Solitary Sandpiper

Solitary Sandpiper
August 15th

   After work this morning I elected to search for warblers at Six-Mile Cypress Slough.  Arrived about 8:30am and found the place to be very quite. Basically had several active Carolina Wrens and that was about it for the visit.  But I was not really disappointed as I had found my First-of-Season Solitary Sandpiper when I checked the flooded fields behind the Rest Stop area at exit 131 on I-75. on my way to Six-Mile Cypress. The solitary sandpiper was in the company of a lone Western Sandpiper, a couple of Glossy Ibis and about seven Killdeer.
