The birding at Presqu'ile Provincial Park continues to be excellent. Today at Owen Point we observed a number of shorebirds including 1 Buff-breasted Sandpiper and 1 Western Sandpiper along with a number of Baird's and White-rumped Sandpiper between 9:30 and 11:30am. The breeding plumage Eared Grebe was also present. At 2:15pm we observed a light morph Parasitic Jaeger over Popham Bay. Good birding, Bruce

The juvenile Least Sandpiper is easy to recognize by its reddish brown feather edging and yellowish leg colour.
