At Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge, East Pond south end, early this afternoon were three Long-billed Dowtichers and a still decently colored Hudsonian Godwit. The only other shorebirds in sight here were Lesser Yellowlegs. Pretty good quality for the little quantity. I did not check the north end, so I can't say whether the Avocets are still around. Also at the south end, two Snow Geese are in.
