Subject: IBET Long-billed dowitcher Techny N (cook co.)
Thanks to Al Stokie for this lifer.  When it flies there is a long, nice diamond-like, pure white mark on its lower back and rear end.  Very cool.  Also 3-4 yellowlegs, one with something orange on its foot that's making it jump around and act weird but was feeding and flying ok.  Lots of killdeer.  Likely blue-winged teal (4), mallards, great blue herons, one great egret.
One black-crowned night heron.  Had a 99% likely harrier hunting over the golf course driving by it.  Hawk perched but can't ID will post to fb ID group.
Techny Regular, the regulars :)  Nothing much but great blue herons, mallards, egrets and killdeer.  One yellowlegs, 3 solitary sandpipers.
Visited around 6pm for dowitcher.
Not complete lists.
