I can’t believe I spotted another one of these emails. Is this going to 
continue until it is snowy outside. At least another little stint of nonsense. 
Maybe greater, maybe lesser.  Definitely not common to see such humor on this 
list serve, but I’ve got to get back to work. I’m very tied up at the moment 
(practically ringed in knots) and green with envy at those who have time to 
continue this line of wandering chit-chat. 


Sorry - that’s five minutes of my life - and two of yours - that none of us are 
getting back. Will stop trying to find another use of semipalmated in a 
sentence now. 


Thanks,

Yes, All this sniping can get ruff (I suppose it could be courser, but that 
really would be out of order, murre or less anyway). If you take this thing too 
far you could end up Alle alone – solitary – or else get shoved and fall down 
on your Cox’s.
 
In any case, be careful of the changing weather out there on the flats – the 
sun is bright now so you should wear sunscreen to avoid red shanks or swollen, 
thick knees – but in case it gets cold and windy you’ll want to a plover (your 
own or something you’ve Least) – but even then be careful, if it’s very loose 
clothing (i.e., not a windbreaker but a garment you’d Calidris) you’re taking a 
risk, since the wind can blow it off altogether, leaving you Baird.
 
Okay, enough piping up, not another peep, but there are so many others, willet 
ever end?

Now that we’ve baird our best shorebird puns, perhaps the discussion can move

Hi Steve,

 

Whenever, I see “hybrid” in any reports I am always tempted to immediately take 
a peep. Despite looking at the images from the field on my phone I have to 
respectfully disagree with the “presumed” hybrid call on the bird you 
referenced. 

 

This to me, is just a Semipalmated Sandpiper (SESA). I agree it is  a tad 
heavily marked below but nothing in the structure or bill is suggestive of a 
Western hybrid with a SESA.


 

I certainly claim no expertise; however, my time having Semipalmated Sandpipers 
in the hand and field observations, I have learned to appreciate variation in 
plumage and size. The plumage on this bird in my opinion is within the range of 
just a straight up Semipalmated Sandpiper.

 

When I have a chance, I will take a look on a bigger screen and perhaps provide 
more details.

 

Cheers,

--------

I’ve posted pictures of an interesting Calidris sandpiper that has been on the 
East Pond at Jamaica Bay. It was first photographed by Peter Post on Saturday 
and observed by Kevin Karlson (co-author of The Shorebird Guide). I was able to 
relocate and photograph the bird on Sunday, then discuss it with Kevin. He’s of 
the opinion that it’s a hybrid between Western and Semipalmated Sandpipers. In 
simplest terms, he described it as having the upperparts of a Semipalmated and 
the underparts of a Western. The bird is extensively marked underneath, not 
only along the flanks, but on the belly. Semipalmated would never be like that. 
And actually, neither species should be so extensively marked this late. The 
bill looks like that of a Semipalmated, while the head shows a squared look 
more typical of a Western. Pictures can be seen at my web site 
http://stevewalternature.com/  under Birds, Recent Work.     

 

For the record, other weekend birds at Jamaica Bay other than the much 
ballyhooed Hudsonian Godwit, include 1 Caspian Tern on the pond Saturday and 2 
fly bys Sunday, at least one juvenile Western Sandpiper both days, many 
White-rumped Sandpipers, and Stilt Sandpiper now starting to appear in the 
juvenile form. A Common Raven was seen by many, soaring over the visitor center 
Saturday.

 

The water level is decidedly on the high side, but there’s enough room for 
birds and people. Getting to the raunt requires walking through water in 
places. Note that the safest passage is sometimes well away from the edge of 
the pond. There are two deeper puddles that reach the phragmites in the 
southeast corner. Do not walk along their edges. And also watch out for the 
Salt Marsh Fleabane, if you can. These plants are in full bloom now and adding 
a touch of beauty to the pond. And if you pay close enough attention to the 
bright pink flowers, you just might be rewarded with the sight of a Salt Marsh 
Skipper.
