[~BEGIN RBA TAPE~]
Greetings. This is the New York Rare Bird Alert for Wednesday,
November 26th at 6:00 pm.

The highlights of today’s tape are CASSIN’S KINGBIRD, COMMON
GROUND-DOVE, HENSLOW’S SPARROW, TUNDRA SWAN, EURASIAN WIGEON,
DICKCISSEL, and LAPLAND LONGSPUR.

Now that’s like it should be!  Last Saturday word of the rediscovery
of the CASSIN’S KINGBIRD at Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn spread
very quickly by phone, internet and texts, and by mid-afternoon dozens
of birders were enjoying this 2nd New York State record.  Many more
arrived on Sunday, and the Kingbird very obligingly spent much of its
time in the picnic area south of the Community Garden off the west
side of Aviation Blvd. First seen briefly at Floyd Bennett on Saturday
the 15th, the bird remained undetected through the entire cold week
only to be re-found in the same general area it was initially seen in.
Both Saturday and Sunday it did wander about a bit but returned to the
Community Garden area, even spending some time on Tuesday in the
Community Garden itself.  Based on some excellent photos taken, one of
its main food items seems to be Yellowjackets, so this current weather
event will probably have an adverse impact on its stay.  For those
unfamiliar with Floyd Bennett Field, the entrance is off Flatbush
Avenue just north of the Marine Parkway Gil Hodges Memorial Bridge;
take the first left off the entrance road onto Aviation Boulevard and
proceed a short distance to the Community Garden on the left.

This weather change will also presumably impact New York’s second
COMMON GROUND-DOVE, still being seen Tuesday but recently becoming
much more elusive at Jones Beach West End.  Last Saturday the bird
spent much of its time along the northern edge of the West End 2
parking lot between the center exit and the eastern end, whereas
previously it had been more inclined to feed in the vegetation near
the eastern entrance and exit roads.

A bonus find on Sunday was a richly colored HENSLOW’S SPARROW nicely
spotted at Riis Park along its border with Fort Tilden.  The Sparrow
frequented a goldenrod patch and the adjacent shorter vegetation in a
field just south of the SW corner of the golf course on the east side
of the dead end road separating the two parks.  Often very hard to
find or see as it ran around like a vole in the grasses, the Henslow’s
was nevertheless also enjoyed by a number of birders Monday, and some
decent photos were obtained, though certainly not of the caliber of
those of the Ground-Dove and Kingbird.

Other birds at Floyd Bennett included a LAPLAND LONGSPUR Saturday on
the cricket field and a decent number of EASTERN BLUEBIRDS, down from
the previous week but still frequenting various open areas, including
the field south of the Community Garden.  Riis Park on Sunday also
provided a flyby LAPLAND LONGSPUR and an AMERICAN BITTERN hiding in
vegetation around the Henslow’s field.

At Jones Beach West End up to five LAPLAND LONGSPURS were present
Saturday in the swale in front of the West End 2 pavilion, joining
some HORNED LARKS and a flock of 40 or so SNOW BUNTINGS, while on
Sunday a DICKCISSEL was photographed along the western edge of Lot 2.
The MARBLED GODWIT was present again Tuesday morning on the bar off
the Coast Guard Station after having been seen on a bar out in Jones
Inlet Monday afternoon, and PURPLE SANDPIPERS are back on the West End
jetty.

The Brooklyn EURASIAN WIGEON was seen again Sunday at Bush Terminal
Piers Park west of 1st Avenue between 44th and 50th Streets.

Among the lingering landbirds, a WILSON’S WARBLER was still at Kissena
Park in Queens Tuesday.

With all the birding effort concentrated on western Long Island, our
only report of note from out east involves two TUNDRA SWANS on Hook
Pond in East Hampton last Saturday.

To phone in reports, on Long Island call Tony Lauro at (631) 734-4126,
or weekdays call Tom Burke at (212) 372-1483.

This service is sponsored by the Linnaean Society of New York and the
National Audubon Society. Thank you for calling and have a Happy
Thanksgiving.

Subject: Long Island Sound (LIS) Bird Count (during Dec 1st thru Jan 4th)
From: Thomas Robben <robben99 AT gmail.com>
Date: Wed, 26 Nov 2014 15:28:15 -0500
SEEKING YOUR HELP HUNTING FOR SEABIRDS THROUGHOUT LONG ISLAND SOUND.

COA is organizing a month-long December (12/1 thru 1/4) count of seabirds
on Long Island Sound (LIS). If you would like to join this 2-year project
and contribute one or more LIS observations, please take a look at the
following website and the instructions:

http://LISBirdCount.wordpress.com 

Razorbills (and other alcids) are among the species we are searching for,
because of their very abnormal migrations during the last few winters.
Please help us with this by reporting on seabirds anywhere in Long Island
Sound, in both CT and NY waters, anytime during December, through January
4th.     This is a joint NY and CT project, with some inputs from RI at the
eastern extreme of LIS.

Thanks very much!

Tom Robben

Arturo Kirkconnell is the bird curator at the National Museum of Natural
History of Cuba. His curriculum vitae includes 77 scientific papers and he
is author of two books: A Field Guide to the Birds of Cuba, and A
Birdwatchers' Guide to Cuba, Jamaica, Hispaniola, Puerto Rico and the
Caymans. At present, he is working in another project: The birds of Cuba
that will be published by the BOU Checklist Series and A photographic Guide
to the Birds of Cuba. Arturo has been leading birding tours in his native
Cuba since 1988. To date he has guided more than 200 birding groups. He
designed the present birding itinerary and the main birding strategies in
Cuba. For any information about birding in Cuba, Cuban birds or to assist

Subject: Re: Canvasbacks off Mariandale, Ossining

From the previous posts: Charlie Roberto had a raft of 104 Canvasback - and
your report had them at 51...


As the late, great Walt Sabin used to say (half jokingly) when counting
Canvasbacks, take your numerical count and double it, since half of the
raft would be under water....

Subject: Henslow's- No
From: David Klauber <davehawkowl AT msn.com>
Date: Tue, 25 Nov 2014 14:06:48 -0500
 Despite extensive searching this morning the Henslow's Sparrow at Riis park 
was not found. The Cassin's Kingbird continued at Ft. Tilden through the 
morning, frequenting the gardens, before flying east around 12:30. There was a 
report that the Common Ground-Dove was not seen this morning, although it was 
seen on Sunday in the NE corner of WE2, where it had been frequenting 
previously

In Hudson River off Mariandale Conf. Center and Retreat in Ossining this 
morning Charlie Roberto had a raft of 104 Canvasback, which seem increasingly 
rare on the river in recent years. Also seen of note were 2 American Widgeon, 
and elsewhere on the property 3 pine siskin, 1 purple finch, and two wild 
turkey. 


As an aside, I saw a first of season common loon from train right on shore 
between Scarborough (Briarcliff Manor) and Phillips Manor (North Tarrytown) 
yesterday.

 Derek Rogers just called (8 AM)to say after some searching the Cassin's

Just a heads up for any and all trying for the sparrow tomorrow.  The
bridge is no longer closed as of 5 pm today.  It was stuck in the up
position but is back and open for traffic. So no need to detour to the
Crossbay bridge.

Subject: Re:Henslow's Sparrow
From: Jean Loscalzo <dm5078 AT aol.com>
Date: Mon, 24 Nov 2014 20:27:31 -0500
Riis Park, Queens
Monday 11/  /14

Following up on earlier posts, late afternoon had 6 birders looking in the 
southeastern field and edges next to the golf course. The bird was finally 
located several times, and a few people had decent although quick looks. 
Deborah Martin and Steve Schellenger packed it in leaving Bobby Berlingeri, 
Bobby Kurtz, Eric Miller and me. As per the tiny URL link Arie Gilbert posted, 
the bird was last in the upper left hand area. As it got later (after 4:15) the 
bird became more active, moving around and feeding in the shorter brush along 
the field edge in front of the fence. We were able to get extended close looks, 
and the bird was still active at 4:50pm when we finally left. 


A big THANK YOU PAT for finding this bird!

ps a reminder to check on the bridge status before going for this bird, the 
Marine Pkwy Bridge was closed for the entire day today.

Left my Starbucks coffee mug at the Kingbird site, if anybody happened to grab 
it, hit me up off list. My wife is not happy , this is the second $30 dollar 
coffee mug I have given as an offering to the rare bird gods. Thanks!

   Very close to the So. parking area of the Community Garden between 2:15 and 
3:15pm. I saw the bird as soon as I got out of my car w/pics. I couldn't get to 
Riis Pk to look for the Henslow's Sparrow b/c the bridge was closed  due to a 
fire. 

If you plan a trip, it would be wise to get there before 11am due to 
construction going eastbound on the Belt Pky. NP going westbound. Construction 
is from 11am -5pm daily. Good luck __._,_.___ Posted by: gruve888 AT yahoo.com

Subject: Henslow's Sparrow - Riis Park
From: Deborah Martin <martindf AT optonline.net>
Date: Mon, 24 Nov 2014 18:06:38 -0500
The Henslow's Sparrow was seen at about 3:45 PM by 6 birders. All of the 
information in David Klauber's post is very helpful and was accurate for what 
we observed. The bird was flushed from short low grass in the center of the 
field when one birder stepped very close to it. It flew to the edge of the 
field on the north side bordering the golf course and remained low in the 
taller grass along the anchor fence in a sandy area left of where a Mylar 
balloon is caught in the grass. We never saw it fly out but did have brief 
views of it that area. It may have flown through the fence to the scrub around 
the golf course. Thanks to all who've posted descriptions today - both of the 
area and the bridge closure.

Subject: FW: Henslow's Sparrow
From: David Klauber <davehawkowl AT msn.com>
Date: Mon, 24 Nov 2014 15:44:43 -0500
a little more info on this bird. Henslow's is a skulker normally, and in 
today's wind even more so, keeping low and scurrying between tufts of grass. It 
would be (and was) easy to miss even at close range as it ducks into the grass. 
When I saw it, and Bob and Ed saw it earlier, they nearly stepped on it, as it 
was hiding in the tufts of grass in the middle of this open wet area. I believe 
Jacob's group found it in the tall shrubs next to the golf course, and when we 
left around 2:30 it flew into the taller grass west of the field, opposite the 
golf course. The "field" where it's been seen is just southwest of the 
southwest corner of the golf course, almost at Fort Tilden. Bob stuck a large 
branch or stick in the middle of the field as a reference point. Today there 
were several wet patches, so the habitat probably approached that of Henslow's 
breeding territory. I have seen Henslow's before, but never as bright olive as 
this bird. The olive head contrasted strongly with the brown and buff marked 
back, and the eye ring was fairly prominent. Outstanding find by Pat, and for 
me the best of the good run of fall rarities. And special thanks to Bob and Ed 
for staying on the bird while I dealt with the traffic and bridge closing. 

As noted by Arie, you have to use the bridge at Cross Bay Boulevard to get to 
Riis Park

Considering the battery of cameras trained on the very cooperative Cassin's 
Kingbird yesterday at Floyd Bennet Field, I'm a bit surprised that so few photo 
links have been posted yet. 

Here's one to the Flickr album I created and to which I uploaded some of my 
better (non-DSLR quality) images, including some open-wing shots showing the 
bird's emarginated primaries:

Jacob Drucker texted about half an hour ago that he, Nadir Souirgi, and
James Knox have refound the Henslows, in the same area that it was seen
yesterday at the south west corner of the golf course at Jacob Riis park.
It flushed out of the center of the field and then flew towards the fence
by the golf course.

The Brooklyn Cassin's Kingbird shows deeply notched outer primaries (pp 
5-10), which I believe are indicative of an adult bird at this date (and 
probably a male). The rectrices also
  appear truncate (vs. tapered) and of uniform age, also, I think, 
implying an adult at this date.

 




A series of photos here illustrate some of these features:

hatching-year Montauk bird of 13 Oct 2007:

Subject: RE: Common Ground Dove search
From: Christina Wilkinson <nutrichris AT rcn.com>
Date: Sun, 23 Nov 2014 17:54:37 -0500
I went to Floyd Bennett Field today for the Cassin’s Kingbird, which was 
easily findable, and then to Jones Beach West End 2 for the Common Ground Dove. 
I could not locate the Ground Dove and the birders in the area that I asked did 
not see it, either. The last I heard it was at the easternmost section of West 
End 2, near the entrance/exit to the parking lot.

Subject: Henslow's Sparrow + @ Jacob Riis Park Queens Co.
From: Andrew Baksh <birdingdude AT gmail.com>
Date: Sun, 23 Nov 2014 13:33:23 -0500
In a true Patagonia Picnic Table Effect, Pat "eagle eyed" Lindsay found a
Henslow's Sparrow near the south west corner at the Riis Park Golf course.
This is near a strip of vegetation that runs south towards the beach.

Several of us saw the bird as it moved but not the killer looks that
Lindsay got. While searching I literally almost stepped on an American
Bittern hiding in the vegetation that took off heading into the golf course.

Good luck if you go!

It has been 35 years, 4 months, and (?)* days, while visiting my
brother-in-law in Flagstaff, Arizona, since seeing my first, and until
today, only Cassin's Kingbird ! Having missed the fast-moving, first of
specie for NYS (10/13/07,Camp Hero, Montauk Point, Andy Baldelli), coupled
with my missing this bird last Sunday, made getting this "state bird"  a
memorable occasion for me. I, along with many others, had fairly close
looks at the bird while perched, as well as in flight, on both sides of
Aviation Rd., s/o the Community Gardens. Along with clear, warm weather and
no wind to speak of, plus the bonus of seeing fellow birders (some not seen
for awhile...some since last Sunday, ugh !) I also had the pleasure of
matching a face to quite a few NYSBIRDS-L postings, when I got to meet Curt
McDermott.

Bronx Brendan and I left our usual haunts at Pelham Bay Park in the Bronx 
yesterday morning and traveled north to Croton Point Park. 

Highlights were several Bald Eagles, both perched and overhead, a Long-eared 
Owl, Eastern Meadowlarks and two male Northern Harriers working the former 
landfill. 


Many of the usual winter species were around: Juncos, Titmouse, Chickadees, WB 
Nuthatch, Red-tailed Hawks, Savannah, Song and Tree Sparrows, RC Kinglet, Brown 
Creepers, Turkey Vultures and Cedar Waxwings. 

On the water we could only find Bufflehead.

Subject: Dead Moose in Little Tupper Lake/Gray Jays/Black-backed Woodpeckers/Ruffed Grouse
From: Joan Collins <joan.collins AT frontier.com>
Date: Sat, 22 Nov 2014 21:31:09 -0500
11/22/14 Long Lake (Hamilton Co.)

 

Today at Little Tupper Lake, I encountered a disturbing sight.  A Moose did
not make it across the lake overnight.  The lake was open water just a few
days ago and quickly froze from the cold snap - but it wouldn't be thick
enough to hold such a heavy animal yet.  About 10 Common Ravens and an adult
Bald Eagle were feeding on the carcass (it appears to be the Moose's back
sticking out of the ice).  It is located near the southern shore across from
the Round Pond outlet bridge.  The owners of the land near this spot have
recently photographed two Moose on their trail cameras.  I think it is
likely that it will still be visible tomorrow, but with the warm-up I am
told that the animal will sink when the water opens back up.  Several people
driving by had noticed the animal out on the ice and stopped to ask me what
it was when they saw my scope.  I posted 11 photos to my Facebook page at
https://www.facebook.com/AdirondackAvian .  It was difficult to photograph
and I had to use my scope and iPhone attachment, both zoomed all the way in.

 

As usual, I was mesmerized by the Common Raven activity at the Moose
carcass.  They stood up to the Bald Eagle and it left - I didn't see it
again!  Their interactions were fascinating.  Several times, they flew about
20 to 30 feet from the carcass to snow-bathe.  They rolled in the snow, so
they were often on their backs with their feet sticking up!

 

At Sabattis Bog, I visited with my two Gray Jay friends!  A female
Black-backed Woodpecker flew in and tried to bother the Gray Jays.  I
followed the woodpecker down the road and the Gray Jays followed.  They
chased the woodpecker.  Usually, it is the other way around and the
Black-backed Woodpeckers chase the Gray Jays.  I posted photos of both
species to my Facebook page.

 

On my drive out of Sabattis Circle Road, I found a Ruffed Grouse feeding
high up in a birch tree.

Isaac Grant tracked it and saw a Sharp-shinned Hawk making a failed run at
it. This caused the bird to head over the Pines going north towards the
open field area where several of us are spread out currently searching.

Many thanks to Klemens Gasser for the refind and to Rob Jett and all others
who ensured the timely reports/updates.

Keep your fingers crossed for a positive update!

For those of you planning your weekend birding with a Common Ground-Dove in
mind.

You will be pleased to know that it continues this AM. Reported by Curt
McDermott, who indicated the bird was in the West End II parking lot near
the curb, south of the rest rooms before it was flushed.

The bird headed out somewhere in the dune area. Given its recent pattern of
movement, it will probably make its way back to the parking lot.

Good luck to those trying for it and many thanks to Curt for the update.

BEGIN TAPE

Greetings. This is the New York Rare Bird Alert for Friday, November 21st
2014 at 7pm. The highlights of today's tape are COMMON GROUND-DOVE,
CASSIN'S KINGBIRD, WHITE-WINGED DOVE, SNOWY OWL, HARLEQUIN DUCK, CATTLE
EGRET, AMERICAN GOLDEN-PLOVER, MARBLED GODWIT and ICELAND GULL.

The COMMON GROUND-DOVE, now with its tail almost fully regrown, was still
at Jones Beach West End Thursday continuing around the eastern entrance and
exit to West End parking field 2 but usually in the grassy areas bordering
the entrance road especially. It has also taken to foraging along the
cement edges of the entrance road and the parking lot itself.

Another second New York State record, a CASSIN'S KINGBIRD, was spotted and
photographed midday Saturday along the entrance road into Floyd Bennett
Field. Unfortunately word of this kingbird could not begin circulating
until after dark and many birders searching on Sunday were unrewarded. It
seems a number of rare flycatchers recently have not been publicized
timely. Is this a problem with the family? Or the fact that there are too
many alternative and very localized information dissemination systems? We
need a consistent centralized method to get the word out quickly not in
increasingly fragmented ones.

Two WHITE-WINGED DOVE sightings last weekend might conceivably have
involved the same rapidly traveling bird. The first White-winged was
spotted Saturday at Fort Tilden, the second Sunday along Dune Road between
West Hampton Beach and Quogue. Neither was reported the day following
observation.

A SNOWY OWL was noted at Jones Beach last weekend and there have been a
couple of other sightings recently so be on the alert for them but don't
expect an incursion like last Winter's.

The drake HARLEQUIN DUCK was at the Jones Beach West End jetty Sunday and
on Wednesday a pair of HARLEQUINS was present along the easternmost jetty
at Point Lookout bordering Jones Inlet. Also in the Jones Beach area last
Saturday the MARBLED GODWIT was on the bar off the Coast Guard Station and
one immature LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULL continued in the West End 2 parking
lot. An ORANGE-CROWNED WARBLER was at West End Sunday and a LAPLAND
LONGSPUR stopped by the West End 2 lot with Horned Larks today.

Other birds at Fort Tilden last weekend included RED-NECKED GREBE and CLIFF
SWALLOW on Saturday and a PARASITIC JAEGER offshore Sunday.

In Brooklyn a drake EURASIAN WIGEON has recently been at Bush Terminal
Piers Park located west of 1st Avenue between 44th and 50th Streets and an
AMERICAN GOLDEN-PLOVER visited Plumb Beach last Saturday. Other interesting
city birds have featured a WOOD THRUSH lingering in central Manhattan,
WILSON'S WARBLER Thursday and BLACK-AND-WHITE WARBLER last Saturday in
Kissena Park in Queens and a few BLUE-HEADED VIREOS. Well over 40 EASTERN
BLUEBIRDS were at Floyd Bennett Field on Sunday.

Out on eastern Long Island a CATTLE EGRET was seen on a horse field on the
north side of Further Lane in East Hampton Monday and an ICELAND GULL was
off Fort Pond Bay in Montauk on Sunday. Other birds seen along Dune Road
west of Shinnecock Inlet Sunday included AMERICAN BITTERN, ORANGE-CROWNED
WARBLER and "Ipswich" SAVANNAH SPARROW.

To phone in reports on Long Island, call Tony Lauro at (631) 734-4126 or
weekdays call Tom Burke at (212) 372-1483.

This service is sponsored by the Linnaean Society of New York and the
National Audubon Society. Thank you for calling.

Subject: Winter hardies and arrivals...
From: Andrew Baksh <birdingdude AT gmail.com>
Date: Fri, 21 Nov 2014 15:27:34 -0500
A non birding trip to Long Island allowed me to stop at Jones Beach where I saw 
a few notables that included 1 Lapland Longspur in the West End II parking lot, 
feeding with a flock of about 17 Horned Larks. 


Near the second exit from that lot were 2 American Pipits. There was no sign of 
the Common Ground-Dove but I did not put much effort into looking, so there is 
a good chance it is still hanging in. 


Later, a brief cruise by Baisley Pond in Queens, I noted several Redheads so 
they are back and building up. The pond is pretty open so waterfowl have plenty 
of room to hide. A decent number of Northern Shovelers continue for this time 
of the year with the other winter arrivals like Ring-necked Ducks. 


Eric Miller called in to report that the Wilson's Warbler at Kissena Park 
continued at least through yesterday. It apparently has been around since 
November 11th according Stephane Perrault's eBird report from the 15th of 
November (http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S20558882) 


This is a good find and coupled with Eric's Black-and-white Warbler from 
Kissena Corridor on Sat November 15th, is a good reminder to keep checking all 
those micro habitat spots that have in the past held winter goodies. 


Cheers,

From: "Robert A. Proniewych" <baobabbob AT gmail.com>

The Common Ground Dove continues at the West End II, parking lot in the
northeast section of Jones Beach State Park. The bird was walking in the
first row of parking stalls not on the grass and its tail has grown in. An
American Pipit was also seen walking around in the same area.

Date: Mon, 17 Nov 2014 15:43:35 -0500
The Ivory Gull on the Niagara River has been retracted as a leucistic
Bonaparte's Gull.  This happens every few years - leucistic Bonies are seen
most years lately.

Good birding!

Subject: Queens County Bird Club Inc. - Upcoming Meeting Info - Douglas Futuyma presents "Evolution for Birders: A Guide for the Perplexed"
From: Nancy Tognan <nancy.tognan AT gmail.com>
Date: Mon, 17 Nov 2014 09:23:17 -0500
 

The *Queens County Bird Club Inc.* will be meeting at the Alley Pond
Environmental Center, 228-06 Northern Blvd Douglaston, NY 11362
 >Map of location<  

at 8pm on Wednesday, November 19, 2014{ the third Wednesday of the month} 

Our speaker will be Prof. Douglas Futuyma, presenting "Evolution for
Birders: A Guide for the Perplexed"

     Birders frequently face questions that fall within the province of
evolutionary science. What are species? Are they real or arbitrary? How
confident can we be about which species belong in which families? Why do
some species have 'phases' or 'morphs'? What accounts for odd geographic
distributions of some families? Professor Futuyma will talk about some of
these and other issues, and will open the floor to discuss any questions
about the evolution and ecology of birds that audience members may wish to
raise.

     Douglas Futuyma is Distinguished Professor of Ecology and Evolution at
Stony Brook University and the author of two standard college textbooks,
'Evolutionary Biology' and 'Evolution,' as well as a popular classic,
'Science on Trial: The Case for Evolution.' He has received numerous awards
for his teaching and for his research, including in 2012 the Joseph Leidy
Award for Research Achievement given by the Academy of Natural Sciences. He
has been a Guggenheim Fellow and a Fulbright Fellow, has served as president
of the Society for the Study of Evolution, the American Society of
Naturalists, and the American Institute of Biological Sciences, and was
elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1996 and the
National Academy of Sciences in 2006.Non-members and guests are invited to
join us for our meetings featuring noted guest speakers and to join us on
our renowned field trips.

I neglected to include the sighting of an adult Peregrine Falcon feeding on
what seem to be large prey on the upper ledge (e/s) of the Jones Beach
Tower. I had seen the bird fly in, without anything in it's talons. I
couldn't make out the ID of the prey from the ground, but a closer look of
the photos at home showed it probably to be the remains of a Black Duck,
with wings detached, standing upright and away from the body.

Cheers,
Bob

Subject: Long day...good day !
From: robert adamo <radamo4691 AT gmail.com>
Date: Sun, 16 Nov 2014 23:29:56 -0500
Today's full day of birding (the first for me in quite awhile) started with
much promise, but came up a bit short.

While being part of a large group of "unhappy campers" looking for the
Cassin's Kingbird seen yesterday at Floyd Bennett Field, Brooklyn, I did
get to see single Cooper's & Red-tailed Hawks, as well as ~ 15 E.Bluebirds,
short of the 39-40 seen by some.

I then tried for the C.Ground Dove at W.End 2, Jones Beach, and saw it,
thanks to the Queens County Bird Club folks out on a scheduled field trip.

Heading toward home, I routed myself through Dune Rd., Westhampton Beach in
hope of finding the White-winged Dove found by Dave Klauber & Bobby Rosetti
this morning. Once again, the target bird remained elusive, but getting
down to Dune Rd., enabled me to find FOS Pine Siskin (4-5) and A.Bittern.

Cheers,
Bob

From: Andrew Baksh <birdingdude AT gmail.com>

There were birders hard at work diligently searching FBF from the first light. 
I left the scene of the crime around 1:15 pm crossing the bridge over to Fort 
Tilden where I searched that area as well as Riis Park, until about 3:30 p.m. 
when I finally conceded that the bird was elsewhere. 


My only consolation for lots of walking today was a Parasitic Jaeger seen off 
of Fort Tilden during a late seawatch. There were loads of gulls off shore at 
Tilden dominated by Laughing Gulls with ample numbers of Bonaparte Gulls in the 
mix. Many Laughing Gulls were moving west with small flocks of Black and Surf 
scoters. When I departed Tilden, the Gull flock had thickened but were further 
offshore. 


Good effort by all who came out to FBF today and put in the work!

Jones Beach West End 16 Nov

There were both BLACK and WHITE-WINGED SCOTERS moving both east and west along 
the ocean. A male HARLEQUIN DUCK was at the end of the jetty. (Another 
Harlequin was reported from the Pt. Lookout side.) A flotilla of fishing boats 
was out on the horizon surrounded by a feeding frenzy of hundreds of sea birds 
too far out to ID, but presumably Gulls. Some GANNETS were closer in. 


In the median, PINE SISKIN, EASTERN GOLDFINCH and a few PURPLE FINCHES were 
feeding on pine cones. As reported earlier, the COMMON GROUND-DOVE continues.

The first Snowy Owl of the season made its appearance today almost immediately 
followed by the first idiot with a camera who spooked the bird. Some where 
between Brooklyn and Montauk Pt. This is for the record only.

Subject: FW: White-winged Dove - Dune Road, East Quogue (Suffolk)
From: David Klauber <davehawkowl AT msn.com>
Date: Sun, 16 Nov 2014 14:16:16 -0500
An update on the dove. Derek saw it in the same location about 30 minutes after 
posting. This was also east of the Beach Lane bridge. Shortly after Pat 
Palladino saw it at the original location, then followed it as it flew about 
1/4 mile west and also landed on a telephone wire. I believe this would have 
been just east of the Beach Lane bridge. 

Other birds of note were Orange-crowned Warbler in the scrub north of where an 
orange house is being built, 3 Ipswich Sparrows, and American Bittern.

After an exhaustive search since dawn this morning Heydi Lopes and I are 
finally throwing in the towel. Unfortunately we never relocated the kingbird. 


Good birding,

A bit of a miscommunication with Dave on the doves location. Here is some 
accurate info from Dave: 


"White winged dove by welcome to westhampton beach sign. East of Jessup lane 
bridge." 


In other interesting news there is a massive flock of Bonaparte's Gulls, with 
other mixed gull species, feeding in the wake of what appear to be Fin Whales 
about a mile or two off the beach at Smith Point. They are frustratingly 
distant but a heck of a sight nonetheless.
