Several folks were there as the park opened to scope the flooded play fields at Lake Crabtree this morning. The water has receded from the lawn by about half, but there were still a few shorebirds around:

1 White-rumped Sandpiper (continuing)
~10 Semipalmated Sandpipers
4+ Spotted Sandpipers
3 Killdeer

A little after 8, a non-breeding Cattle Egret flew in, and moved towards the lakeshore. It was still visible at 9.

Good birding!
