I spent a couple of very hot hours at the Crooked River Wetlands in
Prineville. Highlights:

2 Green-winged Teal - Haven't seen any for a while

1 Black-necked Stilt (Wish Avocet would come in. Haven't seen one in the
county since the east county is so dry.)

56 Killdeer

73 Least Sandpiper (probably undercounted. Scattered throughout the

10 Western Sandpiper (Still no Semipalmated Sand for me.)

57 Long-billed Dowitcher

4 Wilson's Snipe

2 Wilson's Phalarope

1 Red-necked Phalarope

8 Spotted Sandpiper

1 Greater Yellowlegs

1 female Tree Swallow attending a nest box with young (Most are gone).
