Harlequin Ducks at Ditch Plains 22 Feb 2009

For some reason, the birding between East Hampton and Montauk (Suffolk Co., Long Island) was a bit slow this morning, and was not helped by the intermittent rain and generally soggy conditions. The only birds of local that I could find were:

HARLEQUIN DUCK - 4 (2 ad. males, 1 fem and 1 im. male) continue off Ditch Plains.
RED-NECKED GREBE - 2 continue off Culloden Point.
Great Cormorant - 3 ads. Montauk Inlet, 1 ad. Montauk Point, 1 imm. Fort Pond Bay.
Lesser Black-backed Gull - 1 ad. 'Larry' continues at Lazy Point, Napeague.
Purple Sandpiper - 10 Georgica Jetties, 15+ Ditch Plains, 2 Montauk Inlet.
Canvasback - 9 Fort Pond.
Horned Lark - 2 Napeague.
