With just a few hours free today I visited some relatively local spots. I started with a nice walk at Paulinskill WMA (aka Hyper-Humus). I heard Virginia Rail calling, and saw a few species of Sandpiper, namely Killdeer, Least, Semi-Palmated and Spotted.
Aftewards I stopped at the Appalachain Tral crossing on Route 95 in Vernon. Here I was able to get beautiful scope views of the Grasshopper Sparrow.
