No Curlew Sandpiper but Lots of Other Shorebirds

The Curlew Sandpiper was a no-show at Harrier Meadow today, but we had an assortment of good shorebirds, including Dunlins, Semipalmated plovers, Least and Semipalmated Sandpipers, and Spotted Sandpipers.

More than two dozen birders attended the last-minute walk, sponsored by the Meadowlands Commission and Bergen County Audubon Society.

Harrier Meadow is usually closed to the public but was opened for this special event.  Maybe the Curlew Sandpiper ought to read this blog.

A big thank you to all who participated. It was a beautiful day, with a nice breeze to boot.

    Jim Wright,
    Many thanks for making the quick arrangments for us to get a shot at seeing this bird. I’m sure it meant sacrificing a good part of your holiday weekend plans.
    Much oblidged,

    Even without the Curlew Sandpiper, it must have been a very nice day to be outside at Harrier meadow. Wish I could have been there.

    Darn, Wish I could have gone on the walk too. I was actually there at the Meadowlands as the walk was about to get started, but alas I had my dog with me at the time. The two of us walked the Marsh Discovery trail and didn’t see much of interest.
