http://10000birds.com/another-visit-to-jamaica-bay.htm By now you have already seen the images of Pectoral Sandpipers and Wilson's Pharalope from my last trip onto the East Pond of Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge. You have also, I am sure, suffered through my Ode to Mud, inspired by that same visit. But you have not seen any of the other images I got during the eight hours I spent exploring the refuge on a hot summer day. Yeah, this is the lazy blogger's route, but I'm going to just post up my favorite pictures from the last visit that I haven't already used, just so you can appreciate some more of the wonderful birds that use the habitat at the best wildlife refuge on the east coast. Stilt Sandpipers (shorter neck) looks similar to yellowlegs (long neck). http://10000birds.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/jam-bay-lesserlegs.jpg http://10000birds.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/jam-bay-stilts.jpg http://10000birds.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/jam-bay-stilts-2.jpg
