Doug Willis and I arrived at Four Rivers CA and promptly found the immature Wood Stork at 7:00 a.m. today.  It again required walking along the (stinky-with-dead-fish) drainage channel to the river and looking left.  Thank you David Rogles for making available those directions.

Many hundreds of shorebirds were present in great habitat in Units 1, 3, and 4.  Those seen:
Semipalmated Plover
Killdeer
Spotted Sandpiper
Solitary Sandpiper
Greater Yellowlegs
Lesser Yellowlegs
Semipalmated Sandpiper
Least Sandpiper
Baird's Sandpiper
Pectoral Sandpiper
Stilt Sandpiper
Buff-breasted Sandpiper
Short-billed Dowitcher
Wilson's Snipe
Wilson's Phalarope
Upland Sandpiper
Sanderling
(I think I'm missing one - I believe we may have had 18 species, but you get the idea...)

A Mississippi Kite along Ezekial Rd.; Willow Flycatcher also heard.
