All right in the light

An hour at Holden Creek this morning was made considerably better than my recent evening visits, by simple virtue of having the bright morning sun behind me. Therefore I could actually the shorebirds reasonably well.
There were around 60 or so least sandpipers, a single western sandpiper and 3 semi-palmated sandpipers on the marsh.
3 killdeer were out there too, with the resident pair also in the adjacent fields.
Spotted sandpiper was still present, though no yellowlegs were to be seen.
2 American goldfinch were singing away. I couldn't find anything interesting among the teal.
