Jones Beach West End, Shirley Marina: Black Necked Stilt, Little Blue Herons
After seeing reports of a Black Necked Stilt I headed over to Shirley Marina where I able to briefly view the bird before it disappeared. (lifer) I wasn't able to get a photo until I returned later before sunset when the Black Necked Stilt was out and active. Also seen were my "lifer" Little Blue Herons - I've seen them before but not in actual blue plumage, but saw 2 full blue ones in the marsh. Also saw a Saltmarsh Sparrow by the parking lot.
