Noah, thanks for the tip...I looked for the birds you saw this morning at lunch and missed quite a few species: Osprey, Avocet, Night-heron, Grackle. I did, however, sit down on the eastern-most birm overlooking the largest pond and scoped out a female Red-necked Phalarope in breeding plumage from the big (100+) flock of Wilson's. Also, there were 3 Western Kingbirds, 1 Myrtle Warbler, and a Bullock's Oriole in the southern-most Cottonwoods (inside the fence). If anyone wants to get good looks at Bonaparte's Gulls, this is the place. Of the 20 or so Bonaparte's scattered around, 2 appeared to be in adult plumage..
