Pectoral Sandpiper ; East Batiquitos Lagoon 9SEP2022
By – 2:21 pm
This morning, 9SEP2022, I observed a new PECTORAL SANDPIPER at the high tide waterline just south of East trail parking lot at Batiquitos Lagoon (33.092765, -117.279128). Also of very local interest, I also observed at dunlin with mostly intact black belly. This is first time I’ve ever seen a dunlin at the lagoon in fall before October. Finally, I had an apparent PURPLE MARTIN flyover at Poinsettia Park also in Carlsbad; a 5-mile radius nemesis bird! Distant but useful photos in ebird reports online. Tito GonzalezCarlsbad, CA
