This morning (August 19) there were at Brilyea (easily viewed from the
causeway leading to the far parking lot):
(1) Wilson's Phalarope (juvenile)
(1) Red-necked Phalarope (juvenile)
(2) Stilt Sandpiper (in the near corner with the Wilson's Phalarope)
(1) Baird's Sandpiper (in the far corner near the Red-necked
Also in this same general area of Brilyea were at least (6) Pectoral
Sandpipers, numerous Least and Semipalmated Sandpipers, the usual
Killdeer and multi Lesser Yellowlegs. We didn't walk in past the orange
gates at either parking area, so we can't report on any shorebirds that
might have been feeding further back...
Also an adult Common Moorhen in the marsh. Pipit..
