"I'm sharing my photos and stories of my bird watching adventures on Long Island. I also feature my sightings from around the USA and other countries when I travel. I hope you enjoy them." - Rob (from Massapequa)

Jones Beach West End
There was a report by a NYC birder of a Pectoral Sandpiper and possible calling from a Least Bittern. I checked out the ponds where the birds were reported and found a previously reported Stilt Sandpiper and finally located the Pectoral. No sign of a Least Bittern. Also saw Short Billed Dowitchers, the usual shorebirds as well as an unidentified flycatcher - have to assume it was a Willow even though an Acadian was also reported recently.
