Subject: [Maine-birds] Flat Bay Shorebirds
The past week has brought in more shorebirds to add to the 1,400+ birds
we've been seeing since early August. Up to 2,500 shorebirds (mixture of
Semipalmated Sandpipers and Plovers, Black-bellied Plovers, Short-billed
Dowitchers, Lesser and Greater Yellowlegs, Least Sandpipers and, yes, 27-35
Whimbrel, are daily feeding on the mudflats during low tide in Flat Bay.
Good numbers of Common Terns, Bonaparte's Gulls, Herring Gulls and
Ring-billed Gulls as well as several Double-crested Cormorants and Ospreys
add to the viewing pleasure!

I saw one Stilt Sandpiper in the Mill River mudflats (west side of the
peninsula that ends in Oak Point) in Harrington this past Thursday.
