The Cinnamon Teal was still in the drainage ditch along Salem Ave this
afternoon at 5:00. There are quite a few flooded fields in the area,
with a few ducks and a lot of shorebirds. Solitary Sandpiper and Snipe
were in the flooded corn field near where the teal was hanging out.
Further south on Salem Ave, a field on the east side of the road, just
north of County Road 50, had at least 80 Greater Yellowlegs, 30 Lesser
Yellowlegs, and 60 Pectoral Sandpipers. Another flooded area, on the
south side of CR 50 just west of CR 41, had 40+ Pectoral Sandpipers.
Both of these spots looked very promising for other shorebird species,
but I was in a hurry and didn't have much time to scrutinize them.
