6/27 - Westport -Compo Cove/Old Mill Beach -75+ BLACK-CROWNED NIGHT-HERONS,many GREAT & SNOWY EGRETS,1 First Summer LAUGHING GULL,COMMON & LEAST TERNS feeding on sand eels


              Grays Creek/Longshore Park - 2 adult YELLOW-CROWNED NIGHT-HERONS


          Southport-Southport Beach-1 adult breeding LAUGHING GULL,25+ BLACK-CROWNED NIGHT-HERONS


      Black-crowned Night-herons were the "bird of the day".The group at Old Mill Beach was the largest number in one small area that I have seen in the last three years.I estimate seeing a total of 150+ adult birds in all the different locations I checked this morning in the Westport area and that's being conservative.These birds appear to be doing especially well this year.At the same time,I have not seen as many Little Blue Herons in Westport compared to last year.
