This afternoon I saw the RNPH at the farm pond on Brandon Farm Road. It was there when I left at about 5:00pm. I did not see the Baird's Sandpipers (2) reported by sisters Cindy Tobin and Linda Sparling. Linda is an experienced birder from Minnesota and gave a detailed description of the Baird's. They had the BASAs with Semipalmated Sandpipers so a good comparison was had.
The RNPH is a female in very close to full breeding plumage. Beautiful. Cindy got some photos and will try to get them posted.
There are numerous Grasshopper Sparrows and Dickcissels along this road. The two ponds on Taff Road are full and were void of shorebirds, but should be checked if you are there. See www.wingsoverga.com for directions.
