Finishing up the week at OD;

Wilson's and Red-necked Phalaropes continued though in smaller numbers.

Ruddy Turnstone on Thursday (new). Also on Thursday was the first juvenile Western Sandpiper but there were several on Friday. Also on Friday was the first juvenile Semi-palmated Plover.

At least one possibly two (moving around?) Red Knot(s) on Friday.

Several Dowitchers, didn't have time to pick them apart but a possible "Prairie" Short-billed.

And a juvenile Willet with a down-curved bill and subtlety different jizz inspired me to send a photo to Tom, but western race, not eastern.
