11/23/14, Madison, Hammonasset Beach State Park, Meig's point jetty, moraine
trail, and nature center parking lot. Sea ducks were not in abundance this
morning, but with some patience and perseverance, we saw ten of the species
we discussed before looking out into the sound and bay. Highlights were: a
flock of 5 Black Scoter that flew in, landed briefly, then continued west, 3
Surf Scoter, Long-tailed Duck, Horned Grebe, Common Goldeneye, and several
Red-throated Loon, including a juvenile. Notable non-waterfowl sightings
included: Northern Gannet, Semipalmated Plover (late date), Purple
Sandpiper, and Lapland Longspur. Full report on ebird.
