Hugh McGuinness found a lone PECTORAL SANDPIPER at Mecox Inlet, where John Shemilt also noted a female NORTHERN SHOVELER. Hugh also viewed a SORA that had been found dead by Marilee Foster at her farm in Sagaponack. In Bridgehampton, Jim Ash found five SOLITARY SANDPIPERS on the flooded fields behind the SoFo Museum.
Further east, Vicki Bustamante found an AMERICAN GOLDEN-PLOVER on the pasture in Deep Hollow Ranch in Montauk. At the Point Seth Ausubel, Brent Bomkamp and Stella Miller spotted a CASPIAN TERN and WHIMBREL that flew in off the ocean and landed on the beach on the north side. Waterbirds around the Point included a lone WHITE-WINGED SCOTER, four COMMON EIDERS and 9 BLACK TERNS. Passerine migrants were highlighted by a flock of 15 BOBOLINKS.
By the way, up on the North Fork, John Sep found a Hudsonian Godwit on Dam Pond on the north side of the causeway between East Marion and Orient. Clearly a bird to look for on the South Fork.
