Just returned from the Black River Riparian Area in Renton off Monster. It took about 30 minutes of walking the trail and checking the mud, but it was worth it. I saw 2 SOLITARY SANDPIPERS close to where Jeff reported them earlier.

Too much stress and a lack of free time to muse is a prison from which one cannot easily escape.

early this afternoon, Cedar River Mouth had lots of Canada Geese, Mallards and Gadwall, plus a few Green-winged Teal and a lone Northern Shoveler, but, alas, no Aythya species. Water levels are too high for shorebirds. Headed to Black River Riparian Area to check on the Solitary Sandpipers, and was amazed to find FOUR today! Spent nearly an hour watching them bully each other whenever imaginary lines were crossed. Relatively strong supercilium on one made me go back to the car for the scope, but it's definitely not the Wood Sandpiper I had hoped for... Also three Least Sandpipers and a pair of Green Herons.
