Birders,

The ibis headed north around 5:30 (according to Vic Webber, who was about 10 min ahead of me) . I didn't check the northern parts of Dunbar to see if they landed.

As of 6:15 there were 7 Marbled Godwits at the 270th pool. Also present were 7 dowitchers. They appeared to be Short-biled, but I'm going to give some photos additional study. There were 8 other species of shorebirds present.

When I make trips to Dunbar, I revisit the 270th pool at least twice, as more times than not, new things stop in. Such was the case tonight. The godwits were not present 20 prior.

Bird on!

There are now a group of ~40 White-faced Ibis at Dunbar Slough. 1 of them was suspect as Glossy, but I could not confirm due to distance and lighting. It clearly did not have a well-outlined face. It is either Glossy or most likely a younger White-faced.

Viewed from parking area on B Ave, just north or the S curve. Approx 1 mile north or 290th.

New birds are dropping in like hot cakes with the arrival of this strong north wind. Forster's Terns, 4 dowitcher spp, and more.

Birders,

In western Greene County at Dunbar Slough there are currently approximately 60 American Avocets.

To view them a scope is needed. On 240th, just west of the slough habitat the road goes up a hill. Park on the north side of the road and scope south, southeast to the opposite end of the wetland in the distance. They were tucked against the southeast shoreline.

Bird on!
