This morning Lloyd Davis checked out the north shore of Newnans Lake (just east of Gainesville, Alachua Co., for you newcomers) and came up with a dozen shorebird species. Here's his list, with tallies for most species but not all: Semipalmated Plover 3 (first of the fall) Killdeer Black-necked Stilt 8 Greater Yellowlegs 4 Lesser Yellowlegs 52 Sanderling 2 (first of the fall) peep, sp. ~50 (Semipalmated, Western, and Least) Pectoral Sandpiper 55+ Stilt Sandpiper 9+ Short-billed Dowitcher 2 No gulls or terns. Five Roseate Spoonbills still around. Nobody's checked the south end of the lake, where the American White Pelicans were, in quite some time.
