Columbia Bottom CA, St. L co.
Saw 11 B-N STILTS so would not be surprised with the 12 count.
Had 10 in this pool and one came across the road to join these.
Grassy area in the back of pool might hold more.
Females seemed to come back to lay in the same spots even if they were 
spooked repeatedly (noisy trucks, R-S Hawk, etc)
In the same pool (pool 8) as Stilts:
31 (+?) WHITE-RUMPED SANDPIPERS
3 DUNLIN
Saw the Semi-sands and pects too.
Same ETS on the same gate.
Also had 2 BELL'S VIREOS on the asphalt drive in the secondary scrubby brush 
toward the front of this drive.
New bird for CB?

Riverlands MBS, St. Charles co
Not much earlier....but at the end of the day before storm (most in Ellis 
Bay across from Heron Pond)
one adult LAUGHING GULL
3 RUDDY TURNSTONES
one possible Godwit - too late with too little light to ID 100%. IDed from 
jizz, feeding action, size compared to R-B gulls.
Had some peeps flying around just before the storm hit.
small sterna tern and Caspian terns
one YELLOW-BILLED CUCKOO vocalized from Maple Island on the way to the "MO 
side" of Dam.

Nitie-nite........zzzzz
