[TN-Bird] Upland and Wilson's Phalarope- Ensley Bottoms

April 23, 2009
Ensley Bottoms
Shelby Co. TN
 
A quick run through at the "Pits" found fewer shorebird numbers but 16  
species. Two Uplands were flushed from the roadside and a female Wilson's  
Phalarope was spinning in one puddle. Lots of construction causing quite a bit  
of fragmented habitat and the large pits have not bloomed yet. 
 
Present were: Killdeer, 3 Semipalmated Plovers, Black-necked Stilts,  
Spotted Sandpipers, numerous Solitary Sandpipers, Greater and Lesser 
Yellowlegs,  
2 UPLAND SANDPIPERS, Least Sandpipers, Pectoral Sandpipers, 3 Dunlin, Stilt 
 Sandpipers in various stages of molt, 1 Short-billed Dowitcher, only 3  
Long-billed, Wilson's Snipe, 1 female WILSON'S PHALAROPE.  
Good Birding  !!!
