Buff-breasted Sandpiper and Chestnut-collared Longspurs, and more at Robb Field

The Buff-breasted Sandpiper and the 2 Chestnut-collared Longspurs
continued in the grassy area behind the tennis courts this afternoon
from at least 1:40 pm (and others had it earlier before I got there)
thru about 3:10 pm. The Sandpiper sticks with the Killdeer, and the
Longspurs were usually with at least a few Horned Larks.There were also
a couple of Long-billed Curlews and Black-bellied Plovers in that area.
Once the sports folks started setting up for late afternoon play the
birds all left. The Killdeer and Sandpiper headed towards the river
channel.

There was a Reddish Egret in the river channel, but we did not see the
Tri-colored Heron.

The Christensens, Dan Jehl and a few others helped those who were around
and refound the Grasshopper Sparrow in the ball field Paul mentioned
earlier. That was probably around 3:30-4:00 pm. It was hanging out by
the fence closest to the river channel, often foraging under the bottom
fence rail, so a bit hard to spot at times.
