At 4:30pm this afternoon there were still (16) Golden Plovers in the
field just southwest of Rockwood Landfill on US Turnpike. Among them
were several Kildeer and (1) Horned Lark.
I also checked out the ponds at US Turnpike and Roberts Road for
shorebirds. The following yellow-legged shorebirds were observed:
(6) Pectoral Sandpipers
(6-9) Lesser Yellowlegs
(4-5) Greater Yellowlegs
(several) Lesser Yellowlegs
(no) dark-legged peeps....
I spoke w/ Norm Folsom, Site Manager at the Rockwood Landfill, and he
was gracious enough to
permit me to wander about the ponds to look at the birds. He welcomes
birders but asks that
we contact him prior to entering anywhere on Landfill property. His
office number is 734-379-0774.
He's also genuinely interested in knowing whether the ponds are
generating good birds since its good PR for them if they can create
productive habitat for local/passing fauna....Please be courteous.
I was able to get some better pics tonight. I apologize if I'm
inundating y'all w/ annoying bird pics,
but I have a bad case of digiscoping-itis.... I am seeking counceling.
