Solitary Sandpiper, Least Sandpiper

I came across a great place where I thought some shorebirds might show up a few weeks ago. Its called Lane's Creek. The creek runs into the Saint John River and found two Great Blue Heron there and some Double-creasted Cormorants there and made a mental note to go back there again.
This afternoon I found five Killdeer, a couple Solitary and Spotted Sandpipers, three Greater Yellowlegs and three Least Sandpipers. I was quite surprised to see so many shorebirds in Carleton County.
