Since the American Avocets, the East Pond have not seen anything rare show up AS YET. However, Western Sandpipers, Stilt Sandpipers, Pectoral Sandpipers, White-rumped Sandpipers and the uncommon Marbled Godwit and Long-billed Dowitchers have all put in appearances making for some good shorebirding but yet NOT quite outstanding. Am I being picky?
I am still holding out for one big wave of shorebirds that will be packed with diversity and goodies. Too much to ask for, right? But that's the joy of shorebirding, always looking, studying and hoping for that one bird to rule them all. Here are a few photos of recent shorebirds on the East Pond.
