Subject: [HMBirds] Dowitcher and Friends. eBird Report - Wrights Loop North, Apr 26, 2018

> Wrights Loop North, Saratoga, New York, US
> Apr 26, 2018 1:25 PM - 2:00 PM
> Protocol: Traveling
> 0.5 mile(s)
> Comments: Was amazed when I arrived to find the entire area north of Wright's Loop flooded including Riverfront Park. The shorebirds that were spread out over pond and tussocks were forced to the edges on west parallel to rte 4. Green-winged Teal were still around, but were farther away on the eastern edges.
> Liz C arrived about 10 minutes after I did and then Stacy and Mark Robinson came. We observed shorebirds and nesting Bald Eagle.
> I went to the entrance to Riverfront Park and walked a few feet beyond the gate and was able to look back at the rest of the group and saw a few Yellowlegs that were not visible form Wright's Loop. Alas, I had to leave sooner than I wanted for family responsibilities.
