The Buff-breasted Sandpipers were still at Columbia Bottoms this morning. Four of them were working along the edge of a fluddle. The fluddle can be seen from the parking lot and is about a 100 yards southwest. Anyone who wants to see them has to walk out in a cleared field toward the fluddle. There were many Killdeer along the edge, along with Pectoral and Spotted Sandpipers. Great Egrets were out in the water.
A Black-throated Night Heron was hunting in the slough. Many Dickcissels, Common Yellowthroats, Indigo Buntings were in the fields.A Blue-Grosbeak was in the field on the right along the gravel road, just past the maintenance shed.
