This morning at Lake Contrary I observed one Black Tern in basic (winter) plumage and two Forster's and two LEAST TERNS in alternate (breeding) plumage. The only gulls were two Ring-billed. Shorebirds included about 70 Killdeer, several Spotted Sandpiper, several Solitary Sandpipers, quite a few Least Sandpipers and one Pectoral Sandpiper. Also seen Northern Mockingbirds, Loggerhead Shrike, about ten each of Eastern Kingbird, Western Kingbird and Orchard Orioles. And a "smattering" of the usual suspects.
 
Over at Muskrat Lake were one Snow Goose, four Stilt Sandpipers, two Semipalmated Sandpipers and some more of the above mentioned shorebirds.
