      Wed, 16 Jul 2008 -- The shorebird habitat at the Ukiah Sewage
      Treatment Plant ponds is not very good now, but some migrants are
      hugging the narrow margins under the overhanging knotweed. There was
      a group of 45 Least Sandpipers and among them two different birds: one
      bird with extensive white in the secondaries and upper wing coverts -
      apparently an aberrant Least Sandpiper, and a paler, dark-legged bird
      - possibly a Semipalmated Sandpiper. I was unable to get an
      identifying view.
      Some odd, continuing summer birds for the ponds were a female
      Bufflehead, a male Ring-necked Duck, a Western Grebe, and a Clark's Grebe.
