Did NOT re-find:
Sandhill cranes
White-winged dove

Also NO Buff-breasted sandpipers at the Keeteman Rd Sod Farms

Must have been the timing.

Shorebird numbers diminished at Winfield.

Was a Hwy 79 bust.

Subject: White-winged Dove at B.K Leach


At 7:45 this morning I saw a White-winged Dove at B.K. Leach's King Lake 
Area. Take Hwy M off Hwy 79 go past the railroad tracks and the first 
bridge. At the second bridge (a large slough, I believe) the bird was 
sitting on the top wire above the Barn Swallows. As I started to use my 
binoculars, the bird flew down into some small trees. I could see clearly 
the large white wing patches when it flew. When it perched, the wing patches 
were also clearly visible. Then it moved out of sight. I could not relocate 
the dove. An hour later when Dave Becher arrived, we still could not refind 
the bird.

A few of us looked for the Sandhill Cranes, but we did not see them.
