I had 3 Black Terns skimming the water looking like giant swallows among
dozens of Cliff Swallows at Soda Lake this afternoon. There were also dozens
of Red-necked Phalaropes, one Wilson's Phalarope and 5 Bonaparte's Gulls on
the water. Along the south west shoreline there were 2 Dunlin, a Spotted
Sandpiper, a Least Sandpiper and 3 avocets. There was a single Clark's Grebe
at Little Soda Lake.
