Montauk, Hamptons, East End: Black Guillemot

There has been a continuing Black Guillemot in Montauk Lake as well as a Little Gull and Black Headed Gull at Ditch Plains.  The Little Gull had not been seen the day before but the Black Guillemot was so I figured I had a good chance of at least one lifer.  I saw the Black Guillemot (lifer #340) and got close to it by driving to the other side of Montauk Lake.  I stopped at a couple places looking for reported birds on the way back but seemed to miss them.  I had some consolation sightings of other birds so it still was a good day overall.  Highlights:

Montauk Lake: Black Guillemot, Common Goldeneye, Common Loons, Tree Sparrows
Deep Hollow Ranch: Blue morph Snow Goose
Ditch Plains: Bonaparte Gulls, Purple Sandpipers
Fort Pond: Redhead
Wainscott Pond: Sandhill Crane
Riverhead: Turkey Vultures
Swan Lake Preserve: Green Winged Teal, Great Blue Heron
Jones Beach: heard a Woodcock calling
