Whimbrels Spotted in Sam Smith Park

Apparently, they had just arrived from an overnight flight from Virginia. They're just resting on their way to the arctic. I couldn't get too close as to not disturb them, but here's my pic of the elusive whimbrels.

My son insisted we go to Col. Samuel Smith park after he had been there on a class trip a few weeks ago. We had such a nice day there with all the Red-winged Blackbirds. It was a great way to spend Victoria Day.
