Thanks to Curt for the heads-up.
Arriving around 2:45 this afternoon, there were a pair of Pelicans, lots of Greater Yellowlegs, a lesser degree of Lessers, quite a few easy-to-spot Least & Pectoral Sandpipers, Ring-Billed, Franklin's, and Bonaparte's Gulls, at least 3 Dunlins, 2 Long-Billed Dowitchers, several specimens of either Baird's or Semipalmated Sandpipers at the far (southern) end, but too hard to call on account of the horizontal sleet, fog, and lighting. Duck species were: Green Wing and Blue Winged Teal, Gadwall, Mallard, and Shoveler.
No Ibises today.
Had an Eagle fly by, with a good 3 feet of intestine dangling from its talons. That spooked the shorebirds. Then it started to snow.
Will check again tomorrow afternoon, and post if there's a noteworthy update.
