January 1 - New Year Birding of Last Year's birds

Today we went out to Long Island, starting at Lido Beach where we saw a couple of hundred Common Eider, along with 5 Harlequin Ducks as the notable species.

We next visited Jones Beach West End but found that to be quiet except for the waterfowl

We then went to see the rarities of Cassin's Kingbird at Floyd Bennet Field in Brooklyn, and made a stop for the Couch's Kingbird in Manhattan's West Village.

Finally back in New Jersey, we saw a Cackling Goose at the Ramsey Golf Course
