I spent a few hours birding Fern Ridge Ponds 5 & 6 this morning after the
heavy rain (Josh, you looked soaked!). While the rains of yesterday and
this morning covered some mudflats, there is still a good deal of
appropriate habitat remaining which should bode well for the rest of
September. Shorebirds were in good numbers including:

1 Black-bellied Plover

45 Semipalmated Plover

4 Killdeer


2 Bairds Sandpiper

125 Least Sandpiper

450 Western Sandpiper

4 Short-billed Dowitcher

150 Long-billed Dowitcher

6 Wilsons Snipe

16 Red-necked Phalarope

80 Greater Yellowlegs

32 Lesser Yellowlegs

I also found my first Lincolns Sparrows of the year near the gate.
