Two Shorebirds

By Luke Musher
Our first day in the field for my shorebird technician position was slow (and buggy!!!) today, but at least we got to handle two species.  The first bird was a Least Sandpiper, and the second was a Short-billed Dowitcher.  Check it -

Expect more of this soon.  We should catch upwards of 1500 Semipalmated Sandpipers by the begining of June along with Dunlin, Semipalmated Plover, and these two.  There's always the chance of Curlew Sandpiper at Heislerville!
