[~BEGIN RBA TAPE~]

Greetings! This is the New York Rare Bird Alert for Friday, July 9,
2021 at 10:00 pm.

The highlights of today's tape are PURPLE GALLINULE, WHITE-FACED IBIS,
WHITE-WINGED DOVE, BROWN PELICAN, HUDSONIAN and MARBLED GODWITS,
ARCTIC and GULL-BILLED TERNS, various Shearwaters, BLUE GROSBEAK,
DICKCISSEL and more.

At Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge, the East Pond continues to attract
interesting birds, but, unfortunately, the adult PURPLE GALLINULE has
not been seen there since last Saturday.  However, the adult
WHITE-FACED IBIS does continue to be seen, though now generally north
of the Raunt on the east side of the pond, perhaps even up to the
north end.  Today an HUDSONIAN GODWIT in nice plumage was seen just
north of the Raunt, also visible from the end of the Big John’s Pond
path.  A GULL-BILLED TERN has been visiting the East Pond occasionally
during the week, and on Tuesday a MARBLED GODWIT was spotted in Joco
Marsh east of the East Pond subway tracks by a kayaker.

An earlier HUDSONIAN GODWIT had also been reported last Sunday
morning, this a flyby at Mother’s Beach out in Bellport.

An incursion of BROWN PELICANS commenced last Monday, when 9 were seen
flying east over the ocean in the Zach’s Bay area of Jones Beach.  On
Tuesday and Wednesday 1 was also noted in Jones Inlet and on Wednesday
at Nickerson Beach, and this all led up to today, when 5 were
initially seen flying west from Davis Park on central Fire Island, 4
of these shortly thereafter spotted off Robert Moses State Park on
western Fire Island and then 4 hours later noted still moving
southwest off Breezy Point.  These won’t be the last to be seen along
the south shore.

Out at Cupsogue County Park in Westhampton Dunes an adult ARCTIC TERN
was photographed on the mud flats Monday, with other birds there also
including a briefly seen flock of 10 WHIMBREL and an AMERICAN BITTERN.

Last week’s WHITE-WINGED DOVE was still being noted Saturday at a
private home out in Hampton Bays, with another or the same bird
reported Monday in Huntington Station, these residential sites both
areas with restricted access and information.

The tropical storm moving through our area this morning provided most
of its oceanic activity well out on eastern Long Island, especially
off Montauk Point, where totals from this morning’s sea watch included
80 CORY’S, 49 GREAT and 5 SOOTY SHEARWATERS, 258 WILSON'S
STORM-PETRELS and lots of ROSEATE TERNS. Much further west Robert
Moses State Park only produced single GREAT and SOOTY SHEARWATERS and
a few WILSON’S STORM-PETRELS, though 8 WHIMBRELS were also noted
passing by.  A BLACK TERN was off Smith Point County Park today.

Last Monday a peak of 16 WILSON’S STORM-PETRELS was present off Breezy
Point, where 34 LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULLS were counted Thursday.
An ACADIAN FLYCATCHER remains in Prospect Park, and among some
floaters this week were a couple of WORM-EATING WARBLERS in Central
Park.

BLUE GROSBEAKS continue in the Calverton Grasslands, and the three
singing male DICKCISSELS on the landfill at Croton Point Park have
happily attracted a female or two, so please remain on the main trail
and do not disturb these birds in any manner.

To phone in reports call Tom Burke at (914) 967-4922.

This service is sponsored by the Linnaean Society of New York and the
National Audubon Society.  Thank you for calling.
