April 8, 2012 After enjoying watching the Brown Pelican feast on fish for about 45 minutes and then settle in for a nap on his resting post, I decided to check out some of the shorebird spots in Washington county.  Thanks go out to Terry for forwarding the info from the fishing web page and for sharing some of his photo's.  Also for anyone interested, from talking with someone who has a boat in the area.  They first saw the bird, last Thursday by there boat house.  But where pretty casual birders, so did not know how unusual of a sighting it was in Minnesota.  So with some luck it will stick around for a while.   In Washington county, there were 13 Greater Yellowlegs in the small flooded pond, that Larry posted about on the 3rd.  There were also 7 Great Egrets, there as well. I also checked a number of other potential locations for shorebirds in Washington county, with limited success.  I found a few Killdeers and at the small wetland along Hudson Drive South, just East of Cotton Grove Road, I found a small flock of Rusty Blackbirds. Craig Mandel, Minnetonka, Hennepin County, MN

> For shorebird challenged So Wash Co.  There were 6 greater yellowlegs in a wetland that is now drying out so it has some good mud. This was the same wetland that had a small flock of white-fronted geese in March.
> The wetland is in Woodbury  on Pioneer Drive just north of Baily Rd  on the west side of Pioneer Dr. It is just across the street from Stonybrook Drive.
