The James Bay shorebird project has been underway since 12 July. This season, we have two field camps operational: Longridge Point and Little Piskwamish Point. We've updated our website with the latest summary<https://www.jamesbayshorebirdproject.com/seasonsummaries> from our field crew for the period 30 July to 13 August 2019. Highlights include large influxes of migrant shorebirds, including first juveniles for many species. We also conducted an aerial survey of the coast 11-15 August from of the coast from Ekwan Point in the north east into Quebec's southern James Bay region. Aerial work has not been completed on the Quebec side since the Hydro surveys in the early 2000s. A summary of results from that flight to follow.
