Shorebird monitoring at Big Egg Marsh...

After the Oceanside visit, I decided to make a late afternoon run over to Big Egg Marsh in Queens NY, to do some Shorebird monitoring. I have been doing the shorebird monitoring as part of my contribution to the IWASH (Improving Wetland Accessibility for Shorebirds and Horseshoe crabs) project for NYC Audubon. My observation took place from 5:45 PM to 7:45 PM. During that time I recorded and counted the following species: Willet (20), Semiplamated Sandpiper (50+), Least Sandpiper (8), Semipalmated Plovers (6), Killdeer (2), Oystercatcher (1) and Ruddy Turnstones (100 +).
