Just a quick run around, found the immature Black-bellied Whistler hunkered 
 down resting out of the noon sun. No adults were seen. The numbers of 
shorebirds  are down but still a few thousand were scattered either by lack of 
habitat or  raptor harassment. The jump in Western Sandpipers from a single 
adult bird on  Saturday and Sunday was pretty to say the least with all birds 
 found yesterday being spiffy juvenile plumaged birds for another first of  
season. Not to be out done, a single juvenile Pectoral was also a new for 
the  season addition and I'm sure others might have been in the mix. As the 
numbers  of Semipalmated sink, the smart looking young now predominate. What 
a difference  a few days make in the line up of species, sexes and 
Good Birding  !!!
