When we drove up, we spotted a small flock (about ten birds) of shore birds spinning around the area. We decided to sit in the car and give them a chance to land.
This is a relatively uncommon bird here so it is not likely that I will get this kind of training opportunity anytime soon. There have been several Pectoral Sandpipers spotted on the Avalon over the last three weeks or so. They should all be heading to Mexico soon which is where they will spend the winter. That sounds like a great plan to me!
