September 4 - Overpeck Park surprise

Birding today with Bill & Simon we were surprised to find a Buff-Breasted Sandpiper here in Bergen County.
Typically these birds are coastal migrants, however they do turn up at inland sod-farms. I guess the soccer fields at Overpeck were a suitable substitute.
