Shorebird Quiz 1...

For my faithful readers who attended the Shorebird Festival on Saturday at Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge in Queens NY.  This one is dedicated to you and it is an easy one to whet your appetite. Apply some of what you learned from Kevin Karlson's presentation and the in field experience you gained while learning from the several excellent leaders.  Good luck and remember to write in your comments and do not e-mail them to me.  E-mailed comments will not be acknowledged.  I want you to get over the fear of trying!  Go for it and don't worry about not getting it right.  Now to the fine print: Name and count by species all of the shorebird species in the image below.  Hint: The photo was taken on the East Pond of Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge.

Lori - interesting answer, you listed as many species as you could from Jamaica Bay. Was that from your recollection of what you saw during the shorebird festival at JBWR? You got the 3 species that were in the photo but by listed two that were not in the photo. Good work!
