I hung out there at Hatfield this pm for a couple of hours. I only birded the first pond. With a few OBOL posts yesterday about shorebirds, i thought I would check Redmond and Hatfield. None seen at Redmond. I did feel joy with a Lark Sparrow though. I missed it each time last year.
Hatfied 2 Greater Yellowlegs 1 Least Sandpiper. I suppose there could have been more but even these just strolled about or preened in vegetation most of the time I watched. SO many Killdeer around that it makes size comparisons with other species easy.
Continuing Tundra Swans, 3 at front pond 1 Blue-winged Teal 10 Eared Grebes, apparently on their nests on the weedy areas. No Emperor with the many Canadas Lots of Bank Swallows.
