The previously reported flooded field on Hwy 56, just South of Hwy 19 and
the Stanton Airfield in Goodhue County was full of shorebirds and ducks
early this afternoon.  Along with hundreds of Pectoral, Semipalmated,
Least, Baird's and Stilt Sandpipers were one Red-necked Phalarope and one
Buff-breasted Sandpiper.  Also present were two Wilson's Snipe, numerous
Killdeer, Mallards, Shovelers, and Blue and Green-winged Teal.  A juvenile
Cooper's Hawk harassed the shorebirds but did not drive them away.
