I can drive and bird from my car, it is that I cannot walk more than a 
shaky step or two while learning to walk again. I looked for shorebirds 
and a grackle at Baskett Slough this morning. Of shorebirds there were 
15-20 LB Dowitchers, a few Greater Yellowlegs, and maybe a Lesser I did not 
really look getting sidetracked by 4 juvenile WILSON'S PHALAROPES. No such 
thing as any grackle, except for Brewer's Blackbirds er 'Lesser Grackles', 
thanks Bill Thackaberry via Jeff Harding. 
Over at Ankeny NWR Pintail Marsh there were 15-20 Dowitchers and a few 
Greater Yellowlegs and 2 Least Sandpipers, and that is where Jeff told me 
about lesser grackles. Fall shorebird season is starting and it will 
continue for months...
