The Curlew Sandpiper was still at Jaeger Rocks in Fort Erie at 4:30 pm today. It was on the shoreline across from house #550. The only other shorebirds present were 2 Dunlin, with which it was loosely associating, and several Killdeer.
Directions: Follow the QEW towards Buffalo,USA. Take the Central Ave Exit as it is the final exit before the USA. Then you want to take a right on Central Ave, then a right onto Lakeshore Rd. When your driving along Lakeshore Rd. you will pass the Old Fort Erie historic site on the right. Just a little past this point on the left you will see a rocky shoreline and this is where the Curlew Sandpiper is being seen. Parking is tight on Lakeshore Rd, so parking on the sideroads is suggested (Adelaide).
