Jones Beach West End: Red Phalarope
Reported on ABA yesterday, I headed over this morning before sunrise to try for it - found it - stunning female (they have the better plumage). Other birders were present and in awe also. Also present on the West End ponds were Semi-Palmated Plovers and Sandpipers, Yellowlegs, Oystercatchers, Short Billed Dowitchers, etc
Saw my FOS Spotted Sandpiper at Short Beach - by the Coast Guard Station.
