A very busy day with some great birds!

My really distant shots of three of the four Baird's Sandpipers.

This morning, Gordon and Lori Lam met me on Turtle Bay Road to try for the BAIRD’S SANDPIPERS. We immediately ran into Bruce Nott who was already on the birds! Thanks Bruce! All four birds were present, having just flown in from the Warren Sod Farm where they had been being viewed just minutes earlier. From there, we headed to the Bashakill in response to word from Scott Baldinger that there had been an overnight fallout at the Bash. At the Nature Trail, a great group of birders gathered to see what we could find. Scott Baldinger, Marie Loukeris, Linda Scrima, Diane Bliss, Bob and Mary Wexler all joined us for a really nice movement of birds. The only problem was that there were so many and they were moving so fast through the still dense canopy that many went unidentified. What we did have was nice! Black and White, Magnolia, Black-throated Green, Black-throated Blue, Blue-winged, Chestnut-sided, Blackburnian, Canada Warblers, American Redstart, Northern Parula and Common Yellowthroat were all seen by me. Others in the group also reported Tennessee, Wilsons, Ovenbird, Pine and Prairie Warblers. Three Vireos were see by me and Scott had a Philadelphia Vireo before we arrived. Also on the Bash in the marsh this morning were two Common Gallinules, a Great Egret and a Northern Harrier. A very nice morning!

    It was a great day of birding and experiencing the overnight fall-out at the Bash. I am glad that we had many “eyes” to locate all the birds that were moving through!
