Belle Isle Cemetery, Fisherman's Bend Park, and ending at Winthrop Beach. I arrived at Fisherman's Bend near low tide, and yet, several shorebirds were still on the roosting place. Others were feeding on the mud next to it.

Great Egret 4                                          Belle Isle
Snowy Egret 2                                        Belle Isle
Northern Harrier 1
Red-tailed Hawk 3                                 together
Cooper's Hawk 1
accipiter sp. 1
AMERICAN GOLDEN PLOVER 6       continuing for one week or so? all on roost; seen very well
Black-bellied Plover 23                        
Killdeer 20+                                          field just before cemetery entrance; flushed by hawks
Semipalmated Plover 3                        Belle Isle Inlet
Spotted Sandpiper 1
Greater Yellowlegs 16                         max.; nine Belle Isle Inlet, seven Fisherman's Bend
Ruddy Turnstone 2                             Fisherman's Bend roost

P.S. Belle Isle Cemetery compost area is no longer here; gone! A great sparrow place has bitten the dust. R.I.P.
