LONG ISLAND, MONTAUK POINT & JAMAICA BAY, NY

SEABIRDS, SONGBIRDS & VAGRANTS
2 November 2017 - 7 November 2017, 6 days & 5 nights

Lots of good birding at Montauk Point will produce eiders, all three scoters, gannets, loons, and grebes, plus give us excellent opportunities for alcids, kittiwakes, jaegers, and even a few shearwaters. On a past tour we had FOUR Parasitic Jaegers in less than an hour. Hope for an east wind! There are typically some unusual gulls in the area, and vagrant sparrows, warblers, and flycatchers can sometimes be found. On our way to and from Montauk we will visit many additional Long Island locations such as Jamaica Bay, Shinnecock Inlet, Point Lookout, Jones Beach, and Sagaponack Pond. Here we may add Eurasian Wigeon, Northern Saw-whet Owl, Harlequin Duck, American Bittern, Snowy Owl, and Northern Shrike. Rarities from past tours have included Northern Lapwing, Yellow-billed Loon, Sandhill Crane, Varied Thrush, Dickcissel, Lark Sparrow, Pink-footed Goose, and Tufted Duck. We stay in Montauk for three of our five nights, with great dinners at the Shagwong Inn and O'Murphy's Pub. We will take a maximum of seven participants. On rare occasion we may extend the maximum to ten participants. Bob Schutsky is the scheduled leader.

Price: $2085.00 from Lancaster, PA, or from our motel near JFK Airport, Queens, Long Island
