Best Bird of the Weekend (Second of August 2020)

10,000 Birds

Sliding into mid-August in New York feels like the easing into a Jacuzzi: the heat may be intense to start, but the good times are just getting started. Many of the most infrequent shorebird visitors to the greater Rochester area prefer to hide out on an island in the mouth of Braddock Bay.

Wood in the kitchen

Green (Living) Review

By Michael Smith (Veshengro) Wooden implement are better on pots and pans and not just those Teflon or similarly coated ones. In all honesty you should avoid such so-called non-stick ones anyway. Metal implements should, ideally, never be used in pots and pans, even in stainless steel ones.

A Red-capped Plover nest

10,000 Birds

Although I have introduced you to the Red-capped Plover in the past I thought I should show you a nest that we found recently. The Red-capped Plovers along the coast near Broome tend to nest on the sand above the high tide mark. They can also be found inland at the ephemeral lakes and can breed throughout the year if the conditions are right. Just as the Pied Oystercatchers sometimes nest on the sand and sometimes nest on rocky outcrops we have found the same to apply to Red-capped Plovers.
