Pectoral Sandpiper at Bombay Hook NWR.

Bombay Hook has been very, very good to me, so I made the trek again to see if I could get lucky.

It had to be a record day for Harriers. I saw at least six, one of whom posed nicely. A lifer Sandpiper, many ducks and egrets and a Fox by the side of the road made for a good day in near perfect weather.
