I was able to find at least 10 of the Buff-breasted Sandpipers around 6pm tonight along with several other species of shorebirds.  A very strong northwest wind made the viewing quite difficult.  The Buff-breasted Sandpipers were on the northern end of the berm between the two ponds.  There was a small "island" and a nice mudflat at the north end of the east (closer) pond that provided good viewing of the other species.
 
I also found 2 additional Buff-breasted Sandpipers in the NE part of the county - 1.1 miles east of Hwy 23 on CR8 (171st St) just east of Holland.  They were with several Killdeer in a recently mowed & windrowed field on the south side of the road.

John Hockema and I found 15 Buff-breasted Sandpipers at the sewage ponds in
Edgerton this morning.
 
For those of you interested in making a Muffin Run there is a good bakery
in town as well.
