Morningside Park – Pectoral Sandpiper continues

Karen Miller joined me for a time this morning at Morningside Park. The shorebird numbers remained relatively unchanged since yesterday. The Pectoral Sandpiper continues, quite confiding when you are kayaking, but easily seen from shore if you view from the fence near the pavilion. Great Blue Herons were initially the only waders seen this morning, but I returned a bit later to check one last time and the Great Egret had returned. I had no Green Herons here today, but had two at a nearby small pond. For some reason, once again there was nothing at Apollo other than the Osprey.

    Hey John, I had 8 Killdeer this morning at Apollo between 7:30 – 8:15 four where wading and the others where just hanging on the pavement.

    • HI Kevin,     Thanks for checking out the Apollo.  I don’t know what has happened (just happenstance) but for some reason, ever since I posted my great day last week, there have been few birds there. Morningside has been better, though below normal as well.  I heard you are going to go down to the falls at Wolf Brook.  Hope you have a great day, its beautiful down there!  Thanks for keeping in touch, John

    John, where is Morningside Park?

    • Peter,      Morningside Park is in Loch Sheldrake and is easily found on any Sullivan County map.  If you were to pick up a copy of my book, “A Birding Guide to Sullivan County”  directions to any site I might mention would be in there.  Also, it would have the added advantage of supporting the Bashakill Area Association since all proceeds go directly to them.  Just look it up on their web site  Good luck!  John
