Would love to see Don's pictures online, please let us know if they get posted. There has been numerous discussions regarding several pictures of Westerns/Semipalmateds on the PA Facebook pages recently and also among other active birders. Would be nice to look at Don's shots for comparison.
I was certain this would be the highest count for the state, but interestingly eBird highest counts for the state show 50 were logged at the nearby Mt Pleasant Rd pond, also in Lebanon County, in 2012.
