Red-necked Stint~afternoon location

More Red-necked Stint fun..

The Red-necked Stint from my previous post (Chasing a rare bird~Red-necked Stint)was re-located.

We were all at the blue location~ where the bird was seen from early morning until around 12pm when we lost the bird.

The bird was located at the red location sometime after 1pm.

Thanks John Puschock for the map below.

So here we all are ~happy again and making the short trek to the bird.

Upon returning home..I was asked by John Puschock if he could use my Birders looking at Stint photo for the ABA blog.

Of course I said yes..click on the photo to read the Stint Story and see my photo.

The Stint was not seen in MA on Saturday.

On Sunday a Red-necked Stint was found on Long Island…upon comparison of photos..It is believed to be the same Stint.
