Whimbrels Spotted in Sam Smith Park

I've written about Whimbrel Point before, a spot in Samuel Smith Park where whimbrels rest for a day or two every May. This morning, I finally spotted these whimbrels.

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.
