I’ve been lazy in my blogging and haven’t managed to get to my trip out to Montauk last weekend other than a brief post on the awesomeness that is a Brown Pelican in New York State. So rather than get into all the nitty gritties of what the seawatching was like out at Montauk Point I thought I would just share some photos of the birds that Seth Ausubel and I spotted. Sadly left unphotographed were the hordes of Black-legged Kittiwakes…but I think some of the other birds were pretty good too.
Away we go!
Distant Northern Gannets are nice.
Northern Gannets that fly over your head while you are standing on land are even nicer.
I like Common Eiders.
Do you see both loons in this photo of distant White-winged Scoters?
Red-throated Loons are boring in basic plumage.
This is a horrific picture but a Cave Swallow in December is a good bird.
I hope this post wasn’t too boring. I’ll make it up tomorrow, I promise!
