Went looking for the Spoonbill at New Hope Creek Sunday - no luck!! But did see the continuing Wood Stork, and there were still lots of shorebirds. Highlights included 1 Black-bellied and 46 Semipalmated Plovers, 26 Stilt Sandpipers, 1 Sanderling, 1 Baird's and 5 White-rumped Sandpipers, 55 Pectorals, 75 Lesser Yellowlegs, and a smattering of the usuals. Real neat was at one point, the Bairds and White-rumpeds were side by side, affording great comparison! Most of the birds were in the mud flats around the RailRoad grade and upstream from there.
