Greene County: Bridge Burners Boulevard and points nearby 

Alerted by David Kirschke's finds in Greene County yesterday, I stopped by 
Bridge Burners Boulevard this morning. Shortly afterward, I also checked out 
some nearby fields and ponds. 

I could not find the golden-plovers David reported yesterday, but many of the 
same species were present at the site and/or at one or more of the other spots 
I visited. Highlights include 

Gadwall (7, at 2 sites) 
American Wigeon (2, Bridge Burners Boulevard) 
Blue-winged Teal (3, Bridge Burners Boulevard) 
Northern Shoveler (6, at 2 sites) 
Green-winged Teal (15, at 2 sites) 
Ring-necked Duck (5, at 2 sites) 
Pectoral Sandpiper (13, Bridge Burners Boulevard) 
Horned Lark (singing, Baughard Hill Road) 
Tree Swallow (46, including some in Tusculum this evening) 
American Pipit (6, Bridge Burners Boulevard)
