A Few Shorebirds at Morningside

IMG_7337

In a season that has thus far produced no shorebirds to speak of here in Sullivan County, this morning there were a few shorebirds at Morningside Park.  Winds had changed to northwest overnight, and it brought a few birds into the area.  Twenty Least Sandpipers, two Spotted Sandpipers, two Solitary Sandpipers and a single Semipalmated Plover were all seen this morning! While only twenty five individuals, that is by far the most we have seen this fall.  Hopefully this means that many more good shorebirds are still to come.  The habitat at Morningside is excellent and the islands are increasing in size and number each day.  I’ll keep you posted!
