S.M. sewage ponds

Jamie M Chavez <jcwings@...>


Every pond at the Santa Maria sewage plant continues to be completely
filled which doesn't help the shorebird situation but there are still
quite a few peeps around the perimeters. Two BAIRD'S SANDPIPERS were
present today at the noon hour. One in the sludge beds nearer to the
entrance and one along the shoreline of the new ponds at the west end.
Many juv. Least and Western sandpipers, a few Wilson's and Red-necked
Phalaropes, plus one remaining Black-necked Stilt. Savannah Sparrows are
beginning to come in there too. They aren't found there in summer.
