>What a cooperative bird. I arrived shortly after Jim Lomax and Kathy
>Robertson, at 2:25PM , Friday,on the East side of the river near the Home
>Depot Parking lot. The Wagtail showed up mysteriously under the bridge on
>the sand bar west of the center at 2:40 Pm. We chased and then stood and
>watch the bird for the next 2 hours. It flew from the bridge to a sand bar in the
>center of the river about 300 yards south of the bridge (near a potatoe chip
>bag and water bottle north of a small grassy island.) It flew back to the
>Alondra bridge sand bar and then south again to the west bank. Then it flew
>back again to the sand bar 300 yds south of the Alondra bridge(potatoe chip
>bag and water bottle), all that activity was within the first 30 minutes. In flight,
>we got good looks at the apparent all white pimaries.
> The next hour and a half it ate, preened, and rested and ducked from a
>Paragrine fly over, walking and waging its tail of and on. What a great look. It
>was overcast all of the time I was able to stay. Possibly contributing to it
>staying visible for so long. I had to leave and left Jim and Kathy and two other
>birders watching it at 4:50Pm. The bird was quite cooperative. I hope others
>have as much time with it as we did.
