Yesterday evening, 10-19-09, at Hamden Slough NWR there were several dozen shorebirds on Hass wetland east of the headquarters. There is a large mudflat near the road on both sides.
Mostly W. Snipe
at least one white-rumped
one either black bellied or a. golden
several dowitchers (after being corrected on my last dowitcher post, I guess they must be L.B.)
Again, may be worth checking out if you're in the area. I'd say close to 100 individuals.
