A decent number of shorebirds on the pond today indicating new arrivals. The 
changes show a drop in the number of Short-billed Dowitchers but an uptick with 
the peeps with an estimated 1200 Semipalmated Sandpipers.

12 species of shorebirds, highlighted by 78 STILT SANDPIPERS and 3 Pectoral 
Sandpipers which included a juvenile. Also of note was a juvenile Lesser 

2 Bonaparte’s Gulls continue to put in sporadic appearances on the pond. The 
duckage continue to host at least 2 Green-winged Teals.

NPS and volunteers put out some wooden pallets near the entrance of the East 
Pond north end. The intention is to aid in navigating the muck in that area. 
Please be sure to express your thanks when you drop by the Refuge.

While it was not too bad in terms of the heat the mosquitos continue in good 
numbers. Bring repellent.

others, rather than to be false, and to incur my own abhorrence." ~ Frederick
