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 http://ebird.org/ebird/view/checklist/S37985586
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.
