Subject: [nysbirds-l] Breezy Point - Sooty Shearwater 7-5
A single Sooty Shearwater and 1 2CY Lesser Black-backed Gull (LBBG) were the highlights from a few hours at Breezy Point. Based on field notes and photos, the LBBG, appears to be a different bird than the 2CY one I had on the 24th of June.

9 Piping Plovers, including a few immature birds, indicating some successful nesting.

Some Tern activity way offshore but I could not pull out anything notable from the mess.

A phonescoped image of the LBBG can be seen here.
