Slow Day at LSCMP – Ruddy Turnstones

Birding was slow this morning at Lake St. Clair Metropark although the White-rumped Sandpiper was reported to be on the beach. I could not locate it but I did come into a flock of a dozen Ruddy Turnstones… there also were a good number of Least Sandpipers and Dunlin and one Semipalmated Sandpiper.. there were about a dozen Semipalmated Plovers there also… I had a Canada Warbler and Tennessee Warbler in the Maple Woods along with some American Redstarts, Magnolia Warblers and Northen Waterthrush… There also were quite a few Blackpoll Warblers around.. Kevin, Wayne and I got to see 2 Least Bitterns near the small pond…. FOY for me…
