      Hi All,
      Recommendations for finding the Greenshank---
      It is very reliably seen about 11:00 am from the bluff at the end of School
      Road. School Road is about 5 miles north of Arcata.

      HIGHWAY CONDITIONS
      Highway 299 is now open through the fire area west of Weaverville. Highway
      20 is open but expect the usual very slow vacation traffic near Clear Lake.
      Caltrans road work has been suspended for the weekend.

      The young male Ruff was found by Stan Harris at the mouth of Butcher
      Slough beside Klopp Lake. To get here enter the Arcata Marsh Project.
      Take the Samoa Blvd (Hwy 255) off Hwy 101 in Arcata 4 or 5 blocks west to
      "I" Street. Turn left (south) on "I" Street and go to the parking lot at
      the end next to the Bay. Klopp Lake is the brackish pond on your left at
      the parking lot. Walk along the trail on the dike between Klopp Lake and
      the bay to the east. At the point where the trail turns north (left) you
      are next to Butcher Slough. Scan the birds with your scope.

      The trails in the Fairhaven willow patches on Samoa Peninsula are
      mostly clear. This area is a good fall migration vagrant trap.
      Black-capped chickadees are also found daily here.
