15 birders met on a day where quality trumped quantity. We started the day with a look at the continuing painted bunting but the surprise bird of the day was a first winter black-headed gull spotted by Bobbi on prospect lake. One of the most interesting day lists I've ever had in Brooklyn only rivaled by the Cassin's/Le Conte list at Floyd on nov 30 last year. We also managed a woodpecker sweep but only 39 species total on an otherwise quiet day. As always I'm sure I forgot a few but if anyone wants list just email me.
