Mike,
That's quite a one-day, one-place list...to which you can add Royal Tern, 4 
Black Skimmers, 4 Whimbrels.

We used to call that the Patagonia (AZ) Picnic Table Effect; when a rare bird 
brings more birders, who then find more rare birds, etc.

9/1/11  Milford Point -  American Avocet, Black-necked Stilt, Bairds Sandpiper, 
Western Sandpiper, Gull-billed Tern, Forsters Tern, Bonapartes Gull.

     Most of the day was spent at Milford Point today and I saw some very unique 
birds, some for the first time.  Many thanks to all the birders present today, 
it was quite a day.  More and more birds kept arriving and I too just missed 
seeing the Brown Pelican.  Currently, there are many species and numbers of 
birds there.
