Subject: [cobirds] Buff-breasted Sandpipers at John Martin Reservoir
Birders,

I found two Buff-breasted Sandpipers late this afternoon at John Martin
Reservoir (Bent County). They were at Clayton Point on the north side of
the reservoir. Clayton Point is reached by turning south from Bent
County Road JJ just east of Road 20, and working south, then east to the
obvious gravel island, which should be covered with American White
Pelicans and Double-crested Cormorants. If you don't find an adult
Lesser Black-backed Gull on the island, I would be surprised.

The sandpipers were on the mainland opposite the island. The best part
of my experience was calling local birders, and finding Norma Verhoeff
was able to come out to see the birds (a lifer for her). I would be
shocked if her pictures aren't an an order of magnitude better than mine.
