I went back out this morning to check Morningside Park for shorebirds. Though there is little habitat at this time of year, there was always a chance something might have put down. Though there were only two tiny strip islands, there were an abundance of birds! 2 BLACK-BELLIED PLOVER, 2 SEMIPALMATED PLOVER, 2 DUNLIN, 8 SHORT-BILLED DOWITCHERS, 20 LEAST SANDPIPERS, 10 SEMIPALMATED SANDPIPERS and a single Killdeer! More than twice as many birds than at the Apollo Plaza in just a fraction of the habitat! Once again I called Arlene Borko and Scott Baldinger. They both got over to see all the great shorebirds! What a morning!
