By early June, we had Long-billed Curlews returning to the coast, then earlier this week, the first adult Western Willets were noted at various locations across Central Texas, and now we have Greater Yellowlegs in the South Plains. Yesterday, I noted 3 at a playa near Southland in Garza County. I am now more convinced that the 3 I had in Pecos County last week were, indeed, S-bound migrants as opposed to summering. Before long, Least Sandpipers will be back.
Good birding! Justin Bosler currently in the air between Dallas and Austin
