This morning, there were two UPLAND SANDPIPERS at the sod farm at Deal Road and Troy Mills Rd. The first was way to the north, near the north end. The second was much closer and provided a lengthy scope view. It was near the closest drainage area to Deal Rd to the West of the access road. There were also many KILLDEER present as usual.
I also spotted a pair of the previously reported GRAY PARTRIDGE which were along the edge of Deal Road. They were only a hundred yards or so West of the maintenance shed on the corner.
I was fortunate that there were only a couple of other vehicles using these roads as the dust is just ridiculous right now.
