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.

    In addition to the birds listed on Valerie’s Sunday report, add the same birds and a Green-winged Teal and take away the Forster’s Terns, and you have my list for Monday. The teal was out swimming and preening in the north end. Also lots of Egrets and a couple of Blue Herons. Hopefully things are picking up.
