This morning September 16th on the east shore of Crowley Lake near the delta on the dry flats near the water. Two birds, short dark bills, lighter legs, buffy in the head and upper breast, conspicuously white below, black in tail. Chubby little critters. Watched feeding on the flats, flying, and hanging out for over an hour. They got within 50 feet of us. Lots of other birds.
