DCWMA at dawn today showed a nice (several hundred) mixed flock of
waterfowl (blue-winged teal, green-winged teal, mallard), a few
Black-crowned Night-herons, and the usual Ring-billed gulls and Great
blue herons. However, of the shorebirds, only a few yellowlegs
remained from the several hundred birds enjoyed over the past several
weeks. Whether the fronts moving through or the higher water levels,
most of those shorebirds have flown.
At Charlotte Town Beach, most of the shorebirds observed over the past
week have likewise flown with only a few killdeer left. However, one
compensation was a lone Sabine's gull winging it south over the lake.
