"Vanport Wetlands, Portland, Oregon ... August 25 and 29, 2016"
The Trips:    Both nice summer days, with the first visit being in the mid 90s and the second in the high 80s ... went out late mornings to look for the Stilt Sandpiper which had been spotted the day before ... SUCCESS on the 25th altho no pictures possible through the reeds ... lots of ducks and shorebirds there on the first visit (e.g., high count via ebird was 66 Lesser Yellowlegs and LOTS of LB Dowitchers) but not many there on the second visit (via OBOL, a Peregine had shown up).
