Subject: [nysbirds-l] Brooklyn Coastal Highlights
I made several stops along Brooklyn Coastal during the earlier downpours albeit a bit late in the morning.

Highlights included, 42 Bonaparte’s Gulls at Gravesend Bay (Middle Parking Lot). The rains created some pools and Gulls were gathering there - though nothing unusual in the mixed flock.

At Drier Offerman I also connected with the massive flock of Bonaparte’s mentioned by Sean Sime. While no unusual Gull turned up in that flock, I did manage to pull out a Common Tern from among the Gulls. A Wilson’s Snipe and Louisiana Waterthrush were other highlights from that location.

Later at Floyd Bennett Field I managed 6 Lesser Black-backed Gulls, all adults. Quite good given that I had arrived there later than I would have liked.
