      We just watched the White-rumped Sandpiper pick up high and fly north away from the ponds lost in the distance. Not to say it can't come back (it got pretty lost getting here in the first place), but it does not augur well. I will post if it reappears before we leave.

        We have relocated the White-rumped Sandpiper (or a second one?) on the southern shore of the southern-most Ducks Unlimited pond in the Piute Ponds complex. It certainly does move around quite a bit.

          Hi all,

          The White-Rumped Sandpiper was still at Piute Ponds when we left at sunset.
          It was associating with a few Killdeer, and moved around alot, following
          the Killdeer when they flew. We first found it in the south Ducks Unlimited
          pond. When we left it, it was in the small wetland just south of the 'coot
          chute' inflow from the sewage ponds: this is about 100 meters west of
          division street, i.e. on the opposite side of division street as the main
          ponds. Division street is the north-south road along the power lines.

          Remember, permission is required for entry into Piute Ponds.

          Good birding,

          Frank Gilliland
