Lesser and greater yellowlegs beginning to make their way back this way on 
their return journey South (Failed breeders? Females?). More of the lesser 
yellowlegs than greater. Also a few semipalmated sandpipers as well. Seen with 
Jackie Baker along Puddler's Dike during weekly Refuge Survey today (July 3rd). 
Caspian terns beginning to arrive in small numbers as well. In the meantime we 
are seeing the next generation of mallards, hooded mergs, wood ducks, coots, 
gallinules, pied-billed grebes and even spotted sandpipers. It's cool to see 
the explosion of new life even as the Yellowlegs' arrival reminds us that no 
Summer lasts forever. Enjoy these long days!!
