We postponed until Thursday due to the threat of inclement weather and we really had a great morning. We had 31 species (maybe others saw more) with the highlight being three Whimbrel who gave good looks as they relocated to a nearby sandbar on the rising tide. Straggling birders lucked out at the end as an American Golden Plover flew in. Best represented on the bars were Black-bellied Plovers. American Oystercatchers were plentiful but out on the breakwater and difficult to make out detail in less than optimum light.
