Jamaica Bay is a wonderful place to view south-migrating shorebirds. It is located in Queens, New York City, just west of JFK Airport. We’ll check out both the East and West Ponds focusing on shorebirds, but also looking for herons, egrets, ibis and early landbird migrants. The exact itinerary will depend on the local timing of tides and reports of any usual or vagrant species present. Bring lunch, water, snacks, hat, sunscreen, tick repellent. Waterproof boots or shoes you don’t mind getting muddy can be useful along the pond edges. Space will be limited and initially reserved for HMBC members. An early departure from the Capital District is expected.

RESERVATIONS REQUIRED. Contact Gregg Recer by Sunday, August 13 for meeting place and time details.
