Hey Everybirdy,

  Time enough to take a ride on Peacock's Pocket after picking up Giacomo.
The rain wet down some of the mud in the impoundments.  Black-bellied
Plovers and Semipalmated plovers in decent numbers here and there.  Found a
handful of Stilt Sandpipers, many Least as well.  Short-billed Dowitchers
numbers are building, even a late(?) western Willet still lingering around.
Near the area where last year's ruff was, there were a number of Least Terns
and a few Caspian Terns.
  dunlin are still the predominant shorebird.  PLenty of Black-neckled
Stilts, even found one that appears to already be sitting on a nest.
Reddish and Snowy Egrets, Great Blue, Little Blue and Tricolored Herons, of
course, one lone Spoonbill.

  Giacomo and I were treated ot an uncommon sight of a Diamondback Terrapin
up on the dike road certainly worhty of an honorable mention.

  Well that's the quick and dirty.....

  See you out there!
