Odds and Ends - 25 Sep 2010

Karen Rubinstein birded Montauk & Deep Hollow on Thursday morning (23 Sep), finding numerous Northern Flickers and Eastern Phoebes. Many Laughing Gulls, Common Terns and a few FORSTER'S TERNS continue off the Point. Karen noted at least 15 RED-BREASTED NUTHATCHES. At Teddy Roosevelt County Park (3rd House) she found a sprinkling of migrants including MERLIN, BALTIMORE ORIOLE, INDIGO BUNTING and WHITE-THROATED SPARROW. Two SEMIPALMATED PLOVERS were with the Killdeer on the pasture in Deep Hollow south of the road. Two or probably three TURKEY VULTURES were in the area between Deep Hollow and Camp Hero. In the evening a GREAT HORNED OWL visited Vicki Bustamante's property above East Lake Drive.

Visiting Mecox Inlet on Friday evening (24 Sep), John Shemilt found 2 CASPIAN TERNS, a LEAST TERN, 5 COMMON TERN, 40+ FORSTER'S TERNS, 2 DUNLIN, 11 GREATER YELLOWLEGS and a LEAST SANDPIPER. In Springs, Karen and Barb Rubinstein spotted three COMMON NIGHTHAWKS just before dusk. They appeared to come in from over Gardiner's Bay and then flew south.

This morning (25 Sep), Luke Ormand found 5 SOLITARY SANDPIPERS, a LESSER YELLOWLEGS and around 15 BLUE-WINGED TEAL on the pools in the field behind the South Fork Natural History (SoFo) Museum and Nature Center in Bridgehampton.
