Subject: [nysbirds-l] Black Tern at Breezy Point: Queens County
There was a Black Tern in nearly full adult plumage feeding off the jetty
at the tip of Breezy Point this afternoon. Also noteworthy was a flock of
114 Semipalmated Sandpipers containing 2 White-rumped Sandpipers and a
Dunlin. A low soaring Turkey Vulture was unusual for the location and date,
but not surprising given their expansion on LI.

Of the modest number of Common Terns on the Gateway side only a single
first-year plumaged bird was observed.


Good birding,
