September 6 - Forsythe NWR a/k/a Brigantine

On my way down to Cape May for tonight's pelagic I made a stop at Brigantine.   Here I was able to see numerous Caspian Terns, a "late"-ish Gull-Billed Tern, and a pair of Buff-Breasted Sandpipers, along with a single Baird's Sandpiper.  Other shorebirds seen were American Oystercatcher, Black-Bellied Plover, Semi-Palmated Plover, both Yellowlegs, Semi-Palamated Sandpiper, Least Sandpiper, Spotted Sandpiper. both Dowitchers, and an early Ring-Necked Duck !
