Things picking up a bit!

This morning I birded Apollo Plaza, Morningside Park and Sullivan County Community College. There was some movement of shore birds overnight. At Apollo not much changed. One Lesser Yellowlegs continues and about ten Killdeer. At Morningside, things were a bit better. Yesterdays six Least Sandpipers were joined by another seven. Nine adults/four juveniles. One Semipalmated Plover and one Semipalmated Sandpiper were new. Two each of Killdeer and Spotted Sandpiper were also present. At the College there were nearly Forty Killdeer. This is the best count in a couple of weeks. This is a good sign as we move into August with the promise of our best numbers of the season.
Our first Semipalmated Sandpiper in nearly two weeks, but still a transitioning adult bird.
