Yesterday, while conducting a shorebird census at the Rachel Carson Reserve,
south of Beaufort (NC), I found a juvenile Buff-breasted Sandpiper. As
would be expected, it was feeding on dry flats (sparse cover of Spartina
patens).

Some other shorebirds on the census were 54 Wilson's Plover, 4 Piping
Plovers, 45 Whimbrels, and 62 Marbled Godwits.
