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 today;

 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???
