Subject: [obol] Broughton Beach Least Sandpipers
I realize this isn't a momentous sighting, but thought I'd share that fall
shorebird migration has apparently started with 2 LEAST SANDPIPERS being on
the beach at Broughton Beach in Portland this morning. Also nice to see at
least 5 Horned Larks on the beach. Photos are in my eBird checklist at

The water level has dropped from its highs, but is still relatively high.
The sandpipers were both at the west end of the beach below the parking
lot. The area where the gulls usually roost remains submerged.
