Another crazy day for me today! It was however highlighted with a quick trip to Wallkill River NWR where I met Kathy Ashman, Mary Buskey and Bruce Nott. They were already viewing a group of shorebirds when I arrived. A Pectoral Sandpiper, a flock of Least Sandpipers, and my target bird, BAIRD’S SANDPIPER! It didn’t last long, within five minutes of arriving, two Northern Harriers flushed the shorebirds. At least I had some nice views and a few shots. I then went over to the Winding Waters area where the group had had an Olive-sided Flycatcher earlier. Unfortunately, I was unable to relocate it. I left happy with my sandpiper! Thanks Kathy for keeping us posted about this bird!
