A few shorebirds at Arcadia
I stopped briefly at Arcadia marsh before work this morning to see what might be around. A Black-crowned Night Heron was reported there a few days ago but it was not there this morning. I did have a few migrant shorebirds along the mud flats in the area near the lookout tower. There were three Least Sandpipers and a Lesser Yellowlegs as well as two Killdeer. It appears the shorebird migration has begun. The Lesser Yellowlegs makes county bird #188 for the year so far.
