For those who might cross the river into Illinois:

The pump station road, on the Swan Lake division of the Two Rivers NWR in
Calhoun Co. (across the Brussels ferry), has some nice shorebird habitat,
with considerable mud and shallow water.  Present today were about 55
American Golden Plover (only one of which was beginning to acquire breeding
plumage), dozens of Pectoral Sandpipers, two or more Baird's Sandpipers,
one Dunlin, a few snipe, and both species of yellowlegs. Others reported
seeing Stilt Sandpiper and dowitcher sp. (presumably Long-billed, by the
date). Also out on the mud were two American Pipits,  The volcano area had
several alternate-plumaged Bonaparte's Gulls.
