10/4, Trap Falls Reservoir, Shelton (7:15-7:30a)-
(2) Double-crested Cormorants
(45) Canada Geese
(2) Killdeer
(1) Lincon's Sparrow (singing!)
Even with yesterday's rain, the reservoir is very low.  There are a lot of exposed mudflats making it a nice little shorebird habitat.  Only Killdeer there in the wet morning fog, but it may warrent a peak.
The singing Lincoln's sparrow was in the thickets along the road/fence, at the far right end (looking at the reservoir) of the water.  He responded to pishing, then perched low in a bush for two verses.
