In search of migrating shorebirds, Mitch Blanton and I went to Eide Road today, arriving at 1:30 p.m., on a low rising tide. The ponds had a lot of water in them and we were delighted to discover many more birds than we had anticipated, as follows:

Long-billed Dowitchers - 120+
Western Sandpipers - 150+
Least Sandpipers - 20+
Greater Yellowlegs - 8
Lesser Yellowleg - 1
Pectoral Sandpipers - 6
Killdeer - 20+
Wilson's Phalarope - juvenile -1
Semipalmated Sandpiper - 1 probable

Nearly all of the birds were in the second large pond.
