Excellent Shorebirding, 08/15/23

This evening after work, I went to the Black Dirt Region to follow up on several reports of a good variety of shorebirds. I expected today to be good (it might have been good timing for a personal day), after the storms that came through the area last night. I joined Diane Bliss and Kyle Knapp and I thoroughly enjoyed a pleasant evening with some fabulous birds:

  • Black-bellied Plover (1)
  • Semipalmated Plover (3)
  • Killdeer (35+)
  • Least Sandpiper (16)
  • Pectoral Sandpiper (7)
  • Semipalmated Sandpiper (5)
  • Short-billed Dowitcher (4)
