Subject: Lawarence County - eBird Report - Shaner Road, Oct 6, 2019
I stopped at the gravel ponds along Shaner Road on my way home from the great 3RBC outing at Maurice K. Goddard State Park as Barb Griffith had seen Sandhill Cranes there recently. When I arrived, 20 Sandhill Cranes were present. There is a lot of mud at the moment and I found a Short-billed Dowitcher, Great Egret, Greater Yellowlegs, and 4 Least Sandpipers.
Sharing is half the fun of birding.
