Hello Bird People,

I must admit that I would have much rather have been looking for the
Little Stint downstate but I am no longer able to drive that far due
to leg problems & long dives & I didn't know of anyone to go with so
that was out. So I made the best of it & after checking ebird I
decided to try the Reservoir at Wood Dale as a report from Saturday
showed some shorebird activity. I did re-find the Semipalmated Plover
seen before but not the Dowitcher, again. I was there for 3 hours in
the a.m.
