The 2 Stilt Sandpipers were still present this morning at 7:15 am.  They are adults that are still mostly in breeding plumage, with heavily barred underparts and still exhibit faint rust on the cheeks - visible with scope but probably not with just binocs.

I met Barney B. there this morning, who had found a freshly dead imm. male Am. Redstart, an apparent window strike at the nearby glass office  building.

For those who have seen the bird – is the rufous cheek visible?  Is it in breeding or nonbreeding plumage.
