They are all northish of the offset intersection where Pintail Marsh, Egret Marsh, Mallard Marsh and Mohoff Pond almost touch each other. For a half mile north from the intersection between Mohoff and Mallard conditions seem perfect now for shorebirds, and they have all been there the past few days. To see them you can walk about 2.6 miles round trip from the Pintail parking lot or you can walk a similar distance from Buena Vista Rd to the north.
This morning I saw 7 GREATER YELLOWLEGS, 3 LESSER YELLOWLEGS, 25 LB DOWITCHERS, 50 WESTERN SANDPIPERS, 10 LEAST SANDPIPERS, a RED-NECKED PHALAROPE, a SPOTTED SANDPIPER AND a BLACK-NECKED STILT.
Two days ago a similar group was there, including 2 BNST. The young RUDDY DUCK family has moved there, with 6 juveniles
A 25 lb dowitcher is a very large shorebird Roy Gerig, Salem OR
