Aaron Steed and I checked out the flooded fields along Hooper Lane this
morning. It was raining heavily and birds kept moving around, due to
working machinery (which eventually stopped) and 1-2 Northern Harriers that
flushed the flocks.

Despite the rainy conditions, we had the following highlights:

Black-bellied Plover 10
American Golden Plover 7
Semipalmated Plover 8
Stilt Sandpiper 2
Baird's Sandpiper 1
Buff-breasted Sandpiper 2
Forster's Tern 3
Bobolink 70+

The e-bird link, along with some photos is as follows:
