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

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 Gulls.: 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.
