Re: [BirdYak] 20 minute birding trip
- Mike, thanks for the post. I went by the ponds tonight and
saw the Cinnamon Teal and perhaps three Spotted Sandpipers.
As I sat and watched the Spotted Sandpipers fly back and forth
a single Least Sandpiper walked slowly along the mud towards
me. It came so close that I could no longer use my bins to
watch it. A teeny peep with bright yellow legs. This Least and
others Richard and I saw today are very "drab" as compared to
individuals we saw a few weeks ago at Grandview.
Keep the posts coming. I had not seen a Spotted yet this year.
