Ugh flew straight at me and past me as I stood on spillway, they did not stop. Three were significantly larger, notably, white underparts, blunt headed, really seemed like Sanderings from combo of white and black and size. Unfortunately rain picked up just before this, bins not ready, camera not ready.

Spotted Sandpiper
1
Common Tern

Small tern, short-tailed, adult. Primaries much more gray than Forster's, dark wedge on primaries. Flew directly overhead at 12 m and made several more passes nearby.

Wedge-rumped Storm-Petrel

First state record if accepted. Blown in by Tropical Storm Newton. Several experienced birders have confirmed my photographs, and all white-rumped storm-petrels on the day that were photographed have been taken to this species

One east end of lake viewed from beach and second (white-rumped) at the west end of the lake. Too far for my nil experience to suss out in the rain.

Call much reedier than BTGN, which were also nearby. I would not normally call these heard-only, but this was on the road to the spillway, where they have been reported in the past.
