Observation details

First heard, then seen. I was sitting out in the yard, watching for flyover shorebirds when I heard the "plee-o-wee" long, mournful calls of BBPLs. I looked up, and saw a flock of 50 birds flying low overhead. This species was on the move tonight-- BBPL flocks were reported at both local shorebird watch sites: Bucktoe Creek Preserve and Middle Run Natural Area.
