I see you got the bird this AM, congratulations!
James Huntington and I went down yesterday and saw it. Definitely worth the trip. Emiquon NWR is about two hours south of the Quad Cities or about an hour east of Keokuk. It was built to help restore habitats destroyed when the flow of the Illinois River was reversed many, many years ago. There is also a white morph male Ruff at the dike located near Goofy Ridge. This is 25 minutes from the Little Stint location. Both locations have hundreds to thousands of shorebirds right now, with great diversity.
The stint is being seen between the North Globe and South Globe units, park here (40.3418277, -90.0929520). Park here for the Ruff, (40.3995729, -89.9418516).
Good birding, Brandon Caswell Marion
