White-rumped Sandpipers in Monroe County

While birding western Monroe County yesterday, Michael David and I found a flock of nine White-rumped Sandpipers with a few Killdeer in a flooded soybean field near the village of Kresgeville. This was my first record of this species for the county! This location provides decent shorebird habitat only after heavy rains, so our timing was great after the big storms that passed through earlier in the week.
