Hi all, had a fun time this morning with a good showing of Shorebirds at the first Pond. Peeps numbered about 100+ birds first thing but flock broke up shortly after. A Short-billed Dowitcher hung out near the inlet, showed very well, and did a few circuits in flight calling frequently. A Long-billed Dowitcher was present along the Dam, the Two never associated. Single Solitary Sandpiper and Lesser Yellowlegs remained well hidden in vegetation also at the Dam. Two Semipalmated Sandpipers seen together in the peep flock. Four Wilson's Phalarope departed early.
