The last birds I saw in the gloaming Friday evening were six Sandhill Cranes walking through shallow water on the north side of the road.
Just before that I spent an hour and a half trying to find the ten Whimbrels Jim Wallace had texted me about seeing.
Several hours after receiving his text I was able to ID two for sure but they were with twenty Willets and several other large unidentified sandpipers moving around in front of a row of phragmites reeds. And my vision sucks.
4 Franklins Gulls,
1 Marbled Godwit,
47 !! Willets
37 White-Faced Ibis
6 Sandhill Cranes
40 Yellow-headed BB

Since then migrants have been moving through quickly. Maria Rodriguez and I arrived in Hart’s Basin early Sunday morning and had a hard time finding much to look at.
There were only five pelicans, four dowitchers, one Willet, a few YHBB and Corms, various Grebes and dabbling ducks.
We then checked out Sweitzer SP where two Caspian Terns were the birds of the day.
