[Tweeters] Eide Rd Variations

Hello all,
I was at Eide Rd this morning a couple hours before Carol's report and
ran into Blair Bernson and Jim Pasola. We found a pair of Wilson's
Phalaropes, a few Dunlin, Western Sandpipers, Greater Yellowlegs,
Semipalmated Plovers, Killdeer and Black-Bellied Plovers. After they
left I waited out a short rain shower and checked the fields again and
was able to add a Short-Billed Dowitcher to that list. We had good
numbers of Blue-Winged Teal in various areas, but on my final walk I
found 24 (almost all males) in one single pond. I also had a Virginia
Rail making lots of noise as it walked around in the open.

Sadly we did not find the Pectoral Sandpipers that Carol found shortly
after I left, nor did we find the Red Knot, Pacific Golden Plovers or
Bar-Tailed Godwit seen over the long weekend. Eide Rd is an odd place.
I was there last Thursday and the only shorebird I found was a single
Killdeer.
