Also there was a Black-bellied Plover at Rocky Hill Meadows this morning, which is an unusual inland bird.

I saw a small dark rail fly between two corn fields 30 feet from me.  I wish I could have seen that one better!

> The Buff-breasted Sandpiper was still at Rocky Hill Meadows today.  There are lots of rain pools, so birding should be good until they dry up.   Some increased diversity already, with a Lesser Yellowlegs, Solitary Sandpiper and a few Semi Sands.   Nice raptor show, with an adult Bald Eagle, Northern Harrier and an American Kestrel.  The highlight was a dogfight between a Peregrine Falcon and 2 Cooper's Hawks.
