Around 9 AM Bev Schroeder and I saw this bird which flushed immediately out of the middle, dry and south pond flying west over of the sewer pond buildings and going down out of sight. Could be in a field out there, we tried to relocate, no luck.We also had 3 dunlins, 1 greater yellowlegs and a long-billed dow (this was in the north airport road pond). The two vermilion flycatchers seen yesterday were still present and we had great views through the spotting scope.One was south over the fence near the orange tarps across the ditch & the other was in the corner of the south east pond.
