I stopped at the Hills sewage lagoons today, 4/6 and was delighted to find the pond back from Cty Rd 6 mostly a mud bath.? There were several shorebird species:? Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs, Baird's Sandpipers, Pectoral Sandpipers, Least Sandpipers, and Killdeer.? They all provided side by side comparisons.? The Baird's clearly showed the primary extensions beyond the tail.? The Least Sandpipers showed their yellow legs and small size.? There were also many ducks and 4 Snow Geese present.

A Ross's Goose was associating with 10 Snow Geese at the gravel pit ponds just south of Blue Mounds State Park.
