I am looking for a standarized, or even informal survey methodology for (inland, although any would work) Least Terns?

The task is still impossible, but it is slowly yielding to a
persistent unwillingness to accept that reality.

Subject: [SHOREBIRDS] Shorebird migration, Ponce Inlet
Greetings - The first wave of shorebirds was on the sandbar inside Ponce Inlet this weekend (also because the 4th of July boat traffic was absent) - about 100 plovers (mostly SEPL and WIPL), a small group of BBPLs, Willets, 1 Greater Yellowlegs, and a group of RUTUs.
There was a juvenile Great Black-backed Gull on the beach, but my guess is this was a summer holdover.
