With migration at a stand still here in Sullivan County, Lance Verderame and I traveled to Long Island this morning to see if we could pick up some new year birds. It was a good day with Lance picking up three new birds and I picking up one. We birded Robert Moses, Jones Beach, Shinnecock Inlet and Cupsogue County Park. Highlights of the day included Common, Forster’s and ROYAL TERN, Piping and Black-bellied Plover, RED KNOT, LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULL, Common Eider, Merlin and Peregrine Falcon. We ended a good day with 55 species!
