- Thursday, August 18, 2005. A bit of advice for any who might come to see the Stilt Sandpiper this weekend (since it seems to be sticking around). Arrive at MacKerricher Park's Laguna Point parking lot as early as possible. 7:00 or 8:00 is a good time. The bird is easy to find and view in the small stream that runs from the west side of the haul road to the beach BEFORE the kids and dogs start wading through. If you arrive after the visitors hit the beach, the bird may be difficult (impossible) to find. Good birding!
