On 15 Aug at Tinemaha Reservoir on the east side, we had 3 species of gulls (Boneparte's, Ring-billed, CA); 3 species of terns (Caspian, Forster's, Black) with the Blacks down from 134 two days ago to 40 today; and 12 species of shorebirds including 21 Semipalmated Plovers and 1 Baird's Sandpiper our First of Fall. We also heard a Least Bittern in the tules giving its cuckoo-like vocalization and there were no cuckoos calling at Sanger Slough while we were there.
