3 Black-bellied Plovers
1 Black-necked Stilt
1 American Avocet
100+ Willets
6+ Lesser Yellowlegs
15 Forster's Terns
3 Caspian Terns
  Between the Shiloh 3 and Weather Tower Rd intersects  there were at least 3
healthy sized mixed flocks of Dunlin, Western and Least  Sandpipers, most
numerous being the Dunlin and Westerns (600+ and 300+  respectively).  A handful
of individual Greater Yellowlegs along the  way.


See you out there!
