Shorebird firsts

The two shorebirds below are both first records for TTPBRS, and were hanging around off of the East Point of the count area, in the small mudflats of Embayment D. The Stilt Sandpiper was first spotted by Paul Prior on September 16, and was present again today. The Buff-breasted Sandpiper was discovered today by Andrew Jano.
