5761Long-billed Curlew - Virgin Creek Beach 8/29
- Aug 28, 2013Wed, 28 Aug 2013 -- Toby and I figured that the most logical "next" stop for the Buff-breasted Sandpiper would be
>Virgin Creek beach, south of Laguna Point. So, I walked up and down everywhere on the beach, concentrating on dry sand. I found a new bird for today - LONG-BILLED CURLEW with 2 Whimbrels, barely on the north section of beach. The continuing PECTORAL SANDPIPER was present. I only saw 2 Semipalmated Plovers, each separated by at least a football field. There were only a few Least & Western Sandpipers, Black-bellied Plovers, and Black Oystercatchers.[Non-text portions of this message have been removed]
>So, who knows where the Buff-breasted Sandpiper went?
