Highlights: Stilt Sandpiper (photos above)

A Stilt Sandpiper was seen at the tip this afternoon. It was fairly accommodating until the Peregrine Falcon pictured below flushed all the shorebirds off the tip. While there was lots of activity in the woods today, the warbler diversity was the lowest it's been in weeks. There were again lots of Am. Robins, Yellow-rumped Warblers, and Pine Siskins around. Other sightings included; Northern Harrier, Northern Goshawk, Merlin, American Golden, Black-bellied, and Semipalmated Plovers, Blue-gray Gnatcatcher, Gray-cheeked Thrush, and Lapland Longspur.
