Early this afternoon there were 5 Buff-breasted Sandpipers present at the Harley's sod farm northeast of North Branch, specifically in the field on the north side of 400th street, 0.6 miles east of Hemingway Ave. (opposite a dried-out field). There were also 30 Killdeer here, and 3 Baird's Sandpipers in the dried-out field. Scope is recommended.
Earlier I had observed 10 warbler species in Anoka county, migrants included 1 adult male Northern Parula, two Tennessees, and 4 Nashvilles. 1 "Brewsters" type hybrid was seen, it resembled Sibley's illustration of "Brewster's backcross adult male", but had the full Golden-winged Warbler wing-panels - a very striking bird.
