It was a foggy, plovery day at Bald Point State Park this afternoon. Five 
PIPING PLOVERS proved present (none were banded) along with the same number 
of Semipalmated Plovers, over a dozen Black-bellies, and around six WILSON'S 
PLOVERS. Four COMMON GOLDENEYE (1 male, 3 female) were in Ochlockonee Bay at 
the edge of visibility; a Common Loon was right up next to the dock. 

Be warned, however: mosquitoes the size of Black-bellied Plovers have staked 
out the park. Swarms of them actually chased me onto and down the beach 
(first time that has happened)...
