Thanks for the directions. At around 2 pm I found juv. Greater Yellowlegs, 
Wilson's Snipe, Nelson's Sparrow, American Pipet, & Rusty Blackbirds. It was 
great to be out in the fall colors and birding again!

I received a number of requests for better directions to the location.
From the parking lot walk straight down the trail until you reach the 
Hogback Ridge sign. Turn left (North) and walk along the East side of the 
dried up pond. Before you reach the bridge going over the stream you will 
take a right (East) on a small trail into the woods. I scuffed the dirt 
where the path starts.   This is about 10 yards past a railroad plank 
sitting on the edge of the main path. Follow trail East towards cattails but 
turn left (North) just past some fallen trees. Walk to the stream and filled 
in Beaver pond and look for the bird East over the Beaver damn. It might 
forage out of sight around some of the cattails. Also present were a 
Pectoral and Least Sandpipers and many Snipe.
I also found at least 4 Nelson's Sparrow in the vegetation by the stream and 
one American Pipit on the dried mud.
