|3 American Avocets, a nice East Pond treat.|
|Wilson's Phalarope on the East Pond.|
|Western Sandpiper on the East Pond.|
The East Pond is a unique place for shorebirds but in case you forgot, the West Pond was too and is the spot where the legendary MEGA RARE Broad-billed Sandpiper showed up. It is just one of the many reasons to get behind the online petition that the Birders Coalition put together. We must get the WEST POND restored! The link is here. Please sign up if you have not already and don't forget to spread the word. Do it for the birds and wildlife we love!
