An impressive flight following last night’s NW winds included a flyby 
observation of Say’s Phoebe near the Jones Beach Coast Guard Station boat basin 
this morning. I cannot say whether the bird continued on or put down somewhere 
nearby; I followed up its flight and spent some time searching but could not 
refind it. Notes from the field for this fleeting encounter are included in my 
eBird checklist. Other birds of interest included Clay-colored Sparrow, 
Dickcissel, Red-headed Woodpecker, and over 1,000 Yellow-rumps. Marbled Godwits 
and Caspian Terns continue on the spit.
