The juvenile LONG-BILLED DOWITCHER was still present at the same Hegewisch Marsh location previously posted by Ethan Gyllenhaal during my visit between 5:00 and 5:45 pm on Saturday afternoon (9/9/17). The juvenile SHORT-BILLED DOWITCHER and the 3 STILT SANDPIPERS were also still present at the same location/time.

The juvenile SANDERLING was still present at Burnham Prairie during my visit between 6:00 and 6:15 pm on Saturday afternoon (9/9/17).

A spotting scope is required at both locations.

All great finds - thanks for posting, Ethan!

Hey all,



I just got done looking at a juvenile Long-billed Dowitcher
(a county bird for me, #303ish) in the NW quadrant of the
main open area at Hegewisch Marsh. It was viewed from the
standard viewing spot, the raised open area on the SW side
of the main marsh. Also present were 3 Stilt Sandpipers, 1
Short-billed Dowitcher (also juvenile), a smattering of
common shorebirds, and the continuing family of 5 Common
Gallinules.

The rest of Calumet wasn't amazing. Burnham marsh had a
Sanderling and Least Bittern (by my dad, it flew before I
got there). Big, Indian Ridge, and 126th street marshes were
all dead.



I started the morning with a lakewatch off of Park 566, in
hopes of abusing the lovely E winds we're getting.
Highlights were a Black Tern feeding off the spot I was
watching from for the full 3 hours I was there and a distant
jaeger sp. On my walk over, I had one each of lingering
Grasshopper Sparrow, Dickcissel, and Bobolink. The harbor
off of Rainbow Beach had 2 long-staying Red-breasted Mergs
and a small coot flock.



More exciting than all of that, though, was a stunning baby
Five-lined Skink near the road where Park 566 meets a fence
along the border of Rainbow Beach.
