Hi Ontbirders,

This afternoon, Bruce Falls and I found a juvenile Western Sandpiper 
on the mudflats at the mouth of the Rouge River in Toronto It was 
with about 20 juvenile Semipalmated Sandpipers and 12 juvenile 
Leasts. We also saw 13 juvenile Stilt Sandpipers. 15 Rusty Blackbirds 
were very close on the mud.

Directions: Exit 401 at Whites Road south to Granite, right turn then 
left onto Rosebank. At end of Rosebank, do not cross railroad tracks, 
but turn right then almost immediately left onto Dyson. At end of 
Dyson, turn and park only on right side. Take trail downhill and 
across bridge over Rouge. Mudflats on your right. Or exit 401 onto 
Port Union Road south to Lawrence. Left turn and continue into Rouge 
Beach Park. Mudflats on your left.

Good birding,
