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!!
