Betsy and I checked the Lower Lake Road X Burgess Road hotspot early this morning and had a WHIMBREL calling while flying over. It actually landed very briefly in the plowed field before taking off and flying toward the lake while calling. Shorebirds in the puddle were: 6 Semi. Plover, 2 Killdeer, 5 Least Sand, 30 Semi. Sand, and 4 Lesser Yellowlegs. We also heard a Greater Yellowlegs.
At Golden Hill SP, we had ten species of warblers, including one MOURNING and two BLUE-WINGEDS. Other birds of note were BROWN THRASHER and PURPLE FINCH.
