I drove out to Nygren Wetlands overlook this evening about 6:45 p.m. The water level has dropped considerably just from Saturday. A lot of dead grasses and some mud flats are now exposed, and shorebirds are moving in. The fluddles on Meridian Road and at the east end of Moody Road are pretty much dried up. I saw a flock of 20 Lesser Yellowlegs and Solitary Sandpipers fly in. A pair of Sandhill Cranes (without a colt) flew in.

There is only a very small puddle visible from the east end of Moody Road (scope is required). Other than both species of yellowlegs, Pectoral, Solitary and Least Sandpipers, I saw 1 Semipalmated Plover and 2 Stilt Sandpipers.
