There is still a decent variety of shorebirds on the Lake Wheeler flats. This a.m. I had: both Yellowlegs, Pectoral, Stilt, Semipalmated, Least, White-rumped (1) and Spotted Sandpipers and Killdeer. When I first arrived, I found only a few Killdeer, but after about 15 min, just as I was starting to leave, several groups of shorebirds flew in. Based on this and other recent visits to this locale, itís worth waiting around if you arrive to find few birds, since the birds move around a lot.
