Granger Cornfield Dowitchers plus Avociets
- Checked out the corn field near the Granger Cow Pond from 5:30-6:00 this eve. Six dowitchers were present upon arrival. They were very flighty. I got good looks at four of the six prior to flight and all were long-billed. Then all six flew and called. All were long-billed by call in flight. Quite a few other shorebirds present in this small patch:
When the avocets and dowitchers flew they flew to the east into the cornfield and did not return during my observation period. The Solitary came from out of the corn field. So, there may be other shorebirds in there.
