Late afternoon Sunday, Aug. 29, at Harkness Memorial State Park, a Whimbrel flew to the edge of the marsh in the inlet that is to the west of the lawn. It rested near a gull group, preening itself for quite a while. In the inlet also was a flock of approximately 30 Double-crested Cormorants, 2 Great Egrets, 4 Snowy Egrets, a Least Tern and a Common Tern. Later, a flock of approximately 200 Laughing Gulls roamed the front lawn hunting insects in the grass. I don't remember seeing any gulls hawking insects in the air.
