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.

Hi Jym,

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.
