270th Str - White-rumped Sandpiper (4), Wilson's Phalarope (3), Least, Semipalmated, and Pectoral Sandpipers, a single Semipalmated Plover. Two Forster's Terns flew over. Bank swallows singing as flying around. Two pipits were there for some reason. A strange-sounding red-winged blackbird at the north end near the water control structure turned out to be a Bobolink. A single white-crowned sparrow with a group of white-throated sparrows. Flushed 2 small stocky sparrows that re-entered the grass never to be seen again. Grasshopper, Le Conte's? I'll never know. Altogether I got more FOYs than I expected.
250th Str - A Black-crowned Night-Heron was in full view when I drove up. It flew as a got up. After a few moments another flew, off to the north. Marsh wrens singing. A male Great-tailed Grackle squeaking. Saw some Soras.
