A 15 minute run through Eagle Bluffs revealed that shorebird habitat remains
in Pool 2 - and a lovely breeding plumage Stilt Sandpiper has joined a small
collection of Least and Pectoral Sandpipers, and a Lesser Yellowlegs.
Didn't have time to check the distribution channel.
 
Don't know if this was reported earlier this year, but there was a Western
Kingbird (perhaps two, but never both seen at same time) on the wires near
the interchange of Rte. N and Highway 65 near the water treatment facility -
this is the turn off 65 highway to go to Grand Pass CA.   
 
Grand Pass has little shorebird habitat, but Pool 1 looks nice and contained
Pectoral, Least and Solitary Sandpipers; Killdeer and perhaps 50+ Great Blue
Herons.  The staff said shorebirds had just begun to arrive but they have
had little rain; and of course the pheasant did not show themselves for me,
even though they are "everywhere".
