BEGIN TAPE

Greetings. This is the New York Rare Bird Alert for Friday, August 9th 2019
at 9pm. The highlights of today's tape are a pelagic trip featuring
WHITE-FACED STORM-PETREL, BAND-RUMPED STORM-PETREL, LEACH'S STORM-PETREL,
AUDUBON'S SHEARWATER, BRIDLED TERN, BROWN BOOBY, BROWN PELICAN,
WHITE-WINGED DOVE, MISSISSIPPI KITE, MARBLED GODWIT, HUDSONIAN GODWIT,
RED-HEADED WOODPECKER and more.

The Great Gull Island BRIDLED TERN was still around on Monday but not
roosting at its usual location and only seen in flight. Another BRIDLED
TERN was spotted last Sunday from a private fishing boat about 60 miles or
so south of Montauk at a site known as the Claw. Highlights of that trip
certainly were the 2 WHITE-FACED STORM-PETRELS seen along with 1
BAND-RUMPED, 13 LEACH'S and 538 WILSON'S STORM-PETRELS, an AUDUBON'S, 3
GREAT and 4 CORY'S SHEARWATERS.

Last Saturday afternoon an immature BROWN BOOBY landed on the yard arm of
the sloop the Clearwater as it sailed south on the Hudson River only
leaving and flying north as the boat neared its Cold Spring destination.
The BOOBY has not been relocated.

A BROWN PELICAN visited Jones Inlet yesterday initially feeding near and
roosting on the tidal sandbar across the bay from the Coast Guard Station
but then coming in to rest for awhile on the Coast Guard Station jetty
before eventually flying off.

Nice finds but only seen briefly were a WHITE-WINGED DOVE photographed
Monday morning as it sat in a dead pine tree along Bay Parkway a little
west of Jones Beach field 10 and a MISSISSIPPI KITE identified Sunday as it
passed over Hallock State Park Preserve in Northville on the north fork.
The KITE heading south.

Shorebird migration continues but frustratingly without one of our regions
most spectacular venues, the East Pond at Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge,
where high water continues to deprive both birds and birders the use of
this wonderful resource. Decent numbers of seasonal shorebirds have been
gathering at Cupsogue County Park in West Hampton Dunes but a number of
MARBLED GODWITS had risen to 5 as of yesterday. At Old Inlet last week's
HUDSONIAN GODWIT was joined by a MARBLED GODWIT last weekend and other
counts from there from Sunday featured 190 RED KNOTS, roughly 4,000
SANDERLINGS, 29 LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULLS and 2 CASPIAN and 60 ROYAL TERNS.
Two more MARBLED GODWITS were at Brooklyn's Plumb Beach today while some
WHIMBREL noted this week included 4 at Old Inlet last Saturday and 17
flying by Jones Beach West End yesterday. Among the shorebirds noted at
Jones Beach last Monday were single STILT and PECTORAL SANDPIPERS. Three
CASPIAN TERNS did visit Jamaica Bay's East Pond last Sunday.

Two RED-HEADED WOODPECKERS were still along the Paumanok Trail on the west
side of Schultz Road north of Jones Pond in Manorville Monday and BLUE
GROSBEAK was still present at the nearby Calverton Grasslands the same day.

Among the small but increasing number of migrating warblers this week were
single CERULEAN WARBLERS reported from Central Park and Fort Washington
Park and such other regionally breeding species as WORM-EATING, BLUE-WINGED
and HOODED.

To phone in reports on Long Island call Tony Lauro at (631) 734-4126 or
call Tom Burke at (914) 967-4922.

This service is sponsored by the Linnaean Society of New York and the
