Jones Beach West End: Horned Grebes

I arrived at Jones Beach Field 10/ fishing docks in the afternoon with my son -  highlights were 3 Bonaparte Gulls and a White Winged Scoter.  The Coast Guard area had the usual winter waterfowl and a Peregrine Falcon was perched on the tower above the Coast Guard building.  We took a walk around Short Beach and at the end found about a dozen Black Bellied Plover, several Surf Scoters and 3 Horned Grebes close to shore (my FOS)  Northern Harriers were seen here and there between West End and Field 6.
