This morning between 10 and 11, about 3 hours after low tide, the tidal slough along Marshlands Road at Don Edwards NWR was full of birds, including some 40 red-necked phalaropes and many rafts of eared grebes in breeding plumage.  Also in marvelous breeding plumage were about 100 dunlin feeding at the edges of the sand bars with sanderlings, western and least sandpipers, and avocets.
