I found all the normal wading birds and shorebirds on Bio Lab Rd today. Wading bird highlights were the normal herons and egrets, both ibises, and Roseate Spoonbills. We also had a fair share of Stilt Sandpipers, both Dowitchers, both Yellowlegs, Semipalmated Plovers, and Least, Western and Semipalmated Sandpipers.

with Larvae of Horse Fly (I think)

I also found a small flock of shorebirds with dowitchers, yellowlegs and an interesting shorebird. It’s a Wilson’s Phalarope! It in the rear with a very thin needle-like bill, white throat, white rump, and pale lores.
