      Greetings Everyone,

      The lesser sand-plover was still present and easy to see this morning
      between 6:15-7:00 AM at Harriett Wieder Park in Huntington Beach. It
      moved around by up to roughly 200 yards, more or less parallel to the
      edge of the wetland. When I left just after 7 AM, it was over to the
      east, so at that time the best view would have been from the northwest
      edge of the lawn in the part of Harriett Wieder Park with the parking
      lot and playground (i.e., NOT from the dirt path with the tall weeds a
      short distance to the west).

      Also, if you use eBird to see where people have been reporting the bird,
      note that many of the markers people have used are in the main part of
      Bolsa Chica roughly a mile farther to the northwest than where the bird
      is regularly being seen.
