New York State Rare Birds

No.  I haven’t seen them, nor do I think I will get the chance to thanks to work…. Drat!

In case you haven’t heard there is a Red-necked Stint AND a Sharp-Tailed Sandpiper on the same pond at Jamaica Bay NWR in Queens.

There are some pretty good pictures of the Stint by Corey Finger over at 10,000 Birds.

Another NYC area bird Doug Gotchfield has some good photos  of both birds.

In other news, along and north of the Mohawk River in New York has had a major irruption of White-winged Crossbills, with reports out of the Adirondacks of day totals of several hundred birds, with many males singing.  A few birds have been spotted further south, but not many, yet.  A sign of things to come?  Perhaps, only time will tell.
