As of 6:30 pm Monday, April 21 the Whimbrel was still at the pond east of Green Gate Cottonwoods. We scanned the pond from a distance and saw nothing. Then we approached the water and the Whimbrel flew up from behind some bushes and tall grass. It seems to prefer the southeast quadrant of the pond for feeding. The Solitary Sandpiper was in the "C"-Drain ditch in Green Gate Cots.
