Note: "High Counts" are the overall high-count for a species for the time period - at the ponds, at Hornsby Bend. Totals for each species should be pretty accurate, if not conservative, numbers because during Fall migration, while most species of shorebirds are not in as much of a hurry as in Spring, there is still high turnover.
