I did a half-day lake watch and had an Avocet, shorebirds and Common and Forster's Terns. I also ran into Bob Huguenard later at Pierce Rd., where I added 4 Solitary Sandpipers, 10 Semipalmated Plovers, the continuing SB Dowitcher, Least SP's, 4 Semipalmated Sandpipers and 2 Lesser Yellowlegs.
Michigan City -8:15 am-12:15 pm:
American Avocet-1 on beach and fly-by later
Ruddy Turnstone-7 including one photographed with fishing line coming out of it's bill-must have swallowed a hook.
Least Sandpiper-9 including a fly-by flock of 7 when wind shifted to NE
