Jeff Nordstrom and I went to Summer Lake today. We were looking for shorebirds and migrant passerines. We found both but the most unusual passerine was a Western Tanager. There were good numbers of Western and Least Sandpipers. We found nearly 10 Baird's Sandpipers and nearly 1000 Long-billed Dowitchers. Black-necked Stilts and American Avocets were still present along with quite a few Greater Yellowlegs. The highlights were a Black-bellied Plover and a Snowy Egret.
