3 GRYE-sized birds, part of small flock (incl. dunlin) on the muddy edge of the grass, near the corner of the north & east sides, that a group of birders were watching around 1630 hrs; birds flew toward start of loop as I was driving toward birder group and were backlit by sun; at least 2 of the 3 were GRYE by calls. The birders said the shank was among them; I couldn't see verifiable plumage details due to the low sun. Wasn't seen by anyone else before dark.
