10309Homer: Stilt Sandpiper, Sanderlings, Solitary Sandpipers
- Aug 15, 2014It 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.
