American Golden-Plovers (28) were at Frog Bayou WMA in the Arkansas River Valley today. Other shorebirds in the valley (including a brief stop at Alma Wastewater) included Killdeer, Greater Yellowlegs, Least Sandpiper, Pectoral Sandpiper, and Wilsonís Snipe.
Duck migration is going in the Valley too: Gadwall, American Wigeon, Mallard, Blue-winged Teal, Northern Shoveler, Green-winged Teal, Canvasback, Ring-necked Duck, Lesser Scaup, Hooded Merganser, and Ruddy Duck.
A flock of about 40 Rusty Blackbirds were foraging in a wet grassy field at Frog.
