Shorebirds at Lake Oktibbeha, Mississippi in the Fall of 1980

Published in 1982

I visited Lake Oktibbeha, Oktibbeha County, Mississippi, nineteen times from 22 August-7 November 1980 and recorded 20 species. Visits were usually spaced 3-4 days apart, in accord with International Shorebird Survey guidelines and constraints on my time. Counts were exact; “peep” numbers were rounded off on several dates because of their feeding movements. Birds were aged/sexed where possible or convenient.
