Shawn Billerman and I saw the Curlew Sandpiper this morning, as well as a
Nelson's Sharp-tailed Sparrow in the tall (but fairly isolated) vegetation
below Adelaide St. There were also 3 Black-bellied Plover and 1 Greater
Yellowlegs at the site, as well as a nice morning passerine flight including
many cowbirds, Yellow-rumped and Palm Warblers, and Pine Siskin.
1 Eared Grebe was in the NW corner of the Batavia WWTP on our way back to
