Re: USTP 8/2

Austin Booth, my Aunt and Uncle and I visited the USTP this afternoon, where we met Vishnu. We also saw the WILSON'S PHALEROPES in the central pond, but no Dowitchers. On the northern pond Austin spotted a SEMIPALMATED PLOVER. On the berm between the Duck Pond and the central pond were a baker's dozen CANADA GEESE, and at the east end of the Central Pond were numbers of juvenile TREE and VIOLET-GREEN SWALLOWS, a BLUE-WINGED TEAL and a GREEN HERON. Swimming in the Duck Pond was a DOUBLE-CRESTED CORMORANT, while Chuck's juvenile CALIFORNIA GULL flew around scaring the Blackbirds. in the northern pond was a variety of peeps, including both juvenile and adult WESTERN SANDPIPERS and some LEAST SANDPIPERS.
