Wednesday afternoon (7-18-18) I spotted an adult spotted sandpiper and two chicks at the marsh.  The adult was bobbing up and down and calling to the chicks as it foraged.  The chicks exhibited the same bobbing behavior as well.

It is the first evidence I have seen of sandpipers nesting at the marsh as the two chicks looked recently hatched and too young to fly.  I would like to hear the opinions of other. My photos can be seen by scrolling down page 11 of this link:
