Plenty of shorebirds and raptors.  If looking for that one lone specie in 
the flock of hundreds isn't challenging  you have the raptors in pursuit of 
a meal that routinely every 15 minutes changed the grouping for you. The 
Merlin and Peregrine were doing  spectacular dives, even witnessed a female 
Harrier strike a Greater Yellowlegs.   Five Eagles soaring in afternoon 
thermal.

Bob & Lura from Massachusetts proposed a challenge at the end of the 
afternoon..  Bob saw a large "Peep"  all dark, heavy bill,   dark chest area 
with large streaks of black also trailing down sides and belly?  He is 
thinking hybrid.  My thoughts, I did not see bird, a Dunlin, juvenile 
molting to first winter? He did mention Pictorial, in reference to size? or 
breast markings? If that  large a Knot?  If anyone sees this sandpiper lets 
us know your thoughts. It was in area of Goldenrod field off from second 
parking area.
