Comments:
Possible godwit, but the bird was backlit, inconclusive for ID. Overall size and build looked good, and the silhouette of its bill appeared slightly upturned. Unable to locate phalaropes or white ibis reported during the week. More shorebirds, gills and teens present than counted, will review photos from home to update numbers.

Saw several small groups of individuals scattered throughout the refuge; counted only this largest flock foraging together on the side before you enter the woods and return to the visitor’s center.

Saw one fly by from about 100 yards away on the drive, perch briefly in tree, and flew off again over the water. When I resumed driving a short time later, the presumable same bird flew from behind me, fairly low and so close to my car I could easily see the horizontal bars of its chest plumage; appeared to be a fairly large adult, who them flew past herons and egrets at the edge of the water and continued past them. The second peregrine was a different bird, observed about 2PM as I was leaving Mott’s Creek Rd.; this appeared to be an immature.
