The highlight of the visit was undoubtedly this Stilt Sandpiper, the first of the year for me and a nice adult still in breeding plumage. It is hard to tell from the photo since it was so far away, but I could see the reddish cheek patch in my scope. The Stilt Sandpiper is the bird on the right. Note the white eyebrow and curved bill.

As much as I do love summer, this gets me excited for fall migration!
