We then drove to Avalon for our target bird Northern Bobwhite - I figured at the very least it was worth a visit since Mike had never been there. We didn't see any Bobwhites, but did see an Orchard Oriole fly by, the nesting Comorants and a Black Crowned Night Heron down a small turtle
I stopped by Seatuck to try my luck for Bobwhites -I found about 50 chicks but they were in a cage - I guess waiting to be released so I can't count those. A quick drive down by Robert Moses was rewarded with a nie view of a Barn Swallow.
