At Mitchell Lake this morning, I missed the Stilt Sandpiper and Black terns but 
added two more species of shorebirds.  A Buff-breasted sandpiper was seen 
foraging in the grass on the north end of Mitchell Lake.  It was with several 
Killdeer which gave me excellent size perspective.  The uniform tan face and 
breast were clearly seen.  As I approcahed for a better view, it dissapeared 
into the taller grass.  Not wishing to spook it, I left it a lone.  On the mud 
bar at the south end of the lake I found a Golden plover.  I also found the 
Short-billed dowitcher reported yesterday.
