Saturday morning's highlight at the drawn-down Salt Works pond half a mile east of the end of 13th Street was an adult Semipalmated Sandpiper, very rare or casual here in July. There are approximately 2000 Western Sandpipers present this morning, so trying to re-find this one bird will be a major undertaking. Also present was one continuing Lesser Yellowlegs, but there was no sign of yesterday's Stilt Sandpiper. The count of Wilson's Phalaropes was up to about 110 birds, with also about 75 Red-necked Phalaropes. This pond will likely already be too dry by Monday.
Yesterday at Emory Cove, there was an immature Reddish Egret exactly where we had an adult the previous weekend, as well as one one-year-old Common Tern.
