I did a quick (and hot) drive through Eagle Bluffs CA from about 4-6p.
Although there are no mudflats in the upper distribution channel, there are
mudflats in the "middle" section (before and after where that line of willow
trees obstructs the view of the distribution channel) - and I observed about
50 smallish shorebirds (not including the numerous Killdeer).  The light was
horrible but I am guessing about 75% of them to be Least, and 25% to be
Pectoral with one Lesser Yellowlegs thrown in for good measure.  Didn't see
anybody of unusual size or shape.
 
There is also a muddy shoreline in Pool 2 - probably 15+ shorebirds there
with about 10 being Pectorals and 5 Least (along with Killdeer and herons).
The Upland Sandpiper might have been mixed in with them, but before I could
get a good view, it ducked in behind some weeds.
 
No muddy shoreline in Pool 15, or pool 10 - water still high into the weeds.
