I went out to Fern Ridge this afternoon and ended up walking the big loop south of the platform and along the western edge of Barn and Redhead Ponds.
I was not expecting to find any shorebirds but they are showing up. Mud is starting to form along the south east corner of Pond #5 ( east of platform ) and along the eastern edge. Most of the shorebirds were out on Pelican Island and on the southeastern corner of pond #5.
Least 60 Western 49 Peep species 50 Greater Yellowlegs- 30-40 Spotted Sp- 2 Black Bellied Plover-1 Pelican Island Killdeer-10 A Forster’s Tern was out on Pelican Island. One had been reported previously in the area earlier in the spring.
