This bird was so close to where we are parked. Just a short drive from Lexington.
Would it still be around on Friday?

I wanted to get out after having been indoors on Doxy for a month. What a perfect outing.
Birds and Birders…cant get much better than that.
We knew there would be plenty of birders wanting to see this rare bird.
Friday morning I watched the ABA Alert page until I saw that the bird was being seen a short walk from parking area 7'.
The morning birders got soaked in the rain while watching the stint..luckily the rain had stopped and it was just overcast.
We hopped in the car and booked it to Plum Island.
The Parking lot was full.
A birder on his way back to his car said the bird was being seen.
Wow..that was easy.
Life Bird Dance!
We then set up our scope and watched the bird for a little over an hour.
Then it came a bit closer…
It was chased by a Killdeer and eventually finally flew off.
I have found these on Sandy Point before..
the ones I found last year were brown..
just a short walk from where we are..
We rush to see the bird again..
