More Buff-breasteds!

Yesterday I saw a report of American Golden-Plover and Baird's Sandpiper at the same spot as the Buff-breasteds were at, so when I had the chance I went down to oversee the situation. I was briefly elated to spot record numbers of people (5) holding scopes and telephoto lenses and following a reeling flock of skittish shorebirds. Of course, they were "just" 4 Buff-breasteds. One appeared to have been an individual I had seen two days earlier, due to unusually dark plumage and extra-extraordinary...

Up close and personal with BBSA

Today a walk at Jones Beach produced relatively little. One thing of note was that there were 45 Willet getting ready to move on south. The other was that there were two Buff-breasted Sandpipers hanging around.

Now this must be at least the third or fourth time I've seen that species at that location before, this year. But today I was viewing them at sunset, and the lack of people made my experience with the birds much more interesting.

The day went as follows. First I birded the West Pond and found a few early ducks, like Blue-winged Teal and...

Unbeknownst to you...

This post was created YESTERDAY. I told the smart little computer to post this at 6:00 whatever time, on September the fourth! Pretty amazing that we can select an exact sliver of time somewhere in the future, when otherwise we can't predict the future one second ahead of us? We can forecast weather by assuming that the clouds will keep rolling in the same direction, we can forecast when the birdies all the folk here are so dedicated to will begin to flutter off to their summering or wintering territories...

BF Blogs!

Posted Tuesday 4th September 2007 at 01:28 by birderbf
Ah that spurred me on to making a blog, since I hope that BF's version won't be as much of a fuss as the blogs that actually have thir own address (I could never think of a good address to request anyway.... birderbf.blogspot.com? Sounds boring....)

So this is entry one, a test, so I can actually find out what it will look like.
