      It was a good morning for shorebirds at this morning's high tide in Homer. The highlight was a juvenile STILT SANDPIPER at Mariner Lagoon! It was feeding in the open in a small pool near the edge of some dense vegetations. I heard fly-over, but did not see, a SOLITARY SANDPIPER.

      At Mud Bay were: 12 GREATER YELLOWLEGS, 6 LESSER YELLOWLEGS, 1 PECTORAL SANDPIPER, 1 WESTERN SANDPIPER, a distant flock of 20 peeps 6 SHORT-BILLED DOWITCHERS, 1 BLACK-BELLIED PLOVER and 2 SEMIPALMATED PLOVERS.

      There was a flock of 11 SANDERLINGS at the end of the Spit and a walk through Beluga Slough produced one SOLITARY SANDPIPER.

      Three ALDER FLYCATCHERS were still around in the elderberries at the edge of Beluga Slough near the Islands and Oceans trail.

      Good birding,
