Visited several wetlands with reed canary grass, sedges, and cattails in 
Addison and Bridport last two mornings.  Bobolinks everywhere.  Northern 
Harrier family of four, at least two were juveniles.  A Lesser 
Yellowlegs landed right at my feet and hung out for about 15 minutes 
while I birded while trying not to startle it.  Lots of Tree Sparrows 
congregating.  Little habitat showing yet for shorebirds in these locations.
