No destination this week, 8/19


Naomi Lloyd
 

The remains of Hurricane Fred will be visiting us this week bringing an inch and a half or more of rain tonight and tomorrow. When it passes by, keep your eyes to the skies and to the water for tropical strays that might get caught up and need a day's rest before turning around.

Shorebirds are just beginning to drop in but shore conditions have not been favorable so far - either too much water or too little. We're seeing post-breeding waders - two Little Blue Herons and a Black-crowned Night-Heron at Lock 2. Who knows what else is out there at your favorite creek or lakeside?

Always be birding --

Hey Thursday birders! Things are getting quieter as nesting season comes into full swing. Interested in recording breeding bird behaviour? Check out the third NYS Breeding Bird Atlas and contribute to citizen science! https://ebird.org/atlasny/about

Let's meet this week at Peebles Island SP for local breeders and shorebirds, if the flats are exposed. See you in the parking lot at 8:00.
