Headed to Boeing Ponds for a bit this morning to check out the shorebird
action. Had the following 10 species:

Semipalmated Plover - 1
Killdeer - 2
Spotted Sandpiper - 3
Solitary Sandpiper - 3 (at least)
Greater Yellowlegs - 3
Lesser Yellowlegs - 2
Semipalmated Plover - 1
Least Sandpiper - 7
Pectoral Sandpiper - 1
Long-billed Dowitcher - 4

ebird report: http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist?subID=S14862914

Also had Green Heron, and a swallow that at first I believed to be a Bank
Swallow but may have been a juvie Tree Swallow. Horrible pics of the
swallow on the ebird report. It seemed real small and the flight was very
"fluttery".

Looked for the Mockingbird, but no luck.

It was a good morning out there, those ponds are really teeming with
shorebirds.
