Subject: [sd-birds] Belle sewage lagoons
Shorebird/waterbird migration continues at the Belle Fourche sewage lagoon
with noticeable turnover in species composition compared to last week. New
this evening were foy Red-necked Phalaropes mixed in with the Wilson's
Phalaropes, ~40 dowitchers (assumed to be long-billed), Stilt Sandpipers,
and Semipalmated Sandpipers and Plovers. Gone were the ibis, Caspian Terns,
yellowlegs, and Least Sandpipers. At least 3 Black-necked Stilts are still
there.
