The answer to shorebird quiz # 2, is that there are two species in the photo. The first one is easy as it is a Dowitcher and in this case, Short-billed Dowitchers. The second specie was a tough one and not many would have gotten this one unless they tried to use some deductive reasoning on what other birds with that size, that I have reported from the East Pond. Did you figure it out? It was a Ruff! The fourth one for Jamaica Bay this season. Thanks to Pat Bumstead who got 1 out of two. Way to go Pat and keep up the good work on those shorebirds. The photo below makes it easier to pick it out the Ruff.
