      The first push of fall migrant shorebirds is beginning to pick up some steam.
      At St. Marks NWR this evening had four Black-bellied Plovers, several of both
      yellowlegs, and three Least Sandpipers (along with the Semi-pipers and
      dowitchers that can't be told to be coming or going).

      Shorebirds aren't the only things moving, either: there were Common
      Nighthawks all over the refuge.

      Twelve spoonbills were in Stony Bayou #1, and the bird of the day was the
      beautiful Great Horned Owl on a snag in the salt marsh just north of the
      lighthouse.
