At Parking Lot 3 this morning I had about a dozen species of shorebirds.  Highlights were an American Avocet in breeding plumage about three quarters of a mile down the dike and a Wilson's Phalarope near the beginning of the dike.  The recent rain has reduced the amount of habitat, but there were still a fair number of birds.  At the James Hazen access (Honker's Point), the gate to the parking lot was open.  This made observing the Ospreys on their nest very easy.  One adult and a chick were visible.
