Karen Miller, Matt Zeitler, Jeff Goulding and I participated in Orange County’s “Break 100 Day” from 4pm Friday to 4 p, Saturday 5/20/17. We had a really great time and ended our day with 106 species! There were some really amazing highlights that kept us happy through the day. All members of our team made some great spots and it was a fun time for all. Our best birds of the day were as follows, listed by the first seen to the last. Sora (heard only Six and a Half Station Road), Bay-breasted Warbler (pair Pochuck State Forest), Golden-winged Warbler and KENTUCKY WARBLER (Sterling Forest), LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULL (Newburg Waterfront) and WHITE-EYED VIREO (Hamptonburgh Park). It was really a great day and the Gull Spectacle at the Newburgh Waterfront was the highlight. We had exactly 100 Ring-billed Gulls, 2 Herring Gulls, which we don’t normally get, and an absolutely amazing LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULL that I am sure will be a first ever for the count! Thank you Karen, Matt and Jeff for helping to make this a day I will long remember!
