Willet and Baird’s Sandpiper, August 16, 2014

I rode my bike over to Montrose early this afternoon to watch the Air and Water Show, but before the Blue Angels started flying I checked the beach and had a Willet and a Baird’s Sandpiper, both juveniles, inside the protected area. I also had a “flock” of 5 Blue-gray Gnatcatchers at the southeast corner of the point.
