I went to Bald Knob to check water levels and found Coal Chute Rd still impassable. However I did find a flooded field nearby that yielded numerous peeps and others. 1 Black-bellied Plover and a Ruddy Turnstone right next to it. Pectoral Sandpipers, several hundred peeps, only Least Sandpiper confirmed. 5-10 Dunlin, a Lesser Yellowlegs, and one female Wilson's Phalarope. The field is at the corner of Frackin Rd and Moody Rd. Here are the coordinates 35.27201, -91.54274
I returned from my last job in Utah last week and I will be off for Indiana on Saturday to work a banding station this summer. Cheers to you all!
