Made the short trip to Swallows Park around 7 AM to see if anything new fell out of the sky last night.
Bufflehead 24 +/- seems late
Ruddy Ducks 30
American Avocets 14
Black-necked Stilt 1 has been present for a couple of days
Least Sandpiper 1 For reasons unknown to me this has been a "Least Sandpiper year" with as many as 11 on our little mud
and at least one present every day for the last two weeks. A couple of years ago this was a Cat 5 county bird.
Franklin's Gulls 4 with the American Avocets. They all appeared to be resting together after arriving late.
