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.
