The American Avocet continues at Mecox Inlet, ignoring para-sailors,
running children, and Great Black-backed Gulls.

The American Avocet was still present at 7:30 this morning, on the eastern
side of the (sometime) cut from Mecox Bay to the ocean. It had its head
tucked while I was there, despite birders' relatively close presence.
There were a very few other shorebirds (Piping Plover, Sanderling,
Semipalmated Sandpiper, both Yellowlegs), and Chris Gangemi spotted an
adult Lesser Black-backed Gull amid the Great Black-backed and Herring

I returned via Shinnecock Inlet and Dune Road. Other than a strong westward
flux of Barn Swallows and a large Tree Swallow flock at Triton Lane, I saw
nothing notable, either during a short sea watch at the inlet or at various
stops to the west. Neither I nor Eileen Schwinn, whom I met at Tiana Beach,
found the Avocet that had been there earlier this week.
