Summer is the best time to view some of the fifty or more species of shorebirds that comb the beaches, sand flats, and marshes of Long Island. On this walk, we will visit Shinnecock Bay in Southampton and focus on plovers, yellowlegs, oystercatchers, and sandpipers as they feed by wading in shallow waters. So grab your binoculars and cameras, scopes, sunscreen, and a field guide to birds of Eastern North America, if you have one, and let’s hit the bay.
Ken Grille has been a published professional photographer for many years. His passion is Wildlife and nature photography and he has photographed birds and animals in many countries and states. His photos have been published in many local newspapers and magazines.
