August 18 - Robert Moses State Park Seawatch

With just a few hours free today, friends Andy, Jen, Bill and I went out east to Robert Moses State Park's Field 2 for a seawatch as the winds were from the east.  Our decision paid off as we saw up to 2 dozen of the Cory's Shearwaters, with a handful or more coming quite close.

We struck out on getting any other shearwaters species today, although we did have a single Northern Gannet, along with the expected Common Terns and other regulars.
