11/20 Madison, Hammonassett Beach S.P., early afternoon- The YELLOW-BREASTED
CHAT provided stunning views as it worked its way slowly down the thicket
(campground playground area), to the delight of many birders and photographers.
Off Meigs Point we saw: 2-3 NORTHERN GANNETS, 14 Red-throated Loons (many of
which were migrating SW), 3 female COMMON EIDERS, 1 female BLACK SCOTER, 1 unid.
"dark-winged" Scoter, two small flocks of shorebirds - Sanderlings and Ruddy
Turnstones, and 1 GRAY SEAL.
