A little late now, but the morning rains brought a small fallout of
shorebirds to the spit at Myers Point, which included a very
rare-for-the-county juvenile STILT SANDPIPER, along with a Sanderling and
other more expected species. Unfortunately, most of the birds departed
around 8:30 and did not seem to return. Checklist here:

I checked the point again this evening and found the adult Sanderling still
present and joined by a second individual, this one a crisp juvenile, along
with two Semipalmated Plovers and three Semipalmated Sandpipers. Today was
a welcome change after a long stretch with almost no shorebirds at the park
over the last few weeks.
