Subject: [MDBirding] Sharp-tailed Sandpiper - YES and LAST CHANCE BEFORE TUESDAY
Just wanted to reiterate that, at this time, Swan Creek is not planning on
being open Saturday, Sunday, or Labor Day. Also, as of now, there are no
plans for extended hours this evening. So if you want to see the bird, I'd
recommend getting over there by 3pm so you can get a good look before
leaving at 3:30pm. The facility will reopen on Tuesday September 5th at

The bird has been cooperative all day so far, feeding straight out from the
viewing area and relatively close in. Other good birds present include 8
Hudsonian Godwits, 2 Wilson's Phalaropes, a Baird's Sandpiper, and a
Yellow-headed Blackbird. Of course there are several Stilt, White-rumped,
and Western Sandpipers around to enjoy as well.

Good birding!
