shorebird sp.

Reservoir - seen from distance in flight - very stiff wingbeats with wings not drawn fully into body, typical of shorebirds but seemingly most distinct in Spotted Sandpiper, which these most likely were, but no field marks discerned from the distance and I couldn't even see them when they landed

Absolutely everywhere today - at least one singing male heard from pretty much any location I stopped to bird at, as well as some while walking between - most abundant in trees on south shore of Reservoir/Bridle Path, where every tree seemed to have at least three - many females seen in addition to males heard and seen - exact count in most places but a very conservative estimate at the S Reservoir/Bridle Path area
