A flock of 11 Whimbrels touched down on a flats along the Hudson/Mohawk
junction in Cohoes (near Albany), New York at about 6:20 AM, Aug. 2nd.
Then - a flock of 10 flew by Piermont Pier on the Hudson River in Rockland
County, NY (~120 miles from Cohoes) at about 9:40 AM same day.
My son reports unusual numbers along the south shore of Lake Ontario and at
the Niagara River in western, New York State.
Seems to be Whimbrel moving day.
