Queens County Bird Club 4th Annual Big Sit. I was there the entire time, Matthieu Benoit was there for almost all of the time, Lisa Scheppke, Seth Ausubel, Mary Normandia, Tripper Paul, Daisy Paul, and Chuck Hendriks were there for portions of the day. We were also joined by a variety of other people on the Littoral Society Field Trip and random folks visiting the platform.

The day started with the wind light out of the south but by the end of the day winds were 15-20 mph from the south. Despite the contrary winds there were a surprising number of birds around, though we did not have morning flight and very little raptor migration, with Merlin being the only "raptor" that seems to be actively migrating.
