- Sep 1, 2001Greetings Mendobirders: Early this afternoon George Chaniot, Matthew
Matthiesson, and I found a juvenile Buff-breasted Sandpiper on Ten Mile
Beach at the northern end of McKerricher SP north of Fort Bragg. The bird
was seen about 0.5 miles south of the main access to the beach from where
the old Haul Road runs parallel to Ten Mile River. It was feeding on
amphipods along the kelp rack which had washed up on the beach. It was
very approachable and still there when we left.
Of local interest were 2 Long-billed Curlews, also along Ten Mile beach,
and 12 Elegant Terns seen feeding near-shore off Laguna Point.
