Shorebirds Galore

It's been a decent shorebird season. Started off pretty bad. Sterling Peat is essentially dried up. Luckily there was some good muddy shorelines at the Quinapoxet Reservoir in Holden and Quabog Pond in Brookfield. Awesome birds were found this week. Including Stilt Sandpiper, American Golden-Plover, Black-bellied Plover, and Semipalmated Plover. I got the absolute worst shots of some of these birds as the Quinapoxet Res flats were very far out. either way, it was awesome! Only a few uncommon shorebirds would be possible but I am not counting on them. Seems like its back to focusing on fall warblers and vireos! I still need Bay-breasted, Cape May, Tennessee, Conn, and Mourning Warblers and a Philly Vireo.
