A stop at the Key at Belle Isle this afternoon had a nice group of
shorebirds.

A male Kestrel was perched on a pole when I arrived, only to be chased
off by a very ambitious Peregrine Falcon. They were both out of sight
in a matter of seconds. Other birds present:

Snowy Egret 2
Lesser Yellowlegs 12
Greater Yellowlegs 6
Stilt Sandpiper 3
Pectoral Sandpiper 1
Killdeer 7
Semipalmated Sandpiper 12
Semipalmated Plover 5
Least Sandpiper 5
Spotted Sandpiper 2
Short-billed Dowitcher

Tide at Revere/Winthrop beach was high.
