Thank you for being in touch! I will be in the field until September 19th with 
little or no internet and cell service. Thank you for your patience and I will 
be in touch when I return.

> PLOVER and KILLDEER, as well as the troubling trio of STILT SANDPIPERS,
> LONG-BILLED and SHORT-BILLED DOWITCHERS. We also had PECTORAL sandpipers
> with their distinctively neat breast streaking. We had a flock of 18
> SANDHILL CRANES at the north end of Puddler(and another group of 3 for 21
