Winfield Lock and Dam 25:

Don't even bother, the water is close to flood stage and there aren't any birds around.

There are still a lot of ducks around and the moist soil units at Leach (particularly Bittern Basin) and Cannon look really good but there just aren't any shorebirds in the area to take advantage of them.  I had a lazy 130+ species on Thursday combining a late morning at Cuivre and a short afternoon at Leach so there are definitely plenty of birds around.
