We hear
shorebirds begin to migrate south in July. It makes sense because we spotted a solitary sandpiper, one of shorebirds on today's walk. Solitary Sandpipers spend the hot summer months in Canada or Alaska. 渡り鳥の季節は、始まっています:Shorebird の南への渡りは、7月に始まると聞いています。Shorebird のsolitary sandpiper をMinneapolis/St. Paulの近郊にあるLouisville Swamp Unit で見ました(夏は、もっと北に住みます)ので、彼らが南へ渡り始めたのを確認しました。

Pectoral Sandpiper
6713 140721  "Nature Notes"  Early this morning, one of our staff members joined Craig, a naturalist for his birding walk. "I saw my first Pectoral Sandpipers on the walk. The Pectoral Sandpipers have been migrating."  MN Valley - National Wildlife Refuge  "I also saw a raccoon swimming in the lake for the first time. Craig is saying, 'Raccoons can swim.'"
