I also observed and can verify 2 White-faced and 1 Glossy Ibis. Reid & Pam Allen were there at the same time I was this morning, and we all agreed on the correct ID for both species.
Besides the Short-billed Dowitchers that were there (several on the private sheep pasture and more on the state wetland), I also saw what appeared to be one Long-billed, based upon more barring rather than spots on sides of the breast and a bit more contrasty dark scapulars with white tips. There were also at least a couple of Wilson's Phalaropes on the state marsh east of the private pasture.
