Shorebirds at Little Estero CWA
- Highlights from this morning included 3 Whimbrel, ~10 Marbled Godwit, 2 dozen Red Knot, 3 spotted sandpiper, 8 oystercachers, 4 western sandpiper, 3 short-billed dowitchers and several black-bellied plovers still sporting black bellies.
A first-of-the-season piping plover was a nice surprise as were lingering last-of-the-season least terns.
Waders included 3 reddish egret dancing for fish; as well as tricolored, and little blue herons; and snowy and great egrets.
