Still out in the field at Big Stony while everyone awaits a report of “good news”, anticipating the raising of sunken fishing vessel “All for Joy”.

Meanwhile, my joyous moment was to document at approximately 2 p.m. today, March 29—“on the dot”—the arrival AND landing of returning American oystercatcher pair! Time will tell if the two also include Sanctuary of Sands territory. As far as I know, there are 5 individual birds West End, Fishers Island.

*Please continue to help support and sustain critical habitat.
