Shorebirds at The Meadows

I took a lunchtime stroll around TNC's Migratory Bird Refuge ("The Meadows" to us birders!) and found a reasonable scattering of shorebirds there, including three Semipalmated Plovers, six Killdeer, One Lesser Yellowlegs, four Greater Yellowlegs, 12 Short-billed Dowitchers, one Spotted Sandpiper and a fly-over Whimbrel. No sign of any ibises, but two Black Ducks and a Black Duck x Mallard hybrid were present. The east trail looks particularly nice now that the Marsh-pink is flowering.
