When leaving the Jones Beach West End, I saw another raptor but couldn't positively ID it - it was moving fast and trying to take a picture while driving isn't always easy : ) - the few photos I got were good enough for a positive ID of a Red Shouldered Hawk - a lifer for me!
Not much going on at Wantagh Park, but there were a lot of Brant and an Oystercatcher.
Tackapausha had a few noisy Redwing Blackbirds and a distant Red Tailed Hawk.
I checked out the Brady Park Pond and saw 1 or 2 Double Crested Comorants.
