This morning at 9, I saw the continuing BUFF-BREASTED SANDPIPER and the
STILT SANDPIPER at Struve Slough in Watsonville, Santa Cruz Co. I
followed the directions posted to Harkins Slough Rd. I saw others on
the other side of the slough and don't think they could see the birds
from where they were standing. There are wide bands of vegetation that
block views, especially of the Buff-breasted. It stayed fairly close to
the edge of the vegetation. I suggest that if you first don't see the
birds, try both sides of the slough.
