The Wildlife Drive, between 3:00-4:30. was grass. Eaton Marsh was dry. The corner past Eaton Marsh had both Yellowlegs and Least Sandpipers plus 10+ Great Egrets. Benning Marsh at the beginning had water but no shorebirds when I was there.
East Road was the most promising shorebird area. There were quite a few peeps and Yellowlegs. Everything was very distant and it was hard to distinguish the shorebird species. There were many Mallards, Wood Ducks, and some other Duck species. 80+ Great Egrets, Tundra Swans, and 13 Sandhill Cranes, plus Common Gallinules, Coots, and Great Blue Herons were present.
