Subject: [Ohio-birds] Wilderness Rd peat pits for shorebirds, Wayne Co.
I was at the Wilderness Rd peat pits this morning from 8-10am. The water
that was pumped out several weeks ago is slowly seeping back in. Conditions
for shorebirds right now are excellent. Viewing to the west from the
eastern-most dirt road that turns north just west of the short bridge when
coming from Elyria Rd is optimal in the low morning light and the
shorebirds are fairly close. The Hudsonian godwit that had been seen there
for several days was not there. I observed the following species and

Am. Golden Plover 35
Killdeer 25+ (estimate)
Semipalmated plover 2
Greater yellowlegs 1
Lesser yellowlegs 10
Solitary sandpiper 1
Semipalmated sandpiper 5
Western sandpiper 1 - recurring bird
Least sandpiper 3
Pectoral sandpiper 35
Stilt sandpiper 8
Short-billed dowitcher 3
Wilson's snipe 3
