The drawdown to winter pool level at Shenango Res. began very late this
year, and as of now there is still very little mud at the West River area.
However the reservoir level (893.31') is finally low enough to expose *some*
mud and today seven species of shorebirds were present:



Black-bellied Plover 1

Killdeer 39

Pectoral Sandpiper 5

Wilson's Snipe 3

Spotted Sandpiper 2

Solitary Sandpiper 2

Lesser Yellowlegs 2
