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 from our field crew for the period 14-27 August 2019. Highlights include southbound pushes of adult shorebirds and influxes of juvenile shorebirds. A Prothonotary Warbler (2nd record for the region, furthest north record, if accepted) at Longridge is a standout passerine record, and finch numbers continue to impress.
Stay tuned to our website and Facebook page for future updates, posted roughly every two weeks.
