Temp in the 50s, mostly sunny, S wind 10-20 mph

We new it would be hard to top yesterday’s sightings–and we didn’t…

Our wake-up call this morning was a 4-point-something aftershock.

No new trip birds. Nothing of interest to photograph.

At Clam Lagoon, I walked out to the peninsula. A plover-sized shorebird flushed way ahead of me and disappeared around the point. It may have been the Mongolian. The only other shorebirds out there were two Rock Sandpipers.

As I started back, Barb called to let me know she had five shorebirds again in the same spot as yesterday–3 Pectorals and 2 peeps (one larger than the other). It looked like the Temminck’s Stint was still here. But not to be.

The larger peep was a Baird’s like yesterday, but the smaller one was a Western.

That’s it! Nothing else to report. Waiting for the next weather system to bring new birds.
