The bird of the day on Peacock Pocket Rd. at MINWR had to be the female Ruff! Also exciting to see was a King Rail highlighted by the morning sun, 1 each- Spotted and Solitary Sandpipers, dozens of Stilt Sandpipers, several Dunlin, a few Semipalmated Sandpipers.

On Bio Lab Rd. the bird of the day was the Wimbrel. Semipalmated Plovers and Stilt Sandpipers were abundant-at least 300-400 each; about 75 Black-bellied Plovers in all degrees of color; About 25 Long-billed Dowitchers and more of Short-billed; 1 Solitary Sandpiper. Wading birds are numerous, active and beautiful!

Oak/Palm hammock was quiet. In a quick trip through, I saw only 1 Black and White, I male American Redstart, 1 Parula, 1 Black-throated Blue.
