Migrants at las Salinas de Aguadulce

On Friday, july 14th, Karl & Rosabel Kaufmann, Chris Rhodes and Darién Montañez stopped over at the Aguadulce Salinas not really expecting to see much, but found a surprising variety of shorebirds: Wilson's, Semipalmated and Collared Plovers; Western, Semipalmated and Least Sandpipers, Short-billed Dowitcher and both yellowlegs. Closer to the beach were a few Wood Storks and one Common and a few Least Terns.
The Black-necked Stilts were everywhere, and some of them had downy chicks following them closely. One seemed to be sitting on its nest, and a few young birds were also seen.
