Doug Kieser's shorebird area is located 1.5 miles north of the intersection
of CR 12 and CR 13.  This is the northwest corner of CR 13 and 220 St.
Present today were Killdeer, Lesser Yellowlegs, Pectoral Sandpipers, Stilt
Sandpipers, Least Sandpipers, Semi-palmated Sandpipers, Greater Yellowlegs,
Wilson's Phalarope, Solitary Sandpiper and Spotted Sandpiper.

Another place to look for the Cattle Egrets (or other egrets for that
matter) is north-west of CR 12 & CR 13 intersection. Follow CR 12 west from
this intersection about one mile to 447th Ave. Turn north here and scan the
flooded area to your left as you pass over High Island Creek. I counted 85
Great Egrets here, plus many White Pelicans and the area "looks right" for a
Cattle Egret.

I spent 9:30am-11:00am waiting for the Common Moorhen to appear at Sand
Lake. It never showed itself. If you are going to attempt this, bring plenty
of sunscreen and patience !!
