Hello all

Third time at Jamaica Bay seemed to be a charm like the capture I have of this Red Knot and Wilson's Phalarope ,which was 1 of 8 of the them in various non-breeding plumage's , granted it is not the most colorful of species this time of year which the lighting conditions is a contributing factor also.

Now on the lighting conditions from a scale 1 to 10 as 1 being the worst, I give it a 2 to 4 because the sun did peek out occasionally raising my shutter speed a bit .

Other Birds sighted

Great Eget
Great Blue Heron
Least Sandpiper
Semi Sand
Western Sandpiper
Pectoral Sandpiper
White Rump Sandpiper
Black Bellied Plover
Short Billed Dowitcher

Wilson's Phalarope
