Subject: [HMBirds] Shorebirds continue eBird Report - Wrights Loop North, May 2, 2018

> Wrights Loop North, Saratoga, New York, US
> May 2, 2018 11:00 AM - 11:45 AM
> Protocol: Traveling
> 0.4 mile(s)
> Comments: Water in main "pond" had receded quite a bit in the intense sun and heat. Not as many Yellowlegs as previous days. I saw two small shorebirds that looked and acted like Buff-breasted Sandpipers. I will list them as "other shorebird sp" for now pending confirmation. Loud calling Louisiana Waterthrush was fun to track down in swampy hedgerow on edge of big field.

> shorebird sp. 2 My view through the scope was better as I watched 2 small shorebirds working the dried grass in the field beyond the water and muddy edges where the other shorebirds were. My impression visually and behaviorally, was that there were Buff-breasted Sandpipers. My photos across the water and field leave much to be desired for clarity.
