Hi Tweeters,

Yesterday morning, one of our local birders found 3 black-necked Stilts at
Shillapoo Lake which is about a mile northwest of Vancouver Lake in Clark
County. Randy Hill and I went down to see them without success. However,
it was great to see shorebirds there:

Black-bellied Plover: 7 (an unusually high number for this county)
Greater Yellowlegs: 10
Lesser Yellowlegs: 1
BAIRD'S SANDPIPER: 1 photos attached to ebird report
Least Sandpiper: 75
Wilson's Snipe: 1


The Baird's which appeared to be a 2020 hatch year bird transitioning to
adult plumage (IMHO) was about 30 feet away from where one showed up on
April 4, 2018. It was interesting to see that 2 Baird's were seen in
Okanogan County today or yesterday.

Keep your eyes and ears .... skyward.
