January 8 - Ocean/Monmouth County birding

Out with Bill E. today and we made our first stop at Barnegat Lighthouse.  Here we quickly found a Razorbill in the channel.  Later we saw the expected Harlequin Ducks along with Purple Sandpipers, Ruddy Turnstones, and Dunlin.  We also got quick views of a female King Eider amongst all of the Common Eiders here
