There were three buff-breasted sandpipers on the first bare field on the left as you drive into the Meadows at about 11:30 AM.

Rocky Hill Meadows - 9 September 2012: I saw and photographed the pair of
BUFF-BREASTED SANDPIPERS at the sod field with the pallets on it this
morning around 9:00.  They were also seen by two fellows, Tom & Mike, who
arrived as I observed the sandpipers among 15 killdeer. They reported an
olive-sided flycatcher at the north end marsh with the dead trees.  I
haven't gone through my photos yet to see if I got the flycatcher, but I did
see a cooper's hawk.
