60s, partly cloudy, breezy, parked at sharp bend in road, walked up water's edge west to mudflats where majority of shorebirds were congregated, very muddy due to recent rains

  4. Number observed: 1

    Details: continuing rarity, banded, foraging far out at western-most part of mudflats with a group of semipalmated plovers, amusingly as I was watching through the scope, something flushed the majority of the shorebirds and the piping plover, instead of flushing, casually strolled over to a couple pieces of driftwood wedged in the mud and stood underneath them for protection (see pic)
