Highlights for May:
Worm Eating Warbler
Le Conte's Sparrow
All of those were lifers for me!
Now, leaving the school year behind us, on June 6th I made a quick stop at Montrose Point with hopes for a rare shorebird that was reported earlier in the morning, the Red Knot. With just a quick binocular scan across the beach, I found the bird feeding with a flock of SEMIPALMATED SANDPIPERS, a shorebird that is much more common and half the size of the Knot. I was able to photograph the bird from just a few feet away! What a beautiful shorebird!
