two semi-unusual bird sightings Robb Field SD River tidal mudflats, Wedn 15 Aug
Today I was surprised to see, some time around or after 10:30 am, a Barn Swallow gathering nesting material (mud for its nest) on the mudflats today, Wednes Aug 15, so late in the nesting season. Was also surprised to see two lone Blue-winged Teal together on the mudflats, which appeared to be in eclipse plumage, and perhaps early migrants. The Common Terns were not to be seen today among the tern flock, which itself has diminished in size. A Red-necked Phalarope was seen in the river further upstream off Sea World Drive.
