The "pond" on the south side of the road that is in front of the Sobey
warehouse is often a great spot to view shorebirds, albeit in small numbers.
Consider the following:

July 28-4 Lesser Yellowlegs,1 Greater Y'leg,4 Spotteds,3 Leasts,3 STILT
SANDPIPERS,
2 COMMON SNIPES,4 SHORT-BILLED DOWITCHERS and 5 Killdeers.

July 29 at 10AM-- 2 Lesser Yellowlegs,1Greater Y'leg,3 Spotteds,1
Dowitcher,5 Leasts,1 Stilt Sandp. and 15 Killdeers.

Turn north off Victoria St. in Whitby 1 block west of the Iroquois Sports
Complex, then westerly in front of the long warehouse until you come to the
pond that literally sits astride the roadway.
