>From Nick Bonomo:
5/31 - West Haven, Sandy Pt -- 4 RED KNOT, 2 BLACK SKIMMER

Again decent shorebird numbers. It's a great time to be birding the coast.

One of the knots was flagged/banded. I'll post once I find out where
that bird has been.

Some rarities to look out for given the current weather pattern (SW
winds, warm and humid, scattered storms): another Royal Tern,
Gull-billed Tern, Black Tern, Wilson's Plover, Black-necked Stilt,
Mississippi Kite.
