The WEKI was on a lone willow tree across from the senior center at the park & another was seen at the sewer ponds which were hopp'in with shorebirds, mostly dows (Long-billed we think)& Least Sandpipers (50) and Snowy & Great Egrets. We heard a Sora. But the best bird which, I rarely see, was the American Bittern that flushed from the east side of the most westerly pond, that runs north-south, with the bird flying to the far side of that same pond "melting" into the cattails. We missed a possible Long-billed Curlew which flew over our heads. The Lesser Yellowlegs is still present. Great day out there.
