Solitary Sandpiper in the Meadowlands

1-IMG_7681While doing a quick scan for raptors today in a restricted natural area near the Hackensack River, the NJMC’s Drew McQuade spotted this Solitary Sandpiper, rare for this time of year around here.

The bird was in shallow water, bobbing its head regularly.  A few Mallards and a coot were nearby.

(Thanks, Drew!)
