At the south and east side of Heron pond, both yellowlegs (many), pectorals
sandpipers (many), spotted and solitary sandpipers (several), one dunlin, a
few dowitchers (long-billed?), two semipalmated plovers, one snipe. The
pond that had the godwits and avocets last Saturday had just a few
pectorals today. The field east of Heron pond had a singing marsh wren and
a few common sparrows. A Virginia rail was In the pintail marsh channel
which crosses Wise Rd. Also in pintail were many hooded mergs, some ruddy
ducks, and several red-breasted mergs. A sora made a brief appearance. More
singing marsh wrens were near the south end of pintail marsh.
