Santa Maria birds

Nick Lethaby
 

All:

At the sewage ponds, there were 4 Avocets and a Baird's Sandpiper but only 13 Greater and a single Lesser Yellowlegs. 6 Wilson's Phalaropes remain. The SE pond is looking pretty good and will hopefully drop a bit more.

The pastures were birdless but there are now some cows back in there to hopefully chomp the vegetation a bit lower.

The river mouth had 9 Avocets, and 24 LB and 16 SB Dowitchers. I may have been wrong on 2-3 of these but was not able to stay long enough to double check them.
