The shorebird picture was dramatically different today than yesterday when the fallout occured. However, there were still several hundred shorebirds to be found at the locations I described yesterday, the best today (and yesterday) being the Middle Road spot in Swanton. Most birds seen yesterday have departed, but there was still a good variety to be found including Sanderling,
Black-bellied and Golden Plovers, Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs, White-rumped, Least, Semipalmated, and Pectoral Sandpipers, Killdeer, Solitary Sandpipers, Semipalmated Plovers, Snipe, Pipits, Merlin, and best of all, the BUFF BREASTED
SANDPIPER, was still at Middle Road this evening. The Buff-breasted hangs out in the rough part of the field on the right as you face it, and usually withing a couple hundred feet of the road. It can be challenging trying to find it.
