On Aug 28, 2006, I checked Perry Super Sod Farm and found two Buff-breasted Sandpipers.
I also checked the Marshallville Sod Farm and found 52 Upland Sandpipers.
On July 30, Michael Beohm and I discovered at least 24 Upland Sandpipers in Marshallville, and we thought as many
as 52 total in the distance. It is interesting that I counted exactly 52 this time. I only checked a small
part of the sod farm, so there may have been even more.
In August many birders were able to relocate about 30 or so of these birds. I assume that 52 would be a new
high count for GA. Quite a drive from the Atlanta area, but what a treat!
