Erik Enbody and I went over to the Muskegon Wastewater System this morning 
(Friday).  We had close to 140 Baird's Sandpiper's in various plumages in the 
two drawn-down enclosures along the NW edge.  We also had 2 Red Knots in that 
area and great views of a Peregrine along the center dike.

Other birders saw these and reported an Eared Grebe as well.

Several more common species of shorebirds were available for study, as well 
as various male ducks in motley eclipse plumage.

We also stopped at the Coopersville ponds and stood on the dirt pile (the 
gate was closed).  No rarities, few water birds, but excellent views of young 

Take care  -  Doug McWhirter
