      Birders:

      An immature Blue-footed Booby continued at the east end of 76th Avenue,
      north end of the Salton Sea, from 7 am until at least 8 am Monday,
      August 14. About 300 yards north of the end of 76th, a cove narrows as
      it extends westward through the power line corridor. On the near side
      of this cove, right of the power lines, 100 or more American White
      Pelicans (and some browns) rested and preened on the beach, surrounding
      and nearly completely screening the booby from view.

      Later yesterday morning, the Piping Plover continued at Red Hill, at
      the location Bob Miller described well on August 7. A Snowy Plover
      tried, but failed, to usurp its territory, but in the process provided
      wonderful nose-to-nose comparisons.
