Subject: [MASSBIRD] Wilson’s Plover yes 4:30 Sandy Point
Thanks to the tip on parking at lot 6 from Neil Hayward and taking the new trail down to the water, I found the previously reported Wilson’s Plover at Sandy Point (there were still no parking spots at Sandy Point at 5:30 !) Also present:
4 Western Sandpiper
5 Dunlin
1 Buff-breasted Sandpiper
> 100 both Semipalmated Sandpiper and Plover
3 Sanderling

The birds were jittery - at least once due to a Peregrine’s swoop through.
Late afternoon sun was beautiful, as noted by a large contingent of beach goers also enjoying this perfect late summer day.
