Spent some time looking for interesting breeding records. The Eared Grebes
are all gone bar two and these showed no indication of nesting behavior.
There were 2 pairs of Western Grebes with young, 3 pairs of Clark's with
young, and one mixed pair with young. A female Redhead had 12 chicks and
there were 2-3 Mallard broods and a single Gadwall brood.

4 Least Terns were fishing in the river. Late migrant/summering shorebirds
incliuded 2 SB Dowitchers and a Red-necked Phalarope.
