Sweetwater res. Silt Sandpiper.

David Povey

One of the two Stilt Sandpipers that Matt and Justyn found at Sweetwater Res. was still present today at 2 p.m. with a lone dowitcher.

Also saw 5 Lesser Yellowlegs among the shorebirds there. These birds were seen close in along the southern shore near the east end.

Heat distortion was bad at this time of day, for scoping the far side of the lake. Early morning should be better.

FYI the box with pay envelopes at the fishing access parking was locked up today.
