      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 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
