My SOS Survey yesterday at Virgin Creek was a little more active than it’s been for a few weeks. Shorebirds are on the move back from their breeding areas. The highlights were a Willet and 16 Whimbrels. There were 29 Western Sandpipers, 2 Least Sandpipers, a single Black-bellied Plover, and a single Black Turnstone.
A molting adult Willet.
North of Ward Ave. was a flock of 141 Western Sandpipers.
