Tomato Birds and Great Egrets

I was down near Lake St. Clair today for work, which is a fantastic birding area, but I unfortunately only had a little bit of time before and after the surveys to check some of the nearby spots.  One location that proved to be quite productive were the fields off of Comber Sideroad near the tomato factory.  Here I found a mix of shorebirds in the flooded fields including American Golden Plover, Black-bellied Plover, Pectoral Sandpiper and Killdeer.  A bit of an odd scene to see some of them foraging among the tomatoes!

I counted 27 Great Egret at this sewage lagoon!
