Hey, everybody. It's been fun to read the reports of birds in the storm today, Wed., May 2. I can add that Walden Ponds was nice and birdy during the lunch hour today. Highlight was an early male Blackpoll Warbler west of Cottonwood Marsh a ways. Shorebirds off the Cottonwood Marsh boardwalk included small flocks of dowitchers and Wilson's Phalaropes, plus an impressive 8 Solitary Sandpipers.
