Hey All,

The Buff-breasted Sandpiper continued for my girlfriend and I from 6:30-7:00. Before I saw the Buff-Breasted Sandpiper a non-breeding plumage RUDDY TURNSTONE hopped up on gravel divider between the blood ponds then flew to the pond farther from the road.

Who knows what might pop up at the blood ponds next! :-)

Good Birding,
