Today was a 3 😆😉😊 day for us ! The first occurred in Mineola when the Chaminade J.V. Football Team beat St.Francis Prep. Our #3 grandson, sophomore Brendan Connors, plays right guard on the offensive line...and does a good job !
The 2nd took place in Garden City while enjoying a celebratory family lunch, and yes, Brendan sure had worked up an appetite ! The 3rd happened back in Riverhead, when, after dropping off my non-birding wife at home, I checked all the sod farms located between Route 105 on the east and Osborn Ave to the west. The only one that had any shorebirds was the Delea field, on the s/s of Sound Ave, about half way between Doctors Path and Roanoke Ave. Actively feeding were 8 large plovers, which I took to be Black-bellied, 4 Least Sandpipers and 3 Buff-breasted Sandpipers - the time was ~ 1700-1730.
