[birdky] (RPT) Ballard Shorebirds Today

Began at dawn at Swan Lake and finished up at Mitchell.  Habitat at Swan is 
still decent but will last only a couple more weeks.  Mitchell Lake is a few 
inches higher due to heavy rain and the sandbar is underwater.  However, Lower 
Beaver Dam Slough is very good today as the water has just been drained down.  
All the shorebirds seen at BWMA were seen at Lower Beaver Dam.  Hopefully,  the 
habitat on Mitchell will improve before Lower Beaver Dam is dry.  Highlights 
include:
