Sorry for this being a little late.
Seen this morning at Columbia Bottom from gravel road at
back where ducks congregate (pools three, four on north side of road, pool two
on south): About 25 Lesser Yellowlegs, nine American Golden Plovers, about a
dozen Pectorals, one Snipe. Blue-wing Teal, about eight Redheads,
Northern Shovelers among the coots in pools four and five. Several hundred
Green-wing Teal in Pool two, one Pintail. An adult Bald Eagle swooped in
and picked off a coot in pool two. One Coopers Hawk flyover.
Connie Alwood found an American Bittern at pool 5. It
jumped out of the marsh and flew a short ways before dropping into the
Unsure how long mud flats will remain, MDC began pumping
water into pool three.
