Tomorrow is World Shorebird’s Day!
It’s actually three days (September 5-7) to count and appreciate all the world’s shorebirds which are busy migrating right now! Just yesterday I saw Semipalmated Sandpipers and Semipalmated Plovers at the Boat Launch, as well as a Greater Yellowlegs! Other than a Spotted Sandpiper seen there a week or so ago, they are the first shorebirds I have seen at the boat launch since moving here! I have registered to count shorebirds at four sites close to me, with the Mere Point Boat Launch being one of them. Below are just a few of the shorebirds I saw two weeks ago when I went birding with Cynthia Cage here in Maine. More on that to come, but for now…I need to get ready to bird! See links below for more info!
These are my register sites:
