No. 565 - Curlew Sandpiper

Posting Revised: Please see posting on June 4 for more on the Curlew Sandpiper and photos

I was in Philly last week attending to family affairs. In spite of poor weather, I kept thinking about how close I was to the great birding in Cape May and southern New Jersey. Finally on Sunday, I headed to the Delaware River Bay, and a good trip it was. I broke my ABA life list drought on Sunday when I "collected" a Curlew Sandpiper at Matt's Landing in southern New Jersey. Although I am not a rabid life lister, I do know what I have seen, and that I had not seen a new life bird in North America since November, 2009.

A very nice find Chris to add to your life list. I love finding the Curlew Sand in the late summer when the adults still show off their red heads and breast.
