Cook’s Landing 5/1/2010

I had planned to go shorebirding at Treadways & Saul’s but the forecast changed my mind. I decided to use the predicted lull in rain to bird Cook’s Landing instead.  I walked parts of the River Trail, the Northshore Trail, and the Pfeiffer Loop trail. Over a 2 hour period, I saw 42 species in all which included three first of years – 1 Yellow-billed Cuckoo, 1 Eastern Wood-Pewee, and 1 Yellow-breasted Chat.  All of these were along the River Trail.
The forecast is for more storms tonight but not Sunday morning. Maybe tomorrow will be a good day for shorebirding.
