      9/5

      Yesterday morning 9/5, Mike Rogers found a juvenile Buff-breasted
      Sandpiper in Alviso, Santa Clara County. It was seen by other birders up
      until 6:30pm.
      The bird was seen primarily in the SE corner of New Chicago Marsh and on
      the levee between this area of the marsh and salt pond A16.

      Directions:

      Go to the Don Edwards Environmental Education Center (EEC) in Alviso.
      Walk out to the salt ponds past the nature center-- walk all the down
      the levee (salt pond will be on your right) to the end. The bird was
      seen feeding on top of this levee as you reach the end -- RR track will
      be ahead of you, separated by a small channel; New Chicago Marsh is on
      your left. Look down in to the pickleweed, etc. It forages among the
      plants in the marsh or on top of or the sides of the levee.

      Good map of the area:

      [from maps, pick the maps by Dick Teater and then pick Sunnyvale]

      Good birding,
