On 13 Dec a latest ever Semipalmated Plover was at Tinemaha Reservoir. The previous late date was 21 Oct with most gone by mid Sep. This bird was dark brown above with a single narrow breast band. It was much smaller than the Killdeer standing next to it. Also interesting were 4 Great Egrets, 23 Tundra Swans, and 2 Long-billed Dowitchers all at Tinemaha Reservoir.
