[cayugabirds-l] Myers shorebirds

2019-08-28 Thread Jay McGowan
A little late now, but the morning rains brought a small fallout of
shorebirds to the spit at Myers Point, which included a very
rare-for-the-county juvenile STILT SANDPIPER, along with a Sanderling and
other more expected species. Unfortunately, most of the birds departed
around 8:30 and did not seem to return. Checklist here:

I checked the point again this evening and found the adult Sanderling still
present and joined by a second individual, this one a crisp juvenile, along
with two Semipalmated Plovers and three Semipalmated Sandpipers. Today was
a welcome change after a long stretch with almost no shorebirds at the park
over the last few weeks.

Nice little assortment of shorebirds on the spit at Myers now: two Least
Sandpipers, three Semipalmated Sandpipers, two Dunlin, and a Semipalmated
Plover.

When I left at 8:15 five species of shorebirds (1 each) shared the mud  gravel island in Salmon Creek by Myers Point:Killdeer (plus 1 or 2 others elsewhere around the park)Lesser YellowlegsPectoral SandpiperSemipalmated SandpiperLeast SandpiperOn the spit a Common Tern rested on the beach, while Ring-billed, Herring, and Great Black-backed Gulls rested elsewhere on the point. Earlier the Common Tern had been flying about foraging or perched on a bit of wood which stuck out of the water.Other fun birds included an immature Caspian Tern, Osprey, Belted Kingfisher, Eastern Kingbird, female Baltimore Oriole, and 10 Hooded Mergansers.Birders included Chris Wood, Stuart Krasnoff, and arriving as I left, a photographer whose name I forget. --Dave Nutter
