Last night went down to Brilyea and we were treated to very few
shorebirds. All of them appeared on the East Branch with two milling
around on the far side from the parking lot. A few others flew throughA
half dozen or so Solitary Sandpipers came in right next to the parking lot
and provided brief but excellent views. Only one Great Egret and less than
20 Great Blue Herons. The Black-crowned Night Herons are still hanging
around in small numbers.
Today on the way to work coming North on Route 7, just pass the Nordic Farm
in Charlotte there were at least a dozen Cattle Egrets very close to the
road. A great way to start the day!
