[TN-Bird] Shorebird Stragglers

June 5-6, 2010
North and South Treatment Plants
Memphis, TN
 
At Ensley, the number of nesting Black-necked Stilts have doubled in just  
one week plus one set of young found. White-rumped Sandpipers numbered 12 on 
 Saturday and 19 Sunday with 8 Semipalmated Sandpipers both days. This last 
group  may be youngsters that have given up on migration to the breeding 
grounds. Two  Spotted Sandpipers may indicate breeders again.
 
At the North Plant, young Black-necked Stilts were everywhere, 2  
Semipalmated Plovers are late, (there were 4 there the first of the week), 22  
White-rumped and an amazing 42 Semipalmated Sandpipers were counted Sunday. 
 
It has been over two weeks since any numbers of Least have been  seen 
around here (I did have a single up north and a pair one day at the  "Pits") 
but 
I expect the first Least Sandpiper returns in exactly 2 weeks;o)  
Good Birding  !!!
