I went out to the Thompson River Wetland late morning just as the morning 
showers were ending. I hoped the rain might have brought some shorebirds in 
again. I was not disappointed!  I gave Terry McNeely a call and he came down and 
Myrna Carlton came out from town so they got to see them also. Shorebirds seen 

 Marbled Godwit - 2 
Hudsonian Godwit - 1 
Willet - 4 
Short-billed Dowitcher - 15 -20 
Pectoral Sandpiper - a few  
Least Sandpiper - several
Lesser and Greater Yellowlegs
Killdeer - a bunch 
I also saw a Spotted Sandpiper when I walked into another area where Terry had 
seen some Friday. 

I don't now if these shorebirds are some of the same ones seen last Monday, but 
not seen since, or all new ones???
