Doug Gochfeld and I visited Breezy Point mid-morning in mild and relatively
windless conditions.
Visibility was excellent and surface conditions on the bay and ocean were
glass-like. The lack of wind allowed for some good ear birding as well and
there were plenty of lingering half-hardies.

Highlights include:

9 Razorbill
2 Red-necked Grebe
180 Surf Scoter
850 White-winged Scoter
140 Black Scoter
5 Common Eider
1 Bald Eagle (juvenile)
1 Horned Lark
12 Snow Bunting
8 Tree Swallow
3 Ruby-crowned Kinglet
6 Gray Catbird
7 Field Sparrow
