In a short but close encounter with a large flock of Dunlin, at least 3 Western Sandpipers, and probably a lot more were present at Boundary Bay.
I haven't had any free time in the past 2 months - so it was good to get out for a bit.

Presqu'ile Provincial Park - a good bird for us in the East. We didn't know the bird had been sighted in the morning. Note the droop at the end of the longer bill (shorter in Semipalmated Sandpiper) and the bit of rusty on the scapulars. I didn't realize until two days later that the bird reported earlier in the day had different markings so a second bird.

Nice having the chance to see these birds in their breeding habitat! Western Sandpipers were quite conspicuous and relatively tame!
