Little happening


Our two weeks of fabulous birding came to an abrupt halt this week.  There has been little movement of anything.  Shorebirds continue to move through the area, but they are all basically the common species.  Nothing exciting since Matt Zeitler’s Whimbrel.  Even the waders have dropped off considerably.  In an amazing twist to the Roseate Spoonbill saga, the bird has apparently shown up in Quebec, Canada!  An astonishing first record for them, and much to their delight!  There is one new bird in Sullivan County, my dear “Frenemy”  the Merlin has returned to Morningside Park.  Its either him, or there is another one that doesn’t mind me kayaking up to him and taking a zillion photos.  Maybe this year he’ll hit the road quicker than last (TWO MONTHS!). I wish I had more, but that’s all folks!
