After reading about Nick Bonomo's outstanding find of not one, but two Mew Gulls in Connecticut yesterday I decided  to work the waterfront this morning making stops at Bush Terminal, Gravesend Bay, Coney Island Creek Park and Hendrix Creek. Although there were several hundred Ring-billed Gulls throughout, no rare gulls were among them. Highlights included:
Bush Terminal:Eurasian Wigeon 
Bonaparte's Gull Great CormorantKilldeer
Gravesend Bay:Continuing Gannet show
Coney Island Creek:Horned Grebe (some in breeding plumage)Both loons.
Hendrix Creek:Green-winged TealNorthern ShovelerRuddy DuckWilson's SnipeKilldeerSwamp Sparrow
Good birding,
