Yesterday morning (8/27), Erla Beegle found a Wood Stork at the west end of Lake Wheeler where the Wilson's Phalarope was a few weeks ago. The stork apparently flew south around noon but was relocated by Sam Jolly and myself yesterday around 7 pm foraging in the back slough not visible from the Penny Rd overlook. It is possible to walk along the shoreline to get a better view the mudflats. Use caution on Penny Rd.
