[cayugabirds-l] Meyers Pt.

2014-10-28 Thread William Roberts
I waited in vain from 4:00 - 6:30 pm this afternoon for the Purple Sandpiper's return. Even though the lighting was ideal for photography the only occupants on the point were a handful (30-35) of R-bGs and a pair of Mallards. Bill Roberts Aurora --

I was at Myers Point for half an hour starting at 7:55am, and Jason Huck was there for much of that time. We had no luck with the Purple Sandpiper. The only shorebird I saw was a KILLDEER on the island in Salmon Creek. Other highlights were a low northbound flock of DOUBLE-CRESTED CORMORANTS

A few of us were at Myers Pt. around 1 PM and saw no Purple Sandpiper, either. Donna Scott - Original Message - From: William Roberts To: cayugabirds-l@cornell.edu Sent: Tuesday, October 28, 2014 9:15 PM Subject: [cayugabirds-l] Meyers Pt. I waited in vain from 4:00 - 6:30

Daughter Becky I saw it last evening for 1/2 hr. until it was too dark to see more. Diana Whiting I had been there before noon watched it. Diana took lots of pix. When Becky got off workat 5 p.m. I took her back to Myers she was delighted to see it. Perhaps we were the last to see it.Coming
