I went out to the black dirt after work this evening and looked for the American Golden-Plovers that have been seen out there. Reports of as many as 80 birds can be found on eBird in the past week, with the most recent sighting being a single bird seen yesterday. I was away in Vermont for a long weekend, so I have missed out thus far. I did try for the birds the end of last week without any luck, and I was again unsuccessful in locating any tonight. I did, however, get a super consolation prize when I came across a trio of Buff-breasted Sandpipers that were not very far from the road. Buff-breasted Sandpiper is a bird that I really like, one of my favorites for sure, so I was pretty happy to get such great looks and to finally get some decent shots.
