4 Black Skimmers,40 Short-billed Dowitchers,many Dunlin,Semipalmated Plovers, 2 Black-bellied Plovers,Semipalmated Sandpipers, 39 American Oystercatchers including many newly hatched birds. Common Terns appear to be doing well so far.
Also had a lingering single Purple Sandpiper near East White Rock.
And the there were many newly hatched Great Black-backed Gulls and Double-crested Cormorants on Goose Island.
Of note: We found a Yellow-crowned Night-Heron nest at Gray's Creek and we heard the Red-headed Woodpecker there as well.
