Shorebird Update, 8/31/15

~One of 3 Wilson’s Snipe at 6 1/2 Station Sanctuary, 8/31/15.~

QUICK POST: Here’s a list of the shorebirds I had tonight at 6 1/2 Station Road Sanctuary. I got my first Orange County Wilson’s Snipe of the season and my first Greater Yellowlegs for the season at the sanctuary. Numbers are serious guesstimates, as it’s tough to keep count while going back and forth from the Citgo Pond Trail and the Heritage Trail (both myself and the birds!):

Killdeer 10
Greater Yellowlegs 2
Lesser Yellowlegs 4
Solitary Sandpiper 2
Least Sandpiper 35
Wilson’s Snipe 3
