A Bar-tailed Godwit is still at 3 Crabs, observed and photographed by Michael Barry yesterday afternoon, 6/14/13. It looks very similar to the one first seen by Ryan Shaw on 6/2, but who knows if it's the same bird. It's hanging out with the other shorebirds along the mudflats west of the old restaurant site. Michael also reports a Long-billed Curlew and a Semipalmated Sandpiper in the shorebird flock as well, along with the usual BB Plovers, dowitchers, etc. We usually have 1st year BB Plovers and a few others remaining here during the nesting season, but it seems unusual for such a diverse group to still be here in mid-June.
