Jamaica Bay East Pond: Wilson's Phalarope
There was a recent report of a Wilson's Phalarope at the "raunt' section of the East Pond -when I arrived I looked for it but no luck - I did see some terns, Black Skimmers and some Glossy Ibis well south of the raunt. As I was leaving I spotted a sandpiper near the Glossy Ibis. Since there were no other shorebirds around I guessed it could the Wilson's Phalarope - it was very distant but a zoomed in photo at 120x confirmed it.
