The shorebirds are down to a couple of hundred over at Rosecrans Memorial Airport. In order of numbers from most abundant to least abundant are Pectoral Sandpipers, Killdeer, Least, Solitary, Spotted, Semipalmated Sandpipers and Lesser Yellowlegs. There were three (3) Common Nighthawks perched on utility wires at the airport this morning.
   
  Eurasian Collared-Doves are becoming more numerous at the Saint Joseph Stockyards. There are usually 25-30 Great-tailed Grackles there also.
   
  Swallows and martins are beginning to congregate in ever increasing numbers around Lake Contrary.
   
  I observed a very nice adult, light phase Swainson's Hawk this morning at Muskrat Lake south of Saint Joseph.
   
  Chipping, Lark and Grasshopper Sparrows continue to be seen in relatively good numbers.
   
  Sorry for the miscue on the id of Steven's shorebird. I needed to read his description more carefully.
