Yesterday evening Julian Hough and I spent a couple hours walking out Sandy Point in West Haven, CT. It was a nice night to be out, and there were a good number of shorebirds around too. Even a bit of variety!!
A nice count of 12 Willets (9 juv Eastern, 3 juv Western) were a highlight. Red Knot and White-rumped Sandpiper can be scarce around here, so those were nice to see. And the first fresh juvenile peep of the year are always delightful.
