Re: [CALBIRDS] Re: PIUTE PONDS WHITE-RUMPED SANDPIPERSt
- Richard et al,
Here is my concern: the last i.e. the first White-rumped Sandpiper in
LA County was seen one day, then re-found the next morning, then never
seen again. What I'm worried about is that I will play it safe and
stay home Thursday morning "because it's gone" then wind up like I did
the last time: gnashing my teeth when someone reports it tomorrow
