Jones Beach, Robert Moses, Lake Capri, Nissequogue
Despite a dreary rainy day I was able to see some notable birds, The biggest surprise of the day was 23 Red Knots bathing in a puddle at the Jones Beach Coast Guard Station. Red Breasted Mergansers were by Short Beach. I stopped by Lake Capri only for a minute to look for the Tufted Duck - I didn't do a decent search since it was cold and raning but did manage to find a Redhead, American Black Ducks and Scaup. At Nissequogue where the river meets Long Island Sound I saw a couple of Long Tailed Ducks.
