First, I missed a good look at a flying shorebird about the same size as Brewer's Blackbird. If I had to give a name, I would say Solitary Sandpiper based on the size and the rump and tail pattern in flight. It flew off from near where some Leasts were around the puddles at the SW corner of the 4th diked pond. It flew over toward the main pond but even though I did a 2nd loop around that, no sign of the bird. The only water or wet ground in the diked ponds is at that 4th one.
Main pond 6 Greater Yellowlegs 3 Long-billed Dowitchers 18 Leasts Spotties and Killdeer, no other species of shorebird seen there this a.m.
Kestrels must have fledged around there as I saw at least 10 individuals today around the main pond and fields to the east. Western Kingbird was feeding a beaten dragonfly to a young kingbird. Nothing new. We are soon going to run out of shorebird habitat at the main pond, based on how much water is rushing into it now.
