Shorebird monitoring - Semipalmated Plover

Hot humid weather usually is not the best weather for fall migration.  Luckily the slower days have allowed to focus on shorebird monitoring and banding.  So far this season, 115 individuals have been banded, with Lesser Yellowlegs and Solitary Sandpiper being station firsts! Also observed were White-rumped Sandpiper and Baird's Sandpiper.  Least Sandpiper lead in numbers with over 40 being banded.
