Subject: American Golden plovers
I found just now a group of four plovers at the Vandemark sod farm on hwy 33 at I-95 as reported by Ricky Davis yesterday. They were in the grass strip closest to I-95. I pulled off the road at gate A. They show up as being dark and stand out against the sod. I assumed they were crows initially.

A Northern harrier was present initially and it flushed a large flock of small birds. I saw four horned lark in that area so that is likely what the flock was. I also saw a couple of peeps with the killdeer so might have been a flock of those also.

Visibility was very poor due to fog and drizzle but it was very birdy here.
