I went over to Montrose Beach this morning, June 13, to look for lingering shorebirds and found this Semipalmated Sandpiper. Here we are 2 weeks into June and we’re still getting migrating shorebirds. What’s even more amazing is that the first southbound shorebirds will start showing up within a couple weeks.

Last of the last?


I had 3 Semipalmated Sandpipers at Montrose on June 14, the last migrant shorebirds I had for the spring of 2016.
