Re: Dry Lakes - A pair of American Golden Plovers ?
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
I went and looked this afternoon and got good looks of the same 2 plovers in flight. They are Black-bellied based on having light rumps and dark axillary coverts/wingpits.
There were also Dunlin, Dowitchers, and Stilt, Least, and Semipalmated Sandpipers still present. The Dunlin count was up to 8 but there was only one Stilt Sandpiper today and drastically fewer gulls and Least Sandpipers.

They are so handsome. What beautiful photos, Ceredig.
Thank you for the directions. I am coming from Reno but spending the night in downtown Nampa.

Where are you coming from? The Dry Lakes playa is located adjacent to Stagecoach Road. I typically get there by heading out of Nampa on 12th St/Highway 45, turn right onto Bowmont, left on Dry Lakes Road (Bowmont t’s into Dry Lakes) and then Dry Lakes makes a 90 degree turn and becomes Stagecoach. You could also turn right on Missouri or Bennett and the left onto Dry Lakes.
We are going to be in the area tomorrow and would like to see what everyone is talking about. The link shows south east of CJ in the middle of a cultivated field. Can anyone give me better directions to the Dry Lakes?
