Happy to see last weeks lone
Black-bellied plover now has a traveling companion…

Shorebird Reunion

Shorebird Reunion!

,

I sat within the tidal pools along what I love to call Sanctuary of Sands west end; parallel to the runway here on Fishers Island. So happy to “report” what certainly appeared to me as an increase in this spring’s shorebird activity. Breeding and non-breeding plumage is visible on Ruddy turnstone, Killdeer and Black-bellied plover standing “Sentinel”.

** Please be mindful and leash dogs during this precious nesting time.
