Took the picture of this Semipalmated Plover yesterday while attending the 7th Annual Jamaica Bay Shorebird Festival. Even though there were not that many shorebirds in attendance, the 100+ participants made it very festive. Lloyd Spitalnik and Kevin Karlson led informative workshops and gave wonderful photo presentations. Don Riepe discussed the history, current problems and future options for the Jamaica Bay Refuge.
