[Ontbirds]Migrant Upland Sandpipers over Brighton

Hi all,

I just saw two Upland Sandpipers flying over my yard in north  
Brighton - my first in 14 years at this house.  They were flying over  
about 200 feet up at 8:30 a.m., calling back and forth occasionally,  
and in general were doing slow circular loops overhead, all the while  
heading NE.  This species is, in my opinion, quite rare in the  
Brighton area and is only very infrequently seen during migration -  
usually like this, a lucky fly-over.
