Bird Reports: DeKorte 082910 and 083010

Valerie Knipping writes: "Sunday morning searched very hard for the Avocet. at DeKorte. No luck.  Lots of Least Sandpipers and 1 semi-palm plover. 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.
