7/16. Stratford, Long Beach - while conducting a Piping Plover survey, I came upon (1:00pm) two adult BONAPARTE'S GULLS in full breeding plumage, surface-feeding at water's edge along 3rd beach section west from lot. ( fee for non-residents).
Also all 5 species of Swallows, including 1 CLIFF, migrating west down beach this morning.
Also 7 species of shorebirds, including my first migrant southbound Sanderlings.
