2017-09-20 Thread Glenn Quinn
Took a quick drive to Smith Point CP on my lunch hour today, from 1-1:30PM. At least three Lesser-Black Backed Gulls on the beach. Nothing much on the ocean except an Osprey fighting its way back to shore. About 100 Sanderling on the beach in front of the observation tower. Impressive surf.

[nysbirds-l] Royal Terns

2017-09-20 Thread Isaac Grant
In addition to the Sooty Tern there were 241 Royal Terns. Most roosting on the beach at the same time. This should be a new state high count. Surely we're more birds to be seen as there was a steady stream of them flying in from the south. Isaac Grant Senior Loan Officer -- NYSbirds-L List

2017-09-20 Thread Andrew Baksh
Nothing crazy to report from Breezy Point. Save for the breaches on the beach - in several places. I spent a few hours this morning combing the beach and scanning the ocean. The highlights were 13-15 Dolphins frolicking around just off the tip. 279 Herring Gulls, 78 Great Black-backed Gulls,

2017-09-20 Thread Doug Gochfeld
There is currently an adult American Golden-Plover on the beach at Coney Island Creek Park, just west of the park proper, adjacent to (and north of) the eastern edge of Sea Gate. It seems to now be fairly settled into the wrack/debris line, and the tide is rising, so perhaps it will stay a while.
