Virtually no shorebirds at Sandy Point today.  However, the 2 adult and 1 juvenile American Oystercatchers were there.  The juvenile today did not have the growth on its bill seen on prior visits.  Was it the same bird? - can't be positive, but only one juvenile has been seen for several weeks.  Maybe a nice outcome for a worrisome situation.
