FOR what it's worth.
Went out to Salt Lake
figured to get a good few days in B4 event
Doing a lot burning there - or fires maybe?
There are no shorebirds there.
in all of the hot spots around the area.
Did not find one warbler or vireo or etc.
SAW 3 bittern in the ONLY standing water area south of Cty Rd 12 on Cty Rd 11
Drove a good 75+ miles I figure.
Did not go to Big Stone -
But it is DRY and brittle there.
I did maintenance roads and all the lakes were high with NO shore or mud.
I have never seen it so poor - even on bad days in past.
Mainly Robins, Grackles, usual ducks! even Salt Lake was very limited.
Got a Horned Owl - 1 Great Blue Heron - Red Tails
Not even a Yellow Headed Blackbird.
So did not stay out there - Can't imagine it getting better in two days
Sorry for the bad news - just a heads up
but the eurasian collared dove is here in Young America again.
Other than that it is really slow in this area - ????
Good birding anyway ('v') tweet
Mike in Young America
