      A Wilson's Plover was at the Tijuana River mouth in San Diego County
      late this morning. When first found it was harassed by the nesting Snowy
      Plovers near the south end of the barrier dune (south of Seacoast Drive)
      and eventually moved down the beach to the river mouth and crossed to
      the south side. It was still easily seen with a scope around 14:00 from
      the north side of the river. Anybody wanting a closer look would have to
      hike out to Border Field SP from the end of Monument Road (if it stays
      on the south side of the river, it could always just move back to the
      north side).

      A female Common Goldeneye (not the imm. male that was present last week)
      was in the Oneonta channel north of the river mouth. The female
      Long-tailed Duck continued in the Oneonta channel in the morning but
      around 14:00 was seen swimming out of the river mouth and into the surf.
