Today, Sunday 24 Aug, on the east side of Tinemaha there was a juvenile Sabine's Gull...very striking and not walked to within 20 feet of me. I worked hard to find a Semipalmated Sandpiper, which I finally did among the 500 or so Least and Western's. There were also a few Baird's sandpipers and first fall migrants of Pectoral Sandpiper.
