White-rumped Sandpiper in lousy light...    They have a very un-sandpiper-like "chinky" call!

 

 

A little Semipalmated Sandpiper was further away from the boardwalk...

 

Interacting Stilt Sandpipers making an interesting duit sound I had never heard...

 

A couple of American Avocets have a scuffle...

 

Along the trail, an annoyed pair of Killdeer "walk" me all the way to the Tropical Zone (almost)!

 

 

Back in the Tropical Zone, the Mourning Warbler actually shows himself!    His sharp call note also gives him away!
