Late this afternoon I was counting the increasing numbers of Least and Common Terns on Cockenoe Island, Westport, CT. when a flock of shore birds fly by and land close to the boat.
Twenty three Red Knot, I think the flagged one was banded in Chile?
I have reported it to Delaware Fish and Wildlife, use it as you would like.
The story and photos are here:
