I was kind of all over the place today, but I decided early that for some reason I wanted to check out Morningside Park. I thought the Kayak was away for the season, but I got it out again. I was surprised at how birdy the place still was. The Great Egret is still there. Its getting late for that one. As I kayaked around, I noticed many shorebird tracks on the mud flats. Since we had had much rain since my last visit, I was sure I had missed something good. Not really. Once I reached the last mud flat, there were the shorebirds. Three Killdeer, two Lesser Yelllowlegs and two Pectoral Sandpipers. An American Pipit was there as well. Great Blue Herons and Double-crested Cormorants rounded out the list. It was kind of nice to be out there again. Maybe the kayaking isn’t over yet.
