Discovering Salem Ave earlier this year has certainly paid off.  There were 2 Buff-breasted Sandpiper at a small sod farm on the west side of Salem Ave(apparently the farm has been around for over 50 years).   For those that remember the Cinnamon Teal location, this is a little to the north of that.    There were a total of around 50 non-Killdeer shorebirds at this location.  I was able to identify about 15 of the 50 as most were at the extreme opposite end.   I saw Lesser Yellowlegs, Semipalmated, White-rumped, and Stilt Sandpiper.   I talked to a farmer from that area, as there was work being done on the sod farm while I was there, and he said that areas along the road have had more flooding problems in the last 5-10 years.  Also along Salem Ave were around 100 Blue-winged Teal, a large flock of Red-winged Blackbird(first flock of fall), and an Orchard Oriole.   At Carver Park there were 4 Tennessee Warbler, 2 Nashville Warbler, and a Blue-winged Warbler.
