    Hhhmm...I gather no one saw the Smew yesterday (Wednesday). If anyone does see the Smew today, or saw it yesterday, your input on Calbirders would be most

      If anyone does see the Smew today, or saw it yesterday, your input on
      Calbirders would be most appreciated. I am sure I am not the only birder
      who is putting their weekend plans on hold in case of the bird is still
      around
