Subject: [LABIRD-L] BC Spillway migration
Ronald Stein and I checked out the spillway for shore-bird migration. The mud flats on the eastern side by the river were nice. Our list there included:


Black-necked Stilt 45
Killdeer 20
Least Sandpiper 3
Pectoral Sandpiper 15
Western Sandpiper 1
Short-billed Dowitcher 2
Spotted Sandpiper 15

Laughing Gull 40
Least Tern 12
Gull-billed Tern 8
Black Tern 40 (mostly imm)
Forster’s Tern 8

Sure is nice to see this fall migration starting.
Noteworthy——no Yellowlegs
