Golden Plovers at Virgin Creek Beach
- Wed, 29 Aug 2001 -- This afternoon Dorothy Tobkin saw two golden plovers at
Virgin Creek Beach. One was an AMERICAN GOLDEN-PLOVER and was among the
Black-bellied Plovers that usually loaf on the beach near the creek mouth.
This bird may have moved on. The other was a PACIFIC GOLDEN-PLOVER and was
alone on the beach further to the north.
Some Mendobirders way not yet be aware that a COMMON GREENSHANK has
been seen in McKinleyville, HUM, CA on Aug 27, 28, and 29. Contact the
