This afternoon I made a brief stop at the wetland on Fairbairn Street, north of County Road 19. I was able to see and hear a pair of Common Gallinule (formerly known as Common Moorhen) and Pied-billed Grebe. A Virginia Rail also called. Apparently, a pair of Northern Shovelers was also seen in this wetland in recent days. However, I did not see them today. Later, in the flooded field at the NW corner of County Road 19 and the Chemong Highway, I found a single Greater Yellowlegs.
