77F, sun with two short rain showers, 11mph SW wind.
Audubon Road, Partridge Islands and boardwalk.

Non-avian: a Fisher climbing a tree between the exec park and the marsh. At first, I thought it was a black cat, but looked closer and discovered its identity.

While watching the mud flat area on Audubon Road, I saw the shorebirds go up and fly toward the exec park. Suspected they were heading to their favorite peninsula to bathe in the exec park, and sure enough they were all at the peninsula when I drove over there, except the Killdeer.

    Comments: Estimate immature as one photo shows breast streaking. Very small - about the same size as the Flicker in the same tree; maybe immature male. Jays were swooping on it and Flickers were aggravated too. I was able to see the tail stripes in flight.
