Again today, more than 40 Great Egrets in the area. Fewer shorebirds......a single Black-bellied Plover, up to 20 Semipalmated Plovers, and small mixed flock of Least and Semi Sandpipers, and four or five Yellowlegs.
At Rock River in Highgate on Rte 7, a really blue-green algae day. The algae was drifting directly into Rock River, and was fairly heavy all along the shoreline there. There were 5 Greater Yellowlegs, 3 Lesser Yellowlegs, about ten Killdeer and a single Least Sandpiper, all feeding in that toxic looking algae.
