On a trip down to Carr-Gottstein Park today with Enric F. there were
many of the same birds as yesterday. After a closer look today the
"American Golden Plover" I saw yesterday it either changed somehow into
a BLACK-BELLIED PLOVER over night or was a completely different bird. I
tend to think I made some miscalculations yesterday with my rather
sub-par viewing conditions (that is what I will blame it on anyway).
A SOLITARY SANDPIPER called as it flew over, and after walking about a
mile out onto the flats (a literal mile to the NW) we had good looks at
Below is a link to a photo of that bird.
Other birds of note were about 10 SEMIPALMATED SANDPIPERS, 6 PECTORAL
SANDPIPERS a flock of 15 or so BANK SWALLOWS that looked to be on the
move, and a SHARP-SHINED HAWK turning the table and reversing the attack
on a magpie.
