We visited "The Rock" about 9:15 this morning and scanned the area to the west with binos.
We saw what we were fairly confident we're a couple members of the Tringa clan.
I walked back to the car to fetch our scope, and once back to the rock, verified the Willet and
a probable Yellowlegs. While we were watching the Tringae, a Killdeer alit on the mudflat just a few dozen yards from us.
We drove over to the parking lot to the west to get a better look and got great views of the very pale Willet and a Greater yellowlegs.
Neither seemed ruffled by the reports of shotguns to the East which had flushed the Mallards who had been swimming nearby.
