Observations

  1. Number observed: 45

  3. Number observed: 10
  4. Larus sp.

    Number observed: 200
  5. Number observed: 1
  6. Number observed: 9

    Comments: *Brooklyn all time high count. Could have been as few as 9. Five seen ~11:15 AM, then drifted off to the S/SE. An hour later, Nine approached the center of the cemetery from the SE, and then hung around the northern and western part of the cemetery for at least 20 minutes, flying quite low. Further efforts by others around 1 PM failed to reveal them. It appears that there is one bird in each group with a portion of the inner primaries missing in roughly the same location on the same wing, so I am guessing that the later nine included the earlier five (unfortunately resolution of the photos of that bird from the second flock is not good).
