After birding with Tommie I finished the auto-tour loop and added a male
cinnamon teal, which was in the Pelican pool close to where it turns
into a marsh. The bird was among blue-winged teals. Another couple of
birds that I added were: herring gull and a solitary sandpiper (snow
goose pool).

I think Tommie did not mention a single dunlin that we observed in the
Mallard marsh. Other shorebirds included Wilson's phalaropes, pectoral,
least and Baird's sandpipers, both yellowlegs and long-billed
dowitchers; plus what Tommie reported earlier.

The black-necked stilt (SW corner of Mallard marsh) was a beauty. I will
send Patrick some pics to post on mobirds.

Later,
