>From Steve Spector:
2 Sept 11 -- Milford Point (Francis Street spit) -- American Avocet present on 
western extension (sandbar) of Piping plover spit from 4:25-5:35 PM.  Still 
great variety on the sandbar, including 20 Red Knots.  About 1000 shorebirds, 
mainly tired and many sleeping, up on Cedar Beach (just east of the spit).  Also 
on spit, a mystery bird I could not ID--a few bad record shots taken into the 
declining sun are at www.stevesbirds.blogspot.com Any help greatly appreciated.  
Probably a simple ID but I'm in the dark. charsjs at sbcglobal.net
