Whimbrel!

Dunkirk, NY (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: This is something you don't see very often on Lake Erie unless you happen to get lucky during migration season! There were several Whimbrels taking a break in the Dunkirk Harbor today on their way south after spending the summer in the Arctic Circle. They were mixed in with a flock of Greater Yellowlegs.

The local ornithological society was excited about this one. More likely to be seen near Lake Ontario than Erie during migration season. A rarity in this area!
