- I was unable to locate Dave's Ibis this evening but did run across some other pretty good birds.
Some shorebird habitat has formed in the flooded rice fields on the west side of Nice-Lucerne Cutoff rd. This is about 1/2 mile south from the intersection with highway 20. Along with dowitchers, peeps, yellowlegs and a Spotted Sandpiper there were 2 Marbled Godwits, a Willet and a Wilson's Phalarope. Jerry

There is a Tundra Swan (Imm.) feeding just West of the Rodman Slough Island. The bird didn't seem to mind that I was only about 50 yards from it. Also, just east (20 yards)of the Rodman Slough Bridge there is a Phainopepla. This is the exact place I saw two of them earlier in the year on the North side of the road.
