Walking the East Pond on the tail end of high tide Tuesday morning was productive. There are still some shorebirds around and ducks are building.
Highlights included: American Avocet Pectoral Sandpiper(2) White-rumped Sandpiper (11) Stilt Sandpiper(8) Dunlin There were hundreds of teal, the majority of which were Green-winged, but with modest numbers of Blue-winged mixed in. Northern Shoveler numbers are up as well with 225 seen from the Raunt south. A Caspian Tern rounded out the highlights.
