  20. Number observed: 2
  21. Short-billed/Long-billed Dowitcher

    Number observed: 4

    Details: Flagged as rare. Plump sandpipers with extremely long, straight bills. I think they were LBDO based on time of year and "hump-backed" appearance, but I never got close enough to confirm.

  40. Number observed: 1
  41. Number observed: 5
  42. Number observed: 2

    Details: 1 migrant, 1 local. The local bird (an immature) flew past carrying a BBPL which managed to escape. The falcon chased the plover over the rim of Cell 6 and I didn't see if it re-captured it or not.

  43. Number observed: 13

    Details: Including 4 on the north spillway alone.

  47. Number observed: 19
  48. Number observed: 1

    Details: Flagged as late. Tiny blue-gray passerine; long black tail edged in white; erratic foraging behavior.

  60. Number observed: 39
  61. Number observed: 1

    Details: Flagged as rare, but possibly annual and just undetected at this location. I first saw a sparrow with a bright orange face scurry into the marsh grasses. I walked into the marsh and relocated it clinging to two stalks. It had a bright orange face and breast, and the orange breast was cleanly demarcated from the white belly. The orange was the same intensity on the face and breast. The bill was short. All of these field marks point to NESP over SALS, and possibly to the Interior race over the Atlantic Coast race.

  66. sparrow sp.

    Number observed: 45

    Details: Many birds flushed from the roadside and disappeared before I could ID. I'd imagine most were SOSP and SAVS.
