C’mon, let’s take a walk. Wait, did you go get your permit? Yes? Ok then.
In a few weeks, there will be a bloggy meet-up at Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge in Queens, NY. You are coming, aren’t you? It is one of the most amazing places to see at most times of the year, BUT, my friends, there is nothing like the shorebird migration. I was there in August last year and the birds were literally at our feet. We walked around East Pond and then hopped over to walk around the West Pond and through the woods.
Not only is it great for shorebird viewing, but the opportunity for photos is outstanding. AND not to dangle the carrot too close to your face, there have been several rarities there in recent weeks.
Hyped up to go now? Here is who’s going as far as I know. There are a a few others nibbling the carrot too. (Which is sort of like drinking the Kool-Aid, but not really.)
