On Saturday, the pits produced 7 White-rumped Sandpipers and 2 late  running  
Semipalmated Sandpipers. On Sunday the Semi's had cleared out but  there were 
19 White-rumped Sandpipers. You can expect small pulses of  White-rumped for 
a little while yet.
The nest of a pair of Black-necked Stilts, that I had expected  to hatch 
young this week did not disappoint, as mom had 2 feeding along the  edge of one 
pool. I never saw more than the two kids and they did not look more  than a day 
or so old. There may have been more as dad was staying close to  the bank at 
another location and was pretty agitated. There are stilt nest  strewn all over 
the place and there should be youngsters everywhere shortly.  I watched as a 
jilted female interrupted another pair, smack dab in  the middle of their 
romance dance. Evidently humans don't have a lock on  jealousy.
The Killdeer in just one pit numbered 168 and were joined by 2 Horned  Larks 
and a ton of pseudo shorebirds, Starlings.
Good Birding  !!!
