Description

With Fran Meyerson; a surprisingly unsuccessful search for the Long-billed Curlew. We arrived in time for high tide, which saw all the shorebirds roosting together on the beach. I scanned every Marbled Godwit in the flock from the tower, 25-40 times each, always expecting to find the curlew when its head was not under its scapulars, but never finding it (I'm 98% positive that it was not present). The weather at the start was overcast, 65 degrees, and windy. At times, it was only mildly breezy, with maybe 7 minutes of sunlight. The entire flock took off at once at 1734 (final photo in the Western Willet record) and headed far south to roost elsewhere (there's no way that shorebirds would roost on a beach connected to the mainland; nocturnal mammalian predators would have a feast). We left at 1747, minutes after 7 American White Pelicans flee by offshore.

Below is our complete checklist:

3 Red-breasted Mergansers
1 Black-bellied Plover
97 Marbled Godwits
6 Ruddy Turnstones
6 Least Sandpipers
65 Short-billed Dowitchers
515 Willets
1 Ring-billed Gull
1 Forster's Tern
1 Royal Tern
1 Great Egret
1 Little Blue Heron
2 Red-bellied Woodpeckers
1 Nelson's Sparrow/Saltmarsh Sparrow
7 Palm Warblers
3 Yellow-rumped Warblers
