Re: Stilt Sandpiper and phalaropes

I arrived this morning, hoping for some people with scopes but there was only one couple I didn't recognize.  I believe they said the were from South Carolina.  Anyhow, they got me on 5 Red-necked and 1 Wilson's Phalarope.  After about 20 minutes, they found the Stilt Sandpiper in the eastern part of the same pond described by Paul.  After a few minutes, it flushed with all the peeps and a couple of the other shorebirds and although I thought I saw where it landed, we did not re-find it.  I believe it landed just a bit west from where we found it.
