Thanks for the report. And Thank you Tina for leading. Well done.
I just want to add that about 6-7 of us went to Burying Hill Beach immediately
afterward, and we did see the adult LESSER BLACK-BACKED GULL (close views). We
then went back to Sherwood to assist Phil Asprelli's non-starting car. In the
process, we saw a flock of 5-6 Savannah Sparrows.
We then went to the west end of the Millpond (Hillspoint Rd), and failed to
locate the Eurasian Wigeon, but did have a Belted Kingfisher.
