If you've never been to Farmer's Ponds in Bishop, right now is a great time. See for directions. When approaching the pond, please observe from a distance and walk up slowly. The birds are pretty nervous and packed into a very small (drying) pond.

Highlights first Spotted Sandpiper for the year, with spots and everything!, 5 Lesser Yellowlegs joined by 25 Greater Yellowlegs, 10 Dowitcher sp., 20 Black-necked Stilts, and 100 peeps, 25+ were id'ed as Western Sandpiper. Also, 100's of swallows.
