Here is what I got today:



RMBS- 



Dunlin - 6

Semipalmated Sandpiper ~ 60 

Semipalmated Plover - 6

Least Sandpiper - several 

White-rumped Sandpiper ~ 10 

Least Tern - 4 

Black Tern ~ 25 

Common Tern - 2 



but couldn't find the birds John Solodar saw yesterday. They must have 
left. It rained quite a bit today. 



Columbia Bottom 



Red-eyed Vireo - 2 near the confluence point 

also Cedar Waxwing - 25-30 

Bank Swallow ~ 40 - I think they were nesting in the river bank. 



It rained most of the time I was there. 



Big Muddy NWR - Cora Island 



I walked down the path in the field and found: 

Indigo Bunting 

Eastern Kingbird - 2 

Dickcissel - 1 

Cedar Waxwing ~ 20 

Song Sparrow - 1 

Orchard Oriole - 2 male and 2 female  



I had a total of 40 species for the trip. I'd have seen more if it didn't rain 
today. 



Good birding, 

Jim Hickner
