      It was a foggy, plovery day at Bald Point State Park this afternoon. Five
      PIPING PLOVERS proved present (none were banded) along with the same number
      of Semipalmated Plovers, over a dozen Black-bellies, and around six WILSON'S
      PLOVERS. Four COMMON GOLDENEYE (1 male, 3 female) were in Ochlockonee Bay at
      the edge of visibility; a Common Loon was right up next to the dock.

      Be warned, however: mosquitoes the size of Black-bellied Plovers have staked
      out the park. Swarms of them actually chased me onto and down the beach
      (first time that has happened)...
