Subject: IBET Burnham Prairie NP (Cook) - Shorebird update
quick update...


Missing today:
Short-billed Dowitcher
Greater Yellowlegs
Semipalmated Sandpier


New bird for the day: Stilt Sandpiper (thanks to Ted Wolff!!!)
Bird was in the west ponds. Large mixed flock of shorebirds was alternating between north and south of the drive. A kestrel and coop would occasionally stir it up a little bit. Stilt sandpiper was in this flock - nice dark barring, still in breeding plumage. Great views!!


Ended with 56 species of birds


See ya!
