. The White-winged Scoter was first 
observed on July 18th and 2 Surf Scoters were seen on the evening of July 25th. 
Only one seen today.

3 Lesser Black-backed Gulls on the beach among the usual suspects; two aged as 
2CY and the other 3CY. My favorite part of the day was looking at eleven 
juvenile Great Black-backed Gulls. The “Beast of the East.”

Tern numbers seem down. Mostly Common Terns, adults with several juveniles were 
fishing and loafing on the beach.

The Ocean was tame today a far cry from the angry sea of a few days ago. 
Despite the lack of reports to the list serve from Queens Coastal, I was out 
there sea watching on a few occasions during the week. A few Wilson’s 
Storm-Petrels were all I got for my efforts.

others, rather than to be false, and to incur my own abhorrence." ~ Frederick
