I birded Riverlands this morning with Ken Hollinga, a visiting birder from
California.   The water level has come up a bit, but there are still lots of
sand bars and mudflats exposed - and fair numbers of shorebirds.

Highlights

Red-necked Phalarope - 1 in Ellis Bay on a far out shallow mudflat about 1/2
way between Heron Pond and the observation tower.

Black-bellied Plovers - 2 in same place as Red-necked Phalarope

Wilson's Phalarope - 2- male and female - in the new duck club water off the
Confluence Park Rd

Lark Sparrow - 1 on a wire while walking from the Gate at the Confluence
Park Rd to the new duck club water on Red School Rd

Semi-palmated Plovers - 10 in the almost dry slough above the Stonehenge
parking lot

Surf Scoter - 1 way out off Lincoln Shields.  Thanks to Ken for this one.

Other migrants of interest:  lots of both types of yellowlegs, solitary and
spotted sandpipers, least and pectoral sandpipers.
