08/28 Semi-palm Sandpiper (Virgin Ck) & L-B Curlews (Ten Mile)
- Thur, 28 Aug '08- Dorothy "Toby" Tobkin found a fresh, juvenile
SEMI-PALMATED SANDPIPER at Virgin Ck beach. I also saw the
same bird after her call to me. It ranged from the closed-off creek
to the farthest north sandy beach. It was with a single, juv. Western
and several Least Sandpipers. Also, Virgin Creek held 2 MARBLED
GODWITS and a BOBCAT !
Thur, 28 Aug '08- Ten Mile beach, I had 2 LONG-BILLED CURLEWS
at the tiny lagoon formed at Inglenook Creek mouth. Seven SNOWY
PLOVERS were behind their renovated fence south of Ten Mile Rvr.
Two additional MARBLED GODWITS rounded out the better birds.
