Sightings for Friday August 17

Châteauguay, I went to Île Saint Bernard - Refuge faunique Marguerite D'Youville this morning before the anticipated rain, which thankfully did not occur. The water level is quite low, lower than I have ever seen it. As a consequence there were a few more shorebirds than usual. There were some other shorebirds other than what's mentioned below, but I did not bring my scope, so was unable to identify them. - Tom Long
