We spent all of Saturday, and most of Sunday up west. In the A.M. we
watched our  #3 grandson, Brendan, play for the Chaminade J.V. Football
Team, which beat a good Cardinal Hayes squad, and qualified for the CHSAA
championship against Iona Prep next Saturday...Go Flyers !  In the P.M., I
went down to Jones Beach in search of the Gray Kingbird, without success.
The west end was quiet, although I did have a total of 8 Lesser
Black-backed Gulls in West End Field 2 (7 in the west parking lot, with an
additional bird in the eastern p/lot. I then went as far east as the Gilgo
Marina Community, which was equally as quiet - I did, however, see single
Cooper's Hawk, Red-tailed Hawk and Merlin !

After sleeping over at our daughter's in Rockville Centre, on Sunday
afternoon we routed ourselves  through Jones Beach, which was even quieter
than the day before. Nary a single Lesser Black-backed Gull was found at
WEJB2, with a perched Merlin in the east lot the only bird of note. Another
resting Merlin, was the only notable bird seen along the entire length of
the Ocean Parkway !
