Also a few Laughing Gulls sprinkled about along with many Snowy and Great Egrets. Also one male Black-throated Blue Warbler in a Scholar Tree near the buildings.
On Monday at DeKorte, NJMC staff had Short-billed Dowitchers and lots of Least Sandpipers (above) and Yellowlegs, plus a Forster's Tern or two, the usual Ospreys and a Kestrel (by the Erie Landfill). We do have some mud flats in places, but water levels are still a bit up. And no American Avocet.
