My Veterans Park report was the result of scoping the outer harbor wall from the eastern edge of Veterans Park (just east of the Kite Store). All of the shorebirds I reported were on the harbor wall.
I had three Sanderlings on McKinley Beach early yesterday morning. And this morning there was a Greater Yellowlegs at Lakeshore State Park.

I see by your e-bird report for Aug. 21st that you saw Ruddy Turnstone, Sanderlings, Semipalmated Sandpipers, & a Spotted Sandpiper at Veterans Park yesterday. This is fascinating! I did not know that migrating shorebirds stop at Veterans Park. Did you spot them along the lagoon edge? If not, where? Thank you in advance! I am trying to keep a close eye on migrating shorebirds in my area so as not to miss any.
I know as of yesterday McKinley Beach still turned up empty for me.
