We postponed until Thursday due to the threat of inclement weather and we
really had a great morning.  We had 31 species (maybe others saw more) with
the highlight being three Whimbrel who gave good looks as they relocated to
a nearby sandbar on the rising tide.  Straggling birders lucked out at the
end as an American Golden Plover flew in.  Best represented on the bars
were Black-bellied Plovers.  American Oystercatchers were plentiful but out
on the breakwater and difficult to make out detail in less than optimum
light.

Thanks to everyone who participated!
