Upland Sandpiper

28 Aug 2009
Antelope Island Causeway
Davis County, Utah

(E-mail from Tim Avery, 28 Aug 2009)

Steve Sommerfeld just called me and reported finding an UPLAND SANDPIPER north of MM5 about 40 yards out on the mudflats along the Antelope Island Causeway. He said it was about due north of where the large stump is in the mud on the south side of the causeway.

This looks like the first chase-able Upland Sandpiper in Utah in almost 30 years (the last was at Antelope Island as well).

The last sighting in Utah was from 2003 on private property on the southshore of the Great Salt Lake.
