I put off a day of birding in the field to volunteer my time on Saturday at the Jamaica Bay BioBlitz that was held at Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn NY. This event, was concentrated around the Floyd Bennett area only and when I was asked to participate, I agreed to do the birding part of it. Somehow, I worked birding in...nice don't you think?
The birding was slow with not much around; nevertheless, we birded on, covering our area until it was felt we had given enough blood and settled for 42 species, with the highlights being 4 Solitary Sandpipers and a female Scarlet Tanager.
