      Hi -- There was a Baird's Sandpiper along with an adult Semipalmated
      Sandpiper at Inglenook Creek mouth this morning. The SemiSand had
      a very, short bill an was quite pale (like the one found by Curtis Marantz
      east of the Ten Mile River bridge in late July).

      There were not very many other shorebirds along the four mile walk. Numbers
      and variety have dwindled considerably. Also seen were (12) Snowy Plovers,
      Greater Yellowlegs, Short-billed Dowitcher, Red-necked Phalarope, Blk-bellied
      Plover, Whimbrel, Western and Least Sandpipers, Sanderlings,and other
      expected species. The Surf Scoters are coming in, with at least 75 off Ward
      Ave. Also, California Gulls have been increasing over the last 3 weeks. I have
      had Marbled Godwit almost every week except today.

      Mammals: Just offshore there were several Humpbacked Whales and a
      few Rizzo's Dolphins between Laguna Point cove and Fen Creek mouth.
      The whales and dolphins were very active!
