While I knew the forecast called for wind-driven rain today, I was unaware that it would be coming out of the east! Once I saw the reports out of Brooklyn, I knew it would be an interesting day, so I text Simon Lane. While I could not repeat his mid-morning performance, I did see some good birds this afternoon.
Highlights at LSP were: 7 BONAPARTE'S GULLS, 2 ICELAND GULLS (1st cycle & 2nd cycle), and an adult LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULL.
A few notes...the Canon sx50 is so handy for doc shots, especially in poor weather when I leave my DSLR home. Also, it takes a storm to get these kind of Bonie numbers in the Upper Bay these days, they liked it better when it was polluted!
