Didn’t luck out with last week’s raptor parade  (only a lone Peregrine, Merlin 
and Coopers) -  just off shore where huge flocks of Black Scoter heading east 
and plenty of dive bombing Northern Gannets making use of the breaking 
afternoon sunlight.  The dunes and grasses were teaming with Yellow-rumps, 
plenty of Eastern Phoebes, and decent numbers of sparrows.  A huge flock of 
Brants settled in the baseball fields with the Herring Gulls.  Among the morass 
were a decent numbers of White-Crowned Sparrows (appear to be healthier numbers 
this fall) and one Vesper.  36 species in all.
