On 20 July we had 13 species of shorebirds at Owens Lake indicating that they think it is fall in spite of the heat and humidity! First of Fall species were: two adult Semipalmated Plovers at Dirty Socks and 28 adult Long-billed Dowitchers at Dirty Socks and Cottonwood Marsh. Small downy chicks of Snowy Plovers, Black-necked Stilts, and American Avocets were also seen.
