Joe Giunta and I (Sy Schiff) started at the Coast Guard hedgerow looking for sparrows. Birds to look at but only WHITE-THROATED, WHITE-CROWNED and SONG. A MARBLED GODWIT continues on the bar with a hundred AMEERICAN OYSTERCATCHERS; BLACK and SURF SCOTERS are still in the water.
We drove over to the east exit of West End #2 lot and found the 2 VESPER SPARROWS reported. On the beach were 2 LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULLS. NORTHERN GANNETS were plunging into the water, always a great thing to watch. YELLOW-RUMPED WARBLERS are everywhere and a steady stream of TREE SWALLOWS were moving through. There are a number of NORTHERN FLICKERS in the air and on the lawns.
