Mobirders,
We made 3 trips to Firma Road: early am., midday and late.  I think we
totaled 12 species of shorebirds, but only a couple had  significant
numbers.
Buff-breasted Sandpiper
Stilt Sandpiper
Lesser Yellowlegs
Semi-palmated plover
Am. Golden-plover
Long-billed Dowitcher (30 min study and consult with books from about
30 yards with 32 x scope)
Killdeer (many)
Least Sandpiper (many)
Pectoral Sandpiper (many)
Spotted Sandpiper
Solitary Sandpiper
Semi-palmated Sandpiper
Missed the Baird's Sandpiper; Tom thought he had a Western, but we
could not re-find it after they flew.
Dark Ibis was only seen in the a.m. trip.
We had more Belted Kingfishers today than I ever recall seeing in one
day--well over 20 birds in St. Charles Co.
