Comments:
I birded Antelope Island SP quickly by car, including the causeway entrance (which had thousands of birds too distant to count) and the main road in the state park, plus I hiked a couple of trails, including Buffalo Point and Lady Finger Trail. I also birded the harbor.Sunny, cloudless sky, 75F and 15 mph S wind at beginning of observation period, 84F and S wind 18 mph at end of observation period.

shorebird sp.

I heard what I think is a whimbrel, which I identified by voice only; distinctive 7-noted whistling call. Heard 3X in succession with breaks in between. I am unaware of any other bird that sounds like this but because I am birding in an unfamiliar part of the country and due to the rarity of this bird at this time, and the fact that I didn't have visual confirmation, it is a "possible whimbrel."

Ring-billed Gull

California Gull

gull sp.

Conservative count, moving quickly; gulls on water and standing on salt/mud flats far out from road. I couldn't ID without a scope, they were too distant.
