This afternoon I encountered 24 WILLETS at the park on the wildlife loop near the park office. Also present were 11 CASPIAN TERNS, 39 (more?) GREATER YELLOWLEGS and a scattering of peeps. Lots of YELLOW and PALM WARBLERS, and a few YELLOW-RUMPS. The other bird of interest was a single COMMON GALLINULE. We kicked it up on the western edge on the loop and it flew about 50 yards and landed on a mud flat, giving great looks before retreating to a patch of cattails. The lake level is down and there is some good shorebird habitat along the wildlife trail so it could hold some other surprises.
