Help Wanted: Shorebird Roosting Sites

RBP Birds at the Marina 002
As the New Jersey Audubon Society embarks on its Meadowlands Shorebird Study, researchers are eager to hear of any overlooked places in the district where shorebirds congregate.

For an example, N.J. Meadowlands Commission staffer Angelo Urato passed along a photo (above) to this blog of dozens of peeps roosting on a dock at the new River Barge Marina in Carlstadt.

Another pic and more info follow.


The site has been added to the list of monitoring sites, and earlier this week we counted nearly 1,400 peeps at the sites, including at least 580 Semiplamated Sandpipers.

The other sites currently being monitored are DeKorte Park, Harrier Meadow, Sawmill Creek WMA, Mill Creek Marsh, Kearny Marsh East, Anderson Creek Marsh, Oritani Marsh, Berry Creek Marsh, the Clay Avenue Wetlands and Marsh Resources Inc.

Please e-mail Jim Wright of the NJMC here if you know of any other big roosting/foraging spots for sandpipers, dowitchers, yellowlegs and plovers.
