Wendy Park Hudsonian Godwit

Today, Thursday the 7th, a Hudsonian Godwit graced the mudflats of the limestone/ore yard on the north side of Whiskey Island Drive, as you enter Wendy Park/Whiskey Island. Also present: several Dunlin and a slew of Killdeer. To view the mudflats, one must look through a fence covered in grapevines. No parking available; you’ll have to carefully pull to the side of the road as much as possible, and put blinkers on. There is two way traffic on this narrow entrance road. A scope is very helpful. Wendy Park’s woodlots held a nice assortment of Blackpoll & Nashville Warblers, Winter Wren, Hermit Thrush and plenty of White-throated and White-crowned Sparrows. Some of the best lakefront traps to visit this week for migrant searching include Wendy Park, Huntington Reservation, Elmwood Park, Sim’s Park and Wildwood.
