Saturday, February 19, 2011 Breezy Point

I went with my friend out to Breezy Point last Saturday. It had been ages since I had been out birding or even out much. But boy was it breezy. We walked along the bay side for a bit but there weren't many birds about (they were smarter than us:). Then we walked for a sahorter time on the ocean side. Saw a few sanderlings. The wind was blowing sand which made for some pretty beach sand patterns. I waited for some crashing waves and shot a couple of pictures. Later we walked along the bay beach closest to the gate. I didn't take my camera that time. We saw some common mergansers, american black ducks and buffleheads. It was great to see birds!
