I spent a few hours surveying shorebirds this AM. An estimated 1500 shorebirds
with a total of 10 species, dominated by Semipalmated Sandpipers.
The highlights were White-rumped Sandpiper (6), Stilt Sandpiper (4), WESTERN
SANDPIPER (1) - this one, the kind that Steve Walter and I have debated over in
the past and a very difficult bird to pick out due to the worn plumage.
Also notable were my first observation of juvenile Least Sandpiper,
Semipalmated Sandpiper and Lesser Yellowlegs.
