Apparently I missed the Snowy plovers yesterday, but it was the best day birding yet this spring for me.  The highlights for me were:
   
  37 American avocets - In a flock north of the lookout from Eagle Point.  I wanted to get a better look  from the lookout, but there were so many birds feeding on the adjacent mudflats I did not want to disturb them.  
  Black necked stilt
  Hudsonian godwit
  Marbled godwit - 10
  Sandhill cranes - 2, near Cattail pool
  Yellow headed blackbirds
  Clay colored sparrow
  Lark sparrow (in the same tree as the clay colored)
  100+ semipalmated plovers
   
  The only shorebird species I did not see that I was hoping for was the white faced ibis.
   
  Over 100 species seen in the refuge.  It was a great day.
