Another big day today at Brilyea. Rarest bird was a juvenile Red Knot,
found on the sandy point that juts out from the east side of the
impoundment. Later it moved up the channel where it fed with Lesser
Yellowlegs. Other species seen today (either by me or Dick Lavallee):
(1) Stilt Sandpiper, (7-8) Short-billed Dowitcher, (7-8) Baird's
Sandpiper, (2) Wilson's Phalarope, (4) Semipalmated Plover, (250+)
Lesser Yellowlegs, (25=) Greater Yellowlegs, (4-5) Pectoral Sandpiper.
Also Spotted Sandpiper, Least Sandpiper, Semipalmated Sandpiper and
Killdeer. At one point a young Bald Eagle overhead; and around 2:00
p.m. a Peregrine Falcon striking and killing a Least Sandpiper....
