I made the wrong decision last minute this morning and went east to Redmond rather than my usual Discovery Park (where goodies reported). Just so you know it's not a given, I spent an hour scoping the wetlands off Avondale Road around 85th, and did not see Pectoral Sandpiper.
Greater Yellowlegs, 3
Spotted Sandpiper, 1
Long-billed Dowitcher, 1
Killdeer, ~4
Blue-winged Teal, 1
Cinnamon Teal, 1 (a couple females unidentified at distance)
Great Blue Heron
others, including a male Lazuli Bunting

The farthest east pond, also farthest from view, across from about 90th, where a couple Pectorals were reported yesterday, had only a yellowlegs and a couple crows wading. These wetlands will probably close up in a year or two with all the willows planted.
