Subject: [CT Birds] Eurasian Shorebirds in our area
Rhode Island is having a remarkable string of rare shorebirds recently with
Terek Sandpiper, Red-necked Stint, and Little Stint. From a probability
point of view, these three occurring as single individuals in one small
geographic area and time period is not highly likely. It also is quite
possible that there are other individuals in our area as yet unfound. Most
likely species to have others around is Red-necked Stint and least likely
is Terek's. The Terek's is likely from Asia but the Stints could be of
European origin as well as Asia. So CT birders should be on alert and
checking known shorebirds spots now for these and other potential Eurasian
Shorebirds. Not to mention the RI known birds may move through CT in
the near future.
