MA - Solitary Sandpipers
A late afternoon visit to the (currently drained) Turner's Falls power canal produced two Solitary Sandpipers feeding on the mud fairly close to the main entrance road on Migratory Way. Three Killdeer and a drake Northern Pintail were also present amongst the more regular fare - Mallards, Black Ducks and a couple of Great Blue Herons. Just back-tracking a little, we also had a calling Solitary Sandpiper over home in Gill on the morning of September 25th.
