The peat pits at Wilderness Rd had lots of shorebirds this morning. There seemed to be a little more water there than several days ago. The big event was the fantastic numbers of stilt sandpipers. I counted 45, including one group of 20. Shorebird species seen: Am. golden plover - 1 Killdeer - 70+ Semipalmated plover - 10 Greater yellowlegs - 4 Lesser yellowlegs - 7 Least sandpiper - 17 (probably more) Baird's sandpiper - 1 Pectoral sandpiper - 11 Stilt sandpiper - 45!! Short-billed dowitcher - 11
