Subject: [HMBirds] Dunlin, Pectoral Sandpiper, Least SP. eBird Report - Wrights Loop North, Apr 30, 2018

> Wrights Loop North, Saratoga, New York, US
> Apr 30, 2018 1:15 PM - 2:24 PM
> Protocol: Traveling
> 0.2 mile(s)
> Comments: I arrived to find the field still fully flooded. What had been the farthest part of the field, was now the "shoreline and was inhabited by lots of gulls and shorebirds.I observed a few times when the gulls seemed to bully the shorebirds by chasing them away. Took a while to find "peeps" on the midst of all these bigger birds. I had originally come out today because of Scott's report about seeing a Blue-gray Gnatcatcher. I was also so fortunate while walking Wright's loop and looking on the wooded side of the road, also extensively flooded.
