Checked a few local Tippecanoe/Benton county shorebird spots. Overall the
future looks bright here. A nice mudflat has developed at Pine Creek. I
expect it to only get better. The 790N field that always floods is a
massive flooded field at the moment. There is also a nice flat that is
developing at this spot too. Both spots could be gold in a week or two.
