Joe Giunta and I (Sy Schiff) started at the South end of the East Pond. There is a flat that you can walk out on. In the water, 25 + SEMIPALMATED SANDPIPERS were feeding in the water close up. Mixed in and a bit on the periphery were 2 WESTERN SANDPIOPERS and 4 WHITE-RUMPED SANDPIPERS. On the mud flat just beyond were 3 LEAST SANDPIPERS. There were 10 BLUE-WINGED TEAL aways back in the water. Other species but no Godwits seen, so we left for the North end.
It’s underwater. Knee boots required. STILT SANDPIPER and 3 SHORT-BILLED DOWITCHERS feeding at the entrance. The HUDSONIAN GODWIT (they’re large) can be seen from the entrance with a scope. Joe walked up to the cove where the Godwits were (12-15-inches deep in places) and saw the WILSON’S PHALAROPE. No Marble this morning.
