The Maplewood Road fluddle at the hog farm aboiut a mile south of Chicago Road was very active this morning. At least 70 Lesser Yellowlegs were in the muddy water along the road. About 8 Pectoral Sandpipers and 3 Spotted Sandpipers, plus the ubiquitous Killdeer were there too. I couldn't find anything more interesting, but it was pretty cool to see these birds flying around.
