|Baird's Sandpiper at Floyd Field in Brooklyn NY|
However, my first post since back in NY is of, you guessed it "shorebirds". It was a gamble I took on traveling out of town during the shorebird migration season, but I had no choice with the dates, so I bit the bullet and went. It meant, that I was anxious to get back into "shorebirding" and that is exactly what I did.
My first outing on Saturday after my morning walk at Van Courtlandt in the Bronx, took me to Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn, where I went in search of a previously reported Baird's Sandpiper. I found the target bird feeding in and around small shallow pools that were on the runway East of the cricket field.
