There was a Clay-colored Sparrow at Jones Beach today, around the hedgerows
near the Coast Guard station. It sounds like it may have been seen Monday,
as well, but doesn't seem to be seen for long. Fortunately, I took long
range pictures - which, at least, don't take off before the ID can be
verified. I think Ed Becher was one of the previous observers. He was
definitely one of the observers today - being the one that spotted it - of a
young / female type Blue Grosbeak on the south side of the entrance road to
the parking lot.  


Birds of note on the sand spit were a juvenile Caspian Tern and its parent,
as well as at least three continuing Marbled Godwits.
