Subject: [IN-BIRD-L] Lake Lemon shorebirds - Sep 12 - White-r. Sandpipers
With a water draw-down on Lk. Lemon, some shorebird habitat has been created adjacent to the channel. This evening, we had 7 shorebird species from the deck, including a Stilt Sandpiper and 7 White-rumped Sandpipers (all adults). We took kayaks out to get a closer look at the White-rumps and Susan got some diagnostic photos.
