Hey Everybirdy,

  Quick hit- Peacock's Pocket is open.  Drove it last weekend and found a
couple of Stilt Sandpipers with about 100 Long-billed Dowitchers.  No
Long-billed today.  But in the area of the 6 wooden pilings, were a few
hundred Dunlin on the Indian River lagoon side foraging amidst some fresh
shoots of river grass.  Occassionally flushing for no apparent reason, the
flock mixes frequently, but I found at least half dozen Stilt Sandpipers
among them.  It will test your patience, particularly on a grey day like
today!!  Also found a lone Red Knot as well.
  Plenty of yellowlegs (both sp.), Glossy Ibis, Pied-billed Grebes (had one
flock of 21 swiimming together), and scattered Northern Shovelers and Coots.

  See you out there!
