I've gotten some emails about tips on finding the Northern Pintail and White-rumped Sandpipers at E. L. Huie. I only hit Huie every once in a while, and the place is probably hit everyday by birders, so I'm not completely up on the status of stuff there. It is a neat place to stop for a quick ten minute bird fix.
I'm not sure why no one else is seeing the Pintail. It can be hard to see when it is hunkered down in with the Mallards. It's easy to overlook. I've seen it every time I've gone, I believe, since April or early May. I think even the field trips there have missed it, though. It seems to mostly frequent the big south pond.
The same with the White-rumped Sandpipers. I found them in the vegetation by the shore of the big south pond on Friday. Tuesday they were on the drained pumped station pond. I do not expect these to continue though because it is already late for them.
I put some photos of the the White-rumps and the Pintail from Fri and Tues on my website:
I hope this helps. Good Luck!
