There were at least 8 males today, mostly behind the cattail and bulrush. More than 100 shorebirds, mostly LB Dowitchers and Western Sandpipers but also BN Stilts, Spotted Sandpipers, G&L Yellowlegs. Plenty of pelicans and Caspian Terns. Potholes Reservoir had a couple of Forster’s Terns and Clarks Grebes with many Western Grebes and pelicans.
On the way home, at least a half dozen Common Nighthawks at Vernita Rest Area Benton County (Hwy 24) alternately flying around and roosting in the trees there.

Found a few Tricolored Blackbirds at the Para Ponds this afternoon. Seldom found them there in middle of July, probably an indication of nesting.
