While looking at feeding groups of Red and White-winged Crossbills, we spied a late American Golden Plover feeding in the median just east of Field 8. The count period for the Captree CBC starts tomorrow. Perhaps (however unlikely) the bird will stay till Sunday. Attempts to turn the bird into a Pacific or European Golden Plover were unsuccessful.
A photo of the bird can be seen at http//www.flickr.com/photos/kfeustel/ Ken & Sue Feustel -- NYSbirds-L List Info: http://www.NortheastBirding.com/NYSbirdsWELCOME http://www.NortheastBirding.com/NYSbirdsRULES http://www.NortheastBirding.com/NYSbirdsSubscribeConfigurationLeave.htm ARCHIVES: 1) http://firstname.lastname@example.org/maillist.html 2) http://www.surfbirds.com/birdingmail/Group/NYSBirds-L 3) http://birdingonthe.net/mailinglists/NYSB.html Please submit your observations to eBird: http://ebird.org/content/ebird/ --
