Friday's Foto

With the songbird migration pretty much at a close, I decided to check along the coast for migrating shorebirds. This Willet was feeding on horseshoe crab eggs at Brooklyn's Plum Beach. While many of these large shorebirds will only stop off briefly in Brooklyn on their way to nesting grounds as far North as Newfoundland, some will actually breed locally.
