I was there just after 6 and went to look for the Godwits, but I dipped on them. However there were more shorebirds than there have been lately:

6 Am Golden Plover
5 Killdeer
1 Spotted Sandpiper
3 Solitary Sandpipers 
17 Greater Yellowlegs 
54 Lesser Yellowlegs 
3 Least Sandpipers 
3 Pectoral Sandpipers
5 Wilson's Snipe

Thought I heard a Semi-palmated Plover but I got distracted and didn't follow up. 

Marsh birds were good too:
1 Am Bittern
5+ Sora
1 Virginia Rail

Other highlights:
2 Yellow-headed Blackbirds
1 Brewer's Blackbird
1 Peregrine Falcon
3 gull species (Franklin's, Ring-billed, and 1 I have to check my photos to ID)

A lovely day to be out!
